Grain-free Paleo Pizza Crust. Low-FODMAP, too!

Grain-free Paleo Pizza Crust. Low-FODMAP, too!

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 […]

Paleo Turkey Meatloaf

Paleo Turkey Meatloaf

This paleo turkey meatloaf is one of my son’s favorite “comfort foods.” Its best to use ground turkey thighs, or find ground turkey meat with a higher fat percentage if you can find it. I try to cook a variety of meats throughout the week, so as not […]

Paleo Baba Ghanoush

Paleo Baba Ghanoush

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 […]

Danish shrimp salad

Danish shrimp salad

This traditional Danish shrimp salad is such a simple dish to make, and yet it is so delicious. The best shrimp are the tiny North Atlantic shrimp or Maine shrimp. Their delicate flavor doesn’t require much but a squeeze of lemon and a dollop of mayonnaise. […]

This paleo New England Clam Chowder is a gluten-free, dairy-free, healthier version of the traditional soup. When my husband and I first met, we experienced one of the coldest winters on record in Washington, DC. We had the romantic idea of going to New York City […]

Fried Plantains

Fried Plantains

Fried plantains. In Costa Rica they call them platanos maduros. In Mali, they call them loko. In fact, this wonder fruit is common street food all over Africa, as well as in Latin America. Once you take your first bite, you will easily see why. These mature […]

Paleo Chicken Cacciatore

Paleo Chicken Cacciatore

This paleo chicken cacciatore is a gluten-free, version of the Italian ‘hunter’s stew.’ It should be naturally gluten-free, but these days people put all kinds of things in their stews to thicken it up. I just use tomato paste. Traditionally, this stew is made up […]

Wilted Spinach with Butternut Squash and Cranberries

Wilted Spinach with Butternut Squash and Cranberries

The warm, velvety texture of wilted spinach with butternut squash makes it appealing to eat your salad on a cold winter night. And who said you can only eat cranberries on Thanksgiving? Unfortunately, those store-bought dried cranberries have refined sugar added to them. And I […]
