What a very appropriate post title this week. I’m back from
sin/ gluttony city Vegas and my friend’s bachelorette party! I’m not so much in a food coma as I am a post-vacation coma. It never ceases to amaze me how EXTREMELY hard it is to get back to work after vacation. Which is exactly why I’m writing this post instead of writing a research paper for grad school. Oops. Post-vacation depression is totally a thing. Especially when you go from living with this view (below) and the go-go-go party lifestyle of Vegas to staring at your computer screen and physiology textbook in a library for hours on end.
Let’s cheer ourselves up with some amazing recipes from around the blog world from this week, shall we?
Caramelized Pineapple, Bacon, and Goat Cheese Guacamole. I think my taste buds died and went to heaven just looking at the title of that recipe. My stomach doesn’t love goat cheese but if yours does you should TOTALLY go for it. Or just leave it out for paleo/dairy-free!
Breakfast Stacks. MAN these look fantastic.
Sweet Sticky Pork Ribs & Crunchy Slaw. YES. I love ribs. So much.
Grilled Chicken Pesto Pizza (Paleo, AIP)
Homemade Paleo Teddy Grahams. WHAT?! Omgtheseweremyfavoritethingseverasakid.
Pumpkin Waffle Cakes. Who says pumpkin is only for fall?
Have you guys listened to the Paleo for Women Podcast yet with Jenna from Coconuts and Kettlebells and Stefani Ruper from Paleo for Women (and the author of the AMAZING book Sexy by Nature)?? New favorite podcast. Go listen!

* with a caveat on #2 – eliminating food groups – which is totally fine if your body doesn’t respond well to them. Like me and gluten/dairy. We definitely aren’t friends, for a good reason. Also totally fine if you’re doing a food challenge like the whole30 to see how your body does respond to them! But if you’re eliminating food groups for absolutely no reason…you probably want to check yourself.
