Pumpkin Whoopie Pies (SCD and Paleo)

Hi friends! I have to tell you, I have been working on this pumpkin whoopie pie recipe FOREVER! Ok, not forever but since August so a really, really long time! I just couldn’t get the consistency right. I tried using just almond flour but found the cookies to be too crumbly. A combination of almond

Slow Cooker Ropa Vieja

Hi friends! Ropa vieja is shredded beef and vegetables that look like a pile of old rags. In Spanish ropa vieja means “old clothes”, so it makes sense that the dish actually looks like a pile of  colorful, old clothes!

Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

Hi Friends! I think it’s safe to say that breakfast is my favorite meal. I feel like what you eat in the morning really sets the tone for the rest of your day. Personally, I find that when I take the time to eat a healthy, filling breakfast I’m less irritable and I make better

Paleo Cashew Cream

Hi friends! This will come as no surprise to those who know me…I have a HUGE sweet tooth! About five years ago I tried giving up sweets and sugar for lent, I made it one day. Yes, you read that right. 1 day!  I had absolutely no will power. Fast forward to the present day

Turmeric Meatloaf

Hi Friends! Growing up I never really liked meatloaf. I don’t know when that changed but now as an adult I love it! I find meatloaf to be comforting. Just the word conjures up images of a 1950’s Donna Reed type housewife in her apron, and since becoming a stay at home mom, I guess

4 Ingredient Cinnamon Banana Pancakes

Hi friends! This is a fast, easy recipe that’s great for a little snack or to add to your weekend brunch menu. Now, these little pancakes don’t have the fluff or rise of traditional pancakes, so I hesitate to even call them that. If you’re looking for a fluffy pancake recipe…this isn’t it! These are

Sweetened Almond Milk

Hi friends! Have you ever had store-bought almond milk? Have you ever glanced at the ingredients in that store-bought almond milk? It’s not pretty! The rule of thumb I try to follow is that if I can’t pronounce the ingredient and/or it’s not something I would typically find in my kitchen, I don’t eat it.

Mint Pea Soup

I know it’s the middle of summer, so posting a soup recipe might seem a bit silly but this one is just too good not to post! For me, summer in Florida means hibernating inside with the A/C cranked! Then when those afternoon/evening thunderstorms come rolling in I always end up craving something comforting, and
