A.I.P. Beef Stew

A little while ago I made a yummy beef stew, but only problem is those on an A.I.P. Paleo diet can’t eat it. The tomatoes and potatoes can be a digestive nightmare.  So I decided it was time to attempt an autoimmune Paleo version. Instead of tomato, pumpkin purée is used…and instead of potato, plantain….

Raw Coconut Lime Squares

Ahhh…lime and coconut are so good together. It’s just one of those undeniable combinations that I can’t resist! Put the lime in the coconut…hehe it makes me so happy.  Now it’s not a coincidence that today I’m posting my raw coconut lime squares. It’s St. Patty’s Day! So I thought I’d get in on the…

Paleo Vanilla Coffee Creamer

Mmm there’s nothing better than coffee in the morning. But what happens to your daily cup of joe when you go Paleo? Well, if you ask me, it gets yummier!  As much as I like dairy cream in my coffee, I’ve realized that canned coconut milk or coconut cream is AMAZING in coffee! It’s the…

Paleo “Cheesy” Broccoli and Bacon Stuffed Potatoes 

When I was growing up, almost every Christmas Eve we would have stuffed potatoes. It was pretty much a yearly treat, so I savoured every last bite. Mmm. This past Christmas I found myself craving those stuffed potatoes of my childhood, but then quickly dismissed the idea. See, those lovely potatoes contained cheese. A lot…

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream

This post has been years in the making. My husband bought me an ice cream maker 4 years ago to make dairy-free ice cream because we are absolutely obsessed with the stuff. (And because store-bought dairy-free ice cream is prrrrricey). Shortly after I started making my own dairy-free ice cream with coconut milk, I realized…

Paleo Chocolate-Banana Cake

Just in time for Valentine’s Day…ooey, gooey, fudgy chocolate cake. Ahhh. That’s what I think of when I think of Valentine’s Day.  My husband and I don’t make a huge deal about Valentine’s, but I do like to have something chocolatey around. It just feels nice to celebrate even though it’s snowy and cold outside. …

Vanilla Latte: 2 Ways

I’ve been very much into delicious drinks lately. A little while ago my husband and I realized we were going to Starbucks a bit too much. Those drinks add up fast! So I became determined to make our favourite special drinks at home. While my drinks may not taste exactly like pricey coffee house beverages, they…

Vanilla Iced Matcha Latte

I used to dislike Matcha green tea, in any form. Especially in lattes. What changed? Banana!! Just by blending in half a banana, it totally changes the flavour and texture of an iced Matcha latte. I’m glad I found a way to enjoy my Matcha because the benefits are amazing! High in antioxidants  Contains EGCg…

Decadent Paleo Hot Chocolate

This winter I have seriously got into hot chocolate. Went for a walk? Hot chocolate. Going on a road trip? Hot chocolate. Rough day? Hot chocolate. Lol! But really, most nights of the week I find myself with a hot chocolate in my hand, as my daily treat. There’s something so cozy and comforting about…

Pumpkin Spice Noatmeal 

I know it’s not fall time anymore, but I feel like I missed the pumpkin spice boat this year…busy having a baby and all. So now that I have a bit more time to play in the kitchen, I’m mixing up yummy pumpkin spice creations!! One of those is my Pumpkin Spice Noatmeal! It’s kinda…

What I Ate Today

Part of my plan for getting back to eating healthy, is to journal what I eat. I find taking a picture is the fastest way. So I thought I’d share what my day of eating looks like. I don’t count calories because I believe that nutritionally dense foods interact differently in the body than just…
