Hello, fellow Paleo cult members! Grab your mug of frosty coconut milk and I’ll tell you a little story about my eats for the day.

My breakfast this morning included a couple green sliders, scrambled eggs, and sliced heirloom tomatoes.

Afterwards, I savored a few squares of 100% cacao dark chocolate. Okay, okay: I’ll admit to nibbling on dark chocolate all the time since I got my Chocosphere shipment on Saturday. But I won’t ever concede to having a problem ‘cause I don’t want to get help.

For lunch, I gobbled up a Portugese linguica from 4505 Meats along with sauteed spinach and more sliced heirloom tomatoes. 

In case you’re wondering, these mildly spicy smoked pork links are worth a trip out to San Francisco.

When the kids and I came home for the day, we were thrilled to find in our mailbox an advance copy of Bill and Hayley’s new cookbook, Make It Paleo!

Since my kids are recovering sugar fiends, they insisted on making Bill and Hayley’s fantastic chocolate cookies. Again.

Me: “Check this out! There are over 200 other recipes to choose from!”

Kids: “We don’t care! These are the best cookies EVER!”


I was super-duper lucky tonight because I didn’t have to lift a finger to make dinner. My good friend, Dr. HA came over to our house with her awesome kids, supper, AND a gift! Now, this is the way to get in good with me. Take notes, people.

Dr. HA fried up a batch of her scrumptious herb-flecked pork and beef meatballs…

…roasted heirloom tomatoes with garlic cloves and extra virgin olive oil…

…pan-seared spicy Padron peppers…

…and stir-fried spinach with garlic.

Here’s my dinner plate:

Sooooo yummy and satisfying!

In my humble opinion, there’s no better gift in the world than a homemade dinner. I take that back – an actual “F-bomb” that I can cradle in my hand just might rock my world more than a meal. Thanks for that, too, Dr. HA!
