  So you’ve all seen the infa­mous smooth­ie bowl going around. They start­ed as a raw and veg­an craze, but it seems that EVERYBODY is now mak­ing them. At first, I wasn’t real­ly on board with the whole thing, par­tic­u­lar­ly  because I pre­fer to start my morn­ings with high pro­tein, fat, and veg­gie-filled meals for sus­tained ener­gy and nutri­tion through the day. That was until my best friend insist­ed that we go to this place Back­yard Bowls in San­ta Bar­bara where she lives. Big Mis­take! Those Read more […]

It’s mov­ing time! Which means I have a whole kitchen full of spices and food to clean out. I had lots of berries in the freez­er and I was han­ker­ing for a lit­tle Paleo treat last week just before I set out for Coachel­la. These Paleo muffins made the per­fect snack for break­fast and late night treats in our Palm Desert con­do for the week­end. I had pre­ma­ture­ly packed all of my muf­fin lin­ers so I had to make them with­out. I sprayed the pan with Trad­er Joe’s coconut oil spray, yet my muffins were Read more […]
