Kiwi Berry Fruit Salad

Kiwi Berry Fruit Salad

July 4th, 2013 | Recipes, Sides


It is super hot here in Austin, TX!

The other day it was 108 degrees… no kidding.

We are pumped to be heading out to the lake for the 4th.

Woo hoo!

Make a fresh, colorful fruit salad for your 4th of July party or picnic.

It’s super simple and great paired with some cashew “ricotta” cheese.



  • fresh organic blueberries 1-2 small cartons
  • 1 carton fresh organic strawberries (cut into slices)
  • 3-4 kiwis (skin removed and cut into slices)
  • **optional (serve with dairy-free cashew cheese – go HERE for recipe)


Wash all fruit and slice strawberries and kiwis.

Throw all fruit in a bowl and toss.

Serve as is or paired with some delicious cashew cheese.

Spaghetti Squash Puree (GF/DF/Paleo)

Spaghetti Squash Puree (GF/DF/Paleo)

April 17th, 2013 | Recipes, Sides

The idea for this dish comes from a dear friend of mine.

It’s simple and tasty… and it brings something a little different to the table.

It tastes good hot… but I love it cold too!

For some reason, when you puree the spaghetti squash there is a bit more sweetness to it than when you don’t.

It’s yum!

Check it out!



  • 1 spaghetti squash (medium)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper Keep Reading…
Pan Seared Chicken Leg Quarters with Butternut Squash Curry and Cauliflower Rice

Pan Seared Chicken Leg Quarters with Butternut Squash Curry and Cauliflower Rice

March 28th, 2013 | Chicken, Recipes, Sides

This dish is inspired by a recipe I found in the most recent Edible Austin magazine.

I tweaked a few things, used chicken instead of quail, and “paleofied” it.

It was quite delicious!

I loved getting the chicken, squash curry and cauliflower rice all in one bite.  Yum! Keep Reading…

Raw Kale Avocado Salad with Apples (Paleo/GF/DF)

Raw Kale Avocado Salad with Apples (Paleo/GF/DF)

March 21st, 2013 | Recipes, Sides

This is an easy and nutritious salad that is great for picnics or whenever!

It is quick to make and loaded with good stuff.

I used apples for this one, but I have used oranges and different nuts (like walnuts or pistachios) in the past.

Use your imagination and add to it what you like!

You can also add a homemade salad dressing, but it is has enough moisture from the olive oil and avocados to go without.

The trick to getting the kale soft and easier to chew is adding the salt and olive oil and massaging it.

Hope you enjoy!

It’s good to start accumulating some of your favorite paleo recipes and then meal prep starts getting easier.

Less time goes to meal planning and living the paleo/primal lifestyle gets easier… we promise! Keep Reading…

Celery Root Mish-Mash (paleo/GF/DF)

December 21st, 2012 | featured, Recipes, Sides

Celery root (a.k.a celeriac) was introduced to me by a friend of mine and I just love it! It’s an interesting looking thing… brown and kind of ugly (see below). You peel off the brown, outer layer and underneath is a white-fleshed root vegetable that is quite versatile. Try out this simple celery root mish-mash… its delicious!

Celery Root Mish-Mash


  • 3 celery root bulbs
  • 1 small head of garlic or 5-6 garlic cloves (unpeeled)
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh parsley
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • sea salt Keep Reading…

Quick & Easy Veggie Stir-fry (paleo, GF/DF)

December 18th, 2012 | Recipes, Sides

Sometimes we get stuck in a rut with veggie side dish options and just need something new. Recipes don’t have to be fancy. Often times I just throw what veggies I can find in the kitchen together in a skillet and call it good! Try this quick and easy veggie stir fry. Add your own seasonings if you like… or add some chicken or beef to make a complete meal. I think we topped with some ground beef, chunks of avocado and some raw sauerkraut on the side. Yum!!

Cranberry Relish

The Paleo Secret Thanksgiving: Cranberry Relish

November 16th, 2012 | Sides, Thanksgiving

Cranberry relish is always a staple at our Thanksgiving table. Many of the traditional recipes out there are loaded with sugar. This recipe is easy on the sweetness and very simple to make.

You can add to it to include your favorite flavors and adjust it for how many people you need to feed. It’s best to make this multiple days in advance because as it sits all the flavors mix together and it tastes best days later. So… make this easy dish early and mark it off your Thanksgiving cooking “to do” list. Keep Reading…
