Hi friends, thanks for checking out my blog.
My name is Stephanie, but you can just call me Steph – all my friends do!
I’m a wife to a wonderful man, a part-time student studying business and nutrition here in California, employed full-time in the IT world, Crossfitter, and a self-proclaimed home chef.
Life is busy, but life is good.
I started Cave Girl Culture in 2013 because I loved cooking and sharing meals with friends and family, and I wanted to spread that passion to people around the world. Sharing recipes is a wonderful way to keep our traditions, our roots, and our cultures alive. After all, everything we do in life revolves around food!
When I first got this blog off the ground, I was focusing on a Paleo approach – no processed foods, no grains, dairy, refined sugar, or legumes. This approach was exactly what I needed to learn how to listen to my body, and understand what foods really made me feel good on a day-to-day basis.
But over the years, I’ve come to a better understanding of what my body needs, and it’s an ever-evolving adventure. I no longer follow a strictly Paleo approach, instead, I have chosen a sustainable, real food approach that fuels me throughout my busy and active lifestyle. It’s really very simple -I like to find fun, creative and delicious ways to eat lots of meat, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. I try to limit the amount of sugar I eat while keeping things balanced.
I eat not just to survive, but to perform.
You will find most of my recipes here are grain and refined sugar-free because that’s what feels good to me on a consistent basis, but you may see some that aren’t. I encourage you to enjoy the recipes on here that would make YOUR body feel good, and maybe even try something new!
I always welcome feedback and I love getting to know people so please, don’t feel shy! Feel free to post a comment, say hi or even drop me an email at email@example.com.
Stay happy and healthy,
