Indian Butter Chicken

Indian Butter Chicken

I’ll be honest with you. I’ve really been struggling with motivation lately. For months, I was dedicated to going to the gym at least 5 days a week. I was eating clean, about 80/20 Paleo and I hadn’t touched any form of processed food or […]

Grain Free and Dairy Free Swedish Meatballs

Grain Free and Dairy Free Swedish Meatballs

I’ve discovered a new product. They’re called chickpea crumbs and they’re created by Watusee Foods. I love them. No, like really. They’re 100% organic, naturally gluten free, and the ONLY ingredient is chickpeas. They made my meatballs SO much better than when I tried using almond […]

Paleo Meatloaf (and how to keep it together!)

Paleo Meatloaf (and how to keep it together!)

I’ve had a terrible time trying to make a decent Paleo meatloaf! Does anyone make Paleo breadcrumbs? I’ve yet to see them. I guess I could make a grain free bread and then turn that into breadcrumbs but that seems like so much work! If […]

Grain Free Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie

Grain Free Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie

I’ve been traveling this week and haven’t had the time to create a new recipe lately so sorry about being absent! I’m back and more inspired than ever to create budget friendly Paleo recipes for you all! Today, if you follow me on Instagram, I […]

Vegetable Beef No-Beans Chili

Vegetable Beef No-Beans Chili

Everyone and their mother has a recipe for chili, I know. Pinterest is saturated with them. Beef chuck chili, white chicken chili, with beans, no beans. So take this recipe with a grain of salt. It’s just the way I like chili. Full of veggies, […]

Red Wine Braised Short Ribs

Red Wine Braised Short Ribs

I love cooking with alcohol. The smells it gives off are just fantastic! I’m allergic to alcohol so I can’t drink it straight up. Sad day. Oh well, I’ll just smell it as it’s cooking instead. This dish is so fragrant, filling my home with […]

Swedish Stovetop Stuffed Cabbage

Swedish Stovetop Stuffed Cabbage

It’s finally snowing here in Colorado. And all the soups, stews, and anything stuffed are calling my name! I’ve made three different soups and a beef stew this week. Now comes the stuffed cabbage! This recipe is an all-time favorite of my dad. So, of […]

Cream of Broccoli Soup

Cream of Broccoli Soup

I’m completely obsessed with Kite Hill’s Greek Style Yogurt. I use their plain variety in just about anything that calls for dairy. My smoothies, soups, beef stroganoff… you name it! I’ve almost perfected my grain free biscuit recipe and what’s the secret ingredient? You guessed […]

One week on the 21-day Sugar Detox

One week on the 21-day Sugar Detox

Like I mentioned earlier, I’m doing the 21 day sugar detox. One week down, 2 weeks to go! A day or two were not so fun, mostly because I didn’t plan very well and ended up really hungry and too low on blood sugar. But […]

Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant Parmesan

I originally published this recipe on my first blog. You can find that post, along with a bit about my health journey, HERE. I didn’t like the BlogSpot platform so I moved over to Word Press a couple of months ago. So, I’m reposting this […]
