Essential Oils & A Recipe

Hi everyone!! I’m as happy as ever! That’s because I’ve got my essential oils. Yay!! I love creating food recipes, but I equally love creating recipes with essential oils. Today I’m focusing on essential oils. I feel like the Paleo lifestyle includes natural alternatives, and essential oils just make sense to me.  Essential oils are…

Raw Coconut Lime Squares

Ahhh…lime and coconut are so good together. It’s just one of those undeniable combinations that I can’t resist! Put the lime in the coconut…hehe it makes me so happy.  Now it’s not a coincidence that today I’m posting my raw coconut lime squares. It’s St. Patty’s Day! So I thought I’d get in on the…

AIP Coconutty NoatmealĀ 

Lately I dabbled in the AIP Paleo diet, after learning that most cases of hypothyroidism are probably Hashimoto’s (an autoimmune condition of the thyroid). That, and I’ve just had a nagging gut feeling that there’s a food I’m missing on my road to recovery.  If you’re wondering what AIP Paleo is, well it’s a Paleo…

Paleo Vanilla Coffee Creamer

Mmm there’s nothing better than coffee in the morning. But what happens to your daily cup of joe when you go Paleo? Well, if you ask me, it gets yummier!  As much as I like dairy cream in my coffee, I’ve realized that canned coconut milk or coconut cream is AMAZING in coffee! It’s the…

Vanilla Latte: 2 Ways

I’ve been very much into delicious drinks lately. A little while ago my husband and I realized we were going to Starbucks a bit too much. Those drinks add up fast!

Decadent Paleo Hot Chocolate

This winter I have seriously got into hot chocolate. Went for a walk? Hot chocolate. Going on a road trip? Hot chocolate. Rough day? Hot chocolate. Lol! But really, most nights of the week I find myself with a hot chocolate in my hand, as my daily treat. There’s something so cozy and comforting about…

What I Ate Today

Part of my plan for getting back to eating healthy, is to journal what I eat. I find taking a picture is the fastest way. So I thought I’d share what my day of eating looks like. I don’t count calories because I believe that nutritionally dense foods interact differently in the body than just…

Noatmeal or Paleo “Oatmeal”

One of the things about the Paleo diet is oats are not allowed. It’s sad. But the truth is oats can reek havoc on the digestive system and it’s high in phytic acid. When I switched to Paleo, I truly mourned the loss of my beloved oatmeal. My breakfasts turned to eggs and I never…
