Breakfast Grok Style

It’s summer time.  This means I have a lot of children in the house all day every day.  Kids want to eat constantly.  This gets challenging.  If we ate garbage food, I’d buy a giant box of goldfish crackers for them to munch on throughout the day and at least I wouldn’t go broke. . […]

Day 27 and Where Has my Budget Gone?

I’ve been busy. . . sorry for the silence around here. 🙂 I ordered 30 lbs of local, grassfed beef to the tune of $170 and it will arrive this Tuesday with my produce co-op.  Last week, I only spent $30 on produce ($25 co-op box + $5.00 needy donation). Here’s the haul minus a […]

Paleo Easter, Day 19

This weeks organic produce from the co-op.  I spent $60, which included a donation toward a family box for a co-op member that couldn’t afford a box this week.  I spent another $5.00 at pick up adding on more oranges. Remember that carrot craving I was having. . . well, I bought six pounds. . […]

Day 15, What’s up Doc?

I’m craving carrots.  Hence the title. 🙂  Too bad we finished off our TJ’s stash and the produce co-op doesn’t arrive until tomorrow. Darn this no extra shopping trips, thing! This weeks produce haul (once again all organic) cost $60.  $7.00 of that was directly to help with needy boxes, so our food was $53. […]

Paleo Treats

Tonight called for something sweet. . . I haven’t baked anything in about a month, I think my kids are feeling deprived!  So, tonight I made cookies.  Yum-o. I used Elana’s original recipe.  In it, she notes that Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour won’t work.  Well, that’s what I used because it’s what I had […]

Slacker Already

I’m turning into a slacker.  I could blame it on the babies.  I’m absolutely exhausted!  Or I could blame it on the fact that I’ve been too lax with our diets, because either I’m too nauseated to cook or nothing will settle on my belly.  I even made the kids oatmeal for dinner one night. […]

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 […]

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 […]
