    Vietnamese Veggie Noodle Bowl w Steak (GF/DF/Paleo)

    I love a good bowl. Especially a noodle bowl. This simple meal will surprise you though: It’s mostly vegetables! I use veggie noodles for 2/3 the dish and rice noodles for the remaining 1/3. That way I feel like I am eating pasta but with less carbs and more nutrients! If you are grain free, just omit the rice noodles altogether. It’s just as delicious. I really enjoy veggie noodles. Do you use them? Carrot and zucchini noodles are my favorite, although I have tried a few others. I do have a spirilizer but sometimes I’m lazy and just pick up a box of frozen carrot noodles from Trader Joe’s. This meal has…

    Paleo Sloppy Joes over Butternut Squash Fries (GF/DF/Paleo)

    This Paleo Sloppy Joes recipe is so special to me. I will never forget when I made it for the first time. My husband was gone at the time (military life) and I had just a newborn baby boy and Penelope (my daughter) at home, so I made this dinner just for the two of us. She was 4 years old. We sat down at the table and she flat out refused to eat it. She literally shook her head, crossed her arms and said “it looks gross.” Per my usually dinnertime rule, I told her “You have to take one bite. Then if you decide you don’t like it, I’m okay with…

    Paleo Pineapple Beef Stir Fry (GF/DF/Paleo)

    Do you meal prep? I hardly ever do. I don’t like routine much so I love to mix things up throughout the week and eat whatever I feel like at the moment. But I admit this totally gets me into trouble. I get busy. I grab snacks instead of a meal. I eat standing up or while I’m in a rush because I didn’t plan properly. I eat sweets for lunch because I have them on hand. I don’t make myself anything and just finish my kids’ food. Not good. Somehow, I finally got motivated and meal prepped over the weekend. I think there was a perfect storm brewing. I bought too much…

    Grass Fed Steak Tacos w Peach Avocado Salsa (GF/DF/Paleo)

    If I had to pick one food to eat for the rest of my life I would choose tacos 100% of the time. I really love tacos. Steak tacos. Chicken tacos. Fish tacos. Vegetarian tacos. I love them all. This is a recipe for a classic steak taco with a summery peach avocado salsa, roasted poblanos, and a lime sour cream drizzle. It’s a 30 minute meal that is easy to make for a crowd or just for your family on a busy weeknight. Always choose grass fed beef. Why? The Importance of Choosing Grass Fed Beef Feedlots are crowded, unsanitary and a miserable life for the animal. Grass fed cows can roam…
