Thai Turkey Burger (Whole30, Paleo, Low Carb)

Working Vacation I’ve been meaning to post this recipe for a week now, but it’s crazy how hectic life can be. Living in Hawaii, away from most of my family, working from home… it’s pretty chill. My husband and I have really created a revitalizing environment, where the only thing that makes us busy is the activities we choose to participate in. Usually some sort of outdoor adventure or work out (other than our jobs), and the usual parenting duties. Being here, in Miami, with the hustle and bustle of…

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…

Pumpkin Sage Mini Meatloaves

This is one of those easy peasy recipes that you will make a few times before you just know it by heart and even start making your own versions. The possibilities are endless with things like this. I love them because they’re a fast batch cook protein option that I can store in the fridge and heat up for lunch. Great over greens, chopped up in to stir fry, or even alone as a hearty snack. Perfect timing with these babies too as I’m starting my 4th Whole30. One awesome…

Veal & Bacon Meatloaf

I’ve been meal prepping & batch cooking for a few families here on the island, specifically AIP & Whole30 meals. It’s a lot of fun and I love providing healthy food for families. Cooking in such large quantities weekly has me experimenting with classic recipes to jazz them up, foods that hold well and are great left over. Meatloaf definitely falls in to those categories. It’s a fantastic batch cook food and is awesome leftover, even cold! This meatloaf is packed with minced veggies that give it a juicy, soft…

Salmon & Sweet Potato Cakes

There’s something about fish being fishy that really puts me off. Yet, I consider my self a fish lover. I will often order it when we go out, I love ceviche & sushi- but at home I’m weird about it. So I don’t often make it. I scored some wild caught salmon at a good price… what to do with it? I hate making meals that leave me feeling meh… then inspiration hit! Salmon cakes over salad… sweet potato & salmon cakes… and I’ll make a chive aioli… with poppy…

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…
