Changes. . .

This is how/why I can believe in evolution as a Catholic Christian. . . I’m constantly evolving and I’m convinced we aren’t the same humans as Adam & Eve.  Life happens.  Society happens.  Ideas arise and fall.  Life evolves. Right now, I’m going backward again.  For a while I was pretty strict purist Paleo- no […]

100 Days of Real Food- Day 10

I’m shopping with more clarity. . . that’s a nice feeling.  Also, I’m not running to the store every other day for more produce.  I’m liking this once a week co-op order. Look at that haul!  That’s $60 in organic produce.  I ordered the set box for $25 which included avocados, mini bells, Fuji apples, […]

Nummy Treats for Kids

My kids are getting bored with my snack response “fruit or veggies and protein”.  So, I’m trying to make them some special goodies here and there to keep things exciting.  I don’t want to be “that” mom who never gives her kids chocolate chip cookies. 🙂 So- I made chocolate chip cookies using Elana’s recipe.  […]

The End

Of the detox. 🙂  Officially today is the last day, but we are going off plan tonight as it’s Kelsey’s 8th birthday and she’s requested gluten free pizza.  Since Daddy Grok has been craving pizza like a mad man, we are going for it!  I have a feeling he will be sick tomorrow as he’s […]

Lunch Boxes & Pregnancy Update

Looks like we are carrying not one but THREE little beans in there. Wowsa.  Can you say pregnancy brain?  I’m also beyond exhausted. . . so forgive my slackness in posting. I’ll try to stay caught up. In our PlanetBox– we have a hard boiled egg, carrot sticks, applesauce, banana, and little balls of goodness […]

Sugar Detox Day 10 and Kids Treats

Breakfast was plain scrambled eggs (same ole). Lunch today-  Doesn’t that look DELICIOUS?!?!  It was.  The bottom is 2/3 of a “loaf” of quick bread from Paleo Indulgences.  I toasted it and topped with butter.  Then I added over medium eggs and sliced up a bit of hand made marinated cheese (spicy!).  In the end, […]

Lunch Box Ideas! Sugar Detox Day 8 Wrap Up

So, I’m already a slacker and didn’t post our Sugar Detox update for day 8 (yesterday)  oops.  Blame it on the pregnancy hormones making me so tired I barely made it through dinner.  Speaking of dinner, Daddy Grok’s parents and Grandma joined us for dinner.  Grandma lives 3 hours away and we haven’t seen her […]

Day 7 and Primal Pregnancy

We’ve successfully completed week one.  Two to go! Today we had leftover steak chopped up and scrambled with eggs.  Mama went a little Grok and ate a banana followed by cold steak (instead of the eggs, they didn’t sound good). For lunch we had leftovers, we had an accumulation of choices in the fridge. Dinner- […]
