Introducing the New Whole30 Book! | The Whole30® Program.

Looking forward to meeting Melissa Hartwig today, co-author of Whole 30, and having her sign my book. She will be in Toronto at the Bay and Bloor Indigo.

I hope she doesn’t mind bear hugs from random followers 😉

Thanks Joel!

Types of Paleo


Pancake’s without Penance


To some, Pancake Day / Shrove Tuesday is a time for introspection, confession and penance.

Pancake Day is also called Fat Tuesday / Mardi Gras; a time for that one last carb-binge before the Lent fast.

I say; let us simply celebrate this day, as we should everyday, without the aforementioned self-punitive rituals; free of self-reproach, self-indulgence and self-deprivation / fasting.

Let us eat pancakes!

Coconut Flour Bread

I have recently started following trying my darndest to follow a paleo regime, rather than just grain-free, but having intense carbohydrate cravings – I am talk’n pasta sandwich sized cravings here, especially in the afternoons. This is in-part due to cutting out my 2pm chunk of chocolate heaven habit (soma chocolate LOVE).

Thai Stick (above), my fave. I miss you.

I haven’t made a paleo-loaf in a few months, but it has helped to quiet my sugar-plum trolls in the past and if there were ever a time I really needed it, that time is now!

I am re-posting my original blog to let you know that I have since modified the ingredients slightly to make a fluffier/easier to swallow (eeeeek) loaf. I have made it considerably more palatable by adding a little more coconut oil and eliminating the ground flax seeds (I can add those to anything).

Mix all of these ingredients well and bake in a bread pan at 350 for 40 minutes:

6 eggs

1/2 cup extra virgin organic coconut oil (melted)

2 tsp. raw honey, or paleo sweetener of your choice

3/4 cup of coconut flour.


High Fiber, High Protein and Lower in Carbs. I used this recipe to wean myself off of bread completely.

These are Sweet and Simple – I love recipe’s with brief and manageable ingredient lists.
I had everything the recipe calls for in stock, except for the cherries, which I replaced with organic dried cranberries; they still turned out great.

Here is the link to the original recipe from

4 Ingredient Parsnip Latkes

These paleo fritters of love are faster than pancakes and better than Oma’s, Bubbes AND Babushka’s potato variation, put together!… but that’s just my personal opinion:)

Grain-free Pad Thai


A low-carb, tastier and much more nutritious alternative to the traditional glass noodle pad thai.

Fresh is always best, but in our house kale is one of those things that lives rent-free in the fridge and expires before it is used; I find it time consuming to wash and cut, but with this alternative I only have to do it once. These cubes make it really easy to add nutrient rich kale to shakes, sauces, smoothie drops, soups – you name it!
