Megan Main Dishes, Whole Food Recipes 19 Comments

Fresh salmon doesn’t need a lot of loving. 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 and roasted winter squash, simple never tasted so good. This version is great for any delicious weeknight meal. The recipe is suitable for Keto, …

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 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, 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 …

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 …

This post contains affiliate links, with no up-charge to the buyer. Our family can’t believe how much we love this option! Portobello mushrooms provide the best base for a pizza.

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 …
