What is the Paleo diet

gluten-free cider donuts

Image gluten-free-cider-donuts-low.jpg

Creating a gluten-free cider donuts recipe has been on my to-do list for years now. I didn’t grow up with them, but Andy loved to eat them (the wheat kind) every fall when he was growing up in New York and Pennsylvania. When we moved to Maryland in 2000 he asked his new co-workers where he could buy cider donuts. Their reply (like mine) was, “What’s a cider donut?” (he was appalled). These are the first cider donuts Read more

Balsamic Instant Pot Roast Beef

Image Balsamic-Roast-Beef.jpg

Recipe perfection for me is any recipe that doesn’t require much hands-on time, uses inexpensive ingredients, and provides a sophisticated and amazing flavor that my whole family loves.  With this trifecta in place, you can easily see why this recipe for balsamic pressure cooker roast beef has become part of my normal rotation! This recipe takes an inexpensive cut of meat and gives it not only fantastic flavor but a tender texture akin to a Read more

The BRCA Balance Beam

Every six months or year, I go to the doctor to make sure I don't have cancer yet.Yet.This knowledge is a blessing, they tell you--it's a gift. And even on my worst days I have to agree. Knowing you have a gene mutation that gives you an increased risk of certain cancers really does hand you a lot of options in the way of hopefully not ever getting cancer. But then they take your blood and feel you everywhere and after you shake their hand and Read more

Lettuce and Leek Soup

Image img_31571.jpg

It’s been a couple months since my last soup post, so this one is long overdue. Soups are a vital part of my diet; they are versatile, easy to prepare, and a seamless way to integrate more homemade broth into my eating routine. Today’s lettuce soup is a nice change of pace, and a unique way to avoid the incessant crunching and chewing that comes from eating a plateful of lettuce. There are two main cuisines with a history of Read more

Paleo Instant Pot Kielbasa with Sauerkraut and Potatoes

Image instant_pot_kielbasa_pot_graphic_5.jpg

This recipe is a hearty real-food dinner, with minimal prep time. The potatoes are optional, you can skip them or swap them out for other root vegetables. Or simply add more sauerkraut. This is not a true dump-and- go recipe, we will actually be using the Instant Pot’s saute mode to sweat the potatoes and onions before adding the remaining ingredients and cooking on Steam mode for 10 minutes. You’re gonna have to peel and dice up a Read more

Make Your Own Coconut Cream Concentrate Recipe (Coconut Butter)

We have a special place in our hearts for Coconut Cream Concentrate – the creamy, coconutty product you get when you take dried coconut and puree it until smooth. Think of it as peanut butter or almond butter, but made from coconut. You may also know similar products as: Coconut Manna and Coconut Butter. We find the difference that sets apart Coconut Cream Concentrate from Coconut Butter is simply the looseness that is obtained by how Read more

The Benefits of Caloric Efficiency (and 10 Ways to Achieve It)

Image X-Benefits-of-Caloric-Efficiency-and-How-to-Acheive-It-in-line.jpg

We really like to eat. We choose restaurants based on portion size. We work out just to increase our capacity for guilt-free gluttony. And even when we don’t actually like it, we still want it because the food industry employs experts in brain hedonic processing to engineer food products your brain literally cannot stop craving. As Louis CK put it, we don’t stop eating when we’re full, we stop eating when we hate Read more

4 Tips for an Allergy Friendly Halloween

Image halloween.png

Halloween can be a tough time for kiddos with food allergies. It can feel isolating and seem totally unfair when everyone around you is happily swimming in piles of colorful Halloween candy, and you can’t eat a single bite of it! While there’s not much you can do about that, there are ways to help your child feel less excluded during the trick-or-treat season. Even if it doesn’t affect your immediate family, you should be aware of the growing Read more

The Promising Potential of Medical Marijuana

Image medical-cannabis-200x200.jpg

Marijuana is the term commonly used for the Cannabis sativa plant. (1) Despite being legal in 23 states and Washington, D.C., cannabis is still federally classified as a Schedule I drug, meaning that it has a high abuse potential and no medical use currently accepted by the U.S. government.

Korean Instant Pot Short Ribs

Image Korean-Short-Ribs-1024x683.jpg

Short ribs are a traditional cut of meat in Asian cooking. They’re cheap and, thanks to all that collagen and cartilage (the good stuff in bone broth!) they’re super nutritious as well! Before I went Paleo, I absolutely loved Korean short ribs. But since I know they’re often made with soy sauce and other questionable ingredients, I wanted to create my own recipe. Instead, I rely on fish sauce and coconut aminos to achieve that Read more
