Paleo-Friendly Muffins {Apple Cinnamon}

Ever since I got back from our Maine vacation, I’ve been trying to get back onto the paleo/primal/real food bandwagon. It’s been one step forward, two steps back. I feel like I’m always on the go between PT appointments, my son’s band practices, and all the errands associated with back-to-school season, and I haven’t carved out the time...

Paleo-Friendly Sausage Skillet (Pasta Optional)

Last night I experimented with a new recipe that I can’t wait to share with you. We received a package of hot Italian sausage from our CSA, and it’s been sitting in my fridge waiting for me to come up with something to cook with it. I’m trying to eat low carb, so I went...

7 Healthy & Easy Spiralizer Recipes

A healthy, active lifestyle must begin in the kitchen. Without the right fuel for your body, you’ll never be able to live the active lifestyle you want to have. I’ve spent the last few years trying to move away from processed foods and the carb-focused diet that is so common in our culture. I’m here to tell...

Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

I’m trying to lighten up our dinners after a few weeks of heavy eating… not to mention Halloween thrown in there for good measure! I found these photos I took back in the summer of a delicious dish I made with zucchini noodles topped with sautéed shrimp. I’m definitely adding this to my meal plan...

Scrambled Eggs with Grated Zucchini #Paleo

Need a quick, healthy breakfast for a busy morning? I whipped up these Scrambled Eggs with Grated Zucchini yesterday morning, and they were fantastic. I had leftover zucchini in the fridge from dinner the night before. It was already shredded. BONUS!!

Paleo Recipes: Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I’ve said time and time again that I’m trying to adopt a more paleo-friendly way of eating, and it never seems to stick. Our eating habits really get ingrained in us, don’t they!!!? Moving to more of a real food diet wasn’t a big stretch for me. Even though I’d gotten into some bad eating...

Red Wine Marinated Flank Steak

This Red Wine Marinated Flank Steak is a long-time favorite meal in our house. Flank steak is a great cut for marinating because it can be a bit tough, but if you marinate it for 8 hours or overnight, it soaks in the flavors and grills up beautifully.  The key is not to overcook it. I...

Paleo Stuffed Peppers Recipe

In my quest to find meals that are dairy and gluten free, I decided to try these stuffed peppers from Practical Paleo. I was surprised by how much my family enjoyed them. I really didn’t expect them to love them so much. The kids did say that they would have liked them better with red peppers...

Paleo Beef Stew

We love beef stew, but I’ve always loaded mine up with potatoes which leave me feeling overly full. I’m trying to eat fewer starches nowadays and moving towards more of a paleo-style diet (I hate trendy labels, but that is the easiest way I know of to describe the way I want to eat) so I thought...

Citrus & Herb Whole Roasted Chicken

At the recommendation of a reader (thanks, Dawn!) I picked up the book, Practical Paleo, and read it cover to cover in about three days. It wasn’t a lot of new information (to me) but it was a great recap of everything I’ve read and learned over the past few years since discovering the wisdom and common sense...

Banana Blueberry Egg Mini-Muffins

I love hosting my {Gluten-Free} Recipe Roundup every week. I’ve found SO many good recipes from there. I hope you don’t tune it out if you’re not gluten free. Most of my recipes are naturally gluten free or can be made with regular glutenous ingredients, if that’s what floats your boat! These Banana Blueberry Egg Muffins from Live...
