I heart camping.  I was especially excited to write this post after our camping trip and share some of our go to camping food.  Although it was good fun, there were some challenges along the way,  and so I decided to compile a little list for you.  You can check it out at the bottom of this post.  But first, here is what we ate and the pics are below. Friday-Dinner- steak, roasted carrots, skillet potatoes, and salad Saturday- Breakfast- eggs and bacon. Lunch- paleo wraps with lunch meat, mustard and kraut, carrot sticks. Dinner- Sausage skillet with onions, mushrooms […]

Homemade Sports Drink

Homemade Sports Drink

It’s hot.  And I’m sweaty.  Do you ever feel like have a cold drink after being outside in the summer or after a good workout?  Just water doesn’t sound good and you know sports drinks are full of crap, you know that right?  I mean flame retardants in your drink just never seemed liked a good idea to me.  Not to mention the food coloring, high fructose corn syrup, and other food additives…blah!  It’s super easy to make your own and only takes 4 simple ingredients.  #1 Water.  #2 Himalayan Sea Salt- this is where you’ll get 83 different minerals […]

Coconut Milk Whipped Cream

Coconut Milk Whipped Cream

This is one of the BEST treats out there, especially topped on some fresh strawberries!  And since “tis the season”  for berries up here in NWA you should make some of this pronto!  So the deal with coconut milk is it can totally vary brand to brand.  Of course it’s best to buy organic but even that doesn’t always steer you clear of some of the extra additives that might be added.  I typically stick only to Natural Value brand because it is just straight full fat coconut milk.  Through many experiments of making coconut milk whipped cream with Thai Organic, […]

Liver Shot- The BEST energy drink

I’m telling you this will change you life.  Forget the toxic energy drinks out there, forget that morning coffee.  This is the real deal.  In case you missed my previous post on all the amazing benefits of organ meat you can check it out here.  Also some of my favorite bloggers have written some great articles on the benefits of liver here and here. So where in the world did I get the outrageous idea to start shooting down some liver?  Well, even though I know all the amazing benefits of eating organ meat, I really am only able to […]

Don’t stop reading yet.  Organ meat is one of the best ways to get tons of nutrients that you cannot get in any other food.  Did you know that organ meat was considered the prized meat of many traditional cultures?   In fact, some tribes only ate the organ meat and tossed the lean muscle meat! Organ meat is extremely rich in all fat soluble vitamins, essential fatty acids and tons of trace minerals.  Not that long ago families would eat liver and onions once a week.  Now recommendations have gone against this practice due the fear of toxins in […]

Posted: April 28, 2014

I was so lucky I had the opportunity to attend Paleo f(x) in Austin last weekend.  Austin holds a special place in my heart because I grew up right outside of the city in a town called Round Rock.  So when I saw the conference was being held there, and my parents could watch the littles for us it was a WIN WIN.  Not to mention my favorite ice cream place is there, Lick Ice Cream, but unfortunately we didn’t make it there during the right hours…waaahhhhhh!!!!  I did make up for missing my ice cream by eating at a local […]

Peppermint Fudge

Peppermint Fudge

I’ve always loved fudge…well, who am I kidding, I’ve always loved a lot of things.  But fudge is always considered extra special to me.  I literally turned my kitchen in to a treat factory over these past couple of weeks.  I had this grand idea to make valentines love boxes – see below It’s been fun and dangerous all at the same time.  I’ve been delving into blogs and buying cookbooks that I probably shouldn’t have to get it all together.   And thank God I’m starting the 21 day sugar detox on Monday because I’m sure I have eaten […]

Salted Chocolate Almond Candy Bar

Salted Chocolate Almond Candy Bar

Lately my husband, (yes, I’m going to blame him for bringing this to our house and forcing me to eat them) has been buying this salted almond chocolate bars.  Have you seen em? I believe they are from the devil.  I always tell him, “okay, fine, just give me ONE square.”  Has anyone ever just eaten ONE square!?! Probably never.  Needless to say the madness had to stop and so I created what I thought would be a better option then the store bought candy bar.  It was real tough testing all these to make sure I got it just […]

Paleo Snow Ice Cream

Paleo Snow Ice Cream

                                  It snowed buckets here over the past couple of days and it is FREEZING!  Not just outside but in my house!  We’re renting this cute historic home while we build our new house.  WELL, we signed up for this when it was all cute and fun and pleasant outside.  I fell in love with all the gorgeous windows that I’m now cursing because you can literally feel the wind coming through the windows.  I sleep with sweats, a fleece, 2 pairs of socks, […]
