I’ve had this recipe idea in my head for ages, maybe even a whole year, and it finally came to fruition! I thought the sweet squash would contrast with the spicy chorizo, and garlic cream is just always a good idea. I went back and forth between calling it “creme” and “cream.” What’s the difference? I don’t know. Creme is just French for cream, I’m assuming. I don’t know that for sure, I’m not going to google it right now. But I went with “cream” anyway, because it seemed less elitist and more down-to-earth, and that’s really what this blog is all about.Read More
It’s soup season! Once those crisp mornings begin, we always have soup in the fridge…..and the freezer. Soup is so easy to make, and perfect for meal prep and packing into lunch boxes. I think I say this every time I post a soup recipe, but this is one of my favorite uses of the Instant Pot! If I can make soup in 5 minutes, I am ALL IN.Read More
This soup recipe was originally sent out to my Newsletter subscribers back in April. It is so quick and simple, but it’s one of my favorites, so I decided to share it here, too. I’m not a big fan of soup, honestly. I like them to be hearty and really flavorful. This one definitely ticks both of those boxes! It’s loaded with veggies and grass-fed beef, so it’s a perfect stick-to-your-ribs meal during the upcoming winter months! And, it’s WAY easier than making an actual lasagna.Read More
Sometimes the most simple food is the best food. I think that especially holds true in the summer! It is hot, nobody wants to turn on their oven, and I want light dishes filled with veggies and fruit from the farmer's market. I mean, I'd like to eat that way all year, but not much grows in Colorado from about November to May.Read More
I know I've talked about this before, but part of a Paleo "lifestyle" is sustainability. Eating animals that are a raised sustainably and humanely, buying products that reduce the chemical load of the earth and my home, and eating in a more nose-to-tail fashion to reduce waste. I do struggle to eat some organ meats (like liver, eek, I hate it). but I try to utilize the bones from the cuts of meat I buy.Read More
When I got my food sensitivity test results about a year ago, the result I was most shocked and disappointed about was eggs. I ate eggs basically every day. They're the perfect, easy, inexpensive food. I loved eggs! It wasn't easy, but I went without them for over 6 months to allow my gut to heal.
Several months ago I tried reintroducing eggs. It went moderately well, and I have discovered that I can eat up to 1 egg at a time without digestive distress! This is so exciting because I can make a breakfast taco, or have baked goods that contain eggs, or even go out for breakfast!Read More
