roasted poblano waffles (grain/dairy/sugar free)

Ugh, these are just too good. Waffles are just a danger food.  I looooooove waffles, which is a bit weird because growing up they weren’t that special.  Sure, I would gladly eat them doused in syrup AND powdered sugar whenever presented with the delicious opportunity, but they were never a breakfast I really craved. Chocolate…

Soft Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookies (Grain/Gluten/Dairy Free)

Oh my. Remember that whole I-can’t-live-without-sugar thing I mentioned? Ya, well these happened because of it. I guess they aren’t too bad on the sugar scale. I mean, I would have been happy dipping marshmallows into chocolate syrup and sprinkles. That would have been overkill, right? Yes, right. Luckily I whipped these up. So, so…

Pineapple Fried Cauli Rice w/ Garlic Prawns

I love me some Chinese food. Loooovvveeeeee. I don’t love how I feel after eating Chinese food.  This is a small problem if you’re like me and just can’t stay away from it.  At least once a month I get the strongest urge for fried rice.Not just any fried rice though, it has to be…

Pumpkin N’oatmeal (Paleo “Oatmeal”)

I’m an impatient person. I like to think that’s not the case, but this breakfast proves otherwise. I’m also one of those people who get all cranky when stores pump Halloween decorations in September, and then roll out the Christmas Decorations just in time to say “trick or treat”. Can’t we savor and enjoy one…

Peach Frittata

I love fruity food. Let me rephrase that.  I LOOOOVEEE fruity food. Fruit in our food happens quite often around these parts (as you’ll see throughout the week), but this right here I want over and over again. Last week I read It Starts with Food (go read it), and ever since I can’t get…

Weekend Stuff

1. This girl cracks me up.  Wish I could pull off her dance moves. 2. This happened not too long ago, and honestly I’d be ok if it happened every single day. Blueberry Lemon Custard Gluten Free Pie w/ coconut vanilla ice cream.  Yessss please. 3. I’ve wasted about 13.7 hours these past two days longing…

A Beachy 4th

I’m pooped.  Having a fun 4th of July is exhausting, but well worth it. It started with a yummy breakfast of eggs, bacon, and avocado. I’m bleeding America over here with those plates.  Even had red forks to boot. After we ate we headed off for the coast! I haven’t been in years so I…

Hump Day and Spitting Sausages

I can’t decide if this week has flown by or if it’s been dragging on.  Maybe both? Breakfast today was a quick egg scramble with leftover grilled chicken thrown in.  A three ingredient juice topped me off until lunch. I bet you’re dying to know what the three ingredients were…. Some days I leave the…

Adulthood and The Summer Running Streak

Hodwy y’all.  So am I the biggest flake or what?! I don’t know where my head has been over the past couple of weeks (ok, I do.  It’s been buried in fish tacos and tater tots), but I think I finally found it again. Tomorrow is the first day of my new grown up full-time…

Winner Winner Paleo Dinner

Soooooo, about that Whole30 thing.  Needless to say (as my blog absence should be enough explanation) it didn’t go as well as hoped.  I made it about 7 days, then had one bite of froyo.  After this all sugar-free walls came tumbling down. In the last month I’ve had a good amount of paleo eats,…

Whole30 Day 3: Here Fishy Fishy

Sweat Sesh: 45 min Kundalini yoga class It was intense.  By the end of the class my thighs felt like jelly, and my lower abs were on fire. I’m taking it as a sign I’ve neglected them for far too long. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~* A few months ago Cj and I tried Brussels sprouts for the first…

Whole30: Day 2

Sweat Sesh: 2 mile walk to store and back. Yes, I did get sweaty.  It was hot out and this eskimo bundled up.  I always underestimate the temps. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Yesterday went good, except for a couple small Whole30 fails. When making dinner’s cauli mash I threw in a tbsp of grass-fed butter without even thinking…
