Spinach Turkey Burgers

spinach turkey burgers

Man I dig turkey burgers, a lot. I mean in my hey day I was able to down beef hamburgers like there was no tomorrow, but I’ve always had a sweet spot for turkey burgers. I remember growing up my mom buying the Jenni-O ground turkey and chopping it into those cute little squares, served up with beans, cottage cheese and other stuff. It’s like Thanksgiving dinner, only in the form of a hamburger. When I make my spinach turkey...

Paleo Blueberry Waffles

Why have I never had blueberry waffles before? I mean when it comes to food I’ve also been on the traditional side of the fence, but man blueberries just bring it up another level! I just love Birchbenders Paleo Pancake and Waffle mix. It’s so easy to toss together (base recipe calls for just mix, oil and water!). I added a little extra to make these paleo blueberry waffles something you definitely want to make for weekend brunch, #wafflewednesday or...

Paleo Turkey Meatballs and Zoodles

paleo turkey meatballs

Spaghetti has always been a staple in my home, until that whole carb gluten thing started posing a problem as an adult. When I was dealing with the worst symptoms of PCOS, it was very important to me to make sure that I was keeping to clean foods that would help me improve my symptoms, no matter how good that spaghetti tastes. I’ve known about spaghetti squash and zucchini noodles as replacements for traditional wheat based noodles, but how to...

Healthy Plantain Chips

I’ll admit it, I’m a chip addict. There’s just something about that crunchy goodness that makes everything all better. I mean it makes everything all better, until the bag is completely gone. Now by no means am I saying eat this entire batch of healthy plantain chips, but feel free to enjoy these without the guilt brought on by regular chips. Plantains are a rich source of fiber and potassium, and also magnesium which can also help with everything from...

Paleo Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Chocolate chia seed pudding is a great alternative to traditional, high sugar puddings you will find in regular grocery stores. It’s perfect for those mornings when cooking breakfast is just not an option, or a quick snack after a workout. Chocolate chia seed pudding is super quick to make, and most of the ingredients you’ll have lying around in the pantry anyways. I started making these recently because I like to take a break from eggs in the mornings every...

Easter Paleo Truffles

Chocolate is the  international food of Easter, and these easter paleo truffles hit all the right notes when it comes to hitting the chocolate quota. Best of all, it utilizes all paleo approved, clean ingredients. I know how hard it is when your trying to lose weight or stay true to the whole 30 when you show up to your family’s house on Easter and there’s chocolate and those disgusting little Peeps everyone (stay away from those things, FAR AWAY)....

Avocado Dairy Free Pesto

Dairy Free Pesto

This recipe for dairy free pesto seriously goes great on and in anything. When I was diagnosed with PCOS, I was advised to give up dairy, and unfortunately that meant everything pesto. I’m a sucker for a good pesto basil chicken sandwich, so this was kind of a bummer. But thanks to the wonderful world of the inter webs, I found tons of various dairy free pesto recipes using a variety of different ingredients. I’ve seen recipes that use different...

Paleo Cupcakes

Paleo Cupcakes

I love paleo cupcakes, especially for my favorite holidays, like everyday. The problem with conventional cupcakes mixes is that they come loaded with extra nonsense that gives you a hard sugar crash hours later. That’s why I’m so glad I got into the paleo sphere, because I found brands like Simple Mills. They use clean, easy to pronounce ingredients that not only provide good nutrients, they also make the fluffiest cake I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. I...
