10 Paleo-Friendly Family Dinner Ideas

So many people are finding out that they have gluten or dairy sensitivities these days. Personally, I don’t have any dietary sensitivities, but I definitely feel my best when I at least restrict these foods (especially foods with gluten.). I feel more alert and energetic in general, which is why I try to eat paleo about 80% of the time.

Sweet Potato Spice Latte {Paleo; Vegan}

Sweet Potato Spice Latte {Paleo; Vegan} 1

This Sweet Potato Spice Latte recipe uses sweet potato puree instead of pumpkin for a fun twist on a favorite fall drink. Plus, it’s paleo and vegan, adapted from Kathy Hester’s lovely The Easy Vegan Cookbook. If you know me in person you know I’m not really comfortable being in the spotlight. I’m rather shy, actually, at least until I get to know someone. And although I enjoy meeting new people, my happy place really is in the peace and quiet of my own home with the person I love most....

Weeknight Italian-Style Beef Meatballs Simmered in Tomato Sauce {Gluten-Free} and DIY Warm Autumn Spice Room Spray

Italian-Style Beef Meatballs Simmered in Tomato Sauce {Gluten Free} 1

This Weeknight Italian-Style Beef Meatballs Simmered in Tomato Sauce recipe comes together easily for a delicious weeknight meal. Jarred tomato sauce works well here and when you’re done, I show you how to re-purpose the empty mason jar into spray bottle for DIY Warm Autumn Spice Room Spray! Some meals are always saved for special occasions. Usually if it’s just my hubby and I for dinner and pasta is on the menu, I whip up a quick tomato sauce with browned ground beef. Meatballs in my house usually mean a special occasion, mostly because I typically don’t take the time to make them. But this […]...

Strawberry and Cream Smoothie Bowl

Strawberry and Cream Smoothie Bowl 1

Every spring I look forward to picking strawberries the same way I look forward to picking apples in fall. It’s like a seasonal rite of passage. But then when the time actually comes to do the picking, typically my basket isn’t even halfway full when I end up thinking about how much easier it would be to just buy the fruit pre-picked. So it goes every year, lol....

Paleo Pumpkin Spice Pancakes {For One}

DSC_3638(small)2

I can’t imagine a holiday dinner without turkey and all the trimmings. Not just for Thanksgiving; we don’t eat pork (so ham is out of the question), and Christmas calls for a big turkey dinner as well. We don’t mind. Actually, we love it so much, we usually make one other full turkey dinner in late winter/early spring just for the heck of it. Creatures of habit, we are. Similarly, Thanksgiving brunch always means a pumpkin treat will be on the menu. That is just how it goes, and it’s something everyone looks forward to....

Pina Colada Smoothie {Frozen Treat Week}

Pina Colada Smoothie1

The final treat I’m sharing in honor of Frozen Treat Week is a real doozy. In keeping with the other two healthy treats I’ve shared for this event (3-Minute Easy Cherry-Chocolate Sorbet and Almost-Instant Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Soft Serve), today’s treat is equally healthy. And every bit as delicious. I’m not even kidding when I say that last summer I don’t think I touched a carton of ice cream once because of this smoothie. And that’s not to say that I didn’t crave ice cream....

Almost-Instant Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Soft Serve {Frozen Treat Week}

DSC_1572(small)

By now I’m sure most of you have heard of banana soft serve. (If not, you will absolutely die when you try it.) Also called “yonanas”, banana soft serve is frozen banana blended with whatever flavorings (like vanilla extract, cocoa powder, espresso powder, etc.) or add-ins (like toasted almonds, coconut, chocolate chips, etc.) you like. The best part is that it has the same creamy texture as soft serve ice cream. (The first time I ever saw banana soft serve was on Gena’s brilliant blog, Choosing Raw.) As you can imagine, this delicious treat is incredibly versatile and completely perfect for when you want ice […]...

3-Minute Easy Cherry-Chocolate Sorbet {Frozen Treat Week}

DSC_1349(small)2

There are so many things that I make for myself on a near-daily basis that I just don’t think about sharing the recipe for. Silly things. Like this caramelized onion + goat cheese omelet, this cabbage hash + fried eggs, or this pretty little breakfast number. Or an almost-instant, healthy treat (that I promise tastes more indulgent than healthy), like this cherry-chocolate sorbet that can be easily whipped up when a sweet craving strikes....
