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 […]

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 […]

Five Minute Friday: Classic Baked Garlic

I tend to make baked garlic a lot more often in the colder months, but I’ve been craving it lately and thought it would make a perfect little Five Minute Friday since that is quite literally all you need to make it happen. Admittedly, the garlic does cook for a while, but the prep is […]

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 […]

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 […]

Weekly Workout #4

I have a horrible cold right now, but thankfully I put together this week of workouts while away last week. Visiting my grandparents meant I definitely didn’t have any kettlebell access so this one is 100% equipment-free and a great opportunity to get ready for a new lifting program. You’ll just need yourself, a door […]

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 […]

Favorite Workout Gear

I don’t typically write about fashion or style, that isn’t exactly an area I excel in, but I do love me some workout gear. I’m about a week out from starting up a new lifting program and thought now was a good time to share some of my essential items for lifting, running, and all […]

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 […]

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 […]

What I Eat in a Week: Intermittent Fasting

It’s been a while since I’ve shared What I Eat in a Week and since I haven’t talked much about intermittent fasting on the blog, I thought I could just show you instead. Intermittent fasting is probably most commonly associated with the ketogenic diet, but the concept is the same regardless of how you eat. […]
