Free Summer Meal Plan

I’ve been more relaxed about meal planning this summer but this week felt like a good time to start again! Check out my free summer meal plan below! This summer has been amazing. I’m growing a lot of veggies in my backyard and getting fresh produce from the farmers market every week. I absolutely love summer. One of my favorite things to do is grill a bunch of fresh food for my family and hang out on our back deck. It’s just such an amazing season. Interestingly enough, I’m being a bit more lax about food lately. In the past I’ve been on very low carb, healing protocols due to gut issues. But I never really felt better. Now, I’m eating white rice if I want it. I’m not stressing over having a cookie with my son. And I’m not beating myself up over that extra glass of wine at…

Paleo + Gluten-Free Postpartum Freezer Meals

I am a planner. I love to plan just about everything in my life. Vacations, date nights, work days. I don’t know why I find planning so enjoyable. But I actually had a ton of fun planning these paleo + gluten-free postpartum freezer meals. I think it gives me a sense of calm. Like if I’m prepared, the postpartum newborn haze will be a lot easier. And honestly, it will be. When I had my first son unexpectedly, I came home to a fridge full of rotten food (we were in the hospital for two weeks!) and no food prepared ahead of time. I was in so much pain from the fibroid removal, emergency c-section AND vaginal birth (read about that HERE) that I could barely move. I had to sit at my kitchen island and give my husband instructions on how to make a lasagna. He is good at…

Meal Prep Monday

This week I made: cauliflower rice jap chae (recipe will be up tomorrow!) split pea soup in my crockpot hard boiled eggs Here’s how I did it: First, I got the soup going. I love my crockpot. I chopped an onion and celery and tossed ’em in. Then I added a bag of almost empty carrots and broccoli. I added the rest of my split peas, a bunch of bone broth and a ham hock. I popped the top on, turned it on high and got it out three hours later. It really was as simple as that. I pulled all the meat off the ham hock, which was a lot. You really don’t need specific recipes to make simple meals like this. Second, I made a ton of jap chae. It basically involves sauteeing a bunch of vegetables and steak and tossing it all with coconut aminos and sweet…

Paleo Carrot Cake

I am a terrible baker. I hate following directions and much prefer to do my own thing. Which is why I’m so in love with Simple Mills, a company that makes high quality, paleo, gluten-free baking mixes. This post isn’t sponsored by them, I just honestly love their stuff. Which is how I easily and quickly made this paleo carrot cake. Simple Mills is sold at a ton of grocers these days, mainly Whole Foods. Except, Whole Foods ain’t nicknamed Whole Paycheck for nothing. It’s expensive. Which is why I prefer to order Simple Mills products from Thrive Market. Again, not sponsored. I just like Simple Mills and I like Thrive Market! You can actually get 20% off your first three orders at Thrive Market by clicking here. 20%! That’s a lot! Think of how much paleo carrot cake you can make! So I used two boxes of Simple Mills…

Asian Stir Fry Veggies (Paleo, Low-Carb)

You guys. Let’s talk about the importance of veggies. They really should be at every meal, taking up about half of your plate. I’ve found that people have this idea that paleo is a meat-heavy, super low-carb, super high-fat diet that is very meat-centric, and that’s just not the case. I obviously recommend eating ancestally, and that means eating a variety of plant and animal foods that our great, great, great grandmothers would recognize. Wild seafood, pastured eggs, organic/grass-fed meats right along with a plethora of organic, preferably local and in-season veggies. It’s not hard. We really do over-complicate food. But it’s incredibly simple to eat well. Just eat real, whole, foods that your ancestors would actually recognize as food. Not Lean Pockets or 100 calorie snack packs. I’m talking meat, veggies, eggs, nuts, fruit, etc. REAL FOOD. Real food is the best food. And it’s the food that is…

Roasted Chicken and Veggies

Making a roasted chicken and veggies on Sundays has become a tradition. It’s something I do every Sunday to prepare for the week and it’s a great way to meal prep quickly and easily without having to make a shit ton of food. It’s also really nice to have a bit of a Sunday ritual. I pop this bad boy in the oven, clean the house, light a pumpkin spice candle (I’m embracing the basic, ya’ll) and go on a walk or out to brunch with my husband and son. All while this sucker is roasting away. It’s such an easy way to make a lot of healthy food. You can get SO many meals out of a roasted chicken. Take all the meat off and set it aside for the week. You guys – take my advice: make this chicken every week! One of the best things you can…

What I Ate + What I Wore

Most days, I wear yoga pants and a Lululemon top I found on sale and some Under Armour shoes (shoutout to Kevin Plank – we went to the same high school! Can I be a brand ambassador or something please?). But this day was rainy and ugly and I thought it’d be a good idea to dress a lil’ better and maybe I’d be in a better mood? Am I the only one that is super bummed when it’s rainy out? Pants are from Abercrombie because they’re the only brand of pants that fit me, sandals are Sam Edelman, top from Lush (Nordstrom) and I can’t remember where I got the long cardi but I love it. Phone case from Amazon. Messy room courtesy of my husband. I need a lot of food for breakfast or I’m hungry by 10am. I used to practice intermittent fasting (aka fasting from dinner…

WHAT I ATE IN A DAY + WHAT I WORE

Maybe because I’m generally a nosy person, I love seeing what people eat daily and wear everyday. A good what I ate in a day is something I’ll always check out and I love to follow ladies who post their daily outfits on Instagram. While I wouldn’t call myself particularly fashionable, I do like to wear cute clothes and throw on a lil’ makeup everyday to make myself presentable and put best self forward. So I decided I’m going to start sharing what I ate in a day + what I wore. Let’s get to it! For breakfast I had a smoothie made of carrots, grapefruit, a lil’ mango, hydrolyzed collagen and pineapple along with chicken sausage sauteed with yellow bell pepper, spinach and onion. I topped it with two eggs and some red pepper flakes. For a snack I had half an avocado topped with sea salt. THE BEST…
