Cranberry Sweet Potato Turkey Poppers (Paleo, AIP, Whole 30)

When I first shard the sweet potato chicken popper during the Super Bowl last year, I had no idea how much everyone would love them! My mother in law immediately brought them as a Super Bowl appetizer and told me how popular they were, and their popularity soon...

Paleo Zuppa Toscana In The Instant Pot (Whole 30 & AIP)

Growing up in an Italian family in New York, I was always a bit of an Italian food snob. My maiden name is very Italian, and my dad, who’s name happens to be Vinny, always joked the spaghetti sauce runs through his veins. My love for legitimate Italian food only grew...

Asian Chicken Poppers (Paleo, Whole 30, AIP)

Back in the day when I had a terrible meat aversion (I wasn't a vegetarian, I was a french fry-itarian) the only way I would eat meat is if it was in chicken nugget or hibachi chicken form. Seriously, I can count the number of times in my life that I had beef before I...

Easy AIP Lunch Ideas On The Go

Starting the autoimmune protocol can daunting in a lot of different respects. “What do I do when I eat out?”, “What do I have for breakfast?”, “What do I have for lunch?”, “What do I bring to work/school?”. Though I’m always learning and evolving, I feel like I've...

Breakfast Sausage Chicken Poppers (Paleo, Whole 30, AIP)

  Who doesn't love breakfast sausage? It's the perfect way to round out any breakfast and actually make it satiating! When I stopped eating carb bombs like big bowls of sugary cereal, bagel smothered in cream cheese, and syrup covered waffles, I turned to eggs...

Easy Poké Bowl (Paleo, Whole 30, AIP)

I don't know what happened and when, but Poké is super hot all of sudden. Remember when frozen yogurt was widely popular? Poke is basically following in it's footsteps right now in the US. Tons of chains are popping up with custom bowls, options to...

Bacon Ranch Zucchini Noodle Pasta Salad (Paleo, AIP, Whole 30)

When I ask myself the question, "What flavors do I add to make this taste really, really good?", the answer is often "bacon and ranch". It's savory, creamy, and a total crowd pleaser all around, which is important for this time of year that's filled with...

Plantain Carnitas Nachos (Paleo, AIP, Whole 30)

When it comes to comfort food, I've always been much more of a pizza person rather than nachos and tacos. I always thought nachos were salty, greasy, and not "bread-y" enough (because your girl loved some bread). I never really ate them or had them around too much....

Bacon Ranch Chicken Poppers (Paleo, Whole 30, AIP)

You guys. They're back. When I first made my sweet potato chicken popper recipe, I fell in love fast. I was so excited to share them with the world and knew that they an amazing game day or party food that all guests would love. I shared them as a super bowl food and...

Slow Cooker Carnitas (AIP, Paleo & Whole 30)

I was never really a big Mexican or Tex Mex food fan growing up. I grew up in an Italian family with Jewish roots in New York, so bagels and lox were my tacos, and marinara sauce (or if you're really legit, gravy) ran through my veins. Little did I know I'd eventually...

Carrot Leek Spring Soup (Paleo, AIP, Whole 30)

Happy almost Mother's Day! Soup in general always reminds me of my mom... she loves soup. My mom grew up in Budapest, Hungary where she apparently ate a lot of it, and I always felt pressured to like it. I never really wanted soup as a kid or a teen,...

Chicken Fajita Bowls (AIP, Paleo, Whole 30)

It's not always easy to be confident about making your old favorites AIP friendly. I've often asked myself, "Can I really make a pizza without cheese?", "How can I make oatmeal without oats?" My most recent question was, "How can I make fajitas without peppers and...

Sweet Potato Chicken Poppers (Paleo, AIP & Whole 30)

These chicken poppers are gluten free, paleo, AIP, and egg free, while still being delicious enough to fool anyone who regularly eats otherwise! Sweet Potato Chicken Poppers Are the Healthy Comfort Food You've Been Looking For...   Let me tell you a story about a...

AIP Salmon Patties (Paleo & Egg Free)

The initial push to make healthier choices is usually an easy transition in the beginning. Making a healthier breakfast, taking the stairs more often... it doesn't usually become a burden until it gets hard to keep up with, and you run out of ideas to make it creative...

AIP Instant Pot Chili & The Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook Launch

The past few months, I couldn't think I could keep a secret... but I did! And man was it a good one, and it's finally here! The Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook which I so proudly got the opportunity to contribute my own recipe to including my speedy AIP Instant Pot...

Paleo Caulirice & Salmon Bowl (AIP)

My husband and I made the switch from predominately plates to mostly bowls a while ago. It was one of the best decisions we've ever made in all of the years that we've been married. I mean, we've been married for like 2 years, but still. I love bowls. There's...

Autoimmune Paleo Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Cauliflower Rice

"Snowed in" always sounded like such an adventure to me. Days at a time of just watching movies, hanging out with loved ones, and cooking delicious, delicious cold weather favorites. Well, I'm not actually snowed in right now like many of you are, but that didn't stop...

Autoimmune Paleo Slow Cooker Beef Stew

After some unseasonably warm weather, it has finally cooled off again here in Texas. I'm a huge proponent of seasonal, local food for over all wellness and healing, and what's a better cold weather dish than a warm, hearty stew? Not only is this stew made from...

Nutrient Dense Avocado and Beef Liver Pâté

When I was a kid, I hated meat. I hated the texture, I hated the taste, and considered the only acceptable way to consume chicken was in nugget or hibachi form. Yikes. Now, if you were to tell me that I'd be feasting on beef liver and having a grand ol' time, I...

AIP Burrito Bowl (gluten free, grain free, paleo)

One of my favorite stories from my childhood was born in San Antonio, TX. A hotspot for authentic Mexican food, and the place I called home at 11 years old after spending the previous 10 years in New York. Raised on pizza with spaghetti sauce coursing through my...

Bison Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Anytime the temperature falls under 90 F degrees at any given time during the day in Dallas, I'm all like, "Leggings, and PSL's, and chunky socks! Let's do this!". 89 F in the middle of September is far from what I grew up with in Long Island, NY but it will have to...
