Kettlebells

Homemade Baby Wipe Solution

Homemade Baby Wipe Solution

Have you ever read the ingredient label on baby wipes? They usually consist of a long list of unpronounceable words. Some of these ingredients can even be hazardous to your baby’s health. Even the more natural brands often use preservatives and fragrances. Luckily, making your own wipe solution is not only healthy, but easy to do and cheaper than the store bought stuff! I've been making this for Indy since she was born. Most of the time, we just use a wet cloth wipe to wipe our baby’s … [Continue Reading...]

Paleo Slow Cooker N’Oatmeal

Paleo Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Indyanna (my two year old) started preschool recently and they do a group snack. Her school is really great and they let us send a Paleo version of whatever they are serving. Every few weeks, oatmeal is on the menu. We tried gluten-free steel cut oatmeal the first week and she really wasn't that into it. I created this Paleo Slow Cooker N'Oatmeal for her - loaded with butternut squash and some apples. Indyanna has been loving this! It's been a nice change from our usual eggs too. Since this … [Continue Reading...]

One of my favorite uses for … [Continue Reading...]

How to heal your gut naturally! [FREE Online Event!]

Digestion Sessions

How to heal your gut naturally! - Digestive problems are one of the main reasons people tend to try a Paleo diet and seek natural health solutions in general. I know that I have many friends, family and blog readers that suffer from gas, bloating, constipation and abdominal pain.

At … [Continue Reading...]

Slow Cooker Paleo Teriyaki Chicken

IMG_5016

This Paleo Teriyaki Chicken is the easiest recipe ever. I almost didn't post it because it feels funny sticking two things in a crock-pot and calling it a recipe. But, I figure most of you are super busy and could use more of these 5 minute prep recipes in your life. I use this Paleo-friendly teriyaki sauce for this slow cooker recipe. You should be able to find it at Whole Foods or a local health food store. It's really tasty and it's Whole30 friendly. Although it tastes a little sweet like … [Continue Reading...]
