    5 Minute Peanut Butter Caramel Sauce (GF/DF/V)

    It’s no surprise to anyone that I love peanut butter. It’s really one of my favorite things on the planet. No, it’s not technically paleo because it’s a legume but I really don’t care. It’s delicious! The best part is, this peanut butter caramel sauce only has 3 ingredients and takes about 5 minutes to make! I suppose you could use almond butter in this recipe, but I’m not sure it would have the same incredible melt in your mouth effect. Okay, I’m sure it would I’m just partial to peanut butter. For some reason, the combination of peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla bean is out of this world good. Do you…

    The Best Homemade Fig Jam (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    What’s your favorite on the go snack? My go to is a delicious DIY Peanut Butter or Almond Butter bar, smeared with some nut butter and fig jam on top. My favorite is Nutsola DIY Superfood Peanut Butter Bar (check out my Shop My Favorites for a 15% off code). But you could pick up any Paleo / Gluten friendly bar for this. I love figs. My kids love figs. So instead of buying sugar and preservative laden fig jam at the store, I decided to make my own. And let me tell you, it tastes so fresh and delicious you will never go back to store bought! The recipe is super simple…

    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 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…

    Paleo Buffalo Chicken + Cauliflower w Homemade Ranch (GF/DF/Paleo)

    Who likes things spicy? I totally do. If you’re like me, you’ve got to try these hot wing style drumsticks and cauliflower. It’s the perfect combo! And if you are vegetarian, just omit the chicken. The cauliflower is good enough to be a meal on it’s own! DID YOU KNOW: White cauliflower has more cancer fighting compounds than green and purple cauliflower, but the colorful varieties are higher in antioxidants. Moral of the story? Mix it up and buy both! Unlike broccoli which looses its nutrients quickly, cauliflower can be stored up to a week in the fridge without compromising its nutritional value. In this recipe I used white cauliflower because I like…
