Happy July everyone! July is smack dab in the middle of those summertime festivities, and nothing says summer more than barbecue. These stuffed bbq chicken sweet potatoes are the perfect mix of everything that I love in this world, but are also sure to be a hit at any Fourth of July bash. I remember when I was younger I used to love conventional baked potatoes loaded with butter, sour cream and any other goodies I could find. It’s funny...

With just a few ingredients, this paleo dill sauce is a must for the next time your trying to figure out how to dress up your salmon. As you may have noticed, I’m down for salmon anything.

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

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 Turkey Meatballs and Zoodles

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...

Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

I’m obsessed with sweet potato fries. They are the perfect paleo side dish, if I can find them with a turkey burger that’s a home run for me. I decided to try making them at home, and they really hit the spot. Unlike most processed sweet potato fries, when you make them from scratch your passing up the fillers and added sugars for spicy paleo side awesomeness. You can buy pre-cut sweet potato fries in the produce section of your...

Spaghetti Squash with Marinara and Turkey

I’ve always wondered how people made spaghetti out of spaghetti squash. I mean those things are like pumpkins, how on earth can you not only make spaghetti out of that, but does it taste good? Well I decided to give it a try, and not only did it taste good, getting spaghetti-like noodles out of the squash wasn’t as hard as I assumed it would be. Besides being a great low carb alternative, spaghetti squash has a fair amount of...

Roasted Chicken Sausage with Potatoes and Squash

Chicken Sausage Scramble

I like to mix things up food wise (and in life) every now and then so things don’t get stale and boring. I love roasted chicken sausage and potatoes but it got a little dull eating those alone every week, so I thought hey why not toss a whole bunch of stuff in a frying pan and see what happens? Well I can tell you magic happened. The spices are what really makes this meal pop. If your like me...

Lemon Pepper Salmon

Lemon Pepper Salmon

I love salmon. I mean that’s the only fish that I can tolerate. Salmon is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, vitamin B12 and protein, all of which benefit the cardiovascular system and overall general health. There’s so many different ways to prepare salmon, but I like it crispier or “blackened” as it’s referred to in those fancy restaurants. I like to keep it simple with very few ingredients. I also prefer to spend the extra money...
