Zesty Marinated Olives

These marinated olives are a pretty addition to a spread of party food and offer a nicely complex flavor contrast to the usual other finger foods. They fit it into pretty much anyone’s diet, whether it be paleo or vegan or low-carb, and work nicely with most

Paleo Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms have always been one of my favorite appetizers, but most recipes use gluten-filled breadcrumbs and lots of dairy. Delicious, but not compatible with a paleo eating template. Crab cakes are another favorite of mine but the paleo-versions of them just don’t hold together very well.

Double Trouble Paleo Chocolate Cookies (Grain Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free)

These paleo chocolate cookies meet the technical criteria to be considered “paleo” but let’s not fool ourselves into thinking they are healthy! They are  grain free and dairy free, but they are definitely treats and should be eaten in moderation. Key phrase there: should be. I had

Healing Diet for Crohn’s Disease: The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD)

This post is the first in a series I plan that will review healing diets for Crohn’s disease. I started with the Specific Carbohydrate Diet™ (SCD) because it is the first one I tried myself. Look for future posts on paleo, autoimmune paleo (AIP), Perfect Health Diet, and
