Hi Friends, here’s a look at our week!
Last weekend was our annual glamping trip (glamorous camping…as in, we rent a cabin) – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, by the way. It is such a great way for the boys to spend time with each other without many worldly distractions. There’s plenty of fresh air, interaction with nature, and time to unwind and use our imaginations. And you’re probably wondering – yes, ducks like gluten free bread too!
Camp breakfasts are the BEST. On this morning it was scrambled eggs with bacon and sausage, and a special treat of gluten-free bread with Steve’s Paleo’s version of Nutella. Plus fresh fruit and coffee. A great way to fuel a fun day! We have a whole blog post outlining our usual camp-eats if you’re needing even more inspiration!
Learning self-respect taught me to love myself enough to make good choices, changing both my body and my mind. Now when I go out on the lake (and stand on display from the top of a tall cliff!) I can focus on the important things, like who is having more fun, me or the kids?! There was a time when I barely had energy to walk, and now I’m right beside my boys making lifetime memories. SO THANKFUL that I found Paleo. If you’re wanting to jump in but aren’t sure where to start, all of our best information on how we changed our lives is in Real Life Paleo.
It just doesn’t seem like camping without s’mores, does it?! We made the (culinary genius move!) to use chocolate chip cookies instead of graham crackers. Obviously this was a BIG HIT with everyone! And the perfect ending to a relaxing day.

Camp Food Must-Haves!
Half of the fun in camping is making rustic, hearty food outdoors and eating it in the open-air. A perpetual picnic! Here are some of our camping favorites!
These definitely aren’t Paleo, but they are a once-a-year treat that doesn’t leave us feeling yucky. We use these Vegan Marshmallows that we use for roasting and s’mores. They have a nice vanilla flavor and toast up golden, brown and delicious!
Nut butter travels well and is great for eating with fruit, on toast in the morning, or for sandwiches. This year we brought Steve’s Chocolate Hazelnut Spread. Wes said he wished he could have that every morning for breakfast. Yeah, dream on kid! Ha! Find this incredible Paleo delicacy —> HERE!
When we camp, lunches are always simple lettuce leaves or Pure Wraps filled with deli meats, veggies, avocado, and served with Jackson’s Honest Potato Chips and fruit. We keep it simple and quick so we can maximize our merry-making time.
