We’re celebrating! All about it, along with our new family member, and 30-minute or less recipes in this week’s newsletter!
Our Real Life
We’ve been putting apple butter on EVERYTHING this week (and we’d highly recommend it on our light and fluffy White Waffles!). You might also like our recipe for pumpkin butter… tis’ the season!
We went to the pet store for cat food… then, we came home with a Bearded Dragon! This girl immediately stole Stacy’s heart – she’s an amputee rescue (previously purchased at a pet store and attached by a cage-mate) and is now so sweet to be in a safe home that she’s as sweet as can be. She loves to sit on our shoulders; after 8 years of begging for a reptile the boys are all loving her! She is the perfect paleo pet – eating live meal worms and crickets, it’s been a lot of fun to have another “baby” in the house and seeing the whole family take care of her together. You’ll be seeing a lot more of Trizzie on our blog & media!
We had a LOT to celebrate this weekend! We officially launched Real Everything, our new website – so you’ll find us blogging over there now. A whoooole lot more about that in this post! We also celebrated the end of the fiscal year which is a milestone for Stacy’s job (Happy New Years for Stacy), and we also joined our good friend Brent from That Paleo Couple‘s at The Mansion on O Street for his birthday! We let loose, were able to relax, and enjoy some celebratory drinks (sans kids)!
We also had a launch party on Facebook Live to celebrate last night… more on that next week, as we’re still recovering a bit this morning 😉

All about Meal Planning! I showed you exactly how we plan out a week’s worth of meals- from taking into account special situations, to using up what we already have on hand, and building in some no-cook days and using leftovers. Watch —> HERE!
What We’re Loving This Week!
We are so THRILLED for our friend Danielle and her brand new book Celebrations. We’ve been cooking out of this one for a couple weeks now and are LOVING the recipes- she has done an incredible job of re-creating all the flavors of the holidays and other life-celebrations that we love, but in a much healthier and Paleo-friendly way! She was all over TV and media this week on the Today Show, The Doctor’s, Sprout, and more – we LOVE how mainstream and approachable Danielle makes this lifestyle for the masses!

I first tried this herbal caffeine-free tea a few months ago when visiting Russ & family from The Domestic Man, and haven’t stopped drinking it since! And it is absolutely PERFECT for the fall weather ahead. Plus, it contains licorice and cinnamon, which help my overall digestion. I’ve been having a cup EVERY evening with Vital Proteins (coupon code/link below) before bed. I think you’ll love it too! Find it —> HERE!
Our apple peeler has been getting a real work out these past couple weeks! We love that the older boys can feel empowered to cut their own apple for a snack whenever they want. And this little gadget makes quick work of a big batch of apples for our homemade apple sauce and apple butter! Find it —> HERE!
