Sage-Braised Chicken

As previously mentioned, The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook,  is one of my favorite books and I have been cooking a lot from it. I love cookbooks that provide pictures with all of their recipes because it gives me an idea of what the end product should look like and this book does exactly that! I love chicken, more…

Foodie Confessions

In hopes of keeping myself accountable I am going to start a series called Foodie Confessions where I will write about my struggles to sometimes stay on the narrow path that is the Paleo/Autoimmune Protocol (AIP). These might not be regular posts but any time I either give in to temptation (because it happens, I’m human) or think about giving…

The title of this post was going to be… A Struggle… but for sake of keeping everything positive and upbeat I decided to go with A Journey. Because that’s what this is all about after all, a journey to a better life, better health, and an overall sense of a life well-lived.

Hello Blogosphere

Not that the internet needed another blog but I just couldn’t help it. I decided to create Hungry Pea because I am living with Hashimoto Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the thyroid .
