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]

Roasted Red Peppers [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Turns out you can make roasted red peppers at home and don’t have to buy them from a jar. I love roasted red peppers on two things: salads and bruschetta.  Ok now that I am thinking about it, I also love them on pizzas and in enchiladas, so maybe I should not pigeonhole myself so… Continue reading Roasted Red Peppers [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

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]

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]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread [GF, DF; Paleo and Vegan Options]

Delusions of grandeur over here as I post fall recipes in the middle of summer, but we will pretend it is fall. Has anyone ever been to Great Harvest Bread Company?  If not, I highly recommend you check it out.  They have fantastic breads, one of which is their pumpkin chocolate chip.  I took it… Continue reading Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread [GF, DF; Paleo and Vegan Options]

Tuesday Tips: Homemade Balsamic Glaze

I love a good balsamic glaze.  Maybe on some bruschetta, a salad, a flatbread….you get the idea.  For a while, I thought the only way to have a sweet balsamic glaze at home was to buy it from a store and all those store brands seemed to have “caramel color” (like what in the world… Continue reading Tuesday Tips: Homemade Balsamic Glaze

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Since this is best served cold, it looks like we really CAN have pumpkin spice anything all year long. Ahhhh, pumpkin spice.  What’s not to like?  If you are super basic like me, you like pretty much anything that has pumpkin spice.  (Fun fact: I do NOT like pumpkin spice lattes, but I am convinced… Continue reading Pumpkin Spice Smoothie [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Mexican Chocolate Bread [GF, DF, Paleo, Vegan Option]

Spicy and Sweet: Fire emoji, Red dress dancing lady emoji, chocolate bar emoji, pumpkin emoji. I am obsessed with fall and all things fall like the basic girl that I am.  This includes making anything pumpkin.  But, it’s the thick of summer and I thought it may be too soon to post my traditional pumpkin… Continue reading Mexican Chocolate Bread [GF, DF, Paleo, Vegan Option]

Airfryer Truffle Fries [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

A shake does not come with these fries. French Fries: simple to make, but dangerous because you may just become addicted.  These truffle fries only require a few ingredients and a few minutes in the airfryer. They are perfect with a hamburger, salad, or as a happy hour snack.   The hardest part of this recipe… Continue reading Airfryer Truffle Fries [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Homemade Pico De Gallo [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

You’re gonna want a pico this. We recently ordered some fresh produce from a local farm in the area.  (I highly recommend checking out Needmore Farms if you are in the RTP area of Raleigh.)  My eyes were definitely bigger than my stomach because I ordered more fruits and veggies than we could reasonably eat,… Continue reading Homemade Pico De Gallo [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]
