Cheesy Kale Chips and The Truth About Kale (Paleo/Dairy-Free/Nut-Free)

Months ago a friend of mine posted this article, “The Dark Side of Kale” and I panicked. I was devastated before I even read the article (I tend to jump to conclusions). It turns out that too many raw cruciferous vegetables can lead to hypothyroidism (to sum it up). Kale is at the top of…

Disney Cruise Recap Part III – What I Read

In case you missed it, here’s Disney Cruise Recap I – What I Did and Disney Cruise Recap II – What I Ate. Graduate school made me forget a little bit how much I love to read. Since I graduated one month and 9 days ago I have read 8 1/2 books. It’s been lovely. One…

#shesharestruth: Titus 2:1-5

Good morning from the beautiful island of Kaua’i! This morning I’m linking up with She Reads Truth. I’ve mentioned this incredible community in my ‘What I’m Loving Now’ posts. If you’re here from the She Reads Truth page, welcome sisters. You all mean more to me than you know.

Disney Cruise Recap Part II – What I Ate

In case you missed it: Disney Cruise Recap, Part I You guys. Y’all. This food was so so good. Even the buffet was excellent (in my opinion, buffets are typically mass-produced sub-par food that encourages over eating). I took less pictures than I planned to, mostly because I was too excited to eat whatever had…

On the Road with Paleonola

Oh goodness, life is moving so fast y’all! I finished my final clinical placement, passed my licensing exam and I’m on my way to Abilene to graduate! These last few weeks have been insane and I truly believed that Paleonola helped me survive! I had the pleasure of sampling their Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie…

Sun-dried Tomato and Spinach Quiche (Nut-Free Option)

Don’t forget that you can win raw honey for one more week!    I’m a huge fan of make-ahead breakfast. Preferably something a little fancy, and full of flavor, protein and healthy fats. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day…so even if its on the go, I want it to be good. I often make…

No-Bake Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons and Free Raw Honey (Paleo/Vegan)

So let’s celebrate with some macaroons, why don’t we? These would be great for your Easter brunch, lunch or dinner tomorrow! They feature Tropical Traditions…

Easy Homemade Almond Milk

When I first cut Coffee Mate out of my life, I used full fat coconut milk or the occasional half and half in my coffee. It’s pretty good…but the minute I realized how easy homemade almond milk is to make (and then tried it), I can’t go back. I’ll splurge on half and half when…

I Have a Beautiful Body

I’m making a pact with myself. The comparison needs to stop. It’s funny, I think I struggled less with body image when I was 25 pounds heavier. Maybe there’s a fear in me that I will go back to what I was. Even just saying that now, I have to stop myself and ask, “so…
