Collard Greens with Bacon and Yucan “Panko”

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

I love me some veggies done simply (say, steamed with a drizzle of olive oil and apple cider vinegar or raw, in a salad). But we need to mix things up! So I am always, and I mean always, looking for ways to make my veggies more interesting and delicious. Take collard greens. While I …

Roasted Chicken with Cherries and Kale

Following the AIP diet and lifestyle has been such a journey for me. A process of transformation and personal growth. I’ve come to feel such a deep sense of gratitude for all the wonderful, nutritious foods out there. Foods that nourish. Foods that sustain. And I especially love it when a meal comes together that …

Shiitake Salmon Fried “Rice” (AIP / Paleo / Keto)

Guys, I am so excited about this Shiitake Salmon Fried “Rice”. It features, of course, cauliflower rice. It’s been a godsend for my diet and for so many reasons: it’s versatile, working as a side or part of the main dish; it’s low carb (my body seems to respond better to eating on the lower-carb …

Lemon Frosted Strawberry Donuts (AIP / Paleo / Vegan)

I’m always on the hunt for recipes that are only fruit-sweetened. Not just for me, but for my whole family. I try to make one weekly “treat” we can all enjoy. Not only because AIP treats are something I can enjoy, but because they’re healthier for everyone in my family. Let’s face it, the Paleo …

Peppermint “Chocolate” Chip Ice Cream (AIP, Paleo)

2018?! Really? I’m sorry, but I am reeling from how fast this past year has gone. I feel like I was just in Cape Cod, and that happened in early September! We’ve been a bit quiet on the blog front, because we’ve all been partying and having a great ole time! Umm, OK no – …

Peppermint “Chocolate” Bars – AIP and Paleo Yesterday, I took my daughter to NYC, for a fun mommy-daughter day. We went to the American Girl store for lunch, saw “the” tree, visited Santa at Macy’s, and more. Actually, the highlight of the day for me personally (and no, it was not waiting the 2+ hours …

Makeover – French Green Bean Casserole (Paleo, Vegan Option)

I was inspired to make this because I wanted a side dish for Christmas that I knew could be served to Mr. Picky and C without any complaints. Actually, this is my goal for every recipe I make – and while I may not always hit the mark, this was a complete success – quickly …

Cranberry Orange Muffins (AIP, Paleo, kid-approved)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

Fresh cranberries might just be one of my favorite food-related parts of this holiday season. I love that, like pumpkin, they’re a crossover ingredient, good for both Thanksgiving and Christmas menu ideas. And that deep red hue – it’s a reminder of the beloved seasonal color. Plus, consider the cranberry for a moment: not something …

Savory Maple Sausage Breakfast Bars (AIP / Paleo)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

When it comes to breakfast, a major part of switching to AIP (Autoimmune Paleo) means moving away from sweet. Now, that in no way means breakfast can’t be nourishing, interesting, or creative! But for me, (and maybe for many of you) breakfast has proven the most challenging “shift” when changing diet to AIP. And if …

Paleo Magic Bars (Egg Free)

Holidays are coming, and if you’re anything like me, you’re on the hunt for treats to share that aren’t incredibly time-consuming or labor intensive. Over the years, I’ve learned that if it isn’t easy or uncomplicated, then I’m probably not going to have a great time making desserts! Don’t get me wrong, there are times …

Dairy-Free Bone Marrow Butter with Rosemary and Flaked Sea Salt (AIP, Paleo)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

Bone Marrow Butter – Autoimmune Paleo Approved “Roasted what?” I know, that’s what I said too when I first heard of bone marrow. What was this mysterious stuff? And would I actually want to eat it? Initially, when I saw recipes for bone marrow butter, I despaired upon seeing the inevitable butter featured. But then …

Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Bars (AIP, Egg Free)

Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Bar, sitting on a plate looking beautiful! These bars have been on my wish list for a long time now – breakfast bars, sweetened only lightly with honey, that are autoimmune paleo friendly – and these are it. Let’s face it, sugars – even the healthy kind – shouldn’t be consumed in …

Paleo Pumpkin Pie Chocolate Chip Gelato (Dairy / Gluten Free)

Paleo Pumpkin Pie Chocolate Chip Gelato, in a white square bowl surrounded by leaves and gourds. It’s that time of year again. And I’ll admit it, whenever fall rolls around, even if just one week earlier I’d sworn to myself that I wouldn’t fall prey (no pun intended!) to its charms, by mid September I …
