1. Yummy Sweet Potato Gnocchi
Gnocchi are a favorite dish in a handful of different cultures, and these awesome gnocchi are made healthy with sweet potatoes. Almond flour and arrowroot powder with egg white help bind them together, and they’re seasoned with a bit of salt and garlic powder.

2. Cure All Chicken Soup
Chicken soup is known as “Jewish penicillin” for a reason—when done up from scratch with homemade bone broth and whole ingredients, it’s packed with nutrients and goodies to help us heal while keeping us well-nourished and warmed up with love.

3. Roasted Beef Brisket
This beef brisket is full of flavor with seasonings like black pepper, garlic, onion, rosemary, and thyme. Use coconut aminos as a paleo replacement for soy sauce, and if possible, use homemade bone broth for the chicken broth. It’ll offer fantastic additional benefits for your hair, skin, nails, and digestive tract. Healing magic!

4. Chipotle Chicken Soup
Here’s another chicken soup recipe, and this one’s loaded with fun flavors and twists you’ve never tried before. You’ll need onion, garlic, carrot, peppers, chipotle, and other yummy ingredients like pumpkin seeds. Make sure to choose a kosher fat if necessary for the cooking fat, and leave out the cheddar if you want.

5. Grain Free Matzo
Yes—it can be done! This grain free matzo is the product of weeks of work and testing by this blogger, and it’s made with a combination of almond flour, coconut flour, sea salt, egg, olive oil, and water. Such simple ingredients! Better get to work, and check out the blog post for fun serving ideas.
