    Asian Zucchini Noodle Salad (GF/DF/Paleo)

    I’ve been dying for some Asian noodles. But instead of the wheat and rice laden carb and inflammation overload, I opted for a light and refreshing Asian zucchini noodle salad instead. It turned out amazing. Topped with some sliced grilled grass fed tri-tip (any protein will work) it’s officially on the favorite’s list. For this lunchtime meal, I made a larger batch of the Asian style dressing and used some of it as an overnight marinade for my grass fed tri tip. However, this salad is quite versatile and would be delicious with steak, chicken or even shrimp! The spiralized noodles make it more fun. I have an inexpensive spiralizer that I love.…

    Paleo Fish and Chips with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce (GF/DF/Paleo)

    I know. I know. It looks like a salad. And it kind of is. I can’t help it. I try to add in veggies with all my meals and I also like to throw everything on top of salad. It just makes it more interesting. But don’t fret. These are perfectly delicious on their own. These paleo fish and chips are tender on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I paired them with a sweet tangy dipping sauce and some roasted sweet potato fries. Comfort food is only 30 minutes away! The best part about this meal is that the dipping sauce can double as a salad dressing. I just drizzled it…

    Are you a cilantro lover or hater? I personally love the herb, but I have lots of friends that think it tastes like soap. It is one of the most polarizing herbs I have yet to come across. To me, the more the better which is why I have quite a bit of cilantro in this dish. Plus, there are some really interesting and unique aspects to cilantro. It can help you detox heavy metals by pulling them out of your tissues and binding to them. It can protect you against oxidative stress. Ease anxiety and promote sleep.

    Paleo Chinese Chicken Salad (GF/DF/Paleo)

    I have to be honest with you. Salad is not my favorite. It’s not that I don’t a enjoy a good salad every now and again, but it’s usually not my first choice on a menu. This Chinese Chicken Salad, however, is a game changer. It has the perfect combination of sweet + salty and offers various textures which make it so much more interesting than your plain ol’ everyday salad. Now this is not your typical industrialized seed oil and gluten laden Chinese Chicken Salad. This baby is loaded with antioxidants, vitamin C, healthy fats and sustainable protein. And best of all, it’s a no bake meal so it won’t heat up…

    Gluten Free Mediterranean Salad (GF/DF/V)

    Pasta makes me happy. It’s one of those indulgent dishes that brings back memories of my mom making spaghetti after a long swim practice when I was a kid. I still make pasta, but this time I am a little smarter about what type of pasta I use. Instead of the usual gluten laden blood sugar destroying white pasta, I use chickpea pasta. It has double the protein and 4x the fiber. Plus it’s gluten free and my kids love it. This dish is great once it’s been chilled a few hours in the fridge, but honestly I think it’s even better the next day. It gives the flavors a chance to meld…
