Toasted Almond Protein Shake

This is the greatest tasting protein shake I have ever made- hands down. I want to drink it all time, but of course I hold myself back to post-workout only 😉 This will bring you back to your childhood days of eating Toasted Almond ice cream pops – without all the junk. Now here’s a motivator to workout hard! You go through all the torture of the workout, get your endorphins, and then get a delicious treat… ahhh perfection! Try…

Grey Sole Almondine

  This recipe is light & perfect for summer. I aim to eat fish at least twice a week. Grey sole is very thin and cooks really fast so it’s perfect for a quick & easy meal. I paired my fish with asparagus sauteed in olive oil and roasted red potatoes (potatoes not featured in the recipe). I use Kasandrinos EVOO. I don’t know if you’ve heard about it, but there’s been deception going on in the olive oil industry-…

Coconut Mango Protein Shake

  So I’ve been training for about two months now and I am starting to see results! I’m so happy- I love watching my muscles form and feeling stronger. I’m also feeling better about myself after I had gained weight last summer/winter. My weight has always been up and down, but whenever I gain weight I really feel sad about it. While my focus is mainly on health rather than on weight loss, I do feel better about myself when…

Chocolate Banana Protein Shake

    Now that 4th of July is over, it’s that time of the summer where I start panicking about how summer is almost over and the torturous winter will soon be back. It’s very hot and humid today- but you will not ever hear me complain about that! I don’t get people who complain about the hot weather, seriously. I soak up every ounce of sun I can get and enjoy every second of the hot weather because it’s…

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…

Chive & Brown Butter Sweet Potato Fries

  So, I’ve been using Tin Star Foods grass-fed ghee for a few months now and it has become my favorite cooking fat (as well as a delicious addition to my coconut oil coffee) and last week I finally decided to try the grass-fed brown butter and… Oh. My. God. It was heavenly. I am now obsessed. The first day I put it in my coffee and then used it in the pie crust for my Chocolate Pudding Pie. Then as I…

Grain-Free Lasagna (not strict paleo)

  Lasagna was one of my all-time favorites growing up- and it’s still one of my favorites. Since going paleo, lasagna is something I very, veryyyy rarely eat. I don’t do well at all when I eat wheat, but I always loved pasta. When I discovered Cappello’s it was a game-changer. Now I can enjoy grain-free pasta?? What?! I held off on trying Cappello’s for a long time (despite all the good reviews) because they didn’t sell it at stores…

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…

Paleo Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken

      I haven’t ate fettuccine alfredo in years (since before going paleo in February 2012). Now that I’ve let myself indulge in the wonderfulness that is Cappello’s (cappellosglutenfree.com), I’ve started eating some of my childhood favorites again. Cappello’s products are unbelievable. They’re gluten-free, grain-free and out-of-this-world delicious. I got their multipack that comes with fettuccine, lasagna sheets, & gnocchi. I also got their cookie dough (which is paleo & vegan-friendly). All of their products are truly outstanding. I do have to…

Paleo Chocolate Pudding Pie (Nut-Free)

Growing up, for every holiday my grandma would always make tons of food. She would make spanokopita from scratch (which the whole family would devour) and tons of desserts to bring over. One of my favorite desserts that she would make was Chocolate Pudding Pie. I always looked forward to it with her homemade whipped cream on top. After she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, we started buying spanokopita from Greek shops and there was no more of her homemade…
