Mediterranean Watermelon Salad |

Mediterranean Watermelon Salad

Summer is here and 4th of July is just around the corner—my Mediterranean Watermelon Salad is perfect for both!

I originally made this salad in 2016 for a cookout with friends. I wasn’t sure what the reaction would be (I honestly threw the ingredients together willy-nilly) but everyone enthusiastically gobbled it up. Soon my guests asked for the recipe. For a food blogger, that’s a sure sign you’ve got a winning combo on your hands!

I jotted down what I remembered and vowed to make it again. But autumn came too quickly and I missed the window for summery watermelon recipes. Once summer rolled around this year, I was itching to recreate this recipe.

It’s finally ready for you!


Easy Paleo Peach Barbecue Sauce |

Easy Peach Barbecue Sauce

As soon as the weather started warming up, I knew something like this Easy Peach Barbecue Sauce was going down. I’d never made my own barbecue sauce, but I felt an itch for it.

I picked up my favorite fruit (mangoes) at the grocery store. I had my heart set on mango barbecue sauce (which might still happen), but the the same day someone left a comment on my gym’s members-only Facebook group: Pounds and pounds of peaches at the gym. For free. Take what you like.

With 10+ pounds of peaches in hand the next day, I decided peach barbecue sauce would be just as good!


Chocolate Maca Banana Smoothie |

Chocolate Maca Banana Smoothie

Gotta love a nice and simple smoothie where nearly all the ingredients make the recipe title. That’s what you’ll find in this Chocolate Maca Banana Smoothie. Easy, chocolate-y, super thick satisfaction. Couldn’t ask for anything more in a smoothie!

Whether you drink smoothies on the daily or whip them up when you need a silky, refreshing treat, I bet you’re going to love this one.


One Skillet Paleo Kung Pao Chicken Thighs |

Kung Pao Chicken Thighs

Sweet and spicy Kung Pao Chicken Thighs serve up a heavy dose of flavor in a single skillet! You’ll fall head over heels for this simple paleo recipe that delivers sticky smoldering heat.

We eat chicken thighs at least once a week, especially when we’re trying to save money. Chicken thighs are an inexpensive protein option (way cheaper than chicken breasts) and they’re incredibly versatile. Bone-in thighs are an easy choice for easy meals.

Usually I opt for the dead simple route and make simple crispy cast iron chicken thighs. But since we’ve been eating them so often lately, I’ve had the urge to try something new. Kung Pao chicken thighs were born, and I couldn’t be happier with the results!
