I’d never do another Whole30 again!

Whole30 gets a lot of press – good or bad, it’s still attention. Last year I completed my first and only Whole30. After a month without dairy, grains, legumes (including my beloved peanut butter), sugar, alcohol, daily superfood shake, and baked goods, I felt accomplished and proud of myself for completing such a huge feat....

Tastes like sunshine

Move over PB, there’s a new jar of goodness in town! I love peanut butter – on toast, in cookies, straight from the jar – you name it. So the first time I encountered SunButter, I quickly dismissed it. Nothing could replace my beloved PB. But a couple of months ago I thought I would... Continue Reading →

No bones about it

At first mention, the name “bone broth” sounds a little chilling and gruesome – it’s everything but. Remember when your grandma used to simmer an entire ham bone to make a pot of split pea soup? It’s all about the flavor and, in this case, the healing properties. Did you know that bone broth can... Continue Reading →

My fever was pushing 104° and I had terrible pains in my lower back - like someone had repeatedly kicked me. I was... Continue Reading →

Let’s get wild!

I'm pretty skeptical when it comes to trying new foods that claim to be both healthy and great tasting. My taste buds get fooled a lot. I once tried a meatless jerky, which literally looked like a coffee-stained paper towel. How did it taste? Just wrong. You won't find any of that weirdness with Wild... Continue Reading →

Eat three meals a day, large and nutritious enough to keep you full until your next meal. Don't... Continue Reading →

Whole30: halfway there

As soon as I decided to do the Whole30 I started working on my meal plans and grocery lists for the first 15 days. (You can never be too prepared.) I compiled recipes from Pinterest, and two cookbooks: Well Fed 2 by Melissa Joulwan and The Whole30: The Official 30-Day Guide to Health and Food... Continue Reading →

You copycat!

Larabars are one of my favorite snacks, but the ones I like (Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip) are not Whole30 approved. I thought about making my own, subbing cashews for the peanuts  and leaving out the chocolate chips. Then I found out there is already a Larabar for that - Cashew Cookie. I eagerly tried it,...
