Apple Fruit Leather {no sweeteners added}

Applesauce Fruit Leather {no added sweeteners}

I’ve been on a dehydrating kick lately. When we had an overflow of peaches so I made fruit leather with them, as well as dehydrating slices (so good, by the way). The fruit leather was a hit with the kids, but I ran out of peaches, and wanted to use what I already had on […]

Chocolate Protein Pancakes {grain-free; dairy-free; nut-free}

Chocolate Protein Pancakes {grain-free; dairy-free}

I’ve been contemplating a pancake recipe for quite a while now. We’ve been cheating on paleo with a gluten-free recipe that’s made with rice flour, so it’s still gluten-free, just not strict paleo. I knew that we needed pancakes made with my all-time favorite Otto’s Naturals cassava flour instead, so I got to work. But, […]

Twice Baked Potato {primal; dairy}

Twice Baked Potatoes {primal; dairy}

First things first: yes, this recipe contains dairy. And no, dairy is not considered paleo. White potatoes are good to go on the paleo diet, though. That said, our family does, on occasion, eat dairy. It’s not a staple in our diet, but we do splurge and this is one of those splurges for us. […]

Peach Fruit Leather {honey-sweetened; real fruit}

Vanilla Peach Fruit Leather {honey-sweetened; real fruit}

For Labor Day weekend, our family took our last camping trip of the season. Just before we left, I realized I still had over 2 dozen peaches that would go bad if we left them at home for the 4 days we would be gone. So with 2 days to spare, I made as much […]

Upside Down Peach Cake {grain-free; dairy-free option}

Upside Down Peach Cake {grain-free; dairy-free option}

It’s that time of year again, when the Colorado peaches invade my kitchen (in a good way). Since we still don’t have a peach tree, I’ve resorted to buying my Palisade Peaches from roadside stands, but that is getting pretty expensive. Fortunately for me, a woman at church was trying to find a home for […]

Mini Molten Lava Cakes {primal, grain-free} | Our Paleo Life

Mini Molten Lava Cakes {primal, grain-free}

You know when something gets stuck in your head and you try to push it out but it keeps coming back? That’s the case with this molten lava cake. I had recently started a ketogenic diet and if you’re at all familiar with that, it is high in fat, low in carbs, and moderate in […]

Continuous Brew Kombucha System

Continuous Brew Kombucha (Step-By-Step & How-To)

For many years now, our family has been drinking kombucha. From the days when, upon hearing the word “kombucha”, we were met with faces of utter confusion and questions like “kombu-what?!” to now, when we get replies of “Oh, what brand is your favorite” and “I make my own at home”. This centuries-old probiotic-rich drink […]

Protein Breakfast Cookies {grain-free, egg-free, dairy-free} by Our Paleo Life

The Perfect Paleo Powder Review + Protein Breakfast Cookies

Many of you may know that our son was the cause for us finally taking the plunge into paleo. We had toyed with the idea for some time, even attempting the change a year earlier, but it wasn’t until we realized our son needed a change in his diet in order to help him control […]

Classic Mini Meatloaf Muffins {grain-free; dairy-free} by Our Paleo Life

Classic Mini Meatloaf Muffins {grain-free; dairy-free}

I can’t even begin to count how many times I have stood in front of the open fridge, staring at the meat drawer, thinking “What am I going to make for dinner?”. It’s not like the contents of the drawer will magically change, I could just close the fridge and figure it out, but I […]

Sausage Gravy {dairy-free, grain-free} by Our Paleo Life

Sausage Gravy {dairy-free, grain-free}

Good morning, sunshines! Or do you usually just mutter “ugh, morning”. I’m usually more of the latter, a night-owl, if you will. Always have been, probably always will be. I always say “I’m going to go to bed at 10pm and wake up with the sun” and then midnight rolls around and I give up. […]

Smokey Bacon Chili {bean-free} by Our Paleo Life

Smokey Bacon Chili {bean-free}

About a month ago, I signed up to bring chili to our church’s Pinewood Derby and Chili Cook-Off activity. The derby was for everyone, not just the scouts, so I took that opportunity and got all Pinterest-y and found lots of tips to make a super fast derby car with my oldest daughter. I was […]

Takeout Orange Chicken {grain-free} by Our Paleo Life

Takeout Orange Chicken {grain-free}

It’s spring, which means everything is changing from brown to green! Or, in the case of Colorado this week, from brown to white. March is one of (if not THE) snowiest months here, and while we expected to get some snow, I don’t think we were really expecting to get as dumped on as we […]

Everyone's Favorite Banana Muffins {grain-free, dairy-free, nut-free} by Our Paleo Life

Everyone’s Favorite Banana Bread {grain-free, dairy-free, nut-free}

I can’t even begin to tell you how spoiled I am, but I’ll try anyway. I grew up in Florida, 27 years there. It’s hot, humid. Summer is the main season, the other 3 are just a fleeting thought. But that’s all I knew for 27 years. Then my husband ripped me from my hot, […]

Blueberries & Cream Gummies {by Our Paleo Life}

Blueberries & Cream Gummies

It has been 3 years (THREE YEARS? How has it been that long?) since I originally posted this recipe and never took any pictures of them. Every time I make them, I think “I should really take pictures and post them with the recipe” but do I do it? No. Until now. When I originally […]

Mini Pizza Bites {grain-free, dairy-free option} by Our Paleo Life

Mini Pizza Bites {grain-free, dairy-free option}

The weather in Colorado is a strange thing. Having spent the majority of my life in Florida, I was used to fairly consistent weather year-round. Our brief stint in Minnesota taught me that there were, in fact, 4 seasons each year. Now that we’re in Colorado, I have discovered it’s possible to have all 4 […]
