We had a great weekend spending time with Danielle from Against All Grain. She was in town for a book singing and we were practically counting down the days until her arrival – it’s tough when friends live so far away! The boys made her LEMON POPPYSEED MUFFINS from her first book, Against All Grain.
They love those muffins so much that they wanted to try something else from Danielle’s books. Thanks to a snow day, we made SANDWICH ROLLS from Danielle’s second book, Meals Made Simple, which then turned into these mile-high (if you’re a 4-year-old!) breakfast sandwiches with sausage and egg. Wesley’s face says it all!
The boys then were really on a baking kick and later that week used an overripe banana to make Banana Muffins from the SIMPLE MILLS BAGGED MIX, which they chose, bought, and MADE THEMSELVES. Letting them choose to buy things monthly from ONE STOP PALEO SHOP, an all-paleo online grocery store (they get a $25 allowance each) has resulted in some awesome finds we now love. We share more on our favorite things in a post by Cole this week!
Also this week, Stacy got asked many times… “but butter and cream aren’t paleo?” Well, not strictly, no. But, Stacy loooooves CHICKEN LIVER MOUSSE !! I mean, in so far as that it’s healing medicine… This is the recipe she credits for mood improvement, healthy joints, and glowing skin. Adding quality dairy back into her diet after a lifetime of intolerance came when she started focusing on seeking out nutrient dense foods. When she starts feeling tired or generally blah, this is a great cure! She’s even snuck it into the movie theater before!
Also part of Stacy’s nutrient-dense healing diet? Daily soup (#breakfastsoup #soupwithstacy #bonebrothheals) and salads (#morevegetablesthanavegetarian). Now that the holidays and the book tour are officially wrapped up, Stacy is enjoying life back in a routine, which includes training heavy things – from squats to stones – what fuels her best is protein-filled veggie-loaded salads and FAMOUS STACY’S SOUPS – which this week included Leftover Roast Chicken Soup (another Against All Grain recipe)!

As a busy family, we’re no strangers to beef jerky, and dried fruit and nuts mixes for on-the-go snacking. And we adore SUSTAINAPAK, not only because IT IS ALL GRASS-FED but because the jerky is separated from the other goodies in their packs. For kids, this is HUGE, which is why Finn LOVES THEM. It’s the little things. Oh, and see the discounts section at the bottom of the newsletter for a COUPON CODE!
The boys have been in a muffin-making phase lately, which means our earth-friendly SILICON MUFFIN LINERS have been getting a lot of use! These have been a favorite for a long time for the ease of use, easy clean-up, no-waste, and kid-friendliness.
In a recent episode of The Paleo View Podcast, Stacy learned that her decaf coffee was no bueno. Making the switch to tea has been a breeze because of Delicious Obsessions Herbal No Caffeine High Antioxidant “Coffee”.
