Grain-Free Lasagna (not strict paleo)

  Lasagna was one of my all-time favorites growing up- and it’s still one of my favorites. Since going paleo, lasagna is something I very, veryyyy rarely eat. I don’t do well at all when I eat wheat, but I always loved pasta. When I discovered Cappello’s it was a game-changer. Now I can enjoy grain-free pasta?? What?! I held off on trying Cappello’s for a long time (despite all the good reviews) because they didn’t sell it at stores…

Paleo Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken

      I haven’t ate fettuccine alfredo in years (since before going paleo in February 2012). Now that I’ve let myself indulge in the wonderfulness that is Cappello’s (cappellosglutenfree.com), I’ve started eating some of my childhood favorites again. Cappello’s products are unbelievable. They’re gluten-free, grain-free and out-of-this-world delicious. I got their multipack that comes with fettuccine, lasagna sheets, & gnocchi. I also got their cookie dough (which is paleo & vegan-friendly). All of their products are truly outstanding. I do have to…

Fettuccine with Cheesy Meat Sauce

  This recipe is based off one of my favorite dinners growing up that my mom would make. She called it “Slop” and it consisted of egg noodles, ground beef, American cheese, onions, peppers, and brown gravy from a jar. I wanted to make a healthier version of one of my childhood favorites that I had been missing. I replaced the egg noodles with Cappello’s fettuccine (you can also use paleocupboard.com’s pasta recipe) and the American cheese with grass-fed gouda…

Truffle Mashed Cauliflower

Truffles make everything better. Do yourself a favor, if you’re ever eating at Seasons 52, order the arugula truffle salad. You can thank me later. Truffle potatoes are another one of my favorites. While I do still eat potatoes, I love to make mashed cauliflower. It’s so delicious and lower in carbs. I make different variations of mashed cauliflower and usually just eyeball it and taste-test while I’m making it. I was asked about how I make my mashed cauliflower,…

Grain-Free Cauli-“Rice” Balls

I haven’t eaten a rice ball in years. Even before paleo I only ate them on occasion because I would normally just get pizza when I went to the pizzeria. Rice is a food I’ve always loved, but have only eaten it very rarely since starting my paleo lifestyle. My cousin gave me the idea to make a paleo version of Italian style rice balls and I thought that was an awesome idea. If you can’t tolerate dairy, you can…

Paleo Salmon Teriyaki

I’ve been on my journey to optimal health for a little bit over 3 years now. Eating paleo made me feel much better at first, but I must admit I eat way too much paleo sweets and treats. I would always tell myself, “it’s okay, it’s paleo.” Now that I am studying nutritional therapy, I am finally coming around to accept that no, that really doesn’t make it okay. Once in a while, as a treat, yes that’s fine, but…

Chicken Thighs with Mushroom Gravy

  I’ve been more busy than usual since I started the Nutritional Therapy Consultant program through NTA, so the crockpot is a lifesaver! It’s only been a week since the program started, but I am loving it so much already! A lot of the introductory material was information that I already knew from my own research, but I learned even more and I’m so excited to share that information with all of you. I’m really excited to see how I…

Skirt Steak in Red Wine Sauce

So this is the first week of the Nutritional Therapy Consultant program that I am taking through the Nutritional Therapy Association! I am eager to learn more about nutrition and real food so I can help people heal themselves with food. It’s going to be hard work going through the program while working full time but it’s totally worth it. Paleo changed my life so much and I can’t wait to start helping other people change their lives with paleo!…

Beef & Vegetable Stew

Beef stew is a traditional winter meal. It’s warm and comforting and simple. I added more vegetables and used sweet potato to make it hearty and healthy. This is perfect to make in the morning and come home without having to make a side dish since it’s already full of vegetables. It’s a convenient, one-pot meal. I like to make this when I need time in the evening to get other stuff done.   Easy- *** Fast- * (****) Spicy-…

I really wanted to make a career out of it and educate people on the importance of eating real food, so I looked into programs that would…
