Tuna Zoodle Casserole cashews feature gluten free greens paleo seafood whole30 

Tuna Zoodle Casserole

My husband loves tuna noodle casserole. I have to admit, I didn’t even know what it was until I met him. It’s just one of those things, like many American comfort food staples, we didn’t have in my house. My parents are Cuban, they immigrated to this country in the eighties. While I don’t think my moms cooking was very representative of Cuban cooking, she had her own style, it definitely didn’t include casseroles. I like to think of my mother as my greatest teacher. I inherited her passion for…

Bone Broth…. Pills? AIP beef gluten free paleo 

Bone Broth…. Pills?

Not Into Bone Juice? I don’t know how many times I’ve gotten the “yulkgh” sound from folks when I mention to them that I often drink bone broth. I guess the word bone causes the sound. First off bone broth, aka stock… like old fashioned how Grandma made it stock… IS THE BASIS OF FLAVOR IN MOST COMFORT FOODS! Second.. it’s magic. Yup, I said magic. While the science to back up the healing properties of bone broth is spotty… no one can deny them. Not even doctors. Also, there…

GIANT! Low Carb Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies have always been my favorite treat! I haven’t made them much lately because I didn’t have a recipe that fit into my current nutrient intake balance. This low carb paleo thing is really working for me, and eating outside of the parameters, of my set carb intake is a lot more than “breaking a diet”… it’s committing to feeling like crap for a few hours, even a whole day. Another inspiration for these low carb cookies is my niece. My little two year old princess, with a…

Now that the summer months are almost a memory, as the weather begins to cool down it’s time for those hearty, oven recipes! This Jack Pie, lovingly named so after my son is delicious! I shared this recipe when I hosted the Whole30 Instagram forever ago and it’s been a hit. I thought I’d give it it’s proper home on the blog. Why Jack? Well, it’s a Shepherd’s pie type dish with Cuban flavors… So half Irish, half Cuban,  like my son. Bonus this version is a one skillet wonder….

Pesto-Churri Super Green Sauce dressing feature gluten free greens healthy fats paleo vegan whole30 

Pesto-Churri Super Green Sauce

We often lump herbs and spices into a category of tasty things to make our food flavorful. These whole food seasonings are FOOD! Herbs pack lots of great nutrition. Did you know that Mint, Basil and Cilantro score the highest on the ANDI scale. Ok, I had to google that, so an ANDI score is a number given to whole food ingredients to rate how many nutrients per calorie they have. These babies have the most! Talk about PACKED with goodness. So I love this sauce because it’s tangy like chimichurri…

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner: Leftover Salad

I love being able to re-invent food, to take left overs and make it something completely different. For one thing it keeps thing interesting, and secondly it eliminates the gross factor. Anyone else get kinds grossed out by leftovers? Mostly fish and chicken give me the heeby geebies…. don’t know why. They just do. Chicken salad however… or anything coated in mayo is good to go. I love mayonnaise. True story. Back in my restaurant days I was the sauce queen, I would make aioli (fancy for mayo) of all…
