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…

Peppermint Vanilla Coconut Smoothie Bowl (Paleo)

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY, YOU LUCKY HUMAN! Are you wearing your green? I woke up this morning feeling like a CHAMP because I took the last test of my undergraduate career yesterday, so I wanted to make myself somethin’ festive to celebrate my good mood. Since I won’t be having corned beef and cabbage this year, I opted for something better – a peppermint smoothie bowl! Long gone are my high school days of living at McDonald’s to slurp down a Shamrock Shake every day after class in March. Even though I loved McDonald’s growing up (I really made a 180*…), if…

Chia “Rice” Pudding / Fake Oatmeal (Chai or Pumpkin Spice Flavor) (Paleo / Vegan)

Now that I’m on “the protocol,” I’m trying to switch up my breakfasts as much as I can to keep things interesting. I’ve learned the hard way that my body doesn’t like having the same foods every single day, so it’s important to rotate my meals. I’m also trying to figure out ways to make myself forget that I can’t have heaps of vegetables with every meal now. It’s a real struggle. The way this recipe was born is kind of weird. Also kind of funny. It all started with the name. My roommates and I were sitting around enjoying…
