Primal Palate double whammy.

November 15, 2013  |  Food, Uncategorized  |  Share

So, I feel like a little bit of a jerk. Bill and Haley were nice enough to send me copies of their two amazing new books and I forgot to post it. You might have noticed that we have been a little absent around here lately. I love this blog and sharing with you all, but I am trying to spend more time with my family and more time working on two other business ventures. More to come on those lately. The reason recipes of also been scarce is pretty plan and simple. We haven't been creating new recipes. We have been keeping our diets pretty simple lately. For health and time reasons. It seems to be working for us. I am trying to decide wether to keep this site going. My time is just spent elsewhere right now. We will see. Now for the review... I have in my hands a...

I’m Bringing Sexy Back!

November 13, 2013  |  Food, Princess Paleo  |  Share

The title says it all. I’m finally doing something for me. Yes I’m so called “skinny” but if you asked me to run a mile. My heart would combust. I would never say that I let myself go after having kids but I would admit that I didn’t make time to actually be fit. What I mean by fit (my standards) is someone that could lift their own body weight if needed to climb over a fence or maybe get a few pull ups in. Or maybe if someone tried to harm me that I could sort of defend myself. I am a former athlete and it sickens me the way that I have “let myself go.” I’m trying really hard to tell myself that I’m not 16 anymore & that I need to re-establish those neuropath- ways of muscle memory. I’m just “a little” uncoordinated at times. I’m starting my second...

Book Review: Primal Moms Look Good Naked

Book Review: Primal Moms Look Good Naked

Let’s just be honest here. I have never read one Primal/ Paleo book before. Only cookbooks J So when Peggy sent me a complimentary copy I was super excited! The structure of the book, with it’s bold headlines and easy to read, concise paragraphs are any readers dream come true. Peggy has researched & referenced so many books & websites and placed them into one complete book. I just enjoyed reading the book from cover to cover. The book is not only about pregnancy let’s just get that question out of the way. She speaks about what it truly means to be a beautiful primal woman. This requires nutritional based food,  plenty exercise and reduction of stress. Although, much Emphasis on Food. The most exciting facts for me since I have already had my children are about collagen, stretch marks, cellulite, hormones, varicose veins, healthy hair, abdominal muscles, and saggy...

Beyond Bacon Review and Giveaway! Wahoo

July 2, 2013  |  Food, Life  |  Share

I was able to help The Paleo Parents test out some of their recipes for the book, so I have been excited for a long long time to receive a copy of this book. And wholly pig they did not disappoint. This is way more than I expected.  The recipes alone are worth the price of the book. But the recipes aren't all that they provide you with. The book starts off with a foreword by none other than Joel Salatin. If you don't know who Joel is, Google it. You will love him, I guarantee it. Then Stacey and Matt layout the whole process of the pig. From why you should focus on pasture raised pig, what cuts to get to the sciencey side of benefits of the pork to the so called Hazards of pork. The most informative part for me was the basics section. How to smoke pork, how...

Ground Beef Jerky Recipe (Nightshade Free)

Ground Beef Jerky Recipe (Nightshade Free)

A few months ago a purchased an awesome jerky gun. I bought it at Cabela's when I was picking up my 1/2 cow in the parking lot. Fitting right. I bought it here because they had a high quality stainless steel model. I didn't want to get plastic because I have heard they can break. But, if you just want to try out a cheaper option totally go with a plastic one. I love my jerky gun. Plus I am able to use ground beef which is so much cheaper than buying a hunk of meat. I made two different recipes. Mainly because I wanted to tweak one and came up with a whole different recipe. I ran out of Coconut Aminos so I had to improvise. It worked out though. Although I have no idea what to call the recipes. Also, I didn't use any nightshades because I am in the...

Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar Beverage

Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar Beverage

Does anyone out there try to take ACV in the morning? Do you find it just revolting to drink. I know I do. But I know the benefits out weight that taste. Luckily I came across Bragg's ACV drink. It tastes great, but costs like $3-4 and has a little bit a stevia in it. I know the amount of stevia is minimal, but it's still there. So I figured I could make this drink myself. Granted its not as sweet as the Bragg's drink, but it's still easier to drink than straight up ACV. I believe I put more ACV in my version too. Its a lot darker so, yes it is stronger tasting. Benefits? Well if you just google Benefits of ACV you will get all kinds of answers. I started drinking it to help aid digestion and get things going in the morning. I take a few large...

Our Responsibility. Part One.

February 27, 2013  |  Life  |  Share

I am going to try my hand at writing more posts, that aren't just food recipes. I am sure the first few posts like this will be a little scrambled as I am not a writer and my thoughts are all over the place. I am not sure where to begin. I guess I could talk about my kids and how proud I was the other day at a Birthday party my oldest, Nolan 3.5 yrs. attended. I was proud of him because there was pizza and cake to be had, but he turned it down for apples and the Paleo cookies that we brought. Of course he wanted more than the two cookies we gave him, but he was really hungry because he didn't want to eat dinner before the party. Snacks have been a struggle in our house lately. At school he has been eating the snack provided, not...

Orange Ground Beef

I know a couple posts ago I mentioned how large the gap was between new posts, well this beats it. It felt like 6 months but was two months. And even more than that since my last recipe post. I will admit to getting lazy. I am constantly making new recipes I just never write down what I put in it nor do I take pictures. I hope this changes. This post wont have the best photos, I took them with my iPhone, but its a recipe and it was really good. Hope you enjoy. Orange Ground Beef Ingredients: 1/2 Cup Toasted Coconut Flakes (toast at 300• for about 15 minutes stirring frequently.) 2 lbs Ground Beef 1/2 Cup Cashews 3-5 Stalks of Celery Chopped (you could use bell pepper) 1 Onion Sliced Juice of 2 oranges 1 Cup Bone Broth 1.5 Cups Pineapple Chunks 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder 2 teaspoons Coconut Aminos 1.5 Tablespoons Arrowroot Powder 1/4 teaspoon Cardamom 1 teaspoon Tumeric 1 teaspoon Ginger...
