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! We got a little sick of the “crockpot texture” – where everything is a little mushy, not like baby food mushy, just you know…crockpot-y. But it sure was nice being able to come…

Things I’m Loving Now (November)

Okay, I realize it’s been months since I told you what I’m loving. I took a little break from my blog for a few reasons and the most important reason was to focus on relationships. It’s been a beautifully exhausting journey building relationships in Hood River. This place is special and I’m thankful daily that the Lord…

Jacob Williams’ 2010 Merlot

Have you heard? Paleo Lifestyle Magazine is having a Link-Up Party and the recipes all look amazing! And they all take 30 minutes or less! So…three things I love about Hood River (and The Gorge): everybody has chickens (farm fresh eggs for days), quality coffee is valued and served, and there are at least 40 wineries in…

Asian Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

So I’ve just moved to the most beautiful little town. Hood River, Oregon is just 45 minutes East of Portland nestled right along the Columbia River. I can see Washington from my front porch! I also have a lovely view of Mt. Adams (Washington) and if I run just down the street a bit I…

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)

I know, I’ve been a little absent lately. I’ve been completing my final clinical placement of graduate school and studying for the PRAXIS Speech-Language Pathology licensure exam. And today…I PASSED! 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…

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…
