Lightly Salted, Cinnamon Broiled Grapefruit

Sometimes my most difficult struggle with keeping this page up to date with fresh ideas isn’t in what I am eating, it’s realizing the value behind the simple things we do eat. Over the last couple of months I have been running a Facebook group dedicated to healthy, whole-food eating.  Over there I am sharing […]

Paleo Chicken Parmesan

Life, as we all know, can sometimes become so overwhelming. That doesn’t always mean bad or negative things are happening…it just simply means our plate is overflowing. Mine has been overflowing for quite some time, hence the lack of sharing here! Recently though, I’ve begun to realize that most of my overflow is self inflicted.  […]

Grain-Free Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

I know it has been too long since I have posted a recipe. And like I posted last month…life has thrown us a new curve ball, so I cannot promise how often I’ll be posting recipes for now, but with so many great ones at your fingertip, I still pray you’ll stop by often and […]

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. I love the combination of cilantro and lime in cauliflower rice, on my paleo tacos and more… So when I had several heads of cabbage needing to […]

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

Sometimes I get in a blogging rut. I mean, I love sharing with you and I love getting to know all of you…but sometimes I find myself without any recipes because, well, what we eat doesn’t always need a recipe! I guess that happens when you move over to clean eating. Really, once you get […]

The Best Gluten-Free Bread Ever! (Done 2 Ways!)

We are almost an the entire way through Celiac Awareness Month and I have failed to post a single recipe. Like many of you, this time of the year for my family of 7 is filled with sports events, end of the year concerts, talent shows, birthdays, holidays and more… It is just a wee […]

Confessions of a busy mom (and one really great dairy-free buttercream frosting recipe)

  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 […]
