Thai Pink Grapefruit Salad

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... read more

Paleo Gado Gado Recipe

In each issue of Paleo Magazine, I share the story of a traditional recipe and adapt it to fit into a healthier paleo lifestyle. In the article below, I took a deeper look at the Indonesian dish gado-gado, a salad that’s hearty enough to be a meal—and super easy to make. It’s great for filling you with energy during a post-holiday clean-up, and the bonus is that it doesn’t feel... 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

Paleo Caesar Salad

In each issue of Paleo Magazine, I share the history of a traditional recipe and adapt it to fit into a healthier paleo lifestyle. For the July issue, I explored the disputed but entertaining story of this classic bowl of greens. To understand the story of the Caesar Salad, travel back in time to Prohibition-era California — warm sun and empty cocktail glasses. Then imagine the rollicking good time to... read more

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

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

Great Ingredients: No Recipe Required

As we get closer to our move — 11 days and counting! Our one-way airline tickets for Sunday, July 6 are purchased! — it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to deal with keeping us well fed. I love the process of making up new recipes or devouring other peoples’ cookbooks for inspiration, shopping for the perfect ingredients, and spending a few hours playing in the kitchen, but... read more

Potluck Season: Paleo Summer Salads

According to the Internet, May is National Salad Month. Who am I to disagree?! With that in mind — and with potluck season officially kicking off in the U.S. with Memorial Day next week, a.k.a., the first official holiday of the summer — here are some of my favorite Paleo Summer Salads. They’re all easy to double and triple for sharing at potlucks, and they’re so packed full of flavor and... 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

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

How To Peel A Grapefruit

I la-la-love pink grapefruit, and the Thai Pink Grapefruit Salad from Well Fed 2 is a both unexpected (dried shrimp! coconut! lime!) and delicious. The combo of sweet, salty, cool, and creamy is irresistible — as is pink grapefruit all on its own. We’re coming into grapefruit season now, so put away those shameful serrated grapefruit spoons and take a look at this technique I learned from my dad... read more
