Know what gets me down sometimes? When I say I love tacos and people think I'm talking about Taco Bell. 🤦♀️
Oh my GOSH, you guys, tacos are so much better than the fast food fare I grew up with. Homemade tacos are one of the top meals in my house (we make them every week), and trust me when I say they're epic.
It's hard to get bored of phenomenal tacos, which is why it's worth it to make our own tortillas, keep a big batch of homemade taco seasoning on hand, and keep our favorite toppings around at all times.
One way I made healthy eating and cooking at home worth the effort was by perfecting staple meals that, to me, taste way better than what I could buy at a restaurant. Yes, I still go out to eat, but I usually seek out more unusual fare, not what I can easily recreate at home.
What's your preference? Tacos in or tacos to go?
I had half a pumpkin left after making my pumpkin and mushroom curry the other night. Luckily I had already cooked and pureed it, which made adding it to my chili that much easier.
Chili is one of my favorite meals to make in bulk during the cooler months. I can then portion it out and freeze it for lunches and dinners.
I love a thick and hearty chili, especially for reheating. The pumpkin and arrowroot really help thicken it up. I then serve mine with fresh chopped oregano and sliced avocado.
1 onion diced
1 lb beef
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp chili powder (more to taste)
8 oz can tomato sauce
1 Tbsp date paste (optional)
1 Tbsp arrowroot
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes-fire roasted
1 (10 oz.) milder diced tomatoes with green chilies
1.5 cups pumpkin puree (or one can)
1/2 tsp ancho chili powder
1/2 cup chicken broth or water
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
Heat large dutch oven (or saucepan) on medium heat. Add beef, chili powder, salt, pepper, and 1/2 onion. Cook 4 minutes or until meat is brown with no pink. Stir in remaining ingredients, including remaining 1/2 onion. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook an additional 15 minutes. Add desired toppings.

I've been on a personal mission to create grain/dairy/refined sugar free versions of my favorite Holiday treats so that I can join in on the fun this year!
These Ginger cookies turned out SO good and I can't wait to make some more.
My only complaint was that they were a tad bit dry, so I may use a little less coconut flour next time.
I'm not one for following recipes so the measurements I used were kind of by feel and the texture I was trying to achieve for the dough.
-1/2 cup black strap molasses -1/2 cup melted coconut oil
-1/2 cup almond butter -1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
-1 tbsp ginger -1 tbsp cinnamon -1.5 cups coconut flour -3 tbsp coconut sugar
-1tsp baking soda -pinch of pink Himalayan salt
Mix wet ingredients together in a bowl.
Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and than slowly stir into wet mixture.
(The batter should be a cookie dough consistency)
Heat oven to 350°. Roll batter into small balls and place on a baking sheet.
Bake for ~10 minutes.

Nothing but cozy fall vibes happening in this bowl of Anti-Inflammatory Curried Cauliflower Soup, made with ginger, garlic and crispy cauliflower croutons! 🥄 I also blended in some hemp seeds for an extra boost of protein, fiber and healthy fats. Recipe is up on the blog!
Two weeks ago I kept raving about my #Whole30 #instantpot
sweet potato 🍠 chicken chili 🌶 that I had for #whole30lunch
. Well I finally did something for #goaltober
and got it written up and posted on my blog! So head over there if ya want a really easy instant pot recipe for ⠀
this weekend. ⠀
Also who else loves their @instantpotofficial
? I like to pretend I’m like a witch watching over her cauldron 🧙🏻♀️🔮 when I use it 🤣.
What a day of eating looks like for me:
• Breakfast- typically some type of eggs 🍳either with GF toast or potatoes, sometimes even breakfast tacos🌮 a smoothie or pancakes🥞
• Lunch- almost always some type of salad with leftovers on top with lots of healthy fats🥗
• Snack- RX bars, fruit + almond butter, tbh whatever I can find😂
• Dinner- typically a #paleoish
meal, like this one. but sometimes I’ll throw in some rice or lentil pasta for funsies🍝
After doing the #whole30
, I realized I felt best staying dairy-free, only eating gluten when it’s worth it, and watching my sugar intake. I’ll eat grains and beans occasionally and I feel fine. 💁🏼♀️ I get asked about this a lot, so I felt like I should share. Please ask me any questions!!❤️
On my plate: a grilled pork chop with a jicama-mango-cilantro salsa + a chipotle almond butter kale salad (1 tsp @sietefoods

Paleo cashew butter chocolate chip cookies made with just four healthy ingredients 😋👌🏼
Today I decided to have lunch by myself at one of the local coffee shops by my job. I don’t mind being by myself, I actually like eating alone and people watching.
As I sat here drinking my coffee, I couldn’t help but overhearing some of the conversations around me. And when I say I heard almost all the women and girls in the room mention weight loss at least once, I’m not exaggerating.
All the women were in separate conversations, with separate people, separate lives. But all of them had one thing in common: weight loss.
How they needed to lose weight, how they felt emotionally crappy because they weren’t losing weight, how they need to go on a starvation diet, how they need to eat only lettuce, the list went on.
And as I sat here listening, I was just overcome with a sense of sadness. Not everything has to be about weight loss. How do you FEEL? Do you feel strong? How does your body feel? Are you happy? Not everything is about the weight on the scale.
Although I am actively seeking to lose fat, I also understand the importance of knowing the difference between a number on the scale and the strength of my muscles, the loss of inches/fat, and the most important, the happiness in my heart.
This is just a reminder that your life isn’t weight loss. It’s so much more than that.

Anyone else just wing it while cooking?! Or do you have to have a recipe & measure everything? / **R E C I P E in S T O R Y** /
I winged this recipe (like I typically do)! This is a great recipe if you have some veggies laying around that need cooked or don’t have any yellow curry paste.
Serve with some cauliflower rice (in highlights). And wahlah! 20 min recipe!
Add some chicken, shrimp, or tofu & WAHLAH!
***Cheese & Veggie Stacks*** Nothing fancy here…this was a super QUICK snack I threw together after a busy day running a bunch of errands. .
We were SO hungry when we got home and we’ve been doing the #Ketodiet
lately which means no more cheese and crackers or chips and guacamole as a quick snack when I’m too hungry to make something 😩 my guilty pleasure for sure!! .
SO…I chopped up a tomato, half a cucumber, some pepper jack cheese, and few pieces of organic roasted chicken I had in my fridge and stacked them up between romaine lettuce leaves. AND - it turned out surprisingly good! 🙌 So good that I had to take a pic and share with ya! 😍
Remember- the key to any lifestyle or diet change is to find ways to keep a little of what you used to love in the mix 😉
For me, the cheese mixed with some crunchy fresh veggies actually worked perfect…I didn’t even need the chicken. .
My guy, on the other hand, would have looked at my like “where’s the real food?” if I just had little stacks of veggies and no meat 🤣 I just made two versions and boom...win win 😁
So have FUN experimenting with your foods and you’ll find what works for you and your fam. .
And you just may stumble upon a new favorite that you never knew you’d love!! 💗😋

Had to get up early to prep this and throw it in the slow cooker, but it was totally worth the effort. I wasn’t sure if pumpkin chili would turn out really good or really gross (especially since it’s my own recipe), but it worked out and made for a perfect cozy dinner to end a rainy day. Stay warm!😊 Ingredients:
-1 lb ground beef
-1 white onion (chopped)
-1 bell pepper (red or green)
-1/2 c chicken stock
-1/4 c water
-1 15oz can of pumpkin purée -1 12oz can of tomato paste
-Some fresh diced tomatoes (I didn’t measure but it was probably about 1/4 c)
-Some avocado oil for sautéing -About 1 tsp each of the following spices: cumin, garlic powder, & oregano
-1/2 tsp salt
-2 tbsp chili powder
-Dash of pepper
1. Heat up the oil in a large pan and sautée the onion and bell pepper on medium heat until the onion starts to brown.
2. Add the meat to the pan and cook until it’s all browned (break it into pieces with a spatula as it cooks).
3. Put this mixture into a slow cooker and add the remaining ingredients. Stir well and then turn the cooker onto low heat.
4. Cook for about 8 hours and then enjoy!
