Paleo Granola!

My friend gave me this recipe from paleotable.com over the summer, because a bunch of us were trying to eat ‘paleo’ and I was getting so sick of eggs and meat for breakfast.  Most other breakfast options are wheat and dairy, but not this granola. It beats almost every other I’ve tried, and it’s perfect…

Caveman Breakfast Cups

I recently visited my friend Amanda in Seattle (yes we have the same name, taught at the same school, and lived in the same apartment complex just by chance), and while I was visiting, we made these delicious caveman-satisfying breakfast cups for her carnivorous husband. They’re simple and super easy. I usually make them the…

Chocolate Vegan Ice Cream

Paleo, vegan, healthy ice cream? Yup, it’s possible- Thanks to this delicious recipe that my friend, Cindi Mitchell, shared with me! This ‘ice cream’ is loaded with potassium, protein and vitamins, doesn’t have any sugar or dairy, and it tastes just like chocolate ice cream. On those days when you just want a sweet dessert… this will surely satisfy your craving. Before…

Arugula Fig Salad with Pecans and Honey Cider Dressing

Arugula is my favorite type of salad. To make it even better, this salad only takes 15 minutes (not even) to make. AND it looks like it’s gourmet (illusions illusions). If you have grilled chicken or salmon, you could always add some on top. This is a great as lunch, dinner, a side dish, appetizer,…

Sunflower Coconut Balls

Yup. Paleo protein balls of coconut and sunflower goodness. That’s all I have to say. Now, go make some: Ingredients: 1/2 cup sunflower seeds 1/3 cup sunflower butter 1/2 cup shredded coconut (and some extra to roll the balls in) 1/4 cup chopped dark chocolate (I used dark choc. chips) 2 tbsp honey (maple syrup…

Paleo Pizza Crust!!

To say that pizza is my favorite food of all time would  be an understatement. I have ABSOLUTELY no self control when it comes to this food.  Hence, I had to create a healthier option for the day when I decide to eat my own weight in pizza. Unfortunately, I attempted to make about 35…

Paleo PANCAKES!

As my friend Jack Johnson sings about making banana pancakes and pretending like it’s the weekend, … break it down, paleo style- Ingredients: 1 mushed ripe banana 1 egg white 1/3 cup almond flour 1/2 cup blueberries 1 tbsp vanilla protein drink (or almond milk will work great as well)  What To Do: 1. Beat mashed banana with…

BAM! (Paleo Gluten Free Banana Apple Muffins)

Gluten free, sugar-free, fake sugar-free, grain free… muffins that taste GOOD. Sidebar: I was at Panera the other day and saw that my favorite the ‘pumpkin muffin’ is 590 calories. That’s A LOT of gym time. This is what happens when there is 2.5 feet of blizzard snow outside waiting to be shoveled, I put…

Eating to Starve Cancer?

Did you know you can essentially starve cancer cells? True story. Watch this amazing talk from TED (below). If you don’t have time, I’ll give you the cliff note version. Our body can regulate capillary growth by growing capillaries to heal injures or pruning them back when they are not needed. Abnormal angiogenesis is at the…
