Chinese Cashew Chicken

This recipe is amazing! I love Chinese food but try to avoid it because of the MSG and soy products. This recipe does not have MSG, soy or gluten in it and you can make it strictly paleo. The flavor of the sauce is divine and worth the time it takes to prepare this by scratch. I found this recipe from WholeKitchenSink.com, but modified it to what I had in the kitchen. She has lots of great recipes on her…

Paleo Reese’s Cup

Craving something chocolaty and sweet, but don’t care for all the extra additives? Try out my Vegan “Reese’s Cup” recipe. Feel free to be creative and add in additional things like pre-soaked raw almonds, or pre-soaked raw pecans. Or if you’re looking for something to sweeten it up more, maybe add in some fresh berries or sliced bananas. Ingredients: 1/3 Cup Coconut Oil 1/2 Cup Almond Butter (or any nut butter) 3 TBS Maple Syrup 1/4 Cup Cacao Powder Optional-…

Vegan Monkfruit Frosting

This dairy free frosting is super easy to make and taste great! I’ve tried dozens of different dairy free frosting recipes out there, but wasn’t really excited until I came across this one. I used powdered monkfruit sweetener, which tastes like sugar but has zero carbs or calories in it. It is zero glycemic, which means it will not raise your sugar levels. I found this at Whole Foods, but you can purchase online as well. Ingredients: 1 cup powdered…

Paleo Cereal

This is my favorite paleo cereal recipe! It’s loaded in raw nutrition and fiber, which makes it great for the digestive system. You can be creative and add your own spin on this. In the beginning I felt the need to add in maple syrup for a touch a sweetness, but now I don’t feel that need at all. I find that adding in fruit or raisins is all the sweetness I need. But if you feel that this recipe…

Paleo Guacamole & Chips

This recipe was inspired by one of my favorite Mexican joints in Hoboken, NJ called Charritos. They would make you fresh guacamole at your table! You were able to tell them how you liked it. I’m not a fan of parsley, so I purposely leave it out my guacamole. BUT if you like it, go for it. LOL There are really no exact measurements for guacamole. It’s more of a matter of what you like. So adjust the ingredients for…

Skinny Mexican Pizza (gluten free)

I found this recipe from Yummly.com and it’s REALLY good! If you’re avoiding dairy products, this would still be good without the cheese. This isn’t 100% Paleo, but for me it works. Ingredients: 8 large Gluten Free Tortillas (I used La Tortilla Factory from The Fresh Market) 2 14.5 oz cans organic refried black beans (I found this at The Fresh Market) 2 tsp paprika 2 tsp ground cumin ¼ tsp to 2 tsp cayenne pepper (I used 2 tsp)…

Tsoureki Bread (Gluten & Dairy Free)

My good friends are Greek and we were invited to their house to celebrate Orthodox Easter. I wanted to bring something traditional with us and one of the first things to pop up was Tsoureki Bread. My friend and I both try to be as gluten and dairy free as possible, so I adjusted the ingredients as needed. The inspiration for my recipe came from a website called Ful-Filled. Yeast: 1 package instant yeast (about 2 ¼ tsp. Gluten free)…

Chicken Caesar Spaghetti Squash Casserole (Dairy & Gluten Free)

I love this casserole recipe from Little Bits of Real Food & Real Talk. I altered the recipe a bit by making my own Dairy Free Caesar Dressing. It’s very easy to make and you can cut the calories down by 955 calories if you use chicken broth versus olive oil! I like to pre-cook a whole organic chicken in my crock-pot and use the broth from that for the Caesar Dressing. And then I shred the chicken for the…

Lemon Citronette Salad

This salad was inspired by El Camino’s Restaurant. I ordered an amazing kale/arugula salad from there the other night and had to find out how to recreate it. I highly recommend making the dressing from scratch. It’s super easy to do and gives the kale/arugula the perfect flavor. Dairy Free Dressing Ingredients: 1 Tbsp minced shallot 1-2 minced garlic cloves 1 Tbsp lemon juice 1 Tbsp lime juice 1 Tbsp honey 1 Tbsp Champagne vinegar 2 tsp Dijon mustard 1/2…
