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

Giveaway: Alejandra’s Seasoning Blends

I’d rather have a drawer full of spices than a box full of jewelry. There! I said it. I like spices more than gems. (Although, really, aren’t spices the gems of the food world?) I was recently introduced to Alejandra’s Seasoning Blends: bold flavor combos that are blended by hand in small batches from 100% organic, non-GMO spices. So far, I used the Cocoa-Mom Dark blend on my... read more

Zingy Ginger Dressing

I know this is going to sounds kind of crazy because who picks A SALAD DRESSING MADE OF VEGETABLES as their favorite recipe?! But… this is (one of) my favorite recipe(s) from Well Fed 2. Every time I make it, I’m, like, “Whoa! This is good.” If you don’t have Well Fed 2, consider this a present so you can try my favorite recipe. If you are a proud owner of Well Fed 2,... read more

Pumpkin Spice Blend

I love when readers request recipes, and this one was an easy request to fulfill. I’m surprised you haven’t included a recipe for pumpkin spice. I  consider spice mixes to kind of be your thing! It’s my favorite thing that I’ve learned from you and in this case really necessary — I live in the UK and (shock! horror!) we don’t get pumpkin spice mixes. I don’t even know what’s in them or... read more

Gluten-Free Girl’s Flour

Confession: I’ve got a little bit of Kickstarter burn-out. I love love love the concept, and I’m very interested in supporting people who are passionate about what they do. But each week, I get a metric tonne (it’s so much, it made me go international!) of requests to share Kickstarter info with you. I generally say “no,” but this one? To this one I say “yes” and... read more

Simple Red Cabbage Salad

My dad and I spent the afternoon cooking yesterday. Or, more accurately, running back and forth between the kitchen and the living room, taking advantage of commercial breaks to chop and stir while we watched the New England Patriots defeat the Buffalo Bills. There was a lot of me jumping up, throwing my arms overhead, and yelling, “Gronk is back!” and “Come on, Tommy!” (Yes, I... read more

Paleo Pink Pickled Eggs & Beets

I’ve been joking that I’m becoming a homesteader since we moved to Vermont. That is an (unintentional) insult to homesteaders everywhere. Preserving things during the summer is a Big Deal here, and after multiple exposures, I could no longer resist the massive towers of 1-quart Ball jars at the co-op, the regular grocery store, and K-Mart. I’ve been tinkering a lot and after several... read more

Tuesday 10: Paleo Pumpkin Recipes

I tried to deny it, but I can’t resist. The internet has given me Pumpkin Fever. Everywhere I click, there are orange-colored treats beckoning me to indulge in the warm spiciness. I don’t even drink coffee, but I’m convinced my day would be perfect if I could just sip a pumpkin spice latte. I’m distracted by the idea of adding pumpkin to everything. (No! Not pumpkin. If I’m... read more

Coconut 101

I was working on updating a classic American recipe for my Paleo Magazine column this weekend and realized I had no idea how to properly prepare a fresh coconut. After a little research and some tinkering in my test kitchen, this what I came up with. If you’ve never eaten fresh coconut, you really owe it to yourself to give a go! Preheat oven to 400F. Place the coconut on a kitchen towel for... read more

Guest Post: The Beauty of Sleep

A few years ago, I decided to make sleep as important to me as the food I ate, and I tackled my sleep project with the same intensity as my workouts. Now, according to my Fitbit, I get about 7 hours and 50 minute of sleep almost every night — and I’m not ashamed to say that I looooooove my very firm mattress and side-sleeper pillow. Here’s a guest post from Kayla, the blogger behind Cookie... read more
