Paleo Chick-Fil-A nuggets


When Taylor of Tayste of Paleo reached out and asked if I would be interested in having her guest post her Paleo Chick-Fil-A nuggets, I was thrilled. I am a big fan of her blog and her Instagram account, so naturally I was so excited to share her brilliant work with you here. You can also find Taylor on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter. I grew up on a dairy farm in Southern Colorado so there are a lot of times that I incorporate dairy into my diet. My website and my vision are all about … [Continue Reading...]

Skirt Steak with Radish & Cucumber Salsa


We just got back from a really sweet little family vacation. We spent 4 days on the Russian River in an amazing little cabin. It was decorated perfectly. The kitchen was so adorable, I just couldn't get out of it. I wanted to take more photos of the cabin and our food to share with you guys, but since it is nestled in the woods, the lighting was hard to work with. We unplugged our cell phones and computers. We spent our days eating incredible meals and playing in the river. It was really … [Continue Reading...]

When Hannah of Hannah's Healthy Bakery reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try her Paleo-friendly treats, I was ecstatic! I mean... paleo treats, that I don't have to bake myself? Yes, please! If you have been reading my blog for awhile, then you probably know I don't like baking. All that measuring and mess is not my thing.

Paleo & Gluten-free Dining in Santa Cruz, CA

Paleo SC Final

If you are anything like me, the first thing you do when you plan a vacation is you start researching the food options. I really love exploring restaurants in new areas. Since we don't go out to eat that often, I like my meals out to count. I google the heck out of terms like farm-to-table Santa Cruz, CA [insert city of choice]. So far, this research has paid off. We have enjoyed some incredible farm-to-table dining on our last few trips. See where we ate when we went to Austin for our babymoon … [Continue Reading...]

Paleo Coffee Ice Cream

Paleo Coffee Ice Cream

I am so excited to share this recipe with you. Coffee ice cream has been my favorite flavor since I was a little kid! When I was in elementary school and I would go to Baskin Robbins with my best friend and her family, I would always order Jamoca (their version of coffee ice cream). I rarely have ice cream now, unless my brother in law makes it by hand with his vintage ice cream maker (cause who could say no to that?) or the occasional grass-fed artisan ice cream. This is mostly because dairy … [Continue Reading...]
