Roasted Duck Fat Potatoes

I used to always roast my potatoes with olive oil. I came across duck fat while food shopping one day & decided to try using it on my potatoes instead of olive oil. They came out fantastic and I never used olive oil again! Everyone I have made these for has become obsessed as well. This recipe is so easy and perfect for serving to non-paleo guests! Some argue that only sweet potatoes are allowed on paleo, but that is…

Shaved Brussels Sprouts

This is a great side dish to serve for Thanksgiving dinner! This dish goes very well with turkey & potatoes. The bacon fat gives it the perfect flavor. This is a comforting dish that is super delicious & healthy! Look for packs of shaved brussels sprouts; if you cannot find this you can chop up brussels sprouts in the food processor. This dish can be made in less than 20 minutes and is strict paleo as well. I am serving…

Pumpkin Spice Coffee

  Before I became paleo I was obsessed with Pumpkin Lattes from Dunkin Donuts & Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks. I always looked forward to fall and enjoying the specialty coffees. Now that I know those lattes are full of junk, I make my own. I personally don’t put the maple syrup in because I enjoy it fine without the sweetener. This coffee is my favorite part of the morning!   Easy- ***** Fast- ***** Spicy- no   Ingredients: 2…

Hazelnut Pumpkin Spice Muffins

  I am a HUGE fan of pumpkin season. People make fun of me for it but I don’t care. I’m all about pumpkin everything. I wanted to make a pumpkin muffin recipe that’s a bit different than the usual, so I made these with hazelnut flour. I also used Youfreshnaturals Caramel Pumpkin Spice Coco-Nut Butter and let me say these came out even better than I was expecting. Absolutely delicious. I like to eat two of these for breakfast…

Review: Mini Sweet Potato Flatbreads

This recipe is super simple to make. I used organic canned sweet potato puree to make it even easier and quicker. I mixed everything in the food processor so that it would be mixed really well and to make it easier. My sweet potato puree was a bit watery so I had to add in a few extra teaspoons of coconut flour. From start to finish it took me about 50 minutes for these. These were very good. I made…

Review: Shrimp Scampi with Creamy Garlic Fettuccine

This recipe took me about an hour from start to finish. It was definitely an easy and stress-free meal. I bought zucchini that was already made into noodles in a store by me, so that made it even simpler. This meal is strict paleo and was definitely enjoyable for me and my family. I personally don’t think this would go over great with non-paleo guests, as they would probably prefer it be served with wheat noodles, but I didn’t try…

Review: Salmon with Creamy Tzatziki Sauce & Dill Carrots

  This recipe took me about an hour and a half from start to finish, including chopping veggies. If you chop your veggies ahead of time, it will cut down on the time. This recipe is easy to follow and make. It’s a simple but delicious dinner. The tzatziki sauce tastes shockingly like the real thing. This meal is definitely strict paleo and sugar-free. I think it would go over well with non-paleo guests, especially if you added some type…

Review: Four-Layer Beef & Bacon Casserole

This recipe is very easy to follow, however it did take me about two and a half hours from start to finish. This is not something to make during the busy work week, but would be ideal for comfort food on the weekend. It was very delicious; you can never go wrong with bacon. Beef and bacon are two of my favorites, so I really enjoyed this meal. This meal would qualify as strict paleo and guilt-free.  I think non-paleo…

Flavorful Scrambled Eggs

  Before I became paleo I never ate eggs; I hated them. I started incorporating them into my diet as part of my paleo lifestyle. At first, I always had to “mask” the egg taste with ketchup and bacon. I gave up ketchup for a while, but I didn’t want to give up eggs, so I had to figure out a way to make them more palatable for me. This scrambled egg recipe is delicious! Egg haters like me now…

Baked Halibut

    This is one of the easiest recipes ever. When I get home from work I’m pretty much always feeling lazy and just wanting to get dinner over with so I can relax before bed. Due to my desire to relax, I aim to create very simple recipes. Sometimes I do choose to make some more complicated dishes because of cravings, and let’s face it: most of the time the more complicated dishes are the most satisfying. However, sometimes…
