That's me with a bruised ego after failing on a rock climb.

The Formidable Force of Fear and Failure, and How to Overcome It

For the past month on my extended rock climbing trip, I've been struggling with failure, lack of confidence, and an overwhelming sense of negativity, punctuated by brief moments of triumph and poise. I love rock climbing. Sometimes I wonder why, though, in those moments when all of my muscles ache, the skin on my fingers is chafed raw, my heart is racing, and every cell in my body is saying, "What the hell are you doing, you dummy? This is so … Continue reading

Concerned Grandmother Believes Paleo Is Hurting Her Grandson

I recently received this comment below from a reader on my blog post called "Is Paleo Safe for Kids?" I think this question is a perfect representation of how so many grandmothers, aunts, uncles, teachers, friends, etc. feel about the paleo diet for kids. To be honest, her comment irks me a little with the whole "I don't care what she says - I'm feeding my grandson what I want to feed him," and the "fad diet" bit. But her concerns … Continue reading

Q&A: How does a vegetarian transition to Paleo?

Here's a really interesting question from a reader and my thoughts on the matter... I have been a vegetarian for almost three years and a few days ago I spoke to a friend that has been on the Paleo diet for a few months now. After speaking with her about all of the positive results she has seen so far I decided to change my whole lifestyle and transition into the Paleo diet. Previously my vegetarian diet was a lacto-ovo … Continue reading

paleo pumpkin flatbread

Paleo Pumpkin Flatbread Recipe

It's fall!! Time for pumpkin recipes! And what better recipe to start with than a Paleo BREAD recipe :) Well, Paleo flatbread, that is. I honestly couldn't figure out the proper bread-y description for this recipe, so I randomly chose "flatbread". I could just as easily have called them crepes, naan, tortillas, blintzes, pancakes, or wraps. Depending on how thick you make these, they could be all of those things. These flatbreads are my answer to my husband's inability to eat … Continue reading

paleo chopped sardine salad

Paleo Chopped Sardine Salad (It Sounds Gross But It’s Good!)

When it comes to salads, I don't like big leaves of lettuce or long strips of peppers on my fork. It makes me feel like I'm trying to cram a tree into my mouth. Maybe my mouth is just too small for all that? I don't know, but I much prefer chopped salads to any other kind of salad, and today I'm going to show you a delicious chopped salad involving sardines. Paleo Chopped Sardine Salad Can you see the yellow in … Continue reading

Isn't it pretty?

How I Stay Paleo When I’m Outside Climbing

I've been rock climbing outside more lately, since I'm living out of a van for the sole purpose of rock climbing. Well, I guess we're home-hunting, as well. During our travels this year, we're trying to find a new place to call our home. So far, we think the best home is the van, but we'll see how that changes over time... Anyway, girl's gotta eat out at the crag, so I thought I'd show you what kinds of things … Continue reading

Improving My Body Image By Living Without A Mirror Or A Scale

I have a client right now who has an eating disorder. After years of over-exercising and under-eating, she has extreme adrenal fatigue, and she's now struggling with my assignments to eat more and exercise less. Don't get me wrong: this girl is a determined bad-ass and so far she's doing what I've suggested, but it's hard for her. She's boxed herself into her body by her scale and the size of her clothes, and if either of those increases, her … Continue reading

Here’s A Quick Workout You Can Do At Home

There are times in all our lives when we want to exercise but there's just not enough time. Am I right? That used to happen to me a lot. I want to get my heart rate up and feel like I've done something, but I only have a half hour, or maybe only just 15 minutes. And you can't get any real exercise done in 15 minutes, right? Wrong! You can, and I've done it. In fact, we created a … Continue reading

She's a busy girl! But she'll tell you all about that in the interview below. Anyway, back to living primitively. You may … Continue reading


My Husband’s Battle with Sugar

My husband, Seth, was recently told by our naturopath that he was hypoglycemic and that he needed to cut down on his sugar intake dramatically or he was on his way to some pretty serious issues (autoimmune, hormonal, etc). I mean, we both knew that Seth ate a lot of sugar, but we didn't know he officially had an issue with it. This blog post is about how Seth was an otherwise-Paleo sugar addict, and he's successfully shaken himself of … Continue reading
