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,…

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…

Cinnamon Roasted Vegetables & How to Make a Sweet Keto Yogurt Bowl

One of my specialties is discovering new ways to incorporate more vegetables into my diet. Vegetables are so versatile, and I truly love them. However, so many people tell me they don’t like them and don’t want to eat them. To that I say… You just haven’t found the best way to cook them! There are countless ways to season vegetables and transform the way they taste – you just have to experiment until you figure out what you like the best. Once you do, you won’t even realize you’re eating veggies. One of my favorite tricks? Cinnamon roasted veggies! You’ve probably seen your fair share of…

Paleo / Vegan Nut Milk Pulp “Hummus”

Hummus and I broke up awhile ago, but we have a lot of history that I’ll never forget. We had a lot of good times together, and we didn’t end on bad terms. When I see hummus now, it makes me nostalgic. I haven’t had real hummus in two years since going paleo, but it was a staple in my diet for most of my life. I was a hummus addict. I went through at least five containers of Sabra hummus a week  – it was my go-to afternoon snack before volleyball practice. That, or chips and salsa. I was a different creature back…

Golden Milk Pudding / Jell-O (Gluten-free / Paleo / AIP-Friendly)

Good ole’ golden milk. It’s all over the Internet. I don’t mean to sound super cool or anything, buuuut I’ve been drinking golden milk for quite a few years now. Pre-popularity. It’s such a basic recipe that I never thought to even put it on the blog, but I recently came up with a new twist on the old classic. Golden. Milk. Pudding. As much as I love golden milk, I much prefer to eat something rather than drink something. I like substance. There’s also something really soothing about a pudding or a Jell-O. It brings me back to my childhood when…
