OK.. I was exhausted tonight. .Rough weeks happen, so it’s OK to simplify. Still, the kids were delighted to have Trader Joe’s Organic Broccoli Slaw, Nitrate Free Turkey Dogs, and Gluten Free Mac and Cheese. . Obviously, Paleo Mom abstained from the rice pasta and instead had an extra weiner and large helping of Slaw. . Slaw includes Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar, Natural Mayonnaise, Organic Fugitive Apple, Organic Raisins, Soaked and Dehydrated Pecans, Turmeric, and Pepper. AND EVERYONE CLEANED THEIR PLATES!
I probably won’t go to the spa for chemical peels, glue fake nails on, inject botox, tattoo my skin, pierce my body, or augment my breasts. But, sometimes I like to accentuate my eyes and moisturize my lips with natural products. It’s important to be careful what you put in and on your body, as we can transdermally absorb toxins. I look for 100% vegan. Cruelty-free. Formulated without FD & C color, parabens, talc and mineral oil. Pacifica Beauty Products help strengthen lashes with Vitamins and Minerals. They even have water resistant products for when you’re doing Hot Yoga. I also love their pure tropical perfumes like Island Vanilla Coconut and Guava….Not overbearing for scent-sitive noses. A little tip… Coconut Oil is a great makeup remover.
There is no better tuna than fresh caught steaks. If you are fortunate enough to have a fisherman in the family, or live near the water and have a local market, pickup some tuna steaks. . Iron grill with lemon and minced garlic on medium on all sides. . Quality fish can remain raw inside, but I choose to cook thoroughly since I have young immune systems to feed. . Organic Sweet Potatoes Coined with Powdered Ginger and Fresh Rosemary baked with Coconut Oil at 375 until tender. . Organic Spinach, Avocado, Organic Celery, Organic Carrots, Grape Tomatoes, EVOO, Sea Salt, and Apple Cider Vinegar. TOTAL TIME: 30 Minutes. Omega 3,6,9s to assist uptake of all the Fat Soluble Vitamins A D E and K in one meal. Absolutely Nutritious and Delicious.

This took 15 minutes from package to plate. Enjoy!
EZ Taco Salad
It’s Taco Night. If you’re like me, I have other mouths to feed. So, even though I eat Paleo Style, I allow my children legumes and sprouted grains once in awhile..they also consume dairy. Every body is different, so this meal is sure to please the whole crew, plus almost everything came from Costco! Super Simple and affordable!
- Taco Meat – Coleman Organic Ground Turkey from Costco- cooked to temperature in EVOO with natural TACO seasoning
- Organic Black Baked Beans reheated – from Trader Joes – for the kiddos – because these are a Paleo No No
- Ezekiel Sprouted Wraps – baked in an iron skillet with olive oil for the children
- Chopped white organic onions from Trader Joes – pungent and spicy
- Chopped organic Cilantro from Fred Meyers – so fragrant, cleansing, and refreshing.
- Organic Jacks Salsa from Costco
- Chopped Grape Tomatoes from Costco
- Sliced Avocado from Costco
- Natural Cheddar from Costco shredded for the children – and know that cheddar cheese contains a “natural food coloring” to be colored with Annatto. Again, this is a treat for them.
