    Artichoke Basil Chicken Spaghetti Squash | Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Low Carb by Strive to Thrive Nutrition

    Necessity is the mother of creation, isn’t that what they say? Chefs often say their favorite meals are the ones they whip up after a long shift from whatever ingredients are left in the kitchen. I’d like to pretend I’m always prepared– I try to keep a well-stocked pantry, I’m always flagging recipes in magazines or on Pinterest, and I go to the grocery store way too often.… Read the rest

    Paleo Apple Crisp | Grain free, gluten free, healthy by Strive to Thrive Nutrition

    Have you ever used one of those nifty apple peeler/corer/slicer contraptions? My mom used to own one and they certainly made apple crisp-making way too easy. She would quickly prep a half dozen apples, throw them into a baking dish, whip up a buttery, cinnamon-y oat streusel, and about forty-five torturous minutes of wait later, we would have a piping hot dish of apple crisp all to ourselves!… Read the rest

    Honey Mustard Chicken Legs | Paleo, Gluten Free, Low Carb by Strive to Thrive Nutrition

Back before we started trimming every bit of skin and fat from a chicken breast, before we became so disconnected from where our food comes from.… Read the rest

    Lamb is seriously underrated. It has so much more flavor and richness than your typical ground beef. If you’re one of those people who find it “gamey”, it’s time to get your hands on some quality lamb. Your local farmers market is an excellent option– that’s where we buy our lamb and it is some of the best I’ve ever tasted, and surprisingly affordable.… Read the rest

    Cocoa Beef Chili | Paleo, Gluten Free, Low Carb by Strive to Thrive Nutrition

    Ever since reading The Omnivore’s Dilemma, I vowed to eat only grass-fed beef. Cows are not meant to eat and digest corn. Doing so makes them incredibly ill, which is why most of the cattle raised in this country is pumped with antibiotics and hormones. I’m not about to become a vegetarian– I love meat and animal products contain necessary nutrition– but I definitely have a problem with making animals suffer.… Read the rest
