  This is my great-grandmother’s sauce recipe that has been passed down and perfected over many generations. I have added a few paleo modifications, but really didn’t have to change much! What sets her sauce apart are the secret ingredients – bone-in pork chops and cinnamon! The pork chops, which you might find unusual, simmer… Read more »

The Real Deal Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe from my book Against All Grain continues to be one of the most frequently made and loved, but I wanted to create a nut-free and coconut-free alternative with an egg-free option so that everyone with allergies could enjoy these classic cookies. This version has more of a crunch… Read more »

Creamy soups are my vice and I especially love to indulge in them when I want something comforting. Clam chowder was always one of my favorites growing up, but seeing as it is full of butter, cream, potatoes, and flour, I have missed it terribly over the past few years. If you’re in the same… Read more »

This week, I used my weekly Tuesday Facebook and Instagram Live segment (every week at 4pm PT!) to chat all about Paleo and Gluten-Free Summer Snacks For Kids. I know so many of you have children home from school for the summer, or are just looking for healthy snack alternatives yourself, and I was so… Read more »

You all probably caught my video with the boys from last week, where we partnered with Philips to make some air fryer Sticky Sesame Chicken Wings with Crispy Sweet Potato Fries. We have been loving using the Philips Airfryer XXL to make crispy fries, chicken, and my new favorite- crispy roasted broccoli. It’s a healthier… Read more »

Thanks to Vital Proteins for partnering with me on this recipe!    It look me a little while to love chia pudding. It started becoming super popular about 5 years ago and I didn’t love the texture of the crunchy seeds and somewhat gelatinous texture. To ease into the trend, I created a recipe in… Read more »

Thanks to my long-time friends at Vital Proteins for partnering with us on this recipe!   Are you as big of a fan of sushi or poké as we are? Ryan and I first fell in love with poké when we were living in Hawaii back in 2012 and we were so happy when the… Read more »

Seaweed salad, or wakame salad, became a huge favorite of mine while we were living in Hawaii back in 2012. I would always get a side of it when we’d go to the little poke shop by the beach. I loved the crunchy nature of it, and the sweet and slightly sour taste. I also… Read more »

  I was craving a good veggie noodle stir-fry the other day with a sweet, tangy, and slightly spicy sauce. Take-out for something like this isn’t really an option because it will either contain soy sauce (thus gluten) or rice noodles. This vegetarian sweet chili noodle stir-fry is better than take-out and is really simple… Read more »

My kids love dehydrated fruit and fruit leathers.  I used to spring for the expensive organic ones at the store, but even those usually have added sugar. The conventional versions usually have a laundry list of bad ingredients – such as high fructose corn syrup, carrageenan, and artificial food dyes. I started making my own… Read more »

  When I tell stories about the way we used to eat growing up, Sam’s Club and the Schwan truck always come up. Except I used to think it was the “Swan man!” I remember that tanish-yellow truck pulling up and delivering all of our favorite foods-  pizza bagels, corn dogs, pot pies, breakfast burritos,… Read more »

No matter how hard we try, our kids put play dough in their mouths at least once (if not all the time – it’s salty!) when they’re playing with it. Standard doughs contain wheat flour, which can make some kids extremely sick, even with the tiniest amount. For those with celiac, even contact with the… Read more »

I finally did a video for you guys on my lettuce wrap sub sandwich recipe – the AAGwich! I did a Facebook live demoing them last year, but this video will be easier for you to access and watch back when you need a a tutorial! When I’m not using leftover rotisserie chicken, my favorite… Read more »
