The Paleo Approach Exciting News!

Hey everyone! The Paleo Mom (Dr. Sarah Ballantyne) has just announced a FABULOUS sale on her first book The Paleo Approach! This book is chock full of the science and reasoning behind the AIP. I have read this book several times, cover to cover and the depth and proof of the science behind EVERY dietary change recommended when following the AIP, is laid out beautifully! She helps us understand both how our bodies work, as well as how they react with different compounds found in food! Not only that, she goes through several lifestyle factors and explains how they all can affect autoimmunity in the body! This is a fabulous book for anyone who is curious behind the "whys" of clean eating!


The Paleo Approach is NOT only for people who have an autoimmune disease, and can help ANYONE understand the importance of what we eat and how it affects the body!

At the moment, The Paleo Approach is ON SALE on Amazon for only $14.02 (marked down from $39.95) and the amount of insight and help that it holds is worth every penny. If you have any interest, or know someone who might, hurry over to amazon and order, as the duration of the sale is unknown!

Summertime Pink Lemonade

Nothing screams summer vacation like homemade strawberry lemonade! With its pretty pink hue, and tart freshness, it is the PERFECT refreshment for any summer day! I mean look at it! Gorgeous! To get the deep color and delicious strawberry flavor, I simmer it over the stove and then chill it! The result is a truly fabulous pink lemonade!

Decadent "Chocolate Cake" Waffles

(AIP + egg and almond) Learn more about introducing new foods and find recipes that include other introductions here.


I can't think of a better way to start my summer break than with a large stack of waffles...that taste JUST like chocolate cake! Not to mention the fact that THESE waffles have ELEVEN different fruits and vegetables cram-packed inside! A perfect way to start your day! Thanks to the AMAZING new Collagen Veggie Blend that was recently launched by The Paleo Mom (Dr. Sarah Ballantyne), it is super easy to incorporate extra healthiness into our diets! This powder has several veggies such as kale,  broccoli, and carrots, as well as several antioxidant fruits like blueberry, cranberry, and strawberry! Not to mention the gut-healing collagen peptides! Thanks to the smart-thinking of The Paleo Mom, the powder isn't very sweet, which allows the consumer to sweeten it up to their own liking! This makes it perfect for adding to smoothies...or even something like a waffle! While one idea behind the easy-to-use blend is to have a quick and easy way to get more veggies, it also makes a great addition to pancakes or waffles, as they usually aren't too nutrient dense on their own.

Paleo Sandwich Bread (AIP + egg)

(AIP + egg) Learn more about introducing new foods and find recipes that include other introductions here.

Tomorrow we get to go on an adventure! We will be heading to Paso de Cortez, which is a super cool area between the active volcano and the group of mountains! We always have so much fun riding horses, hiking, and exploring the waterfalls! We spend much of the day there and it is always a good idea to pack a lunch! Usually we pack things like raw veggies (think carrots or cucumbers), fruit (like oranges and apples), and AIP meat sticks. However, this go 'round I kind of wanted a REAL picnic lunch. Something along the lines of a sandwich...or maybe some egg salad. So that is what I set out to accomplish...

Lookout world! These tweeny bars are going to take you back to a time in which you could actually eat TWIX! They are one of my proudest creations! These bars are somewhere between a twix candy bar and samoa cookies...let that sink in for a minute...sign me up! Even my dad who eats a fairly normal diet LOVED these and once he took a bite, he said "Kaley! Wow! Is this an original recipe?!"Yes sir, it was all this gal!

AIP Pear and Cranberry Jam

I walked into the kitchen this afternoon and wondered what I should make! Then it hit me like a ton of bricks...JAM!! All of a sudden I craved the warm, chunky, and tart goodness that comes with melting fruit into a pulp! There was no stopping me!

AIP Lemon Cream Pie

Yesterday I got the baking bug. I had been wanting to make a pie so I decided to go for it! Thank goodness I did! I was originally going to make a strawberry pie, but then I walked into the kitchen and a large bag of gorgeous lemons stared at me from the fruit basket. I gave in to their promise of a sweet and tangy dessert! I could't resist!
