Our First Snow!

When we woke up this morning and looked out the window, we saw this: Smudge had this reaction. (If I’m being honest, that’s pretty much her reaction to everything.): Dave and I suited up in our cold weather gear and boots. We were like: And: Then I shoveled the driveway, and I was like: Now it’s raining, and I’m... read more

My Favorite Paleo Thanksgiving Recipes

Although Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, I don’t have a hard and fast menu for what I think makes the perfect celebration. I mean, there was the year we ate Elvis sandwiches, and the year we just got take-out from a local restaurant, and the year we marked the occasion by having my thyroid removed. This year, I’ll be in Prague! Here are some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes, pulled... read more

Well Fed Signing in Prague (!)

I’ve been having a love affair with the city of Prague for decades, and I’ve visited three times since 2010. (You can read about all my Prague adventures, in reverse chronological order, right here.) It was an indescribable thrill when we were contacted by Jan Melvil Publishing to have our book translated and published in Czech. They’ve already published It Starts With Food in the Czech... read more

It’s officially the last call for my November Quarterly box! There are less than 50 boxes left and Wednesday is the deadline to subscribe. Don’t miss out on this one!

The healthy lifestyle site Well+Good has a sweet little Q&A with me today, plus a peek inside my fridge. You can read it here!

Best Paleo Recipes of 2014

One of the things that pretty nice about the world of paleo cooks is that we all know and support each other, so even though I work at home with only Smudge for company, I feel like I have colleagues I can rely on for support and fun conversation… It’s just that our “office” is spread out all over the world. Bill and Hayley of Primal Palate organized a bunch of us paleo cooks —... read more

Oven-Fried Salmon Cakes

I’ve been a naughty girl. I know that to manage my blood pressure I need to meditate every day, drink hibiscus tea, eat cold-water fish and potassium-rich foods, and pay attention to my stress level. I know these things! But over the last few months, I’ve been feeling so good, I thought I could get away with skimping on those good habits. You can probably guess what happened: My blood pressure... read more

Giveaway: Organic Whole Turkey

UPDATE November 9, 2014: We have a winner! If you’ve been reading my blog for at least a year, then you probably already know this about me: Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. You might assume it’s because I love to eat. And you’re right: I do love to eat. But I don’t need a holiday as an excuse! I’m a pro-leve eater every day of the year. Thanksgiving is my favorite... read more

Jerk Seasoning

Next week is a Big Work Week around our house. Dave has deadlines every week for school, but my schedule is usually really flexible, so I can keep us stocked up with good food, clean laundry, and tea breaks. I have a deadline next week, too! It’s “batten down the hatches” time — which translates into a big cookup on Monday so we’re prepared for the week. The Jerk Seasoning from... read more

Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!

Um… remember in August when Dave and I went to a Patriots pre-season game? Dave bought me those tickets as a lovely and much-appreciated consolation prize. My first choice had been to see the New England Patriots and Tom Brady take on the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning. They’re my two favorite teams, and I’m nerdily (what?! nerd + mightily) inspired by the tenacity, grace, and skill... read more

I’m Adventure Girl: A Story In Photos

Dave and I wrapped ourselves in (cheap) satin capes, dubbed ourselves Big Man and Adventure Girl (!), and went for an epic walk in the woods this weekend, part of the Chad Hero race series. The annual event is a fundraiser for the Children’s Hospital of Dartmouth, and most of the participants in the Half Marathon, 5k Run, 1-mile Fun Run, 5k Walk, and 10k Wooded Hike dress up in superhero costumes to... read more
