It’s Gonna Be May

This post is basically just an excuse to share this image because it makes me giggle. (Reference.) May 1 is my birthday! Last year, we celebrated by taking off to Prague and the Balkans, throwing in our lot with some witches, and getting new tattoos. This year, instead of taking a holiday overseas, we’re packing up our lives and moving to White River Junction, Vermont! Our heads are fully immersed... read more

Tricolore Salad

Spring and summer are potluck season, and a big, brightly-colored salad is like a big bowl of love. Plus, it’s a sneaky, delicious way to get everyone to eat more vegetables. This quick salad showcases the colors of the Italian flag: green basil, white zucchini, and red tomatoes — and it tastes like leisurely, sunny days. Serve it as a topping for grilled chicken or fish, or as part of an antipasto... read more

My New Spoon Treat

I think you guys know about my deep affection for Sunbutter. It’s a true, pure love. But at the PaleoFX conference, the good people of Barefoot Provisions introduced me to a new hearthrob: Organic Cinnamon Red Maca Almond Butter from a pretty sweet company called Jem Raw Organics in Bend, Oregon. It tastes like graham crackers. EXACTLY like graham crackers. Only it’s in a smooth, creamy,... read more

PaleoFX: A (Short) Story In Photos

My PaleoFX experience started with a group book signing and ended with falling in love with a new paleo treat. Here’s some of the photographic evidence of my exploits. Once upon a time… Thursday, April 10 — 7:00 p.m. | Book signing at Barnes & Noble with Michelle of Nom Nom Paleo, Diana of Sustainable Dish, and Arsy of Rubies & Radishes. We took questions from the audience and... read more

Primal Life Kit

** This sale is now over. Look for another great bundle next spring! ** It’s spring… yay! And that means it’s a wonderful time to start thinking about fresh starts, getting outside, and emerging from winter hibernation… which means it’s also the perfect time for the annual (kickass) ebook sale put together by Neely Quinn, founder of the Paleo Plan web site. This year, Neely... read more

Visiting Vermont

We’re exploring our future home in the Upper River Valley of Vermont this week, so please forgive me if I’m slow to respond to blog comments. We’re looking for a place to live, trying out the local gym and maybe a CrossFit box, buying groceries in the co-ops, and just generally trying to get a sense of what our new lives might be like. It’s frexciting! This is Main Street in White... read more

Tropical Tacos With Jicama Slaw

I can hold two conflicting thoughts with equal conviction, and I have no problem with that whatsoever. For example: I generally like people who are educated and well-groomed, but I have a soft spot for Kid Rock (Sorry!). I like to dress in black, but can’t resist the colors pink and orange together. (like this) I like bananas — but not banana-flavored things — and the texture of pudding makes me... read more

Mediterranean Chicken Salad

I’m recovering from the “visit with all of my favorite paleo people mania” of PaleoFX this weekend by cooking and typing while still wearing my pajamas (camo flannel bottoms and a black t-shirt, in case you’re curious). I keep meaning to get dressed and maybe even workout, but it’s 4:00 p.m. and it still hasn’t happened and Jeopardy! is on in 30 minutes, so… I knew... read more

Come out and play with us! The Authors Diana Rodgers will be signing her book Paleo Lunches and Breakfasts On the Go. Learn more about Diana at her site Sustainable... read more

Paleo Bibimbap

In each issue of Paleo Magazine, you’ll find my column in which I tell the story of a traditional international recipe and share a paleo-friendly version so you can make it at home. Here’s my take on the Korean classic bibimbap. Enjoy! Every culture has it’s own version of a culinary hug in a bowl – a comforting pile of food that showcases local ingredients and is designed to feed the... read more

Slow Cooker “Osso Buco” Stew

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a huge fan of slow cooker stews because I think they get too watery — but sometimes, like now, when we’re packing and traveling and generally FREAKING OUT IN A GOOD WAY about moving to Vermont, it’s nice to just toss some quality ingredients in the slow cooker and let it do its thing. I’m happy to report that a short simmer, uncovered in a... read more
