Breakfast

We love eggs! Plus other delicious options.

Pear Blackberry Muffins

The batter recipe from “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.” is so versatile; after using it for the Pumpkin Spice Muffins, I decided to use it as a base for a new variety that leveraged pears, another wonderful fall fruit. I had a vision in my mind of how wonderful […]

 

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

It’s October, and that means Pumpkin Spice everything! I was craving something sweet and spicy, and did a little happy dance when I saw a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Superhero Muffins in my favorite cookbook “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow“. I made a few changes to keep these yummy […]

 

Savory Paleo Vegetable Quiche

We served this easy quiche for dinner alongside a fresh salad, but you could just as easily serve it for breakfast or lunch. You can change it up by mixing and matching any veggies that you have on hand – asparagus instead of broccoli, for example. We adapted this recipe […]

 

Cinnamon Coffee Cake (Paleo)

Another winning Paleo offering based on a recipe from “The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook” by Elana Amsterdam. For the past few years, I’ve moved away from sweetening my coffee; instead, I sprinkle cinnamon over the top of a steaming mug of black coffee in the morning. Cinnamon has a sweet […]

 

Sweet Potato Pancakes

My boys love when we make pancakes for breakfast on the weekends. Of course, they’re looking forward to maple syrup and hoping for chocolate chips. As their parents, we’re looking forward to sneaking in some healthy veggies into their morning meal. This recipe comes from “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat […]

 

Apricot Bars

We’re constantly on the lookout for better snack options. My husband and I both enjoy something a bit sweet mid-afternoon or after dinner. Since realizing that processed sugar upsets my stomach and drains my husband of his energy, we’ve opted for natural sweeteners like date past and applesauce, with the […]

 

Smoked Salmon Tart with New Potato, Egg, and Dill Salad

I’m loving this little cookbook I found a few months ago, “The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook“. All the recipes use almond flour, and are gluten-free. My husband prepared the Smoked Salmon Tart with a Herb Tart Crust, and I paired it with an original salad of with new potatoes, caraway, […]

 

Apple and Mixed Berry Blintzes

I am so excited that this recipe turned out as well as it did. I had my nephew specifically in mind while developing it, since like me, he has to avoid dairy and wheat. Blintzes were one of my favorite dishes from childhood; I loved eating them covered in applesauce. […]

 

Spiced Almond Oatmeal

This recipes comes from Alice Hart’s “Vegetarian” cookbook; she drizzles maple syrup over the top but we kept our version naturally sweetened with dates and banana slices. She suggests that the oats can be served raw, but we prefer a hot breakfast. If you don’t have cinnamon sticks, just add […]
