Hi, guys! Happy Friday! Here’s the first giveaway of the April Cookbook Challenge! It’s the chance to win a copy of Practical Paleo, which is one of my very favorite cookbooks. Here’s my full review. I made two delicious recipes from Practical Paleo this week (Savory Baked Chicken Legs and Broc-Cauli Chowder with Bacon) and both of them were super easy to prepare, delicious, nutritious, and definitely ones that I will cook again in the…

Hi, guys! So, this is the final week of my grocery budget experiment. I had another successful shopping at Whole Foods and came in under budget, so my plan is to continue to shop there on a weekly basis with a trip to Trader Joe’s probably about once a month to stock up on certain items that tend to be cheaper there (i.e. nut butter, almond flour). I have to admit, I’m actually really surprised…

YUM! I loved, loved, loved today’s lunch. It included a bunch of Crispy Curried Sweet Potato Coins! Lunch also included a couple of leftover Spiced Mini Burgers from last night’s dinner. My plate was filled with a bunch of food orbs and it just didn’t look pretty, so I didn’t bother to snap a pic, but I promise it was delicious! So, as you probably know, I’m a tad obsessed with the recipes in Practical…

Ever since I started cooking from Practical Paleo and Well Fed, I’ve been really into spice blends. Both cookbooks (especially Practical Paleo) have a ton of recipes that literally spice up your meals. When I made the Sweet Potato Coins from Practical Paleo a few weeks ago, I fell in love with the Curry Spice Blend that the recipe calls for. It’s a blend of curry powder, garlic powder, paprika, cinnamon, and sea salt, and,…

I don’t even know where to begin with how much I love Practical Paleo. I’ve read through it twice now and I open it daily to reference something or make one of the recipes from it. It’s pretty much everything you’ll ever need for starting out with Paleo and a whole-foods lifestyle. The first part of the book covers what Paleo is all about and why some of what we’ve been taught about good nutrition is wrong. It includes…

Good morning! Happy Monday! I hope you guys had a fabulous weekend! Friday On Friday afternoon, Murphy and I drove to Fenway Park for the 1000 Pugs photo shoot. We arrived right on time and then met the photographer, Amanda, who spent a solid 20 minutes photographing Murphy. He was a natural. And highly motivated by food. Amanda had Murphy pose in 5 or 6 different places around Fenway Park. At one point, she got…

Greetings from Logan International Airport! I’m on my way to Fitbloggin’, so I’m taking advantage of the free Wifi to blog right now. Yay, baby. Breakfast I started my morning with a two-ingredient pancake made with two eggs, one banana, and a big scoop of almond butter for some extra staying power. Travel makes me a hungry gal! After breakfast, I took Murphy to the dog park to run out some of his pent up…

Hello, hello! This morning’s breakfast was my usual two-ingredient pancake, but with chia seeds in the mix. (I know, I’m crazy.) I added a scoop of sunflower butter to my pancake and drank a glass of Dandy Blend with almond milk. I also drank a mug of bone broth (aka “meat tea”) with breakfast. I know, it’s totally hippy-dippy, but a lot of what I’ve been reading (and listening to) has suggested it, so I…

Greetings from the Bolt Bus! I’m blogging on my way down to New York City right now. Hooray for in-bus WiFi! Breakfast I started my morning with my usual two-ingredient pancake, but this time I added an extra egg for some staying power. I topped my pancake with blueberries and a scoop of sunflower butter. I later went back for a second and third scoop of sunflower butter””might as well finish off the jar! The…
