Recently I got a spiralizer, and let me just say, I love it. Zucchini has been my favorite thing to “spiralize” so far, and I’ve gone a bit crazy with the zucchini noodles (which actually have the name of “zoodles,” I found out). Continue reading
I have to carry lunch to work several days a week right now…so let’s just say I’m getting really creative at packing lunches. Although these recipes have made it on the blog before, I figured since I still use them as my go-to recipes, they were worth sharing a second time: Continue reading

Pumpkin Spice Muffins
This is my version of the simple pumpkin muffins = canned pumpkin + cake mix. Not wanting to spend a fortune on the pre-made box mix, I adapted this recipe for yellow cake mix. I reduced the amount of sugar and added the psyllium husk powder and yummy spices.
10 oz. GF flour blend (I used equal parts buckwheat, ground oats, and cornstarch)
5 oz. coconut palm sugar
12 g. psyllium husk powder
4 t. baking powder
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. allspice
1/4 t. ginger
1/4 t. salt
4 oz. unsalted butter, room temp, OR softened coconut oil (for dairy free)
3 T. grapeseed oil
15 oz. canned pumpkin
Pulse dry ingredients together in a food processor. Cut butter or coconut oil into tablespoons, and add with grapeseed oil to the dry ingredients. Pulse until well combined.
Mix with canned pumpkin in a large bowl. Spoon into muffin tin liners, and bake at 350 degrees F for 20 min., or till toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Makes 18 regular muffins.

A friend of mine recently asked about some family-friendly Paleo recipes for main meals. I don’t cook completely Paleo (which is essentially gluten free, dairy free, legume free, grain free), but I have some favorites that can be tweaked slightly. Here are a few useful Paleo recipe sites:

I want my blog to be a resource for people, so I thought I’d share some of my ideas. These are by no means comprehensive, but for those of you maybe a little lost at sea, it’s a place to start. Continue reading
