When I worked in an office, there was a little bakery down the street that served delicious morning glory muffins packed full of raisins, nuts, and other good stuff. I had a little fun in the kitchen and came up with my own version. Make good mornings great with Paleo Morning Glory Muffins! When I worked in an office, there was a little bakery down the street that served delicious morning glory muffins. Each one was packed…

Hi, friends! I’ve mentioned on the blog in recent months, I’ve limited the amount of eggs I’m eating due to skin issues (acne) that I’ve dealt with which seems like forever. My skin improved dramatically, so I slowly started to incorporate eggs again – basically, 2-3 eggs per week because, well, I missed them (I love a good egg sandwich!) and they’re so good for you. At first, I didn’t have any sort of reaction,…

Hi, guys! I’m so excited to share a recipe from Real Food Slow Cooker Recipes, a new ebook by Arsy Vartanian from Rubies & Radishes.

As you know, I love a good slow cooker recipe, especially ones that are easy, nutritious, and delicious, and she kindly…

Hi, guys! Happy FRIDAY! I started this morning with a big, fluffy bowl of Paleo “oatmeal.” It was basically a simpler version of my recipe for “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats, but it turned out lighter and fluffier. I didn’t have any ground flaxseed, so maybe it didn’t weigh down the egg whites as much? I have no idea, but it was quite an awesome breakfast! Paleo “Oatmeal” Ingredients: 1 banana, mashed 3/4 cup liquid egg…

Sick of eggs for breakfast? If you follow a Paleo diet, you might want some eggless Paleo breakfast ideas. I mean, sometimes eggs seem like the only thing for breakfast, right? My CrossFit box recently started a new Paleo challenge and one of my CrossFit friends said she is already sick of eggs for breakfast, so her comment inspired this post. If you’re tired of the same old egg breakfast or maybe you have an allergy…

Gooooood morning! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! I never got my act together with meal planning over the weekend, so I didn’t go grocery shopping until yesterday afternoon. I’m typically on top of meal planning, but I just wasn’t in the mood for it on Sunday morning. Nothing sounded appealing and the usual meals I make sounded soooo boring, so I pulled up PaleOMG for some inspiration. PaleOMG is my…

Good morning! Happy Thursday, friends! I haven’t done a day-in-the-life post for quite awhile now””you know, with my meals and snacks and all that jazz. I actually kind of miss writing them sometimes, so I thought it was time for one. With that said, here’s a peek into my Wednesday! Breakfast My morning started with my new favorite breakfast: applesauce mixed with Paleo “granola” and fresh blueberries. It’s the easiest and quickest breakfast to throw…

I love dessert recipes that are delicious and semi-healthy at the same time. It’s like getting the best of both worlds! Having your carrots and eating your cake too (or something like that)! This recipe for “blueberry pie” is so simple to make and takes just five minutes (or less) to prepare from start to finish. It only requires four ingredients (five if you prefer a sweeter flavor), so you can easily whip it up…

Hello, hello! Here’s my final recap of the “WODs and Paleo Retreat” with Destino Retreats and The Trip Tribe. I’ve really enjoyed recapping my trip for you guys, and I hope you’ve really enjoyed reading about it! Breakfast On the final day of our trip, I woke up tired and sore (four days of non-stop activity plus a throwdown will do that to ya!), so I was a little slow starting my morning, but once…

Day 2 was a busy one! Breakfast It started with a delicious breakfast at the hotel. I ordered the fresh fruit plate with baked sweet potatoes and sausage on the side as well as a glass of freshly pressed green juice. Simple, delicious, nutritious. After breakfast, the group headed outside to the pool area for a sports medicine session with Ty and Josh. They shared a number of mobility and strengthening exercises, which were specific…
