Avocado Lime Egg Salad

I’m really excited because I’m about to go get some testing done at a local integrative facility called Movement RX. Back in January, I attended their Grand Opening party and actually WON THE RAFFLE! The prize? Some metabolic testing 😉 I’m not one to usually measure stuff like that. Since I have some weird food/body…

Cinnamon Citrus Pork

Confessions of a paleo cook: I haven’t jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon. (gasp) I’m not opposed to the contraption, just seriously lack the “latest kitchen gadget” gene. I don’t like having more stuff, even if it’s cooking related. I require a sharp knife, high-speed blender, and cast iron pan. The instant pot, while insanely helpful…

Classic Pumpkin Pie

I grew up having pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. Under no circumstances did I expect it to be at any other holiday gathering. As I’ve grown into a more well-rounded person with a growing catalogue of life experiences, it’s become apparent that the rest of the country doesn’t necessarily have that same expectation. I was even listening closely to…

Fig Brownie Bites

This probably goes without saying, but it’s incredibly difficult to do anything with a newborn in the house. I was also incredibly naive to think that I could get anything done while he is sleeping. Why? Because I can only do things that don’t make NOISE. Cooking… makes noise. Baking… makes noise. Sweeping up the back yard……

Healing Banana Pancakes

If you haven’t jumped on the banana pancake train, you’re late. Seriously, just mash some banana with some egg and nut butter and you have FANTASTIC healthy pancakes! It’s so easy! This week, I decided to step up my banana pancake strategy by adding in some gut and joint healing COLLAGEN. Collagen is having its…

Clean Almond Joy Bars

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for a hump day/afternoon sugar boost! Seriously, munch on one of these and try not to jet out the door and run around the block 5 times. It’s amazing how sensitive our bodies can become to sugar when we limit our consumption of the sweet stuff. Even during my pregnancy,…

Maple Orange Almond Cake

  Your weekly dose of yummy, healthy treats is here! When I tasted this cake, the first words out of my mouth were “Oh My God.” It’s delicious and decadent and also incredible user-friendly. I have this thing for simple baking recipes. I don’t like having to be super exact or go out and buy a…

Simple Greek Olive Salad

I posted this idea up on my Instagram the other day so HOPEFULLY you already saw it cause you’re a Clean Plate follower! But if not, then here’s the bloggy version of that post. You better sit down. Cause this is gonna take a while… …Just kidding! This is the easiest of the easy. A SUPER…

Ham and Egg Omlette

SIMPLICTY. I’ve been eating/living within a paleo-like lifestyle for the past 5 1/2 years. As I peruse around the blogs, bookstores, and social media it seems as though the “paleo world” is becoming pretty complicated. With that in mind, I’d like to take a moment to remind everyone that you don’t have to learn how to make…

Basil, Peach, and Bacon Salad

As we near the end of summer, I want to encourage you all to enjoy the fruits of the season in as many ways as possible! Contrary to common knowledge, fruit isn’t just a snack or something you put in a smoothie. If you want to get really creative in the kitchen, use fruit in your…
