Cauliflower Pork Fried Rice from One-Pot Paleo

My midwestern relatives have one-pot cooking down to a science with their casseroles, hot dishes, and stews – but what about one-pot paleo cooking? This new cookbook from Jenny Castaneda proves that it can be done deliciously, even while sticking to a whole and real food diet free

Tom Kha Gai (with AIP Modifications) and a review of Paleo Takeout

I could sum up the review of Russ Crandall’s new cookbook, Paleo Takeout, in just three words: BUY IT NOW. You could just quit reading now and jump over to Amazon and order your copy… but first take a second to scroll to the end of this post and

Paleo Peach Cobbler (AIP friendly)

It is peach season on the Gutsy By Nature urban homestead and that means just one thing… Time to create a gluten free paleo peach cobbler recipe! This version is for everyone, including those who are following the paleo autoimmune protocol because it doesn’t use nuts or eggs.

Creamy Artichoke Dip from Nourish: The Paleo Healing Cookbook (AIP)

UPDATE: Congratulations Melissa W. – You are the winner of the cookbook giveaway! Creamy artichoke spinach dip that is paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP) compliant and yet tastes just a luscious as the dairy and mayonnaise filled original? Sounds like a fantasy, but thanks to the brilliant skills

Corned Beef & Cabbage (Pressure Cooker)

St. Patrick’s Day falls on a work day this year which makes preparing a traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner hard because you probably don’t have 4-5 hours to let it all simmer gently. This is a challenge that has InstantPot’s name written all over it! What is an InstantPot? From

Paleo Fish and Chips (AIP)

I was pretty sure I had nailed this recipe for an AIP friendly fried fish the minute I took the first filet out of the fryer and broke through the crispy coating. Popping that morsel in my mouth confirmed it and instantly took me back to my Wisconsin
