Nutty For Miladamia

My new favorite nut milk! Creamy milky taste without any added sugar and full of healthy fats. The family-owned Jindilli farms are nestled near the Eastern coast of Australia in the very region where the tree originated. Jindilli Farms are ardently impassioned about regenerative farming. It means they run their farms as naturally as possible…

Changing Things Up!

We have some very exciting news to share with all of you. My business has blossomed in a lovely direction. I love my Paleo lifestyle and wanted a place where people could get real food without all the extra crap. Real food, period. Everything is made from scratch with care and love. I take great…

GHEE-lightful 

As we are approaching Whole 30 there are a few kitchen staples you need in your pantry. Ghee or also known as clarified butter is a must! This is what you will use in place of butter. To make ghee, one must remove the dairy proteins by clarifying the organic, pastured butter.  The clarification process…

Just another day at the market…

We have spent the Summer loving the warm weather, friends and healthy food. This morning we headed off to our local farmers market with coffees in hand and empty bags to be filled with organic produce.  The Seattle area is famous for gorgeous bouquet of flowers wrapped in paper. Our farmers market always has a…

Who needs mashed taters..

I just bought some really nice parsnips and rutabaga’s to mash. My family loves to dip their steak in this creamy concoction. The combo creams like potatoes but has a fresh celery taste which goes lovely with steak and chicken. Peel and cube your parsnips and rutabaga’s then boil until fork tender. I used 3…

Whole 30 Approved..

Dinner was served late tonight and I still managed to stay on track for day two! I pan fried pork loin chops in coconut oil after I sprinkled both sides with Trader Joe’s 21 seasoning and sea salt. The chops are pretty thick, 2 inches almost. To make sure they are thoroughly cooked I flipped them…

Berries for later….

Today I bought five packages of blackberries. Of course a little overripe and in desperate need of being used today! I usually throw them in a pot with honey and lemon and make a lovely blackberry jam which we use on gluten free pancakes or in smoothies. Today I’m short on time and I want…

Bone Broth, Stock or Broth?

   Broth is typically made with meat and can contain a small amount of bones (think of the bones in a fresh whole chicken). Broth is typically simmered for a short period of time (45 minutes to 2 hours). It is very light in flavor, thin in texture and rich in protein.Stock is typically made…

Go get a pressure cooker now!

   We made the most amazing beef stew the other night, by we I mean my husband. I had the chance to sit back and watch this incredible meal unfold. My mother-in-law purchased this lovely kitchen staple for me a few months ago and I have been using it to make pastured grass-fed beef bone…

Snack Healthy

Dragon Fruit is a wonderful choice for a quick and healthy snack. I cut mine in half and then again until I have four pretty equal pieces. Place your dragon fruit on a glass dish in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes. Eat with a spoon and you will never miss ice cream again!…
