How to Render Beef Tallow in Your Slow Cooker (and why you would want to)


  First, some of you may be asking, “what is beef tallow?” To put it simply, beef tallow is rendered beef fat. Grass fed beef tallow is rich in niacin, vitamins B6, B12, K2, selenium, iron, phosphorus, potassium and riboflavin. Grass fed beef tallow also contains a high ratio of CLA which is known to […]

AIP Basil Pesto (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free)


There are few things more delectable than a rich, savory, creamy sauce like pesto. That is, unless you are allergic to some of the most vital ingredients normally found in this simple sauce. While my family often enjoys my Vegan Pesto with Kale, recently a friend asked me if I had ever attempted to make […]

What We Eat: Mexican Coleslaw with Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette


There is just something about the combination of cilantro and lime that makes me happy. My cilantro-lime ranch vegetable dip is made and enjoyed weekly in our home.

What We Eat: Teriyaki Beef Kabobs (Paleo, Whole30)


Last week I shared how I managed to stretch a meal originally planned for 4 to be enough for 8 people…this week, the concept is similar. Fruits and vegetables can make a meal stretch. Use these instead of grains and you’ve got a paleo plan you can afford to stick with. Because we purchase our […]

What We Eat: Roasted Kielbasa and Roasted Vegetable Packet Dinner

  I have a confession. Something that has sat on my shoulders for some time. No matter how much I want to, no matter how hard I try… I cannot always make things from scratch. I mean, I really want to be that mom that has her business, writes her blog (or two), is at […]

Nutbutter Bars (Paleo Friendly, Nut-Free Option Listed)


With Easter around the corner, my family is preparing for the biggest celebration yet. With that comes the desire to provide somewhat ‘normal’ treats without having to break the bank to provide safe treats for everyone and without having to unnecessarily risk harmful exposure to allergens. Recently, I came across a picture of some tantalizing […]

Pulled Pork with Pineapple Salsa over Roasted Acorn Squash


Two weeks ago I shared a simple recipe for 3-ingredient crockpot pulled pork. Today, I wanted to share with you one of our favorite ways to enjoy this!

Vanilla with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting Mustache Cake (dairy-free, gluten-free, paleo)


More often than not, when your birthday falls close to a holiday, any holiday, chances are that your party theme will fall in line with that holiday.
