Golden Milk Salmon (Paleo / Whole 30)

As much as Instagram has its downsides, it will always be the best place to find recipe inspiration. I can always depend on Instagram to get my stomach growling and to inspire me to try something new in the kitchen. A few months ago, I saw Mary Shenouda of The Paleo Chef post a picture of coconut butter salmon, and I was immediately foaming at the mouth in lust. I quickly made her recipe and tried it for myself. Pure heaven.  How had I never thought to put coconut butter on top of salmon before?! Coconut butter and salmon are two…

Pumpkin Seed Pesto Cabbage Pasta (Paleo w/ Vegan Option, Whole 30)

Happy October! I always love to kick October off with a pumpkin recipe (of course), but this year I wanted to sneak in a pumpkin-inspired recipe that wasn’t just your typical pumpkin baked good. Pumpkin is great for baking, but I don’t think pumpkin gets enough love outside of the baking world, you know? Let’s talk about pumpkin seeds! First of all, pumpkin seeds are an amazing source of protein. If you’re vegan or vegetarian and looking for good sources of protein, pumpkin seeds are always one of my top recommendations. For people who struggle with nuts and seeds because…

Sugar-Free Lemon Bar Smoothie (Paleo / Vegan / Keto)

Who doesn’t love a good lemon bar?! Well, truth is… Not always me. Let me be clear. I love all things lemon. Lemon is one of my favorite flavors, and always has been. Because of that, I always like the idea of a lemon bar. That citrusy bite is extra refreshing and reminds me of summertime. What I don’t like about traditional lemon bars, though, is the bread-y bottom. I’ve talked about this before when it comes to pies. I’m not really a pie person, because I don’t like the crust. I have the same problem with lemon bars. The bottom crust is always just…

“Clean Out the Fridge” Veggie Green Sauce (Paleo / Vegan)

I know not everyone feels this way, but I love my greens more than anything. My motto is, “The greener the better!” I didn’t always love vegetables this much, though. It took me awhile to figure out how to fall in love with them, but now I like my bowls to be as “green” as possible. My mission is to help other people learn to love their veggies, too, and to teach them to sneak as many as they can into their meals. I’m about to share one of the best tricks I have for doing just that. Another thing I’m…

Chocolate Chip Coconut Zucchini Muffins (Paleo / Vegan / Sugar-Free)

When I first transitioned over to eating a healthier diet a few years ago, I became obsessed with baking healthy treats. I have always had a sweet tooth, and I probably always will. When I changed my diet, I was in college, and I was surrounded by people who ate cookies and muffins and cupcakes and ice cream all the time without thinking about it. At first, I was sad that I wouldn’t be able to do that anymore because of my food intolerances. Then, I turned to the Internet, and I discovered a whole new world. I spent hours…
