Butter Beware: Shannon Gold

Could they make it anymore obvious?

One of the nice things about living in a (semi) market economy is that as the Paleo lifestyle increases in popularity, producers respond by selling more and more paleo products to capture our hard earned dollars. Many of these (such as Epic Bison Bars) are delicious, high quality products that try to win our money…

Gluten Free Sausage Bites

Sausage Bites

Super Bowl XLIX is nearly upon us. And Super Bowls mean Super Bowl Parties and abundant temptation from a bevy of (likely) non-paleo approved snacks. The following recipe isn’t exactly paleo, so it isn’t for strict paleo folks. But it is primal blueprint approved and gluten free. It is also easy to make and transport,…

Wild Planet White Anchovies in Extra Virgin Olive Oil Review

Anchovies, Wild Planet

When most people think of anchovies, they think of the tiny little fileted salt bombs you find in the supermarket that are used to add a salty bite to pizza and Caesar salads. Eaten on their own, the taste would best be described as fishy salt mush. This is a shame, because as a small…

King Oscar Cross Pack Sardines Review

King Oscar Cross Pack

King Oscar Sardines date back to 1902 when King Oscar II of Sweden and Norway gave the company “special permission” to use his name on their product. Oscar II was actually the last “Swedish” King of Norway. Just three years after giving the King Oscar brand his name the Norwegian Storting voted to dissolve the…

Bacon Brussels Spouts

Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts were probably my least favorite vegetable growing up. I wasn’t alone in this sentiment. A study commissioned by Heinz found brussels sprouts to be America’s most hated vegetable and a study out of the UK had a similar finding. But the bad rep was underserved. It took going paleo for me to realize…
