Rushless Living

Our modern-day society is fueled by a constant desire to do more, and to do more, faster. We are inundated by articles, seminars, books and lectures about topics that embody this mentality such as time management, how to increase your productivity, how to create to-do lists and how to always be moving forward in your life. It is no wonder why we have trouble sitting still, relaxing and enjoying the present moment; we are constantly being advised not to delay,… Read more »

This recipe stemmed from a deep, persistent craving that lives within me for Thai food and curry. I was sitting around one evening, thinking to myself how badly I was craving coconut curry soup and also how much I wanted seafood, and failing at finding any restaurant in a 10-mile radius that would have anything remotely resembling what I was craving or able to eat while adhering to my AIP diet. So I did what any dedicated and Thai-crazy person… Read more »

dairy free paleo butternut squash soup

Boy, do I love Fall. I mean seriously, it’s the best season ever – pumpkins, soups, stews, beautiful leaves, 100 types of squash, cooler weather, sweatshirts, football . . . well, you get the picture. And this Fall is maybe the best one yet because I just had a life-changing surgery (I won’t go into all the details, but just know that it is a very good thing), my hometown baseball team is in the World Series for the first… Read more »

5 reasons to drink water

Ah, water . . . one of the most powerful elements on earth. It can take on three different states (liquid, solid, gas), has the power to heal, hydrate and destroy, covers about 70% of our planet and also makes up about 70% of our bodies (cool coincidence? I think so!). To celebrate this awesome element and highlight all the truly powerful ways water can help to nourish and benefit you from a health perspective, we’ve put together this infographic… Read more »

aip paleo roast chicken

I LOVE roasted chicken – I mean, to me it’s one of the most cost-efficient, protein-dense, versatile foods you can make. And – despite the fact that handling an  entire chicken can be intimidating at first – the secret is that it’s actually pretty easy to make! So not only is this recipe easy, but I think it makes for one helluva roast chicken – juicy, tender, flavorful, perfectly crispy skin…all the things an amazing roast chicken should have.      The trick is the… Read more »

autoimmune protocol beef stir fry

I love Chinese food. It’s just so warm and flavorful, and reminds me of some great times I had back in college (hangover cure, anyone?). Additionally, stir-fry is also one of my favorite dishes to make because it is easy – it’s so versatile that you can pretty much throw any sort of veggie and meat combination in there and you’ll have yourself an amazing meal in about 20 minutes. How is this possible, you ask? Well for me, it… Read more »

dairy free AIP pumpkin sage bacon cream sauce

Happy October, everyone! As the leaves start to turn and the weather gets colder, my body automatically craves heavier foods and rich flavors. A few years ago, before I went paleo and followed the AIP diet, I made this homemade ravioli that was to die for. It was filled with a delicious blend of pumpkin and sage, and was topped with a creamy, buttery sauce with hints of warm nutmeg and cinnamon. Ever since that dish, this time of year… Read more »

caveman thinking

Starting a new diet and lifestyle is not always easy – in fact, it can be pretty tough. I know that when I switched to paleo years ago, it was challenging for me – I didn’t know where to start, didn’t know what to eat, and was overwhelmed by all the new cooking and meal planning I had to do. So, in order to help you avoid some of the pitfalls I encountered when I first began, I have put together… Read more »

caveman money

I won’t lie to you – sometimes it is difficult to eat paleo on a budget. I mean, sometimes it’s hard to eat healthy in general on a budget, let alone paleo, which does place an emphasis on high-quality foods. Unfortunately in our country, it’s much cheaper (and convenient) to buy a package of ramen noodles, or some frozen dinners rather than to shop the “parameter” at a grocery store and spend the bulk of your budget on meats and… Read more »
