I Walk the Paleo Line


“Modern day primal living.” That pretty much sums up my lifestyle. I like to get back to basics while continuing to operate in an advanced world. In the last year I’ve adopted a (mostly) paleo way of living, which I get a lot of questions about. The paleo diet is based on the paleolithic era. […]

Tom Kha Gai (Thai Coconut Soup) is one of those recipes that requires a dedicated search through Whole Foods for all the specialty ingredients. A lot of people think that cooking creatively with fancy-named ethnic cuisine is expensive. It really just takes a few key fresh, flavorful ingredients and you can make an entire meal […]

18 Gluten-Free Meals to make with Spaghetti Sauce

best spaghetti sauce ever

When I was a kid, I thought spaghetti sauce only came out of a jar. Mom would always buy pre-made spaghetti sauce with heavy Italian seasoning. She’d often chop up mushrooms and vegetables and add her own flair but it maintained an unyieldingly strong, savory scent of fresh basil and thyme. To me, spaghetti sauce […]
