What is the Paleo diet

The Green Bean Controversy and Pea-Gate

Image The-Paleo-Mom-The-Green-Bean-Controversy-and-Pea-Gate.jpg

Despite being relatively nutrient-dense and a good source of soluble fiber and resistant starch, legumes are not considered a part of the Paleo diet due to their content of a type of lectins called agglutinins as well as phytates, saponins and protease inhibitors (see Why Grains Are Bad–Part 1, Lectins and the Gut, Are all lectins bad? (and what are lectins, anyway?), How Do Grains, Legumes, and Dairy Cause a Leaky Gut? Resistant Starch: It’s Not Read more

OK, I’ll admit it, I’ve always been a bit lazy with keeping my windows and mirrors clean.

Quinoa Salad

Image Quinoa-Salad-800x533.jpg

We recently had a family dinner at my Aunt and Uncle’s house, and one of the dishes my Aunt served was a really fresh quinoa salad. I actually told her she should upload the recipe to the website, but I beat her to it! This recipe is slightly different than the recipe my Aunt made, so hopefully she still posts her recipe here as well! We’ve been including a good bit of gluten-free grains in our diets lately.

The other day I posted this photo on Instagram and had a couple people reach out to me with questions about how I pack for a trip, so I thought it'd be fun to do a blog post about it!

Cavemomma’s crazy Whole 30..I think I can…

 If you’ve been around the paleo-sphere, in or around Crossfit gyms, or just not hiding under a rock, you’ve probably at least heard of the “Whole 30”. Thirty days of squeaky clean paleoesqe eating that eliminates grains, dairy, sugar, alcohol (yep.) and processed food from your life for 30 days to reset and heal your body. Sound crazy? It can be.

Vietnamese Chicken and Cabbage Salad

Image img_1316.jpg

Summer’s heat is finally, lazily, starting to wane here in NW Florida; but it’s nowhere near stew season yet. And judging from recent reports, the rest of the US is experiencing some pretty hot weather, so you’re likely not ready to crank on the oven right now, either.

The last 7 weeks have been exhausting. Just a fact. Adjusting to a new schedule is hard. Especially when you liked the old one. The stress showed up in my complexion like never before, yuck! But, to look on the bright side, I'm halfway through my "fall" semester! So, needless to say, I'm ready for cooler weather because we didn't really do many summery things these past few weeks. The kids are back in school now. I have a little breather Read more

Image Confidence-2-final.jpg

When it comes to going Primal, there’s lots to enjoy. But on the way to success, it’s inevitable we’ll hit some dips in the road. Life intervenes, challenging our newly minted Primal routines. At some point or another, we’re bound to reach a confounding impasse and lose our mojo. When it happens, we’re presented with two choices: take it as an intractable character flaw (not recommended) or take it in stride, recognizing the Read more

Image iStock_73456375_-KatarzynaBialasiewicz-200x200.jpg

Most of us enjoy, if not even prefer, spending time with others rather than spending all of our free time in social isolation. Some studies even suggest that social connectivity plays a significant role in our overall health and well-being (1, 2). So what is it then that drives this preference to be with others, and similarly, what contributes to the social indifference or even social aversion seen in some neurologic disorders like autism Read more

Broccoli & Potato Salad

I want to start by thanking everyone who reached out to me to offer help and support after my newsletter last weekend. It meant so much to me.  One of you suggested GABA for my airplane panic attacks and I had totally forgotten to take mine. Thank you for that reminder! I’m also scheduled to talk to some professionals for more answers, so hopefully my airplane panic attacks won’t happen again. In the past couple days Snapchat fans, Read more
