Healthy Homemade Popcorn

Let’s clear the air real quick: corn is a grain, not a vegetable, which means it’s not paleo. I am aware of this, but with so many food restrictions for health reasons, I’m gonna take what I can get. Corn does not seem to have any negative impact on me so, when not on Whole30, […]

Homemade Whole30 Mayo

Russians consume more mayonnaise than any other population in the world, so I guess it’s not that much of a surprise that it is probably my favorite condiment of all time. Unfortunately, the store-bought mayonnaise options are pretty lacking in quality, taste, price or any combination of the three. You can go the super processed […]

Heritage: Salted Caramel Halva Bites (Paleo)

I didn’t get too much of a reaction from my dad when I first told him about my Heritage: Upgraded series that I was going to start writing. My parents mean well, but I talk about food basically non-stop and I think sometimes they just smile and nod so I shut up. Turns out, dad […]

Paleo Peanut Butter Pupsicles

Summer is upon us, or at least… it’s coming kind of soon, and the sun is seriously strong here in Oregon. We’ve got fans in every room and two AC’s, but sometimes my four-legged child wants a special treat just like us humans do! What’s a dog mom to do? Make pupsicles of course! They’re […]

Master Class: Whole30 Pickled Onions

I recently decided it was time to add some more tricks to my kitchen tool belt. I am always researching, reading, and learning something new, but I wanted to share some of that with you guys as I go “back to basics” and learn how to do a few things I’ve never done before. Starting […]

Mom’s Favorite: Top Secret Deviled Eggs

I think my OG deviled eggs recipe went up on SlowCarbSnacktime in early 2013. At the time, I was mostly writing the blog as an exploratory “I’m learning to cook and you can follow along” kind of thing. My skills and my confidence have improved since then, but my deviled eggs are still one of […]

2Towns Cider: Ginja’d Onion Jam

I recently had the pleasure of taking a very long drive down to Corvallis to meet some of the lineup at 2 Towns Cider. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you may already know it is pretty much my favorite cidery around. I genuinely enjoy their product, and the love grew even more when I […]

Meal Prep: Big Batch Veggies

This is quite a simple and straightforward recipe, if you can even call it that, but it’s a weekly meal prep essential for me! I wanted to get this one up, but moving forward, all of my meal prep recipes will go up on Mondays. I like to use frozen vegetables for most of this, […]

Friends’ Favorite Foods: Courtney’s Buffalo Chicken Dip

Next in line for my Friends’ Favorite Foods is my New York queen, Courtney. She might love buffalo chicken even more than I do, which I didn’t think was possible, but here we are. I spent a lot of time researching for this one, there are many different ways to make buffalo chicken keto/paleo/Whole30, but […]

What’s in My Travel Bag: Snacks & Self-Care

The “what’s in my bag” trend of posts/videos primarily gained traction in the beauty community, but I think it’s still relevant here – especially when it comes to travel. A lot of food plans tend to go out the window when on the road, but there are a few rules I try to stick to, […]

Badass Banana Cakes

Oh how I crave these. Nick (in these parts, formerly known as The Boyfriend) is definitely the baker in our house and this is absolutely my favorite of his creations. While these cakes may not be Whole30 in philosophy, the ingredients are compliant and with no added sugar, I feel pretty okay with the occasional […]

Five Minute Friday: Weekday Cocktails

I recently took a poll on Instagram and Facebook about what you guys miss most when eating Whole30/Paleo and you overwhelmingly responded with alcohol and dessert! There’s no chocolate here today, but hopefully this one’ll satisfy the boozehounds. I do occasionally indulge in some wine or cider, but for the other 90%, here are some […]
