Breakfast food is the best! Pancakes, waffles, french toast (all gluten free of course!), bacon, eggs, hash browns… They’re all so tasty! But this hash just may be my new favorite.

If you’ve never tried rutabaga, or don’t even know what a rutabaga is, it’s a funky looking root vegetable similar to a turnip. It’s a delicious, lower carb, alternative to a potato. Not that there is anything wrong with potatoes, but sometimes you just need to switch things up. You know, for the sake of variety and stuff. Anyway, when it’s shredded and cooked up like hash browns, it’s fantastic!

Throw in your favorite breakfast sausage and some good ol’ leafy greens and you’ve got one scrumptious and highly nutritious breakfast. It’s great with a couple of sunny side up eggs, but it’s also delicious on it’s own. So if you’re one of those people who can’t have eggs, first of all I’m so sorry, and second of all, you should give this a try.

Green Machine Bone Broth and a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day

Skip the green smoothie and try some green bone broth instead to up the nutrient density even further | www.vibrantlifearmywife.com #butteryourbroth #paleo

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day everyone!!! I know a lot of people are super into Saint Patrick’s Day, but not being Irish or a big drinker I’ve just never really gotten into it. Heck, I’m not even wearing green today (please don’t pinch me!). So while I won’t be partaking in any Irish car bombs or corned beef hash, that doesn’t mean I can’t get into the spirit with a little green beverage…and no I don’t mean green beer!

Bacon Braised Collard Greens: the tastiest way to eat your greens

Bacon Braised Collard Greens, the most delicious way to eat your greens | www.vibrantlifearmywife.com #paleo #glutenfree #AIP

Before we moved to Fort Hood, TX my husband was stationed at Fort Benning, GA. In the six months that we lived there we took a couple of trips to Atlanta and each time we went there we had to go to this restaurant downtown called Max Lager’s. It was my husband’s requirement. Now keep in mind, this was in my pre paleo/real food days, and even before my stint as a vegetarian. Although I’m sure they are delicious, cast iron mac & cheese, fish & chips, and southern fried chicken don’t really have a place in my diet now. Actually they didn’t have  place in my diet then either because I was gluten free and dairy free at that point. So I’m pretty sure I just got a salad whenever we ate there.
