Pork, Apple & Chard Meatballs

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 20, 2019 at 3:34pm

So many meatballs, so little time. That could be the tagline for this blog. 😂 The reason I sing their praises often: meatballs are awesome. Straight off the pan, submerged in sauce or gravy, nestled into noodles (even the grain-free types), swiped through a snappy condiment, anchoring a bowl of soup, or rolled up in…

Easy Slow-Baked Ribs to Finish on the Grill (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 13, 2019 at 3:45pm

Photo by Cory Shubert I’m not going to lie: that’s one of my very favorite photos of myself, baha. Not many things I love more than cooking a pile o’meat, for friends, with a tan, in a sundress. The rib recipe pictured above is my old faithful standby. It’s technically not paleo and it’s not one…

Pasta Pesto Salad (Gluten-free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 6, 2019 at 6:57pm

Pasta salad? Not exactly paleo, but bear with me. I know many of you – even those who follow AIP – have reintroduced occasional gluten-free grains. I have! Small servings of rice or occasionally brown rice pasta are a nice change of pace. And really, is there anything more convenient to take to a party? I’ve…

This recipe is your new go-to chicken – with a bombtastic sauce – but this post is really about the plate. A couple of weeks ago, I visited my aunt Mary and uncle Bruce at their home on Green Lake, in Spicer, Minnesota. My dad and stepmom Susanna were there too, and the five of…

Caesar Salad Dressing Two Ways (Paleo, AIP, Whole30)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 23, 2019 at 3:59pm

Do you remember the first time you had Caesar salad? I do because CROUTONS, which as a kid I could eat by the pound. Fry me some bread and I was one happy child, so much so that I was willing to look past the cheese, eggs, and creamy dressing, all of which I loathed….

Chicken Soup with Kale, Sausage & Sweet Potatoes (Paleo, AIP, Whole30)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 16, 2019 at 12:41pm

Happy Mother’s Day! To celebrate, I invited my son Nathan and his girlfriend Samantha over for lunch. I decided to skip the typical heavy brunch fare and instead keep it pretty light. My dog Louis was visiting as well and I loved the idea of taking him for a walk, all of us together, after our…

Want to make healthy habits stick? Introducing Project Vibrancy Coaching!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 24, 2019 at 3:32pm

Do you get frustrated trying to make healthy habits stick? I do. It’s true! I think of myself as a relatively disciplined person, but I struggle just like anyone with sticking to many of the changes I name for myself, even though they’re important to me. Why? I’ve spent years examining and exploring the why, honestly. I’m…

Shrimp & Pork “Dumpling” Soup (Paleo, Primal, AIP, Whole30)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 9, 2019 at 3:17pm

Broth bosses! I have a few fresh new moves that I think you’ll really enjoy. It’s been shockingly cold in Minnesota – even for Minnesota – and when that happens, it’s either time to leave town or head for the kitchen. (Or a bath, but you don’t need a recipe for that. Or do you?…
