    Paleo Beef Stew with Sweet Potato + Celery Root (GF/DF/Paleo)

    The weather is finally cooling off and it is the perfect time to create a big batch of this Paleo beef stew with sweet potatoes, carrots, and celery root. I love creating different versions of the classic and this one is absolutely perfect. You get the heartiness from a delicious slab of grass fed and finished chuck roast, the sweetness from the sweet potatoes, and the health benefits of all the other veggies hidden inside. Speaking of health benefits, do you know much about celery root? Celeriac (or celery root as it’s commonly called) is from the same family as celery but it’s actually a completely different plant. The edible part of the…

    Paleo Peach Basil Chicken Salad (GF/DF/Paleo)

    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. Lower blood sugar, protect the heart, settle the stomach, prevent UTI’s, prevent colon cancer, and…

    Coconut Curry Vegetable Soup (GF/DF/V)

    I love soup. I mean, over the years I have just gotten more and more fond of soup. There is so much you can do with soup, it is easy to freeze and makes great leftovers. Basically its a huge melting pot of flavors and textures and I’m all for it. But in order to get an amazing soup you really just need one thing: a good broth. All the flavor is really in the broth so it’s important here. And I have got to tell you this broth is off the chain good. There is a secret foodie ingredient that surprisingly elevates this entire dish to a new level. Can you guess…

    Carrot Ginger Soup (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    Do you like carrot soup? I personally love it and think it’s highly underrated. I make mine with fresh veggies and some simple Indian spices for an extra kick. I love a deep orange colored carrot soup so I only used orange carrots, but feel free to use a variety. Deep purple carrots are the most nutritious thanks to a concentrated source of anthocyaninins, which have more antioxidant activity and more health benefits than the orange variety. Purple carrots are known for their disease fighting properties. They promote heart health, fight inflammation, aide in weight loss, and prevent cancer. There is even a research study showing drinking purple carrot juice reversed all metabolic…

    Zucchini Leek Soup (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    5 ingredient pureed heaven. Seriously, I love soup. I make a lot of pureed vegetable soups in the fall because they are nutrient dense, comforting and filling without weighing you down. They are easier on your digestion than whole vegetable soups too. Plus there’s something about the blending of ingredients that is just divine. This is one of my go-to soups. Do you use leeks? I think they are often overlooked at the grocery store and farmer’s markets but they are a pretty incredible food. The leeks really shine in this soup so let’s talk a little more about them. Leeks are a tall mild allium that have one bulb at the end…
