I’m tired as I type which reminds me to remind you that getting adequate sleep is more important than anything you might accomplish by staying up too late working on what “must” get done.  If we deprive ourselves of precious recovery time, life simply becomes less enjoyable as we continue to burn out emotionally and physically.

The Naked Factor is just a bonus… And a recipe (of course)!

img_9239Admittedly, I started eating paleo because I was tired of looking at my not so attractive nakedness in the mirror and I secretly and desperately wanted to be that hot mom in a bikini…..  Of course I was blind to the trillion other little health issues that plagued me; writing them off as normal.  I was blind to what eating paleo really had in store for me, and blind to the the fact that a paleo lifestyle would slowly but surely open my eyes to so many important life experiences that I would have missed out on otherwise.

First – a big thank you to Manimal Wear for sending me one of their promo t-shirts.  I was able to give the shirt a test run yesterday and wore it out and about with the boys and during my workout.  I’m sure I’ll be purchasing a couple more once the product has launched.

Ok, on to the food!! [Read more…]

How Hot is YOUR Kitchen?? – Another cooking demo….

Apparently my kitchen gets so hot that my coconut oil gets, “liquid-y”….

Along with having a lot of fun with our cooking demos, I am also inventing new words, and if anything, giving my family yet another reason to laugh at me!!

In this demo we make Savory Cauliflower Fried Rice, Pork Chops, and my Walnut Pesto Sauce. [Read more…]

Baa Baa Breakfast

Puerto Rican Beef

I was raised by a health nut, foodie mother who was as adventurous in life as she was in the kitchen.  My mom spent several summers in Mexico learning to speak Spanish, and coincidentally helped to fuel my love for the flavors!  Years later, I marry John – who’s father comes from Spanish decent and who’s mother’s heritage is from the Philippines and you can only imagine the whole other world of foods I was introduced to.

Meat n’ Veggies

meatnveggies

I have an on going nightly discussion with my 15 year old that goes something like this. “Hey mom, what’s for dinner?”  Me, “I don’t know, probably meat and veggies?”  My 15 year old, “Duh, I’m not sure why I even ask?”  And then we both laugh.

Eating paleo is just that, meat and veggies, not too complex when it comes right down to it, and the good news is – boring is not a part of this lifestyle. [Read more…]
