If you haven’t already, you must pay a visit to these two cool cave girls at Cave Girl Cafe!  They are offering up paleo/gluten free themed greeting cards (I LOVE the bacon heart card) as well as coffee and travel mugs.  I’ve attached pics of the samples that they so graciously sent to me, but you can see what they offer for yourself at their website!  With the holidays fast approaching, why not send your greetings to friends and loved ones with a Paleo themed card and some awesome, sustainably sourced coffee!!  Thanks Cave Girls!!

Bedtime Blueberries…

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.

School Lunch and a Trader Joe’s Find

I have had a couple requests for more school lunch ideas.  I posted one on my Facebook page a few weeks ago, which I have also added to this post, along with another picture of a common school lunch for my boys.

I also had a blog reader email me about a pre-seasoned salmon that he found at Trader Joe’s.  I usually steer away from the pre-packaged or pre-seasoned food but this one is GREAT! [Read more…]

Everyday Paleo Pizza

Paleo Pizza

Last year a trainer friend of mine at Norcal turned me on to paleo pizza made with almond meal crust.  Although I like this pizza and the crust works, I wanted to find a way to make the crust DELICIOUS, rather than just a vessel for the pizza toppings.  With a few tweaks to the original, I came up with this pizza crust recipe that I love so much that I am excited to make it again and use it for more than just pizza.
