Paleo Pumpkin Pie (Nut-Free)

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! If you wanna keep it paleo this year, include my paleo pumpkin pie in your dessert line-up! I use Otto’s cassava flour to make the crust. It’s my new favorite baking flour. It subs 1:1 for wheat flour and has a great texture for baked goods. You have to order it online – but it’s free shipping! You know what really irks me? When I see Christmas stuff out before Thanksgiving – and people…

Paleo Misconceptions

I’ve noticed recently (actually I noticed this a while ago, but recently realized I should write about it) that there are some paleo misconceptions in the mainstream, by critics, and by friends. So I figured I’d set the record straight. Listen, paleo is not some crazy diet. It’s not as hard as people think it is. And when I see articles online criticizing paleo for reasons that aren’t even accurate – well, I get annoyed. Paleo is just eating real…

Soft & Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

These pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are soft & chewy. They’re also grain and nut free. I originally created this recipe to make pancakes, but that was a major fail. As I mixed everything together, instead of turning out like pancake batter, I had a thick dough. Sooo, I decided to make cookies and add chocolate chips. They’re very lightly sweetened and make a great fall dessert. Once it hits September, I’m all about pumpkin everything. I’m your stereotypical white girl…

But That’s Not Paleo…

Have you encountered the “paleo police” since going paleo? I definitely have. You know, the people who say, “But that’s not paleo!” if they see you consume something that’s not “paleo perfect” or they say, “You’re allowed to eat that?” Yes, I’m an adult. I’m allowed to eat whatever I want. I guess that second question is just someone wanting to understand paleo, so that’s okay. But guess what? Paleo is not about perfectionism. It’s not meant to make you stress…

16 Superfoods for Digestive Health

Are you suffering from digestive health issues such as gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, burping, heartburn, etc? As a decade-long IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) sufferer myself, I know how miserable it is. These symptoms can range from mildly uncomfortable to downright debilitating. I understand that fear of not wanting to leave the house because you’re afraid to not be near a bathroom. I had years of anxiety and panic attacks that went along with my IBS symptoms. I’ve had to…

Pumpkin Butter Recipe

Fall is in the air! I get so excited when fall rolls around because that means it’s time for PUMPKIN EVERYTHING! I love all the fall treats and apple cider, apple picking, pumpkin picking, fall fashion and just about everything fall has to offer. The only downside is that it’s followed by winter- which I hate. This pumpkin butter recipe was inspired by the pumpkin butter that was served with the bread at a restaurant I ate at when I…

How to Kick PMS to the Curb – Naturally!

Ahhhh, PMS. That time of the month when everything just seems to suck- for yourself and everyone around you. There are so many jokes about women and being “crazy” and bitchy right around that time of the month. PMS is so common, it seems just about every woman suffers from it. It’s become accepted as something that can’t be avoided, something that’s just “a part of life” that we just have to deal with. I, myself, thought that PMS was…

Bone Broth: The Mineral-Rich Superfood

When we’re sick we turn to soup to make us feel better, right? Some may say it’s just a myth that eating soup helps fight off an illness, but is it possible that soup does have healing properties? When it is prepared correctly, soup does, in fact, give our immune system a boost. I’m not talking about Campbell’s, Progresso, or any other store-bought soup, but traditionally prepared soups made with traditionally prepared bone broths- the way grandma makes them. How…
