Chocolate Pumpkin Sour Cream Waffles

The rich, mellow flavor of pumpkin blends beautifully with chocolate.

Sprouted Quinoa Salad with Avocado

This is my favorite way to eat quinoa, because it is delicious, high in fiber, nutritious and super-quick! Quinoa is a gluten-free, celiac-safe complete protein, which makes it an ideal nourishing vegetarian meal. Quinoa is an ancient Incan plant related to beet and chard. Since it's not a grass or a grain, I guess it sort-of qualifies as "Paleo". Quinoa has countless health benefits: It is high in magnesium, fiber, minerals, and it acts as a natural pro-biotic to promote intestinal health. ...

When I lived in Venice, Italy, I enjoyed risotto almost every day. Ha Ha! But sadly, it's loaded with carbs, and I gained a lot of weight.

Paleo Guacamole, Nightshade-free

My favorite avocado snack is usually made with tomatoes, cayenne, and jalapeños. So here's a traditional Mexican recipe that'e easy on your digestion.

Nightshades work slowly, their negative effects often delayed ...

Best Dairy-free Parmesan Cheese

This is probably the best recipe I ever created. Back in 2012 I was allergic to cheese. Since I LOVE Italian food, I was HIGHLY MOTIVATED to recreate the flavor of Parmigiano Reggiano! This is coconut cheese with a ZING! Grate it, slice it, or cut into chunks. Instead of dairy, it uses coconut butter, lemon, nutritional yeast, and optional Vitamin C for a sharp, aged cheese flavor. BTW I lost my cheese allergy! I discovered I can tolerate dairy that's organic, grass-fed, and unpasteur...

Zoodles alla Carbonara, Paleo style

Everyone loves Spaghetti alla Carbonara! This easy 15-minute meal is high in protein, low in carbs, Paleo-adapted with zoodles, or zucchini noodles! We think of this as a traditional Italian dish, however it's actually a 1944 adaptation of US Army rations. Spaghetti alla Carbonara was invented by a smart Italian refugee woman during WWII. It seems American troops shared powdered eggs and bacon with starving coal diggers who had fled to the hills around Rome to escape the Germans. ...
