Paleo / Vegan Cauliflower Mac ‘N Cheese Bake

This is one of those recipes that isn’t very aesthetically pleasing, but then you take a bite and basically melt in a puddle of happiness. PALEO AND VEGAN MAC ‘N CHEESE. It’s almost too delicious to be real. I have to be honest – this only lasted one full day in my fridge, and even that required a lot of self-control. This is basically my ideal comfort meal, and the second I took a bite I knew I had to share the recipe immediately. I’ve been dying to make a paleo version of mac ‘n cheese for a looooong time. The…

Paleo Sloppy Joes (Garlic / Onion-Free)

I have to be honest… I’ve been craving a good Sloppy Joe since 2015. And it’s finally here. Growing up, Sloppy Joes were a family staple. You know those meals that feel like stereotypical meals for your family in particular? Sloppy Joes were a stereotypical, classic Rice family meal. Every night was family night in my house, but Sloppy Joe night was even moreso. It meant a special occasion. Usually dinner with a movie, and maybe some dessert after. Probably a weird board game, too. OR it meant the complete opposite. On the rare occasion Mom was gone and couldn’t…

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…
