Fig Zucchini Pasta with Hemp Seed Crumble

Figs are now in season!!  I’ve found them at farmers markets and at Whole Foods (get organic if you can).  Fig season is early August through October, peaking around Labor Day.  They taste AMAZING and are so good for you (and your sex life). Health benefits of figs: Great source of fiber to help digestive […]

Paleo Shrimp Fried Rice

Remember the “incredible edible egg” slogan?  I feel like there needs to be something like that for cauliflower.  For Paleo folks, cauliflower fills in for a number of non-Paleo foods such as rice, pizza crust, mashed potatoes, hummus, and risotto to name a few.  Of course lots of Paleoites do eat white potatoes and white […]

Veggie Noodles with Cashew-Cilantro Pesto

Even though I have many Paleo cookbooks and can find hundreds of Paleo recipes available online, I couldn’t resist this Paleo Recipes magazine at the grocery store checkout.  The yummy Avocados Topped 8 Ways on the cover was irresistible, the pictures gorgeous and the recipes easy.  There are also a few pages explaining the Paleo […]

Paleo Fish Tacos with Pineapple Cilantro Salsa

I’ve been trying to eat more fish at home.  I order fish often when dining out but just don’t find myself cooking it very often.  Not sure why I am reluctant as it always turns out to be surprisingly easy, and this Paleo Fish Tacos recipe from NomNomPaleo, recently published in Sunset magazine, is no […]

My New Favorite Skillet Dinner

I am a big fan of the skillet dinner.  One big skillet, a pound of ground meat, lots of veggies, some good oil and you’ve got a healthy dinner on the table in about half a hour.  The even better part?  Leftovers for heating up in a skillet with over easy, runny yolk eggs for […]

5-Minute Blender Porridge

Breakfast for me is usually eggs either as a scramble or omelet with veggies, or my favorite over easy eggs on top of leftovers like ground beef skillets (last week’s skillet was ground beef, marinated grilled artichokes, sundried tomatoes, summer squash and swiss chard – so yummy). On occasion though I like to mix it […]

Cranberry Waldorf Salad and Cranberry Sauce

Every family has their traditional Thanksgiving dishes.  If you have changed your diet lifestyle, you will find that some of those “old” foods are still worth it that one time a year, others not so much.  A change to eating organic, whole foods provides a great opportunity to find new favorites that taste fantastic and […]

Paleo Pumpkin Muffins

Despite my recent declaration that I don’t make paleo treats very often, here I am again this weekend making something slightly decadent for my family.  My excuse this time?  The kids are home from college on Fall Break. Nothing says fall like pumpkin and these muffins don’t disappoint. I did a little internet surfing for […]

Paleo Coconut Bars

We don’t have treats very often, and less often now that the kids are back at college.  But every once in a while we have a hankering for something a bit sweet, but don’t want to wander too far off the Paleo reservation.  When that happens I usually check out Elana’s Pantry for ideas.  She […]

Salmon Quiche

This is a recipe I have been making for many years from a cookbook called “Eating Well When You Just Can’t Eat the Way You Used To”.  When our kids were little they loved having “salmon pie”.  I loved getting healthy salmon into them! You could make this quiche with an almond flour crust, but […]
