Cauliflower Rice Sushi Rolls

Paleo GrubsPaleo Grubs – Properly prepared sushi rolls are one of the healthiest foods out there. Sushi is chock full of vegetables, omega-3 fatty acid seafood sources, and rolled in nori sheets. Nori is an edible seaweed with numerous health benefits of its own, so no problems there, and most vegetables are paleo-approved. But unfortunately for people who are on a paleo diet, sushi is usually made with rice as well. That doesn’t mean sushi has to be off-limits for paleo dieters, however. Simply replace the rice […]

My dog Roxy went to doggie Heaven yesterday. I had her for 13 years – since she was a tiny fluffy puppy! She was the first dog that was 100% mine and I really really wanted her. I bought her myself around sophomore year of college after asking my mom and boyfriend for a puppy for Christmas. They didn’t deliver and I  wished I’d written Santa a letter in the off chance that he still believed in me…. Well – I was on a doggie mission and […]
