One of my favorite words is “froth”, which is why I think I like this drink so much. Seriously.
Growing up, I had a kid’s cookbook with a recipe for iced vanilla milk. I made it multiple times, and my favorite part was the cold foam at the top of the drink when I poured it out of the blender. I randomly remembered this drink the other day, and wanted to re-create it with coconut milk.
This paleo-fied version is just as yummy and just as frothy! Try it on a hot day and you’ll be glad you did. 🙂 Read more
This post is somewhat my labor of love for you, and somewhat self-indulgent because I LOVE BREAKFAST!
Seriously, breakfast is the best. And if you’re eating a Paleo/whole food diet, you know that cereal or low-fat yogurt for breakfast just won’t cut it.
That being said, here are some GREAT Paleo breakfast recipes from around the web! Some of them are definitely in the treat category, but I think it’s important to have Paleo treat options for special occasions.
For those with an egg or FODMAP sensitivity, I’ve noted which recipes are egg-free or low-FODMAP. I’ve also specified which recipes are AIP-friendly.
I hope you enjoy this list – let me know what you try! Read more
Ahhh…coffee. Our beloved warm drink of choice is such a gray area! It seems like every week I see some flashy news article stating that drinking 2+ cups a day will either make you live forever or make you die sooner. Is it any wonder that this topic makes people throw their hands up in frustration?
Because seeing those unscientific, click-bait articles drives me crazy, I decided to list both sides to the coffee debate for you here! Read more

When switching to a more natural, un-processed way of eating, many people also start striving to clean up their makeup, cleaning products, bathroom products, etc.
The thing is, many of the more “natural” products are REALLY expensive, or may not actually be so natural after all. I love learning about new products and DIY recipes that offer quality, convenience, and a chance to save some money! I decided to list my TOP 10 favorite (and most often used) products and DIY recipes here!
Magnesium is a hot nutrition topic these days, particularly in the Paleo/whole food sphere. People are starting to realize that a deficiency in this crucial mineral might actually be more common than we thought!
But why the concern? For starters, magnesium is part of over 300 chemical reactions occurring in the body. Even ATP, the basic source of energy for cells, must be bound to a magnesium ion to be active. In other words, magnesium is absolutely essential for a functioning body. Read more
My coffee-loving started with frappuccinos from Starbucks. I know, I know – they don’t really count as coffee. But even after graduating to cappuccinos and lattes, I still have a love for the creamy-meets-icy drink!
Here’s my problem – coffee doesn’t seem to like me. I can have it in small amounts, and do better with decaf, but my favorite espresso drinks upset my digestive system and make me overly-wired and nervous. These symptoms seem to be much worse when I’m already in a stressful season of life or lack sleep. I needed a natural, caffeine-free alternative that would still give me the awesome mouth feel and flavor of coffee. Enter roasted dandelion root! Read more
