Paleo Coffee Energy Bites

Coffee Energy Bites

  This recipe title describes my life lately: daily coffee, to sustain my energy, and only able to eat in small bites throughout the day. Moving with a baby during the holidays is one intelligent decision.   Now that I live in the same city as my sister, I go over to her place much […]

Spicy Pumpkin Spice Latte (Paleo)

    Okay, I’ll admit I’ve never had a PSL. In fact, I didn’t know what that acronym meant for the last 3 years. I know what PYT stands for (Pretty Young Thing, thanks MJ). So I assumed PSL was some reiteration of this. It is not. If you didn’t catch on, it means Pumpkin Spice […]

Cranberry Fig Collagen Protein Bars (Paleo, AIP)

    I’m not a big supplement taker. One because I can’t remember to take them for longer than two weeks, two because they are usually expensive to buy high quality ones, and three because it’s hard to tell if they’re working.   There have been a few during my pregnancy that I can tell are […]

Orange Cream Healing Smoothie (Paleo, AIP)

    The question I get asked the most about the autoimmune protocol is, “What do I eat for breakfast!?” Inevitably, my answer is always bacon and leftovers from dinner. There’s a fifty percent chance the questioner will frown at me with that answer. Some of us just don’t like leftovers in the morning. My […]
