1-hour meal prep | why I’m done doing

PALEO | WHOLE30 | DAIRY-FREE | GLUTEN-FREE On a normal weekend, when we’re home, I probably spend 5 hours preparing food for the week ahead. That’s half of a weekend day!

how to become famous for your guacamole

I think it’s hilarious how much guac is misunderstood. The best guac isn’t complicated, and it’s definitely not hard to make well. It’s a humble little dish, with a handful of complimentary ingredients that join hands and SING in a brilliant symphony of chunky, tangy goodness. There are two (maybe three) secrets to making exceptional guacamole:… Continue reading how to become famous for your guacamole

paleo deviled eggs, aka easter lessons

how do you easter? We never really celebrated Easter in the traditional way in our house.
