Southwest Steak & Potato Hash with Spicy Ranch | PALEO, Whole30

Sometimes I get conflicting information on the whole "eggs for breakfast" debacle-  do we love them or hate them?  I'd love for you to comment below & tell me!

Anytime I ask for recipe requests or what you'd like to see more of, I immediately get "egg-free breakfast recipes".  But every time I do a poll asking whether we love or hate eggs... over 90% of people say "love"!  So do you get my confusion!?

Either way, I'm all on board for switching it up now & then.  And I do know that there are many of you out there who truly dislike eggs or have sensitivities to them, or are even allergic.  

So here I am with another egg-free breakfast, and I'm honestly loving it!

Slow Cooker Barbacoa & Creamy Jalapeño Slaw | PALEO, Whole30

We're all about the taco Tuesday recipes around here... but not only on Tuesdays!  I love Mexican-inspired dishes every day of the week, and find them so easy to make a healthy version of.

Probably because there is so much flavor!

Barbacoa is a favorite, especially in my salads & burrito bowls at Chipotle!  But now that I've realized how easy it is to make my own at home, where I can control every last spice & ingredient- no more relying on restaurants to do the work!

Did I mention the beef is done in the slow cooker?!  It is so, so easy- and cooks while you're away at work or busy doing life in the meantime!

Potsticker Stir Fry | PALEO, Whole30

Being 6 months pregnant has me more motivated than ever to eat nutrient dense foods.  But by the end of the day, my back's a little sore, my feet are a little tired, and I'm pretty much not excited by spending any longer than 30 minutes in the kitchen.

Enter my usual fav:  a one-dish meal that takes under 30 minutes start to finish, AND makes leftovers to scoop into bowls for the next day's lunches.  Win-win-win!

My Safer Beauty Favorites | skin, hair, body, makeup, & more!

Sharing my favorite products that I use on a daily basis:  safer skincare, haircare, bath & body, makeup, & more!  I hope you enjoy this roundup of what has truly changed my skin, and taken me one step further towards a healthy life.

From total tomboy, to "learning how to be a girl", to absolute makeup hoarder, to coconut oil minimalist... it's been a long road that's led me to where I am now in my self-care routine!  

Beauty has become a passion for me over the years, but I felt lost when I suddenly realized what was lurking inside the pretty packaging of so many of the brands I loved.  

Shampoo, body wash, moisturizer, foundation, lip products... there are some scary ingredients out there with a serious lack of research and safety regulations when it comes to protecting our health & the health of our loved ones.

Finding Beautycounter has been such a relief, because as a brand- I trust them.  They take the guess work out of searching for safer products, and performance is never sacrificed.  

Berry Crumb Muffins | PALEO, Nut Free

Sharing a new recipe for easy scratch-made muffins that are Paleo friendly, nut-free, and oh so delicious.  I love the addition of ghee for a buttery flavor, but you could absolutely substitute coconut oil if that's what you prefer!  Pack 'em, snack on 'em, or munch on them with a coffee.  I hope you love them!
