Food Glorious Food! My oldest son, Coby, was recently in the orchestra for the musical Oliver and the darn song “Food Glorious Food” will forever be stuck in my brain!!! However, the song is fitting because I love to cook and I love to eat and I have been doing a whole lot of both lately as I plow through finishing up my next book, Paleo Around The World – Italy! I am aware that I have been neglecting the recipe part of this blog which is what originally started Everyday Paleo to begin with, but I’m also aware of how much this little site has grown and how much support is needed to help others who are looking for answers as they begin or continue their paleo journey; and recipes alone do not provide all of the pieces to the puzzle. I’m hopeful that the information provided on this blog is inspiring and helpful to all of you, and all of us here at Everyday Paleo strive to give the highest quality information to you; straight from our hearts, knowledge and experiences.
*Note from Sarah: This latest post comes from Dana; our Director of Operations who is also a Baseball Mom Extraordinaire! Dana has food prep for her family down to a science and this summer she’s been traveling on the weekends to baseball tournaments for her two boys; which means preparing and planning ahead! In this post Dana explains how her quick and easy food prep is not only setting her family up for healthy meals while away on the weekends, but also saves big money while they travel. May this post help and inspire your family!
Busy Family Life, Summer Days, and Packing Paleo for Sports Tournaments!
Here I am, sipping coffee while grilling burgers and flank steak at 9am on a Saturday morning, as well as packing the cooler as we head out to yet another baseball tournament! While it’s possible to eat out successfully as a Paleo family, it’s certainly not something we want to do 2-3 times a day while traveling. Why? Not only is restaurant food inundated with unhealthy oils and hidden, unwanted ingredients; it’s just plain expensive. So here are some ways we feed our busy family daily and also how we pack our cooler for baseball tournaments. [Read more…]
One of our favorite summer time activities as a family is to spend the day under a giant oak tree at one of our local parks with a giant paleo picnic. It get’s really darn hot here in Chico but we have tons of trees and shade so often the best reprieve from the Chico heat is to find the coolest spot in the grass with some yummy paleo eats.
I was laughing when I posted Jason’s last article The Whole Enchilada because I KNEW that there were going to be some folks who thought – AWESOME – a paleo enchilada recipe; only to find out that alas, no food in this post but some very powerful words of wisdom from Jason instead. Just as important, but not quite as tasty. I thought I would make it up to all of you by posting an actual enchilada recipe straight from my book, Everyday Paleo.
My family has been on a frittata kick over the last couple of days; they are so easy, fun and delicious as well as a great way to add some variety to the standard eggs. I also have a scrumptious frittata recipe in my book but I have to say that I love these two new creations just as much as our old standby. [Read more…]
A nice beef roast is something I crave in the fall or winter months but I had a big ol’ grass fed chuck roast that was asking to be made; so I made it. I wanted to try something different then the standard roast in the oven or slow cooker so after being inspired by watching a recent Food Network show called Chopped, when one of the contestants rolled a giant elk tenderloin in a coffee spice mixture, I decided to make my own version and try it on our roast. The results? So good, beyond description really, you’ll just have to try it for yourself and let me know what you think! [Read more…]
