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 […]

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 Chocolate Chip Cookies

It is really tough to find good paleo chocolate chip cookie recipes I find. I have to give credit for this recipe to Cupcakes OMG because I originally stumbled on the recipe based on a friends suggestion! I have made her recipe at least 3-4 times before and loved it. A few days ago, I […]

Paleo Mango Vanilla Smoothie

The key to this smoothies success is good quality vanilla extract. I used an all natural, organically grown vanilla straight out of Mexico! Ingredients: 1 banana 1 cup frozen mango 3 tbsp coconut milk (canned) 1 tbsp hemp hearts 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 cup filtered water Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and […]

Paleo Brownie Bites

This is a terrible picture, I know! Every time I make these, I eat them before I can get a better picture :O I don’t even want to tell you how many of these I’ve eaten lately! It makes a small serving (about 4 brownies) but if you want to make more, just double or […]

Paleo Banana Bread

I think I am in love with this recipe! It didn’t even last 2 days at our house. It’s definitely a keeper.

Paleo Chocolate Cake

I seriously never thought a paleo friendly chocolate cake could satisfy my craving for cake so well. I had a really hard time eating this one in moderation! Make this recipe dairy free by using coconut oil instead of butter or ghee. Ingredients: 2/3 cup coconut flour 1 cup cacao powder 3/4 tsp baking powder […]

Raw-ish No Bake Paleo Pumpkin Pie

This recipe is inspired and tweaked from the Gorilla Food recipe book by Aaron Ash. This book is a keeper! I’ve made a lot of stuff out of it and enjoyed it all. I really liked how this recipe was made without the use of sugar and sweetened solely by dates, shredded coconut and bananas. […]

Paleo Vanilla Cashew Cream

This sauce is really awesome and goes good with everything from paleo pumpkin pie to pancakes. I’ve tried them both and it was delicious! This recipe is sugar free, but of course you can add a little extra sweetness with raw honey or coconut palm nectar sugar. Ingredients: 1 cup raw cashews 1 tbsp vanilla […]

Raw Chocolate Banana Shake

This one is really rich and creamy, and it filled me right up! It would be perfect for breakfast or dessert. Ingredients: 1 1/2 large banana 1/4 cup raw cacao powder 1/4 cup raw cashews or cashew butter 2 tsp vanilla powder (ground vanilla beans) or good quality vanilla extract 2 tbsp raw hemp hearts […]
