Dark chocolate, dried cranberries and macadamia nut are a good source of clean energy
Coaching my son’s little league team is a hoot. Technically, I am assistant coach. Make that “more than” technically; I am definitely assistant coach. Pete (my friend Blair’s husband) is head coach and he is fantastic. All fun, yet full of discipline and focus. It is so great to see how he hustles twelve little 9 year olds around the field, keeping them ... read more →

Inspiration struck today. As did its friend creativity. The sun was bright for the third day in a row over here in Colorado and my faith in all things good returned. Whatever had a hold of me –seasonal affect disorder, Mercury in retrograde, who knows, who cares –it’s gone! I took a long slow walk and saw the last patches of melting snow, flowers popping up through mud and upon arriving home, I observed sap running down the maples in ... read more →

For the past few months, I have been playing around with power bar recipes. When I’m on the go, I want to grab something that is packed with nutrition, not too sweet and plenty tasty.

I love the season of late fall, just before the winter solstice. The days get super short –well, I don’t love that. Nevertheless, I enjoy the chill in the air and seeing the mountains covered in snow.
For me, cold weather is merely a great excuse to stay home and bake, and this time of year, I especially like to serve warm homemade applesauce. I peel apples and bake them in the oven. The house smells amazing and when it’s Hanukkah, ... read more →

Here’s how to tango with a mango
Mango, a wonderfully rich, sweet treat, full of nutritious prebiotic dietary fiber and antioxidants, is the perfect Paleo dessert.
Here’s how to cut a mango, because as the weather warms, I follow suit and warm weather fruits make their way into my shopping cart. Today I found gorgeous yellow mangos. I bought one and when I arrived home did the mango tango –a dance of slicing this slippery fruit.

This kid friendly snack is as healthy as it gets. Just don’t tell your children it’s also Paleo/primal fare.
It’s a vegetable revolution! They’re back. Vegetables, that is. They never really left, actually. Sometimes we just forget about them.

This high protein snack is made by SeaBear from wild salmon. It has great flavor and a very chewy texture. Comes in convenient pouches.
Expensive, but I think this high quality, nutritious food is worth it.
I keep it in the glove of my car for afternoons when I need a good hit of protein.
UPDATE: SeaBear Salmon Jerky now contains corn syrup solids.
