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 […]
Chicken pot pies are the ultimate comfort food, but of course, the traditional way of making them includes a lot of gluten, dairy and often an unnecessary amount of sugar. This paleo pot pie recipe uses pureed parsnip as the “cream.” The crust uses a healthy dose of coconut oil to sneak in some good fats.
Some healthy diet challenges, like “Whole Life” or “Whole 30” restrict the use of arrowroot. In my opinion, in small doses its probably ok, but if you really can’t eat it, your pie will be fine without it. The crust just may bit a little more tricky to hold together. Who cares? As long as it tastes good. And it does. 🙂
You don’t have to give up this classic comfort food dish, just because you’ve gone grain-free. Hearty beef paired with a garlicky tomato sauce make this spaghetti squash and meatballs wholly satisfying. This recipe makes enough to feed my family one night, then to freeze the […]
If you’re missing oatmeal or hot cereal, this grain-free porridge will surely satisfy. Soaking the nuts overnight eliminates the phytates and lectins which can be harmful to healing guts. I make a big batch the first time around, then reheat leftovers quickly on busy weekday mornings. Feel free to dress it up with your favorite toppings!
I love making almond flour pancakes, but they are a bit tricky to flip sometimes, and they turn dark brown pretty quickly. The batter for these plantain pancakes holds together nicely, browns perfectly, and is a wonderful substitute for anyone who has a nut allergy. You can […]
The perfect morsel of cool, creamy and piquant. Deviled eggs are naturally paleo. Well they should be, anyway. Unless your mayonnaise is made with soybean oil. These paleo deviled eggs are made with avocado oil mayonnaise (although your own homemade version will work just as well). […]
I love spicy food and I love garlic. But when I went on the low FODMAPs diet, I had to alter the way I eat garlic, and sadly had to take the popular chili-garlic sauce, known to many by its brand name, Sriracha, off the table. And if I want to make a meal that works for both the adults and the kids in my family (which I do, because I don’t want to make more the one meal each evening!), then I had to come up with a chili-garlic sauce that is also mild, since the kids’ palates aren’t ready for heat yet. Adults can always sprinkle some hot pepper flakes on top, if they are missing the heat aspect of the sauce. Use this “mild Sriracha” sauce for the almond butter sauce that goes with your paleo Satay skewers or wherever you think you need an extra boost of flavor.
While this is a very easy recipe, the roasting of the pepper and the infusing of the garlic does take a little time, so plan in advance! For a time saving tip in the future, I actually roast a ton of peppers at the end of their growing season, then slice and freeze until needed.
This is easy and fun recipe will make sure your little one doesn’t accidentally ingest gluten when playing with original play dough. Story My daughter had the most wonderful pre-school teacher. She was so understanding and accommodating when it came to food allergies. And instead of […]
