Sugar-Free Vanilla Coconut Collagen Cookies (Paleo)

This week just happens to be Mind Body Green’s No Sugar Week, so I figured these incredibly delicious no-sugar cookies were very appropriate. MBG’s No Sugar Week has caused quite a stir on the Internet, but I won’t get into that here. I say, DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU. For anyone who is doing a sugar detox, who is on any sort of formal sugar-free protocol relating to their health like I currently am, or who just wants some sugar-free cookies – this one’s for you.  If you’re following a ketogenic or low-carb diet, these cookies are the perfect treat.…

Caffeine-Free Coffee Almond Banana Bread Muffins (Sugar-Free / Paleo / Low-FODMAP / SCD)

Since the moment these beauties first came out of the oven, I’ve been dying to share this recipe with you! These muffins got an overwhelmingly positive response from all of my taste-testers, so I have full confidence you will fall in love with them as well. Especially because they’re sugar-free! Since going on my anti-Candida/anti-food-intolerances diet, I’ve been really into  experimenting with sugar-free baking. I think that most people consume too much sugar. So many people feel dependent on sugar, whether or not they have Candida, and I really want to show people that you don’t need to add sugar or sweeteners to everything. There’s…

Creamy Coconut Collagen Pudding (Paleo / AIP Friendly)

This “recipe” is a total cheat because it’s truly just a variation of the Golden Milk Pudding I posted a long time ago, but it’s really too delicious not to post by itself. You know, just in case you’re not into golden-milk-flavored things. Recipes like this are a testament to the fact that sometimes the easiest dishes to make are by far the most delicious. Easy process, minimal ingredients, and oh-so-good for your bod. Like me, my friend Alison is also on a gut-healing diet right now, and she’s been getting a little sick of eating similar meals over and over again. Unfortunately,…

Paleo Carrot Cake Pancakes with Cashew “Cream Cheese” Frosting

I’ve been keeping this recipe safe in my back pocket for awhile now, slyly waiting for the perfect time to post it. Easter is coming up, my birthday is this week, and spring is in the air. It’s the perfect time.   Easter. Rabbits. Carrots. Carrot cake. I’ll never get over how strange it is that we associate certain foods with certain times of the year. That being said, I’m not complaining. There aren’t many healthy foods that I associate with Easter, when I think about it. It’s mostly just Peeps and chocolate eggs. And decorated, colored eggs, but I don’t eat those. This recipe, however, is…

Cinnamon Spiced Roasted Nuts (Paleo/Vegan)

Happy Monday, lovely! My last post about graduating was a long one, so I thought I’d pop in with a quick and easy recipe (if you can even call it that) to even things out. It’s my first week as a college graduate, and I’m seriously on Cloud 9. Part of me has no idea what to do with myself. I’m taking this week “off” for spring break, and then heading to work full-time starting next week! Although, let’s be honest… do I ever really take a week “off”?! (Laughable.) Since it’s Monday, you know what that means… a new episode of Actually…
