Chocolate Trail Mix Detox Cookies

Chocolate Trail Mix Detox Cookies

What do you call a ball of ingredients that’s packed with protein & healthy fat and missing the sweeteners that would make it a cookie? How do you tell people, “Warning, this cookie is not your typical cookie. Do not think this recipe will remind you of Toll House.”? I don’t know, no matter what I call this people are either going to complain...

TPV Podcast, Episode 21: Sugar Detox

Our twenty-first show! Ep. 21: Sugar Detox In this episode, Stacy and Sarah are both doing the 21 day sugar detox, so most of this episode centers around sugar and how it affects the body. They talk about their experiences giving up sugar this month and whether that has been difficult for them. Additionally, Stacy talks about her “No Spend” challenge and how...
No Spend & No Sugar – Week 1

No Spend & No Sugar – Week 1

Yowzer! Who would’ve thought there’d be such interest from you all in what I wasn’t even sure we should write about (since it’s not technically paleo)… our resolution to make January a No Spend month. I’ve gotten a disproportionate amount of requests to talk more about it – both on the blog and the podcast, so… here’s...
The Healthiest Ice Cream EVER

The Healthiest Ice Cream EVER

I hesitate to call this The Healthiest Ice Cream Ever, because maybe someone’s going to make kale and bone marrow ice cream. But, as much as I’d give it a whirl, I doubt it’d please your palate – and your kids – the way this version does. Seriously, my kids refused to stop licking the spoon when we were making it. And then begged for it...

Our 2013 Resolutions: Sugar Detox and No Spend Month

Our 2013 Resolutions: Sugar Detox and No Spend Month

It’s new year’s eve. 2013 is just hours away. And our family’s working on spending the last of our holiday vacation together, as well as talking about how we’d like to begin next year together. Cole, our 7 year old, asked each family member what their new years’ resolution was at this morning’s family brunch. Wesley (2yo) nodded in...
Thanksgiving Leftovers Brussels Sprouts Frittata

Thanksgiving Leftovers Brussels Sprouts Frittata

I don’t know about you, but my fridge is overflowing with leftovers from hosting Thanksgiving. Yesterday we had cold turkey meat dipped in mayo and a sweet potato biscuit on our way out the door to catch sales (p.s. thanks to Black Friday sales, Athleta is my new obsession). Since this morning was my family’s last day visiting I wanted to make a nice brunch....

Curry Fried Fish

Curry Fried Fish

Occasionally, I’ll get urgent texts at about midday. An emergency has occurred and I must respond! Choices by Shawn has their fish and chips this weekend! WE MUST GO! For those just tuning in, Choices by Shawn is a local restaurant that has a dedicated gluten-free kitchen and a well-labelled menu that we find very easy to navigate towards friendly choices. Weekly,...
Beef Bacon 50/50 Braunschweiger Burger Sliders

Beef Bacon 50/50 Braunschweiger Burger Sliders

Probably the most difficult task most paleo and ancestral health advocates advise you to do is to eat organ meats, particularly liver. Frankly, I just have a really hard time stomaching the preparation of organ meats. One time, I made this with both liver and kidneys and felt so nauseous afterwards that I couldn’t eat it, even though the rest of my family scarfed...
Caramelized Broth Brisket with Beef Jam

Caramelized Broth Brisket with Beef Jam

Please note, there are no process photos here. The reason is that I never expected this would be on the site. But never underestimate Stacy’s love of some slow cooked beef! For months now, Stacy has been acquiring beef briskets at a rapid pace. I think my freezer now contains four. Why, you ask?  Because of the nonstop hints that she’d like me to make the...
ZuSketti with Bacon & Roasted Tomatoes

ZuSketti with Bacon & Roasted Tomatoes

[Please note, this recipe was created for The Balanced Platter and made before Stacy eliminated nightshades. If you're following her WTF plan, simply make this recipe without the tomatoes and add avocado prior to serving] When I think of summer foods, I think of the colors. Pink  watermelons, violet blueberries, purple eggplant, orange cantaloupe, yellow squash, and, of...
Panang Beef Thai Curry

Panang Beef Thai Curry

My favorite Thai restaurant, Thai Basil, serves the greatest Panang Curry I’ve ever had. It’s slightly sweet, spicy, and full of flavor. I knew once we moved some thirty miles from Chantilly that I had to create it for home. I puzzled for years on how to do it, throwing complicated recipes around and ruining tons of perfectly good beef. Finally, I broke down...
Guest Post: Blackened Burgers

Guest Post: Blackened Burgers

A unique guest post this week! We haven’t been posting recipes for a while, so we enlisted the help of Dave Wendel, husband of Ann Wendel of Prana-PT. You may remember Ann from our vacation team where she was helpfully involved when we could not or from the fact she is now part of the Whole9Life Team. Without further preamble, have some delicious burgers! There are...
Buffalo in a Pig’s Blanket

Buffalo in a Pig’s Blanket

We’re extremely lucky. We happen to have two tenants that live in our basement who happen to be in no position to pay their agreed upon rent! How is this a good thing, you ask? Well, our favorite freeloaders are my younger brother and his girlfriend, both of whom are quite underemployed. They owe us big time as we enter the 14th month of no rent payments.  So, when...
Our Easter and Mint Lamb Meatballs

Our Easter and Mint Lamb Meatballs

Wow, what an amazing weekend we had. This post is uber-picture heavy, so I’ll keep the words to a minimum. Friday afternoon I left work early (yeah!) and the family headed out to Algonkian Regional Park. We stayed in a beautiful 4 bedroom cottage on the Potomac River’s edge. On our arrival, a family of deer greeted us! We stayed with friends (Sarah’s...
Rendering Suet into Tallow

Rendering Suet into Tallow

A few weeks back we visited Mt. Vernon Farms and, among the other goodies we got, picked up some grass-fed beef suet. Suet is essentially pure fat that is sometimes used in its natural form, but is usually used to render into tallow. We love to use tallow and lard in our cooking and making your own tallow from suet is incredibly affordable and easy. So easy, in fact,...
