3 minute Paleo Chia Seed “Pudding”

Chia Pudding 1

Now that I have an infant, I'm looking for fast, easy, no-cook foods to eat.  I had been eating some dairy while I was pregnant, and kept eating it for couple of weeks after baby Miles arrived because it was easy.  I was having full fat greek yogurt with berries and nuts for breakfast, it was quick to eat, had decent protein, and kept me full until lunch.  Then I started having a really fussy baby, and the most common food issue is dairy, so I pulled dairy out of my diet - something I was … [Read more...]

Paleo Plantain Pancakes – Grain and Nut Free

Paleo Pancakes 1

Breakfast is Back! Easy Egg Recipe

April 2013 Egg Cassarole

Eating breakfast is something that I have a love / hate relationship with. I like breakfast foods but don't like having to wake up earlier in order to cook and eat breakfast - I'd rather sleep an extra twenty minutes and fast until noon or throw some grass-fed butter and coconut oil into the blender along with my coffee to start my day. So this week I brought breakfast back in my house, and decided to go back to making the weekly baked egg casserole that I used to make when I was eating … [Read more...]

This past weekend from March 28 - 30th I attended the 2nd annual Paleo Fx - Ancestral Movement - Theory to Practice in Austin Texas.  It was a total of 2.5 days, with 21 hours surrounded by Paleo people and emerged in the adventures of Paleo-land.  48 possible sessions (not including cooking demos or workout options) of which I was able to attend 19, and met a whole lot of like-minded people.  Here is what my days looked like: Day 1: Nora Gedgaudes; Dr. Cate Shanahan; Dr. Terry Wahls; … [Read more...]
