The Meanest Paleo Bars

A friend shared this recipe when we first did a Paleo Challenge at the gym.  Allegedly, they are knock-off “Lara Bars”, although I’ve never had a Lara Bar so I couldn’t swear to that.  However, it is a great way to fight the afternoon munchies or to take on the trail.   Here is...

A Partially Paleo Easter Menu

Easter is almost upon us and I am looking forward to hosting family at our house.   It will be an interesting challenge to put together a menu that appeals to both the cave people (Mike & I) and the “neolithic eaters” (aka everyone else).  Some of the menu will be primal (P), others will...

Paleo-Friendly Hot Sauces

We enjoy a good kick on our food and hot sauce is a great way to add some flavor.  Unfortunately, most contain icky ingredients, like soybean oil or high fructose corn syrup.  Mike is partial to habanero-based sauces (many are cayenne-based), so whenever I see one with good ingredients, I buy it.  Here are...

So, as I’ve mentioned quite a few times here on the blog, I participated in a “Performance Nutrition Challenge” at our Crossfit gym box.   Back in January, I and others, paid $60 to participate, and then spent two months training hard and eating clean. “Paleo” or a “caveman diet” is the most common description...

Menu Plan Monday March 12th

I’ve been taking advantage of my freedom to eat some junk this weekend, but I’m looking forward to getting back on the wagon and eating clean this week.  Here’s this week’s menu — everything is paleo/primal friendly. Sunday was  Avocado Bacon Burgers (minus the bun) with sauteed onions and mushrooms (YUM!).  The burgers are...

Balsamic Glazed Baked Pork Chops

I was hankering to make a balsamic pork chop recipe, so I scoured the web to see what was out there.   I found a great looking recipe on Epicurious / Gourmet Magazine, and made a few tweaks to make it my own. I buy my pork chops at Wegmans — the boneless center-cut club...

Crazy for Crossfit

You may or may not remember, but back in November, I started working out at my husband’s Crossfit gym box.  I had been out of shape, getting fatter and frustrated with myself for not doing anything about it. Initially, I found the workouts and the whole concept super-intimidating, but it didn’t last long, and...
