Fagan Eats Paleo Recipe: Paleo Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Shrimp


This past week, I tried out a pescatarian diet to see how I'd feel. But that got abandoned quickly when I had the idea to make Paleo a dish I used to enjoy when I was in college:  Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Stuffed with Pineapple, Green Pepper and "Cheese."  And boy am I glad I did!

Jamie's Thoughts: Why You Need to Learn How to Cook on Paleo


When I was in college, I used to think that I was too much a modern woman to learn how to cook. I wasn't the only one.  A friend of mine would often quip that she had never. touched. raw chicken?!? You can probably guess that my then-diet consisted largely of take out and pre-prepared foods.  It's no wonder I ended up gaining 15 pounds in college...

Fagan Eats Paleo Recipe: Roasted Radishes



Did you even know that you can roast radishes?  I sure didn't until I was at a French restaurant with a friend one day.  I have to say--I was intrigued.

Fagan Eats Paleo Recipe: Bearnaise Deviled Eggs with Crispy Shallots



Deviled eggs are one of my most favorite picnic foods.  For that reason, and because they are oh-so-easy to make, they were one of the first things I ever learned to cook.  So this week, i'm fancying up the good old deviled egg.

Fagan Eats Paleo Product Review: Thrive Market



This blog post is about an "online shopping club" I just started using called Thrive Market.  I've heard it described as an online retailer that's like WholeFoods and Costco having a baby.  If you can picture that...

I don't know about you, but I miss eating chicken nuggets sometimes; that experience of eating bite-sized chicken pieces and dipping them in sauces. Yum.  Not the easiest to recreate on Paleo though. But I think my new recipe does the trick...

Fagan Eats Paleo Product Review: RxBar Protein Bars

RxBar


Sometimes I play around with certain macro ratios to see what works best for me.  My biggest challenge is hitting the protein-mark while staying on point with my fat intake at the same time.  It's not easy.  Finding Paleo-friendly, whole food sources of protein bars/powders is equally challenging.  That's why I'm always in search of a great tasting Paleo protein bar.

Fagan Eats Paleo Recipe: Paleo Barbecue Chicken Drumsticks



I've said it before and I'll say it again:  some recipes are born out of necessity.  And that's just how these Paleo Barbecue Chicken Drumsticks came to be.  But that doesn't make them any less delicious.

I so wanted to have a recipe done for today's blog post.  But these are the pitfalls of just trying to whip up whatever comes into your head. Sometimes it doesn't work out.  Haha.  And this new super secret recipe (are you totally dying to know what it is yet?!) isn't quite right yet. Back to the drawing board it is.  In the meantime, let me talk to you about this super awesome Paleo pasta, Cappello's.

Comfort food at its finest.
Anyone who knows me well knows that mashed potatoes are my favorite food.  Sometimes I'm embarrassed by this admission.  I feel like I should say something more sophisticated like lobster or beef wellington or whatever.  But nope.  It's mashed potatoes.

Jamie's Thoughts: New New Year's Resolutions




I'm big on making New Year's resolutions.  To be honest, I don't always keep them though.  You might wonder what's the point of making a resolution then; but for me, there's something about the energy surrounding the beginning of a new year--the hope, the possibility--that keeps me resolute in my resolution making each year.
