The Best 12 Paleo Kebab Recipes for Summer

I’ve been grilling all sorts of delicious things this summer (especially fruit inspired skewers) and there’s something amazingly primal about sitting outside, eating fruit caramelized on open fire.  That’s what summer is all about: hanging outside with friends and family grilling fresh, delicious food. For me this summer, grilling is all about paleo kebabs (…or skewers……

Brûléed Grapefruit (no sugar added) with Tossed Arugula

Sometime late last year we  had friends in town, so brunch was a must. I was trying to pick a place with healthier and lighter options and didn’t go with my traditional eggs and mimosas brunch spots.  I picked Crema Coffee House in Denver’s Rino neighborhood for its funky atmosphere and fun menu. Part of Crema’s draw…

Raise your hand if you ever made breakfast in bed for Mom on Mother’s Day! …Me. Me! I guess though, if we’re being honest, it wasn’t really me who made the breakfasts in bed. It was more me and bro making a huge mess in the kitchen while Dad made real breakfast in bed. At least…

Grain Free Bacon Spinach Quiche

What happens when you get 13 people staying in one house for a weekend? A lot of dishes. We’ve been known to host 11 additional people in our house at once! It can get kind of tight and a lot of air mattresses are involved, but it is AWESOME! The best thing to have on…

Creamy Avocado Cilantro Sauce

Everyone knows the struggle of finding a perfectly ripe avocado. Eat them too soon and they are hard as rock and devoid of flavor.  When you get that perfect avocado, there is nothing better than sprinkling it with a little salt and pepper and eating it straight out of the skin with a spoon. 🙂 This…
