I’m Bringing Pizza Back!

I’m bringing pizza back Them other crusts don’t know how to act I think you’re special cause of what you lack You can do it too if you’ve got the knack Sometimes you just NEED pizza.  It’s delicious, comforting, and familiar.  It’s one of those foods that even when it’s bad, it’s still good. Recently I stumbled across Julian Bakery’s …

Rome wasn’t built in a day…

I hate running.  It has NOT all been peaches and coconut cream.  Hate is normally a strong word, but in this case it may not be strong enough.  Maybe it’s because I don’t fit the traditional definition of a “runner.”  Maybe it’s because I hate being hot and sweaty.  I’ll have you know I have very real fears about being trapped in …

Step, Slide & Stomp Out of Your Comfort Zone – I Did

If you’ve read any of my posts or talked to me in the last 8 months, you probably know about my recent love affair with Zumba. I’ve become a total junkie, trying new instructors and gyms. I’ve become a total groupie, buying branded clothes and shoes. I’m dancing around the kitchen while I’m doing dishes and have a Zumba step …

Bonding over Bananas

While making my morning Monkey Salad (my favorite Whole30 breakfast of all time) in the kitchen at work a while back, a co-worker struck up conversation. Her eyes lit up at the banana/cashew/coconut combo, and I was more than happy to tell her a bit about what I was eating and why I was eating it. Then she dropped the …

*zzz* … five more minutes!

We’ll be ready soon, I swear. This whole coding and editing CSS thing isn’t coming as naturally as it used to – so sorry if the look isn’t what you were expecting after such a long hiatus. I figure, why deny you the privilege of new content just because I can’t get my aesthetic act together? I was honestly shocked …

Committing to a Paleo lifestyle isn’t just about the food. It’s the whole picture including your physical health. For most of us that means going to the gym. I don’t like going. I don’t feel the endorphin “high” from exercising. I don’t glisten when I work out. I’m not graceful or well-coordinated. For those of you who do like going, …

Stop wishing. Start doing.

I can do this. I can do this. I can do this. It’s no secret that I follow Whole30/Paleo because there are a few pounds on me that I rather never see again.  They interfere with wearing my favorite clothes.  They lower my self-esteem and make me feel bad about myself when I shouldn’t.  And worst of all, they make everyday …

Well Fed 1 & 2

How much do I love Mel Joulwan?  Let me count the ways. I grew up helping my Mother and Grandmother create these delicious dishes in the kitchen and I was instantly hooked on cooking.  They may have used recipes passed down from generation to generation, but it was all in their heads.  Measuring cups and spoons?  As if.  Everything was …

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? …
