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 […]

Not Your Momma’s Meatloaf

Meatloaf. Love it or leave it, undoubtedly your mom had some version of meatloaf that would occasionally grace your table growing up. I’ve had many guests through the years raise an eyebrow when I offer them a dinner of this traditionally dry, often unpleasing hunk of meat…these same guests seem surprisingly pleased when they take […]

Zuppa Toscana (Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free)

I’ve mentioned a number of times how much I love Bountiful Baskets; not only have they reduced our produce costs by hundreds of dollars, every month…I have also been introduced to a number of fruits and vegetables previously unknown to me! Most recently, we received several heads of something called Salad Savoy. Having no clue […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cream of Mushroom Soup (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo, Vegan Option)

With the holidays upon us, there are some staples that one cannot live without this time of the year. Unfortunately, allergies, food sensitivities and auto-immune syndromes can often lead to feeling like we have to miss out on many of our favorite foods. Not so, I say! With the exception of baklava, there are few […]

Over the last 31 days, dozens of bloggers have brought you their very best Healthy Lunchbox ideas, tips and recipes. While I had the pleasure of opening the series with a week’s worth of simply beautiful healthy lunches that included everything from planned-overs to lettuce wraps, it was what came over the days that followed […]
