Turmeric Hot Chocolate

My socks are on! Which means it’s officially cold weather in the southern California region. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still wearing my flips flops on the regular. Just not so much at night or early mornings. I had been dying to make a turmeric version of Hot Chocolate ever since a friend mentioned she…

Thick Paleo Blueberry Pancakes

Pancake Saturday is now officially a thing in my house. I think I’ve kept a streak going for about 6 weeks now. Each Saturday has been different as I’ve toyed around with buckwheat, vegan, plantains, bananas, even chia seed versions! These are the classic blueberry variety. No shame in keeping it simple. The simple recipes are the…

Mocha Spice Brownies

I”m thinking everyone is probably a bit “over-sugared” right now from the candy-centric holiday this week. There has to be someone out there with a sweet tooth that no amount of holiday goodies can tame. Or maybe you’re the person who needs an alternative sweet to help avoid the mountains of leftover Halloween candy. If…

Salted Caramel Almond Milk

I’m really sad you guys. My landlady just cut back this GIANT beautiful Bougainvillea plant in our front yard. I know it’ll grow back, but I seriously feel like my house is naked and exposed right now. It offered so much shade and color and texture to our little abode and I’m grieving the loss. It…

Strawberry Chia Pudding

“Chia Pudding… so hot right now” – Mugatu Here’s another quick, cost-effective solution to your breakfast or snacking needs! I was able to pick up all the necessary ingredients from Trader Joe’s, but you could easily snag the same ingredients at Whole Foods (not AS cost effective!). This recipe is easy to modify to fit your…

Chocolate Chia Pudding

Sometimes I get requests for recipes that I wouldn’t typically make for myself. Chia pudding is one of those things. I realize that chia is widely considered a “superfood” and hailed as an excellent source of healthy fats and energy. BUT… If you know anything about my nutritional journey, you know that I have some digestive issues….

The Clean Slate Day 11

Another gorgeous day in Southern California. Day 11 was not a completely “clean” slate day. I had a bit of chocolate (which has sugar… a no-no), but I made a choice to indulge a bit and that’s fine by me. I made some of paleOMG’s delicious coconut cups out of her cookbook (and on her…

Fresh Almond Milk

Like bone broth, nut milk is the kind of food adventure that many people shy away from making at home because it “seems like a lot of work”. I’m here to bust that myth whilst adding an incentive. This almond milk is so amazingly delicious that you will NEVER want to drink that carton stuff…

Mint Chip Smoothie

I’ve really been into these smoothies lately. Usually I shy away from them because I generally don’t like to drink my food. I love food. I love eating. So drinking usually leaves me feeling a bit unsatisfied. But I can to this realization that drinking a smoothie usually means that I get to have breakfast twice……

Coconut Coffee Creamer

Coffee is somewhat of a controversial topic in the world of Paleo. Some people see no problem in slurping down 32 oz. a day plus a couple of shots of espresso. Others think that coffee consumption is sure to lead to adrenal issues and myriad of other problems. I think I fall somewhere in the…
