There’s been some chatter on a few of the Whle30 boards I’m on about exactly how to get so much cooking done every week. How do you go paleo without devoting your entire life to cooking? There’s no getting around that paleo takes a hell of a lot of time in the kitchen. I’ve found… Read More Paleo friendly weekly cook-up and meal prep
After my last post, I got a few questions (and a few snarky emails) about making my own baby food. Here’s the thing. This works for me. I spend all day Sunday cooking *anyway* (thanks, paleo!). So it’s no big deal for me to steam more vegetables, then puree them before making some paleo mayo.… Read More On making baby food
The bad news is that I spent the weekend eating wheat products in hopes of increasing my milk supply. The good news is that I am now super clear on what types of food utterly destroy me when eaten in any sort of quantity. My supply did increase, but at the expense of my body.… Read More Grace is eating solids!
The good news is that cutting grains out of my diet has cured my digestive ills. Coworkers, I owe an apology to anyone who got stuck in an elevator with me my first two months in Freetown. The bad news is that it is really hard to go out to eat in Freetown and avoid… Read More Jumping on a bandwagon is awesome. And flatulence free.
Perhaps you’ve seen the gorgeous egg-in-avocado recipe that’s been floating around Pinterest. My version was also beautiful. Unfortunately, beautiful != delicious. I always forget how bland avocados are when baked. The texture was luxurious, but combined with the egg, the dish needed more than just a bit of salt, pepper, and olive oil. I’m sure… Read More Egg in an avocado
Yesterday was rough. Fun, but rough. Also, avoiding everything on the list of stuff Jasmine may or may not be sensative to has been less than fun. Lucky for everyone, I am pretty damn creative. For breakfast, I crumbled turkey sausage on top of half of a leftover sweet potato, then drizzled delicious fake maple… Read More WIAW: sleep deprivation edition
I’m only going to talk about the baby on Thursdays. One day a week. That’s my New Year’s Blogging Resolution, and I’m sticking to it. Except that having a baby has affected every part of my life, and sometimes it’s damn hard to talk about anything else without talking about her. Like food. Baby J*… Read More On (not calorie) restricted eating, for a good cause
Moving to DC without a car has been marvelous. We walk everywhere! Including the closest grocery store, which is a mile away. Oh, Harris Teeter, you are wonderful, but how can you possibly not carry rice vinegar? When my husband and I lived in Benin, we were broke-ass cheap-asses. We agonized over every dollar spent… Read More Grocery dilemma. Where to shop in NoVa and DC without a car?
I stopped blogging on my food blog when I found out that I’m pregnant. Six months in, I’m back in the States, enjoying DC as a foodie city, cooking up a storm, and wondering why I ever left! There are a lot of reasons, actually, mostly having to do with Judgey McJudge Judgers. You know, those… Read More Hi, my name is Theresa, and I am back!
Turns out, cooking split red lentils has nothing in common with cooking regular brown lentils. Or maybe I just buy a lot of stale brown lentils. After soaking the red lentils in water for an hour, I put them on the stove. I think they were done even before the water boiled. So now I’ve… Read More Lentil loaf
