Cook with me! Basic 4 Guacamole
Here's a recipe you will make time and time again because it's:
(1) super simple
(2) cheaper (& way fresher) than the premade, store-bought kind
(3) delicious and nutritious
(4) 21-Day Sugar Detox approved (as long as you are dipping veggies!)
This recipe is a great base. If you decide you want to make a “fancier” version, you can use this recipe as a starting point for any variation you decide to create!
Super Bowl Recipe Round-up
While watching football may or may not be your thing, I know we all want some delicious party food to enjoy this Super Bowl Sunday.
Search no further, I've got a delicious Super Bowl Recipe Roundup to share so you plan a delicious menu!
My Current Strength Training Program
Ohmygosh. I can’t believe the floodgate that I’ve opened by sharing video clips of some of my workouts lately. I think the question about my current workouts has quickly become the #1 thing you all are asking for, so I finally sat down to write this out.
Please know this: the point of this post is not necessarily to have you go sign up for the exact program I am following!
I’m going to give you context here, explain where I came from and how I landed on the program I’m doing now, and all of this matters – a lot!

I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKING… . Diane, I already have that book… How different can it be?! What’s different about it?! Why would I need or want that when I have the original? What’s a second edition anyway? . I have to be honest with you guys, because that’s the only way I can be… I actually re-wrote this entire book. Start-to-finish every word that was in the first book was reconsidered and much of it was re-written and re-organized – and expanded upon – to make it a much better book than it ever was. . It’s not that the original isn’t or wasn’t great, but it truly wasn’t my best anymore. And I always want you to have MY BEST. . You guys ask a lot of great questions all the time – here on IG, on FB, on my blog. And, the truth is that 99.9% of the questions you are asking are answered in this new edition of the book. . To me, it is a BRAND NEW BOOK. Because it took me as long to re-write it as it did to write it in the first place. It’s also entirely re-designed and re-imagined to make the flow and structure much easier to understand. I have re-written everything to answer all of your questions BETTER than I ever did before. There are so many new FAQs in there, you guys would seriously not believe how much pure value I pack into the pages of this book. . There is no fluff, no filler, and barely even any chapter dividers because, heck, they take up valuable page space that I really couldn’t let go of — I had too much REAL content to give you. It’s not a knock at other books AT ALL, but most have at least 20-30 pages of nothingness taken up by dividers — I’m trying to help you see what I mean when I say that this book is SO RICH. . Look, I am NEVER one to tell you that you need to buy anything from me. I am not here to sell you this book, I AM here to empower you regarding your health, nutrition, & life. And, when I tell you that this book is going to help you do just that, I hope that you understand that I mean what I say 100%. . I re-wrote this for YOU. I didn’t make it a new, separate book because I didn’t want to confuse your friends/family when you said to them to get “Practical Paleo.” I wanted it to be just ONE resource still & forever. 👇🏻cont'd in comments
Paleoish nachos I made for lunch today. Here's what's layered up: @sietefoods lime tortilla chips, chopped marinated chicken seasoned with #BBspices Taco & Fajita blend, raw goat cheddar, pico, avocado, and cilantro. Boom! I think @realfoodliz would be proud of this #nachomadness 🥑🙌🏻🍗 #paleoish #grainfree #glutenfree #portraitmode #iphone
This is a completely gratuitous selfie because it's Sunday and I did my hair. And I love it. . My curling iron is linked on my favorites page of my website (link in my bio). I'm not wearing makeup here but there is a filter on this photo #honesty and if you look closely I've got a pimple next to my mouth anyway 🤣 . Hair cut & color by @whitneywarfield Brows by @browistry Lashes by @backstageglamourstudios . If any of these fun vanity upkeep habits of mine upset you because you “don't like that I do them,” or you “didn't expect them of me.” It's okay with me, carry on without a comment. I don't do those things to please you, I enjoy them for myself and they make my life easier. ❤ But none of them are Paleo and it's okay with me. My life, my face/head, my choices. 😘 . #microblading #lashextensions #ilovemyselfwithorwithoutthem
