Has Obesity Research Failed?

I frequently encounter the argument that obesity research has failed because it hasn't stopped the global increase in obesity rates.  According to this argument, we need to re-think our approach to obesity research because the current approach just isn't working. Grant funding for obesity research keeps increasing in the US, and the prevalence of obesity also keeps increasing*.  What gives?  Maybe if we just scrapped the whole endeavor Read more

Cultivating the Well-Adjusted Male

Image on4f7cjumvupbuq54qpn-fojpnmog5maqx3jogax18o.jpg

As many of you probably know if you read more responsible Paleo bloggers than me, Paleo f(x) went down last week, April 11-13, in Austin, Texas. It was the usual amazing hoopla, with friends, food, and fun. This was my fourth Paleo gathering, so I won’t retread all the ins-and-outs, but suffice to say, if you haven’t come to meet your tribe, then you’re not really living. Panelists from left: Ryan, Wolf, Smith, Max, Durant, Read more

Unlike most, however, Joshua decided that he wasn't going to let others dictate who he was, he would make a change. Even though he was only 15 at the time he realized that real food, rather than processed diet food, was the key to turning his life around. Getting into the kitchen, getting his hands dirty, Read more

Beyond Bacon: Paleo Recipes that Respect the Whole Hog

Beyond Bacon pays homage to the humble hog by teaching you how to make more than a hundred recipes featuring cuts from the entire animal. While bacon might be the most popular part of the pig for those following the paleo diet, there is a plethora of other delicious and nutrient dense cuts to enjoy. Pastured pork is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), the "good fats" our doctors want us to eat - not to mention high in Read more

Been There, Done That…No Resolutions Here

Image 306

So it has been some time since my last blog, and I apologize for that. I was heavily involved in a program to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner which I successfully completed. Many have asked when I was going to start up again – so here it is. I must admit that this blog was one that I wrote last year that was published in Today’s Charlotte Woman magazine. I wanted to share it again this year since many were not able to read Read more

Practical Paleo: A Customized Approach to Health and a Whole-Foods Lifestyle

Our great-grandmothers didn't need nutrition lessons—then again, they weren't forced to wade through aisle after aisle of packaged foods touting outlandish health claims and confusing marketing jargon. Over the last few decades, we've forgotten what "real food" is—and we're left desperately seeking foods that will truly nourish our bodies. We're disillusioned with the "conventional wisdom" for good reason—it's gotten us nowhere.Achieving optimal Read more

Recipe: Plantain Protein Muffins

Image IMG_5041-1024x682.jpg

I almost never bake, so the fact that I baked something from scratch is pretty awesome. And what’s more awesome is that these muffins are not only gluten- and grain-free, but they’re also nut-free, coconut-free and even flourless. I’m not kidding! I found a recipe for basic Paleo muffins from The Paleo Mom while I was developing a meal plan for a client, and thought they’d be a really great recipe to try out since I Read more

The End

Dear Friends, It’s been seven years since I started this blog. I started as a young mother who needed an outlet – a community. And I found it. Then when I found my current lifestyle, it transformed into a food blogging/Paleo/CrossFit/Gluten-Free/Family hybrid blog. It’s opened doors for me – professionally and personally – and for that I am grateful. But last week, the day a monster took a score of babies from their Read more

Workshop Atlanta: A Story In Photos

Image hr_brown1.png

Ask any self-taught food bloggers — including Dave and I — how they learned the basics of food photography, and they’re likely to say the book Plate to Pixel by photographer Helen Dujardin. Last weekend, Dave and I took off to Atlanta, Georgia for an intensive food photography weekend with Helene and two of her colleagues. Our instructors were Mindi Shapiro (prop styling),  Tami Hardeman (food styling), and Helene. With Dave heading to grad Read more

I’m in love with Portland. There I said it. This is one of the cutest cities I’ve ever been to and I’ve only been here for about 14 hours, 8 of which I was sleeping. It is a food heaven, super green, really happy town. I sound like a total hippy right now, but I don’t care. It’s amazing. I want to come back here, go boating and rent a house for a couple months. That’s seriously a new goal of mine. And it Read more
