What’s for breakfast? Pt. 2

What’s my favorite food? Eggs. What do I always have for breakfast? Eggs. This morning I decided to scramble up 3 eggs with the rest of the roasted veggies I had from dinner last night: sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts and kale. Topped it with goat cheese, added a side of avocado and BOOM — I have myself a delicious meal.

I generally don’t follow recipes because I’m ALWAYS short on time. I don’t let that stop me though from cooking up something fantastic. A lot of people like to make cooking complicated but it doesn’t have to be! When I do follow recipes though I love to follow Stupid Easy Paleo‘s. I think the name explains it all. ­čÖé And her recipes are awesomeee, so you should probably check them out!

I’m not sure about where you live, but last night we (in the Boston area) got a huge blizzard, so it’s time for me to shovel. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Green Apple & Coconut 2-Bite Treats!

21DSD Treat

This is seriously the best thing I’ve ever made. It’s healthy, doesn’t have sugar & I made it in 10 minutes. Oh, and I actually LIKE it. You know when you sometimes try to make something “healthy” or “paleo” and it turns out completely disgusting? Yeah, well this one isn’t like that which is awesome. So, basically what I’m trying to say is that you should make them…now. Or maybe tomorrow. How about as soon as possible? Kgreat.

You can find the recipe here: http://paleomg.com/21dsd-green-apple-and-coconut-treats/

Enjoy!

Kale/Goat Cheese Omelet

I can never have enough eggs. EVER. So, when I got home from work late tonight with nothing prepped in the fridge, eggs were the obvious choice. I decided to add some kale to the mix and then sprinkled goat cheese on top. I folded it in half and BAM! It’s now an omelet…and I didn’t even mean to get fancy.

The title of this post is inspired by the hilarious and all-around awesome Liz Wolfe of Cave Girl Eats. I just made us sound like besties, didn’t I? Well, after listening to her and Diane from Balanced Bites on their weekly podcast, it’s hard not to see (or hear) how great they are. (If you all want to learn more about paleo in a fun way, their podcast is the way to go.) Anyway, Liz’s first book Eat the Yolks is coming out soon and you should all probably pre-order it. I’m sure I will do a review when it comes out. I cannot wait to read it!

Hello there.

This blog has been a long time coming and I’m finally getting the courage to write my first post. It’s not like blogging is scary, but putting myself out there sure is!

I have been a personal trainer for almost two years now and an athlete long before that. I stumbled upon (literally on StumbleUpon.com) Mark’s Daily Apple about 3 years ago and have been interested in the primal/paleo lifestyle ever since then. I have read countless books and blogs, and have tried sharing the information to anyone curious about nutrition. Unfortunately, most people that I share this with are not willing to give up grains, dairy and their 100 calorie snack packs. As Americans, it can be hard to look past the aisles and shelves stocked full of crackers, cookies and cereals (among many other “food-like substances”). However, it is becoming more apparent that these foods are slowly making us overweight, unhealthy and ultimately, SICK.

“Some Like It Paleo” is going to be a way for me share this lifestyle with people who are genuinely interested in learning about how to be healthy and happy! It will have a multitude of different things going on until I can figure out what my true direction is; it will be educational with a side of my personal experiences. I will be sharing my own knowledge and blogging my way through new paleo experiments (and yes, even simply cooking can be an experiment for me!). One of the first things on my “list” is to make my own kombucha! (Yay fermented tea!)

Thank you all for reading!
