I have been missing in action and haven’t blogged for over a month….yikes!  A lot is going on in my already crazy world.  If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen I was in Hong Kong in mid-May….but I didn’t tell anyone why.  Well, here it goes…. I have gone back to work!  After taking 2 years off to write the cookbooks and pursuing more things with the blog I have decided to head back to work.  It was a hard decision but in the end it made the most sense for me and my family.  It doesn’t mean I’m giving up on blogging but it does mean I may not be blogging and sharing recipes as much.  Then again, this year I haven’t been great on posting recipes so maybe I will actually be better.  Ha!  I have tons of recipes in the queue so hopefully I can get them up so you can all enjoy on a timely manner.  First up is this recipe for some ice cream since it is summer and so darn hot!  And let’s face it, we all deserve a little cold treat every now and then too!  My kids especially like this ice cream due to the purple hue that the blueberries give it.  I like it because it’s not loaded with added sugars like most grocery store ice creams!

Before I leave you I want to give a big thank you to some fabulous bloggers who have done great reviews of my new cookbook, Powerful Paleo Superfoods.  You can read their reviews of the book on their blogs.

Other exciting news, I heard from a reader that my new cookbook can be found in some Costco stores too!  I’m waiting to hear which stores but this was exciting news!

Now for some yummy ice cream….


Banana Blueberry Coconut Ice Cream with Coconut Crumble

Banana Blueberry Coconut Ice Cream with Coconut Crumble

Homemade ice cream is firmer than store-bought ice cream because store-bought is made with granulated white sugar, fat, stabilizers and additives, and because it can’t be churned as heavily as commercial ice cream. To serve, simply allow the ice cream to soften on the counter for about five minutes, until it’s scoop-able.


  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 ½ cups canned coconut milk
  • 1 ½ cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed (about ½ cup)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • Seeds of 1 vanilla been, pod discarded
  • Coconut Crumble
  • 1/3 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped pecans and almonds (or nut of choice)
  • ½ cup unsweetened medium shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut butter or coconut cream


  1. To prepare ice cream: In a food processor, add all ice cream ingredients. Puree until just combined, about 2 minutes, stopping processor every 30 seconds to scrape down sides of bowl with rubber spatula.
  2. Transfer mixture to a sauce pan and bring to a low boil while whisking.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool. Strain mixture in a medium bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. Chill mixture in refrigerator for 2 hours.
  4. Place mixture in an ice cream maker, and run until desired consistency is reached.
  5. To make crumble: Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, nuts, coconut, cinnamon, baking soda, and sea salt. Add coconut butter and use your fingers or fork to incorporate butter into mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in coconut milk and vanilla extract until just combined and mixture forms a loose dough.
  6. Scatter dough into an 8x8-inch baking dish, pressing lightly into bottom of dish. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool completely, and then crumble into small pieces.
  7. To serve, allow ice cream to soften to room temperature for about 5 minutes. Scoop ½ cup ice cream into each bowl and top with 3 tablespoon crumble and, if desired ¼ cup blueberries.

Super excited about today’s post!  Let me introduce you to Yawp! Bars!  These delicious bars are made with organic ingredients and a very minimal amount of dates (just one date per bar to help hold things together), YAWP! Bars are super crisp, and more nutty than sweet.  They get a thumbs up from not only me but my whole family!  Our favorites were the NAKED and the COCONUT CHAI. But let me tell you some of the other reasons why we loved these bars….



Look at the ingredients in these bars!  All YAWP! Bars are made with organic ingredients: almonds, deget noor dates from California, peptitas, sunflower seeds, black sesame seeds, cinnamon, and Himalayan salt. The Café Mocha flavor also includes organic coffee, cocoa powder, and vanilla bean. Nothing like eating REAL FOOD!



One bar is 198 calories comprised of 15 grams of fat, 7 grams of protein, and only 12 grams of carbohydrates (which makes them roughly 65% fat, 14% protein, 24% carbohydrates) — really good for a snack bar. 


It’s hard to find a tasty paleo bar to satisfy the “crunch”.  Look no further because YAWP! Bars have done it!  Their bars are dehydrated for 8 hours, so they have the same texture as old school granola bars — crunchy! — without the problematic grains of course. YAWP! Bars are mildly sweet and make a fantastic afternoon snack. I’ve also been known to eat half a bar before my workout, just to get my metabolism humming, and on our recent vacationing adventures.  I also have a few YAWP! Bars to take along with me on my upcoming 16 hour plane ride to Asia, the perfect travel snack.


Now for the fun part…..


One (1) lucky random winner (in USA only…sorry) will win a case of 12 YAWP! Bars (4 of each flavor).

How to enter: Like YAWP! Bars on Facebook — then come back here and post to comments that you did it and share which flavor you are excited to try first!(If you don’t use Facebook, just leave a comment below to be entered in the drawing.)

Deadline: The deadline to enter is 12:01 a.m. EST on Monday, May 12th , 2014. I’ll choose a random winner from the comments on this blog post and announce the winner on Tuesday, May 13th.

The new cookbook HERE!!  It is official…Powerful Paleo Superfoods is on the shelves!!  If you want to learn more about what is in the inside of my new cookbook you can read my post called Inside Look.  There I dig a little deeper into what you will find on the pages within the book.  I’m really excited about this book and can’t wait for you to get your hands on it.  Want to know where to order?  Take a look below for the best places to find the new cookbook.

Where to Preorder Powerful Paleo Superfoods

Now for some fun!  Today I am sharing a recipe from the new cookbook.  With strawberries in season I thought it would be the perfect refreshing recipe to share.  This recipe is one of my favorites from the book because it’s a nice change from traditional salsa. You can add it to chicken, fish, or as a stand alone and it gives a dish something a little something special.  Strawberries are a favorite in my house as are avocado’s.  Did you know that strawberries have high levels of vitamin C, making them a natural immune booster, and avocados supply anti-inflammatory polyphenols and flavonoids. If you haven’t tried the combination of these powerhouses together, this sweet and savory salsa will win you over.


Strawberry Avocado Salsa with Simply Grilled Chicken

Serving Size: 4

Strawberry Avocado Salsa with Simply Grilled Chicken

Strawberries have high levels of vitamin C, making them a natural immune booster, and avocados supply anti-inflammatory polyphenols and flavonoids. If you haven’t tried the combination of these powerhouses together, this sweet and savory salsa will win you over.


  • 1 cup strawberries, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup avocado, peeled and finely cubed
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped (or basil)
  • 1 tablespoon red onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and gently toss to combine. Serve immediately over prepared chicken (or protein of choice).


To Make Simply Grilled Chicken: Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Drizzle 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil each and then season with salt and pepper (or seasoning of choice). Grill the chicken until cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Let stand 5 minutes.

Don’t forget to get your copy of my new cookbook, Powerful Paleo Superfoods where you will find 60+ recipes plus a deeper look in the superhero foods of paleo.




Today, I am so excited to share with you a project that commanded much of my time developing, testing, cooking, styling, shooting, editing, research and writing 65+ recipes behind the scenes. And finally, a year later, lots of lost hours of sleep, and mountains of dishes later, my second cookbook is available for preorderPowerful Paleo SuperfoodsAnd will be published on May 1st 2014.

Powerful Paleo Superfoods is the healthy reader’s essential guide to getting the best out of the primal diet with the help of the top 50 Paleo-approved Superfoods – including power proteins, super fats, fruits, greens, and vegetables. Perfect for Paleo beginners or the Paleo-curious, this new cookbook lets readers integrate key foods and delicious recipes into their diets without the pressure of trying to understand a whole “plan” or adopt a lifestyle shift straight out of the gate.


Inside Powerful Paleo Superfoods

Inside, I will guide you through the top 50 Paleo Superfoods from power proteins like wild salmon and locally pastured beef to super fats and Paleo-approved fruits, veggies, and nuts and seeds while providing nutritional data throughout. POWERFUL PALEO SUPERFOODS will quickly become the essential guide to living the best, most nutritious life possible… the Paleo way.

The book contains about 65+ recipes – and, with the exception of just a handful of recipes, these are new recipes, not published on the site, that have been developed specifically for the cookbook.  Recipes like Blackberry-Glazed Salmon, Super Green Smoothie, Southwestern Beef and Pepper Medley, Cauliflower “Couscous” Veggie Salad, Four Berry and Mint Salad with Coconut Whipped Cream, and Mexican Chocolate Walnut Snack Bars.

They’re special recipes, but simple, and all show appreciation of nutrient-dense real foods.

And now, I want to share with you a little of what I have been working on with some of the images from the cookbook.
