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]

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]

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]

Strawberry Almond Chia Pudding [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

More effective than the Shake Weight. I used to love yogurt, but when I did my first Whole30, I gave it up and never really looked back.  Fast forward a few years later, and I am doing my annual Whole30, but this time I have two friends doing it with me.  There is strength in… Continue reading Strawberry Almond Chia Pudding [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Watermelon Salad [Options for Paleo, Vegan, Whole30]

Sweet and Spicy, in a salad?  I'm watermelovin' it. It’s a few days after July 4th and that means I have a ton of leftover watermelon in my fridge that I need to eat before it goes bad.  That is pretty much how this salad was born.  This recipe is super simple to throw together. … Continue reading Watermelon Salad [Options for Paleo, Vegan, Whole30]

Homemade Sour Cream and Onion Chips [Paleo, Vegan]

Because chips happen. My name is Virginia and I am addicted to chips.  I remember once in 2nd or 3rd grade we ran out of chips when packing my lunch, so my mom and I stopped at the gas station on the way to school that morning and she ran in and got the “Lay’s… Continue reading Homemade Sour Cream and Onion Chips [Paleo, Vegan]
