Peppermint Chocolate Truffles {dairy-free, nut-free} by Our Paleo Life

Dark chocolatey, pepperminty, smooth and creamy truffles. Yes, please and thank you. No heavy cream and grody white sugar in these luscious babies. No way. Just full-fat coconut milk, a little grass-fed butter (you can totally leave it out if you want, it’s good either way), and dark chocolate perfection.

Savory Italian Crackers {by Louise at PaleoMagazine.com}

One of the things people often miss most when starting a Paleo diet is the “crunch” of various foods. I can relate. I definitely got tired very quickly of only eating food that was either chewy or mushy. So I spent a long time trying to come up with dishes that would replace that crunch […]

Jalapeno Poppers by The Primal Desire

Well, where has the time gone? We are in the heat of December (or the chill? You know what I mean…), and the holidays are fast approaching. Christmas concerts, holiday parties, cheer and merriment. And of course FOOD! Food is love and as you spend time with friends and family the urge to overindulge surrounds us.

Super Paleo Cookies by Our Paleo Life

These cookies are like a brownie with a crunch, they’re Super Paleo. Loaded with the good stuff, crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Super Good!

Dairy-Free Eggnog by Our Paleo Life

Eggnog is a holiday season staple for most people, but for those of us with sensitivities to dairy, it’s not. There are plenty of dairy-free options in most grocery stores, but they are filled with thickeners like carrageenan which have other negative effects on the body. Why do that to yourself when making it it home is so easy and tastes better than anything store-bought?

Bacon Jalapeno Cornbread by Our Paleo Life

We are full-blown into football season, and football = food, amiright? So guess what I have for your today? A fantastic collaboration between myself, Stacy & Matt from Paleo Parents, and Nicole from Merit + Fork. Stacy and Nicole are lucky enough to live near each other and get together often to enjoy food and […]

Cherry Almond Crisp by Merit + Fork

CHERRIES!!! My absolute favorite fruit since as far back as I can remember. My dad was a cherry fanatic, so, in turn, my brother & I have always loved all things cherry. I could eat fresh cherries all day, but, since the window of opportunity for fresh cherries is so small, I always stock up on frozen ones. Like… at least 8-10 bags are in my freezer at any given time.

Brewed Butter Chocolate {A Primal Coffee Alternative} by Our Paleo Life

For personal reasons, we don’t drink coffee, though we do enjoy the occasional mug of herbal tea (mmm, peppermint is our favorite). I kept hearing about butter coffee, but since coffee’s not my thing, I never tried it, even though I love me some butter. I’m also not wild about large amounts of caffeine, so when I heard about brewing chocolate, which is naturally low in caffeine, I perked up a bit {see what I did there?}.

White Fish with Peach Salsa Sauce

Ever have one of those days? You know the one where even opening your eyes in the morning is a struggle?

You get soap in your eyes, and forget to shave the other leg? Traffic on the way to work is especially brutal and you hit every stop light. You forget your lunch at home, and the internet is down at work. Everything is a battle and a crisis. One of those days that you wish you could just stay in bed? Or hide under your desk and eat delicious paleo treats (cookies or brownies).
