Strawberry Quinoa Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette

NOT PALEO ALERT! This salad is probably closer to being PEGAN than Paleo. If you haven’t heard, Pegan is the new darling of the diet world. It’s a combination of our two favorite “extreme” diets out there; Paleo and Vegan. Um, what? I’ve always said that paleo and veganism are more alike than dissimilar. I guess…

Grain-Free Shredded Beef Taquitos

I know you made my Mocha Spice Shredded Beef over the weekend, and now you’re “stuck” with yummy leftovers wondering, “How can I make this meal even MORE delicious”. No worries friend, I got you. These tortillas, found at A Girl Worth Saving, are one of my new favorite things. Combined with some tasty shredded beef, they…

Kid-Friendly Breakfasts

I remember school mornings being rushed and chaotic… I also remember cereal. Lots and lots of cereal. Honestly, I don’t blame my mom. Cereal is fast, easy, and kids love it. There’s barely any dishes to clean, especially if you’ve taught your little ones to rinse and load a dishwasher. Unfortunately, in these health-conscious times, we…

Spinach and Egg Tacos

ERMERGERD! I did something crazy today! Yes, that’s a nose piercing. I’ve been wanting to get one for SUCH a long time, but I’ve never been good at making those kinds of decisions. So upon waking, I decided to go today and get it done. I’m feeling super awesome about it, but who knows what kind of…

Spinach Potato Curry

I’ve been super into potatoes lately. No, not SWEET potatoes. Just regular ol’ white potatoes. They are delicious and starchy and wonderful. And I guess technically they are not paleo, but for those who feel like getting all “paleo police” on me…   Oh Spongebob, you saucy minx. Hey! It’s cooler now over here in Orange…

Chocolate “PB” Balls

If you do not understand the quotation marks in the title, they mean that these lil’ guys do not have peanut butter. That means they are paleo and a good snack for all our peanut-allergic friends. They are also highly addictive, so I suggest that you make them when there are people around so you…

Sunbutter Cups

Lucky me! I was strolling along the main drag here in San Clemente, and I stumbled upon a little mom-pop cooking store that had some nifty items on sale. To my delight, I saw a little box of silicone baking cups. I kid you not, I’ve been desiring a set of these for over a…

Spiced Potato Medley

Sweet and Savory. Some of the most beloved words in the foodie world. What is it about the combination of sweet and salty? It’s just sooooo delicious. This little paleo-friendly potato medley is just that. Super delicious. If you are looking for a good reason to make this, I’ll give you three: Pair these potatoes…

Flourless Chocolate Cookies

I have a disclaimer for this post. I really hesitate to use the term “paleo” next to it. These cookies are ridiculous. Ridiculous in a crazy sugar explosion kind of way. They’re mostly sugar (albeit coconut sugar) and chocolate. So they’re delicious, but not exactly premium cave-fare. If you are eating these, just be glad that…
