Hi Friends- Here’s a look at our week!
Look at that excitement! Getting mail has always been thrilling for the boys, but their enthusiasm BLOWS THE ROOF OFF THE HOUSE when that mail is a box full of paleo goodies from One Stop Paleo Shop! Including some of our favorites like the new Epic Liver & Beef Bar, Exo (cricket flour) Bars and Rx (egg-white protein) Bars.
It makes Stacy’s HEART SO FULL OF JOY to see the boys excited to spend time together working out in our home gym, gaining strength and wanting to take care of themselves. Cole’s doing thrusters, Finn’s working the sumo deadlifts, and Matt tested and hit his 1RM from Smolov! Having a gym in our home has been so rewarding!
We are ecstatic about some of the new POSITIVE MESSAGE campaigns being shared lately- especially “Like a Girl,” where being like a girl means you are strong, smart and beautiful. And Reebok’s “Be More Human,” a message to encourage constant progress, to better yourself and the world around you, and that when you test your physical limitations you can transform your life (we’ve seen this in our boys and ourselves!).
Being a passionate human being, and someone who is always striving to do better, eat better, feel better, be stronger- and loving her Reebok High Tops, Stacy is thrilled to practice this message and pass it along! What are you doing to Be More Human?! Maybe we can help?
Sometimes we wish could scream from the hills how LIFE-TRANSFORMING and WORLD-CHANGING the Paleo diet can be. This lifestyle can be approachable and simple (when armed with the right resources), like this weeknight dinner in our house: roasted potatoes, greens with onions and mushrooms, and The Perfect Pork Chop from Beyond Bacon (raised by Heritage Hollow Farms).
LOOOOVE THIS! And who doesn’t love a good info graphic?! I want to print some of these and hang them in the kitchen as art. Here are —> 27 Beautiful Infographics that Teach You How to Cook.

Confession: I use the microwave every day! And here’s why I feel okay about it —>The Truth About Microwave Ovens.
Starbucks recently announced the addition of coconut milk to their stores. But before you get too excited, check out these ingredients…thanks but no thanks.
I recommend just asking for a pat or two of butter to be blended into an Americano or drip coffee!
I have a reputation. A reputation for my lunchtime salads (among other things, ha!). I even won an award for my hashtag #morevegetablesthanavegetarian, inspired by my love of leafy greens! But my lunch salad wouldn’t be complete without my favorite accoutrements.
There’s Tessemae’s Lemon Garlic dressing and Main Coast Sea Salt with Sea Veg for adding superb flavor to my greens. Salty crunchy Inka Chips and Dried Tart Cherries are the perfect strong woman fuel. And then of course a little Gingerade Kombucha to wash it all down.
In other epic food news… Epic brand recently released a bar made with liver! A protein bar with liver, people! Nutrient-dense organ meats are taking the world by storm and it’s awesome. No seriously, liver has about 100 times more nutrient value than regular muscle meat – so this is a really POWERFUL protein bar!
