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,…

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…
