Cozy Fall mornings call for jammies, a big mug of bullet proof coffee and this hash!   This hash is so versatile. Add eggs, swap out the sausage for bacon… It all cooks up perfectly in this Lodge Cast Iron Skillet.   Left this way, it’s perfect for my autoimmune protocol #aip friends out there. ❤   Substitute butternut squash for the yam and it’s 21 Day Sugar Detox approved for ALL levels *if you use an approved sugar free sausage*….

If not – join here! Next up, once you make this meatloaf, I promise… Read more »

A little beet & green juice pick me up! Such a beautiful Fall color! ???? 2 organic Cucumbers + 5 or 6 large organic celery stalks both for the base + 2 large red beets + handful organic cilantro + 2 handfuls of organic spinach all in my Hurom. This made about 3 cups this size… (approximately 12 ounces each ?). Lemon ? would be a nice addition. This is pretty sweet with no fruit (hello beets!!!), but a green apple?would be a nice touch as… Read more »

Okay guys, I have promised to share this Summery Tarragon Chicken Salad recipe a gagillion times and now I am!!! Summer is here, so perfect timing – right? You see, I often make recipes without really measuring. I know, I am sorry. Every time I would go to make this, I would throw it together, take photos and be like, “Dang it! I forgot to measure again!” Well, not this time. I measured for you. You’re welcome. No, really. Every… Read more »

HOLY MOLY GUACAMOLE! I mean, that face! I don’t know about you, but guacamole is one of my favorite things, EVER! I am pretty sure that was carried on down to my boys as well. In this picture, my littlest dude was caught with his face in a bowl of this nutrient dense goodness. Cheeks for days! EAT UP! Avocados are a nutrient dense food, meaning they are power packed with tons of nutrients. This creamy fruit is a good source… Read more »

I am nearing the end of my journey on The 21 Day Sugar Detox and just had to share a short post with you all. I feel SO good, I can barely stand it. What’s more is I have been astonished by some of the things I have experienced. A few highlights: The ‘fog’ has lifted I have much more energy My joint pain is almost completely non-existent I am sleeping soundly (Who doesn’t need that? Especially if you kids!) I am… Read more »

If you are like me, I bet you are feeling like it’s time to clean up your eating so I pulled this Salad and Balsamic Dressing Recipe together to help you ring in 2015 with clean eating. I think it is great to have balance, especially around the holidays. Too much restriction in your nutrition plan is no way to live. I hope you enjoyed some favorite treats, and that you even dabbled in creating them with unrefined sugars, flours… Read more »

Is self-care the first thing to go as the holidays approach? For many, the answer is yes. The holiday hustle begins, our lists grow, and we lose sight of our needs in an effort to create the perfect holiday. The result? We get worn down, making it hard to enjoy this joyous time of year. I get it. As my oldest son’s birthday comes and goes each year, the intensity of life’s pace grows exponentially. His birthday is in mid-November and after… Read more »

I am so honored to have been given the opportunity to review Carrie Vitt’s new book, The Grain-Free Family Table! Honored and grateful. Carrie’s story of healing her autoimmune disease through food inspired me to take action to heal my own. You see, her story penetrated so deep as she and I have (or in Carrie’s case had) Hashimotos thyroiditis. During the last few days in October, I reached out to the same nutritional therapy practitioners Carrie worked with to heal. And since November… Read more »
