Sweet Potato & Salsify Mash {Paleo, AIP, Whole30}


I love potatoes... but potatoes hate me. They make my stomach feel like it's being wrung out by a couple very strong hands, and then they make my intestines feel like they're being run through the wringer. It's absolutely horrible.

So, I eat sweet potatoes.

Strong Woman Problems: Finding Pants That Fit


Today's post is going to be short, sweet, and to the point. I'm here, bombarding you with photos of my love handles, for two reasons:

  • To show you that pants sizes don't mean jack, so stop stressing over the size on the tag.
  • To show you what brands of jeans do or do not have that ever dreaded "back gap".

The Performance Paleo Cookbook {paleo cookbook review}


I was first drawn to this cookbook by its promise of fueling my body correctly fr my sport, but I soon realized it wasn't just a sports cookbook - it was a dang good cookbook! Seriously, every recipe I tried was amazingly delicious - and super simple to throw together. Plus, there are full color photos on nearly every page - and I love me a photo-filled cookbook!

This cookbook isn't organized like most cookbooks, by breakfast, lunch, and dinner, rather, it's organized by need. Here are the main chapters:

Coconut Chai {AIP, Paleo}

Paleo Chai Mix

Awhile back, I bought a pre-made chai spice mix. It was delicious - and clean - but rather expensive for the small amount (considering a large part of the mix was just sugar!). I really liked the flavor though and decided to try and recreate it based on the ingredients list found on the side of the container.

The Hubster Cooks {Turmeric Chicken Wok - Paleo, Whole30, AIP-Possible}

Paleo Turmeric Chicken Wok

Well, it's been awhile since the last The Hubster Cooks post. Life had the both of us running around like chickens with their heads cut off, and, sadly, we both paid the price for not taking the time to slow down a bit. I wrote about my experience here, and he's laying on the couch wallowing with his own experience as I type.

But, he decided he wanted to cook today, even if he was sick. I, nice wife that I am, went shopping for the ingredients he asked for, brought them home, and then I left him to it.

Health: It's more than just food.

I posted a shorter version of this to my Instagram feed, but thought I'd share it here for easy reference and reminder...


I called in sick the other day.

Last Wednesday, a colleague asked me if I was feeling alright because I looked like crap (I have rather blunt colleagues). I should have taken her concern to heart and asked myself if I really was alright, but I laughed it off and told her I was just fine.

But actually, I wasn't.
