Candida Friendly Cucumber Salsa

My long-time readers have seen me, and thereby this website, through a number of new eating adventures…new diagnosis and many trial and errors. As you know, I have celiac. Two of my 5 children show signs of gluten-intolerance but have not tested positive for celiac. Still, maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle has benefited them greatly. Even […]

Paleo/Autoimmune Granola

Hi there! I know it has been a while but wanted to send a big “thank you” to everyone who has stuck by me and continued to support this site and helped my social media connections to grow, despite an extended time away. Today, I am sneaking in under the radar to enter one of […]

Coconut Flour Country Biscuits

Biscuits are one of those cherished southern foods my grandfather was an expert at. Learning how to make these dairy-free proved to be a mild challenge…making them gluten-free?  Difficult to say the least. My largest challenge came after discovering that I am sensitive to nuts. Over the last several years I have played with dozens […]

Pomegranate Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Just over one month ago, I gladly shared the secret that got my children to eat brussel sprouts. These lemon-infused brussels made it easy to deceive my children into trying more than just one bite and helped them discover that they like brussels. Only, I don’t like deceiving my children. And while these brussels defy […]

Autoimmune-Friendly Paleo Apple Sausage

To my readers on Facebook who were expecting this recipe earlier today, my apologies. An impromptu date with my husband took priority, although I am excited to be able to get this recipe to you tonight. I first created this sausage back when I did my first Whole30 and needed something that was quick yet […]

Sweet Potato Hasselbeck Potatoes

If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, undoubtedly you have seen some of the photos of the lovely meals my family and I have been enjoying recently. Funny thing? In addition to our usual grain-free and dairy-free fare; every meal I have made and every meal I have photographed over the last five […]

Paleo Garlic Cheese Biscuits

A few weeks ago, my friend Shirley Braden from Gluten-Free Easily posted her recipe for Garlic Cheese Biscuits. When she shared the link over on Facebook, I commented on how amazing her biscuits looked to which she said: “Sunny, I’m looking for you to make a grain-free version. I haven’t gotten to that yet, but […]

Lemon Infused Brussels

There is no doubt that I love my greens. Kale, spinach, arugula and more! There is scarcely a green that my family won’t eat. That is, unless you are a brussel sprout. It wasn’t until going gluten-free that I learned to love brussel sprouts. Before then I gagged at the thought. No matter how they […]

Potatoes au Gratin (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan Option Noted)

I do not eat potatoes often; my body just isn’t ready to process that many carbs. That being said, Thanksgiving only comes once a year and these cheesy, delicious slices are worth a once-a-year indulgence. One of my favorite Thanksgiving sides, I am pleased to share these with you today. May your holiday be filled […]

Paleo Green Bean Casserole

Growing up, my stepmother always told me she was a horrible cook. The thing is, I loved her food.  Simple meals made at home are still homemade meals. Living in the small town that we lived in, there weren’t many opportunities to run and grab take-out or fast food and so that meant that we […]
