Gluten free lemon cheesecake bars

Sometimes you have to treat yourself and when you do, there are healthier options than a slice of marbled cake and two scoops of ice cream drizzled with chocolate and caramel sauce. It’s going to taste good but it’s only going to feel good while it’s going down. After that, you get to spend 30 minutes to…

Disclaimer: not 100% Paleo

To say one consumes 100% Paleo diet means they do not eat anything deriving from: dairy (that includes cheese (sad face)) grains legumes nightshade vegetables eggs refined and processed sugars nuts seeds coffee (Juliet is having coffee and everyone that lives/works with her is happy that she does) chocolate pseudo grains refined and/or processed oils Recipes…

Gluten free pizza pairs perfect with Type 1 Diabetes

This past fall marked one year that my son Jonathan (23 years old), was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Although hard to believe, instead of sitting around and dwelling on it, with the help of nurse educators and the internet, he, his now wife, Savannah and the rest of his support team, got educated. He and…

How prevalent are GMOs?

Not everyone knows what genetically modified organisms are, much less how common they are in our everyday foods. While I knew +95% of corn contained GMOs, I was not aware (although not surprised) that 75% of all non-organic U.S. processed foods contained genetically modified ingredients. True story according to an article (Wholesome & Delicious) in…

Ground venison

We were blessed with a little over 110 pounds of venison this year. While I don’t celebrate the actual harvest, I do give thanks and am very grateful for what God allows us to have. Not only does it save money, it’s harvested ethically and it’s an animal that hasn’t lived life on a filthy…

Yopi!

My daughter, Ashley is a yoga enthusiast. As I watch her practice and see her challenge posts, my mind gravitates to the beauty and grace contained within her. How can this be the same lanky soccer player that kept me in stitches with the “Elaine dance”?   Now she’s a mommy and a lean, mean,…

When you stray from Paleo…

The absence of gluten makes Paleo a positive thing for me. After eating gluten-free (way before Paleo), I had significant improvement in my morning stiffness, neck/joint pain and allergies. I’ve tested negative for celiac and celiac sprue so it’s kind of befuddling. At any rate, I can tell you what I experience when I do eat gluten after being…

Popular “gluten-free” magazine disappoints

A recent trip to the grocery store proved to be an eye-opener. Is it just me, or does anyone else ‘get’ what’s wrong with this cover? One of the feature articles concerns the safety of oats, while the cover promotes ingesting petroleum. While the objective of Gluten-Free Living is to provide information, recipes and healthy alternatives for gluten-free, it just…

Paleo & Juliet, about the name…

Paleo and Juliet – it’s a catchy name. My daughter came up with it. I liked it and thought it’d be a perfect fit. Paleo is for Paleo and Juliet, well, it’s for everything else! There’s too much that goes on in life for me to focus strictly on Paleo (in case I haven’t mentioned, we…

Granola replacement

I’m a pretty decent cook, but when it comes to cookies, I have to pass the torch to my daughter, Ashley. For some reason, I’ve always had issues making cookies – but it doesn’t keep me from trying. When my husband asked for some oatmeal coconut cookies, I dug through some recipes online and found…

The house with the blue door

For the most part, my drive to work is a rural one. Along the way is a little house, older but well-kept. If it were anywhere else it might not stand out so much. I’ve seen houses with pink accents, teal, red…..all colors, including blue. This house has a blue door and for some reason stands out…

For the love of food!

Welcome to Paleo and Juliet, the perfect union of food and health! Whether you’re new to Paleo or seasoned Paleolithic, our hope is to share ideas, information, recipes and resources to help you with your journey and share ideas on other things non-Paleo. Initially, our relationship with Paleo was very short, resulting in a breakup. The problem? We didn’t…
