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 […]

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 […]

Ground meat – paleo the easy way

Today has been one of those days. If you’ve ever stayed at home with a kid (or kids) then you know the day I’m talking about.  It’s the kind of day where at 12pm you are still in your pajamas, you hair is in a messy ponytail with bobby pins in about five places, and […]

Paleo Q&A

Oh hi.  Remember me?  It’s been a while.  I’ve had a bit of writer’s block.  You see, I knew I needed to blog about something paleo, especially since I have a fancy (and by fancy I mean not) new subtitle thing going on up there that includes “Paleo Lola.”  So I’ve been feeling all of […]

Paleo Shrimp Alfredo

Last week I came across a really good recipe for paleo spinach and artichoke dip.  I bought everything I needed to make it, but I got a little overconfident and purchased fresh artichokes rather than the jarred kind. Big mistake.  Artichoke: 1 point.  Lola: 0 points. Yep, it took 4 knives to get beaten that […]

Just typing.

Today something weird happened while I was at work. I was sitting in a waiting room, waiting on the opportunity to meet with one of my customers.  I heard the snap of an iPhone camera shutter.  I didn’t think much of it and kept tapping at my computer screen, preparing for the meeting.  But I […]

(Almost) Paleo Chicken Noodle Soup

I don’t think I’ve done a food blog in a long time, so here’s a quick one. I’ve never claimed to be extreme paleo or primal.  I keep trying to give up dairy, and keep falling flat on my face, so I guess I’ll be 80/20 primal forever.  In reality, I’m probably more like 90/10 […]

Lola and Oatmeal Visit the Witch Doctor

So Saturday morning was an interesting one for us. We woke up early, packed up little Poppyseed and drove into Houston.  We rarely go into Houston, but we actually had an appointment with none other than a witch doctor.  Okay, maybe not quite a witch doctor, but a naturopath. For those of you not familiar, […]

My (Sort of) Primal Pregnancy

Well, since I’m 40 weeks, 1 day pregnant and I’m still here, I thought I’d do a blog about eating primal while being knocked up. First, a disclaimer. I’m well aware that it can sound, er, “preachy,” to talk about eating healthy.  Most people will put their guard up if they think someone is judging […]

Primal Success Story: Johanna

So, lots of people think that Oatmeal and I are crazy for eating the way that we do. Even though I’m known to have dessert or a cheat meal once in a while, we still catch a lot of comments from people who think that eating clean and avoiding processed food and grains is “extreme” […]
