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 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 […]

Paleo Chicken Bacon Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing

First off, I have to say how sorry I am about slackin’ hard in the blog post department! Life gets so crazy sometimes, and important things get put on the back burner. I think this recipe and the next (paleo portobello mushroom burger) will make up for my slacking! So, here we go. I’m actually […]

Paleo Homemade Salsa

Lately I have been on a lettuce taco kick and what better to top it off with than some fresh homemade salsa and guacamole! Ingredients: 2 finely diced large tomatoes 1/8-1/4 cup finely diced white onion 1 tbsp finely diced fresh jalapeno pepper 3 finely diced garlic cloves juice of 1 lemon 1-2 tsp raw […]

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 […]
