Should Grains Be Included In The Paleo Diet? (& soaked porridge recipe)

“Going Paleo” means eliminating grains. ALL grains! – which can have a drastic effect on your body and blood sugar levels. Dense carbs, like grains, break down into simple sugars (glucose) in our digestive system. When over consumed, or consumed in the standard manner (through refined products), these types of carbs spike blood sugar levels, […]

Is The War On Fat Finally Over?

I woke up this morning to the Today Show FINALLY touting some good nutritional advice for a change, no thanks to Joy Bauer! Anyone who knows me knows I can’t stand her “nutritional guidance” which is pro-factory, pro-governmental dietary training, pro-latest fad and absolutely NO real conversations about how food is affecting us through this […]

Understanding FODMAPs

In the next months and years we will be hearing a LOT about FODMAPs and low FODMAP diets. Partly due to the recent gluten intolerance study (which I walk talk about in an upcoming post) and partly in due to an increasing number of people suffering from IBS.

Bacon Wrapped Figs

I sent a snapshot of these babies to Vaughan yesterday while he was at work. His response: “What is that?” Mine: “Who cares! They’re wrapped in bacon!” Don’t we feel that way about everything? I know I do. Especially if that something is sweet like figs. Salty and sweet just go together oh so nicely. […]

Summer Blackberry Salad

Vaughan and I just got back from Mexico and believe it or not I couldn’t wait to get back in the kitchen. We stayed at an all-inclusive and I have to be honest, not having to really think about dinner for a week was nice. The down side, (yes, there is a downside) is that […]
