Egg Roll Up: Bacon, Basil + Greens (Whole30, Paleo, Keto, LCHF)

Not My Genius Idea… But A Genius One None The Less! The first time I saw an egg roll up was from Eat Drink Paleo, and I was in AWE of the simple genius of the idea! The reshaping of whole food ingredients into a hand held, fun, delicious and filling meal… that right there is my jam! Case in point: my paleo sushi rolls. Luckily I always have eggs on hand. Then I just grabbed whatever else was lurking in my fridge. Bacon. Arugula. Oh, Basil! Mayo. A little…

15 Minute Cauliflower Carbonara with Dorot! (Paleo, Low Carb, Keto)

The Little Gems of The Freezer Isle I use A LOT of garlic. At least three cloves in most of my meals. It’s a hassle. For some reason, no matter if I just cleaned the kitchen and/or the floor, prepping garlic and herbs for my meals is like instant disaster. How can these tiny, tasty little things get EVERYWHERE?!?!?! Seriously, it blows my mind. Anyway, enter DOROT! When I got the email to work with them I was delighted, and then kind of perplexed that I hadn’t seen Dorot at…

Nutty Bacon Squash Toast (SCD, Whole30, Paleo)

The Bread Free Toast First it was avocado toast, then it was the sweet potato toast… which not to brag, but I had a few of mine featured on Buzzfeed & Huffington Post. Okay. That was bragging. Well forget about those because we have a new toast in town. Many of you know, I try to keep things relatively low carb around here, it keeps my gut happy. Although I do allow myself sweet potatoes and other starchy produce every few days. A few weeks ago I saw a post…

Paleo Sushi: Smoked Salmon, Bacon, Ranch & Nori

Did You Know… Every Tuesday I go live on Facebook with some sort of cooking tutorial or talking about something like Whole30 or the AIP. This week I decided to show folks how to use my Paleo Sushi rice to make sashimi style sushi, rolls and nor wraps. With a smorgasbord of ingredients at my finger tips it was fun mixing and matching. I made a classic roll with sushi grade ahi tuna marinated in sesame oil and coconut aminos, add in some avocado, red onion and mango! Another was…

Stuffed Cabbage: Beef, Bacon & Ranch (oh my!)

Officially NINETEEN days until my December Whole30 is done, and I’m feeling good. Feeling strong. Feeling energized. For me Whole30’s are all about the little victories, and getting Primal Kitchen Whole30 compliant ranch in the mail is totes a victory! I immediately started thinking of a recipe for it… other than putting it on all my salads of course ­čÖé Although crispy chicken ranch salad will be happening, SOON. Over the weekend I bought the cutest, tiniest little heads of cabbage. Perfect single portion babies. I am such a sucker…

Maple Bacon Holiday Bark

Luckily for me the folks over at my local Whole Foods (Kailua) asked me to develop this recipe for them back in November… so it was fully tested, tasted and devoured waaayyyy before my current round of Whole30 started! Score! I had guests in town that week too and let me tell you… this stuff didn’t last. Sara and I… and the kids kinda blew right through it… despite the fact that I wrapped each piece in parchment paper with twine. I might as well have left a dish out…

Warm Kale Bacon Salad with Apple Pecan Vinaigrette

I’ve been really thinking about fall salads lately. The kind of warm, delicious salad that would compliment a Thanksgiving spread. Growing up Cuban our Thanksgivings were far from traditional, usually boasting pork, rice and beans or sorts… along with a turkey! But now, my spread will be different in another way. Sure sweet potato mash will make a cameo, of course I’ll have a succulent bird, and my super healthy pumpkin pie… but paleo-fied recipes for stuffing, green bean casserole are so time consuming, and I know the rest of…

Bacon Wrapped Tuna Cakes

Albacore tuna has recently made a pretty big comeback in my diet. With options like Safe Catch brand which are tested for low mercury and use sustainable fishing methods, why not? Tuna is a great protein, and it’s really cost effective. Let’s be real, it costs more to eat healthy. Is that fair, moral, makes sense? No. But for some reason, in the country, real food costs more than packaged franken-food. As a single income family, I’m all about making those dollars stretch without having to give up delicious, healing,…

AIP Breakfast Bowl

About a month ago I shared my breakfast on Instagram. Ok, most mornings I do. I guess it’s the meal I have the most time to prepare. Jack plays really well alone in the morning and we have our routine down. After he is fed, he’ll take over the living room with some elaborate pretend game. In this fleeting moment of independence I make my coffee, my breakfast and catch up with blog stuff a bit. It’s a ritual which won’t last forever, but for now we love it. Many…

Shrimp and Bacon Breakfast Wrap with Garlic Cilantro Sauce

Low Carbing If you’ve been reading my posts, you know that I’ve been low-carb paleo for a while now. Well, while I feel great! The scale hasn’t reflected the changes I had hoped for. After talking with some other paleo bloggers that I love and respect, the consensus was that I needed to shock my body. That I needed a carb load day! So yesterday I ate #allthecarbs and it was glorious. Jicama, butternut squash, banana… it was glorious. Today, back to low carb business per usual. We’ll see if…
