    Autumn-Themed Paleo Sugar Cookies

    Simple ingredients and natural colors make these Autumn-Themed Paleo Sugar Cookies a fun alternative to traditional Halloween treats and fall desserts. Real Food & Natural Colors A while back, I fell in love with a Paleo Sugar Cookie recipe from Gluten-Free Baking. It’s an amazing recipe, but over the past year I’ve found myself reducing ingredients (sweeteners) and eliminating other ingredients (oil, baking powder) to the point where my own version is quite different from the original. And, now that it’s officially sugar cookie season, it’s time to share how we make cookies in our house. As you’ll see, these Autumn-Themed Paleo Sugar Cookies are made with just six simple…

    Paleo Burgers with Liver and Apple

    These Paleo Burgers with Liver and Apple are kid-approved and surprisingly delicious. Liver? Yes, liver. You really should give it a try and this is the perfect dish to try first. Despite it’s bad rap, liver is a true superfood with more nutrients per gram than any other food! I admit its taste can be a little off-putting, but it can be so delicious when done right. In fact, this is one of my kids’ favorite dishes and pretty much the only way we eat hamburgers around our house. Grass-Fed Beef Liver Not only will liver make a meal more nutritious, but it’s also a great way to stretch your…

    Healthy Paleo Pumpkin Bread with Tigernut and Cassava Flour

    Fall is almost here and it’s time to bring out the pumpkin! This Healthy Paleo Pumpkin Bread with Tigernut and Cassava Flour pairs perfectly with a warm drink on a cool day. As you know, I love veggies and I love to sneak them into my kids’ baked goods. However, this time of year just calls for pumpkin, and that’s okay as pumpkin treats can absolutely be both yummy and nutritious. This grain-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and refined sugar-free pumpkin bread is one of those healthy treats we’ve been indulging on this (almost) fall season. Tigernut and Cassava Flour Power I fell in love with cassava as a Peace Corps volunteer…

    Dairy-Free Pesto with Spinach, Kale, and Bone Broth

      Picky eaters big and small love this dairy-free and nut-free pesto made with spinach, kale, and bone broth.   Thanks to Trader Joe’s Vegan Kale, Cashew, and Basil Pesto, my kids love all things pesto- pesto on pasta, pesto on pizza, pesto on veggies. Without a doubt, this summer they got hooked on pesto. And, in my sneaky way, I successfully baited and switched them over to this homemade pesto packed with spinach, kale, and gut-healing bone broth. Don’t get me wrong, the convenience of pre-made pesto is great and at times needed, but nothing beats homemade when it comes to sustainability, budgeting, and overall awareness of what we’re…

    Lemon Blueberry Cookies with Cassava Flour

    While attempting to modify one of my beet cookie recipes into a nut-free version, I experimented my way into these lemon blueberry cookies with cassava flour. The good news? These are delicious. Bad news? They don’t have beets. Oh well, we’ll just have to eat those beets some other way. In the meantime, this sweet little snack is sure to be a crowd-pleaser that also happens to be gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free. These are also fairly simple to make. To get started, place the applesauce, avocado oil, eggs, Medjool dates (with pits removed), and vanilla in a blender or food processor for about 1 minute on high speed. While…

    Sweet Potato Fishies

    Sweet Potatoes are delicious! And they’re also full of healthy carbs, vitamins, and antioxidants. So, why won’t my kids just eat them!?! I sneak sweet potatoes into so many dishes- into muffins, into gnocchi, into stir-fry. But what I really want is for my kids to just eat sweet potatoes as…sweet potatoes. I once heard that we have to eat a food several times before we actually find it appealing, which makes sense and I’ve even found some research on the web that supports this claim. So, this sweet potato snack has become my attempt to get a few bites of sweet potato into my kids’ mouths (repeatedly) so that…

    Tart Cherry Gummies

    Made with only organic tart cherry juice and beef gelatin, these tart cherry gummies are simple, delicious, and healthy. Tart cherries first caught my attention when I read they were a natural source of melatonin. Melatonin, as you may know, is a hormone that helps control our sleep-wake cycle. Our melatonin levels rise when it’s time to sleep and go down when it’s time to wake. Certain foods, such as tart cherry, have been found to raise our melatonin levels resulting in a better quality of sleep. With two kids under the age of four, this sounds like a very good thing to me. In addition to improving our quality…

    Paleo Spinach and Sweet Potato Muffins

    These Paleo Spinach and Sweet Potato Muffins are gluten-free, dairy-free, and sweetened only with the delicious sweetness of maple syrup, medjool dates, applesauce, and banana. The organic green banana flour also gives these muffins a sweet, earthy taste. Each of these yummy muffins contains over two tablespoons of packed spinach, over one tablespoon of sweet potato, and less than two teaspoons of maple syrup per muffin. Edited: I have since added 6 medjool dates to this recipe, making them just a tad sweeter. I think you’ll find these Paleo Spinach and Sweet Potato Muffins are the perfect snack when you feel like something sweet, filling, and just the right amount…

    Dairy-Free Cashew Cheese

    This dairy-free cashew cheese is grate-able, slice-able, melt-able, and the perfect topping to your dairy-free pizza or nachos. Around the time his little sister was born, my son developed a taste for a few (admittedly tasty) frozen pizzas found in the health-food section of the grocery store. We were doing the best we could, but let’s be honest, we were in true survival mode at the time. However, little by little, we’ve found ways to make our favorite foods at home by using simple, nutrient-dense ingredients. We use several different cheese recipes for mac and cheese, but I really wanted a great pizza cheese and I found it by modifying…

    Green Banana Flour Muffins (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free)

    These gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free muffins are baked with green banana flour and packed with sweet potatoes. I hope you enjoy this unique recipe as much as we do. Sweet Potatoes I love to sneak veggies into my baked goods and these muffins are no exception. In the batch pictured in this post, I used an organic hanna sweet potato. This is the variety with a white flesh that turns a yellowish color when cooked. It’s really sweet and I could eat it by the spoonful! I’ve also made these muffins with jewel sweet potatoes (an orange variety) with equally delicious results. Did you know there are actually sixteen…
