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

Pear and Goat Cheese Salad with Balsamic Reduction

I came across a recipe on CookingLight.com for a grilled peach salad that is to die for! The spicy nuances of the arugula pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the balsamic dressing. I can’t claim this recipe as my own, except that I changed the peaches to pears and added pine nuts. Here’s the link … Continue reading

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

Have I mentioned how much I love Fall? I’m sure I have, because I come from a family who is obsessed with the holidays. Most people are ready to skip on to the Winter holidays (or linger in the Summer sun), but I love this time of the year and wish it would last longer! … 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

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Ice Cream

I have two vices: ice cream and french fries. When I first went on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, I thought I’d never be able to enjoy ice cream again. Then I found Coconut Bliss ice cream at Whole Foods and realized that coconut milk ice cream is even better than the dairy version! This recipe … Continue reading

Thai Style Coconut Curry

I love to go out to Thai food but it gets so pricy and my favorite restaurant won’t deliver outside a 5 mile radius (we’re about 6.5..they won’t do it). My first venture into the land of Thai was my Thai Coconut Soup (Tom Kha Gai), a relatively easy soup that warms the soul and … 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

Gluten-Free Vanilla Almond Granola

The first day of Autumn is quickly approaching and it’s still 95 degrees where we live! If I wasn’t so much of a wuss in the snow, I’d pick up and move to the East Coast so I could do some leaf peeping and enjoy the Fallidays properly. Have you heard of leaf peeping? We … Continue reading

Thai Coconut Soup (Tom Kha Gai)

There’s an amazing little town in Colorado called Telluride, and it is home to culinary greatness. There’s an Asian Fusion restaurant called Honga’s Lotus Petal and they serve the best rendition of my favorite Thai soup, Tom Kha Gai. You can taste the fresh ingredients and it’s not overly sweet or heavy. Fortunately for me, … Continue reading
