Leek and Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

What do you do when you have a bunch of mushrooms on your hands? Why, stuff them, of course! Mushrooms don’t have to be a side character in all of your cooking. Why not give them a starring role and see just how well they can shine? With all of the nutrients they pack, it…

Crispy Fried Green Tomatoes

Green tomatoes may be a challenge to find depending on where you live, but it’s worth the effort. They have a distinct flavor and are what makes this dish go. Fried red tomatoes just don’t have the same ring to them, or flavor. As it turns out you’re getting some extra benefits from eating these…

Paleo Buffalo Chicken Dip (Healthy & Dairy Free)

For a long time I thought I couldn’t indulge in things like buffalo chicken dip because of the Paleo rules. I was in the mentality that dieting meant giving up snack foods like this and depriving myself of good times involving food. But you’ve probably noticed that there are tons of recipes out there that…

Crunchy Cherry Pistachio Paleo Granola Bars

I usually buy raw nuts in bulk as a cost-effective way of gathering ingredients to make my own granola and various other Paleo snacks.

Smoky Paleo Deviled Eggs (MINE!)

I have made classic deviled eggs with small variations many a time, but this new smoky version blew me away. In case you have not made them before, the classic version of the filling…

Addictive Parsnip Fries with Truffle Oil

Small to medium size parsnips are the best choice for cooking. They should be firm and without blemishes. Older or larger parsnips usually develop a woody central core that should be cut out. Parsnips can be boiled, roasted, or sautéed. For this recipe, first peel the parsnips and then cut them into thin fries. Toss…

How to Make the Best Baked Beet Chips (My Friends are OBSESSED with These)

Beets may turn your hands bright pink, but they are loaded with health benefits. I couldn’t believe how many nutrients are packed into the little vegetables. Beets help to flush out toxins from your body. They are also high in fiber, potassium, iron, and vitamins A, B, and C. They help to improve blood flow,…

Homemade Blackberry Paleo Fruit Roll-ups

My idea for the flavor combinations actually came from blackberry smoothies that I really like. It was really simple to convert the blackberry and mint to fruit roll-ups. The first step is to puree the ingredients in a food processor or blender to make a beautiful purple blend. Unlike the strawberries, which I cooked down…
