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]

Tuesday Tips: Easy Shredded Chicken [Whole30, Paleo]

I think everyone can use more easy shredded chicken in their lives (except for the vegans and vegetarians.  Sorry y’all, this one is not for you).  It is perfect for anything--tacos, enchiladas, soups, loaded baked potatoes, sandwiches, or salads.  When doing meal prep, this Tuesday Tip makes having shredded chicken easy to have on hand… Continue reading Tuesday Tips: Easy Shredded Chicken [Whole30, Paleo]

Death By Chocolate Smoothie [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

I could basically call this a milkshake, but I won’t be dramatic like that. I love chocolate.  Who doesn’t? (Besides those poor unfortunate souls who are allergic to chocolate, God bless.)   So any time I can fit chocolate into my diet, I do.  I also love smoothies, but I am more selective on these. … Continue reading Death By Chocolate Smoothie [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Loaded Chicken Baked Potatoes [Whole30, Paleo]

The motherloaded potato.  When I go to McAlister’s Deli, I always get a Grilled Chicken Spud.  It has grilled chicken, cheese, tomatoes, green onion, and butter.  (Now I always get a chocolate chip cookie too, but that is not part of the journey today.) I wanted to find a way to make this recipe Whole30,… Continue reading Loaded Chicken Baked Potatoes [Whole30, Paleo]
