Wild Halibut with Lime Cilantro Sauce

Wild Alaskan Halibut comes from the deep waters off of the Alaska coast. It has a snowy white, firm, and flaky flesh that tastes slightly sweet. This pungent sauce adds a zesty flavor to the mild fish. Steaming is a gentle, low-temperature way to cook fish, and takes just 2-4 minutes

Thai Lunch in a Leaf

My favorite Thai appetizer, Mieng Kum, is a symphony of flavors that tantalize the taste buds, with every known flavor in each bite: sweet, pungent, sour, salty, and spicy. Easy to prepare, this Paleo version makes a healthy lunch or a beautiful appetizer for gatherings. Vary the recipe according to your taste

Blackberry Superfood Frappe

Oh my, I had this for breakfast today! It’s also a fantastic 1-minute snack. Blackberries are refreshing and loaded with anti-oxidant compounds. Protein powder gives this treat the holding power of a full meal. It was such a pretty color that I enhanced it with beet.

Paleo Chicken Enchilada Casserole

A luscious and authentic Southwest dinner – Paleo style, this tastes even better than the original Tex-Mex version. I made it for a potluck dinner, and it vanished. However no one could believe it is gluten-free, grain-free, corn-free, and cheese-free.

Cashew Mayo

Quick to blend, and way tastier than oily store-bought mayonnaise, you’ll want to spread this creamy mélange on everything! Cashews make a wonderfully smooth base for mayo, and they’re lower in fat than other nuts.

These delicate cheesecake bars are a luscious disguise for whole food nutrition. High protein yogurt or kefir, almonds, and chia seeds offer a naturally nutrient-dense treat.

Homemade Coconut Yogurt

Here’s a foolproof recipe for thick, luscious coconut yogurt. This recipe has a rich flavor and dense texture, almost like Greek yogurt. It’s Paleo, dairy-free and vegan. It tastes great with fruit, and is easy to digest. Coconut yogurt is naturally sweeter than milk yogurt, so it doesn’t need to be sweetened.

Paleo Pâté

Liver is more than a seasonal delicacy. It is one of Nature’s most potent superfoods! This pate tastes rich and creamy, much like traditional pâté de foi gras. The main difference is you can make it in 15 minutes or less. I wanted a way to prepare liver with minimal cooking

Scrambled Eggs Florentine with Dairy-free Cream Cheese

Yum! Here’s the easiest high-nutrient breakfast in town. Make it in 5 minutes! Eggs Florentine sounds fancy, but it’s just eggs over wilted spinach. In Florence they poach their eggs, however you can prepare them any way you like. I love scrambled eggs because they’re quicker, and it’s easy to blend Paleo “Cream Cheese” into them.

Hemp Mayo with Sassy Flavor Variations

I’m so excited about this new discovery! Easy Vegan Mayonnaise that’s smooth, delicious, and healthy too! Slather it on sandwiches or wraps. Use it a dip, a salad dressing, or a sauce for veggies. I wanted a creamy homemade mayo that’s ready in minutes, with no risk of curdling

Easy Blackberry Sauce

I can’t remember what happened. I spun the blender, and somehow poured this sauce on the Chocolate Brownie Waffles. I’ve no memory after that – just pure, delicious flavor. Perhaps I just blacked out or drifted into a parallel dimension, transported further

Spaghetti Carbonara

I love authentic “carbonara”, but carbs in the pasta cause me to gain weight. THIS delicious Paleo version is super-low-carb! Zucchini noodles are the key to an easy meal.

I’m not Irish, but I love Ireland and I especially love GREEN. Here’s an absolutely delicious, INSTANT and refreshing mint mousse that will make your taste buds AND your blood cells tingle. It’s so easy, just blend and enjoy in 5 minutes. I would NEVER use food coloring, so I had to come up with a HEALTHY way to create the prefect color of green. Well, why not chlorophyll, the original phyto-chemical that makes plants green? Cholophyll controls photosynthesis, AND it is a powerful body de-toxifier. You should probably be taking this anyway, because it increases the oxygen available to the

Paleo Ketchup

Smooth and flavorful ketchup means the best tomatoes, and a perfect balance of tart, sweet, and a bit spicy. This easy homemade ketchup tastes so delicious you’ll want to use it on everything! It’s quick to make in the blender, then simmer and it’s ready to enjoy. I used Eden’s Organic Roma crushed tomatoes, which are packed in an amber glass jar to protect the nutrients from being destroyed by light.  It’s important to buy tomatoes either raw or in a glass jar, never canned. Tomatoes are high in acidity, which dissolves the toxic BPA plastic lining in cans, so

Risotto alla Milanese, Paleo & Vegan

I love traditional saffron risotto, made with arborio rice and lots of Parmesan cheese! Just so you’re not deprived, here’s a cauliflower rice recipe that tastes almost the same. Paleo cauliflower rice is a quick and easy low-carb side dish, and I find it lighter on the digestion than rice.

No-Tomato Ketchup

Heinz is yummy – however THIS ketchup is tastier! Tart, sweet, and rich all at the same time. If tomatoes are off your list, this is for you. It’s made of carrot, sweet potato, and beet, but you’d never guess. Commercial ketchup is loaded with high-fructose corn syrup or sugar, so why buy it when you can have more flavor, lower carbs, and higher nutrition for less money? The recipe uses natural chicory root Just Like Sugar Table Top sweetener, which has zero sugars and zero calories, to spare you the glycemic rush. Or use your favorite sweetener. Just blend

Sweet potatoes are also high in fiber, which gives them a “slow burning” quality. Just blend the ingredients slightly warm, and they’ll soften into a lovely pudding quality.

Broccoli with Cheese Sauce – Vegan!

I just discovered a super-easy way to make delicious dairy-free cheese sauce for broccoli. It’s so tasty and quick! Broccoli is an important source of calcium for folks that don’t consume dairy, such Paleo dieters and Vegans. Instead of cheese, the recipe uses coconut milk, lemon juice, and nutritional yeast. You can choose to use the broccoli stems or not. I love broccoli stems, and they’re chock full of healthy nutrients like Vitamin-C, Vitamin-A, beta-carotene, folic acid, and fiber. Broccoli is best steamed to retain nutrients. This sauce is wonderful on cauliflower too! As a vegetable side dish it serves
