Whenever we go camping I spend the day before prepping like a fiend. Why? Because I want to eat well while we’re camping. And I don’t want to spend all of my time while camping prepping and cooking. 😉
I didn’t think this whole “being pregnant during summer” thing through. At least with Bugsy we were living on the moss side where summers were NOT so miserable. Here? Ugh. We’ve had the central air set up since mid-spring. So, I’ve been eating my hydrating favorites (cucumber and pineapple) and sipping on coconut water (blech). […]
This crab salad is a pregnant woman’s dream on warmer days. Well, it is for me at least! It has my two favorite “water foods”: cucumber and pineapple. It’s full of flavor. And let’s not forget the crab.

Ah, charcuterie. My favorite type of “batch-cooking”! Today, I’m sharing plenty of nutrient-dense, flavorful charcuterie recipes that happen to be in line with the paleo autoimmune protocol. In my mind, charcuterie ranges anywhere from homemade bacon, home smoked meats, delicious pâtés, and homemade sausages. Charcuterie also includes dressed up meat dishes like galantines, roulades, confit, […]
