Sesame Ginger Meatballs + Carrot Noodles {Whole30}

Posted on

        Sometimes I often forget how much I miss certain flavors and styles of eating until I have them. That’s where the idea for these sesame ginger meatballs came from.  It’s similar to the concept of “out of sight, out of mind” for me when it comes to certain foods. It’s like the instantly I pick up chopsticks to eat sushi I am reminded how much I love using chopsticks to eat, but outside of that situation I rarely think about using… Read More

Aegean Salad with Blackened Shrimp {Whole30 + AIP}

Posted on

  Ever since I can remember I have been resourceful in ways I’ve been able to generate income for myself, and I truly believe that I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit. When I was 7 I was begging to cut the grass to earn some extra cash. I remember even asking my sister if she’d pay me to clean her room. I did whatever I could to save money and use it wisely on things that mattered to me (it’s all relative, I mean… Read More

Savory “Grits” & Soft Boiled Egg – The Perfect Paleo Spring Brunch

Posted on

    In the springtime I crave fresh, simple and beautiful food. It’s all about colors, textures and the experience of eating the food, just as much as it is about the food’s flavor. This perfect Paleo spring brunch is ideal for the coming months of fresh simple produce and warmer sunny days. I love these savory “grits” because they are so light comparatively to their corn inspiration.  I grew up eating grits coming from a southern family and to me they are the epitome… Read More

Zucchini Noodle Shrimp Pasta

    I can’t wrap my mind around where summer went. It feels like it was just the beginning of July and here we are now at the end of August. Who let that happen? One thing I know for sure, I am soaking in on all of the summer produce possible. Fresh items like peaches, nectarines, berries (all the berries!), summer squash and greens are in such abundance right now. So I am using them up in every way I can possibly fit them… Read More

Stone Fruit Salsa Salmon {AIP & Paleo)

Posted on

    If you follow me on social media, you’ll know that I got the most random episode of a sinus cold this past week. It took me by complete surprise. It is the middle of summer, after all. I was fine on Tuesday, but I woke up Wednesday morning and could barely breathe through my nose, lost my sense of smell and generally felt pretty miserable. Lucky me, I had a busy day that day with back to back meetings so I pushed through.… Read More

Green Gazpacho Soup

Posted on

When spring and summer come all I can think about are getting my hands on all the fresh produce and vegetables possible. It’s a time when I leisurely walk the farmer’s markets. I am constantly inspired by fresh local produce, and right now there is so much to be excited about. Between fresh berries, figs, collard, dandelion greens, zucchini, and asparagus there is so much right now to make healthy eating super convenient. Seeing all of the green vegetables as I tote them home in… Read More

Legume-free Hummus (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

Posted on

Prior to the days where I no longer eat grains and legumes I loved hummus! Seriously I’d dip whatever I could into it, pretzels, carrots, cucumbers, spread it on tortillas the list goes on. When I think about how I used to eat, it was never a poor diet, the main difference between what I felt was healthy then, and what I know is healthy now is a matter of nutrients. And even though my diet lifestyle was seemingly “healthy” is was nutritionally void. I… Read More
