Trader Joe’s Tuesday: My Famous Paleo Curry Chicken Salad


Every day at about 3:00 p.m. I suddenly realize I’m starving. And I need food, NOW. And it needs to be a balanced combo-pack of Paleo goodness, which in my case means some protein, fat and carbs. A handful of nuts won’t cut it when I’m on the edge of low caloric meltdown. I stand […]

Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Paelo Diet Coconut Banana Cake!


Bananas, coconut, blueberries – oh my! Here’s my recipe for an easy, gluten free, dairy free, Paleo-style cake that hits the spot before or after exercise. And it’s great for breakfast, too. First off, you should know I hardly ever measure, so this turns out a little differently each time. And I’m using the Lite Coconut milk […]

The Mysterious Missing Nutella: a Costco Story


I had to go to Costco last week. We were out of toilet paper. For real. We were down to the six pack of State Farm branded mini tissues I snagged from my Eugene Half Marathon goodie bag, and put in the bathroom for emergencies (okay, seriously, they are good neighbors!) I couldn’t wait another day. […]

How Peanut M&M’s saved my life so I could see Johnny Depp


We aren’t buying snacks at the movie theater, I told the kids before we left for Pirates of the Caribbean. Too expensive, and we don’t need all that junk food. I hardly ever eat sugar any more, since I started the Paleo Diet, so we have less junk food in the house. Sometimes the kids get […]

My Trader Joe’s #Paleo Pick of the Week


It’s Trader Joe’s Tuesday! Every week I’ll profile a Paleo Diet friendly product I’m in love with, and maybe a recipe. Hey, it’s my blog, so I get to  make up the days! Maybe we’ll start a Costco Friday next. Think of the possibilities! So anyway. I’m totally into these Trader Joe’s chicken sausages. They’re a good […]

Mother’s Day Cookie Walk


When the kids were little, we started a Mother’s Day tradition called “The Cookie Walk.” We baked cookies together, invited the grandmothers over, and went for a walk or a hike. We’d stop every time someone thought we should, and eat a cookie. We pretended the walking erased the calories in a few dozen cookies […]

How I lost 25 pounds on the Paleo Diet, and my Trader Joe’s Product Pick of the Week


First of all, I’m not a nutritionist, or a trainer, or any sort of expert on how or what you should eat. You know that right? I have a degree in English. And one in Fine Arts. Just so we’re clear.

Lunch at Apple’s Cafeteria in Cupertino


I ate lunch at Apple last week when I was in Cupertino, on my way down to BlogHerBET, and I have the video to prove it. This is my review of Apple’s Cafeteria, and their employees. I got to meet Alejandro, the chef who makes the world famous KH Toast my friend Kristin invented. He has […]

How to Eat Paleo on Vacation


So, on day 4 of my personal Paleo diet challenge I took my teenage daughter shopping in Portland (a belated Christmas present, she has the patience of a saint!) and miraculously managed to stick to my eating plan despite mandatory trips to some great Italian restaurants. And, I didn’t feel deprived, at all. For real. […]

Going Paleo: Can I cut out the junk and eat real food?


I did it! I made it through my first day of The Paleo diet, and I didn’t die. I didn’t eat dairy (not even in my coffee!) or sugar or grain or drink any alcohol for a full 24 hours. I missed the alcohol most, because I do so enjoy a martini while I watch […]
