Have you ever met someone and was about to shake their hand, when you noticed that the skin on the back of their hands was really dry, or looked “weird”? It can be a really uncomfortable moment for you, but imagine how the other person must feel in that moment.
While that example could be considered “extreme”, it was a real life example that our guest Jennifer Fugo has gone through.
We decide every year that we are going to grow zucchini in our garden. Having access to your own fresh zucchini is amazing. This year it felt like we were drowning in zucchini though! We were picking multiple 4 plus pound zucchini’s every day for a few weeks during harvest time! I knew it was time to make a bunch of batches of chocolate zucchini bread.
By the end of the season, I was pushing and pulling a wheelbarrow stuffed to the gills with multi pound zucchini and spaghetti squash to my garage with a smile on my face and sweat dripping down my back. Now that is what I call a true fall harvest. Throw in a little rain, colorful leaves, and some crisp air and I was ready to go and carve a pumpkin!
I am going to be completely honest, zucchini is not my favorite vegetable. *GASP* How dare I say something like that!? Well, it is true, but you know what is really great?? I have a creative mind and can find sneaky ways for people like me to consume vegetables that I may not necessarily love on their own.
Many people are starting to suffer from a condition known as chronic fatigue. Chronic fatigue is defined as fatigue that doesn’t go away with rest.
Fatigue is a very broad topic that can have many different causes. Naturally we feel some levels of fatigue from the stress of daily life, but in many cases this should be remedied with adequate rest. Therefore chronic states of exhaustion is caused by something more underlying, such as an undiagnosed illness.
If you’re looking for an easy meal with a spicy kick, look no further than our Instant Pot Mexican Chicken Soup! With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, a lot of us have our heads in the clouds, eager for the excuse to eat extra Hispanic food and drink more tequila than normal this weekend.
Just remember Cinco de Mayo is NOT a traditional Mexican holiday, so don’t be surprised if your Hispanic friends roll their eyes a little at you.
All of my friends know I’m addicted to Mexican food already and have a ton of respect for traditions and culture, so I just use the “holiday” as an excuse to indulge more freely and make fun recipes.
If you’re anything like me, you love to have snacks accessible to eat. Not just any snacks, but snacks you can take on the go and know will fill you up and leave your tummy satisfied. Crackers are one of …
No one likes dry meat right? This Maple Ham recipe is guaranteed to be anything but dry! If you haven’t had a chance to test out an Instant Pot in your kitchen, I definitely recommend looking into one as all of the holiday sales are right around the corner! Every single item I put in my Instant Pot to cook comes out tender and flavorful…and it’s like a crockpot. Once I set the timer, it does all the work for me and I don’t even have to think about dinner again until it’s cooked! Talk about an awesome product to have in your kitchen, especially during the holidays. If you’re a multi-tasker like me, you definitely don’t want to have to stand over your dinner and watch it cook while an hour or sometimes more dwindles away.
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.
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.
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.
There is a battle that rages on in the health world of whether gluten actually causes gut-related issues in people, or not. Many believe that you only need to avoid gluten if you have Celiac Disease, while others believe that gluten completely disrupts the intestinal lining, regardless if you have Celiac or not. One thing is for sure, developing Celiac doesn’t happen overnight, so drawing a hard line in the sand for whether gluten is good for us or not should not be taken so lightly.
It is estimated that around 80% of people suffering from Celiac Disease have remained undiagnosed. For many, it could take up to a decade before they are finally diagnosed, and in these cases, they usually have already developed other autoimmunity issues that they are suffering from. In this episode, we talked with Terri Ward about how to screen for Celiac and other gluten-related disorders (hear that, gluten doesn’t just cause Celiac Disease!). We also delve in to treatment options, and how to cook with gluten-free options. You can enjoy all this in this episode of Celiac Disease with Terri Ward!
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!
