Zucchini Pasta Alfredo with Chicken

I love Italian food, especially when it’s pasta! But why eat high-carb spaghetti that’s nutritionally empty? Zoodles are SO easy to make on a mandoline slicer or vegetable spiralizer. Traditional Pasta Alfredo is made with heavy cream and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, a dairy load some people can’t tolerate. This delicious Paleo recipe uses nutritional yeast and lemon to give a cheese flavor that's dairy-free. It uses 1 can (1 ¾ cups) of thick full-fat coconut milk instead of cream. ...

Squash pancakes with Maple Fruit Sauce are a quick, nourishing breakfast. Fresh butternut squash has a mild, natural sweetness that enriches these gluten-free, grain-free pancakes. Super easy to make, you can substitute any winter squash, such as pumpkin or acorn squash. I love butternut squash because it is quick to peel,...

This quick sauce is yummy on Squash Pancakes. In fact, it tastes fantastic on everything, even meats, chicken, and sweet potatoes. Easy to blend in minutes, it is filled with whole food nutrition.

Dairy-free Hazelnut Hot Chocolate, Mmm…

Whip up a hazelnut hot chocolate and it will change your whole day. My love affair with hazelnuts has gone to new heights of expression. Everyone knows that hazelnuts, coconut milk, and chocolate are a special combination, rich and satisfying. Even better, this is a super-easy, high-nutrition snack. The creamy, real-food taste of homemade nut milk is so superior to expensive store-bought carton beverages, you'll never want to go back. Why do we pay more for imported chemical dilutions, when we ...

You don't have to be Jewish to love potato latkes! And these delicious babies are different. These latkes are free of gluten, grain, dairy, sugar and nightshades! Hooray! The old-world recipe used white potato (a nightshade) and matzo meal (wheat grain with gluten). Instead this Paleo-adapted version uses sweet potato and almond meal. EASY! Top your latkes with my Instant Cranberry Applesauce and dairy-free Coconut Sour Cream, recipes below! Yum Yum! ...

Instant Pumpkin Spice Latte

Paleo Pumpkin Latte is a quick and satisfying pick-me-up. It's also a great breakfast! This Vegan latte uses non-dairy milk, such as coconut or almond milk. It's also a Paleo recipe, free of gluten, grains, processed ingredients, GMO's, and extracted oils. Real original whole foods are satisfying, flavorful, and healthy for the body. Frankenfoods are low in nutrients, with less flavor, but far more profitable to sell. Starbucks sells millions of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I wonder what ...

Pecan Sandies, Paleo Style

I was once addicted to those crisp, melt-in-your-mouth store-bought Pecan Sandies. I'd eat the whole bag in one sitting. Fortunately these babies are WAY better than those. These cookies are bursting with flavor and high-nutrition without any gluten, grain, sugar, or dairy. Ha Ha! But no one will ever guess they're "alternative". When the cookies were finished I thought - why not Chocolate Dipped? And they turned out fabulicious! Scroll down to see my Chocolate-Dipped Pecan Sandies. Ha ...

Spiced Beet Elixir – A Fermented Holiday Treat!

This warm non-alcoholic punch is made from spiced ginger tea, pomegranate, and fermented beets! The flavor is exalting, the feeling uplifting and enlivening. Warm spiced punch with cinnamon and cloves is a comfort food for me. This elixir combines delicious flavor and invigorating medicinal qualities.

You can always dilute it to make more by adding more sparkling water. I made it virgin, without alcohol, however you can spike it as you please. ...

Paleo Butternut Squash Soup with Toasted Seeds

Everybody loves this smooth, savory soup, especially children. The mellow flavor of butternut squash with onion and coconut make it a rich, satisfying meal. When I’m short of time, this is my #1 quickest soup recipe. I sometimes use pre-cubed organic squash, cook, blend with an immersion blender and serve in 5 minutes! When I have time, I use whole squash. I remove the seeds and toast them, because they're so delicious and it doesn’t make sense to throw them away. The seeds are high in ...

10-minute Fennel Leek Detox Soup

Are you eating your green veggies? Fennel bulbs with fluffy fennel tops are delicious, tender, economical, and taste wonderful with leek. I love blended soups, because they're so EASY to pre-make.

Pumpkin Golden Milk

This creamy rich Golden Milk is deep satisfaction in 5 minutes. SOOOOOO Delicious! Turmeric stimulates blood circulation. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory superfood that destroys cancer cells. Essentially turmeric helps to tonify the organs to keep the immune system in peak condition. But before you start sprinkling turmeric on everything, please know that curcumin (its major active compound) is poorly absorbed in the body. To boost curcumin absorption, always try to eat turmeric with ...

Addicted to coffee? A healthy brew!

85% of Americans use caffeine daily. We drink 400 million cups of Joe every day. Our coffee obsession is a roaring $30 billion industry! However, if you're an independent soul like me that wants to be truly healthy, here's a delicious alternative. I'll cut to the chase: Coffee is addictive. It slowly depletes the kidney energy, according to Chinese Medicine, which means it's VERY bad news for your creativity, long life, and your S.E.X drive, I mean your libido. Yep. Are you addicted?  Do ...

Kashmiri Curry Chicken Tenders

This exotic dish will warm you deep inside. I love tantalizing Asian spices like turmeric, coriander, and Thai ginger. Easy to prepare, just marinate the chicken, roll in coconut flakes, and bake until crispy! And it tastes absolutely divine with my No-Peanut Sauce! The secrets to its flavor are Turmeric and Galangal, also called Thai ginger. Galangal is somewhat spicier than regular ginger root and gives the flavor a tantalizing kick. You can find Galangal in Asian markets, in the ...
