Friends’ Favorite Foods: John’s Chicken Liver Pâté

Okay so John actually told me his favorite food was liverwurst, but I’m not really at sausage-making level, so he agreed to settle for a creamy chicken liver mousse and that is definitely something I can deliver on. I’ve written a chicken liver mousse recipe before, based off the magical goodness at Parc in Philadelphia (my […]

Weekly Workout #1

I’ve been doing these little bodyweight circuits for quite a while now and several friends have been following along (some by choice, my sister because I make her), but I thought it might be time to share them with you too! I’m also toying with the idea of maybe starting a weekly newsletter and thinking […]

On A More Serious Note: Chronic Illness Update

This wasn’t meant to go up for a few more weeks, but it’s my birthday today and I realized it was probably time. It’s been… years at this point, since I last did a dedicated post about my personal health battles. It’s never something I’ve been shy about discussing, but we’re way overdue for a […]

Whole30: NSV’s & More

Just a quick one today, as I suppose we should probably talk about this Whole30 thing now that it’s (kind of) over. The NSV or “non scale victories” that Melissa Hartwig and crew suggest you may experience were… seemingly endless, actually. I went through the worksheet and was able to check off items in every […]

Fridge & Pantry Essentials: Whole30

In a previous post I mentioned that The Boyfriend and I (and 11 of our friends and relatives that I annoyed into submission) would be doing a Whole30 challenge this month. This is my second time doing it, and I had great results in terms of health and how I felt after the first one […]

Thai Red Curry Chicken

I don’t know what it is about Thai food, but I crave it constantly. Much to my dismay, rice noodles do not fit anywhere into our slow carb or Whole30 lives, so I’ve had to learn to cook some of the good stuff all on my own. This Thai Red Curry chicken is so easy […]

Crispy Curry Chicken Thighs

I have to admit, I’ve never been a huge fan of chicken thighs – or any dark meat really, but The Boyfriend loves it so I’ve spent…many years trying to find a way to love it. This accidental concoction (in that, I didn’t know just how good it would actually be) has been the answer […]

Slow Carbbq Sauce

It has finally happened! A sugar-free, completely slow carb and paleo barbecue sauce! I’m sure anything remotely authentic will put it to shame, but hey, you can have this one any night of the week. This sauce is super quick to put together and goes great with any protein, but we’ve particularly enjoyed it with […]

Default Wings: DIY

Wings are such a quick, easy, and often very cheap way to make everyone happy. They’re frequently labeled at the butcher counter as “party wings” and are already split up into the flat wing and the drumette, which is perfect for me because The Boyfriend prefers the drums and I want *all* the flats. For […]

Five Minute Meal: Chili Shrimp

I really love shellfish, almost all of them, and especially when they are cooked with Asian and Indonesian flavors like sambal oelek (chili paste), soy sauce, and rice vinegar. Recipes like this pop up a lot when the sun is out and the grill is hot, but in the meantime, it makes a nice dish […]

I’m Baaaaack!

Four years ago, I started this blog to share my food and fitness journey as I navigated chronic pain no one could identify and a correlating weight gain I just couldn’t shake. My goal was to share my recipes and workouts so anyone wanting to follow along could do so. About halfway through grad school, […]

WTF: The Easiest Stir-Fry Ever

Yea yea, I know, I haven’t posted a recipe since April. I don’t really have an excuse – I just haven’t been writing much, though cooking plenty. So let’s just skip all the apologies and whatnot and get down to business. If you saw my post on the SlowCarbSnacktime Facebook the other day, I mentioned […]
