I am a Pacific Northwest dwelling, self-proclaimed food fanatic with a healthy eye for every day dishes. I try to incorporate real natural whole foods in all of my recipes. On occasion I will post some paleo recipes that involve animal by-products and meat, hence the tagline "a contradictory kitchen". I also feature local Northwest businesses in my Lifestyle tab that specialize in either vegan, gluten-free, or paleo based cuisine. I live this amazing life with my husband, Joe and our 2 creatures, Bentley and Henry.
