  • Paleo Taco Shell Bowl (AIP)

    Paleo Taco Shell Bowl (AIP)

    (Note: This post may contain affiliate links. Read more about them here.) In a little corner of Disneyland, there’s a cafe that serves Mexican-American Cuisine, and the most amazing taco bowl salads ever. The cafe is called Rancho del Zocalo, and if you can eat grains and legumes, then I highly recommend chowing down on […]

  • Paleo Grasshopper Chocolate Cupcakes

    Paleo Grasshopper Chocolate Cupcakes

    (Note: This post may contain affiliate or product links. Read more about them here.) About a year ago I discovered this cupcake recipe, and I haven’t been the same since. And then I created this grasshopper frosting to top them off with! Even though they are paleo, they are so close to being real grasshopper […]

  • Protein-style hamburgers and Flaming Hot Sweet Potato Fries

    I believe I am obsessed with healthy food. Usually I would say that obsessions should be controlled, but this would be the one exception! What better than to be obsessed with caring for my body? When we were first married, my husband would always order a “protein-style” hamburger at Inn-N-Out, while I would always order […]

  • Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

    I cannot remember the first time I made a chocolate chip cookie. I know that before I made them, we rarely ever had homemade cookies. There is no engraved memory of me picking up a bag of chocolate chips and saying, Mom! Can I bake some cookies? There is no memory of me carefully following […]

  • Raw Nut-tastic Brownie Bites!

    Since starting on this crazy gluten-free adventure I have had to adjust my tastes to new favorites, and have never found anything that tasted EXACTLY like the non-healthy version. I have spent hours revamping recipes to get them “close enough.”  I have yet to find a GF cookie recipe that I like. And I’m not sure […]

  • Almond Banana Spice Muffins

    The first time I started baking on my own I was almost eight years old. Before that my mom and always let us help make our birthday cakes, but at seven years old my mom introduced me to the box muffin mix. And I swear I made them every day for years. I remember feeling […]

  • Chocolate Coconut Cream Pie–Gluten-free and Dairy free!

    This is absolutely our favorite dessert. Raw coconut pudding from a Young Thai coconut in an almond flour pie crust. To. Die. For. And totally worth sharing.  Right before Thanksgiving last year I practically went on a manhunt to find a decent gluten-free pie crust recipe. It was brutal. But thank goodness I stumbled upon […]

  • Eating Out? Part 2

    While my husband and I try to make clean food choices while eating at chain restaurants (which by-the-way, have you ever tried the salads at California Pizza Kitchen? They are to die for), we also have found some specialty restaurants that really excel in the healthy, delicious food category.  Like Mountain West Burrito.  Which is […]

  • Eating Out?

    So I have to admit that we don’t always eat organic produce and cook everything from scratch. That would be insane and I would probably go mental. We definitely eat at least 80/20. Eighty percent clean, twenty percent….well…not as clean. Where do you eat when you are trying to eat clean? There are lots of […]
