Chocolate Chia Pudding [Paleo, Vegan, Whole30 ingredients]

We kinda have a chocolate mousse situation over here.  By now y’all have heard all about my chia puddings.  We have Snickerdoodle, Strawberry Almond chia pudding, and now Chocolate Chia Pudding.   This Chocolate Chia Pudding is simple to make, and is paleo, vegan, and is made with Whole30 ingredients.  I am not going to officially… Continue reading Chocolate Chia Pudding [Paleo, Vegan, Whole30 ingredients]

Turkey Chili [Whole30 and Paleo]

I made this stuff all year--it’s that good.   There isn’t some huge backstory on this recipe, or if there is, I don’t remember it because I have been making this one for so long.  Back in college, I made a turkey chili recipe from Rachel Ray and I adapted it some and ended up making… Continue reading Turkey Chili [Whole30 and Paleo]

Snickerdoodle Chia Pudding [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Yes, it is as close to a snickerdoodle you are going to get during a Whole30. My dear friend, Mary, introduced me to chia pudding a few years ago during a Whole30, and I have taken the concept and expanded it to something that mirrors one of my favorite cookies.  Truthfully, I was inspired by… Continue reading Snickerdoodle Chia Pudding [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Steak Marinade [Whole30, Paleo]

Not every steak technically needs a marinade, but once you try this marinade you will do this all with all your steaks. I used to marinate my steak in salt, pepper, and worcheshire sauce.  But then I did a whole30 and realized that worcheshire sauce has sugar, so I had to get creative with how… Continue reading Steak Marinade [Whole30, Paleo]

The Midnight Sun Martini

As delicious as blood is to a vampire. (Get ready for all the Twilight references.)  Back in 2005, I was in high school and too self-absorbed to pay attention to the little phenomenon called Twilight.  Fast forward several years, and Stephanie Meyer put out four books to create the Twilight Saga we know today.  Kristen… Continue reading The Midnight Sun Martini

Cookie Dough Chia Pudding [Vegan, GF, DF, Paleo option]

Previously proven by Cookie Crisp, you can also have cookies for breakfast with this recipe.   I love cookie dough just as much as any normal, sane person (IE: ALOT), so it was natural that I wanted to create a cookie dough chia pudding recipe based on my original chia pudding recipe (which is also fantastic). … Continue reading Cookie Dough Chia Pudding [Vegan, GF, DF, Paleo option]

Melody’s Maple Blondies

Who the heck is Melody? I know what you are thinking.  “Who is Melody and why are these her Maple Blondies?  And if they are her Maple Blondies, why aren’t they on her blog?”  Well my precious readers, Melody is a friend of mine (I hear my husband already hollering “She was my friend first!”)… Continue reading Melody’s Maple Blondies

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus [Whole30, Paleo]

Looks fancy. Easy to make. Normally when I have steak, I love some sort of white potato as the accompaniment (mashed potato, baked potato, oven roasted potatoes--I don’t discriminate).  It wasn’t until I got older that I realized that I should probably have SOME sort of color or green vegetable on my plate too, which… Continue reading Bacon Wrapped Asparagus [Whole30, Paleo]

Greek Shrimp Salad [Paleo, Whole30]

I am pretty sure the only thing that makes this Greek are the crackers I recommend to top this salad, but I am just going with it.   One of the first meals I ate out after my first Whole30 was at Taziki’s and I got their Greek Salad with grilled shrimp.  However, I removed olives… Continue reading Greek Shrimp Salad [Paleo, Whole30]
