5 Healthy (Cold) Lunch Ideas

So I recently started working a new job – Operations Manager at LA Fitness. I try to bring my own lunch with me everyday, but with there being no way to heat my food, thinking of what to bring without getting sick of things has been a challenge. Admittedly, I definitely don’t end up bringing my lunch every single day, but I do my best to bring it most days. My gym is very close to the mall, so sometimes…

Salmon Salad (Quick & Easy)

Salmon Salad (Quick & Easy) I have to admit I’ve been slacking lately on eating my veggies. The other day my body was screaming to me that I needed to eat a salad. So I made a salmon salad the past for the past two days for lunch & I even had some green juice! It may have also had something to do with the fact that I just bought some Tessemae’s & Jacqueline and Jerome dressings that I was excited to…

The Salad Dressing Formula

It’s no secret that eating salad is great for our health. That is, of course, depending on what dressing is on it. Salad doesn’t have to be boring – use different oils, acids, and spices for a new flavor explosion with every salad! You can easily make any salad dressing by mixing one part acid + two or three (depending on how tart you like it) parts oil + any spices you like. Acids: lemon juice, lime juice, citrus, apple…

Buffalo Wings

I’m a huge fan of buffalo wings- buffalo chicken has always been one of my favorite foods. I honestly don’t know what took me so long to make my own. Since going paleo, buffalo wings became a rare treat- but I will be making these a lot more often now! This recipe is SO easy- and for those of you who know me, you know I loveeee easy recipes! Easy + Delicious = you can’t go wrong! This would be…

Grain Free Tacos

  Who needs Taco Bell when you can make these grain free tacos super quick AND not feel like you just died after you’re done eating?! I love Mexican food and I’m completely addicted to Must B Nutty tortillas, so, naturally, I was excited to make some grain free tacos now that I don’t eat corn or flour tortillas anymore. I used Flavorgod Everything seasoning to whip these up quickly, and they were a big hit with my family. Betcha can’t…

Strawberry Strudel Protein Shakes

I started working out with a personal trainer about two months ago and he is kicking my ass! His workouts are super tough and I am LOVING it! I decided to try drinking protein shakes so I can help rebuild/repair my muscles after all the heavy lifting. After looking into different protein powders- egg white protein, beef protein, & whey protein, I decided grass-fed whey protein was the way to go. I normally avoid dairy as much as possible (I’ll indulge…

Cedar Plank Salmon

Grilling season is finally here! That makes me a happy girl. Not just because of BBQing (which is, of course, awesome), but because I absolutely despise the cold weather. Winter really gets me down- I feel depressed, unmotivated, tired, lazy, etc. As soon as I’m able to, I plan on moving to San Diego, California- or possibly some other warm-weather state that has access to healthy food 😉 For now, I am going to soak up every ounce of sun/warm…

Grain-Free Cauli-“Rice” Balls

I haven’t eaten a rice ball in years. Even before paleo I only ate them on occasion because I would normally just get pizza when I went to the pizzeria. Rice is a food I’ve always loved, but have only eaten it very rarely since starting my paleo lifestyle. My cousin gave me the idea to make a paleo version of Italian style rice balls and I thought that was an awesome idea. If you can’t tolerate dairy, you can…

Paleo Salmon Teriyaki

I’ve been on my journey to optimal health for a little bit over 3 years now. Eating paleo made me feel much better at first, but I must admit I eat way too much paleo sweets and treats. I would always tell myself, “it’s okay, it’s paleo.” Now that I am studying nutritional therapy, I am finally coming around to accept that no, that really doesn’t make it okay. Once in a while, as a treat, yes that’s fine, but…
