I was craving a little something sweet last night and at first I was going to make some paleo/keto zucchini brownies but then I saw the almond extract in my spice cupboard and thought “ooooooh” and that was that. Inspiration struck. Enter this beautiful, delicious, guilty-tasting (but not!) baked good. Is it a breakfast item? Dessert? Snack? I think it is all of these things. I’m currently eating a piece with my morning coffee but I think it would be SO GOOD with some coconut whipped cream (or regular whipped cream) or some Enlightened ice cream ❤ Continue reading “Coconut Almond Zucchini Cake (Paleo & Keto)”
I am all for living a life filled with more whole-foods, following a paleo-ish diet, low in carbs and high in fats but I need things. Like bread. Okay? Judge me if you want to…but I cannot and REFUSE to live a life without bread.
I am beyond excited to share this recipe for this Paleo and Keto Sandwich Bread because, even though it’s completely grain and gluten free, it tastes SO GOOD and the consistency is both moist and soft just like the “regular” sandwich bread we used to eat.

The name of these little delicious morsels may be a mouthful to say, but I promise – these are some of the easiest and most flavorful fat bombs you can make!
They really do taste like lemon cheesecake and, surprisingly, are not overwhelmingly coconut-y. They are just so good! And they take about 5 minutes to make, if that!
I just know that I almost always have these on hand because sometimes something with a little fresh “zing” is just plain ol’ refreshing ❤ Thank you, lemon, for that!

I am so happy (and a little impressed) with these “cheatos”:-) They are suuuper low carb and totally satisfy my desire for a crunchy snack! They are great for dipping, too! Try softened vegetable flavor cream cheese, hummus(watch the carbs!), sour cream, cheese sauce, etc. AND they go amazingly along side chicken or tuna salad. Lastly, you can use them as a fun salad topper…almost like a crouton!
The macros for the WHOLE recipe are 31F/2netC/36P ❤

Do you all remember that crazy “Cabbage Soup Diet” that was all the rage 10-15+ years ago? I sure do! My dad tried it a few times and even after the fad was over one thing remained…THE SOUP!! I always absolutely loved the soup!! 😀
I know it might sound crazy, especially if you are familiar with how strange the diet was, but I swear up, down, and sideways that the soup is amazing! And it the ingredients are veggies, veggies, and more veggies. It is like eating a salad…but hot…or cold, actually, because I love it both ways!
It may not be the most beautiful dish you’ve ever laid eyes on but just trust me…You want this in your life.

These…are…SO GOOD!!!!! These have such amazing flavor and are light, simple, not too sweet and just melt in your mouth. Plus they’re raw so they are quick and simple to make AND give you a good serving of healthy fats ❤I made these for Valentine’s Day this year (hence the heart shapes & pink frosting) but you could make these any ol’ time and leave the frosting white or make it any color you’d like, for that matter. They keep for a week or 2 in the fridge and could be made in larger batches and kept in the freezer.

One of the things I miss most since cutting out (moooost of the time) dairy is CHEESE!!! I absolutely love cheese. All cheese, any cheese. White cheese, blue cheese, hard cheese, soft cheese!!!
Ok. Cheese-love rant over. 🙂
I would have NEVER thought just 4 simple ingredients together would yield something that tastes JUST LIKE one of my much-lobed cheeses: Parmesan. And it takes just about 1 full minute to make and will keep in the fridge for a 2-3 weeks, easily!!

I have been making this dish for YEARS and I’d like to think it is semi-famous at this point. Everyone who has ever tried it always asks me for the recipe right away or weeks later or months later…I even had someone ask me for the recipe years after I had made it for them. Needless to say, it is a meal people remember!!!

These are officially my new favorite game day/party snack!!!! They were quick and simple and the flavor was just AMAZING!!!! Not to mention they are HEALTHY 🙂 So, I recommend you make these this weekend and eat all of them. Then repeat the next weekend. And pair them with my 90-Second Bleu Cheese Dip 🙂 Continue reading “Buffalo Cauliflower Poppers”
Cauliflower “rice” has become an important staple I always try to have in my fridge! It is easy to make a fairly large batch of it in a short amount of time and it is so nice to have handy for quick meals!! There are two methods to making it that I have tried and this is my personal favorite: Continue reading “Cauliflower “Rice””
