Gluten-Free

What happens when you hit a patch of stress during a Whole30? If you’re me, you stick with the program, but neglect your Whole30 food journal. Not a bad compromise, really. I’m now on day 22 of the program and feeling great. In fact, the veggies+protein+fat+fruit routine feels much more familiar to me now than [...]

Easy Chili-Lime Chicken Marinade

by Angie Anew on July 16, 2012

Anyone else having a relaxing summer? So relaxing, in fact, that you’ve lost sight of your healthy eating goals? Me too! But now, after overindulging during our annual summer trip to the cabin, I’m getting back on track… at least until our next vacation. This week, I made an extremely easy chili-lime chicken marinade to [...]

Gluten Free Cooking Class at Cooks of Crocus Hill

by Angie Anew on March 15, 2012

Earlier this month, I attended a gluten-free cooking class at Cooks of Crocus Hill. It was a Christmas gift from my parents to me, my hubby, my brother and his wife (who also eats gluten-free). The class took place just a few hours after we returned home from our adventure in Wisconsin Dells. Let me [...]

Gluten-Free in Wisconsin Dells

by Angie Anew on March 3, 2012

My family just returned from a trip to Wisconsin Dells — the self-proclaimed “Waterpark Capitol of World!” We had a fabulous time. Our resort — Wilderness Territory — was a kid paradise, with three water parks, a mini golf course, a couple of indoor arcades, a large indoor play area and more. But the food? The food [...]

Crispy Chicken Legs

by Angie Anew on February 21, 2012

Crispy chicken skin. Not my favorite food, but pretty darn close. Lately, I’ve been buying chicken legs (super cheap!) and roasting them on high heat for some serious crispy chicken goodness. I follow a simple recipe from Chaos in the Kitchen. It’s more of a method than a recipe, really, but I’m sharing it because [...]

Super Simple Bacon-Wrapped Dates

by Angie Anew on February 20, 2012

Last night I was craving something good. Something really good. Then I remembered a post on a blog I follow called A Nutritionist Eats. The author recently wrote about goat-cheese stuffed bacon-wrapped dates. Wow! While I’m not eating much dairy lately, I usually have bacon and dates on hand. So I made a simpler version. [...]

Slow-Cooker Red Wine Braised Short Ribs for Two

by Angie Anew on February 13, 2012

To say that the members of my family have divergent food preferences would be an understatement. I prefer to eat low-carb and gluten-free. My husband avoids beef and pork, but eats chicken and fish. My older son is a lacto-carbotarian. And the baby? He’ll eat anything. So when I say that these slow-cooker red wine [...]

Clarified Butter

by Angie Anew on February 6, 2012

Today, I replenished my supply of clarified butter. When I posted a snapshot of my activities on Facebook, one of my cousins wanted to know more. Why make clarified butter? And how do you do it? I started making clarified butter while on the Whole30. Regular butter is a no-no on the plan due to [...]

Twenty-two days! That’s how long I’ve gone without sugar, grains, dairy, legumes and processed foods. But let’s not focus on the withouts. The past few weeks of my Whole30 journey have been filled with leafy greens, vegetables, fruits, healthy fats and lean (and not-so-lean) meats. How’s it going? Well, my guess is that I’ll have [...]

Cuban-Style Pork Shoulder

by Angie Anew on January 22, 2012

Yesterday, we attended a large extended family gathering — a potential landmine for sticking to my Whole30 challenge. To ensure that I had something tasty to eat, I made Cuban-style pork shoulder from a Los Angeles Times recipe. The recipe calls for hefty amounts of garlic, spices, herbs and orange zest. When mixed with fresh [...]
