Maple Rosemary Roasted Chicken and Veggies (Paleo/Primal/Gluten-Free)

Happy March! I suppose it’s halfway through March, but doesn’t it feel like it just started? So the Crockpot Challenge was a success!

10 Tips for Surviving Grad School (Without a Microwave)

Okay, so truth is…I do have a microwave. But it’s never used for cooking a meal, mostly just for reheating my coffee. Or warming up some coconut butter. Eating well is so crucial to staying healthy. Making a habit of microwave meals or grabbing fast food are great ways to make yourself tired or sick, or…
