So long 2016- Hello 2017!

What a year! A lot happened in 2016, both in the world and in my personal life. Good things and bad things, sad things and happy things. I wanted to give up MANY times but I didn’t. I’m sure a lot of you felt the same way, but honestly, that is what got me throughRead more

Paleo Chili Bowl

My Simple Superhero Paleo Chili is probably my go-to meal when I don’t have a lot of time or a lot of money to spend on groceries. It can feed The Mister and I for a few days and we can eat it a couple of different ways. The other day I had just enough forRead more

Brave

brave  adjective 1. possessing or exhibiting courage or courageous endurance. I’ve never thought of myself as a brave person. Most of my life I have lived in fear – fear of failure, fear of what others thought of me, fear of my past, and fear of the future. Those are just a few things thatRead more

My Life Is Over

My life is over. My beautiful wife, Leslie,  joined a CrossFit gym a little over a year ago, but that’s not why my life is over. I’m super happy, excited for, and proud of her. She has accomplished so many things in the past year that she never dreamed possible before. And her squats areRead more

Chicken Zoodle Soup

Soup weather is upon us! I love chicken noodle soup but since I’m trying not to have pasta too often AND I had a zucchini that needed to be used, I decided to make Chicken ZOODLE Soup! First, I have to tell you about this little gadget that I picked up at Target. It wasRead more

Paleo Chicken Salad

Today is Day 5 of being off of the 21 Day Superhero Challenge and I’m still feeling so good!  One of my favorite things about the challenge is the meal plans that Emily Schromm sends us. In the last three that I’ve done, I have tried at least one recipe from each one. I reallyRead more

Paleo Ranch Dressing

Making my own dressing for my salads has really been fun! I get to be creative with the spices I add and that makes everyone in my house happy- especially the Mister. We have this ongoing argument about some of the things I make us for meals. He says some things are not REAL foodRead more

Super Simple Paleo Mexi-Mayo

Since I’ve been doing the 21 Day Superhero Challenge, I have stepped up my game on reading the ingredients on common items that I buy. One of those things is mayonnaise, the other is ranch dressing. When I make homemade mayonnaise, I like to add LIME to my recipe. Most homemade mayo recipes call forRead more

How Do YOU Dip?

With football season here and get togethers around the corner to watch that pigskin fly across the field, I know that I am gonna have my fair share of chips and dips to be around. Over the past couple of years, I’ve learned that if I’m gonna eat healthy as often as possible, that meansRead more

Oh So Good Egg Salad

In my opinion, egg salad is a curious person’s meal. I mean, really, the first time I ever tried egg salad was because I was curious. I knew I liked eggs and mayo and mustard (sort of) so I tried it and I liked it, A LOT! I will tell you what I don’t likeRead more
