Paleo Pie Crust — easy, flaky, crimps beautifully

Megan Treats, Whole Food Recipes 24 Comments

It was my mission to create the perfect Paleo pastry dough after discovering cassava flour. It’s white flour, after all. And our family hasn’t had real pie crust for about 6 years. Soooo… May and June (and the thought of summer fruits) finally made me do it. This post contains affiliate links. When rhubarb came, it was a reminder that …

Cinnamon Ice Cream~ {Paleo, Primal Raw Dairy, or GAPS}

Megan Treats, Whole Food Recipes 22 Comments

The best piece of pie I ever had was rhubarb. It was topped with homemade cinnamon ice cream. That was in Julian, CA, the town our son is named after, in the year of our marriage, 1996. (Coming up on 20 years!) I’m not that into pie. But this time I was. I’m very into ice cream. It was the …

Megan Breakfast, Treats, Whole Food Recipes 17 Comments

A veggie smoothie never tasted this good. NO fruit. NO green. This one’s bright pink and so. much. fun. Beets are full of fiber and good carbs. They’re excellent for detoxification and for getting the bowels going. They’re great for heart health, high in minerals, and B-complex vitamins.  Beets are low in calories yet provide a gentle yield of energy.  …

Beautiful Rhubarb Sauce

Megan Breakfast, Hors d'oeuvres, Condiments & Sides, Treats, Whole Food Recipes 16 Comments

This new recipe has become my favorite way to enjoy rhubarb. It’s delicious by the spoonful, but it’s also so beautifying and complimentary to any treat as a condiment. Use it in parfaits, on cake or muffins, over ice cream, layered in popsicles, with chia pudding, on bread, waffles etc. It’s the loveliest shade of pink. And the texture and …

Lavender-White Chocolate is a steamer that satisfies- both soothing and exciting with its yum factor. Bringing to the table protein (especially if you are able to choose the raw milk version), good …

Here’s grain-free white bread with nutrition, bread that tastes of challah when made with honey, bread that’s great for sandwiches, or alongside soup. You’ll love how this bread rises suuuper high, ballooning itself in the oven. And you’ll need to shoo away the eager line that forms, those pesky family members who keep asking for one more slice. 😉 Fast. …

Chocolate Eclair Cake~ paleo

Megan Treats 28 Comments

There is only one thing that rivals my love for chocolate ice cream. And that is vanilla custard, either poured over something cakey, or chilled… Top the custard with whipped cream and dark chocolate syrup, and you have the mouthfeel and flavor sensation to beat all others. This “cake” is my copycat of a similar one I saw made without …

Butternut Squash Muffins {Paleo}

Megan Breakfast, Treats, Whole Food Recipes 34 Comments

Don’t you love big muffins: plump, tall, moist and splitting at their seams? Break off a chunk, both crusty and tender. Muffins are my favorite baked good. After almost five years on the GAPS Diet, our family is phasing off. There have been times in that five years that I didn’t expect ever to be able to say that. But …
