Roasted Almond Butter

Almond butter is one of those things that I must always have around. I use it in so many recipes; for cooking breads or date balls, topping on pancakes, or just for snacking on. I love the stuff, and since I’ve had access to ordering almonds in bulk, here, I really have no excuse. This is one of those staple recipes that is so easy to make. The only ingredient you need is almonds; that’s […]

Flourless Sweet Potato Pancakes

As a kid I remember sitting at the kitchen counter while Grandmama cooked crepes for us. This was a special occasion, but one I cherished. Though I was never one to obsess over sweet things, this breakfast was special because the thin crepe made this usual cakey dish quite elegant. I remember serving the crepe with sliced apple, a combination she recommended, wrapping it up and eating like a burrito with the occasional dip in […]

Warm Blueberry Compote

Oh the blueberry! I must say my favorite fruit is blueberries. I remember as a young child traveling to an island of blueberries; where one could eat as many as they possibly desired-truly a dream come true as a kid. It’s a vague yet lovely memory that I keep with me every time I indulge in this beautiful fruit. When in-season and fresh, they are delightful atop yogurt or any breakfast bowl. On the other […]

Turmeric Buckwheat Granola

I love buckwheat because it is not a grain. Despite the name buck “wheat”, it is not related to wheat at all, but is actually considered a seed. When cooked however, this seed acts very much like a grain, so it’s perfect if you are avoiding grains but want that feel. For this granola recipe we will be using raw buckwheat which is greenish in color. Sometimes you will see roasted buckwheat sold, also known […]

Grain-free Banana Pancakes

Paleo to me simply means whole foods. I overheard someone say to label desserts paleo is silly because they would not have had access to these ingredients in the paleolithic time period. Calling brownies, cookies, or pancakes “paleo” is inappropriate because no caveman is making cookies. Those alive during The original recipe that inspired this post, was from Pathways to Family Wellness Magazine recipe blog. That recipe is delightful. It is simple, has only three […]

Chocolate Snowballs

Winter has officially arrived. Snow has fallen on several occasions. The days grow shorter as the night grows longer. We approach the winter solstice where we will hit the shortest day of the year. We tend to cozy up inside a little more, and get a little closer with our friends and family. Christmas is around the corner. New Years just right after. There is a spirit in the air this time of year, and […]

Creamy Millet Porridge

Growing up, I was never too crazy about oatmeal and porridge. Perhaps because it was always made quite bland and ended up being weirdly thick and slimy. Only recently has my love for breakfast propelled me to experiment with all different kinds of recipes. This millet porridge is a wonderful alternative that has more of a texture than rolled oats. This recipe was created after having leftover millet from dinner one night. I saw a […]

Homemade Almond Milk

**Update as of 8/31/2022: I no longer recommend drinking nut milks, and instead fully endorse raw milk. I believe animal milks are highly nutritious and have been part of our diets forever. If you insist on drinking nut milks for whatever reason, at the very least, make it yourself! Why is it that we would rather get in our car, drive to the store, and buy pre-packaged and pre-made foods instead of making them at […]

Paleo Apple Almond Bread

This has been my favorite bread recipe yet; I think I can safely say I have mastered it. The basic ingredients stay the same while I play with spices and various wet ingredients. In the summer use shredded zucchini. In the fall, use pumpkin, sweet potato, or squash. Any other time you can use homemade applesauce (which is so far my favorite addition), or banana. Add your choice of nuts and seeds, dried fruit, or […]
