God will work all things for good. And, if all I have left in the world is God, then I have everything
So I’m Cheap. I mean, pretty close to depression era “save your damp paper towels for another use” sort of cheap, but not that much. I do however, hate to spend more than $2.50 on munchie snacks. Like chips for example. They’re pretty cheap, and prior to my paleo/keto days, I would have totally plowed… Continue reading Paleo Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
So as a self proclaimed DIYer, the major problem that I have is lack of preparation. I will admit it. This shows up mostly in my constant refusal to wear gloves. I never have them on hand I they make me feel so restricted. So got my Rustoleum out today to stain the Large Frame… Continue reading 100 Uses for Coconut Oil + one more…
If you’ve been living a Paleo lifestyle for any amount of time, you know about the 80/20 rule: follow the parameters of Paleo living 80% of the time, and you can “cheat” 20% of the time. Now, when I say “cheat”, I don’t mean CHEAT (like with an entire pizza or a bowl of Fun… Continue reading Gluten Free/ Dairy Free Peanut Butter Cookies that I ate all at once.
Can we take a moment to thank Jesus for pork? I mean, that is why he came and died for our sins, right? For bacon. Before you get all offended by my sarcasm, I just want you to know that Jesus is up there right now, busting a gut, laughing “it’s true, it’s SO true.” He likes… Continue reading Unpretentious Pulled Pork – Ugly but good
I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about a current “trend” in self-denial called “Whole30”. I say “trend” because most of the time, trends tend to be quite popular but usually unhelpful. This is getting popular, but I think it might change my life. In 2008, I developed a weird, bizarre allergy to milk. Now,… Continue reading If you give a mouse a paleo cookie…. he’s gonna want a glass of coconut milk to go with it.
It has occurred to me, since moving to the Low country, that healthy cooking is not the norm. I’m sure the 76% obesity rate could have tipped me off, but no. It didn’t. Neither did the moldy produce at most grocery stores. Is nobody buying fruit??! Guess not. So. I had a nice convo with… Continue reading Skinnified Recipes anyone?
Sorry I haven’t gotten around to updating anyboday in a while. I made it 27 days without sugar and on the 27th day, I caved and had a key lime pie at my going away party. We have moved since then to Hilton Head Island, SC… and it is so hot. I can’t eat anything… Continue reading Update: I made it 27 days
It’s day 15 and I’m at my parent’s house for the 6th day. Let me show you what I’m up against: Yes, the tub of english toffee is nearly empty, but there is one in there taunting me. Yes. Those are giant marshmallows. And Yes. That’s a pint of Half Baked. Seriously!?? The reason… Continue reading Day 15: Self soothing and the stress bomb.
Since I can remember, I have been a sweetaholic. As a child, we had no rules about sweets. My mom was a sweetaholic too. We were poor and on a very tight budget, but the one thing we could afford for fun was food. Whenever we did something special, it was centered around food: and… Continue reading A little background on why I hate sugar
