Black-Eyed Pea Salad

When I first started this food blog, I started it with the intention of creating a Paleo-friendly blog. At that time I was big into Paleo eating but as the years went on (I was strick for 4.5 years) I really started to miss certain foods, beans being one of them.

FullSizeRender (19)

In celebration of my upcoming birthday, Cinco de Mayo, I’ve been channeling my love for taco’s the past few weeks. I could eat tacos every day and be O-K with that. Especially fresh fish tacos found in the Florida keys! 😉 I like to get creative with my food pairing and not always stick with the standard of ground beef, salsa, etc. This recipe contains quality beef, in-season carrots, a freshly made tomato salsa, fresh cilantro and slices of avocado.

Sweet Potato Chili


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 am no longer “Paleo” but educate clients and readers on how to create delicious meals from natural whole foods.

For so many years of my life I was that person that thought any carbohydrate beyond what was “allowed” on Paleo was bad for you. Being a nutritionist, I giggle at my old self now. In the cold months, I crave all things comfort foods, like most people do.  In the summer, I will grill all day every day, no problem. But grilling outside in freezing temperatures does not fancy me one bit.

Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins


Let me tell you how much I LOVE sweet potatoes. When I was a kid, I wasn’t the biggest fan but as I grew older and learned more about food, the importance of quality food, nutrition and sports nutrition, sweet potatoes became a staple in my every day.  What I love most about sweet potatoes, beyond their flavor and nutrient content, is all the different ways you can incorporate them into your diet!
