curried chicken salad with mango & toasted coconut (dairy free)

Remember when I said my taste buds have expanded and I no longer hate ethnic food? Well, curry fits into that category.  Used to hate it, now I love it.  I also used to hate mayonnaise, but now that I make my own with avocado oil I love it.  Taste buds are weird.  They’re always…

Raw Brussel Sprouts and Kale Salad w/ Lemon Dressing. My all time, most favorite salad in the world is a kale salad with lemon parsley vinaigrette.  This sounds like it could be just as good. Gluten Free Moon Pies.  Though they aren’t paleo, they are INCREDIBLE looking.   I think I could make an exception….

grain free buffalo chicken waffles

I’ve really started to notice something lately… Once upon a time long ago (ok, maybe not that long ago) I was a picky eater.  Not just a let-me-pick-those-olives-off picky eater, but a oh-my-god-I-cannot-touch-this-because-a-tiny-olive-piece-was-near-it picky eater.  Yes, it’s true.  I know it’s hard to believe, but this kombucha drinking, raw liver pill taking, fish oil swallowing…

philly cheese steak stuffed sweet potato skins

I love it when food tastes naughty, but really isn’t. I also really, really love stuffed foods.  Jalapeños stuffed with cream cheese, cookies stuffed with more cookies, my face stuffed with these… Speaking of stuffing my face, I can’t not stop eating plantain chips.  I want them all day long, with every meal.  And in…

Aside from all of the super tasty things below, I want ice cream.  All of the ice cream, all of the days.  In other news, it barely got above freezing today and I’ve taken three hot baths over the past two days. This Vietnamese Inspired Chicken & Cabbage Salad.  It looks so crunchy and crispy…

brown butter banana walnut muffins (grain/gluten free)

Before we get to the muffins, let’s talk about running. Gross, I know. As much as I despise running and as much as I loathe doing it… I think I may be starting to like it just a little bit.  Sort of.  I’ve had dreams (ok, more like fantasies) of running a half marathon for…

roasted poblano waffles (grain/dairy/sugar free)

Ugh, these are just too good. Waffles are just a danger food.  I looooooove waffles, which is a bit weird because growing up they weren’t that special.  Sure, I would gladly eat them doused in syrup AND powdered sugar whenever presented with the delicious opportunity, but they were never a breakfast I really craved. Chocolate…
