    Paleo Moroccan Chicken with Red Coleslaw (GF/DF/Paleo/AIP)

    Okay I have a secret: I hate long laborious meals. Weird for someone that likes to cook right? I just don’t have the time or patience for it.

    Kale Basil Pesto Meatballs over Spaghetti Squash (GF/DF/AIP/Paleo)

    These delicious kale basil pesto meatballs are “company worthy.” I made them dairy and nut free so they are also Autoimmune Paleo (AIP) friendly. To really up the flavor, I used half ground chicken, half ground pork and fried them in coconut oil. Wow! You’ve gotta try it. This recipe was inspired by the book “The Thyroid Connection” by Dr. Amy Myers. I adapted and altered the recipe quite a bit to suit my liking but all the inspiration came from her. She advocates for an autoimmune paleo protocol for anyone with a thyroid or autoimmune condition. If you think you might be one of those people, I highly recommend her books. She’s…

    Paleo Chicken Apricot Curry (GF/DF/Paleo)

    People have been eating curry for over 4,500 years. Archaeologists were able to identify residues of the traditional curry spices – ginger, garlic and turmeric – in the skeletons and pottery dishes in excavations in India. It is truly an ancient dish. And for good reason. It’s warm, comforting, medicinal and filling. I created this Paleo Chicken Curry especially for my husband’s 37th birthday. It is his absolute favorite meal. I love making curries. I make all different kinds. This one is particularly delicious due to the addition of dried apricots to the stew. It is the perfect balance of sweet, salty and creamy. Did you know there are some serious health benefits…
