Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? We certainly do, especially our boys. These light-as-souffle pancakes work just as well for breakfast as they did for our dinner last week. My older son helped me mix the batter, and then enjoyed his pancakes covered in maple syrup, but my younger son […]

 

Salmon in Almond Cream Sauce

This recipe is adapted from “The Dairy-Free Kitchen” by Ashley Adams. I highly recommend this cookbook for anyone with a dairy allergy. The original recipe called for chicken but we used some lovely Arctic Char instead (we consider Salmon and Arctic Char interchangeable in recipes, and purchase whichever is the […]

 

Pork Belly with Green Beans

We’ve cooked hundreds of meals with bacon, but this was our first time using Pork Belly in a recipe at home. We followed the recipe from “Japan: The Cookbook” to the letter, and while we enjoyed the results, we also learned a few tips that will improve upon the original […]

Georgian Pecan-Crusted Trout

Toasting the pecans before rolling the trout fillets brings out a deeper flavor in the nuts, which partners really nicely with the lightly seasoned almond flour breading. The end result is surprisingly light and flavorful. We found this recipe in “Paleo Comfort Foods” by Julie & Charles Mayfield and we […]

 

Vegan Chia Pudding

We found a recipe for Chia Pudding in “Tu Casa Mi Casa” that used maple syrup to sweeten and vanilla bean to season. We opted for lower-cost and more accessible vanilla extract, and homemade date paste for natural sweetness. My husband prepared the pudding at night; in the morning, I […]

 

Braised Chicken and Sweet Potatoes

I pulled a recipe for chicken thighs with sweet potatoes and prunes out of an issue of Real Simple last fall; it sounded delicious. We ad libbed to create Whole Life Challenge-compliant Braised Chicken and Sweet Potatoes by replacing prunes and honey with dates and farmer’s market-fresh plums and pluots. […]

 

Vegan Carrot Cake Bread

We adapted this recipe from a Paleo Carrot Cake Bread recipe we found from Real Food with Jessica. With a few minor adjustments, we created a vegan and sugar free version that worked great for pre-workout or mid-morning snacks.
