One of my favorite lunch spots that I’ve ever been to, is this place called Local’s in Fairhope, Alabama where I used to live. One of the first time’s I went there was with my mom when my she visited. I kept saying that I wanted to go but never found the time or opportunity. Don’t you love it when someone comes to visit and you get to explore your own town as if you’re a visitor too? It’s awesome. So now that I’ve… Read More
You know the feeling when you crave a specific type of food? It’s all consuming, the feeling of “I gotta have it RIGHT now,” sorta thing swarms you and suddenly you’re possessed by only wanting that one food or flavor. This was me recently. Craving like a mad person some sort of spice, curry-like dish that reminds me of when I used to enjoy Indian, Thai and Moroccan flavors like nobodies business. One of the key similarities in those foods is the spice, subtle in… Read More
The transition from winter into spring is here and we’re all anxious to celebrate! I think hunkering down with one last crazy cozy meal is just the way! I spent my weekend with a trip to the farmer’s market, some time in the sunshine but also a lot of time indoors, hunkering down working on projects and things I needed to get done. This meal was an easy one pan throw together that I knew would last me several meals. It’s warm spices take this… Read More
I am of the belief there’s nothing that cannot be combined, piled and squished into an acorn squash. Am I right? First of all, they are so darned cute! These petite squash have a ribbed silhouette that makes them a beautiful display. Serving them cut in half as a single portion is a great way to create what seems like a fancy meal, but takes little time and very few ingredients. If you make these and decide to keep them for meals throughout the week,… Read More
Confession: I’ve never liked chicken salad, ever. Really, the idea of the traditional version of mixing chicken with mayonnaise, boiled eggs, celery and sometimes even grapes offers no appealing factor to me. So it was something that I wasn’t going miss when I no longer used eggs regularly. However, I do like the idea of chicken salad. The portable way it’s thrown into lettuce cups and the accessibility of using leftover chicken that you have in the fridge. That is what inspired me to create… Read More
When I started following an autoimmune protocol lifestyle it took me a few weeks to get used to changes with my breakfast habits. I of course like many, had been used to eating eggs on a regular basis for breakfast and even though it was rare I did enjoy an occasional paleo baked good. On the other hand, I am not picky at all. I’ll try most anything and once I got into a groove, eating a protein, greens and grapefruit quickly became my morning… Read More
Stews are one of those meals that make you feel downright cozy. In the winter especially, holding a warm bowl full of nutritious broth and hearty vegetables is the meal-ticket to laying under a blanket and snuggling on a couch. After I eat a bowl of stew that’s pretty much what I want to do. I live in the Southeast where the weather can still be fairly warm in the winter time, but having grown up living in Belgium and later in Virginia, I… Read More
