Apple rings can be pretty expensive to buy in the store, and they often have more ingredients in them than just apples. Take control of your food and make it yourself. Dehydrated apple rings are probably the easiest snack to make.
Store brand cranberry juice has added sugars that counteract the benefits of cranberries. This version uses beneficial honey and you control the sweetness.
If you didn’t already know it was Fall, the influx of pumpkin recipes would have given you a clue. I honestly don’t see why we have to reserve pumpkin for just one time of the year. It tastes so good, why restrict ourselves? I know it’s hard to make things with pumpkin when you can’t […]
Oh my gosh, what the heck is my problem with snacks lately? I swear I have some real food recipes lined up for you guys, but my gosh, I just can’t quit with the snacky stuff lately. Maybe it’s time for another Whole30, since I failed miserably at my last attempt. Seriously, day 2, I […]
I am the grocery shopper in the house. I mean, obviously, since I’m the one who cooks and I know exactly what I need. On occasion, Rob will get some stuff for me if he’s out, and when he comes to the store with me, he’s the kid-wrangler/cart-pusher (which is awesome, by the way). But when […]
If you are one of our awesome followers on Facebook, you may have noticed that we recently acquired a freaking awesome new food dehydrator. In the last 4 days since we got it, I have made the following things: dried apple rings; beef jerky; dried basil; dried ginger; strawberry blueberry, and mango fruit leathers. The […]
Salt and caramel go together like peanut butter and jelly, but is not really a healthy treat. But you can still enjoy that super delicious combo, now in paleo form with just a few basic ingredients and very little time that doesn’t require any cooking.
Sometimes I get content in my cooking. I prepare the same meals over and over again because it’s easy. I know them, I don’t have to think, I don’t have to run to the computer to look up my recipes, I just run on autopilot. That’s all great and everything, until I realize that I’m missing […]
These dried fruit bites are so easy to make and keep for a long time in the fridge. They are great after-school snacks, as well as something quick and easy to throw in your hiking or camping pack.
No need to spend so much money on date bars at the store, make your own and adjust the lime flavor to your preference.
I made applesauce in the crockpot once. It was easy but took forever and cooking the apples tends to destroy the nutritional content. I really had no idea that there was a raw alternative, though it makes total sense. Sometimes I’m a little behind. I don’t want to talk about it. We got our Blendtec […]
Sometimes you have to admit when you are great at something. I will admit I was great at making banana bread. I had a no-fail recipe that was perfect every time, and only made better with the addition of chocolate chips. The problem with it was that it was loaded with flour, Crisco, and sugar. […]
Our local natural foods grocery store has a huge selection of bulk goods, and in that section are little baggies of dried strawberries. They aren’t hard, like chips, but chewy. Absolutely amazing, and I can’t get enough of them. For some reason, they are always 20% off, not that I’m complaining. But I wonder if they […]
We had some non-paleo company over for dinner this week. I made the Crockpot Paleo Minestrone Soup, but I felt like maybe our regular-food-eating guests might want something bread-y with it. My first thought was cornbread, but since that’s a no-no, I had to find a suitable replacement. I had pinned this recipe a while […]
