Saint Lucifer Spice: I Put THIS Sh*t on Everything

So eating paleo is not without its challenges – you’re constantly making trips to the grocery store for fresh items (those fruits, veggies and meats don’t last nearly as long as the boxed, preserved crap, do they?), you’re cooking and doing dishes all the time, and you’re ALWAYS searching for new ways to spice up the staples, am I right? …

Bought Myself a Bouquet of Flours

No, it wasn’t a typo! I rarely have flowers in the house unless my boyfriend is in trouble. I’m actually babysitting my friend’s flowers while she is out of town and anxiously hoping I don’t kill them. I have a spotty history keeping green things alive. I don’t think she knew that … Back to the flours. Don’t worry, I’m …

Everyday Paleo Around the World: Italian Cuisine

Saturdays are usually my Get-Your-Life-In-Order day. I generally reserve it for catching up from the hectic week that preceded it: clean the apartment, get the laundry done, sort and pay bills, run errands, wash and gas the car, organize my purse, make my to-do & shopping lists for the week … and on and on it goes.

The Devil Inside: Portion Control

So one of my cats is a bit, err, well, he’s fat. Just a little! Sorry, Maceo, but we’re talking about weight and health here. I have always lovingly called him “big-boned,” but we know that’s not true for him … OR me. Why am I bringing up my cat? I’ll tell you. Last few visits to the vet prompted …

Smart Shopping: Whole30 @ Costco!

I’m using my horoscope as an excuse to keep my butt on the couch this evening rather than going to Zumba. Yes, I read my horoscope daily, sue me. I’m a Cancer if you’re curious. If you weren’t – sorry. What has been seen cannot be unseen. Now is where we enter the Judgement Free Zone (JFZ). If we’re going …

Measuring Can Be Fun

… With the Right Tools! One of the things I hate most about eating paleo, but especially¬†Whole30, is that you’re constantly cooking. I enjoy cooking. I do. I’ll even venture to say I’ve gotten pretty good at it over the last few years. I think we will all agree, however, that there are certainly times where ordering in sounds so …
