BLSS Salad: Bacon Lettuce Strawberry Salmon (Paleo, Whole30, Keto)

Versitile This is my ideal meal. All day, every day I would eat this combination of fresh, crunchy and creamy! More so than the bouquet of flavors in this salad, I love how versitile it is. You can serve it as an entree meal, it’s the perfect pot luck salad and it would accompany egg dishes beautifully among a brunch spread. It also makes a killer jar salad! Add the ranch dressing first, then your salmon, follolowed by the bacon, berries and greens. Close the lids and store away some…

Tempura Zucchini Fries (Paleo, Whole30, Keto)

Real talk… it’s late… I’ve had a long day and I don’t have much to say right now. I truly just want to shower and Netflix away the few hours I have left of my evening. So I’m going to cheat and copy and paste what I wrote about these when I posted on Instagram the other day. It was a great description anyway 😉 Baked Tempura Zucchini Fries! Strips of zucchini studded with crunchy clusters of ground pili nuts. If you’ve never heard of pili nuts, pronounced (peel-y), they…

Cook Smart, Not Hard

People often ask me how I have time to make these intricate meals with a toddler at home… well… I cook smart, not hard. A little forsight, a little prep here and there & being savvy with left overs- and you can eat like a queen every time! My last 3 meals are a great example of this. Yesterday for lunch I roasted some butternut squash. I know I can’t eat a whole (big) one in one meal. I sliced half of it in to chips, and left the other…

Dry Rub Paleo Pork

I love me some slow roasted pork! I bought a 10 lb prime cut pork shoulder butt, no bone. So big! But I figured I would portion it out and freeze what we didn’t eat that day- but obviously it’s best served fresh out of the oven…. did someone say potluck? So good. Definitely a crowd pleaser, easy to make & paleo/whole 30 compliant- but you don’t have to tell that to your guests 😉 Serves 15- 20 servings Dry Rub Paleo Pork1 hrPrep Time 6 hrCook Time 7 hrTotal…

Green Gazpacho

My mother’s restaurant, Green Gables Cafe, occasionally serves this raw vegan gazpacho. Gazpacho is a traditional Spanish soup made of raw tomato & served cold. This tomato-less rendition with cashews is a perfect paleo, summer soup! When I worked in the kitchen there I would make it all the time. It’s a fantastic & fresh recipe- these sweltering summer days have me craving some! When I made it at the cafe, worked with large measurements because I was making a commercial amount, granted I still made it all in a…
