Tostones (Fried Green Plantains) from Freezer Cooking for the Paleo AIP

Tostones, or twice-fried green plantains, are an AIP breakfast staple for me. Cheap, easy, and delicious – what’s not to love? Well, the fact that they take a little bit of time is one! You have to peel, cut, heat oil, cook pieces on all sides, remove

Garlic and Herb Lamb Riblets (AIP, Paleo, Instant Pot)

My dear blog friends… I am so sorry that I have neglected you these past few months! It seems like one minute it was March, then I blinked and here it is already the middle of June. A number of things have been taking up my time,

AIP Cheese (Dairy Free, Nut Free, Soy Free)

Let’s just say that I have a complicated relationship with the official food of my childhood home state of Wisconsin. I can eat a couple bites here and there of the good quality stuff and I feel fine, but the problem is that I love it too

Sweet Potato Bacon Tots from The Paleo Kids Cookbook

I can’t think of any more quintessentially American kid food than the “tater tot”; unfortunately the store bought ones are usually made with ingredients that are at best not health-promoting and at worst, downright disgusting and off limits for kids with allergies and food sensitivities.

Is “comfort food” compatible with a healing diet like the paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP)? I asked some of my blogger friends who create recipes that are compliant with the protocol for their perspective and got the resounding answer… YES! They buck the conventional wisdom that the nostalgic

Easy Yuca Oven Fries (AIP)

Since “going paleo” a few years ago, I have been introduced to a number of new-to-me foods that I now love, and high atop that list are yuca fries! Known and loved as yuca frita in much of Latin America, they are a great alternative to traditional french fries

Paleo Crab Bisque from He Won’t Know It’s Paleo

She’s been called the “Paula Deen of the AIP community” and this paleo crab bisque is a great example of why! This recipe is from the brand new cookbook by Bre’anna Emmit, He Won’t Know It’s Paleo. It is creamy, comforting, and delicious… but also good for
