Beef Stew

Sometimes you just have to get back to basics.  I have gotten off of the Paleo Wagon a little and I have seen a few pounds creeping up.  The secret is to nip the weight gain in the bud.  I have sworn off sweets and I am concentrating on “basic” foods.  Basic doesn’t have to […]

Peach Paleo Ice Cream

That is quite a mouthful–Peach Paleo Ice Cream!  Peaches are plentiful right now.  What better way to use them than to make healthy ice cream?  Nothing says summer like ice cream!  Well, here is for one more hurrah for summer.

Eggplant Parmesan

I love this time of the year when you can stop at roadside stands and buy fresh produce from the local farmers.  I  recently bought 2 eggplants.  My intention was to grill them, but I forgot about them.  I decided it was time to use them so I made up a quick version of eggplant […]

Beautiful Mexico

There were so many sights, smells and sounds it was overwhelming. I met a local artist. His paintings were amazing. Don’t you agree? Today […]

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

This is a great way to use cauliflower. I have stayed away from cauliflower because it can be very expensive. I found large heads of cauliflower for $1.50 a head at a local farm market. You will be able to make 2 large pizza crusts from 1 head of cauliflower. It is easier to work […]
