5 Paleo Treats That Won’t Count Toward Your 80/20

Image 5-Paleo-Treats-That-Wont-Count-Toward-Your-80-20-Eskimo-Pies-The-Paleo-Mom.jpg

The 80/20 rule states that following the Paleo diet 80% of the time allows us to experience 100% of the benefits of this framework for choosing foods.  The 20% (about 3 meals per week) in which we veer off the Paleo straight and narrow is important for finding balance, beating back any sense of deprivation, giving us flexibility while traveling or visiting friends and family, and allow a mechanism to enjoy the occasional treat.  Of course, how we Read more

Pork and Apple Ravioli

Image 3H5A8598-e1480533277640-800x719.jpg

Ravioli isn’t a dish that you think you can enjoy anymore, when you switch to a grain free diet, and it’s a dish that many of you may be missing. This recipe for Pork and Apple Ravioli is one that my sister, Caitlin developed when we were writing Make it Paleo 2. It is one of the most delicious ravioli recipes I have ever had. I am continually stunned with the talent my sister has when it comes to cooking. She was the only female Read more

Amaretto Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes

Image Amaretto-Cranberry-Chocolate-Chunk-Cupcakes-688x1024.jpg

A cool thing that happened last week… one of the toughest guys I work out with turned 64.  He whoops my ass daily and I love our WODs. I decided to make him cupcakes but since we’re all CFers, of course I had to make them as paleo as possible. Of course, the end result of the Paleo cupcake was “ruined” when I topped it with a homemade Nutella frosting and sprinkles. But hey, a birthday cupcake isn’t the same without sprinkles. I figured Read more

10 Best Low Carb Stuffing Recipes

Image lowcarbstuffingrecipesfeatured.jpg

When you’re on a low carb diet, stuffing (or dressing depending on where you grew up) is something you just assume you have to give up – along with other starchy side dishes that usually accompany a great roasted turkey. In reality though, just like there are great low carb alternatives to mashed potatoes, there... Read More » The post 10 Best Low Carb Stuffing Recipes appeared first on I Breathe I'm Hungry.

As you probably know by now, Rob and I have moved several times. What you might not know is that by this point, it sometimes feels as though we have friends or family in almost every city in the country. Between the friends we've made in our many homes and the friends from home who have moved to other cities, we really can travel to a wide variety of places and meet up with people we grew up with, or people we've come to know and love more Read more

Instant Pot pressure cookers on deep sale today

I've written twice before about the Instant Pot, an electronic pressure cooker that helps make healthy food in a time-efficient manner (1, 2).

Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) Chicken Soup with Kale

Image img_5020.jpg

As I mentioned over Instagram the other day, our youngest son recently came down with a fever, the first of his life (he’s only 11 months old, but still, I like saying that). Four airplane rides over the course of seven days will do that (we traveled to my home state of Washington for Thanksgiving last week). No problem regarding the fever, though – chicken soup to the rescue, and he was back to his usual, trouble-making self the Read more

My 8 Favorite International Dishes to Expand Your Primal Palate

Image Inline_International_dishes.jpg

Standard Primal eating is quite simple. Meat, veggies, and perhaps some starch. That’s partly what makes it so effective and intuitive. As far as dietary lifestyles that call for making most of your food from scratch, the Primal Blueprint is one of the easier ones. As a red-blooded American, most of the recipes I post on MDA and publish in my books are “Primalized” versions of American cuisine. It’s only natural. So you Read more

Squats Twice in One Day?

Written by: Kevin Cann In conversation with Murph the other day, he had asked what the point of performing a competition lift or its variation twice in one day serves. Upon answering the question, I realized there was a lot to it and many people must have the same question with the popularity of Sheiko programs in powerlifting. Performing a competition lift twice in one day is a big component of a Sheiko program. Now, this article is 100% my Read more

Is the Paleo Diet Safe for Babies?

Image PaleoPlan-Blog-Header-300x169.png

It’s a big deal when a baby goes from only drinking formula or breastmilk to making the leap into the world of solid foods. It’s exciting, and also terrifying, for most parents — especially new parents. As a new parent myself, I thought that introducing solid foods would feel exciting, but when the time came to try some foods with my son, I felt more scared than anything else. Even as a nutritionist, I worried that I would do the wrong thing. It Read more

I’m always looking for comfortable shoes, especially ones I can workout in. But I also want them to be attractive so I can wear them while I’m running errands or walking Jackson. I pretty much want it all. *Begins singing I Want It All by Queen* Not long ago, I told you about a pair of Adidas shoes that were seriously like walking on clouds and many people emailed me thanking me about introducing them to that shoe because they were so Read more
