Seared Scallops with Bacon, Pepper and Chimichurri Relish (Paleo!)

It is hot, hot… HOT these days. Thank goodness for a grill, because I will NOT be turning on my oven these days. I had off all last week! It started out as a 4th of July beach vacay with some fam/friends, and then ended as a staycation where I planned to clean, get up …

I woke up and thought to myself yesterday… is there a full moon soon? I’ve had the weirdest thing happen. Not weird, actually… just inconvenient. Some back-story that no one asked for… I really, really enjoy keeping my car clean. Well, the outside, anyway. My dad was meticulous about washing and keeping cars clean, as …

I spent a lot of time thinking today about, now that things are opening up, how quickly summer has been going by. I remember this time last year – I was admittedly too much of a scaredy-cat to *go* places that weren’t outside, and it just feels so good to have some normalcy again. I’ve …

Pecan, Walnut and Mushroom Tacos (Vegan, paleo!)

Two days in a row, lucky y’all! It’s Taco Tuesday and I couldn’t miss this opportunity to share another recipe. After talking about crystals and new moons, renewing energy and everything, I thought about how the world around us really impacts us. How we feel better when we’re outside, at the beach, in the mountains, …

Asian-Inspired Broccoli Cabbage Slaw (Paleo, Keto-Friendly, Vegan!)

I always say I’ll keep my momentum going with making posts and recipes to share, but often times I just get so busy that I completely forget. I love to make things, but in all honesty, a lot of what I make either doesn’t make the cut aesthetically, or I eat it before I even …

Roasted Cauliflower Leek Soup (paleo, with vegan option!)

I was really hoping by this point in the year that it would’ve been a little chillier. I’m ready to turn my A/C off…. But here we are. For my non-US friends…. What’s it like to not stress-eat and go about your merry day, this week? We’ve been on edge waiting for the results of …

Fall Harvest Salad with Parmesan, Cranberries and Pecans (Gluten-Free!)

Y’all it’s fall! And it was WINDY today! I’ve been hitting the gym pretty hard, so I’m not sure if that’s why I’m more hungry, or… if I am nearing hibernation. But I’ve needed to make some more heartier lunches and dinners…. So with a good protein, I’ve been enjoying some really good salads. It’s …

Lemon Dill Salmon Cakes with Cucumber Tzatziki Sauce (Gluten-Free with Paleo Option!)

Wowzer! I sure do go missing a lot. I have spurts of motivation, then I start working on something else, then I ……get sidetracked altogether, and here we are. One thing I’d like to update you all on – if you didn’t know before, now ya do – I do Reiki sessions, and other energetic …

The BEST Broccoli Salad (Vegan, with options!)

Hello my friends. It’s Thursday, which means it’s almost Friday, which means it’s time to party! By myself. Mars retrograde began yesterday – just another exciting moment for 2020. We all know that when Mercury is in retrograde, things go haywire, people act weird…. But Mars is a different breed, only going retrograde about every …

Thai Tofu Curry Over Rice (VEGAN with Paleo options!)

So, is it fall yet? When the weather turns, I love to make lots of warming fall recipes. While I probably won’t be going to many potlucks or bonfires this year, I still love to make lots of bowls… soups, broths, everything. Totally unrelated, I had an astrology reading last week. The woman was lovely …
