About a decade ago, I was introduced to the Paleo Diet. I remember when I first started learning the rules of that diet, I was having a hard time transitioning and creating my new “norm” with the food options. It was a journey but once I figured it out, I got super creative with ingredients and that lead me to the creation of this food blog.

I make this salad 5-6 days a week and can honestly say I never get sick of it. Sometimes I’ll even eat it with my lunch and dinner. No doubt am I a creature of habit but I just love all the nutrition in this bowl. On occasion, I’ll switch up the ingredients but usually these ingredients (listed below) are my staples. This salad is full of micronutrients as well as the best kind of medicine, herbal medicine, keeping my immune system thriving.

Fluffy Protein Pancakes

You’ll notice that a lot of recipes on my blog are pancakes.  That’s because I LOVE pancakes! When I was a kid, I was not a fan of lunch or dinner meals but I could eat breakfast all day, every day.  As an adult, I understand that I cannot do that, but that doesn’t mean my inner kid still wants to eat pancakes all day every day.
