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]

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]

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]

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]

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]

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]
