    Girl, you keep rockin what you do. You don’t owe anyone explanations for what you do. Are they hiring you to blog? If not, they can move on. I’ll be honest, I miss the ol’ indulgent Liz and much of me wishes I had your dedication but I’m PROUD of you! I know that next time we see each other, we’ll still be downing sake and sushi. Yes, white rice and all. You be you and focus on what makes you and your family happy. xo

    There is a really cool company, steves original, that promotes a crossfit of sorts for inner city youth and they have awesome paleo snacks including a cereal that is so good. You could get ideas for jerkey mixes or buy from them, the coconut jerkey mix is my favorite so far, they have a cool sampler pack.

    WTF – if you don’t like it, haters and complainers can bugger off! I think it’s beyond ridiculous to complain about a blogger and the content of THEIR blog! There must be something in life more important to do – its your heart and soul, daily life and experiences and you signed no agreement that you have to remain true to your original content or theme. Maybe because I’m trying to head down a similar path or as a reader can see the gradual evolution, but I’m a loyal reader and welcome the new changes – love to see your happy posts again though – screw those half glass empty readers!
    Any nutritional info on this trail mix? Glad to seek one not including yogurt chips/chocolate/salted nuts etc :-)

      Thank you for the support Nadia. You’ve been there since the beginning and you are probably my most loyal reader besides Adrian. I really appreciate your feedback so thank you! I could post the nutrition info, but it will vary depending on the nuts you use.

    Sorry Elizabeth, but so far you haven’t beaten me….. Yet.

    I love your writing, your lifestyle and your food. I had better because you are the world to me.

    Onto the next great adventure and most importantly the next MEAT DISH!!

    WhatEVER Elizabeth– you know I’m a fan. You’ve inspired me! I fell off the wagon today, as I was working as an extra on a film set and the only food options were chips, pretzels, and big fat slices of thick crust pizza. But I’m not going to feel terrible about today, and I’m not going to let the guilt overcome me; I’m going to pull a Guilty Kitchen and work out and keep living life and eating good food! I miss your baking recipes a little bit, but screw the haters. Change is good, and you’re a great inspiration for your children, which is most important anyway.

      Don’t worry! The Paleo way of life has truly inspired me in the kitchen again! I have SO MANY recipes in the works. Baking included! I am super excited for all the coconut/almond/nut flour recipes to come!! Baking again, wheeeee!

    I haven’t commented before but I’ve been a follower for sometime. I just want to say that I love the new focus on your health. I think its great to see women make healthy choices and model that for others b/c goodness knows its hard for women to take care of themselves with all the things we do. BTW I LOVE your tattoo! :)

    Great rant!!!! Haters are going to hate and they can just piss off. I think what you are doing is fantastic and you have inspired me. And thank you for this recipe! I follow you on Instagram and saw the picture and was hoping for a recipe. Keep on doing what makes you happy. As long as you are happy in your life…that is all that matters.

    I never understood why people will comment with rude remarks. That is what is so great about the internet. If you don’t like what someone has to say you don’t have to read it. That simple.

    I have been doing Crossfit for 5 years and Paleo for 2. I followed you before your new journey and I love the direction the blog has gone. You were originally tagged in my google reader with other “Healthy Food Blogs”, you just switched over to “Crossfit & Paleo Blogs”.

    I’m a relatively new fan, and I think it’s ridiculous that people think that a blog is a place for criticizing someone’s lifestyle. Anyone who doesn’t like what they read should move on. There are plenty of us who do or who see it as an interesting alternative. I am not going to try a Paleo lifestyle, but that’s my choice, and I am not in any way criticizing your choice. I read here because it’s interesting to read about different choices, to consider those in an informed way. And good food is good food. I don’t have to be on a Paleo diet to think that the trail mix looks awesome.

      Thank you Luna! You’re right. Good food is good food and I look forward to spreading more good food recipes around!

    I personally started reading after and BECAUSE of the focus on health. I eat a low carb diet and have much interest in paleo foods, so when I stumbled upon one of your recipes, I subscribed. Keep posting!!

    I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now. I stumbled on it from a Pinterest post for your Idle Hand Bars (which, by the way, are possibly the best thing I’ve ever tasted in my life). I love your blog. I love the “old” blog, and I absolutely LOVE the “new” blog.

    I just want you to know that you were an inspiration to me to start exercising regularly. I’ve never had a weight problem, but I’ve also never been strong, and I often obsessed about weight/size rather than strength. I’ve just finished the first month of Insanity, which I was convinced was a good idea by one of your blog posts. I’ve never felt better, physically or about how I look. So, thank you for that!

    Keep doing what you do, and thanks also for showing the world that food that is healthy for you can also be exciting, beautiful, and absolutely delicious.

      Thank you so much Courtney. Those words mean a whole lot to me. I’m so glad I could inspire you to be stronger and healthier even though you probably were doing just fine before! ;) I love those Idle Hand Bars WAY too much, they are ridiculous! Thank you thank you thank you for the words of encouragement. Keep on going strong! Dig deeper!

    Sorry to read that you’re getting flamed…do people still call it that? Shitty. Anyway, love your blog – love your evolution. Love the perspectives you bring on health and fitness and parenting, food, and balance (esp. since you’re a fellow redhead – and a momma to an Isla too!) and your awesomer-than-awesome, sardonic humour. Peace!

    Liz: just keep doing what you’re doing. I just know you’re going to gain an even bigger legion of followers as you continue to blog your “new” passions! As I am sure you know: people often say mean things because they are uncomfortable or feel threatened, but it’s their problem not yours. Just know that you are an inspiration to so many…including me xoxo

    When I saw the picture of the cut of meat at the top of the post I was so sure this trail mix would have beef jerky in it… I made a trail mix with home made beef jerky in it before a flight to the UK this summer and it was amazing as a flight snack!

    I just found your blog today and spent a good chunk of time reading through it. Always nice to find a fellow Victoria foodie/blogger :)

    Boost your health and strength eating tasty Paleo diet recipes full of proteins,
    vitamins and minerals. Used to do some research on the web and found a book
    by Nickii, entitled The Paleo Diet. Cut out all dairy (even grass-fed butter), all fructose rich foods, salty foods,
    vinegars, and nuts and seeds.
