So over the lest couple weeks of doing this whole Paleo thing, I've made an observation.. When I eat a decent breakfast (like 2 of these egg muffins), and have a salad for lunch I still feel ravenous throughout the day. However, eating 2 muffins... (more)

So, I have this salsa recipe that is the bee's knees. Like for reals. It's fermented, so it's full of probiotics, and it keeps for a long time (but usually not too long, cause we gobble it up). Since I'm doing this Paleo thing, what are good ways... (more)
