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]

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]

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]

Easy Garlic Shrimp [Whole30, Paleo]

Who are you calling a shrimp? When I was growing up, the garlic shrimp we would have came from a frozen package and I am sure had an entire stick of butter in it.  Don’t get me wrong, it was delicious.  However, it was not the cleanest and healthiest option by today’s standards.  So I… Continue reading Easy Garlic Shrimp [Whole30, Paleo]

Roasted Mixed Nuts [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Snacks on deck, La Croix on ice, you can have whatever you like.  When I am on a Whole30, I have to have some emergency snacks on hand.  These are snacks that are compliant, filling, and help me out if I am in meetings or running errands and hunger strikes.  These roasted mixed nuts are… Continue reading Roasted Mixed Nuts [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Caramel Peanut Butter Bars [Gluten Free, Dairy Free]

A cousin of Hersey’s Sweet Escapes and a Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treat. When I was growing up, my grandma was into every kind of “healthy” low-fat dessert.  This included Hersey’s Sweet Escapes candy bars.  These Sweet Escapes bars were low fat and the child version of me did not care.  I looked at these… Continue reading Caramel Peanut Butter Bars [Gluten Free, Dairy Free]
