0-7

*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!

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...]

Paleo Travel Snacks – and a fun snack for home…

My family took a road trip this weekend and although family trips are fun, anyone with kids can attest that hungry travelers will be grumpy travelers so packing food to go is essential! Ideas for travel foods include: [Read more...]

Making It Happen…

I will admit that  I live in a paleo bubble of sorts.  As a trainer for Norcal I am surrounded by a huge community of friends who generally all eat paleo too.  When Robb Wolf and Nicki Violetti happen to be the folks you work for, that’s just kind of how it is… Which by the way, if you haven’t yet pre-ordered Robb’s book- I strongly suggest you do so!!  So, back to that paleo bubble I mentioned [Read more...]

Ginger Shrimp Salad and Curried Hash

If you haven’t noticed, I LOVE to cook  – but sometimes I get stuck in the same old chicken salad rut because it’s easy, and I know we all like it.  But today I needed an excuse to be in the kitchen, rather then venturing out into the 105 degree weather so the boys and I  got a bit creative in the kitchen and the results were blog worthy!!

Egg Cupcakes!

Who doesn’t want cupcakes for breakfast?  Really, if you had the option and you knew you wouldn’t end up on a sugar rushed carb crashed stomach turned bathroom fest, wouldn’t you go for it?

Well, now you can have cupcakes for breakfast or at least little mini crust-less quiches that are shaped like cupcakes and like my good friend Natalie said,  (amazing athlete, trainer, and paleo cook extraordinaire who came up with these tasty breakfast treats) “With a name like Egg Cupcakes, your kids will LOVE these for breakfast!”

I suggest making these on the weekend so you have breakfast ready for at least the first few mornings of your busy week.  The ingredients are versatile so get creative but here’s one of my favorite combos.

Egg Cupcakes

10 -12 eggs whisked well

1 green onion

2 small zucchini

3 big handfuls of spinach

1/2 a jar of roasted red and yellow peppers

6-8 slices of COOKED bacon

sea salt and black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 and grease two muffin pans with LOTS of coconut oil, butter, or ghee. Whisk all your eggs in a big bowl. In a food processor throw in the green onion, zucchini, bacon, and peppers and process until finely chopped but NOT smooth (yuck…).  Add  this mixture to your eggs.  Throw your spinach into the processor and finely chop and also add to your eggs. Mix the egg mixture well and using a 1/4 measuring cup, fill the muffin pans (you’ll be able to make 18-20 cupcakes).  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the eggs are set in the middle.  These are great to take on the go and I like mine with some sliced avocado and green salsa.

Enjoy!
