Crazy Good Chicken!~ Maple Rosemary Mustard … 10 MINUTE PREP TIME! for guests or your family (Paleo)

Megan Main Dishes, Whole Food Recipes 20 Comments

When your husband takes his first bite of dinner and says, “Mmmmmmm” for such a long time that you feel embarrassed. That’s this recipe. The recipe that after your own family has drowned you in praise, you know you can also make it for guests because it’s that good. I love finding those recipes, to fall back on for all …

Lemon-Ginger Salmon {Paleo, GAPS, AIP}

Megan Main Dishes, Whole Food Recipes 19 Comments

Fresh salmon doesn’t need a lot of lovin’. It’s so good with a simple preparation: lots of fat (my mom always used a generous amount of olive oil), sea salt and garlic. Served with sauteed spinach or a garden-ripened tomato salad, simplicity never tasted so good. In the past few years we’ve had a friend give us salmon who fishes …

Carrot and Pork Pie

CARROT AND PORK PIE ~ {Paleo & GAPS, non-dairy}

Megan Main Dishes, Whole Food Recipes 16 Comments

Savory pies are always special. When the crust/cobbler top is really just a high-protein veggie puree, one that’s super inexpensive, an easy and affordable weeknight meal is born. Add a simple green salad and this dinner will feed 4 people, all for about $10, with lots of leftovers for a second meal. And, like I said, my family loves when …

SPAGHETTI SQUASH ROUND-UP~ 20 RECIPES FOR THE SEASON & How Best to Bake Them

Megan Main Dishes, Whole Food Recipes 19 Comments

Spaghetti squash took the world by noodle a few years back and we’ve never been the same since. Whether we’re Paleo, low-carb, AIP, GAPS, gluten-free or gourmet, there’s a huge appeal to eating pasta that isn’t pasta. We get all of the benefit that any veggie noodle provides; but this one magically appears just by baking the vegetable, no fancy …

No-Tomato Sauce

No-Tomato Sauce, served with Braised Cabbage Noodles & Turkey Meatballs~ nightshade-free

Megan Main Dishes, Whole Food Recipes 18 Comments

This is one of those casual meals that makes everyone full and happy. The no-tomato sauce is something I decided to try recently, while taking a break from nightshades. Nightshades, as you may already know, are a category of produce than can exacerbate inflammation. So often times, those of us with autoimmune conditions, especially those following the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP …

I have always liked to eat salsa like soup, with a spoon- and lots of it.  Here are three fruit and veggie summer salsas that provide super exciting condiment options. Adding one of these salsas to any grilled, sauteed or roasted meat makes an instantly special meal. We oohed and awed our way through all of these meals pictured: sauteed …

Rosemary Honey Chicken

Rosemary-Honey Chicken with Smashed Cauliflower {Paleo, GAPS}

Megan Hors d'oeuvres, Condiments & Sides, Main Dishes, Whole Food Recipes 15 Comments

Here’s a family favorite. My husband says this is the best cauliflower he’s ever had. We all really like Smashed Cauliflower better than mashed cauliflower. Mashed cauli is a fun Paleo or GAPS alternative to mashed potatoes, a boon for many of us. But smashed cauli is waaay yummier, in our estimation. You get a better texture, and a better …

My upcoming cookbook EAT BEAUTIFUL: Grain-free, Sugar-free and Loving It is due out the end of June! {Excited!!} And in that cookbook I share with you my grain-free pizza dough, which is one we use in our gut-healing/Paleo cafes with the pizzas we make. It doesn't use coconut flour or almond flour but utilizes a new grain-free baking technique that I'm chomping at the bit to share. {Excited!!} That being said, for all the grain and gluten-free pizza crust options that exist, our family can't believe how much we love this option! Portobello mushrooms provide the best base for a pizza. We like this option every bit as much as a bread-y take on the classic Italian treat.

HUMBLE SALMON PATTIES~ Casual food that's high in protein and calcium.

HUMBLE SALMON PATTIES- {egg-free, grain-free}

Megan Hors d'oeuvres, Condiments & Sides, Main Dishes 22 Comments

Salmon patties are a bit different than salmon cakes, in my mind. Salmon cakes are made from fresh salmon, fried till crispy and served with aioli. They are served in French restaurants or made at home, often dipped in bread crumbs, flour or cornstarch before frying. Salmon patties are something my Granny made. They are humble, good cold and feature …
