NO-BAKE PALEO APPLE PIE BITES

I’m not sure what’s going on but I’m going through a major cooked apple phase and I am HERE for it. Whether I’m topping cauliflower “oatmeal” with cinnamon sautéed apples, eating sautéed apples with banana ice cream and grain free granola on top like a paleo version of an apple crisp or just eating cooked apples on their own – I can’t get over them.

QUICK & EASY AVOCADO TUNA EGG SALAD

Even though I’m lucky enough to work for myself from home I still count on quick and easy lunches to fuel my day. When I first started my entrepreneurial journey, I took up WAY too much time in the middle of the day making my lunches. Chopping, roasting, sautéing… I realized it was getting out of hand.

Fig season BEST season, am I right or am I right!? I fell in love with figs last summer and you could say it’s getting pretty serious. I don’t see a breakup in our future anytime soon, especially with this paleo fig newton bread (with pistachios!!) in the mix.

BANANA NUT PALEO BREAD PUDDING

(Please note that this recipe is in partnership with Liberated Specialty Foods and I was provided with the products. Despite that, all opinions are honest and true!)

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.

No joke, I’ve had it every day for breakfast (except for once) this past week… if it ain’t broke why fix it?

PALEO LEMON POMEGRANATE SCONES

It definitely is the most wonderful time of the year! Oh how I LOVE the holidays. I love cozying up with peppermint tea by the tree, watching old Christmas movies (Miracle on 34th Street is by far my favorite), wrapping gifts for my family, seeing my town all lit up and sparkly… I honestly wish Christmastime would just last for months on end!!! Maybe that’s what I should ask Santa for this year.  Maybe if I leave out these paleo scones he’ll grant my wish!

HOMEMADE ALMOND MILK + WHAT TO DO WITH THE LEFTOVER PULP!

Does anyone else use cooking/baking as a way to procrastinate? I usually HATE procrastinating and typically get all of my schoolwork done days in advance (call me a nerd), but sometimes homework becomes a black hole and the only way out is to do something that makes my soul happy. So when I do procrastinate, it’s what I call productive procrastination. I’m the queen of it. It’s when I know I need to work on an essay for class, but instead draft 4 blog posts, reorganize my entire pantry and make homemade hummus, pesto AND peanut butter.
