Paleo Cauliflower Soup with Bacon and Chives

If you’ve ever been to Louisiana or maybe another Southern state, you know that the cold here is a different kind of cold. It’s not like Colorado where the air is dry and brisk. When it gets cold here, the air here is thick, wet and FREEZING. It feels like your insides are freezing, and there’s no other cure but soup and hot beverages. Which is why I made this delicious Paleo Cauliflower Soup last week.This Paleo Cauliflower Soup is perfect for the cold and so delicious.

My eating habits are quite… repetitive. Last week I ate this soup probably 5 out of 7 days, and each day it was just as delicious. Cauliflower soup may sound gross to you, but it really resembles a baked potato soup! Speaking of baked potatoes, I’ve been attempting to add back in some white potatoes in my life. Sooo, I will probably be making a Paleo-ish baked potato soup soon. Who’s excited? …

Testimonial Tuesday: Paleo Blogger Plaid and Paleo

I’m still learning what being healthy truly means. I’ve always been thin and fairly active. In high school, I pretty much ate what I wanted because I was working out three hours a day, seven days a week. Sometimes I would worry about my weight and order a salad doused in blue cheese dressing. I had no clue what eating healthy meant, and I wouldn’t learn for a very long time.

Plaid and Paleo In college, I tried to eat “healthy,” but pizza sounds better than salad. After my sophomore year, I decided to go on a low fat diet and work out 4 times a week. I counted every calorie and fat gram. I didn’t eat over 25 grams of fat a day, most of the time even less. I ate so much processed foods. The weight wasn’t coming off so I stepped it up and cut out all red meat and pork. Finally 13 pounds came off in a two week period. I was tinier than I had been in high school. I thought I looked good, but now I realize I was too thin and hit an unmanageable weight. I went back to college and slowly put the weight back on. I didn’t give real thought to my weight or eating healthy for four more years.

Paleo Vegetable Beef Soup

Mmm… I just love a good cup of soup to warm my insides during the winter. Cold weather makes me so happy and makes me excited for the Holiday season! It also makes me hide inside, play Christmas music way too early, and recipe test. That’s how this recipe was produced, Paleo Vegetable Beef Soup.This Paleo Vegetable Beef Soup is so delicious and easy to make!

I got excited to photograph this soup in my new gold rimmed bowl. This bowl was one of my favorite finds from a local thrift store. It was only $3 and so adorable! Unfortunately, soup never looks too appetizing in pictures, but I tried my best! This soup tastes deeeelicious. I also made enough soup to feed a family of 10…. and it was just for me. So I bagged it in gallon ziplocs and put it in the freezer for another cold weekend lunch/dinner!…

Gluten Free Caramel Apple Muffins

I’m not going to lie, when I say these are some of the best things I’ve ever eaten. A splurge FOR SURE, but these Gluten Free Caramel Apple Muffins are delicious! 

These Gluten Free Caramel Apple Muffins are to die for!

I always loved a good muffin. Years ago I ate those disgusting, processed Mini-Muffins on the regular. I’d give those mini-muffins a 1, and these muffins a 10 if I had to rate them. Speaking of scores, my life is totally focused on the MCAT and school. But as promised, I will continue blogging and giving you some of my favorite delicious recipes. Even though I’m studying, I still have to eat (wink, wink!). …

Paleo Sweet Potato Hash Browns

MMMM… fall is near and during fall I (heart) everything “fall-looking!”, like these amazing Paleo Sweet Potato Hash Browns.

Paleo Sweet Potato Hash BrownsI remember the days of Waffle House. Before I could drive, my dad would pick me up from a 2 hour ballet class, and dinner would be waffles and hash browns (with extra maple syrup, of course). I really missed those hash browns, and thought it was about time to make these Paleo Sweet Potato Hash Browns.
