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 […]

School’s Out- What Do I Feed These Kids???

When the kids are home, they want to eat ALL THE TIME.  Seriously, you’d think they were starving.  In reality I think it’s more boredom than anything.  We are limited in the amount of out and about time we can have since I run a childcare from my home and taking 16 kids on outings […]

Paleo, Pregnancy, Gallbladder, & Kidney Stones?

Seriously people.  I’m 25.5 weeks pregnant and something is going on.   At first glance, we thought I had a bladder infection so I went in for a quick UA.  The initial report was lots of blood, not much bacteria.  Huh. . . well, let’s start an antibiotic over the weekend while it goes off for […]

The Plan & Day 48

Really. . . today is day 48.  I’m a slacker.  I also haven’t done great budget wise (as in I didn’t keep track).  A new month is around the bend and I vow to pull my grocery money out and NOT use my debit card.  That way I have more accountability. I am getting better […]

Day 36

Today marks day 36 in our 100 Days of Real Food Challenge.  I missed my order for produce this week. . . UGH.  I forgot to get online until Sunday evening and the order had already closed.  Boo. In other news- tonight we enjoyed two Draper Free Range (hormone and antibiotic free) rotisserie chickens.  After […]

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. . […]

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, […]

100 Days of Real Food- Day 8

Mass ran long last night. . . on the way home we *almost* stopped at Chipotle to grab dinner.  Thankfully, I had left my purse at home and DH had also left his wallet at home. . . so, we saved $45 and I whipped up a dinner from what we had on hand: I […]

100 Days of Real Food- Day 3

For our parameters go here: 100 Days of Real Food on a Budget Last night for dinner, we enjoyed yumminess from our co-op produce box. . . My kids LOVE my “candied” beets.  I place a generous spoon of Kerrygold butter in the saucepan, add sliced beets and then top with Celtic sea salt.  I […]

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.  […]
