Single Serving Protein Powder-free Protein Pancake

Single Serving Protein Powder-free Protein Pancake

I like the concept of protein powders and making protein pancakes from them, but I can’t find a protein powder that I think tastes good. Thanks to almost 3 years Paleo, my taste for sweet isn’t what it used to be (I count that as […]

Arugula Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette

Arugula Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette

I eat a lot of salads because they’re easy to prepare and healthy, but they can get old fast. By using different greens and homemade dressings, I keep my salads from being boring. I love arugula, which has a lot more flavor that plain old […]

Raisin and Almond Rocky Road

Raisin and Almond Rocky Road

  Another semester is almost over, and needless to say I have been busy. I have only been cooking the basics lately and haven’t had much time for creative cooking. I have actually been meaning to post this dessert recipe for a while but haven’t […]

Chocolate Pudding Green Smoothie (Banana, Chocolate, Almond Green Smoothie)

Chocolate Pudding Green Smoothie (Banana, Chocolate, Almond Green Smoothie)

So I’ve been drinking green smoothies for maybe maybe a month to six weeks now and I have to say when I skip my smoothie in the morning I really miss it! They make me feel energized (I’ve been referring to them as rocket fuel). […]

Grain-Free Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Grain-Free Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

I love to eat eggs for breakfast, but there’s nothing wrong with taking a break from the usual for a while. I’ve been tinkering with a recipe for pumpkin pancakes for a while, and this formulation is one that I ended up loving. The reason […]

Whole 30 Day 28

Whole 30 Day 28

Happy 4th of July! I’m actually thankful to be doing Whole 30 during the holiday because it will keep me from succumbing to too many treats and cheats. This morning I made a big breakfast. I guess I was excited by the 4th so much […]

Whole 30 Day 26

Whole 30 Day 26

It’s almost been a year since starting Paleo, but for some reason it took me way too long to start incorporating dinner leftovers into breakfast. I’ve seen people on other Paleo blogs include leftover veggies, but for some reason I didn’t think I could stomach […]

PaleoPax Monthly Tasting Box 2

PaleoPax Monthly Tasting Box 2

I got my first PaleoPax box in May, and then I received my second in late June. I was even more pleased with this second installment compared to the first because it seemed like there was a good variety of snacks and several were from […]
