How Does Your Pantry Stack Up?

How Does Your Pantry Stack Up?

Out of the Top 50 Essential Paleo Pantry Foods from Mark’s Daily Apple, I was only missing 8. Not bad. Of those 8, I would probably only consider bringing 2 of them in. I can live without the rest. Here is the link to his great list; http://www.marksdailyapple.com/top-50-essential-paleo-pantry-foods/. Not everyone is familiar with all these items and I'm often asked where I shop. Our groceries come from several different sources. My husband gardens some, with plans on much more next year! I get as much produce as possible, and sometimes chicken, cheese, coffee,...

Optimizing Your Time

Optimizing Your Time

Another objection I often hear from those new to healthy eating is that it is too time-consuming. Again, yes it can be, but there are many things you can do to optimize your efforts. First, I challenge you to move your and your family’s health up a bit on your priority list. Are there things you could cut back on in order to cook and eat healthier? You must always have a plan and you must always have healthy staples on hand. When those 2 things are in place, it's much easier to make good meal and snack choices. Choose a specific day to do your planning and...

Why I Love Farmers Markets and Alternative Grocery Sources

Why I Love Farmers Markets and Alternative Grocery Sources

I love to shop at Farmers Markets! There are several small markets near us, but the bigger ones are 30-40 minutes away. Too bad they aren't closer, but we do go as often as we can. Farmers Markets have great energy and really are quite fun. Patrons tend to be much more friendly and social than at a typical grocery store. That makes shopping less of a chore and more of an outing. Often times our entire family will go. Not an offer that is usually made nor accepted when going to the grocery store. Even on vacation we prioritize them. We either take our camper or...

Optimizing Your Organic Investment

Optimizing Your Organic Investment

When I work with people who are new to the primal life, an objection I often hear is that eating healthy and/or organic is expensive. OK, it can be, but it doesn’t have to be. Here's an example of how you can optimize your organic investment.</strong Every few weeks I buy 2 organic free-range chickens. Depending on size, they average about $20 each vs. about $4 for a CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation) chicken at your grocery store. I'm sure that made some of you gasp, but please hear me out We are a family of 4; husband, 2 teenage daughters, and me....

Paleo f(x)

Paleo f(x)

What an amazing 3 days at the Paleo f(x) 2017! I got to meet many of my health and fitness heroes, including Mark Sisson of Primal Blueprint where I received my Health Coach certification. Spending time learning more about my passion with like-minded people was incredibly energizing. I pushed my comfort zone quite a bit too. I brushed my teeth with black toothpaste, drank raw camel’s milk, drank gut shots, drank lucid dreaming tea, ate dried crickets, ate an FBomb, sat at an oxygen bar, and met people from all over the world. Most importantly, I met many...
