Women in Leadership Series today was a full debrief on the recent #wgea gender pay gap report! It was amazing to hear from and connect with some inspiring women leaders and to know that we are making some steps in the right direction. So excited about what is to come! #womeninleadership#ceda#equality
Banana Oat Bran Muffins - or as my 2 year old calls them, “nana cupcakes.” By making these muffins at home, they are higher in protein and fiber, and MUCH lower in sugar than the coffee shop variety. And if a 2 year old loves them ... ♥️ These have been a daily breakfast habit the past month. Love! http://www.vitamin-sunshine.com/healthy-banana-nut-muffins/
XMAS TIME || Are you already as excited as I am about Xmas coming closer? This is one of my favorite desserts. 🍉 xmas trees dipped in @pure_n_free. It's super easy 😎
Simply cut SoMe slices of watermelon into little triangles. With a knife make a little hole into the middle if the rind and stick a wooden popsicle stick in.
Spread the watermelons on the stick on a tasty coveted with parchment paper and put in the freezer for about 1-2 hours.
Combine 1 cup natural coconut yoghurt with 1 Tbs hulled tahini, a dash of cinnamon, cardamom and the zest of 1/2 an organic orange. Now dip the tops of the watermelon into the yoghurt mix (you might need the help of a little spoon for an even coverage) add some sprinkles.
Once all pieces are done, return to the freezer for another hours or until dessert time and enjoy 🎄🎄🎄
Late night snack stash. Breastfeeding leaves me hungry in the middle of the night, so I have been preparing in advance so I’m not rooting around in the dark kitchen trying to find something to eat. Tonight’s selections: lots of water,shine organics calm pouch, @thrivemkt mixed nuts, Trader Joe’s dried mango, local apples I dried in my @excaliburdehydrator , patience dried cranberries (the best!) and dried plums (also from @thrivemkt )...a couple pieces of lactation no-bake bars. I’ve been having family members mix up a batch when they come over and want to do something to help! I’m a bit heavy on the fruit. Any other suggestions??
Life has been CRAZY, y’all. 4/5 members of my household have been sick, including myself (cold AND mastitis), we threw a huge birthday party for my 4 year old twins, and I’ve been prepping like crazy for an awesome Thanksgiving at my mom’s. In a season like that, you just eat a lot of simple meals like this one: salmon and carrots roasted together at 400 (carrots for 10 minutes longer). Salmon is topped with leeks, parsley, and lemon juice; carrots seasoned with @primalpalate Breakfast Blend. #paleo#primal#grainfree#glutenfree#dairyfree#whole30#cleaneating#eatclean#easypeasy#jerf
Cabbage, Sausage, Potato Soup.
1 pound kielbasa sausage, sliced into bite-sized pieces
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 medium leeks, sliced into ⅛ inch rounds, white and pale green parts only
2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1 small green cabbage, chopped into bite-sized pieces
3 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 pound red potatoes, diced
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, homemade or store-bought
1 bay leaf
Kosher salt and freshly-cracked black pepper
DIRECTIONS: - Add sausage to a large stockpot and cook over medium-heat for 5-6 minutes, stirring and flipping occasionally, until the sausage is lightly browned. - Use a slotted spoon to transfer the sausage to a separate plate, and set aside. - Add the olive oil, leeks, carrots and celery to the pan, and stir to combine. Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add the cabbage and garlic, and sauté for 4 more minutes, stirring occasionally. - Add the stock, potatoes, Italian seasoning, bay leaf, cooked sausage, and stir to combine. Continue cooking until the soup reaches a simmer. Then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked and tender. - Taste and season with a few generous pinches of salt and black pepper as needed. - Serve warm.
What do you make with your Thanksgiving leftovers?
Already dreaming about it!
I make a kicking curried turkey pot pie any time I end up with lefrover turkey. Comfort food with a serious flavor update.
Google passthesushi and curried turkey pot pie for the full recipe.
I’m really sentimental about our family thanksgiving recipes and never wanted to make them “healthier”. But our traditional cranberry sauce (made from jello, canned cranberries and cream cheese) needed an upgrade to some fresh cranberries and real food ingredients. I found this recipe from wicked good kitchen last year and it was a hit, so it’s become our new tradition. Whole fresh cranberries, Granny Smith apple, fresh orange juice and zest, apple cider, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, sugar and grand marnier. Recipe modification-cut the sugar down half a cup and doubled the grand marnier.
Getting busy in the kitchen today, working through a glut of mangoes. This is the beginnings of a mango pickle, full of spicy goodness. Turmeric for its anti inflammatory properties, fennel seeds to support digestion and black seed (or nigella seed) is also anti inflammatory and to support blood glucose regulation. Can’t wait to boost our summer meals with this yumminess 💛🌞
Peanut Butter Fix- ⭐Our famous Organic Australian Peanuts are back in store !
🌿These peanuts come from the Legume family and are actually a seed. This seed is a fabulous source of protein and nutrients.
⭐Add a couple of teaspoons to a large celery stick or pop ontop of some Organic Sour Dough Bread found here on Saturday mornings.
⭐Sprinkle these Aussie Organic Peanuts ontop of your curry to tantalize your taste buds.
made this a few years ago but never posted about it: puréed beet soup with radish, frisée, and mushrooms • just planted a bunch of frisée at @springdalefarm and the beets are coming along nicely so excited to try and recreate this soon #eatallthecolors
On Thursdays we bake... CHOC BERRY MUFFINS. Into a bowl we chucked 1 cup buckwheat flour, 1/2 cup oat flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup melted coconut oil, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 cups frozen berries and 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips. Then we mixed together, spooned mixture into a 12 cup muffin tray and baked in a moderate oven for 20 mins.
Just because you are following an AIP diet, doesn’t mean you have to miss out on dessert over the holidays. It also doesn’t mean you have to count fruit as your dessert! 🤨😋 Give a big thank YOU to @adventuresinpartaking for coming up with a recipe that involves dates, maple syrup aaaaand—....wait for it...—bacon! 👅💥💦 Believe me (or not) the combo works! 🥓 Next time I’m going to use the same batter to make scones. It will be a perfect brekkie treat. Make sure to share because (a) why wouldn’t you want to show off this recipe!? & (b) sugar is inflammatory, so you don’t want to negate all of your hardwork while following AIP. Happy Thanksgiving-Eve friends! 💕 🦃 💕 #celiac#hashimotos#hypothyroidism#ibs#ibd#autoimmunedisease#guthealth#aip#aipdiet#paleo#whole30#glutenfree#jerf#fitfam#selfcare#selflove
Tomato soup was the easiest thing I could come up with for dinner - and it’s delicious! Made some autumn mash by @nomnompaleo in the instant pot for tomorrow along with sweet potato brownies by @paleomg, a batch of salad dressing and some mashed potatoes by @thepioneerwoman so tomorrow should hopefully be pretty easy! Now listening to the sweet sound of my husband vacuuming 😉 happy thanksgiving eve! #
I’m so excited to share that I’ve teamed up with @thr1ve to create the Steph Lowe bowl, your perfect LCHF choice for any time of the day. Head down to your local Thr1ve store and ask for avocado added for a brain, metabolism and satiety boost. #thenaturalnutritionist#LCHF#thr1ve#lookfeelperform#JERF
Thanksgiving dinner is ready to go. It was hard to do, but it had to be done. Turkey's whole life was for this single purpose: to nourish and bless our family and friends at a shared meal. It was a pleasure to have her around these past months, and we plan to incorporate turkey keeping into our farm again on a bigger scale.
30 pounds live weight, 22 pounds dressed. Or undressed, whichever way you want to look at it.
The last picture, are those itty-bitty eggs? Or just fat? I didn't find the male organs, so this was a female.
Guys. Gingerbread Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches. This is NOT a drill! 😍🍪Made my gingersnap cookies, filled them with @nadamoo That Snickerdodle Dough dairy free ice cream🍦.

Want to be a better ‘baller? 🍝
These meatballs are full-on shawarma spiced to the max. I paired them with a super fresh hemp seed pomegranate tabbouleh and zoodles to balance out the meaty spicy deliciousness of the ‘balls. Check out the shawarma spiced meatball recipe on the blog (link in profile!) and for all my ‘baller secrets with 5 easy tips for great paleo meatballs. 👩🏻🍳 Tabbouleh recipe coming next week! 🥗
It's Riberry (type of Lilly Pilly) season and there are so many ways to use these beautiful native fruit without destroying the nutrient profile or adding unhealthy ingredients. I just made (and ate) simple Lilly Pilly Chocolate and it was delicious!
1. Pick some ripe Riberry fruit (keep an eye out in your neighborhood or ask in local garden and community groups if anyone has some to spare), remove seeds, then dry in the oven on low heat or use a dehydrator
2. Double boil organic cocoa powder, coconut oil, and raw honey to melt and combine without overheating
3. Turn heat off and stir in dried fruit
4. Pour onto baking paper in a rectangle container, sprinkle fruit on top, then refrigerate to harden
5. Break apart and gobble it down before it melts!
Alternatively use a healthy made chocolate bar to melt down so it resets when cooled again and won't melt instantly like coconut oil chocolate does.

3 pics: 1- my first time back to outdoor running. Nice slow pace. Nothing crazy with this injury and first day wearing my new shoes. 2- my new Nike Free Run 2017's! They're so comfortable to walk in. We'll see how I feel about running in them in the morning. They make me feel like a chubby ninja! 😂🏃The dogs are burnin' and you know I had to flex on y'all! 💪Picked them up at Dillard's in Stockton 50% off! 🙌 3- I usually play upbeat music while I work out and I forgot I had Gary on my shuffle. When I finished my first mile and paused to stretch and get my breath under control that song came on just as the sun was going down. I can't think of a better song for that moment! It helped slow my heart rate too! Of course I was blastin' everything from Bad Brains to Run The Jewels 💎! LET'S GO!!! 🔥🔥🔥
I DID IT! 🙌🏻 // Adam asked me to make REAL cranberry sauce for our meal tomorrow... I’ve never made it before, so I was scared. 🤷🏻♀️ But I found a clean paleo recipe with only 3 ingredients and gave it a whirl. It was SOOO easy and the best part was that when Adam tasted it, he genuinely complimented the heck out of it! ❤️ Makes me think I should try more things that scare me! HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! 😘
