Sometimes people assume that since I no longer dive face first into a box of Krispy Kremes that I've *always* been a healthy eater. . SO. NOT. TRUE. . Picture it. San Francisco. 2001. I was working in an office (Gap, Inc.'s HQ to be exact) at a job that didn't truly light me up. Sure, I worked for the company I grew up working for (I spent 7 years working for Gap), but I was not happy. I was, however, *quite* happy on the Fridays when a coworker would bring in donuts. I remember vividly that once I ate at least FOUR of them over the course of the day… as the box sat next to my desk, CALLING MY NAME. . And this isn't about whether or not it's okay to enjoy a donut (grain-free, gluten-free, or otherwise) if you so choose. . This is about my unhappiness AND my inability to figure out that I was eating those foods to FEED A VOID in my soul. It wasn't about the food. It rarely is for any of us. . BUT the food choices we make when we are feeling sad, or down, or weak, or worthless, well, they can certainly make matters worse . I wasn't equipped with healthy habits or the tools to know what kinds of foods would better serve my body day in and day out. I didn't know how to eat to maintain a healthy weight while enjoying my food and feeling great. . It wasn't until I learned how to plan ahead and which foods would make me feel full and satiated and awesome – not deprived or “high” and then “low” again (like sugar and refined carbs – that my life would truly change for the better. That I would take back control of my life and my career in a direction of my dreams. It was about so much more than food. . In April of 2010, after several other jobs and studying holistic nutrition, I sat down at a Starbucks every day for several hours over the course of several weeks and I wrote what would be the first version of the @21daysugardetox. And for the last nearly 7 years we've supported hundreds of thousands of people through that program. . On Monday, March 6th, we kick off our next (of just 4 per year now) community-wide 21-Day Sugar Detox. Is it your time now? Are you ready? Are you IN?! .

I told you I was gonna post some ridiculous wings. And so, here they are. These are feta-brined organic chicken wings, tossed in peri peri hot sauce, lemon, and topped with feta and chives. No, feta isn't Paleo. I don't have a recipe for these at this point but you can google feta-brined chicken like I did and then make the rest up from there. I'll try to share this recipe with my email subscribers soon! If you're not on the list go to blog.balancedbites.com to hop on it! #fetabrined #wings #yum #chickenwings inspired by @souvlasf Super Bowl Sunday wings!
We ❤ lamb. Don't worry, I took video of the making of this honestly simple lamb roast meal. No, really, it's SO SO EASY and tasted amazing. Thanks for the roast, @pratherranchmeatco 🙌🏻 I used #BBspices GREEK blend all over this bad boy and it came out great! . Swipe to see more photos of the meal! . #paleo #practicalpaleo #paleoeasybutton #ilovelamb #lamb
