Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary
Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary – School starts both for of my girls in our house this week. I am so (ahem) looking forward to getting into a routine again…summer’s vacations and trips kept us on our toes! I eagerly anticipate the rhythm of dropoffs and pickups, running errands, grocery shopping, therapy sessions for my youngest, and soccer practice and games for my oldest.

As we get ready for school days, I will be resuming my old habit of photographing some of my girls’ lunchboxes for a glimpse into our household’s lunch-pack… Read more

Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary
Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary – This is my new favorite finger food, snack food, lunch food, whatever! They would make an especially great summertime hors d’ouevre, because of the portability, snackability, and the way the cold, sweet, crunchy snap peas are enveloped by a layer of salty porky prosciutto goodness. I will definitely be making these for our upcoming road trip; talk about an easy low carb snack food that we all enjoy!

My two young daughters are also keen on these; the whole plate of snap peas was cleaned out about 5 minuter … Read more

Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary
Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary – Greetings, fellow summertimers!

It is my first summer after a full public school year; my oldest daughter wrapped up kindergarten last month, and ever since then, we’ve found ourselves in a strong undertow of summer scheduling. Summer means many things:

Swim lessons for both girls, speech therapy, and occupational therapy soaking up much of the mornings
Dependably long, solid naptimes (wahoo! so I usually get to nap, too!)
More time outdoors in general, especially in our back yard and garden
Grilling

Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary
Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary – I just came off a three week CrossFit nutrition challenge. One of the things that convicted me this time around was how often I add a dash of something here or there to sweeten; actively adding sweeteners was verbotten in this last challenge.

So, coasting off the end of the challenge today, I had the, “OK, what now?” When off-roading, what is really worth it? The answer jumped out at me from the produce section today.

Rhubarb.

Rhubarb is only here for two or three weeks in earnest, and then it’s gone. I… Read more

Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary – I was delighted to write a guest post for The Balanced Platter that was published this week!

My topic was lunch salads that can be packed ahead of time without wilting by lunchtime. The secret is choosing heartier vegetable bases.

The below is a sneak peak, but click on over to The Balanced Platter to read the full post for mix and match options that add up to 9 different pack-ahead “un-salad” combinations!… Read more

Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary – It’s COW DAY!

Today our family picked up its first whole grassfed cow. Before, we had bought half grassfed cows from a couple of different local farmers. We knew that we were in for a lot more beef than we had ever bought, so we added another chest freezer to our family’s setup in the garage.

Before our family made the move toward increasingly depending on local bulk purchases of meat, I was always at a loss for knowing how much beef would be involved, how much freezer space we’d need to have,  … Read more

Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary
Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary – My 3 year old daughter had a good month. OK, a really good month. The thing about having a special needs kid, is that needed core resources can often be inaccessible due to insurance, geography, or other heartbreaking complications. Or, the pendulum can find itself on the other end of the spectrum, where everybody is selling something to help, and the bewildered parent tries to figure out what is or isn’t covered by insurance, and what offerings seem most promising.

In our house we have pa… Read more

Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary
Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary – Often, I wonder if it is worthwhile trying so hard as a family on the diet end of things. My investigation into how food impacts biochemistry/hormones originated about three years ago because of my family’s and my own lifelong struggle with weight. Yet, striving to focus our diet on nourishing foods proves daily to be a countercultural notion.

Still, a couple of years the road, my husband and I realized that keeping my youngest’s diet as cleaned up as possible was central to supporting her therapies and sp… Read more

Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary – If there’s one thing that I learned long term from my years as a dedicated couponer, it is the mental exercise

Our WalMart has an ever-improving

gluten-free section. I don’t use it

all the time but it’s nice to have there

for certain occasions.

of skimming my grocers’ shelves for price points on my regular paleo staples, and new-to-me paleo-friendly items. Even in few grocery store aisles that I shop every week, I find my eyes spontaneously flicking across each shelf, line by line, searching for nov… Read more
