super easy squash and kale soup

By | February 7th, 2016|Autoimmune Paleo, Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

I frequently discuss the importance of real/whole food as the source for all of the nutrients we need to heal, perform, and thrive. But one of the issues many people seem to face when it comes to getting all the needed nutrients is that it can be daunting to eat a giant bowl of greens or [...]

coconut tahini stir fry

By | October 14th, 2015|Health, Marinades and Sauces, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

I've been getting some requests for quick and simple healthy weeknight meals. This is one of my favorites. It's super quick and easy to make, and it will leave everyone filled up with nutritious ingredients and none of the crap. This is especially good when you've got an asian food craving but don't want the [...]

strawberry rhubarb tart

By | July 8th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Recipes|

After the great response I got from posting a photo of this tart on Instagram last night, I knew I shouldn't hesitate on getting the recipe posted for you guys. The inspiration for this recipe came to me after buying far too much rhubarb at farmers market because sometimes too much of a good thing [...]

the winningest waffles

By | April 12th, 2015|Breakfast, Recipes|

So it might be official: the BEST waffles I have ever eaten, paleo or otherwise. And even better? My husband agrees. And he is a breakfast connoisseur. The guy knows his breakfast, and he is not messing around when he says that these make the list of the top 3 ever waffles he's EVER had. Woah. [...]

tigernut butter muffins and a product review!

By | April 6th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Recipes|

Ever heard of a tigernut? No, it's not made from tiger genitalia (I thought I would get that out of the way from the start). And no, it's actually not even a nut! TigerNuts are actually tubers, another radical root that has stolen my heart and my tastebuds. Even cooler? Tigernuts actually comprised up to 80% of [...]

egg-free, nut-free cocoa fudge brownies and the power of movement

By | March 20th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Autoimmune Paleo, CrossFit, Health, Movement Tips, Recipes|

Brownies, oh brownies, how I love brownies. You know what else I love (something that I haven't written much about recently, but practice every single day)? CrossFit and movement in general, really. Nutrition is the basis of health, yes, but movement, well that's what makes us human. It's something we all share a need for, [...]

buttery blondies (grain free, nut free, and delicious!)

By | March 16th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Recipes|

It's about time I posted another dessert recipe... at least that's what my husband argued when it came time for some fresh recipe testing. Sometimes a splurge is necessary, and in cases like this, I would much rather enjoy a treat that's not filled with processed sugars, flours, and crap oils. That's why I keep [...]

cranberry lemon swirl pancakes

By | December 11th, 2014|Breakfast, Recipes|

Pancakes... oh how I love pancakes. There was a time, after realizing how severe my intolerance was to certain foods, when I thought I would never get to enjoy pancakes again. I tried all kinds of "paleo" pancakes and would always end up feeling bloated, heavy, and uncomfortable from loads of almond flour and a tummy [...]

apple butter pumpkin pie

By | November 23rd, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Recipes|

Earlier this month, I posted what I believed (and still believe) to be my perfect pumpkin pie. Today, I bring to you a new unique twist on that traditional favorite. I love pumpkin pie. I mean truly, deeply love it. Is that weird? So after finally coming up with a delicious pumpkin pie recipe, I [...]

bacon and mushroom thanksgiving stuffing… keeping it wild

By | November 14th, 2014|Health, Recipes, Rice, Biscuits, Tortillas, and Mash, Soups, Salads, Sides|

It's that time of year again. Cold weather, changing leaves, family gatherings, appreciation for all that life has given us, and of course delicious food. Since starting this blog, my family has kind of handed over the reigns in most everything involving food. First, because I am a little particular about what I put in [...]
