Cinnamon Apple Pear Pecan Tartlets

Cinnamon Apple Pear Pecan Tartlets

We recently had a pot luck at the gym. As usual, I was very impressed by the delicious dishes our athletes brought to share. It became evident, however, that if you ever wanted someone to cater a paleo dessert party, there was one person to call: Becky B. She wowed us with these cinnamon apple … Continue reading

Pineapple Stuffed Chorizo Meatballs

Pineapple Stuffed Chorizo Meatballs

It all started last March with the most delicious burger I’ve had in years: PaleOMG’s Pineapple Stuffed Chorizo Burger. Holy. Smokes. I love chorizo, I love burgers, and I love pineapple. Combine them into a triple whammy topped with a tasty avocado puree and you have pure decadence. I’m pretty sure Michael and I polished … Continue reading

WLC Meal: Greek Feast

WLC Meal: Greek Feast

In a change from the previous WLC, Michael and I are doing this one at an intermediate level. This is the subject of a much longer, non-recipe-related blog post that has been marinating for the last few months, but, the takeaway is that I’ll be posting a wider variety of recipes this time around. And, … Continue reading

WLC Week 7 – Shop, Prep, and Eat!

As someone who tries to buy locally and/or seasonally to the greatest extent possible, it’s hard not to notice the sparseness in the produce aisle as winter winds down and the new growing season has yet to spring into full swing.

WLC Week 5 – Shop, Prep, and Eat!

We’re over the halfway point! And, to celebrate (or embrace it, depending on how you’re feeling), we’re going to try something totally new for breakfast. We’re also making a chicken pesto pasta recipe from PaleOMG that is about the closest I ever thought I’d get to fettuccine alfredo ever again. Get excited… Clockwise, from top … Continue reading

Roasted Pork Shoulder

Roasted Pork Shoulder

Or, pernil al horno if you’re feeling fancy. In case you had any confusion, I’m a pretty big fan of pork. It was pork, in fact, that broke my years-long teenage commitment to vegetarianism. While bacon is the gateway meat of many a temporary vegetarian, it was pepperoni for me. That spicy, salty, crispy goodness … Continue reading

The end of this week marks the halfway point of the Whole Life Challenge! How are you guys doing? Hopefully you’ve been trying new recipes and new vegetables and generally enjoying things without too much stress. This week, we’re back to breakfast casseroles; this one from Multiply Delicious is a new favorite. The larger pan … Continue reading
