Oh my word, these are the best paleo tortillas! I’ve been on the hunt for a great paleo tortilla recipe and this, my friends, is it.
The Grain-Free Taco Dilemma
We eat this Seasoned Taco Meat frequently. It’s easy, tasty, and I can hide a bajillion veggies in there. Shhh, don’t tell my boys!
Before these awesome paleo plantain tortillas came along, we Read More
This Paleo Almond Butter Bread is amazing. With only 5 ingredients, it’s super easy to whip up a loaf. And it’s so filling that a little goes a long way.
We’ve eaten it for breakfast (toasted and topped with almond butter and sliced fruit) and for lunch (toasted and piled high with sandwich fillings). It also makes a great late-night snack, which I may or may not know from personal experience.Read More
All spring long, I needed a good way to use up lots of lettuce. We’re talking buckets and buckets full.
It was growing like crazy in our garden! It was way too much lettuce to eat, even if we’d had salad for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I hated to waste it, but you can imagine how salad three times a day would go over with the youngest people at my house.
So I searched the internet for great ways to use up lots of lettuce. I found ideas like “lettuce soup”. It tasted just like you’d imagine. Mr. Native Texan said lettuce soup reminded him of an appetizer at a fancy restaurant.
If you’re a true foodie, you may love it. My family did not.
There were a few other good ideas for salads and stir fries and tossing lettuce into smoothies. We fed lots of lettuce to the chickens and even gave bags away to family, friends and neighbors.

Why buy almond milk when it’s so easy to make at home? Homemade almond milk is better for you, too. Did you know that most store bought nut milks contain unhealthy ingredients (like synthetic vitamins, oils and sugar)?
When you make almond milk yourself, the only ingredients are almonds, water and salt. Optionally, you can add vanilla and your sweetener of choice. It’s that simple!
I love coffee–the smell, the taste, the caffeine–but recently began drinking dandelion root coffee instead of the real deal. I’m loving it! It’s easy, tasty and good for you. Plus, it avoids the negative health impact health I experienced with regular coffee.Read More
Want to know a secret?
I don’t floss my teeth.
A friend once shared that every time he goes to the dentist, they tell him he should floss his teeth every day. His response? “Okay.”
Every time they tell him, and every time he does nothing about it.
I feel the same way! I know I should floss my teeth, but it’s just one of those things I’ve never worked into my routine. As a busy mom of three, it often feels like a good day if my teeth get brushed at all, let alone flossed.
I do know that good oral health is super important for overall health. And, especially in light of my root canal dilemma, I’ve been looking for an easy way to support my teeth and gums.
This mouthwash with essential oils is just the ticket! Here’s why I love it:Read More
I just had to do it.
We picked strawberries at a local farm last week and came home with three buckets of berries. That’s when I decided it was time to whip up a gluten free strawberry pie with natural sweeteners and grass fed gelatin.
In honor of the berry season which is now upon us, I’d like to share 25 delectable real food strawberry recipes. Each recipe listed below is gluten and dairy-free, except for the goat cheese in #11. Most of the recipes are Paleo.
Nothing beats eating freshly picked strawberries whole, but if you’re looking for new ways to put those fresh strawberries to use, give one of these real food strawberry recipes a try. Then let us know how it turned out! Read More
It may be spring in most of the continental U.S., but it’s still a chilly 55 degrees here in northern Virginia. In the middle of May. Not to worry! I’m pretending it feels like spring with my Spring Capsule Wardrobe…Read More
