Paleo Coleslaw

paleo coleslaw

Coleslaw is one of those sides I’m always bummed out I have to skip at restaurants. There’s such a feeling of nostalgia with coleslaw, going to family picnics on a warm summer day chowing down on watermelon and coleslaw running around with no shoes and not a care in the world. When I switched over to a dairy free lifestyle, coleslaw was one of those things that had to go. Until now 🙂 Enter in Sir Kensington’s mayo to the...

Paleo Taco Salad

paleo taco salad

Tacos have been a staple of my diet for as long as I can remember. When I was younger, I remember my mom getting those corn tortillas from the local grocery store that you tossed in the oven for like 10 minutes and the sour cream, oh the sour cream. There was LOTS of sour cream. When I adjusted my diet to more whole food, nutrition based foods I didn’t want to leave my tacos behind. When I’m trying to...

Salmon Taco Salad

salmon taco salad

I love finding different ways to spice up and switch up my favorite fish salmon. This salmon taco salad fits the bill perfectly. This was the first time I’ve ever tried frying the salmon in a pan and it actually came out perfect. If your not a fan of the skin, fry it up and the skin will have such a perfect crisp you will not even notice it is there. I used a blackened seasoning on top of the...

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...
