First Trimester Pregnancy Recap

Pregnancy - First Trimester Recap - Kohler Created

First, thank you so much for all your wonderful comments and messages. They mean so much and they just made that week all the more special. It’s exciting to be out in the open now and able to share this experience! I don’t even know how to approach writing about pregnancy. On one hand, I’d […]

Whole30 Challenge: What will we keep?


Is anyone else tired of winter yet? Blegh. I think it’s safe to say that as we near the end of the Whole30 Challenge, our thoughts are definitely mixed. On one hand, we desperately needed a dietary reset and the overall results (both physical and emotional) have been pretty impressive. We needed the reset, and […]

The Whole30 Challenge: Week 2


I mentioned in our last post that we’ve somewhat hit a groove with Whole30 and are starting to feel the physical/mental differences so many people talk about. While that is exciting to see and feel, we’ve also definitely hit some hurdles/annoyances. Sponteneity is Dead Because meals have to be prepped and prepared from scratch, and […]

Meal Planning: 10/14-10/18 & 10/21-10/25


Another week down of meal planning down! We got a little off track last week with Erica being out-of-town for work, but we still managed to have some great meals over the past two weeks. Some trends are definitely forming as the weather cools down. Squash has been on the menu quite a bit. We […]

Meal Planning 101: The Beginning


It seems antithesis to say, but now that I’m not working from home, I finally feel like I’m getting organized around the house. I know, crazy right!? One of my big goals in returning to a regular office job was to get our menus and meals more organized during the week. With our freelance business, […]

Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Bread


My mom is the queen of quick breads. I’m not kidding. Her breads are always the perfect balance of cake and bread, and always cook completely through without burnt edges or mushy centers. I don’t know how she does it — but I resent her making me love them so much. Growing up, she used […]

Paleo Thai Pork with Almond Sauce


Ah, how is it already Friday!? I feel like this week went so fast! Maybe it’s because we’re fresh off a vacation? We need more of those if that’s the case. We’ve suffered from major kitchen avoidance this week. With triple-digit temperatures nearly all week (Wednesday was nearly being 107 degrees!), it feels impossible to […]

Cut me some slack


Dinner last night was particularly good, and so simple there really isn’t need for a recipe. A pork loin chop wrapped in bacon. Seared. With steamed broccoli. That’s it, that’s really it, but it was perfect after a particularly hard workout. Last night we did “Nancy“, which is comprised of: 5 Rounds (for time): 15 […]

Paleo Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie


Does pie require further explanation beyond its name? It’s the dessert you can find in some form at every season and holiday.  Pie is perfect for every celebration, or non-celebration. This pie was conceived to make use of somewhat squishy price-reduced strawberries and mystery rhubarb, which I found tucked into a corner of the second […]

Reader question: Supplementing our Paleo lifestyle


We’ve received a few questions about supplements, and how we approach them while trying to maintain a Paleolithic approach to eating. A good and tough question to answer! Let’s start at the beginning. In a perfect world, Neil and I would love to get all of our nutrients from the foods we eat. In the […]
