What is the Paleo diet

Tomato, Basil, and Ricotta Flatbread

Image Tomato-Basil-Ricotta-Flatbread-12-800x533.jpg

Since I have allowed Kite Hill products to come into my life, I have had so many recipe ideas that I didn’t make prior, because we are primarily dairy-free. As much as these new recipes are about making delicious food, they are also just me getting to be creative in the kitchen, and make things that I feel are fun to make. Flatbread could technically be pizza, so you could also use this recipe as a pizza crust, and go to town with fun Read more

The Ultimate Benefits of Going Paleo

A fundamental principle of the Paleo Diet is to go back to the way of our ancestors and depend on all-natural sustenance to survive. Some people are skeptical about the diet, but the outstanding benefits for the people who have tried it are evidence that there is more to it than just a mere change in one’s food choice. It gives our bodies an opportunity to go back to the way they enjoyed food thousands of years ago. The myriad of benefits from Read more

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Image img_1291.jpg

I realize that this recipe’s title starts with the word “spaghetti”, but make no mistake about it – the meatballs are the star of this week. Since first developing this meatball recipe for Paleo Takeout, we’ve made it often, at least monthly. There are a few little touches that make the meatballs just perfect: a mix of beef and pork so that the meat flavor is prominent but not overwhelming, egg yolks for Read more

‘Almost’ Amba

Image wf2-amba-1024x1024.jpg

Traditional amba is a sort of pickle condiment made from mango and spices. It originated in Iraq, but is also found in Israel and India, where it shows up in street food like falafel, shawarma, and sabich (a sandwich made of hard boiled eggs, eggplant, pickles, and tahini sauce). I’m not ashamed to admit it: After reading about sabich and amba sauce, I became a little obsessed. I’d never eaten either of these things, and I needed to know how they Read more

Holy smokes. I can’t even begin to describe the past couple of weeks. As many of you know, since August 1, I’ve been on my Ready or Not! cookbook tour, and in just the last 14 days, I’ve made pitstops in Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Minnesota, Illinois, Ontario, and now, New York. Until a few days ago, Henry and the boys accompanied me, dutifully lugging suitcases full of Nom Nom Paleo swag wherever we went. (Don’t worry—we built in enough time Read more

CrossFit Training: How to Support Overall Wellness and Longevity with Primal

Image Inline_CrossFit_for_Health_Longevity.jpg

There are some who hold the view that at birth, each of us is allotted a finite supply of energy which exercise depletes, thus hastening our demise. An intense regimen like CrossFit, in this paradigm, would hasten a person’s demise. That’s wrong, of course. Those who remain sedentary their entire lives often have short, miserable ones, while regular exercisers enjoy better health throughout their time on earth. Exercise has real Read more

Does Paleo Have To Be Low Carb?

Image paleo-low-carb-300x157.jpg

While carbs from Paleo-friendly vegetable and fruit sources as well as nuts and seeds add interest to our diets, taste great, and provide fiber and valuable micronutrients, we should only eat enough to support our individual needs and goals. Why? Because excess carbohydrates result in metabolic disturbances that create inflammation, fat accumulation, and associated diseases. So how much is enough? The Paleo diet is referred to as low carb but is Read more

Image tumblr_oupeyebUcI1qe86euo1_500.jpg

Hey Vegans, if you miss meatballs, cook some whole mushrooms in your marinara. They have a meaty taste and texture when you eat it with pasta. And for you vegan cavemen (like me), I served it over paleo pappardelle (Took a daikon radish and stripped off long thick strands with a veggie peeler, then boiled them for 5 minutes).

Ready or Not! Nom Nom Paleo

Image ready-or-not-nom-nom-paleo.jpg

I have a confession to make. Turns out writing a cookbook a year for 6 years reeeeeeally burns you out on cooking. I don’t want to cook. Like very badly. So I stopped. I bought rotisserie chicken and salad, and had my husband and kids make dinner (hey, they kinda owed me after over a decade, amIright?!). Some nights I struuuuugle, but manage to bring myself to cook. It’s been a huge challenge. Then my friend, Michelle sent me her new Read more

Review: Ready or Not! By Michelle Tam and Henry Fong of Nom Nom Paleo

Image 800OptaaDSC_1276-750x1125.jpg

When I started eating Paleo 4 years ago, Nom Nom Paleo’s recipes were some of the first I worked up the courage to try. I vividly remember seeking out a pastured pork shoulder to make Kalua Pig (which I still keep in my freezer almost all the time) and buying a Dutch oven so I could try Oven-Braised Mexican Beef. Mostly I remember that because my oven broke, but the beef was really good. I’ve been low-key stalking Nom Nom Paleo for years because Read more

How to Reverse Sear a Steak

Image How-to-Reverse-Sear-a-Steak-1-800x533.jpg

I’ve been hearing about the Reverse Sear method for cooking steaks for a long time now, but I figured “why bother? I’m happy with how we cook steaks now.” If they are thin steaks, we just toss ’em on the grill. If they are super thick (like a rib steak) then we sous vide them. But what about steaks that are in between? Porterhouse and T-Bone steaks are usually 1.5″ – 2″ thick, and the bone in the Read more
