There was a time when we thought we'd never have another caramel anything, let alone a caramel apple. Thanks to our friends at Sweet Laurel, we're enjoying the caramel apples from our childhood once more! I was a caramel apple fiend as a kid, and honestly, that never really left me.

2018-10-09T14:34:02+00:00 October 9th, 2018|Clean Eats, Clean Reads, Nutrition, Recipes, Sustainability + Earth Care|

One Texas baker thinks so. Revered by Native populations, the scorn of farmers and cattle ranchers, and then later commercialized for use in BBQ– Mesquite has remained an underutilized plant, but that may not be for much longer. Inspired by it's versatility, availability, and nutrient and flavor-rich profile one Texas baker thinks there's more to [...]

As soon as the calendar shifted from August to September, we have to admit there's a little longing for our old lives... including that oh so familiar Pumpkin Spice Latte. But the reality is, we don't need it, and once we found out what was in it, we decided to kiss it good-bye for [...]

WTF is Purslane? | The Superfood You’ve Been Mistaking For A Weed

2018-08-03T09:58:24+00:00 August 2nd, 2018|Clean Eats, Clean Reads, Recipes, Spring Recipes, Summer Recipes|

Purslane, a fairly ubiquitous weed, has recently been heralded as one of the most nutrient dense greens on the planet. Incredibly high in omega 3s, iron, and beta carotene, it's a powerhouse of a plant that– wait for it– actually tastes good. I can still remember the day I realized that the weed I'd [...]

Beef jerky could be a perfect Paleo snack (and we're big fans of Epic Bars), but many of the jerkies on the market have way too much sugar for our comfort (not to mention other no-no's in the seasonings, like soy sauce and gluten-laced MSG). For people who eat halal as well as Paleo, there are [...]

Barely Bread Is Actually A Lot Like The Real Thing

2018-06-28T13:25:26+00:00 June 28th, 2018|Clean Eats, Clean Made LA, Nutrition|

We've tried them all. All of those brands of gluten-free breads. Or maybe we should call them "breads." We've tried them and they made us feel sad. Hard, cakey, mealy, bland, crumbly. The different brands each have their own issues, but collectively, they were all a little hard to swallow. It actually took a lot of [...]

That’s why we were absolutely elated to stumbled on this post from nomnompaleo. Blogger and home chef Michelle Tan gives us [...]
