Paleo Spaghetti. Who says you can’t have spaghetti on a Paleo diet?

Paleo Spaghetti

Well ok, you can’t have what most of America calls “spaghetti” (you know the one with not so good “pasta”), but you can have a pretty close 2nd. At least in my opinion, which may not be winning you over yet. Maybe if I tell you that when my husband took a bite and said to me what type of noodles are these and then proceeded to tell me how good they were….would that win you over? How about when I actually told him that the noodles were zucchini “noodles” and he proceeded to stick by his claim and even said “those are good”. Am I getting closer to winning you over?

I promise you won’t miss the pasta in this spaghetti dish. Paleo Spaghetti Print Recipe 1 tablespoon olive oil or coconut oil 2 large zucchini, cut into julienne strips 1 tsp garlic, minced 3 to 4 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped 1 pound ground chicken, turkey, or beef (grass-fed preferred) 2 cups Homemade Veggie Tomato Sauce Additional fresh basil for topping pasta Instructions: Home.

How was your VDay? And those tender crispy balls from RFD really inspired me to post one of my favorite easy veggie burger recipes. So today, I woke up. Easy Burger. I pan-fry. And I don't think I have to remind you how incredibly healthy sweet potatoes and beans are. The Patty. I served the patties with tender sliced avocado, a crisp bed of romaine lettuce, a circle of onion, some Dijon mustard and some pepper and olive oil over top.

Solid perfume pocket watch locket. Try as I might, I cannot seem to grasp even the most basic of feminine beauty rituals.

solid perfume pocket watch locket

I’m constantly struggling to master rudimentary hair and makeup techniques, and my one-time foray into the “subtle” art of perfume left everyone in the room with burning nostrils. This DIY solid perfume locket from artisanal perfumer Mandy Aftel is something I can definitely stand behind, though. Mandy only uses pure and natural ingredients to create her perfumes, and this solid scent can be easily applied with no risk of over-dousing.

The old pocket watch appeals to my tomboy side, and I love its versatility; you can wear it as a necklace or pin, or simply tuck it into your pocket or purse. I can’t wait to make one and give my feminine sensibilities a little boost :) Thanks for sharing this tutorial with us, Mandy! Read the full how-to after the jump! Creating your own solid perfume is extremely satisfying. Materials Instructions 1. How to screenprint on fabric. Home. Home. Home. Home. Home.
