It was a game changer moment when I discovered the Hotlogic mini oven. I love this little device. It is a compact lunch bag with a heating element at the bottom. You plug it in and it heats your food in about 1-2 hours depending on the food’s starting temperature. I tend to bring my food to work frozen since I have concerns about histamine levels, so my heat time is on the longer end of that range. You can even cook food from raw which can be handy for travel. I love bringing it on vacation for airport or hotel meals. My husband uses his to heat dehydrated trail meals and oatmeal when he travels. I even used it for a road trip where I brought meals for the entire trip on dry ice, see my blog post here. There is a car adapter so you can heat while you drive and in some car models even with the engine off. Many of my instagram followers and work colleagues have jumped on this bandwagon and all have given it rave reviews.
So ditch the microwave and treat yourself to a Hotlogic mini! It makes a great gift! You can always use my affiliate code Paleogirl99 to save 20%.

If, like me, you are very careful about what food you put in your body, you should be equally careful about what pan you put your food in! Years ago I ditched all teflon non-stick pans and migrated to stainless and cast iron. Once I discovered Solidteknics pans they became my favorite go to every day pans! They actually live on my stovetop. I don’t even put them away because they get used that much. Here is why I love them. Continue reading →
In 2013 I discovered the autoimmune protocol and started a long journey of tremendous gut healing. It was all about REMOVING/EXCLUDING inflammatory foods and allowing my body to repair and restore my gut lining. I benefited a great deal from following that protocol for a number of years, perhaps lingering longer than I needed to, but eventually working in a fair number of reintroductions. There are still foods I avoid like nightshades and lectins. But currently I am moving in to a phase where I am intentionally INCLUDING new superfoods to feed my microbiome Continue reading →
I have had the Breville Sous Chef 12 for about a month now and I am really happy with it. Just about everything I didn’t like about the Cuisinart Pro Custom 11 it replaced is solved by this Breville model. Here is why I love it. Continue reading →
I cleaned up all of my home, hair and body care products a few years ago to reduce my overall toxin load and I am so happy to report that I continue to find products I like BETTER than the ones I used to use. Last year after Continue reading →
WOW. I cannot believe it has taken me this long to write about my beloved Sauna Space near infrared sauna! I bought it on Black Friday in 2019 and it has become part of my “can’t live without” routine. As someone with several SNPs that limit my detoxification pathways, my body needs a little nudge to release toxins. Infrared sauna is a gentle Continue reading →
I get DMs on instagram asking me for my coupon codes and affiliate links so I thought I would just park them all here in a blog post and keep it up to date with whatever new comes along. If you find one is not working please email or DM me on instagram and I will try to fix it. Deal? Here goes! Continue reading →
It has been quite a LONG time since I had coffee. I went on the autoimmune protocol (AIP) in 2013 and coffee went away along with nightshades and a bunch of other things. Although I am not strictly autoimmune protocol any longer, nor even strictly paleo for that matter having done several successful reintroductions, I have not yet attempted to reintroduce coffee and not sure I really want to. Much of the world’s supply of coffee is contaminated with Continue reading →
Since reintroducing soaked and pressure cooked beans in the last year prepping hummus has become part of my weekly food prep routine. I use the liquid from the canned garbanzos called aquafaba for both the hummus and for making aquafaba mayo. Here is how I make both. Continue reading →
