  • Paleo Pumpkin Sweet Potato Custard Recipe: Dairy-Free & Egg-Free

    Paleo Pumpkin Sweet Potato Custard was the finishing touch to our Thanksgiving holiday meal, and it’s incredibly easy to make. This was my husband’s first Thanksgiving in the US—he’s from Scotland—so I wanted to make a simple but delicious feast for us, including something a bit sweet for dessert. I read more…

    The Performance Paleo Cookbook Update!

    Time for an update on The Performance Paleo Cookbook! It’s been a crazy past few months working on the cookbook, but we’re at an exciting stage. I’ve turned in the manuscript and completed the photographs (still need to finish editing those) which means the lion’s share of the creative content is read more…

    Vanilla Berry Chia Pudding Recipe

    Vanilla Berry Chia Pudding is the perfect red, white and blue treat for this weekend. Seeing as it’s Memorial Day, I put together a quick, easy, festive treat for your holiday picnic or BBQ. You can make them parfait-style like I did here or just plop the chia pudding on the read more…

    Passion Fruit Panna Cotta Recipe: Paleo & Dairy-Free

    There’s nothing better than the smell of passion fruit: tropical, sweet-tart and fragrant! (Okay, maybe the smell of bacon could compete.) I saw some delectable passion fruits at the farmer’s market last weekend and immediately wanted to make something with them. Invariably, my mind jumped to a Paleo-friendly panna cotta. read more…

    Strawberry Lemonade Gummies Recipe

    Making homemade gummies with fruit and high-quality gelatin is one alternative to making lots of bone broth / soup stock for its gelatin content. These Strawberry Lemonade Gummies are a recipe I develop for BreakingMuscle.com. The combo of the berries and lemon give it a sweet-tart flavor that’s really refreshing. read more…

    Cinnamon French Toast Panna Cotta Recipe

    Cinnamon French Toast Panna Cotta is a riff on a traditional Italian panna cotta, but mine is dairy-free. Usually panna cotta is made from a combination of milk, cream, sugar and gelatin—creamy with a slightly firm texture. Of course, there’s no actual bread in my version, but I incorporated all read more…

    I Love Bacon Granola

    I <3 Bacon Granola. There, I said it. Nobody makes maple bacon granola like my friend Claudette from Cavegirl Confections. Crunchy roasted nuts, a hint of sweetness from real maple syrup and of course, the savory awesomeness of crispy bacon pieces. I’m not Paleo perfect with my nutrition, and I read more…

    3-Ingredient Banana Pudding Recipe

    This 3-Ingredient Banana Pudding is really simple. While I love convenience, the little cups of chia pudding goodness you can buy at the grocery store can be kind of pricey, especially if you’re watching your wallet. The possibilities for ingredients are really endless, but this one has just three: banana, read more…

    Why Paleo Donuts Suck

    It’s time somebody to say it: Paleo donuts suck. [Full disclosure: There are a few recipes for treats on this site, but I don’t make it a habit of posting tons of desserts because, well, they’re not a part of my plan for optimal health and wellness, and I don’t read more…

    Dark Chocolate Mint Coconut Butter Cups Recipe

    Dark chocolate mint coconut butter cups are so tempting that I only make them once a year at the holidays as sweet little homemade gifts for family & friends. They’re pretty easy to make and you can put together a large batch relatively quickly. Trust me, they’re always a huge read more…

    Paleo Dark Chocolate Coconut Chia Pudding Recipe

    This rich Paleo Dark Chocolate Coconut Pudding is so easy to make for an every-once-in-a-while treat. A couple months back, I posted a very similar recipe with gelatin and some folks wrote in requesting other options for thickeners. I reworked the ingredients just slightly and the result was equally tasty and simple read more…

    Paleo Strawberry Apple Parfait

    I eat with my eyes first, so parfaits – with their repeating layers of tasty goodness – are always appealing. This one’s made with fruit and coconut and some chopped nuts for crunch (and contains no extra added sugar), so it’s perfectly nutritious. [As an aside, I get lots of read more…

    Dairy-Free Dark Chocolate Coconut Pudding Recipe

    This dairy-free dark chocolate coconut pudding has four ingredients and is stupid-easy to make. Believe it! I occasionally eat dark chocolate, and I try to stick to soy lecithin-free, very dark (85%+), high quality stuff when I can. I wanted to use dark chocolate in an ultra simple dessert and instead read more…

    Strawberry Vanilla Rhubarb Sauce

    I’ve been on a rhubarb kick lately since it’s in season and easier to find now than at any other time. Rhubarb is a very tart vegetable but is commonly paired with fruit for a sweet counterpoint. I included some chopped dates to lessen the bite, but this sauce is read more…

    Blueberry Rhubarb Granita

    Sometimes, all the stars line up for a fantastic recipe to be born. Call it serendipity, kismet or just plain old coincidence, but when three distinct events occurred that all pointed me in the direction of this granita*, I couldn’t resist. First, I saw Paleo Cupboard’s recent post for Fresh read more…

    Paleo Rocket Popsicles

    Do you remember the sound of the ice cream truck cruising around the neighborhood in summer when you were a kid? If you were like me, you conveniently didn’t hear your mom call for dinner, but you could hear that magical music from a mile away. Growing up, my siblings read more…
