Primal Apple Barbecue Sauce

Primal Apple Barbecue Sauce

This tangy Primal Apple Barbecue Sauce is a different take on a more traditional recipe.  The addition of apple sauce, cloves, and cinnamon give it a sweater, tangier finish.  I made it specifically to pair with pulled pork, but it also works well with grilled chicken and other pork recipes. Condiments like ketchup, mayo and…

Blueberry Maple Barbecue Sauce

Blueberry Maple Barbecue Sauce

I’ve been wanting to make a blueberry maple barbecue sauce for a while now. I got the idea after having some pretty amazing blueberry barbecue ribs at a restaurant called Busters in remote Northern Ontario.  Matt and I stopped there on our final 24-hour drive home from Red Lake. Buster’s was featured on the Food Network’s…

Foam Rolling For Recovery and Athletic Performance

I remember the day that I was introduced to foam rolling vividly. I was playing varsity hockey at the time and had developed a pretty painful case of IT band friction syndrome after a gruelling pre-season training camp. In the months leading up to the training camp, I was working a full time summer job,…

Paleo Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

Paleo Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

Hellloooo summer! This is my favourite time of year.  I so enjoy Saturday afternoons spent relaxing at the beach, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, or hitting up the local fruit stands. The thing about summer that I most look forward to…backyard family barbecues.  What’s not to love?  Tasty eats, good conversation, and great company. But have you ever wondered over to…

Smokey Paleo Shredded Pork

Smokey Paleo Shredded Pork

When you think “health food” or “fitness food”, pulled pork probably isn’t a recipe that immediately comes to mind.  It’s true, most traditional pulled pork recipes are doused in sugar-laden barbecue sauces, and some are even cooked in root beer or Dr. Pepper. But pulled pork can be prepared in other ways and can definitely…

Paleo Ice Cream Cupcakes

Paleo Ice Cream Cupcakes

I have dairy allergy.  I find that the most difficult thing about following a dairy-free diet is the lack of desert options.  At least the lack of made-for-you desert options. Following a dairy-free (or a paleo diet) doesn’t mean that you have say goodbye to ice cream forever.  But it does mean that you’ll probably have to make…

Frittatas are very versatile.  They can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner; they taste great warm or cold; and they can be made with just about anything – including leftovers. Frittatas are a staple in my house because they’re quick and easy to prepare, they can be made ahead as part of a mass meal prep…

Bacon ‘n Egg Breakfast Muffins

Bacon 'n Egg Breakfast Muffins

Breakfast can be a difficult meal, especially if you have early work days or busy mornings. My husband works shift work.  When he’s on day-shift, he has to be up before 5 and out the door before 5:30.  This doesn’t leave much time for breakfast.  On morning’s like these, healthy breakfasts only happen if we…

The Best Granola Ever (In my humble opinion…)

The Best Granola Ever

I love cereal.  Who doesn’t.  It’s crunchy, it’s sweet, and it’s a quick breakfast option. The only problem is that most store-bought cereals, even the “healthy” or “organic” ones, are highly processed, full of sugar, and made with unhealthy fats. Homemade granola can be a tasty alternative for those mornings where you’re really craving a crunchy…
