Easy Paleo Blueberry Pancakes

These super simple, delicious pancakes are my new favorite Paleo breakfast; they’re about as easy as possible to make and require very few ingredients. To top it all off, everyone in my house likes them (this is no easy feat)! I’m typically not a big fan of sweets, so I was not so sure I was […]

No Mess Paleo Raviolis

In line with yesterday’s post, I present you with these! Although designed with my toddler in mind, these Paleo raviolis are a yummy treat for all ages. All of the sauce is on the inside of the ravioli, making clean up a breeze. I ladle some homemade Paleo pasta sauce over these for myself, and […]

Paleo for Toddlers

Paleo for Toddlers

June 25 , 2015 by Ariel - in Getting Started

I was hesitant to raise my son Paleo when we were about to start solids. I can’t count the times I’ve read some health “expert” state a diet that restricts certain food groups and emphasizes others couldn’t possibly be balanced. Like every new mom, I wanted to be sure he was getting the best possible […]

Mushroom Smoothered Chicken with Carmelized Onions

This AIP-friendly recipe falls in the “comfort food” category for me. The flavor is traditional, so it’s perfect for pleasing a wide range of people; not only did I enjoy this meal (I’ll eat anything), but my toddler couldn’t get enough of it! If you have another preferred method of preparing chicken breasts, go right […]

Avocado Beef Paleo Enchiladas

You may not be able to tell at a glance, but this recipe is extremely simple to make. The majority of the cooking time is not active cooking time; in fact, the sauce is made by just throwing everything in the blender! I anticipate making this for dinner at least every other week because it’s […]

Paleo Pasta with Bolognese Sauce

Yes, you read that right – this is REAL pasta. Sauce aside, this pasta fills a void in my Paleo diet I didn’t think was possible! Although not exactly like wheat-based pasta, this pasta is extremely close in texture. It is essentially everything I’d hoped it would be. As for the sauce, this is one […]

Creamy Paprika Chicken

Now that the holidays are over, it’s time for me to redirect my focus back to eating right! This recipe is so quick, simple, and anything but boring. The sauce provides the sensation of spicy food, but is in no way hot spicy – it’s something you’ll have to try to “get”. I hope this is […]

I’m writing this blog to share what I have learned, and to show that it doesn’t have to be overly expensive, time consuming, or complicated to achieve real physical wellness.
