Vermont Cheesecake (Lactose, Grain, Gluten + Refined Sugar FREE)

My handsome husband turns 37 today! It’s odd how when you’re young, you think of late thirties- early forties as “older” but now that we’re here… we feel great. Actually, Justin feels and looks better now than he did when I first met him! It’s incredible what a healthy lifestyle can do. Yesterday I threw him a birthday party. Full spread. Grilled skirt steak, chimichurri, tostones, salad, pineapple, guac, salsa, corn chips, turmeric rice etc. For his cake… CHEESECAKE. The hubs doesn’t have a crazy sweet tooth, he’s not even…

Flourless Avocado Brownies (paleo, keto, low carb, grain free)

How A  Brownie Is Born This recipe came about one night after dinner. My son really wanted dessert and I wan’t about to give him some sugar laden treat right before bed time. Like a mad scientist I began to throw random things into my blender. Made a batter, poured it into a ramekin and baked it in my little counter top oven (I love that thing). It was pretty good. The consistency was great, but it needed more cocoa. Either way, it satisfied my kids sweet tooth and peaked…

Lemon Curd + Dark Chocolate Cake (Paleo, Gluten Free, Low Glycemic Treat)

I am so thrilled to be partnering with Bob’s Red Mill  this Spring!  It’s a wonderful time of the year for delicious, airy confections. Not to mention my dear boy turns four. When the folks at Bob’s said they were sending me THREE of their great baking flours I was over the moon!  They sent Unbleached White All Purpose Flour, 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour and the Paleo Baking Flour. I have used the 1 to 1 Gluten Free Blend before and I will tell you the results I…

Strawberry Swirl Mug Cake (gluten free, paleo, grain free)

Mug, er Bowl Cake If you follow me on my Instagram stories or Snapchat you know my kid loves him some breakfast, especially pancakes in the morning…. but seriously, who has time to make pancakes before school on a regular basis, not this mama. However, I still want Jack to fill up with a hearty meal before school and paleo pancakes are a great vessel for that. So how can I get lots of belly filling, energy giving goodness into my little man in the wee morning hours without it…

Protein Shake Cookies

Superior Nutrition, In A Cookie Version 1.0 of these was conceived while I was on a Whole30 so I couldn’t even taste them. But by the way my toddler gobbled them up I figured they tasted good. I shared the recipe on the disappearing videos on Instagram. I saved the recipe in the Notes section on my phone as I had the full intention to make these for myself when my Whole30 was over. Jack woke up with a severe hankering for breakfast cookies. I wanted to make something that…

Two Bite Protein Cheesecakes (No Bake!)

I’m a big fan of getting the most out of your treats. These little cheesecake bites are packed with gut healing gelatin, good fats and Rootz Nutrition Super Food Paleo Protein! Slightly nutty, smooth, vanilla… The flavor is delicious and they’re super easy to make! Seriously, soaked cashews, a blender, some hot water and you’re in business. I love Rootz protein, it’s lactose free and I don’t react to any of its ingredients, it has a delicious, lightly sweet choco-nutty flavor and is made of top notch super foods like royal…

Banana Bunny Breakfast Muffins

At my mother’s cafe in Coral Gables, Fl, Green Gables Cafe, they have been serving Morning Glory Muffins for as long as I can remember. Hearty muffins made with whole wheat flour, carrot, pineapple and brown sugar. They are amazing and decadent. Not only do I miss them because I live half way across the world, but because there is no way I would eat one now. Indulging in glutinous treats is just not an option for me. Yet, there is something about dunking a muffin in to a hot…

Decadent Plantain Chocolate Cake

It had been quite a while since I baked a cake. Mostly due to my reoccurring Whole30’s. What’s a Whole30? It’s a 30 day paleo cleanse of sorts. No processed foods at all, no sugar of any kind, no alcohol, no treats, etc. It’s a great re-set for bad eating habits. I’ve done three. My bad habits, like mindless snacking sneak up on me. Anywho… about this cake! With my husband’s impeding birthday, I wanted to make something special. Justin wanted chocolate cake. Ok babe, you got it! While I…

Curried Turkey & Bacon Cupcakes

I made this today, and I was so pleased with how they turned out. I saw a beef & garnet potato cupcake on the Whole30 feed a month ago & I’ve been wanting to make something of the sort since. Today was as good a day as any, especially since I’m hosting the Autoimmune Paleo Instagram page. What a fun AIP meal! It’s not as time consuming as it looks & it’s enticing for the whole family, especially the little ones. I know my three year old was so excited…

Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Muffins (Paleo!)

I’ve been missing chocolate a lot lately. I think it’s because I’m feeling so much better & I know that chocolate isn’t a trigger food for me. What is? Sugar! Major trigger. I’m not a fan of using sugar substitutes… BUT in scarce moderation, sugar substitutes derived from plants, that don’t spike my insulin are OK. In this recipe I use Erythritol, used in large amounts it can have negative effects on digestion. Large amounts are not used in this recipe, and I do not consume erythritol everyday, so I…
