Paleo Honey Biscuits (GF, SCD, Paleo)

These remind me a little of corn bread, especially if you drizzle some honey on top. I originally made them to go with a roasted chicken and root vegetables, but ended up eating all of the leftovers for breakfast all week! I spread them with a little butter and homemade blueberry preserves. Ingredients (makes 4 … Continue reading

How to milk an almond : Almond Milk Tutorial

Everyone knows you can milk a cow, a goat, a sheep, and even a coconut. Luckily for all of us dairy free folks, you can also milk nuts.

Grain-free Apple Spice Coffee Cake (SCD and Paleo)

Gluten-free Baked Chicken Strips with Honey Mustard Sauce (Paleo & SCD)

If there’s one thing that frustrates me the most, it’s having to make 2 different meals at dinner time. I try to feed my son what we are having for dinner that night, but sometimes the flavors are too mature for his pallet, so I like to keep some more kid friendly options in the … Continue reading

SCD Grain-free Lasagna 2.0

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
