  • Paleo Fresh Spring Rolls

    The other day, I wanted fresh spring rolls. Badly. I also happened to be staring at the collard greens in the grocery store and this idea was born. I know you love quick and easy recipes, but I’ll be honest: this one is a bit more labor intensive because there read more…

    Paleo Noodle Bowl Recipe

    After a brief hiatus – traveling back to the States and returning to reality – I’m back with a tasty new recipe. This meal was inspired by 1) Patton Oswalt’s stand up comedy routine on KFC’s “eating my lunch in a single bowl”  and 2) every noodle dish that you read more…

It did happen to contain pesto (which traditionally read more…

    Fennel Tomato Salad

    The first time I ever smelled fennel, I was brought back to my 21st birthday and the shot of Sambucca I was tricked into drinking (black licorice in a glass…ew!). After I got over that initial response and tried it, I was won over by its delicate anise flavor and read more…

    Grass-Fed Sirloin with Kelp Noodle Stir-Fry
