How to Air Fry a Steak

Now that Liam has been mobile for 3+ months, constantly chasing a toddler has made making meals has been a tad more difficult. One night that the hubs was sick, I had thawed out steaks but didn’t have time to pan sear/finish in the oven because Liam was nonstop going for the dog bowls and…

Grass Fed Lamb Meatballs for Littles

Now that the little man has some choppers, it’s been exciting to watch him pick up food and actually eat it….like an actual human, ha. However, that also comes with its challenges. How do I introduce food to Liam that’s appealing, age appropriate, but nutrient dense?

Gluten-Free Paleo Biscuits and Gravy

I’m approaching the end of my nursing career (for right now at least), and being hungry all of the time because of the extra caloric requirement is NO JOKE.  I haven’t dropped a feeding until now. My body has been a machine since the day this kid was born. I have to drink a certain…

Gluten-Free and Egg-Free Paleo Sunbutter Cookies

Now that I’m 1.5 months into going back on AIP/elimination for Liam, his skin is 99% improved and his stomach issues are slowly getting better. For all of the doctors we’ve seen and told us to switch to formula or to accept his issues as normal, eff you. Changing your diet and lifestyle has a…

Creamy Green Paleo Smoothie

To say that the days fly by with an infant, a child no less, is a complete understatement. Everyday I wake up at 5am, I blink and it’s 6pm. My day starts and ends with feeding, burping, pumping, changing diapers, take the dogs out, calming down baby, repeat. Notice, no real significant breaks. Having a…

My Favorite Paleo and AIP Game Day Recipes

Out of all of the sports played, football and hockey are definitely my favorites. However, I LOVE going out or staying in and watching football, specifically my Patriots. Now that I permanently live with a Steelers fan, clearly there is a perpetual household rivalry. Luckily there’s something we agree on, delicious game day food.

Paleo Cauliflower Stuffing (AIP Friendly)

This isn’t the second year that the hubs and I “escaped” our normal family gathering. Although we would have LOVED to go back to Plymouth, MA like last year, we moved to Denver and flights aren’t exactly cheap. In an effort to remain healthy, I had been fiddling with ideas on how to make an AIP…

There’s No Place like Rome

Ugh what I would do to live in Italy. Although I’ve only visited twice, I’ve spent a good chunk of time there both times I’ve visited. As you can imagine, my favorite part of Italy is obviously the food. Don’t get me wrong, the sites are beautiful and the air is fresh AF, but the food is…

Sticky Orange Beef

Are you drooling yet? Well due to this weekend’s jet lag and major head cold, my goals for this weekend hit the dust. That also includes getting motivated to do some grocery shopping. The best I could do is whip up my meal prep for the week using most of my ingredients from the pantry…

AIP/Paleo Macarons

Between puppy issues and being overwhelmed at work –I’ve definitely been off the grid lately. However, one thing that I have been doing is eating. A lot. Sigh. When I’m stressed, I rarely ever resort to food, it’s the opposite. However, my body has been just craving anything and everything lately. So I’ve given in….
