Recent things I think you should know about...recipes and podcasts

I just wanted to pop in for a minute to share a few things that I think you should know about. First, I'm including two recipes that I've tried recently that need to be made by you VERY soon! Neither of them are mine (nor are the pictures), but I just had to share them because we loved them so much. The first is this butternut squash orecchiette pasta from Pinch of Yum.   I used broccoli instead of broccolini, added chopped ham for protein, and didn't finish it off with lemon. Oh. My. Gosh. It was so creamy and delicious. I'm making it again next week....

 
 

The second recipe is for chocolate chip cookies from Texanerin. For the longest time, I wouldn't try a recipe if it said "paleo." I'm not a fan of food bandwagons (or diet labels), so I typically stay away from them for a long time (I'm looking at you coconut oil!). BUT YOU GUYS!! These paleo chocolate chip cookies are bomb. Seriously. Super chewy and delicious. I think they are Isaac and I's favorite recipe we've had. They are that good. I've made them twice in the span of a week. Just an FYI, the cookies turn out HUGE. I halved the recipe and made 2 more cookies than she suggested and they were still massive. But I'm not complaining 😉.

Second thing I wanted to pop in to tell you was that I had the privilege of being in another podcast. I talked with Paige Smathers of the Nutrition Matters podcast about my past history with food and how to balance gentle nutrition with eating what you are craving. We talk about what health really is and how to pursue it in a balanced way. I would love to hear what you think of it!

 
I bought those pink beauts just for the podcast :-D
