Diet Quickie: Nuts

When I travel these days, I make sure to pack a nut sack. (And yes, I giggle every time I say that.) I don’t want to be stuck on a plane or in an airport without something to snack on. And a bag of nuts is the perfect travel companion. Nuts are portable, they don’t…

Put The Lime In The Coconut (And Add Tuna Sashimi)

Spring is here but I’m already thinking about the summer. Summer means short(er) shorts and bikinis and one piece bathing suits. So I’m craving some clean foods.

It also fits in with the fairly new primal lifestyle my husband and I have been following. Using full fat ingredients, lean meats and lots…

Put a Zucchini in Your Veggetti (Or Spiralize It)

Because my husband and I are not eating any more processed carbs, we’ve been experimenting with all kinds of paleo-friendly recipes, like this amazing sausage, kale and zucchini soup. I’m lucky because my husband is fully committed to this lifestyle change. And he is a fantastic cook. A winning combination. I love pasta. And I…
