This healthy green smoothie is super easy to make and is great for breakfast or as an afternoon pick-me-up. It’s full of vitamins and minerals and tasty enough so that the kids won’t have the slightest idea that it’s packed with antioxidant-rich spinach.
If you’ve already caught onto the kombucha craze, I applaud you! But if not, I’ll be the first to admit that just a little more than a week ago, even I had absolutely no idea what this stuff was, or why there is such a fuss over it!
Why I Used To Hate Steak
I used to hate steak. At first, it was just because I didn’t like things that had blood coming out, and then once I got over that hump, it was because I was too scared to cook steak. Steak is often expensive, and I was terrified that I would ruin it.
Finally, I decided to take a chance and try cooking steak (using the pan-frying method). It was easy!
Maybe my steaks don’t taste quite as juicy as Gordon Ramsay’s, but I still love it.
My Simple Way of Cooking Steak
My simple way of cooking steak is to salt it before hand, then heat a frying pan with lots of ghee in it. Then carefully put the steak in, cook it for 3 minutes on high heat, then flip it and cook it for another 3 minutes on high heat. Then I’ll gently feel the steak with a spatula to see how firm or soft it is. Usually, it’s about medium rare at this point, and I cook it for 1-2 minutes longer to get it to medium. After cooking, I rest the steak on a plate for 5 minutes (some of the blood and juices will flow out) and then serve it.
Note – this is for a thin steak (for a thicker steak, it’s much better to stick it into the oven for a few minutes on 450-500F after pan-frying it on high heat for 30-60 seconds on each side).
My Easy Paleo Steak Salad Recipe
There are plenty of ways of eating steak, but salads are always delicious (and I love how easy they are too). So, here’s my easy Paleo steak salad recipe with some peaches fried in coconut oil. (If you omit the ghee and cook with coconut oil, then it’s AIP compliant too.)

Banana bread holds a special place in my heart. Growing up, I had a nanny who would make a big loaf every Friday afternoon, complete with chocolate chips! She would let me lick the bowl and spatula after she was done and of course we’d be nibbling away at the loaf all weekend long.
This is such an easy recipe! I started using deli turkey as a wrap back in the days when I did low carb, and I still use it occasionally to make quick snacks or breakfasts like this one.
Deli turkey works amazingly well as a wrap and adds a ton of flavor too. The only thing to watch out for is which deli turkey brand you purchase.
My mother always called it Jewish penicillin, but the truth is that chicken soup is a traditional cold and flu remedy in many cultures around the world. It’s great for making use of leftover chicken and veggies, and for warming you up on a cold winter afternoon, but lets face it. The nostalgia of being taken care of by mom on a sick day is what keeps you coming back for more!
