Paleo Biscuits and Gravy
Tuesday, September 26, 2017 / Published in Breakfast, Increased Vitality, Kids, Nutrition, Recipes
I was a picky eater growing up, and to be honest I never tried biscuits and gravy until I was about 19. Once I finally tried it, it was obvious why this was a popular breakfast option. With the rich buttery biscuits and the savory flavor of the gravy, it is a meal that is hard to mess up. Lucky for me, I only just delved into the world of B&G at such a late stage because it probably would have made it much more difficult to switch over to Paleo Biscuits and Gravy.
Cupping has finally made it to the modern world since the last Olympics when many of our nation's top athletes were sporting the circular bruises. Cupping has been used in places like China for thousands of years, where it has been integrated into their medical care along with injury care. Our guest today has taken some of the traditional cupping roots and integrated it with his functional movement background to come up with a unique approach to functional cupping.
Paleo Granola
Tuesday, September 19, 2017 / Published in Breakfast, Increased Vitality, Nutrition, Recipes
Growing up I was always a big fan of granola instead of the regular ol' cereal that the rest of the family would eat. I was always the weird one who didn't eat my granola or cereal with milk either, I just liked it nice and plain. As I got older, I started to realize that granola is full of gluten containing oats, and with trying to eat grain-free, granola became a big deal breaker for me. Finally a couple years ago I decided to try and create a Paleo Granola recipe that would be grain-free, but completely irresistible.

The zucchini in our garden is absolutely exploding right now. It seems nearly every day I am picking 2-3 large zucchinis off the vine. We've already shared our Paleo Cinnamon Zucchini Bread recipe with you, we made our Chorizo Zucchini Boats (recipe coming later this week), what else could we possibly make? Well, it was time to get creative, and considering this time of year we enjoy dipping vegetables into various dips, it was only fitting to make our Avocado Zucchini Hummus recipe.
We are at the time of year when zucchini is popping up like crazy! If your garden has zucchini like mine does, you probably have some monster zucchini just waiting to be picked. I like to use the huge zucchini for recipes like Paleo Cinnamon Zucchini Bread, whereas the smaller zucchinis I use for zoodles and frying up.
With these hot summer days comes the inevitable: not wanting to cook. On days like this I prefer to have something colder to help keep my body cooler. I don't know about you, but usually salads aren't filling enough to keep me from needing more food later on. That is why in this balsamic peach salad, the secret ingredient to help keep me fuller for longer is...
I don't know about you, but when it is really warm out, the last thing I want is something hot. It is partly due to my fiery constitution, and also due to the fact that food is a metabolic stimulator. This time of year, I tend to lean towards foods and drinks that are cooling and refreshing, such as Strawberry Lemonade.
If you are wanting whipped cream, you might as well make sure you are getting some beneficial nutrients from it. This coconut whipped cream version is paleo and vegan friendly, and provides the body lots of healthy fats to use for energy!
I don't know about you, but sometimes when I wake up, I just don't have the desire to cook a fancy breakfast. No one ever said that we have to make meals like eggs benedict every single day, and quite frankly that doesn't sound like a fun way to relax in the morning. Usually I like to keep my meals simple in the morning, and this Baked Ham and Eggs recipe definitely fits the category!
Here's a question- if you have a child, what would happen if you told your kid every single day that they are ugly, their legs look terrible, no one will ever love them, and they aren't good enough? Do you think your child will feel very good about themselves? This is exactly what a lot of women (some men do this too) all the time when they look in the mirror. If you don't have confidence in your own body image, how will you ever be happy, or find a way to optimize your own health?These are the questions and topics that Jason Seib has no problem discussing. In his business, he works primarily with about 90% females, and even lives in a household full of women and young girls. He gets to watch these interactions within the female mind as an outsider looking in. His goal is to create an environment for his daughters and other young girls to grow up not judging themselves so harshly, and be able to instill positive thoughts into their minds when they see themselves in the mirror.Body awareness and weight loss are big talking points in the world today. What Jason has found that in order to reach the point of sustainable weight loss, it first needs to come from confidence within yourself, and truly understanding your motivation for weight loss. If your motivation is only coming from an extrinsic factor, you will fail. We go over how to be successfull in this episode of Body Image for Women with Jason Seib!
If you are looking for a bread option that is paleo friendly, look no further than this Chocolate Avocado Bread. It has lots of healthy fats with minimal amount of sugar, but definitely hits the right spots!
The soft tissue in the human organism is something that we don't talk enough about. We hear in the media all the time about the benefits of working out, or going on a specific diet, yet we don't talk about what the soft tissue is and how to take care of it.I know that most people who come into my clinic don't take the time every day to stretch and work on their soft tissue. In fact, stretching routines typically aren't a priority until an injury occurs, and then the routine only lasts until the person is feeling close to normal. What do you think would happen if more people added soft tissue work into their daily routine, similar to brushing and flossing our teeth?We brought on a phenomenal practitioner to talk exactly about these issues. Lenny Parracino has mentored me for many years, and I credit his knowledge with a lot of the direction I have taken my educational path. I have never met someone who studies the human organism nearly as much as Lenny does.This episode has tons of great information not only for the everyday person learning more about how to care for their body, but also for practitioners who want to learn more about the soft tissue matrix. You can enjoy all this in this episode of Soft Tissue Health with Lenny Parracino!
Now that we are getting closer to summer, you may notice that strawberries are becoming cheaper in the stores. One of my favorite sweet flavor combinations is strawberries and banana, so it isn't too far fetched to incorporate these into a breakfast muffin. Hence the name, Strawberry Banana Muffins!You may be wondering if this recipe would be too sugary to still be paleo, but with all the seeds, nuts, eggs, and extra collagen this meal still has more protein and fat than sugar. It is overall a little on the sweeter side, which is why I labeled it as a breakfast or dessert option!
Some days I crave meat, sometimes I crave pizza. When both cravings kick in, then that is when true inspiration can occur. This is exactly what happened when I created this Meatzza recipe! I had some ground beef sitting in the fridge that I needed to use, so I figured I would use that as the crust and add some toppings.I have to say, if you are craving pizza and meat, then this definitely will hit the spot! The toppings I have in the recipe are what was in my fridge, you can add any toppings you want!The best part about this recipe is that it is gluten free, dairy free, and grain free. Yet, still absolutely delicious!
