    Paleo Coconut Shrimp with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce (Paleo/GF/DF)

When you go to a restaurant and order coconut shrimp, you end up with a plate full of inflammatory industrialized seed oils, farmed shrimp and some unhealthy breading. But at home you can make them with nourishing ingredients, healthy unrefined coconut oil and the much superior wild caught shrimp. For a few more delicious sea food recipes and an explanation as to why I buy wild caught seafood check out these two posts: Sweet Potato Pasta with SautĂ©ed Shrimp Paleo Coconut Crusted…

    Chicken Pot Pie Soup (GF/DF/Paleo/Whole 30)

Usually this type of soup is thickened with white flour. But I opted to thicken mine with pureed parsnips. It added a hint of sweetness to the dish which was delish, but if you don’t like that flavor try white potato…
