Gastro-Tourism: The Hubbernation Issue

Kind of like Sports Illustrated: The Swimsuit Issue. Yes? Equally awesome? So let’s pretend “Best. Week. Ever.” is ONE word, so I can say: “If I had to pick ONE WORD to describe this week, it would be: BestWeekEver.” Having the Cavehusband home has refreshed my love for cooking and for enjoying Primal eating. I […]

The Lonely Tailgaters

Quick post before I begin hyperventilating about the fact that it’s SNOWING outside on my CH’s scheduled return-from-deployment date. In an effort to head off the irrational snow-air travel paranoia that begins bubbling up at the first precip sighting (inevitably leading to a pre-10 AM bottle – er, glass – of Cab), I decided to […]

#PaleoLove: Day 2

The challenge is in full swing! Today’s featured Expert for the 30 Day Paleo Love Challenge is posted here, at Crossfit Love! You may recognize the Expert – Steve of Steve’s Original! I moonlight (And daylight. And butt-crack of dawnlight) as the Nutrition Advisor for Steve’s Original – if you don’t keep up with the […]

Mouth Money – 30 Days, Day 29

As I bring Mouth Money V.1 to a close, I’ve been asked “what’s next?” Nothing changes for me – I’ll continue to eat “clean” as I have been – but with the self-satisfaction of having “walked the walk” publicly. I will relieve myself – and my three readers – of the dutiful daily FACEBOOK/TWITTER updates […]

Mouth Money – 30 Days, Day 27

Saturday, August 7, 2010 As if the delicious food and great nutrition didn’t give me enough ammunition in favor of the “Primal lifestyle,” today I spent 12 hours navigating the best of NYC tourism – from 10 AM to 10 PM – in a pair of Vibram Five Fingers. At first I was slightly worried […]

Mouth Money – 30 Days, Day 26

Friday, August 6, 2010 We’re off to NYC in 30 minutes with the fam, so this will be a quick post! Breakfast: Eggs n’ bacon. Lunch: Delicious leftover Bison Chili with home-grown tomato (look how beautiful it is!) and canteloupe. Dinner: A delicious, leisurely dinner with the in-laws at our new fave – the Mediterranean […]

Mouth Money – 30 Days, Day 25

Thursday, August 5, 2010 I’m proud of Thursday’s 30 Days accomplishments. Each meal was conceptualized in about 5 minutes and assembled/cooked within about 10-15. I’m learning to be maximally creative and time-efficient, which rocks my socks (or my Vibram Five Fingers) off. Breakfast: Half an avocado, sweet potato with cinnamon, and bacon. I choose the […]

Mouth Money – 30 Days, Day 24

Wednesday, August 4, 2010 Family is coming in town. It occurred to me yesterday that in the busiest times it’s most important to stick with your healthful Neanderthal-Paleo-Primal path. Deviating could only make a stressful or tired moment worse! Health habits have to be perpetually “in the plan.” Failure to plan = planning to fail, […]

Mouth Money – 30 Days, Day 23

Tuesday, August 3, 2010 Preparations are afoot for an impending visit from THE IN-LAWS! This basically means I’m yelling at Husband a lot and vacuuming the dog to pre-empt having to vacuum the floors again. Excuse the fuzzy photos – I had to juice up the camera today. With everything going on, the last thing […]

Mouth Money – 30 Days, Day 22

Monday, August 2, 2010 Are we annoyed with Mouth Money yet? Only about one week left! …until MM V.2! I have signed up for another 30-day challenge! I will not necessarily post meal blogs to Facebook or Twitter beyond Mouth Money V.1 (unless my mother and the Kardashians find that state of affairs unbearable). This challenge […]
