Snap Kitchen Review (Part 2)

Discovering Snap Kitchen in Philadelphia was definitely the highlight of my trip to the historic city. Snap Kitchen is an Austin, TX export whose first foray into the east cost is Philly, with (hopefully) more locations coming soon to the mid-Atlantic (namely D.C. and/or Baltimore). The concept is simple and truly genius, because Snap Kitchen is a perfect merging of a supermarket and and a restaurant, promising top quality fare […]

Snap Kitchen Review (Part 1)

As a busier than ever college student tackling classwork, internship, and working this summer, my free time has been dramatically reduced, leaving little time to eat out or cook from scratch. Most days, I rely on microwave-friendly fare, which rightly has not earned a reputation for health or taste value.  However, while in Philadelphia, I stumbled across Snap Kitchen, an Austin, TX export that recently set up their first East Coast locale […]

Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers Review

I already count myself as a super fan of Simple Mills. Their line of paleo-friendly, gluten-free, grain-free baking mixes make clean eating effortlessly delicious. Recently, they expanded their product line to include almond flour crackers, which totally had me biting at the bit to give them a try.  What’s really cool about these new crackers is that they were crafted with care to be both delicious and good-for-you, as the company’s […]

Paleo Pumpkin Pie Recipe

This time of year is my very favorite in terms of seasonal flavors. Pumpkin, apples, spices, and other fall-inspired flavors surround us and make the onset of winter weather a little less intimidating.  Although I totally do not mind splurging on pumpkin pies from local bakeries, I definitely do not have the budget to buy them at the rate I wish I could. Realizing that my only alternative was to learn how to […]

Nutty Crunch Review (Paleo/Grain-Free)

Right off the bat, I will admit that I am not the biggest fan of granola. My breakfast usually consists of cereal, bagels, or simply fruit and nut butter. However, a recent trip to the Lake Eola Farmer’s Market changed my mind, as I discovered a vendor I had not seen before: Nutty Crunch.  Offering gluten-free, grain-free, paleo granola, I was drawn in by the prospect of a healthy paleo […]

Simple Mills Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo Muffin Mix and Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix Review

In my journey into paleo-friendly baking, I’ve become comfortable with simple almond-flour based recipes with few ingredients. While these have been easy enough, my plunge into a super busy second semester had me dreaming of a paleo-friendly mix to streamline my frequent baking for breakfast and between-class snacks.  Enter Simple Mills, a company passionate about clean, healthy baking that also happens to be allergen-friendly and as tasty as they are […]

Easy Paleo Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins

Normally one to avoid sweets as I easily get debilitating sugar headaches when I eat too much, my recent surge of eating cookies, pies, and other treats this holiday season has rendered my sweet tooth a little out of control.  Now that the festivities and frivolities of the holidays have come and gone, I join the millions of other people who resolve to eat, live, and just be better in […]
