What is the Paleo diet

Healthy Coconut Joys

Image healthy-almond-joys-2.jpg

As you can imagine, both store-bought chocolate/coconut/almond candy bars and homemade coconut candy recipes are FULL of refined sugar—anywhere from 1 to 3 cups of it per batch. It doesn’t have to be that way. Treats can be healthy too! I’ve teamed up with Nuts.com to give you these healthy Coconut Joys with a fraction of the sweetener! I was really impressed with how many ingredients I found on Nuts.com recently. I’ve been Read more

Image book-approach-fb.png

The ability to get affordable and tasty Paleo meals on the table fast is a key skill for most of us to be able to stick with Paleo over the long term.  When my family gets home late and exhausted from swim practice, dance class or parent-teacher conference night, getting dinner on the table for an on-time bedtime is my number one priority. And, when I’m out of inspiration, cookbooks like Mel Joulwan’s new Well Fed Weeknights are true Read more

It’s the middle of September, and even though the heat is still here in Los Angeles, pumpkin-spiced everything is back in full force!  And though the commercialism of it all can get on my nerves, I have to say that I am really grateful for the hyped-up fall displays, decorations, and foods.  Fall has always been […] The post Homemade Autumn Spice Toilet Spray (stop the smell before you go!) appeared first on Rubies & Read more

It doesn’t feel quite like fall here, just yet, but you can already tell that the seasons are changing. We just released our new Sweet Pack of organic spice blends, and we are so excited about them! Since we are now selling our Cinnamon Sugar Cookie blend all year round, we added one of my favorites to the mix this year, Gingersnap.

Moving weekend is officially here! I can't even believe it--it seriously feels like yesterday that Rob started traveling to and from California every week, but sure enough that was three whole months ago.I thought I would hate living alone all summer and while I didn't love it, Ender and I did just fine together. It was so nice having Rob home every weekend and I'm so glad we made it a priority to see our friends every Saturday or Sunday instead Read more

Do Blood Glucose Levels Affect Hunger and Satiety?

You've heard the story before: when you eat carbohydrate-rich foods that digest quickly, it sends your blood sugar and insulin levels soaring, then your blood sugar level comes crashing back down and you feel hungry and cranky.  You reach for more carbohydrate, perpetuating the cycle of crashes, overeating, and fat gain.It sounds pretty reasonable-- in fact, so reasonable that it's commonly stated as fact in popular media and in casual Read more

6 Reasons Why People Quit Paleo

People join the Paleo challenge for a variety of reasons including weight loss,1 the significant health effects on blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels, 2,3 or simply the overall lifestyle improvements.4 But there are an equal number of reasons why folks jump off the Paleo wagon.

Pajeon (Korean Scallion Pancake)

Image img_94652.jpg

Quick language lesson: jeon means “pancake” in Korean. This term is associated with a variety of pancakes, from kimchi to kale pancakes. Today’s recipe, Pajeon, stands as the basis for many further layers of the Korean pancake underground; its most popular descendent is Haemul Pajeon, or seafood scallion pancake, which is featured in Paleo Takeout. While the seafood variation is a family favorite, I also appreciate the simplicity and ease Read more

How to Snack Responsibly in the New World of Health Food Marketing

Image How-to-Snack-Responsibly-in-the-New-World-of-Health-Food-Marketing-in-line.jpg

The growth of the Primal movement has not gone unnoticed. Food producers have latched on because, as much as we emphasize foraging the perimeter of the grocery store—the produce, the meats, the bulk goods—and eschewing processed foods, we remain creatures of convenience. Not everyone has the time or inclination to personally prepare every single morsel that enters their mouths. Sometimes we just need something quick and easy to snack on. And the Read more

So last week, while I was on book tour, a lovely and beautiful young woman asked when I was going to do a podcast. The thought has popped into my mind once or twice, but I’ve just never followed through with it. I’ve never felt passionate enough about one topic to put it into a podcast, since I leave ALL my thoughts here. But it got me thinking, maybe I should try it! I’m testing out some video and trying to teach myself some Read more
