They have a lovely crunchy texture and a mild garlic flavor. They are great anywhere garlic would be, especially in salads, soups, and (the way that I generally use them) in this wonderful egg scramble! [read more]

We're back, with another dose of hearty comfort food, that fits very nicely into a low carb lifestyle!

Hello friends! Last week's conference was an opportunity to test our skill at frugal travel! As I have mentioned here before, we are artists and musicians, relying heavily on the gig economy for our incomes. A hotel room AND restaurant meals was a bit too "spendy" for us. We needed some travel-ready food for both …
Steak is definitely not off the menu here in the winter months – when the cold weather comes, I grab a few choice grass-fed cuts, my cast iron pan, and my jar of beef tallow and enjoy a simple and delicious meal of pan seared steaks with veggies and... [read more]
The weather report here is calling for our first possibly major winter storm of the season! We're busy today battening things down here, at our little cabin.

I remember missing bread-like foods when I was first getting started, so I thought that today might be a good time to share this recipe. These waffles are simple to make. They freeze well and you can thaw them quickly in the toaster. Start to finish, you can have a batch of these finished in 30 minutes! Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla and your favorite low carb sweetener for a sweet waffle, or a half cup of your favorite shredded cheese and a pinch of dried herbs for a more savory snack... (read more)

We've just returned to our cabin from a week-long, relaxing and fun camping retreat with a bunch of our music-loving friends! So much fun, and a great way to connect with nature, get some good quality face-to-face time, be creative, play music, enjoy the sun and then the glow of a campfire and music/stories against the darkness, and just let go of the stress and details of day to day life. These are all things that we have tried to become more mindful of – in addition to eating well – as we pursue better health...(read more)

One of my all-time favorite meals is Spaghetti Bolognese. Once we adopted the Paleo / Primal lifestyle (which advocates eliminating grains), one of our first challenges was to find a substitute for the pasta in this dish! We tried making zucchini noodles, or "zoodles", and have never looked back! Lightly sautéed for just a minute or two, …
