Raising a paleo tot… so far, so good.

I have been wanting to blog about our own experience with feeding a kiddo “real” food for so long now.  It has been a really fun experience for me to have my own little tot to feed.  I love to watch her grow and eat new foods.  I’ve recently become friends with a whole group […]

Have a cupcake or six.

I have really enjoyed this week.  I made a point to try and do some festive things with Poppyseed this Halloween, and I’m glad I did.  I was a little behind in getting her costume (October 30th found me running from store to store in desperate search of something/anything) but in the end I prevailed […]

Not much for sugar coating.

Oh wow, I’m so glad for today.  It’s been so relaxed.  I took P to Crossfit with me and then went for a coffee.  She had swimming lessons and then we came home for a nap.  I’ve already thrown a whole chicken in the crockpot, so my “work” for the day is pretty much done.  […]

Sparkles and the weird thing in my kitchen.

I have been roasting things all week. Mainly vegetables.  And it has made me realize that I am SO over beets.  Don’t get me wrong, I love beets.  They are delicious eaten raw or cooked, and they are a superfood.  But messing with those red little guys suuuuccccckks.  They bleed all over my hands.  They […]

Lola Finished a Whole30!

This will be short and quick, but I wanted to make sure I wrote something about my Whole30 challenge. Not sure what a Whole30 is?  Click on the Whole30 Program and read what is and isn’t eaten. Here is an introductory section taken directly from their website.  (By the way… this is not a membership […]

Summer Winners, Summer Losers…

So, I’m not really sure how this happened, but on Sunday night I decided I would begin a Whole30 challenge on Monday morning.  It all started with my friend’s weight loss group on Facebook.  I know a girl who began this group as a way to hold herself and friends accountable to their weight loss […]

Homemade Coconut Ice Cream

Today has been the best day.  I mean WONDERFUL.  Which is good, because yesterday was a little dramatic.  Dramatic because, well, I’m nursing a baby who happens to be teething.  You do the math. That is all I’m going to say about that. But today was great.  Baby slept late, I woke up feeling rested, […]

I guess I’ll be “that” mom.

I read an article today on USNews.com by an author named Yoki Freedhoff.  Here’s the link, but in case the link breaks one day, here are a few excepts from the article itself: I have three lovely little girls who range in age from 3 to 8. All three go to school, participate in organized, […]

Happy Paleo-versary to Us!

Oatmeal, Poppyseed and I are headed to Ruston to visit my family. And guess what? It’s March 1. Two years ago today we were actually driving home from Ruston, reading our first book about the paleo/primal diet together. We said, “The hell with Whataburger, let’s eat real food for a while.” Two years later, this […]

Lola and Oatmeal Begin the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol

I am so happy to be back on my blog. The past few weeks have been packed – I’ve been working part time and using as much willpower as possible to make every minute that I work really count.  It is scary as hell to go to work and not have any promise of a […]
