My Alimentary Adventure: Part I Recap (Detoxing Alone)

At the end of my first month of the detoxing process, I have come to the conclusion that it’s time to get some help. While professional assistance is something I programmed into my plan from day one, I have up to this point been mostly on my own. I can definitively say that, at least for me, detoxing alone has not been what I expected! A few snags I’ve hit include… Major  ...

My Alimentary Adventure: Preparation (Week 2 Wrap-up)

While the first seven days of this journey were all about getting into the swing of things, week two was about preparation. Sounds a little backwards? Let me explain… I have decided to jump headfirst into caring for my body. That means: new dietary discoveries, all kinds of testing, getting systematic with my exercise and eating habits, and above all else finding the best ways for me to  ...

My Alimentary Adventure: Day 7

Although I’m only a few days in, my body has already begun the process of detoxing. And while the end result, I know, will be me feeling fantastic, right now I just feel crummy. I’m going through weird swings of feeling wired then crashing. I’m hardly ever hungry (which is very unlike me). I’m thankfully not having painfully strong cravings, but that might be because  ...

Super-easy Paleo Alfredo

I chose to use a cashew-based sauce with zucchini noodles and pork loin, but there many different ways to tackle this dish. Different alfredo bases, like cauliflower or even reggiano cheese, will pair better with different noodles and meats. Sweet potato noodles could be delicious with ground lamb, or the lighter cauliflower-based alfredo may taste best with chicken or shrimp. Don’t be  ...

AIP Apple Spice Bread

Fall and winter are easily the most difficult times of the year to avoid grains and gluten. As someone who adores baking – for the smells and the flavor and the relaxation of it all – going AIP paleo has been rough. Bordering on impossible, really. My search for AIP baked goods (that actually taste and feel like baked goods) has been difficult and frustrating. Finally, I have  ...

AIP Shepherd’s Pie – Going Paleo Deliciously

Besides now having an excuse to eat bacon every day, going AIP paleo has been a bit of a stretch for me. Thankfully, learning how to tweak recipes is a personal hobby of mine. In the past, I’ve cooked meals that were vegetarian, pescatarian, vegan, gluten-free vegan, raw vegan, dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free – you name it! The thing I haven’t done so much? Cooked meat. So I started  ...

Pressing the Reset Button

Now and again, there comes a time when we just need to take a breather and hit the reset button on life. Frustrations mount, stresses build, and complications twist everything into a knotted, tangled mess. You can’t always walk away from your stressors – usually you can’t – but you can take a step back. You can take a moment to yourself and reenter the situation with a  ...

Waking Up: How I Took my Health into my Own Hands

For the past year, I’ve been tired. Exhausted, really. I’d sleep anywhere from 10-12 hours a night, but still walk around like a zombie all day and take frequent naps. I was miserable. But according to my doctors, nothing was wrong. Vitamin D levels? Normal with my daily supplements. B6 and B12? Fine. Thyroid? Enlarged, but showing no signs of hyper or hypothyroidism. So why was I so  ...
