This week I’ve been OBSESSED with Pumpkin Pancakes. They’re actually Paleo.

2 eggs, 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, 1/2 t. pumpkin spice & 1/2 t. cinnamon. Mix and then cook in a bit of coconut oil. BOOM.

Banana pancakes.  I ran out of pumpkin…so I subbed in a banana instead.

My Everyday Life: Week 39

Roasted peppers & baby broccoli, Curry Cauliflower Soup & MY KILLER GARLIC BREAD.

Someone on Instagram said this looked like Jurassic Park. I’m so amused by that.

Cloud stripes.

    Loving the item on your to do list! Haha. Great photos, as always!

  • Emily

    Tracy! PLEASE tell me you are working on pursuing food photography or some other kind of street/magazine photography as an alternative career. The photo with the fork and the squash is GORGEOUS. You are so talented and I love seeing your work every week! I hope you got around to making dessert. 🙂

  • Vanessa

    Great photos as always. Where do you walk/how long do you walk out of curiosity? I could get more into the habit myself!

  • Lisa @ Lisa Living Well

    I always look forward to your everyday life posts! Such gorgeous pictures each week and I wonder where you find the time to make all of the delicious recipes you do.

  • Jane M

    You looked very pretty and tan this past week. That Stitch Fit seems interesting. What else did get get/keep? Your necklace is FAB! Happy Fall! I’ve got a new puppy keeping me busy! YIPPEE!

  • LIA

    I love this week! It looks (mostly) so sunny there! I’m deciding whether or not to get a fitbit or not… my new school run has me walking 20 miles a week! Ouch.

  • Nicolle


  • Julie

    Your hair looks lighter!

  • Chelsy

    Tracy! I am obsessed w/ paleo pumpkin pancakes too! I made mine a few weeks back, created a slightly different recipe but just as good! I top mine w/ melted coconut butter! Holy Moly! Hope your weekend is fantastic! Also, also…luvvvvvv that necklace. I have been wanting to try Stitch fix for a while now looks like I’m gonna have to do it this week 🙂

  • Michelle

    If you’ve seen this I apologize, but yay for you and Joy for making this list. Kureyon9/15/foodie-instagram-accounts/

  • libby

    Thank you so much for showing me what browned butter actually looks like. Everyone talks about it but I never know if I’m browning it or burning it because I’ve never seen a photo to compare it to.
    Also, I think I really want to get a fitbit thanks to how obsessed you are with yours. 🙂

  • Marcella @

    I love everything about this post, from the sun on your shoulders to the strawberry aftermath.

  • Ellen

    I’ve been tearing through cans of pumpkin, mostly in shakes, but I’m mesmerized by your pancake recipe. There’s really no flour? Crazy!

  • My Week in Pictures – Week 39 | Just One More Row...

    […] I did make myself pancakes while Dave was out one night. Paleo pumpkin pancakes! They’re pretty tasty for being, you know, Paleo. Shutterbean mentioned the recipe over here. […]

  • Ronni

    I’ve made both versions of the pancakes and I prefer the banana. So good. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Tracy

      Fantastic, Ronni! I noticed that when I used canned pumpkin it just wasn’t the same as when I roasted kabocha squash. You might like the pumpkin better if you roast your own! It adds a better texture it. The canned pumpkin is mushy!

  • Natasha @ Smorish

    Great post! Love the to do list- Yum!

  • Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    He he. When I saw “soda date” I thought it was going to be a date with a girl named “soda”…Seinfeld. It always creeps in my mind. Anyway, the sage, brown butter, hazelnut combination looks divine (inspiration, thanks!) & I love the look of your breakfast & list from Friday.

    Hi Tracy. I visit this site often but rarely comment – it feels very rude! I want to say I’ve been loving your posts lately – the new outfitting posts are great fun, your recipes are exciting and accessible, and I love ‘My week in pictures’ posts. Life can be relentless, but you have a special knack of pausing at the right times to find moments of awesome. Great windswept selfie in this set! You’re looking vibrant 🙂
    Btw, also wanted to mention (‘coz I didn’t at the time), you were responsible for my purchase of a doughnut tin late last year when I was on maternity leave. I happened upon your choc doughnut post, and a girl did indeed just want chocolate. I packed my baby son in the car and immediately drove to the shops to buy the tin. Baked doughnut goodness was mine before lunchtime 😉
    Second btw, I’ve been working my way through the homefries podcasts at work – so much fun!

  • jamie @ arugulaholic

    What great moments! You are one talented person.

  • Amalie

    have you ever been to green chile pies in the city?! i just know you’d love it! Pie shakes and amazing pies!

  • Jamie

    You do the greatest selfies.

  • biobabbler

    I LOVE that last shot–wow. I think it’d be super cool blown up v. big, framed, and in your home. =)

  • Katie

    Oh dang. I totally got concerned the first .05 seconds into the roasted strawberries photo. It looked like a bloody a massacre. Ha!

    Thanks for sharing, as always!

  • mariah

    Love love the head on selfie! Perfect necklace. Want hair like yours! Too chicken to do it! Too lazy to keep going to the salon to keep it up. Your son looks so much like you!

  • Shawna

    Tracy, just wanted to say thanks for being so inspirational! I bought my Fitbit Flex about a month ago (totally addicted to the Sleep data!) and I’m also juicing – all thanks to you! I’m going to try the pear, fennel, cucumber tomorrow morning. I just had a carrot, peach and Meyer lemon – how crazy is it to still find organic peaches at the market?!

    And you look so healthy! GREAT job! I know how hard it is to juggle all this with a little kiddo around. My 6 year old LOVES juicing now but the walking/biking – not so much.

    • Tracy

      Thanks for your note, Shawna! I am sooooo happy that you are finding inspiration here and you’re on your way to becoming a healthier you!!!! xoxoxo
