As you probably know, this Sunday is the Super Bowl. It is an American tradition to watch the event with friends, while foods like chicken wings, overloaded chips and beer are consumed in rather large quantities between shouts and cheers at the TV. Even non-football fans like […]
This paleo Shepherd’s pie always brings me back to England, where my husband and I went to graduate school, spending many a long night deep in the academic trenches of anthropology and biology. It was good fuel for our studious brains, especially on spring nights, when the weather […]
This cauliflower couscous is a refreshing alternative to the wheat-based dish.* It still has all the elements of a Moroccan flavored side dish, while being light and delicate enough for spring. And its good for mopping up sauce of your lamb or chicken stew. This […]
Now, I know that caveman didn’t really order take-out on Friday nights, which is why some people scoff at the idea of “paleo pizza.” But then again, he didn’t watch Amazon streaming videos on Friday nights, either (which go really well with pizza). What does it really matter if the end result is delicious, and still fits within your dietary principles? So if you tend to eat like a caveman, go ahead and have a little fun with your food! No need to feel guilty about chowing down on this wholesome, grain-free paleo pizza crust.
Most grain-free pizza crusts I’ve come across are either made with cauliflower (which I can’t eat because of the FODMAPs), are too eggy, are too bready, or are too much like a cracker. I’m not saying this pizza crust is perfect. Its hard to reach perfection in a pizza crust without grains. But its definitely a good runner-up to the gluteny pizza crusts we used to know and love. This one is light without being too bready, it crisps on the edges nicely without being too dry and is not doughy in the middle. You can even pick up a slice with your hands (if you want) without it falling apart.
Of course, you can add whatever toppings you like to this crust, but one of my favorites is chicken sausage, red peppers and spinach. It makes for a complete meal (pictured above). Goat’s cheese is optional.
If you try this crust, please leave a comment in the suggestions. I want to know how it turned out for you!
This Brazilian Fish Stew sounds and tastes exotic, and yet it is so simple to make. A coconut milk-chicken-stock broth is deepened with paprika and garlic which embraces the delicate flavors of seafood. Even though its often referred to as a stew, there is no thickener added […]

By the time spring rolls around, salads start to look more appealing than cold greens on chilly winter nights did. This salad is one of my favorites to make this time of year. Pea shoots and asparagus herald the first few days of spring, while radish adds a […]
Whether because of leaky gut, autoimmune issues, sensitivity to high concentrations of omega-6s, or even cross contamination, it turns out that many people have problems with sesame. But at least this paleo baba ghanoush can be back on the table!
Back when I developed leaky gut, I reacted to all kinds of foods, and especially seeds of all kinds. Sadly, I had to give up my beloved hummus, which is made with tahini (sesame seed paste). I didn’t even think I could substitute with another favorite of mine, baba ghanoush, until I learned that the Israeli version of the dish uses mayonnaise instead of tahini. It actually gives it a lighter taste, with more of the eggplant flavor coming through. Also, because of the raw garlic, its a good immunity booster. This dish is great as a dip or as a condiment. I like dipping plantain chips into it.
It’s here! Our one-month, winter-themed, paleo meal plan, where the focus is on providing warming, soothing comfort for dark winter nights. More and more people are adopting the paleo diet, as they realize it is not just a fad. It has real benefits and nutritional […]
