Paleo/GAPS Blueberry & Cranberry Muffins

2014 has been a good year so far for me! My new years resolution was to get seriously committed to healing my body and to follow the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) diet with absolutely no cheating. I’m happy to say that I am on day 54 of the full GAPS diet. I’ve lost the […]

My Journey to Becoming Paleo

It all started almost two years ago when my boyfriend Matt and I moved to Vancouver, BC so I could go back to school. Within 1 month of moving into an apartment in Burnaby, I had developed a really bad rash around my eyes and on my cheeks, forehead, lip and arms. I also got […]

Paleo “Zoodles” with Chicken & Cashew-Avocado Alfredo Sauce

Zoodles is my favourite word lately! You’re probably wondering what the heck I am talking about. I am not talking about Zoodles that you buy in a can (although I did grow up eating those too which is hilarious). “Zoodles” are spiral cut zucchini noodles. They are my top choice for a grain free noodle […]

Paleo Chicken “Chow Mein”

This is one of those dishes that I have been making for a long time but never watched or wrote down the damn measurements! Yesterday I finally wrote down all the measurements while I cooked and it turned out particularly good so I think I finally perfected it. Sooooo… Now I can post it on […]

Raw Cacao Protein Balls

This started as one of those ‘how do I start using up all the food I have in my cupboards’ kind of situations. I had lots of cacao powder and Sunwarrior raw vegan protein powder, among other things. They are incredibly easy to make, and I found them best served frozen or chilled otherwise they […]

Paleo Oven Baked Rutabaga Fries

Since I posted last (a long ass time ago I know!) I have witnessed more and more of my friends and family adopting or at least researching and showing interest in the paleo lifestyle. I love it. For me this means that I get to talk about it more often and with more people! Score. […]

Paleo BBQ Portobello Mushroom Burger

I always hear of people using a portobello mushroom as a vegetarian burger patty. It only seems appropriate to try it as the bun with a beef burger! Paleo style. I also figured that adding homemade guacamole and nitrate free bacon would make it double awesome, and I was right. I’ll give the ingredients for […]

Homemade Paleo Guacamole

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this before because this is one of my oldest recipes of all time! Since I came up with it, I have been making it at least once a week. It’s a classic. Ingredients: 2-3 ripe avocados 1/3 cup chopped tomato 2 tbsp finely chopped red onion 1 minced garlic […]
