A Super Quick, Delicious Paleo Breakfast

I know that a lot of people - Paleo or not - struggle with breakfast because it can be a time consuming process. Frying up eggs, makin' the bacon, and adding veggies in there can take a while. Even No Oat Oatmeal and things like that can be a hassle. I wanted to let you know about the super quick Paleo breakfast I've been eating lately. Time is always of the essence in my life, and I'd rather be doing … Continue reading

The One Food I Never Ever Eat

Before I removed gluten from my diet, I was overweight, I suffered from IBS (gut pain, constipation, diarrhea), I had super itchy skin that kept me awake at night, I binged on sugar all the time, my skin was inflamed and broken out, and I was very depressed. That's why I never, ever, ever eat gluten. Even at restaurants. Ever. And I think if other people knew how powerful gluten was in their own bodies, they'd stop eating it forever, too. And … Continue reading


Help! My diet is boring! (Recipe Inside)

If you’re anything like anyone who’s ever not succeeded with a diet... I’m willing to bet BOREDOM was a big culprit. It’s really easy to get into a rut and start eating the same thing over and over... feel frustrated... and then give up. This is especially true with the Paleo diet because it limits nearly all pre-packaged (and many restaurant) foods. The reason I’m writing this is because I found one more way you can finally get all the amazing benefits of eating … Continue reading

Do Calories Count?

"Calories don't matter! Just eat Paleo and you'll be fine." Sound familiar? This is a common theme in the Paleo world. So I feel a little timid coming out and saying that I think calories DO matter. That is, in certain contexts. I don't think calories should just be dismissed as a mythical concept that doesn't have any bearing on your health or weight. And I certainly don't think that people who ARE overweight and desperately needing to lose fat … 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
