Allow me to introduce my self. I’m Kara and my mission is to help you care about food again! Hence my blog name, Karaboutit. Care….about it…get it? Maybe? Sweet. In all seriousness, food & cooking = my life. I wake up scanning my brain for dinner ideas and go to sleep dreaming of what I want for breakfast. But here’s the thing, I follow a grain free, dairy free approach to what I eat. You could say I’m paleo if labels are your forte.


I know what you’re thinking. WHY? To be frank, eating this way gave me my life back. After 19 years of boxed mac & cheese, frozen pizza and chicken nuggets my body decided to host an intervention. I developed lengthy sinus infections, chronic fatigue syndrome, and 20 ulcers in my small intestine. Long story short, that sucked. BAD. I felt lost physically and emotionally, and eating paleo healed what my doctors couldn’t. It’s no doubt I feel SO much better than I ever have, but a life of poor choices has led to lingering symptoms. So while paleo has saved me, I am constantly looking for ways to improve my nutrition and treat the chronic illness I still experience.

I live in the beautiful city of Austin, Texas. AKA the only location where you can paddle board with your dog, drink wine while grocery shopping, watch bats, rage to your fav live music and get breakfast tacos just about anywhere…all in one day. Hell yeah! I love this city. I’m a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner student, work at the Whole Foods down town, and at a paleo restaurant called Picnik Austin. These places get me, and if you stumble upon me there please say hi! I don’t bite 🙂

Alllllllll of that being said, my goal here is to encourage you. Everyone deserves to have an amazing relationship with the food we eat because let’s be real, it’s a huge problem in today’s society. I’ll be posting paleo compliant recipes, along with my nutritional experiences and advice. My blog is about finding healing through a yummy approach. Over the years I’ve learned an abundance of information on holistic nutrition that I am SO excited to share it with you all. I can hardly keep it in people!!

So if you can’t even fathom the idea of giving up bread, cupcakes, pasta, cheese and all the glutens then maybe this blog isn’t for you. But, if you’re ready to super charge your health and capture sanity again. Girl (or boy), I GOTCHU! Come kick it with me and subscribe to my email list. They’ll just be a couple friendly reminders that it’s time to get cookin’ baby! I’ll be waiting for you with a butter coffee in one hand and an avocado in the other.
