    SUCH an awkwardly long recipe name. I know. Had no idea what else to call them and still make sure you know all the delicious ingredients that went into these things. [...]

    It’s only a few days until the Super Bowl and the media can’t stop talking about balls. Guess it’s pretty appropriate that this recipe hops on the [...]

5 Faves & a Dud *SE

If you celebrated Thanksgiving today and you’re sitting here reading this right now, congratulations on making it through a crazy food and family-filled day. I shockingly did not go back for seconds on anything, including dessert! Must have been that sensible breakfast of a broccoli & egg white omelet that I had earlier in the […]

About Me & The Blog

The 'Occasional Faileo' is the best way to describe how I eat my way through life. It's all about balance. The one you'll find here includes mostly Paleo recipes, with a cheese-filled or outright nutritionally atrocious post sprinkled in every once in a while. If you're not hungry, check out the OF's sister blog, Lulu & the Box for a dose of fitness & fashion.

Om nom nom. Stuffing my face with  @stevespaleogoods at the @crossfitgames East Regional! All these #PFX15 posts make me regret not planning my vacation schedule early enough to make a trip to @paleofx - LOVE Austin. Love so much. So let's all sit here in our cubicles today pretending we're doing awesome things like sitting on a beautiful Austin night sipping on prickly pear margaritas at Matt's El Rancho on South Lamar. #Austin #ATX #summer #patio #pinkdrink Broke out ye olde spiralizer to help me meal prep for @rpstrength - eating leafy greens from a sandwich bag like they were a bunch of Cheetos is NOT gonna cut it in the long run. 😂 So... It's not paleo, but after seeing some phenomenal results in one of my best friends under their guidance, I'm going to give the @rpstrength templates a try. Beach season is on its way and my name has been absent from the PR board for a while. Instead of the simple YES/NO if a food is paleo, I'm going to give calculating macros a try. There will still be room for paleo recipes, given all the lean protein & veggies on the plan, but please don't judge me if I start buying peanut butter again. 😁 Also, I love spreadsheets. Not the cutest snack game ever, but here's a fun fact: the banana chocolate chip bread from #thepaleokitchen by @paleomg and @civilizedcaveman successfully keeps in the freezer and reheats into a kickass snack with 20 seconds in the microwave. 🙌😋 Meet Baxter. How do I take my coffee? BULLETPROOF. Time for the magic pixie dust before taking another stab at 15.4 Short sweet and straight to the point. I like it.
