SwissChard

In the summertime, one of my favorite backyard garden veggies is Swiss chard.  Not only is it delicious but it’s also beautiful to look at with its bright red stalks and dark green leaves.  Most of the time I sauté my greens with a little butter or olive oil, but it’s good to have a [...]

ZuchRibbons

Before I became Primal, pasta was a common factor in a lot of my meals.  I’m Italian and so I was raised with an abundance of the stuff.  It was difficult for me to let go.  After all, what would I serve my fabulous sauces over?  What about my fettuccini alfredo?  I realized that it [...]

TropicalParfait

It’s almost May and that means summer is right around the corner.  We live in Arizona and that means we sometimes hit triple digits before May.  This weekend we got a sneak peak of hot weather and some early pool time.  Playing in the water with my kids, soaking up the sun and listening to [...]

SugarNutrition_main_1221

We’ve all heard it before on the news, in magazines and from our doctors.  Sugar is bad for your health.  But do we really understand the extent of this statement?  When I have conversations with people about avoiding sugar, I’m often met with the assumption that cutting out the occasional soda or piece of cake [...]

SpinachDish

Spinach is one of my favorite vegetables because it is so versatile and delicious.  As a bonus, spinach is a super food that is packed full of vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, folate, calcium and protein.  I guess it’s no surprise that Popeye loved it so much…right? This simple dish only has four ingredients but [...]

Ok, first off, please forgive me for the expletives in the title of this video, but I just could not resist.  My personal trainer, Dustin, told me about this video at our last training session on Friday and I laughed so hard that I almost peed my pants.  Probably out of sheer embarrassment because I’ve [...]

CarrotSpicedPorkMeatballs

Who says you can’t eat meatballs on a primal/paleo diet?  Well guess what…now you can!  Ok, so they are not what you would consider traditional meatballs.  Trust me, I understand.  I grew up in an Italian family and these are definitely a little different.  But if you love Indian spices and that mellow hint of [...]
