This is my Central California blog dedicated to showcasing local farms, farmers market cooking, and the uniqueness of California agriculture in a Paleo lifestyle, while emphasizing simple, gorgeous foods.
I am a government employee by day, food enthusiast by night. My blog is “for the servantless American (Paleo) cook!” with inspiration from the delightful and indubitable Julia Child.
If I ever took the time to write my own motto, it would go something like this:
My Paleo blog is “for the servantless American cook who can be unconcerned on occasion with budgets, waistlines, time schedules, children’s meals, the parent-chauffeur-den mother syndrome or anything else which might interfere with the enjoyment of producing something wonderful to eat.”
In other words, EAT ALL THE BUTTER and MEAT and FAT!
Drastically changed my life, habits, and the way I cook for myself and my family. Eating as clean as possible, and enjoying local California and its agriculture in all I do. Bringing the local farmer to my table, one recipe, one crazy idea, and one blog post at a time. I’ll show you how we eat as “close-to-the-earth” as possible, with a mix of Paleo (me), semi-Paleo (hubby and kids), grain-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, raw dairy, and dairy-free fusion, all from my crazy brain and local farmers, farmers markets, and local businesses, as much as possible.
I love food. It’s pretty simple. It’s what first made me fat, then it was what made me lose weight. What you eat, and how you eat it, determines a lot of the aspects of your life. I finally have tuned in to how my body functions and how to make it more efficient. I have a long way to go, but I’m on a roll. I’ve changed my ways and feel amazing. I find great pleasure in creating things that make myself, my family, and others happy. I love to write, cook, bake, craft, design, read, exercise, hike, camp, cycle, garden, and spend time with my family.
