Ginger Garlic Turmeric Stir-Fry (Paleo/AIP)

Posted by in Main Dishes, Recipes

Stir-frys are an easy way to get dinner on the table in no time. I’ve become quite the fan, especially on work days, as I don’t typically get home until about 6:00 PM and am definitely ready to eat. This recipe has all you need to feel satiated: a good dose of healthy fat, protein, and carbohydrates in the form of tons of vegetables, which provide loads of nutrients.  Not only are the seasonings from ginger, garlic, and turmeric super tasty, they also provide many health benefits to the body with their…read more

Ground Lamb and Kale Delicata Squash Boats (Paleo/AIP)

Posted by in Main Dishes, Recipes

Moist, creamy, and flavorful, delicata squash is one of my favorite starchy veggies. I first tried it years ago when it showed up in my CSA box from my good friend Ryan’s farm Steel Wheel Farm. Now my husband and I grow some veggies ourselves in a garden, and this year we successfully tried growing delicata squash. In late summer it completely took over the garden and became our most abundant crop. Typically I chop this squash into rings, remove the seeds, and bake with coconut oil for about 30 minutes, but recently, in…read more

Bagna Cauda Inspired Zoodles (Paleo/AIP)

Posted by in Main Dishes, Recipes

Bagna cauda is a traditional Italian “hot bath” made with olive oil, butter, garlic, and anchovies.  Similar to fondue, it’s eaten by dipping meat and vegetables into the “bath” to soak up the flavors. Although there’s no known Italian ancestry in my family, my dad’s side of the family hails from Croatia, directly across the Adriatic Sea from Italy, and we had a tradition of eating bagna cauda at family get togethers when I was young. The pungent smell of garlic and anchovies brings back fond childhood memories and makes my mouth water for that wonderful, unique…read more

Deconstructed Sushi Roll (Paleo/AIP)

Posted by in Main Dishes, Recipes

I love sushi rolls, but they’ve been off my table for a while since I’m not currently eating rice. My deconstructed sushi roll incorporates all the flavors you get from the real thing with seaweed cauliflower “rice” making a tasty base for this recipe. As my husband and I regularly eat salmon, I’m always looking for different ways to flavor it for variety. I had the idea to marinate it in coconut aminos (a soy-free version of soy sauce) and wasabi powder and pair it with seaweed cauliflower “rice.” To round it out, I topped this dish…read more

Nutrient-Dense Bacon Mushroom Burgers (AIP Friendly)

Posted by in Main Dishes, Recipes

I’ve met few people who enjoy sitting down to a big plate of liver and onions, and generally, it seems most diners avoid organ meats because of the yuck factor. I’ve found that “hiding” them in meals works well for me, and this recipe is a tasty way to do just that with the addition of mildly flavored chicken liver. Why would you want to eat liver anyway? Aside from the yuck factor, many people avoid eating liver because they believe the liver stores toxins. However, as Chris Kresser explains: “A popular objection…read more

Pan Fried Dover Sole (AIP Friendly)

Working full time, going to school, and eating a restrictive diet to heal my body has been quite a challenge for me to manage time-wise! This recipe has come to the rescue on nights I haven’t felt like cooking, and thankfully, it’s super tasty and healthy too! Health Benefits of Eating Fish High in omega 3 essential fatty acids, fish benefits the body by helping reduce inflammation.
