In 2012, I confessed that I have a weakness for NFL football playoffs and awards shows. This year, for the first time ever in my life, I truly became a football fan. I read magazines and websites, I developed opinions on coaches and teams, I watched football every Sunday, and I was so very disappointed when my beloved New England Patriots lost the AFC Championship to the Denver Broncos — who, I must...

Tacos versus nachos. It’s a timeless rivalry with no clear winner. I think we can all agree that a basket of crispy things, ready to be smothered in tender, spicy meat and fresh toppings can perk up the most mundane Monday or woeful Wednesday… or Super Bowl Sunday! So why choose?
This recipe combines the best of tacos and nachos — crispy, salty, spicy, sloppy — while ditching the soy, sugar,...

I had the distinct pleasure of being interviewed by Joanna DeVoe, aka the Kickass Witch, yesterday. We talked about our favorite Well Fed and Well Fed 2 recipes, the magic of spices, the singular delights of elimination diets… and Smudge made a guest appearance.
You can learn more about Joanna, watch more of her videos, and read her blog on her web site. I think she’s sweet as Sunbutter, and I...

I went through a pretty serious Larabar phase back in 2009 when I first made the switch to dino-chow. I was weaning myself off my beloved Zone-friendly Balance bars (which are filled with crappy, unpronounceable ingredients) and was delighted with the minimal ingredients listed on the Larabar wrapper. But Larabars rarely make it into my mouth these days — they’re just too sweet! And with 23 grams...

I call bullsh*t on anyone who says, “Spaghetti squash tastes just like spaghetti.”
No, it doesn’t.
Is it delicious? Sure.
Do I love to eat it? You bet.
But it does not. taste. like. pasta.
It does, however, meet oyther delicious criteria:
It’s easy to cook
It’s paleo and Whole30 approved
It’s packed with good-for-you stuff like fiber, Vitamin C, Niacin, B6, and Pantothenic...

Dave and I are off to Disneyworld for a week of frolicking at the Magic Kingdom, Epcot Center, and the Animal Kindgom park. Yes, we will be riding the Monorail! And we’re kicking it all off at the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show. (I used to go with my parents every year in the ’70s, so it’s going to be a major time travel trip… yay!)
All of which is a long way to say: I won’t be...

Maybe you’re just ready to clean up your eating habits and eat some tasty food without grains, dairy, legumes, sugar, and other stuff that makes you feel less an awesome.
