Roasted Cherry Vanilla Yogurt Popsicles [Guest Post: Hungry by Nature]

Hi! I’m Ellie and I am the Paleo food blogger, recipe developer and photographer behind Hungry by Nature.  Growing up my mom used to buy those double popsicles and my sister and I would split them - each eating one half. My favorite was the red one... it was probably cherry flavored, but never the grape. Don't bring that purple popsicle near me!  Looking back on that, I cannot even imagine what was on that ingredient list - most likely high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors and flavors, and a whole lot of things that now make me run in the opposite direction. But for someone with a serious sweet tooth (haiii I'm Ellie and I have sweet tooth.), I am constantly making healthy swaps for my favorite treats.

BBQ Catfish + Cauliflower "Grits" [Guest Post: The Hungary Buddha]

Hi, I’m Chrissy from The Hungary Buddha and ironically I started my ‘round-the-globe blogging journey after I came back from my trip to Ireland because the food there is just so darn good (I mean, talk about farm to table!), and I can’t wait to hear what Katie thinks.  And while I don’t blog about or subscribe to any one particular way of eating, I do very much believe in unprocessed, whole ingredients because, let’s face it, they just taste better.  My motto is everything in moderation because I truly believe that my mind needs french fries as much as my body needs romaine lettuce.  So there’s that.

The Best Ever Grain Free Granola Bars

When we first found Paleo, which now feels like a century ago, we worked really hard to figure out how this lifestyle would work for us. I was working mostly from home so we were cooking virtually every single meal and snack there. As time passed, our lives got busier and I was dealing with a longer commute to work, we started taking more short cuts when it came to snacks and started purchasing Paleo-approved ones from the store.

Swap out the Soda for these Fun, Healthy Drinks!

The biggest bad habit I had to break when I adopted a healthier lifestyle was my addiction to diet soda. I consumed a disgusting amount daily and had some in my hand whether it was 7am or 10pm. When we decided to try a Paleo lifestyle, I knew breaking my addiction was going to be difficult, but I went all in. I cut off all soda cold turkey, one week before we started our new lifestyle. I figured that this would give me a week to get accustomed to drinking water and tea, but still allowed me a juice or sports if I really needed something different.  I had a week to drink anything else I wanted... and I didn't take it.

Sweet Potato Breakfast Stacks

I've realized that my favorite time to share new breakfast recipes with you guys is right before the weekend. Don't get me wrong. I love dishes that can be made ahead for the week so you can be lazy AF on early mornings, but nothing beats a weekend brunch. Sun shining, mimosa in hand and a big plate of savory food right in front of your face. Can you think of a better way to start your day?

Sticky Sweet Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts were never my thing before Paleo. I thought they tasted gross and smelled even worse. I realized that I was just never having them cooked to my liking. I also realized around that time that it is brussels as in plural, and not just brussel. So, fun fact there. Basically, I'm a burnt brussels sprout fan. The more charred, the better. That's how I like to eat them and I could basically do that 75x a week and say it's in the name of health and "eating more greens veggies." I decided that I should probably try and get a bit more creative with them so I don't get burnt out on my brussels.
