PALEO CARROT CAKE SKILLET

Carrot cake has been my favorite cake since I can remember. I would make it for birthdays, Easter, you name it. I LOVED carrot cake. I realized I hadn’t had it in years due to my food intolerances, so making a gut-friendly version has been top of my list for what seems like ever so I’m SO happy to finally have this option in my life.

PALEO + VEGAN LEMON COCONUT THUMBPRINT COOKIES

There’s just something about lemon baked goods that gives me all the feels. I think it’s because they’re comforting (as all baked goods are), but also refreshing. It’s truly the best combo, isn’t it? Well these paleo + SCD friendly lemon thumbprint cookies are the perfect showcase of that intersection between comforting and refreshing!

Single-Serve Paleo Lemon Cake

Since it's the middle of winter I thought we could all use a little sunshine in the form of paleo lemon cake (the best kind of sunshine in my opinion)!

With how cute they are and how YUMMY they taste, they're sure to be a crowd pleaser.

PALEO POMEGRANATE N’OATMEAL COOKIES

Unpopular opinion: oatmeal cookies were always the best growing up. Truly – I LOVED oatmeal raisin cookies as a kid (and I’m pretty sure I was the only one LOL). These paleo pomegranate n’oatmeal cookies are the perfect grain-free, gut-healthy upgrade to that childhood favorite.

PALEO SALTED CHOCOLATE TAHINI COOKIES

I’ve been on SUCH a chocolate kick lately and I’m not mad about it. I’m so, so happy I listened to my body a few months ago and reincorporated it into my life again after giving it up for so long (it’s an iffy food on SCD which I was following strictly when I first got diagnosed with ulcerative colitis – now I’m following it more loosely).

Fall may have been underway for a little while now, but it officially feels like fall now that it’s October. I just absolutely LOVE this season and this month. The cozier weather, the cozier food, the gorgeous leaves, the sunny yet crisp days, the flavors, the pumpkin patch adventures.

PALEO LAVENDER LEMON SCONES

As many of you probably saw on Instagram, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time on Whidbey Island, my home away from home. When I think of my childhood I think of Whidbey Island – beach trips with my family, bonfires by the ocean, eating locally harvested seafood, going to the farmers market – it’s always held such a special place in my heart.

PALEO TURMERIC GOLDEN MILK COOKIES

I can’t even remember a time when anything turmeric wasn’t trendy as heck, but I don’t even want to think about a time pre-turmeric. It’s just too dang good. Especially good FOR you. So yes, while turmeric is super trendy and “in” right now, it’s trendy and “in” for a good reason (and it’s also been utilized in naturopathic medicine for over 4,5000 years… so we’re actually all really late to the game). And these golden milk cookies are the PERFECT way to easily incorporate it into your diet.

When I first started SCD in the beginning of August (how CRAZY that it’s been so long already) I was completely overwhelmed and I’m sure any of you out there who have done, or are doing, SCD or have totally had to change the way you’re eating to benefit your health, can relate.

PALEO CACAO CAULIFLOWER OATMEAL

I think by now it’s quite obvious how obsessed I am with my cauliflower oatmeal and so many of you have gotten hooked as well! (I also have another paleo oatmeal that’s made with coffee – SO GOOD). No joke, I’ve had it every day for breakfast (except for once) this past week… if it ain’t broke why fix it?
