Paleo Cricket Flour

This year was my 4th time attending Paleo f(x), the largest paleo event ON EARTH. Every year  I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. Anticipation of Day #1 leaves me SUPER excited and a little sleepless. The mission of the conference is to share ways to apply ancestral health principles in today’s world.  Here…

Paleo Helper

Paleo Helper Recipe

I’m embarrassed to admit that as a teenager, I loved Hamburger Helper. It was quick, tasty, and I felt like I was actually cooking- even though I was basically just browning meat, measuring water, and emptying packets of stuff from a box. I don’t eat unhealthy processed food anymore, but I still love the comforting…

Cashew Cardamom Butter

Cashew Cardamom Butter

I was at Paleo f(x) 2015, Barefoot Provisions booth. The woman handed me a spoon and said, “Here. Try this”. My knees buckled. That tiny taste of JEMRaw’s Cashew Cardamom Butter was otherworldly. The smooth, rich, spicy-but-not-too-spicy flavors were somehow perfectly balanced. And there is added sugar, so it was sweet. I had also been on…

Perfect Paleo Ghee

Simmering Ghee

YOU MUST MAKE THIS RECIPE!!!! If you don’t, monsters will come out of your closet and get you!  Ok. Enough of that. It’s just that I’ve bought several brands of ghee, and they range from blah to so-gross-I-can’t-eat-them. People tell me they don’t like ghee. But I contend that they just haven’t yet had MY homemade…

Perfect Paleo Pumpkin Muffins

Paleo Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin season is not over, people! It lasts at least through New Year’s. Or Valentine’s Day. Or whenever Starbucks stops selling pumpkin spice lattes. I’m a HUGE pumpkin fan. When I was a kid, my mom would bake us whatever cake we wanted for our birthdays. My birthday is in July, and I always wanted…

Sausage Thighs

Sausage Thighs

Sometime around early high school, in the middle of my vending-machine diet, I decided my legs didn’t look good in shorts. Not only did they not look good, but my thighs looked like amorphous, mushy sausages. Yuck. No more shorts! For 20 years, I only owned 2 pairs of workout shorts. Yes, I hated sitting…

Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat

I’m shocked. Or at least my inner child is shocked. She CANNOT believe what happened yesterday. Frankly, she’s disappointed because I made it through Halloween without feeling tempted to eat ANY candy. None whatsoever. Not one bite. I even helped two, highly-successful trick-or-treaters sort their loot. We intensely debated the merits of candy bars versus…

Deodorant for Divas

Deodorant for Divas

My inner diva doesn’t like to admit it, but I stink. I know, I know- smelly armpits are primal. But it’s embarrassing and I don’t love smelling myself. I haven’t used aluminum-containing antiperspirant for 15 years, so I expect to sweat. Natural deodorant wasn’t a big deal until I moved to Austin, TX where the average…

Perfect Paleo Strawberry Shake

Perfect Paleo Strawberry Shake

It’s hot here in Austin, Texas- my phone says it’s 99 outside. Way too hot to cook! Instead, I’m finding ways to cool off, like with this strawberry shake. Strawberries are a low-sugar fruit, and stevia sweetens without adding any sugar. But the key ingredient is the vanilla. Like magic, vanilla turns a low-sugar smoothie…
