My Journey to Becoming Paleo

It all started almost two years ago when my boyfriend Matt and I moved to Vancouver, BC so I could go back to school. Within 1 month of moving into an apartment in Burnaby, I had developed a really bad rash around my eyes and on my cheeks, forehead, lip and arms. I also got […]

Raw Cacao Protein Balls

This started as one of those ‘how do I start using up all the food I have in my cupboards’ kind of situations. I had lots of cacao powder and Sunwarrior raw vegan protein powder, among other things. They are incredibly easy to make, and I found them best served frozen or chilled otherwise they […]

Paleo BBQ Portobello Mushroom Burger

I always hear of people using a portobello mushroom as a vegetarian burger patty. It only seems appropriate to try it as the bun with a beef burger! Paleo style. I also figured that adding homemade guacamole and nitrate free bacon would make it double awesome, and I was right. I’ll give the ingredients for […]

Paleo Chicken Bacon Soup

It feels like I haven’t posted for so long! Oh right, that is because I haven’t. I actually came up with this recipe a long time ago, and had posted it on my facebook page before I had a blog. I went back and tried it and figured, why not post it now? It’s delicious! […]

Paleo Steak Salad with Garlic Herb Dressing

Last week I was browsing the internet for paleo recipes and I came across a recipe for steak salad on the Health and Mojo website. I took some inspiration from this recipe and also made some changes and made it my own. The salad recipe makes one serving, but the sauce recipe makes enough for […]

Paleo B.L.T. Salad

Can you tell I like bacon? I make this recipe at least once a week. It is great as a main dish or a side dish! Ingredients: 4 cups organic field greens (or any lettuce/greens mix of your choice) 1 small tomato 1 ripe avocado 2 tbsp diced red onion 1/2 garlic clove, minced 6 […]

Paleo Mango Vanilla Smoothie

The key to this smoothies success is good quality vanilla extract. I used an all natural, organically grown vanilla straight out of Mexico! Ingredients: 1 banana 1 cup frozen mango 3 tbsp coconut milk (canned) 1 tbsp hemp hearts 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 cup filtered water Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and […]
