Bacon wrapped or meat-free, these spicy creamy jalapeño poppers use nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor without the dairy. Perfect for holiday parties.
Cornbread is the perfect side to many dishes, but with corn on the Paleo No-No List, many people have to give it up. Not anymore. Enjoy your favorite bread without any actual corn. Eat it plain, or use one of the 2 optional variations to change things up.
What do you do with all the extra cucumbers from your garden or the local farmer’s market? Make a refined-sugar-free cucumber salad, of course.
An often overlooked veggie due to it’s “weirdness”, Brussels sprouts are surprisingly delicious and the most-requested vegetable in our home. Why? Because I cook them in bacon and drizzle it with balsamic vinegar. Doesn’t get much better than that.
Avocados ripen in the blink of an eye, so be ready to make the best guacamole when they do with this Tomatillo Starter. Keep a jar in the fridge for a salsa dip or add some to an avocado. Perfect dip either way.
Leftover Paleo Chicken Nuggets are the star in this salad, but if you don’t have any, they’re worth making a fresh batch. This is a salad that even the kids will want to eat. Don’t forget the Honey Mustard Dressing.
No canned green beans or condensed soups with weird ingredients in them. Just real, fresh food for your holiday table. The way it should be.
This was the one Thanksgiving side dish that I could never get enough of. And now it’s grain-free and dairy-free. It should really be classified as a dessert, but who am I to argue.
Guess what’s fast approaching? The dreaded sugar- and gluten-filled holidays. I had not yet made the paleo transition last holiday season, so this will be my very first Thanksgiving and Christmas where I will forego cooking and baking the traditional meals of my past. BUT, I love my traditional foods, you know? I am pretty […]
You can’t go wrong with BBQ or bacon, and this delicious recipe is stuffed with both! Easy to prepare, healthy, and delicious enough that everyone will ask for more. Plus, it’s a great way to sneak in some greens.
I don’t care who you are, if you’ve ever eaten a piece of bread, a biscuit, a roll, anything bread-y, you will totally miss it once you decide you won’t/can’t eat it anymore. I spent 31 years eating bread and loving it. Yeah, I don’t care if you know how old I am. Anyway, bread, it’s […]
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 […]
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 […]
I always forget that I can probably use recipes that were my favorites in my pre-paleo life. They can either be altered to fit the paleo foods, or used as is because they were already compliant. I was recently browsing through a cookbook that I made for my family for Christmas, and came across this […]
To go along with my love of all roasted vegetables, here’s another one that I wouldn’t eat any other way. I really think asparagus tastes gross, but once it’s roasted, it’s amazing. And it’s so simple. Well, just as easy as roasting any other vegetable, but without all the chopping and dicing. Roasted […]
I had always just assumed that spaghetti squash was the only real noodle replacement for wheat noodles. I tried it once and wasn’t a huge fan, maybe I didn’t cook it enough, I don’t know. But I stumbled upon the idea of zucchini as noodles. What?! Now, I’m not awesome so I don’t have a […]
When you’re a paleo athlete, sweet potatoes are your best friend, right? But it can get pretty boring if you don’t find new ways to eat them. Enter the pancake. Quick, easy, and delicious! And if you’re not doing a Whole30, add a little Grade B maple syrup, ohmygosh, so good. This is also a […]
I’ve got a few favorite recipes that require ground pork, or better yet, sausage. So in my search for sausage, I came to realize that a lot of sausage has added sugar. What?! Why is that even necessary? Sugar is hidden in so many foods, it’s ridiculous! Obviously, the only way around this was to make […]
Yet another recipe from Juli over at PaleOMG. And honestly, I didn’t really deviate at all, except I use a Blendtec instead of a food processor and I blend mine instead of mixing it so it’s less chunky and more creamy. It’s really good with tortilla chips, but that’s totally not paleo so don’t do […]
