Crock Pot Mexican Chicken Soup with Cheddar Cheese Chips

Did you know that January is National Soup Month? My mom just told me! See the end of this post for all of my other soups. Here’s a soup that can be thrown together in a cinch and is full of bold Mexican flavors. The best part about it is that it simmers in a … Continue reading

Arugula Salad with Pomegranate Seeds and Blueberries

I love pomegranate seeds in a salad. They add a nice crunch and a lovely red color, and go really well with a balsamic vinaigrette. I actually would have preferred to put Bosc pears in this salad, but I couldn’t find any ripe ones so I used some of my son’s blueberries! Ingredients (serves 6) … Continue reading

SCD and Paleo Cranberry Sauce

I don’t know about you, but I grew up on the canned variety of this holiday favorite. I actually never liked it and skipped over the jelly like substance at every Thanksgiving. Now that I’ve made it homemade and know what I am eating is not full of refined sugar, I’ve grown to love it … Continue reading

Vegan Pumpkin Banana Smoothie

My sister sent a Halloween care package for my son and instead of candy included a few of his favorite Plum Organic baby food packets. She sent the pumpkin banana flavor which were delicious! It gave me an idea to make an adult version for my husband and I, and the little man actually liked … Continue reading

Peanut Butter Banana Shake

I love an easy shake that I can use as a meal replacement in the morning if I’m short on time, or as a snack in the afternoon when I can’t make it to dinnertime. I especially love it when it involves my two favorite super foods: flax and raw cacao. I’ve been using flaxseed … Continue reading

Crock Pot Apple Sauce (refined sugar free)

It’s apple season and our farmer’s market is overflowing with the fruit in all different shapes, sizes and colors. It’s funny, but I look forward to apple season so that I can chat with “the apple man.” I’m ashamed to say that I don’t know his name, but he is the sweetest old man who … Continue reading

Chili Lime Nuts

As I mentioned in my Trail Mix post, I’ve started soaking and dehydrating my nuts prior to eating them. You don’t have to soak them if you don’t want to, but buy raw nuts either way. These nuts are a great snack and are Paleo and SCD friendly. Ingredients1/2 pound raw cashews 1/2 pound raw … Continue reading

Easy Trail Mix

I’ve been reading a lot about the benefits of soaking and dehydrating nuts prior to eating them, so I thought I would try it for the first time for my trail mix. I purchased all of my raw nuts and seeds at Whole Foods in the bulk section. It is much cheaper than buying a … Continue reading

Crock Pot Italian Fagioli Soup

This soup was inspired by a copy cat recipe of Olive Garden’s Pasta e Fagioli soup that a friend passed along to me.  Her soup was delicious, but not SCD legal and also had a lot of ingredients that I can’t eat right now (see my Facebook Post). I substituted ground turkey and chicken broth … Continue reading

Berrylicious Baked Oatmeal (Vegan and Gluten Free)

My husband was away on business, so the rest of us didn’t have an agenda yesterday morning and rolled out of bed at 9am (dog included!). The extra sleep felt so glorious! Luckily I made this baked oatmeal the night before so I could continue the lazy morning and not have to worry about preparing … Continue reading
