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

    We are going through a heat wave in Arizona and I refuse to turn on the oven. So out comes the super simple stovetop meals like this incredible paleo coconut shrimp. 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)

    I love chicken pot pie. It’s the ultimate comfort food, am I right? Of course, it’s considered one of the unhealthiest foods in America. (No kidding, Marie Calender’s Chicken Pot Pie made #1 in the top 20 unhealthiest grocery store foods list.) So I set out to create the same delicious comfort food but with a quarter the calories and 10x the nutrient density. Cue, my 30 Minute Chicken Pot Pie Soup. 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…
