Sheet Pan Chicken and Spring Vegetables

Sheet Pan Chicken and Spring Vegetables

I feel like an alternate name for this recipe could be “Throw a bunch of stuff on the pan and then throw it in the oven” but that just doesn’t sound as nice as “Sheet Pan Chicken and Spring Vegetables”.  This dish was a breeze to whip up and tasted so good.  I love that I didn’t have to stand over the stove while everything cooked and bonus that these ingredients were simple enough to pick up at my local…

Oven Baked Ribs

Oven Baked Ribs

We recently made these ribs for a family cookout for the Fourth of July.  They were a huge hit with everyone and fell off the bone ridiculously easy.  These can be made with any BBQ seasoning and sauce you’d like but I’ll share what I used to keep them squeaky clean paleo below. These ribs are so incredibly easy to make and require no special equipment.  If you have an oven and some aluminum foil, you can make these at…

Natural Beauty Cabinet

Natural Beauty Cabinet

After switching to a Paleo lifestyle, I made the decision to switch my beauty routine to a natural one as well. It took me a few months as I didn’t want to just throw out everything that wasn’t natural and waste all that money. It can also get expensive trying to restock your beauty cabinet from scratch, so for me, slow and steady worked best and was the most practical. This is my medicine cabinet (that I use as a…

Grilled Garlic Teriyaki Wings

Grilled Garlic Teriyaki Wings

During the summer months, my husband and I love to grill.  We typically grill burgers every Sunday night (stay tuned for weekly burger posts) but wanted to have something quick and tasty on the weeknight, too.  Enter: garlic teriyaki chicken wings. I really love when experiments turn out how they’re supposed to.  The first time I made these, I was just playing around with ingredients and was curious as to how these would taste made with coconut aminos instead of…

Porky Breakfast Hash

Porky Breakfast Hash

While I typically eat eggs for breakfast (cheap, easy protein), I occasionally run out of eggs. Well, what’s a girl to do for breakfast with no eggs?  Make a random hash with stuff I have in my fridge, of course!  I have eaten this for breakfast for the last few days but it would also be great as a side dish.  This would also taste great with an egg over it, too! Ingredients 2 cups diced Yukon gold potatoes 1…

Eating Paleo While Traveling

Eating Paleo While Traveling

I recently took a trip to Miami for a friend’s wedding. It was such a great trip and it was so nice to see friends, but eating Paleo outside of the comfort of my home was semi-difficult. For me, eating Paleo while traveling came with some challenges, but was still manageable. I’ll share how I stayed mainly Paleo, while still enjoying my time with friends. First off, I prepped a bit before I left. I packed a bunch of snacks…

Sweet Potato Hash

Sweet Potato Hash

This dish is seriously good and I love how versatile it is! I eat it for breakfast with a fried egg on top, for lunch or a snack by itself, and I eat it as a side dish with a steak for dinner. It’s really easy and can be made in big batches in advance. On meal prep day, I’ll make a big batch and use it for breakfast throughout the week. It doesn’t take a lot of time to…

Pit Stank Stick Stop – A lengthy journey with natural deodorant

Pit Stank Stick Stop – A lengthy journey with natural deodorant

It wasn’t long after I started eating Paleo that I started to think about what I was putting on my skin. I was reading a lot of information and natural skincare and how important it could be to overall health. I purchased the Purely Primal Skincare Guide and began to soak in as much information as I could. I thought starting with natural deodorant would be the easiest transition for me, since I really didn’t even use deodorant every day…
