That would be good too. I’ve attempted surfing about 4-5 times in my life. Why so many tries and not … Continue reading

Baked Chicken with Peaches and Plums

Baked Chicken with Peaches and Plums

 One of the things I had to give up when I left LA was my membership to the local Crossfit gym. I’ve enjoyed a break from the intensity of daily WODs while finding strength and flexibility in my yoga practice and inspiration while exploring the great outdoors. Now that I’m here in sunny San Clemente I’ve got … Continue reading

Pesto Gazpacho

Pesto Gazpacho

I’m moving!! Well, not permanently, but I’m still excited because I will be spending my fall/winter months here: This is San Clemente. It’s in Orange County, but it’s probably the least “OC” city in the county. If you don’t know what that means, watch a couple episodes of The OC, Real Housewives of Orange County, … Continue reading

Ceviche is a great paleo meal. That’s why I now have 3 versions of it on my blog. (see here and here) Yesterday, my man took me out for a little birthday dinner and we had some ceviche at a Spanish tapas restaurant in Pasadena. The ceviche was so good that I wanted it again. … Continue reading

Grilled Salmon over Ginger Kale

Grilled Salmon over Ginger Kale

Mmmm. Is there anything better than crispy salmon skin?!  Nope. The answer is no. Unless it’s fried bacon skin. I’ve been on an animal skin kick lately. Not sure what brought that on, but I will enjoy some grilled fish skin and chicharrones until the hankering departs. Here’s a little meal sure to impress anyone and it … Continue reading

Lamb Kabob

Lamb Kabob

Lately, I’ve been introducing lamb into my diet. It was not an animal that I’d ever had until the last 5 months. I gotta admit, it’s pretty tasty. It’s also a nice diversion from beef, chicken, fish, bacon… One of my favorites so far is a grilled lamb kabob. I marinate the lamb meat, some vegetables and … Continue reading
