Paleo Meatballs that will fool your Italian grandmother! (AIP-friendly)

It has been well established that paleo meatballs do not NEED a binder like bread or breadcrumbs to hold their shape. Recipes for grain free and dairy free meatballs can be found and most of them taste really good. But they still lack a certain authenticity, a softness, a “meatball-iness.” Or rather, they are heavy on the “meat” […]

Paleo Turkey and Gluten Free Gravy (Pressure Cooker)

I love gravy. It has always been my favorite part of any holiday meal and so I was thrilled that the gluten free gravy I created last year from the drippings of our Thanksgiving turkey was plate-licking delicious. Unfortunately, that gravy was the end result of a process that started 24 hours prior and I just don’t […]

Tostones – Fried Green Plantains

Tostones are my new obsession. I make them for breakfast at least a couple times a week, since discovering they were a great source of paleo and AIP-friendly starch. What are they? Tostones are fried green plantains and are also called patacones, fritos verdes, or banan peze – depending on which country is doing the […]

Easy Garlic and Rosemary Roast Beef

This recipe for garlic and rosemary roast beef is dead simple to make and so tasty! I used grass-fed sirloin tip roast, but you could make this with any of the lean cuts that tend to be tough if not handled properly, including rump roast, cross-rib roasts, sirloin roasts, and top round. The basic template […]

15+ Paleo Yuca Recipes

Yuca. (Or is it “yucca”?) Also known as manioc, cassava, or tapioca. This root vegetable is a major staple food for more than half a billion people in the developing world – yet it was completely foreign to me until I began seeing paleo yuca recipes that used it for miraculous things like  crisp flatbreads and egg […]

Zucchini Cheese (AIP, SCD)

Zucchini cheese. Seriously. Cheese made from zucchini. I kid you not! A couple days ago I happened to see an Instagram post which purported to show non-dairy, nut-free, and soy-free “cheese” made from zucchini. As I am progressing through this month of a paleo reset, I’m realizing that I feel a lot better when I […]

Garlic and Lime Marinated Cube Steak

This recipe is a riff on the simple Cuban dish called “bistec de palomilla.” It is good, simple home cooking at its finest and turns a cheap cut of meat into something tender and tasty. The featured meat is cube steak, which is one of the cheapest cuts I can get from my local grass […]
