Paleo Holiday Movie-Watching Party Menu

It’s snowing — like, really snowing — here in Vermont. I’ve kept my commitment to 10,000 steps per day, so I’ve been enthusiastically enjoying my Northface boots and parka as I stomp through snow, slush, ice, and puddles in varying degrees of frozen treachery. On a stroll to the other end of town, I saw this: I try not to think of it just before bed. As someone on Instagram said,... read more

Happy Paleo Pi(e) Day!

This is a re-run of a post from last year. I liked it so much, I’m sharing it again. HAPPY PI(E) DAY! It’s March 14… or 3/14… or 3.14… a.k.a., Pi Day, a.k.a, an excuse to eat pie. But we’re not eating any pie. Oh, no! We’re eating paleo-approved, protein-packed pie. Or should I say π? Here are three recipes that will cure your craving for pie and won’t... read more

New Year’s Eve, Paleo Style

This year, for the first time in ages, Dave and I have plans to go out to dinner on New Year’s Eve — to Lambert’s! — then on January 1, we’re hopping on a plane to San Francisco for a book signing with Michelle Tam and Diana Rodgers, plus Nom Nom Paleo’s book launch party and Chris Kresser’s book release. Whew! But usually, we stay home. We watch a feel-good movie and eat... read more

Tuesday 10: Tips For A Holly Jolly Christmas

My road to the holidays was paved with good intentions, but I took a detour when I was run over by the flu. I meant to share this list with you on Tuesday, but on Tuesday (and Wednesday and most of Thursday) I was on the couch, under a blanket, with a temperature ranging between 100F and 102F. (I watched the Hell out of some Oddities on Netflix.) But fear not! My fever is gone, my cough is diminishing,... read more

Christmas Balls With Hilah Cooking

You should know by now that whenever I get together with Hilah from Hilah Cooking, hijinks ensue. Hilah invited me to be part of her Christmas Around the World series. Before we got down to business, we were naughty… … and nice… … and then we got cooking frying! If you want to make the grain-free version I talk about in the video, you need to get Tara Grant’s recipe for... read more

Paleo Gifts From The Kitchen

My favorite part of the holidays is making festive food and joyously eating it with the people I love. And that hasn’t changed since I adopted this dino-chow lifestyle. If anything, it’s become an even more celebratory part of my life. If there’s a motto for my blog and cookbooks, it’s this: Preparing quality food is among the most caring things we can do for ourselve and the... read more

Paleo (AIP-Friendly) Maple Shortbread

And just like that — BAM! — it’s the Christmas season. Time to shake off the turkey hangover, put away the pumpkin, and start thinking about holiday cookies. Or maybe that’s just me. But in case that’s you, too, I’ve got a treat for you: a stupid-simple, very delicious cookie recipe from the ebook Christmas Dessert Freedom by Leanne Vogel of Healthful Pursuit. If you’ve... read more

My Favorite Thanksgiving Recipes

[photo] 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. And even though I love to try new recipes, when I cook Thanksgiving at home, I almost... read more
