HOW I WENT LOW CARB…

… and where did it take me? I was never a fan of too much restriction, when it comes to diet. I never “dieted” before, like some people do, before I found paleo, I never tried any “fat-loss” things, shakes, pills… I didn’t go paleo to loose weight, I did it to gain HEALTH, which, …

#LIFE2

Who are we to argue with life’s intentions? We don’t choose our lives, but we can decide how we deal with what it has to offer to us. We do not master our own fate, but we for sure are in control of how we are gonna live it. If we let ourselves crush under …

CHANGES AND COMPROMISES

There is white sugar in my kitchen right now. Also, there is a box of wheat grits in my kitchen right now. And I am pretty sure there is a box of regular store bought milk somewhere, or at least it was last time I was in there. There is a confession I have to …

#LIFE

Life is full of ups and downs. Life is full of unexpected twists. Life never waits until you are ready, it just throws you under the bus when you think you are doing everything right. It gives you lemons just when you really need to take a break. It distracts you when you need to …

FOUND MY CONNECTION

I just had the most amazing spiritual experience ever. I just had to sit down now and write it down while my feelings are still intense, strong and I am over-the-top emotional, which means I can’t talk to anyone till I got it done. I was outside in the back yard, reading a book under …

SEXY BY NATURE: A BOOK REVIEW

I discovered Stefani Ruper, (who I privately call Super Ruper) the author of this amazing book, just a few months ago (6-7) on my search for a non-hormonal birth control. At that time I was on a pill for 14 years and desperately wanted to go off of it. Her posts about birth control and …

EAT THE YOLKS: A BOOK REVIEW

This is my honest review of Eat The Yolks by Liz Wolfe. Liz is a nutritional therapy practitioner, blogger on RealFoodLiz.com (previously CaveGirlEats.com), dedicated homesteader, bad cook (in her own words) and my secret girl crush for quite a while. She is funny, friendly, charming and beautiful, her personality is very similar to mine and …

MY MORROCCO METHOD JOURNAL – FIRST ROTATION

My previous posts on paleo/primal/raw skincare, haircare in posts here, and here. Also check out Liz Wolfe’s skincare blog for WAY MORE. My search for a perfect paleo shampoo seems neverending. Classic no’poo (baking soda + ACV) didn’t seem to work very well (or I was too unpatient to wait over the adjustment period), the Dr. …

MY BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES

I think the time has come to the point where I am really happy and confident with sharing my before and after pictures. I am on my paleo life journey for 3 years now, and a lot of things changed in my life. I evolved from “doing a paleo diet” to “living a paleo lifestyle,” …

PALEO CAFÉ

In the past, coffee for me was not a pleasure, but a way to wake up after a bad night sleep. I started drinking coffee when I was probably 23-24 years old, and it was purely for the caffeine effect. I didn’t like the smell, I hated the taste. I always had a passion for …

LIFE AWARENESS

I was almost hit by a car this morning. Okay, let’s start from the beginning. I walk to and from work every day. The company I work in is situated in the middle of a large sugarbeet field, surrounded with nothing else then other fields. It is between a city Opava and a small village …

SKINCARE UPDATE

Time to give a little update on my skin issues! Not that it would help anyone, but I like to write it down so I can read later, and maybe give some of you ideas on paleo skincare that works for me (which of course does NOT mean it will work for you 100%). In …

THE PALEO COACH – BOOK REVIEW

I never rate or review a book before I finish reading it. And I really do not understand all the Amazon reviews on cookbooks that are written like 5 minutes after the book is released (unless you had an advanced copy and in that case I am jealous). I would never give a book a …

THE OFFLINE EXPERIENCE

So I am back. Yay. (sarcasm) Did anyone miss me? :) To be absolutely honest, it was the BEST WEEK EVER. It was just like the old times – no Facebook, no youtube, no nothing. I did deal with some e-mailing, which was necessary (to make longer story short, DPD driver stole my package with …

DISCONNECTED – THE EXPERIMENT

Do you remember life before internet? As a daughter of an IT guy (yeah, my dad is kinda like a less funny version of Roy from IT Crowd) I have to say that I do NOT. I don’t even remember life without computers in general, which is pretty sad, considering that I will be 30 …

BEEF HEART STEW

 Here we come with another recipe :) As you may know, I received Gather cookbook a while ago, and only tried two basic “recipes” (Deviled Eggs and Cucumber Salmon Bites). I really wanna give this book a good review on Amazon but I honestly can’t do it before properly trying at least a few recipes, …
