Healing Green Broth | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

This is a different kind of post for me, although given the incredibly kind and deeply personal responses to my post describing why I’ve removed alcohol from my life, I thought I’d share some of my observations. Given my past, my age, and feeling seriously unwell for a few years, my focus has become creating the energy and…

Chicken Skewers with Chopped Arugula, Cucumber & Olives | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Hello from Boulder, Colorado. I’ve just arrived and I’m staying for at least a month. It was a rather last minute decision that had been brewing for awhile, if that makes sense.

Healing Green Broth | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

Around five years ago, I somehow fell into the company of a group of incredible women who were about to usher me through a massive life change. I didn’t know it, and they didn’t know it, but in retrospect I can see that the way we became fast friends was a rare and special thing,…

Tea Rhubarb Sour | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP, fauxtail)

So here’s a thing. I quit drinking alcohol again. I stopped for more than a year while I first followed the autoimmune protocol and observed four significant things: 1) I felt effing awesome. I slept great, I wrote better (which was good, because I was writing Twin Cities Chef’s Table at the time), my mood…

Spring has sprung and I couldn’t be happier!
