Roasted Strawberry-Rhubarb Salsa Chicken (Whole30, Keto, Paleo)

Rhubarb Season  Every year when rhubarb season rolls around my Instagram feed fills will all sorts of red confections. I must admit, I don’t get why it’s so popular to bake with. I mean, most recipes contain a few buckets of sugar to compensate for the naturally tart flavor of the rhubarb. Granted I also lack the cultural connection to baking with rhubarb, growing up first generation american in a city submerged in Latin culture… I never even heard of rhubarb until I moved to the west coast. I recall…

Arroz Con Pollo (AIP, Whole30, Paleo, Keto)

Fiesta! Growing up our house was always the family hub. Maybe because my mom of her other sister’s was the only one who had more than one kid, and therefore an already bustling household… or because of her love of hosting, cooking and entertaining. Whatever the reason, our house was the spot. All holiday and major events like baptism’s, graduations and birthdays were celebrated in our home. While all my aunts are talented cooks, each with their own signature dishes and areas of expertise, my mom always had her own…

Grilled Thai Turkey Thighs (paleo, Whole30, low carb)

Grill The Unexpected! Move aside burgers. There’s a new grill staple in town! Living in Hawai’i it’s pretty much grilling season year round, so we like to keep things interesting. Turkey! So many different cuts; tenderloin, wings, breasts, ground, drumsticks! So. Many. Options. I actually had hard time to choosing which cut to highlight for this post for the National Turkey Federation. Turkey tenderloin medallions marinated in coconut aminos, ghee and rosemary, but then my grocer had these sexy looking thighs! If you haven’t checked out the National Turkey Federation’s…

Naked Crispy Chicken Taco (Whole30, Low Carb/Keto, Paleo)

Cinco De Mayo I used to be huge on 5 de Mayo…maybe because it involved a lot of tequila and dancing. What can I say? There was a Senor Frogs in the neighborhood. But really, I spent a lot of time in Mexico as a kid, my grandmother’s best friends from Cuba married a Mexican man and they lived in Guadalajara. We spend several summers visiting them. So I’m quire aware of the fact that 5 de Mayo is  bigger deal in the US. Which is cool. I mean, we…

Egg Roll Up: Bacon, Basil + Greens (Whole30, Paleo, Keto, LCHF)

Not My Genius Idea… But A Genius One None The Less! The first time I saw an egg roll up was from Eat Drink Paleo, and I was in AWE of the simple genius of the idea! The reshaping of whole food ingredients into a hand held, fun, delicious and filling meal… that right there is my jam! Case in point: my paleo sushi rolls. Luckily I always have eggs on hand. Then I just grabbed whatever else was lurking in my fridge. Bacon. Arugula. Oh, Basil! Mayo. A little…

How A Pair of Sandals Saved My Sanity (On Pursuing Goals Outside of Motherhood)

The first ever guest post on TCK! I’ve been very hesitant of letting others share on this space that I created, but when I saw Amanda’s Facebook Live video on my personal feed, I jumped at offering her this platform to share this story. I think it’s so relatable, and has an amazing message. If this community can rally and support Amanda in his selfless cause, it would just make my heart explode with gratitude! I can think of no better purpose for a guest post than to help a…

Cucumber Moscow Mule Mocktail (non-gmo sugar free soda + fresh vegetables )

  Lifestyle Changes and Social Graces When I first began my health journey I always imagined I would one day be “cured” and then I could go back to my old life. I imaged late nights, pizza, wine (too much wine). I day dreamed of bar hopping New York speakeasies and enjoying all the craft cocktails. I bidded my time until the day I could have my favorite ice cream and sugary treats again. I never, ever thought that I would be okay, neigh, FABULOUS without any of it. I…
