Real Life Paleo Review

Story time! A couple of weeks ago, I trekked down to Greenwich Village to see Stacy & Matt (the Paleo Parents) and Sarah Ballantyne (The Paleo Mom) speak about their books and do a cooking demo. That was already my idea of a fabulous Saturday afternoon—get out of the bubble, eat some yummy food, and…

Cranberry Thyme Turkey Meatloaf

Behind Christmas, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Because food. I wish it were socially acceptable to eat Thanksgiving food year round.

Pork & Plantain Baked Frittata

How is it already almost October?? Riddle me that. June feels like yesterday. Not complainin’ though, I’m welcoming sweater weather with open arms.

Essentially, it’s this magic food that will help your body function optimally, potentially prevent birth defects, and aid in healing chronic diseases. Who wouldn’t want to eat a food that does all those things?!

What CrossFit has given me (besides muscles!)

So this post is quite the digression from my normal sort of blog post, but it’s something that I have really felt the need to get down on “paper” and put out there for any other girls/women who have had similar experiences to me.. Since I put down the baby weights and picked up a…
