Strawberry Banana Ice Cream

Image SBIC01.jpg

Now that summer is peeking its sweaty head around the corner, I’m gonna share one of our family’s favorite ways to cool down from the inside out: Strawberry Banana Ice Cream—or as we fondly call it, “2x4” ice cream! Why do we call it “2x4” ice cream? Because it requires just two minutes and four ingredients to whip up. Plus, just like a 2x4, it’ll knock you out cold with its frosty fruitiness. Just remember to always remember to stock your Read more

Bacalhau à Gomes de Sá

Image img_4038.jpg

Bacalhau à Gomes de Sá is a traditional dish from Porto, in Northwest Portugal. As I’ve written in an earlier post using bacalhau, the Portuguese were one of the first European cultures to fish for cod, off the coast of Newfoundland after Columbus discovered the New World. Salted cod has been an integral part of Portuguese culture, and it’s often said that you can cook a new dish using bacalhau every day of the year – it’s Read more

Video: My UCSF Umami Talk

Hey, everyone! Earlier this year, I participated in the IHH-UCSF Symposium on The Paleo Approach. It was an honor speaking at my alma mater about all things umami and listening to the other eye-opening talks by folks I respect and admire. And now, all the talks are now available for free(!), and you can watch my presentation, “The Art of Science of the 5th Taste: Umami” below: If you want to catch the other presentations by Robb Wolf, Dr. Akil Read more

Spatchcocked Chicken with Herb Butter

Image aaaDSC_3857x-compressor.jpg

All too often, I find myself scrambling at the last minute to get dinner on the table. I know that some of you can’t relate—especially those of you who subscribe to a meal planning service (like my favorite one, Real Plans—a fantastic, customizable, all-in-one meal planning tool). You’re proactive. You have your crap together. You’re cool as a cucumber. Me? Not so much. My inherent contrariness and (ironically) my recipe testing duties get in Read more

Free Paleo Magazine subscription for YOU!

Image big-kev.jpg

Howdy folks! Just a quick on today as I am EXTREMELY busy! Not really. As you are probably aware, I am currently in transition mode from Australia to New Zealand. From Sydney to either Wanaka or Queenstown (yes, there has been a spanner thrown in the works). From "where is the space" to "where are the people". From hustle and bustle to "Aaahhh - now this is life". You get the picture. Yep, we SOURCE: Against the Read more

Importance of the Midfoot in the Squat

Written by: Kevin Cann I love the squat. This exercise to me is the single most important exercise one can do in their training program. Now, this does not mean that we should see everyone throw a bar on their back, sit down and stand up with it. The squat has many different variations whether we just use our bodyweight, a kettlebell for goblet squats, or front squats. A well coached squat is a corrective exercise. Someone comes in Read more

The World’s Easiest Cookies

Image cookies01-w1500.jpg

What?!? A cookie recipe on my site? Don’t worry—I promise this isn’t an early April Fool’s joke. Longtime readers know that they won’t find many Paleo desserts on my blog or in my cookbook or app. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the occasional sweet treat; I’m an admitted recovering sugar addict, after all. I’m just not a baker. I don’t have the patience or talent for it, and it’s probably for the best. I’d much rather tweak a cauliflower recipe Read more

Pressure Cooker Lemongrass + Coconut Chicken

Image aaaDSC_4894a-w1500.jpg

I’m currently on a mission to convert all my slow cooker recipes into pressure cooker ones—mostly ’cause the Instant Pot rocks my socks off. I know I sound like a broken record, but an electric pressure cooker is a life-changing kitchen appliance. Whenever I come home with no plan for supper (a regrettably frequent occurrence at Chez Nom Nom Paleo), I know I can toss a few ingredients into the Instant Pot and dinner will magically cook itself Read more

Think you’re training hard? Try this!

This week, my hubby and I moved to beautiful Wanaka, in the south island of New Zealand. Just to give you a little visual (and to entice you to come and visit), here is a pic that I took just the other morning: Wanaka. Day 1. Yes, that is snow that you see on the mountains. Yes, summer has only just finished. Yes, I am aware that New Zealand is known for being pretty bloody chilly in the SOURCE: Against the Grain Nutrition - Read entire Read more

Skillet Chicken & Mushrooms – Low Carb & Gluten Free

Image chixshroomsWMsquarefeatured.jpg

Chicken and Mushrooms are a classic pairing that just seems meant to be amiright?  I guess some of you mushroom haters would disagree – but otherwise I’m hoping the rest of you are still with me!     Growing up my brother hated mushrooms to an extreme degree, so my mom rarely cooked with them....

Death by high protein diet?

Image Ryan-gosling-protein-.jpg

Aah you’ve gotta love the media, right? They make things seem so interesting, so compelling, so……dramatic! If you haven’t come across the latest “news” (if you can call it that), this is a handful of some of the headlines that have been thrown about in reference to a recent study on the topic. “High protein diets make you look good,kill you” “Protein-packed diet nearly as bad as smoking” SOURCE: Against the Grain Nutrition - Read entire Read more

Is Intermittent Fasting For You?

Written by: Kevin Cann This is a question that I have received quite recently. There is quite a lot of contradictory information out there on the World Wide Web regarding this topic making it pretty confusing to those trying to take charge of their health and performance. The first step to figuring out if IF is for you is figuring out what your goals are. Most of the time when I ask this question to clients I get a response that goes something Read more

Should You Cheat On Your Diet? 3 Reasons Why Dietary Infidelity is a Good Thing

Image ThinkstockPhotos-160576234.jpg

Usually when people talk about “cheating” on their diet, they mean they had a cheat meal, or a cheat day, or they “went off the rails” completely at a party. Whether or not these are scheduled “cheats”, the underlying premise is that you’ve broken the rules or done something naughty. And whether or not you have guilt about that cheat depends on how much strictly you follow your diet, and why you did the “cheating” in the first place. But eating Read more

Chicken Teriyaki Bowls

Image img_2266.jpg

I’m the kind of guy who likes to grill in the winter. Well, let me rephrase that – so long as there isn’t a ton of snow on the ground, I like to grill in the winter. Living in Florida has its perks; we still have surprisingly cold weather here in the panhandle, but it rarely snows, and so I get to fire up my grill year-round. One of my favorite reasons to grill in the cold is that it creates contrasting experiences. Winter Read more

927 Days Later: My Top 10 Reasons Why Your “Top 10 Reasons I’m Not Paleo” Are Flawed

Image Pumpkin-Banana-Bread-e1420872135141.jpg

Is Paleo all it’s cracked up to be? It depends. The call for ditching Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) meat and instead opting to eat meat from local, sustainable, humanely raised animals is as legit and necessary as it’s ever been. But never eating dairy, grains and legumes because we haven’t evolved to eat these foods? Um, no. First of all, millions of us have evolved to eat these foods. I’ve come a long ways Read more
