Super Easy Greek Avocado Dip (Paleo, Vegan!)

July, woo! Heatwave, woo!! It doesn’t take much for me to whine about extreme weather. I don’t really like extreme  cold, I definitely don’t like extreme heat, and we’ve had some serious triple digit heat these last few days. BUT, I can’t really complain, because the sun has been shining and we’ve had some really …

So you’ve made the effort to eat more healthy foods, and you’re ready to shop. Where do you shop, and where do you start?

Red Wine Braised Short Ribs (Paleo!)

February… this has been an eventful month so far, and it’s almost half over which is just frightening. As of last week, we entered the era of the Yang Earth Dog, which refers to our placement in the Solar Chinese Zodiac calendar, and a lot is changing — we’re on the start of a complete …

Such a heart-warming time this last week, especially approaching Christmas.

Throw-Together Curry-Spiced Couscous (Vegan)

We had our first snowstorm this weekend, and it was kind of fun! I drove home, and it was nice to see the snow covering all of the trees. I think I’m ready for more snow after Christmas… I just need to get through the next three weeks so that I can get my shopping …

Mushroom Thyme Twice-Baked Potatoes (Vegan)

If you guys haven’t gotten the hint yet that I really love potatoes, you must not be paying a whole lot of attention. While white and yellow potatoes aren’t Paleo, they’re too important for me to give up… which is why I can’t eat a strict paleo diet. I try though… so, perhaps I can …

Best 2017 Holiday Gifts for the Healthy-Food, Natural-Beauty and Causeworthy-Clothing Junkies

Some might say I get a little excited when it comes to gift giving. When I was younger, I used to buy birthday and Christmas presents for people, and in typical Sarah fashion, I would do it months ahead of time. The problem with this was that I couldn’t wait to give them their gifts …
