Maybe you have a friend, family member or loved one that is on the autoimmune protocol or lives with chronic illness.  What should you get them? What would help to make their life a bit more joyful or comfortable?  I’ve complied a list here of some of the best holiday gifts around the web.  And…

Pumpkin Pie in a Mug

Maple syrup, pumpkin spice and everything nice all cozied up in a mug and ready for you to nibble or scarf.  Two minutes to mix + 1 minute to cook = 3 minutes to fall-flavored pie bliss. It doesn’t need to be Halloween or Turkey Day for you to enjoy this delicious and convenient little…

Instant Pot AIP Brisket

Well, hello there, juicy beef brisket.  Oh, you’re full of flavor, AIP compliant, Whole30 and Keto friendly TOO?  AND I can make you in the Instant Pot?  My, my, my.  Come hither. OK, I will now stop talking to the piece of meat like it’s a….ahem…piece of meat. *I know.  Groaner alert.* You’ll find zero…

Homemade Smoked Salt

Smoky.  Salty.  Savory.  Simple!  Talk about a flavor-punch.  And guess what?  You don’t need a smoker to make this scrumptious Smoked Salt.  All you need is a food processor or blender, smoked tea leaves and Himalayan salt. My favorite way to use this salt is to impart the likeness and flavors of smoke or barbecue…

Everyone Is The Unskilled Cavewoman

We’ve all been hit with that feeling at some point in our lives that we are completely and utterly unprepared for something.  Whether it be the joyful news of a first pregnancy; the sudden death of a family member; a job promotion with larger responsibilities; or even registering for college abroad.  Something deep in our…

Alfredo Flatbread Pizza

Sometimes nightshade-free nomato sauce just doesn’t quite hit the spot like you want it to.  For instance: On pizza.  I am a fan of using ye olde pumpkin puree + beet duo to snazz up an Italian stew or zoodle dish here and there (and especially in my No-Cook AIP BBQ Sauce), but for some…

Dan Dan Noodle Bowl

Boy, do I miss the luxury of ordering take-out!  There just ain’t much going on here in the Dallas area in terms of Paleo or allergen-friendly dining.   Sure, once in a while, I take the chance from one of our two go-to Asian eateries…which are either sushi pick-up or hibachi delivery…but everything’s gotta be ordered…

Seltzer Batter Fish

Now THIS fish fry is currently my favorite recipe!  It’s so crispy and crunchy and golden.  Super dip-able and absolutely perfect in texture.  This is so close to beer battered fish that you wouldn’t even guess it’s Paleo and AIP compliant! (If you want a low carb & Keto version of fried fish with just…

No-Cook AIP BBQ Sauce

Traditional barbecue sauce is full of nightshades and other inflammatory ingredients: tomatoes, chili powder, corn syrup, black pepper…you name it.  This autoimmune paleo friendly BBQ has none of those funky additives yet all of the bold, spicy flavor you would expect out of a grill-worthy sauce. The secret to this recipe is Anthony’s ground ginger. …
