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 healing diets with just basic modifications. And as […]

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. And if ¬†you try to make them without […]

Paleo Beef Stew with Turnips and Greens

  I am so honored to be the guest blogger on Stupid Easy Paleo this week! I’ve been following Steph’s blog since the beginning of my paleo journey and love her no-nonsense style, her dedication to real food, and her tasty recipes. The Paleo diet has tremendous healing properties for people with autoimmune diseases, especially […]

Sweet and Sour Paleo Meatballs

In my pre-paleo days, my favorite family recipe for cocktail meatballs was one of those three ingredient wonders. Sounds nice and simple, until you realize that each one of those three ingredients (a can of cranberry sauce, a bottle of chili sauce, and frozen meatballs) contained an alphabet soup jumble of chemical and artificial ingredients. […]

Cranberry Coconut Paleo Treats (Grain Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free, Egg Free)

These cranberry coconut treats are not only paleo, they are also made without nuts or eggs so they are compliant with the paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP) as well! I love holiday baking. In previous years I started making Christmas cookies right after Thanksgiving, stashing them in the freezer to later be assembled into gift tins […]

Autoimmune Paleo Protocol Friendly Holiday Menu

When you have dietary restritions, this time of year is tough. It is challenging to come up with an autoimmune paleo protocol friendly holiday menu that also satisfies people who eat a more typical diet, but it can be done! I’ve been following a grain free diet for a little more than 10 months and […]

Naturally Sweetened Healthy Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is one of my favorite holiday dishes. I’ll take it any form, even the jellied canned stuff (sans high fructose corn syrup, of course). I like it straight up or flavored with orange, extra sweet or extra tart. But I really love playing with the cranberry flavor by adding spices and this year […]

Best Ever Brined Turkey and Gluten-Free Gravy

Two years ago I mastered gravy. I roasted, I simmered, I painstakingly created a roux. The end result was incredible. The perfect blend of saltiness and fat, thickened to a perfect texture. The star of the holiday table. So good, a few of my family members even licked their plates. And then I went grain […]

Roasted Beets, Brussels Sprouts, and Carrots

I was faced with a conundrum recently when my crisper drawer contained four small beets, a handful of Brussels sprouts, and three carrots. I didn’t have enough of any one vegetable to serve the number of people I needed but I wanted an easy side dish that wouldn’t require much tending and dirtying of multiple […]

Coconut Apple Cranberry Crisp (Grain Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free)

I love fruit crisps! In my pre-paleo days I made them throughout the year, using blueberries, mulberries, pears, peaches, and apples – depending on what was in season. My favorite topping was made from white flour, white and brown sugar, butter, and oats… All of which I have since learned were not doing my digestive […]
