20 Minute Lemon Garlic Butter Salmon

Salmon in my absolute favorite food. I say that a lot when I try something new, but salmon is still really my favorite. It’s one of the quickest and easiest things to cook in a pinch! Plus I always feel as though I am being extra healthy when I eat fish. Is that...

Dairy Free Pumpkin Ice Cream

Fall is upon us. Temperatures will start to drop and leaves will begin to change. Well, unless you live in Texas. Fall? But, uh… it’s still 100+ degrees outside. Raised in the north, fall brings me images of changing leaves, darker and colder...

Blueberry, Ginger & Toasted Coconut Smoothie

Last week I was interviewed by Kara, who works for Bill and Hayley of Primal Palate. It was so exciting to be interviewed for Primal Palate, because Bill and Hayley are amazing bloggers and cookbook authors. I really look up to them and the work that they have done....

50/50 Stuffed Peppers

Ohmygosh. Real life just slapped me in the face. After spending the year focusing on getting healthier, I’m finally actually busy again. The past seven months I have put almost all of my free time into blogging, and now I get to balance blogging with work and...

S’mores Pudding Jars

This week I was so fortunate to guest post on Paleo Parents! As soon as I found out about the opportunity, I wrote down 100 different ideas for the recipe that I could create. Well, after I first freaked out and did an embarrassing little excited dance if I’m being...

Simple Spaghetti Squash

You know what makes me mad? Throughout high school, whenever I had to speak in speech class or present a class project, I was always really good about not using filler words. Other people would give presentations and say ‘like’ or ‘um’ every...

Thai Red Pork Curry

Curry is one of my new favorite things. I think I say that a lot when I tried new foods. Before I decided to make curry out of the pork I bought a few weeks ago, I had never tried any kind of curry before. Actually, I don’t recall ever trying any Thai food at...

Buffalo Chicken Skewers

With starting school and a new job, life is about to get very busy. This is another reason I didn’t want to leave Colorado. I knew I’d being starting work literally the day after I arrived home, and I didn’t want the ease of summer to end. With less...

Oreo Truffles

Maybe, if you saw my last post for date paste, I got you all excited about special fruit-sweetened recipes coming up. These actually aren’t those treats. They are full on sweetened, delicious and indulgent truffles that my family fell in love with. I even gave...

How To Make Date Paste

Today’s quick post is a simple recipe for date paste. I always opt to sweeten grain-free treats with fruit if I can, and this makes date paste one of my latest obsessions. Date paste is naturally sweet and delicious, good enough to eat straight off the spoon!...

Lamb Meatballs with Cauliflower Puree

I’m typing this post up from Denver! Before, when I said that I’ve always known that I will love it here? So right. I haven’t even spent any time really seeing the city yet, but I just love the vibe. There seems to be so much to do without having to...

Chocolate Covered Donuts

Here’s what I learned this week: Appropriate real food theater snacks: plantain chips, bananas with nut butter, beef jerky or fruit and nut bars. Things not to eat at the movie theater: half a sweet potato stuffed with ground beef and broccoli. 6:30 is really an...
