Keto Cinnamon Fudge Avocado Brownies (Paleo)

The thought of sharing this brownie recipe with you brings an evil grin to my face because they are so delicious, it’s almost cruel. I’ve been plotting to make reaaaaallllly fudgey brownies for a long time now. I cannot even begin to explain to you how determined I was to make the perfect brownie. That’s my favorite type of brownie – the fudgier (is that a word?), the better. Honestly, if I’m making brownies for myself, I prefer them undercooked so that I get that “heavy” texture. Top it with some ice cream, and I’m in pure heaven. Creating a…

Paleo & Vegan Walnut “Cheese” Sauce

What’s the most common thing people say they can’t give up when going dairy-free? Cheese. It’s always cheese. Giving up cheese wasn’t that hard for me, but I quickly discovered that I actually love paleo and vegan cheese replacements. Much much better than regular dairy. Is that weird? As I started trying more and more vegan restaurants and paleo dishes, I quickly realized that cheese-flavored things, without real cheese, were my weakness. Nowadays, more and more people are going dairy-free. 80% of the adult population is lactose intolerant. Most people stop creating lactase, which is the enzyme necessary to break down lactose,…

Creamy Chicken Piccata (Paleo)

When it comes to recipe inspiration, I’ve been feeling really nostalgic lately. I keep thinking about the meals that were my absolute favorites growing up – meals that remind me of simpler times when there was a lot of food, family, friends, laughter, and togetherness. Meals that have a lot of memories attached to them. Chicken piccata is one of those meals that will always remind me of my hometown and family. It wasn’t a dish that I got to eat very often, but everyone knew it was my favorite. It was my “special occasion” meal, and I always felt…

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.

Paleo Chicken and Veggie Enchiladas (Easy Enchilada Sauce & Vegan Sour Cream)

Hands down, this dish is one of the best things I’ve ever eaten in my life. It’s also one of the most visually appealing things I’ve ever pulled together, so I’m very proud of that. WHO’S READY FOR A FIESTA?! I cannot tell you the last time I had an enchilada. Actually, I can. It was a crappy chicken enchilada from the Mexican to-go restaurant by the dorms at UCLA. They only served enchiladas one day each week, and I always looked forward to enchilada day. I ate the same meals over and over again every other day of the…
