Let's get real for a second. One of the most difficult things to overcome in our clean food journeys has been forgetting to pack snacks or adequately plan meals when leaving the house for the day. The results have been (*ahem*) trying, to say the least. We've found ourselves staring sadly at one another [...]

Michael Kuech thought he was doing everything right. He was 24 years old, he was in business school. He was training to become a professional tennis player. He thought he was treating his body in a way to support his endeavors and to produce optimal results. Then he got cancer. Kristel DeGroot had met Michael on the [...]

Bars are big business so by now you've probably tried most of the ones on the market (and probably a whole bunch that eventually fell by the wayside, too). That's kind of the way we felt about the bar brouhaha, too...until we met R.e.d.d. See, unlike most of the energy bars that come across our desk [...]

If You Aren’t Miserable, You’re Probably Not In Ketosis

2018-07-24T14:24:34+00:00 July 7th, 2018|Brain Health, Clean Eats, Clean Living, Clean Reads, Nutrition|

...Or at least that's the conclusion Sara Chodosh has come to, in her article, Sorry, Keto fans, you're probably not in ketosis. It's just too hard, she argues in her piece for Popular Science. Unless it's brutal, you're probably not doing it right. The reason for this is the diet's 80 - 90 percent necessary fat [...]

We're lucky to live during a time when we have so many food options. We can go into most grocery stores -- anywhere in the country! -- and cobble together enough ingredients to make an allergen-friendly feast. Speaking personally, we couldn't even say that five years ago, outside of straight-up meat and veg. On the internet, [...]

Pasadena’s Bone Kettle Restaurant & A Recipe For Bone Broth

We've been drinking bone broth for years. Although, truly, if you want to get technical about it, we've been eating it for decades, because we grew up on soups of all sorts, most of them divined -- alchemical-style -- out of a pot full of water, some vegetables, and a big pile of bones. Bone broths [...]

We love protein drinks. We mix collagen protein powder into our coffee to start the day with some skin food and a boost of extra nutrition in the morning. It's our post-workout BFF (best fuel forever). Sometimes we turn to protein drinks instead of reaching for a naughty sweet snack in the late afternoon. Protein drinks [...]

2018-06-26T22:44:18+00:00 June 30th, 2018|Clean Eats, Clean Living, Clean Reads, Nutrition, Self Care|

Over the past month we’ve discussed a lot of aspects of the Autoimmune Protocol, including why to try it, how it differs from other Paleo-type diets, ways to make life on AIP a little easier, and offered a whole bunch of recipes to ensure the AIP diet will be as delicious as can be. But the [...]

2018-06-26T22:46:56+00:00 June 29th, 2018|Clean Eats, Clean Living, Nutrition|

It’s usually a huge transition to shift your eating habits, especially when you’re making the kinds of changes we talk about on this site. No more dairy? Grain? Sugar? Coffee??? The list of permissible foods varies by ailment, but what's true across the board is, when you're starting a restricted diet, it can be hard [...]
