What To Expect When Getting A Kitten

There is a lot to consider when getting a new kitten, or as I like to say, a new member of the family. Kittens are pretty much smaller versions of cats but with lots more energy. The best comparison would be a toddler compared to a teenager, which parents can certainly relate to. A kitten, like a toddler, is very playful, loves attention and gets into everything. Adult cats, on the other hand, behave more […]

Five Easy Paleo Summer Breakfasts

We know the cardinal rule: “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. After a night of sleep, when the body rests for hours, breakfast is needed to jump start your metabolism which helps you get energized and burn calories throughout the day. In addition, for all people, especially diabetics, skipping breakfast is associated with an increase in blood sugar that puts undue stress on the body.  Breakfast is needed to regulate these blood […]

Pile High Paleo Lasagna…Loaded with veggies and “cheese”.

Imagine eating lasagna that could be made dairy free, vegan, grain free, gluten free, refined sugar free, loaded with health benefits and actually DELICIOUS? That sounds impossible. But it is possible and it exists! Don’t give up on your favorite comfort food dishes just because you decided to eat clean and Paleo.

The Great Purge

You’ve decided to change your life for the better and follow the Paleo/Clean Eating diet.  So now what? How do we get started? People perform “closet cleanses” all the time. It is a way to reset, refresh and weed out unwanted clothes so that you can start with a clean slate.  Let’s reset and refresh your kitchen, a “kitchen cleanse”, to get rid of food that does not conform to the Paleo diet. Grab a […]

Making Paleo Lemonade out of Lemons

Embrace the setback and embark on the journey…  I was 29 years old when I became pregnant with my first daughter. I was excited to bring a new life into this world. Around 6 months into the pregnancy and close to 60 lbs of added weight, I failed the screening glucose test. The nurse saw my disappointment and she told me that sometimes the test is inaccurate and I was sent for the 3 hour […]

Introducing Cats To Our Toddler

We just celebrated our son Bryan’s 2nd birthday last month and looking back it’s great to see how close he has become with our two cats, Axl and Slash. We were anxious how they were going to all get along and feel about each other. Axl and Slash were adopted separately from the same shelter. I got Axl when he was a kitten and Slash when he was a year old, and when we had […]

No Bake, Paleo Sweet n Salty Frozzzzen Snickers

Enough said. Yes, you can be Paleo and still eat junk food…but without the junk. What’s better than that? If you look at an actual Snickers bar, the very first ingredient is refined SUGAR, which means that there is a lot of it. There are 27 grams of it, to be exact. This is the equivalent of seven teaspoons. That’s the amount that the American Heart Association says that an adult should eat for a […]

Should I Try Out Yoga? 

Five thousand years ago in a spiritual book called the “Bhagavad Gita,” there was mention of the word “Yoga.” Yoga literally means “union” in Sanskrit. The union of the mass consciousness and the union of the body with itself. Over the years, gurus and teachers alike who understood the spiritual elements as well as the anatomical benefits of yoga have created many different forms of yoga. There are a few different types of yoga in […]

Getting My First Tattoo

I’ll never forget the day I decided to get my first tattoo. I’d always been excited to have one, as I view them as wearable art on your body and a form of individual expression. I was so excited and knew exactly what I wanted in terms of the design and colors. I knew I wanted to go bold and have a large, bright-colored tattoo on my upper right arm. Then of course reality set […]
