Paleo Steak Tacos

I eat tacos at least twice a week. These paleo steak  tacos are one of my faves and it’s one I keep on repeat. At least a few times a week my husband will come home and say “What’s for dinner? Is it f*cking tacos again?!” Don’t worry – he’s just kidding. He loves tacos, even though he makes fun of the amount I consume. Do you guys remember a few years ago when the taco diet was a thing? People were losing weight just eating tacos from Taco Bell of all places? TACO BELL. GRADE D MEAT. Meat that’s mostly made up of soy. Total garbage. But I thought to myself, this is a diet I can get on board with. Tacos all day? Sign me up! I’m not sure how tacos originally got the reputation as being a less than healthy food, but they’re actually quite nutritious, especially…

Wrinkle Reducing Berry Smoothie

Despite the title, no, this is not a smoothie for your face. Although that doesn’t sound like a bad idea. I’ll have to try that. This smoothie actually works from the inside out to help reduce and even prevent wrinkles. Wondering how? COLLAGEN. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It makes up our skin, our hair, our nails, our joints, our cartilage, etc. At the age of 25, we produce less and less collagen. This is why we see more wrinkles, brittle bones, arthritis and less lustrous hair with age. One reason for both cellulite and stretch marks is a breakdown in connective tissue. Collagen helps our skin remain firm and elastic. Collagen helps the skin retain structural integrity. Remember that collagen is a protein, a protein that helps form the connective tissue of the skin. If it’s lacking or damaged, this will result in wrinkles (as well…

Broccoli Cheddar Mashed Yams

Let me set the scene for you. It’s like, a Wednesday night. We just put the baby down to sleep. I have a loose idea of what I want to make for dinner but it’s not complete. I’m leaning against the kitchen counter drinking tea (yep, still love hot tea in the summer – I balance it out with cold wine) and my husband is sitting at the kitchen island. “I’m making steak and green beans for dinner. What should I make with them?” I ask. “Mac and cheese.” “We don’t have mac and cheese. What else?” “MAC AND CHEESE.” “BABE, WE DON’T HAVE MAC AND CHEESE.” “FINE. Cheese then.” “Oh my God.” “I WANT CHEESE.” “We have potatoes?” I offer. “Okay. Cheesy potatoes.” “Cheese doesn’t go with potatoes.” Which actually isn’t true, I just didn’t feel like making something like scalloped potatoes. And I didn’t have all of the…

Meal Prep: Taco Salads

I’m tired. You guys – I am NOT the type to complain about my son. He’s awesome. He’s so much fun. But I’m going to be honest, he’s gotten up between 4-10 times in the night the past week and I’m just kind of tired. I KNOW babies wake in the night. We’re working on fixing this issue and it’s not a huge deal. But point being: holy hell am I glad I already meal prepped these taco salads. It’s so nice to just walk to my fridge, shake up one of these salads, pour it in a bowl and devour. Because it’s rill rill tasty. Honestly, they’re SO good. I didn’t use to love salads but that’s because I was doing them all wrong. Like most people, I loaded it with spinach or romaine and only a few other veggies like random tomatoes, some carrots and maybe some chicken.…

Butternut Squash Carbonara

I recently found pre-made butternut squash noodles at Whole Foods – which I highly recommend. It’s A LOT easier than spiralizing that sucker yourself, but it is also a bit more expensive. It was a total impulse by for me and also totally worth it because it was really effin’ good. I immediately thought making butternut squash carbonara would be amazing – and I was right.  My favorite veggies to spiralize: potato, white or Japanese (I can’t stand sweet potatoes) cucumber carrot zucchini – I actually don’t eat zucchini because it hurts my stomach but I hear they’re absolutely delicious when spiralized This is my favorite spiralizer. It’s easy and actually a bit cheaper than other popular options. Butternut squash is a wonderful substitution for pasta for several reasons. First, it’s a vegetable. Butternut squash is a great source of: potassium folate B6 fiber folate vitamin C manganese Second, most pasta…

Quick + Healthy Chicken Tacos

Sometimes I get an overwhelming desire for chicken tacos. It’s all consuming and they become all I can think about until I stuff my face with them. Case in point: last Friday I was doing my usual grocery shopping. Everett was asleep in his stroller and I was leisurely browsing in Whole Foods…because I love Whole Foods. I’m checking out a cheese melter thingy that I’ll never use and never buy because it’s thirty-seven dollars and I can melt my own cheese and…the taco craving hit. Hard. I quickly gathered the rest of the items on my grocery list and headed home. Except when I got there, the baby woke up. Which is okay, because he’s really cute and sometimes I think my heart will explode because I love him so much. So I fed him, impatiently. Silently imploring my kid to hurry the hell up so I could make…
