Paleo Bison Chili Recipe

Paleo Bison Chili With Tri-Color Peppers (Gluten-Free) Recipe

I have only had bison once in my life and it was a stew that I created. My little family of 3 was so pleased with it so I decided that this week I would purchase a package of organic ground bison from Kroger and create a chili with it. I also wanted this chili to be paleo so there are no beans in this chili and it is gluten-free as well. One of the highlights is that is does have three colors of bell peppers in it: red, orange, and yellow. I love a chili that is chockful of peppers! My chili just has to have peppers in it. I also had a chili seasoning packet from Spice Miser and I decided I would give that a whirl this week too. Spice Miser never disappoints. I picked up that spice packet on my last trip to Eastern Market.

Amped Up Grilled Cheese RECIPE With Dave’s Killer Bread & Tomato Soup

I don't usually purchase loaves of bread (been trying to keep the carbs down low) but Dave's Killer Bread is the most beautiful bread I have every laid my eyes upon. Seriously... bread... beautiful??? Trust me on this guys. I am also a firm believer in #noboringgrilledcheese. I made up that hashtag by the way. I can't use a boring white loaf of bread and that plastic-like American cheese. I guess I am a grilled cheese snob. Call me what you will!

I went with the 21 Whole Grains & Seeds loaf. Dave's Killer Bread uses all organic ingredients. This particular loaf has 5 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, omega 3s, and a huge assortment of whole grains all jam packed into one slice.

Why You Should Give It A Whirl TODAY

I was not always this way. I created a lot of routines in my life and my life was beginning to feel so mediocre. Today I live life for the experience of trying out new and different things. I would definitely slap the label of “foodie” right across my forehead. I am in a committed relationship with food. Trying out new foods injects a ton of happiness and joy into my life.

What is a foodie?

A foodie is a person who is very passionate about food. It is more than just having a love for food. It is about the experience of savoring unique flavors and exploring what the world has to offer. Every single day new foods are hitting the market. On each of those days I am scouring the web and admiring them and wishing I could just get them down into my belly! A foodie has a strong, genuine interest in food and experiencing food is a hobby to them. There really are no requirements to being a foodie. There are several definitions of what it takes to be a foodie online but I feel that if you have that passion and desire about food then that is all that it takes to be a foodie. read more

Realgood Pizza is really really good! For real!

I think it is safe to say that everyone LOVES pizza! Pizza is a universal food and so versatile. There are so many way to construct a great, tasty one! I discovered Realgood pizza recently and after flipping over the box and analyzing the nutrition facts I was sold! That big black dot that says, "guilt free" was enough to get me on board. Realgood pizzas are high in protein, low in carbohydrates, and grain-free (gluten-free). If you are on a keto diet I highly suggest giving these a whirl.

Showcasing a little bit of my cooking skills

I have been cooking for a few years now but I really did not fall in love with it until last year when I began my weight loss journey. For awhile there pretty much anything passed as a meal... processed foods, loads of carbs, etc. I started falling into the trap of blaming my medication for weight gain. Until I changed my eating habits I realized I was dead wrong. I was the one to blame for my weight gain. I had been a skinny girl my whole life and when I plumped up I felt like I was in a foreign body of some sort. I realized I needed to make changes and amp up my recipes to pave the way for a healthier lifestyle.
