Spring Chopped Salad

I know it’s summer, but all of the ingredients needed to make the Spring Chopped Salad from Well Fed 2 were in abundance last week when we visited Sunrise Farm for our CSA pickup. So I thought I’d share this recipe, just in case you’re also up to your ears in cucumbers and snap peas where you live. This salad is SO green, and also light, lemony, and thoroughly satisfying. Plus, it’s... read more


I’ve talked about my deep affection for Lunchbots before. Anybody remember this little disaster? NOT A LUNCHBOT Yeah. That’s Silky Gingered Zucchini Soup all over the floor (and my shoes, and my jeans) because that was BEFORE I started using Lunchbots in my kitchen. Crap like that doesn’t happen anymore because I always use Lunchbots now. True story; not an advertisement. Anyway. If... read more

Sunrise Spice

In my Austin kitchen, I had my spices in two cabinets above my stove; I wrote about it in great detail. In my new kitchen, my spices now live in a wide, deep drawer. I slapped labels on the lids and arranged them in very, very rough alphabetical clusters. I’m slowly learning where things are so I can put my hands on them without thinking about it too much. Note that salt and garlic powder, which I... read more

Hike in Quechee Gorge: A Story in Photos

I’ll tell you what: Getting 10,000 steps every day is really fun in Vermont! It’s exciting to be in a new environment, and the possibilities for leisurely strolls and vigorous hikes in our new home are mind-boggling. So far, it looks like the Northern Rail Trail, starting in Lebanon near our gym, will be the go-to for weekday, “I gotta get outside right now” walks. But we’ve... read more

And it’s loaded with goodies you love, plus a personal note signed by a person you like? How you’d like to get a package like that from me four times a year?

Whole30 Resources Roundup

It’s almost August, which means it’s time for the annual “sort of official (but really, you can do it any time) Whole30 sponsored by the good folks at Since 2009, I’ve completed a handful of Whole30 months, usually when I was (a) trying to get a grip on what was happening with my health (see “thyroid removal complications“), or (b) trying to clean up my act... read more

Taylor Nichols: Paleo ChikFilA Nuggets

Since I’m still unpacking moving boxes,Taylor Nichols, the blogger behind Tayste of Paleo, is going to tell you a little bit about the mysteries of chicken labeling and why it’s important to know your local farmers. Then as a treat for doing your homework, you can take a bite of her recipe for Paleo ChikFilA Nuggets.  Take it away, Taylor… I grew up on a dairy farm in Southern Colorado... read more

Classic (Paleo) Potato Salad

Now that white potatoes have been deemed Whole30 compliant [insert cartwheels of joy here], I thought I’d celebrate by sharing some of the reasons to love white potatoes. Here’s my list. 1. They contain a potentially blood pressure-lowering compound called kukoamines. 2. They’re rich in B6 vitamins which are great for nervous system and cardiovascular health. 3. They’re a good... read more

Hello, Vermont: A Story In Photos

We are happily settling into our new home in White River Junction, Vermont, despite the fact that we have six pieces of IKEA furniture to put together and are surrounded by about 70 boxes (not an exaggeration) that need to be unpacked. Here are some photos from our adventures as we said adios to Austin, Texas, and hello to Vermont. Once upon a time… This enormous truck from Gentle Giant arrived at... read more

Classic (Paleo) Diner-Style Home Fries

White potatoes are now Whole30 approved. A cuppa joe. A wise-ass waitress. And a plate piled with over-medium eggs, crispy bacon, and a mound of crispy brown home fries — this is my ideal weekend breakfast at a diner. Sure, we paleo people have been able to enjoy a classic diner breakfast of bacon and eggs all along, but I have to tell you, the announcement that white potatoes are now Whole30 compliant... read more
