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...

WFMW:  Ascorbic Acid to Keep Your Guacamole Green!

Have you ever made guacamole and not finished it all in one sitting?  In our house, this rarely happens, but when it does — I’m stuck with still delicious guacamole that looks brown and unappetizing the next day. I recently discovered a secret trick for keeping your guac looking fresh and green — ascorbic...

Cooking with Little Kids

I was recently asked me how to get the cooking  done when you have little kids underfoot.    I remember well how stressful and challenging the meal prep/dinner hour can be (also known as the “witching hour”) with little ones, so I thought I would put together some lessons learned and tips.  I should...

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...

Bacon Avocado Deviled Eggs (Paleo)

It’s already well-documented that I love deviled eggs.   When our gym organized a potluck Paleo party on St. Patrick’s Day, I wondered if I could come up with something green to bring. Inspiration struck when I realized Deviled Eggs + Avocado = Awesome.  A quick Google search helped me find this fantastic recipe from...

Paleo Mayo 2.0

When I began the paleo challenge at my gym, I quickly realized a whole lot more food choices would be open to me, if I could learn to make “paleo mayo”. What is “paleo mayo”, you ask?  Basically regular grocery store mayonnaise is made from processed oils that are not beneficial to the body...

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...

Jicama Pepper Carrot Slaw

It was my turn to bring brunch food to my mom’s group and I wanted to find a tasty Paleo-friendly dish to share with a decidedly non-Paleo crowd.  I started browsing Pinterest and got inspired to make a jicama salad with peppers and cabbage.   Credit goes to these two sources as my primary inspiration:...

Chicken Zoodle Soup

I have enjoyed making homemade chicken noodle soup for quite a while, but now that we’ve “gone paleo”, I’ve had to adapt my recipe a little bit.  After browsing various paleo blogs, I discovered you could make zucchini noodles using a nifty julienne peeler (hat tip to Nom Nom Paleo). There several varieties available...
