Paleo Dill Pickles (x2)

This is the year I learned how to can.  I decided this would be the year mostly because: our freezer is full (I think I might go buy another one today).  I told my mom, my best friend, my gym buddy and Raj.  I would do it this year: learn to can.  I poured over…

How to Cut an Avocado

I don’t know how this happened! How is it possible that I hadn’t discovered the magic that is the avocado until adulthood??? Well, I know now that one of my favorite things is avocado covered in lime (or lemon) juice and sprinkled with salt. And that limed and salted, they are fantastic in salads.  And…

Roast Duck with Paleo Plum Tumeric Sauce

Have you ever seen turmeric in it’s original form?  I hadn’t actually thought about what it looked like in it’s un-processed form.  Previously I had bought turmeric that had already had “work done”: powdered and packaged.  I was interested to find it at the local health food market in its glorious original packaging.  It feels…

Balsamic Pickled Fruit

I am sore.  It’s a good sore… but there is a plethora of grunts and groans and pain moans.  I sound like I’m 90 years old. I haven’t been very dedicated to the gym over summer, time was in shortage, and my work out partner was busy.  Do any of you have a gym buddy? …

A friend of mine is trying an elimination diet…

Paleo Deodorant

 Today I’m going to post something a little different.  It’s something I have been trying out for a few reasons.  I may have mentioned a time or two: my thyroid is broken.  Well, maybe not broken, but it doesn’t work the way it should.  Because my thyroid has gone on intermittent strike, I also have…

Paleo White Peach Sangria

I love peaches.  As a kid I remember staying up late “helping” can.  My crazy grandfather would buy 100 lbs of peaches and show up at our house with no notice, whether we liked it or not.  Canning peaches would be the task at hand till late into the summer night.  I was chatting with my…
