It’s pretty obvious which team we’ll be cheering for in our living room on Super Bowl Sunday.
I will be wearing all the Patriots gear, eating paleo snacks, and yelling myself hoarse. For those of you not fortunate enough to join me on my Football Couch — that’s what I’ve been calling our new sofa since we got it in July — my football narration usually goes like...

This recipe begins with the simplicity of Chinese Five-Spice Pork Ribs and is transformed into a nourishing bowl of broth spiked with plenty of ginger, oh-so-green bok choy, and morsels of spiced-just- right pork. Thanks to Zucchini Noodles, you can twirl, splash, and slurp to your heart’s content.
If you don’t have the patience to wait for the Five-Spice Pork Ribs to cook overnight in the slow...

We’re coming into grapefruit season — YAY! — and I personally love love love red grapefruit. When the Wonderful™ company asked if I wanted to offer y’all some of their new Sweet Scarletts Texas Red Grapefruit, I said, “Yeeha!” (Actually, I said, “yes” but play along.)
Half a grapefruit gives you 100% of the daily value of vitamin C, and they’re so...

Doing a workout probably doesn’t seem like headline-worthy news to most people, but for me, it’s a big deal.
Maybe even a Big Deal.
It’s been about three years of digging out of the hole dug by adrenal fatigue and thyroid woes, but I’m feeling pretty good these days. Good enough that in addition to my M/W/F weight sessions at the gym, I’ve added a class on Tuesdays...

I’m looking out my window at the grimy slush in the driveway, the gray mist hovering over the hills across the way, the thermometer that reads 34F, and the barren trees — and I’m grateful for the smart wool socks on my feet and the bright pink grapefruit in my fridge. Need a dose of instant sunshine? Try this citrus salad (or this one) and enjoy a wallop of Vitamin C along with the bold...

It’s official: I’m presenting at PaleoF(x) in Austin during the weekend of April 24-26 — and I couldn’t be more excited because it’s a joint production with Stephanie Gaudreau, the brains and beauty behind Stupid Easy Paleo and The Performance Paleo Cookbook.
We’re teaming up on a session called 20 Ways To Make Paleo Easier and More Fun. Our plan is to take an approach...

It’s a lazy Sunday around here. I just ate some salmon cakes, drank a cup of tea, and completed both the crossword and the Jumble in our local newspaper. Now my biggest to-do item is deciding if I’m going to read on the couch or crawl back under the blanket on my bed. Before I do either, I wanted to share some things that are making me happy and got me thinking today. In no particular...

A few thoughts on soup…
1. I’m still on my soup-for-breakfast kick and since it’s lasted more than 18 months, I don’t think it can be called a “kick” anymore. It’s now a “thing.” That’s an important distinction.
2. I’ve become a bone broth-making machine, and using bone broth in soups and stews not only improves the flavor immensely, it...

Today is the official launch day of a project we’ve been working on since last summer: a magazine version of our Well Fed cookbooks. It’s a “greatest hits” compilation of 130 of my most popular recipes — Chocolate Chili, The Best Chicken Ever, Old School Italian Meat Sauce, Homemade Mayo, Italian Sausage Seasoning — plus basic paleo how-to information and other essays, all...

This is a really good time for paleo cookbooks! And I’m very happy to announce that The Performance Paleo Cookbook, the eagerly-anticipated recipe collection from Stephanie Gaudreau of Stupid Easy Paleo, is being released on January 6. I love this cookbook for three reasons:
1. Stephanie’s recipes are easy to make and always taste delicious. They’re also meticulously tested so they work...
