  Sometimes when I cook, Tony will often say ” you know what would make this really good?” and I say “what?”, Tony then says: “lemon, mint and peppers”. So, today I share with you my mint pesto. I served it on chicken, but you could easily put it on lamb or pork, or use [...]

Pot o’curry!

chicken curry-001

  One pot makes things soooo much easier. I know I don’t have to tell you all. It’s really quite simple, all you need is a few minutes to chop, spice it up and let it go, then onto other business for the day.  Today I made curried chicken, actually, its cooking as I’m writing [...]

Breakfast Super Seeds!

This delightful little pile of mush is my new powerhouse go-to breakfast!  As some of you may know I recently found out I have a raging allergy to egg whites.  I was annoyingly breaking out with acne despite my “healthy” diet.  I’m happy to say cutting the eggs down to once or twice a week [...]

  Today I head up to Oregon to celebrate a very special birthday. My niece Emery is turning 3 years old and we are having a party. I’m excited to see her and the whole family.  The excitement has escalated as we chat on the phone often, and skype more regularly and we are only [...]

Cheating

paleo-brownie

This brownie tasted so good I thought I was cheating. It might be that I’ve been eating so clean that any dessert like thing is AMAZING, or it might be that they are really amazing. I swear they are a truly legit treat. Legit meaning no processed sugar, to be clear there is sugar in [...]

Call To Action!

PostMB

Dear Cheekers, Last weekend I was in a seminar and on the second day when some snacks were brought out everything was sugar.  Chocolate covered nuts, cookies, brownies…oh my.  I find it indignant that people think treats have to be sugary treats!  We need to cut this out people!  The nation is obese!  Morbidly obese! [...]

Egg-ceptionally Annoying.

Bacon Sandwich

As most of you guys know, I haven’t eaten much sugar in 2013.  As a matter of fact, I didn’t eat any sugar in all of January, so it was a little surprising (and a lot annoying) when I began to develop acne last month in February.  What?!  I’m eating my healthy little buns off, [...]

Two weeks ago when I went to my Whole Life Challenge Food Co-op, Laura had brought us some notmeal. It was amazing. I ate mine with eggs and was ready to replicate the next day. Laura’s notmeal was made with Acorn squash as the base and had the following ingredients that I’ve listed below.  Now [...]

Why Lefty Left All The Cabinets Open.

Baked Apples

I’ve been a little off this week because I’ve been so busy lately.  It started with not making my bed, then continued with not washing my dishes.  I left my clothes out instead of putting them away, and left the cabinets open instead of closing them.  Next thing you know I’ve only worked out once [...]

Playing with pancakes- Part 1

butternut squash cake

Yep, I’ve been playing with pancakes. I’ve done it a few times, and decided it’s time to share with you all. I’ve made the egg white and banana soufflé cakes and they were delicious, Thanks Michael!  But I wanted to change things up so I tried egg white and sweet potato, also good but it  didn’t [...]
