Almond Chive “Cheese” (Vegan / Paleo)

I’m incredibly grateful for the fact that nuts somehow can magically be made into dairy-free “cheese.” I honestly love nut “cheese” more than I ever loved regular cheese. For some reason, I feel like it has a more potent flavor… almost like it has more character to it. Plus, it doesn’t completely destroy my digestion the way that regular dairy does! In L.A., I’m lucky enough to have access to a lot of “fancy” nut cheeses at the grocery store. Kite Hill, Treeline, and Leaf Cuisine are a few popular brands that you might be familiar with. As yummy as…

“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…

Oven Roasted Cucumbers (Paleo / Vegan / Whole 30)

After posting about my recent obsession with roasted celery fries, I was pleasantly surprised at how many of you hopped on the bandwagon and fell in love with them, too! There is nothing I love more than seeing you recreate my recipes. I think it’s time to introduce you to my other ridiculously simple addiction as of late…roasted cucumber! Again, I credit months of being on a repetitive, monotonous elimination diet for this discovery. Cucumbers tend to be a “safe” food for most people. They’re included in almost every type of healing diet out there. Problem is, though, cucumbers, like celery,…

Oven Roasted Celery Fries (Paleo, Vegan, Whole 30)

CELERY FRIES! These are my most recent obsession, for a number of reasons. I’ve been talking about roasted celery on Instagram for awhile now, and everyone always asks me to post the exact “recipe.” I feel like this isn’t really a “recipe,” but I’m happy to share precisely how I do it. Get ready to fall in love with celery. (I bet you’d never expect to…) I remember the exact moment when I decided to roast my celery. It was a Friday night, and there were a bunch of leftovers in the fridge, ready to be eaten. I was very…

Cashew Pesto Sauce & Pesto Tomato Chicken Bake (Paleo)

I recently realized that I have thousands of photos hiding on my external hard drive that need to be organized ASAP. I always see them as I search for other specific photos, but I honestly never have the motivation to actually sit down and sort through everything. There always seems to be something more important to do. The problem is that there are a lot of gems in there! So I’m going to start getting around to it… I think. Anyways, going through old photos made me realize how many recipes I made and took photos of a long time ago,…
