Tacos are a perennial family favorite in my house. We always set them up like a buffet so everyone can serve themselves. That means that my sister can skip the onions, my father can turn up the spice, I can sneak a double helping of sauce, and everyone is happy. For a long time, we only made beef tacos but after I was introduced to these Paleo Baja fish tacos, I don’t know why we waited so long to switch it up. I was worried that fish tacos would be hard to make but these come together so quickly and they would be right at home on the menu of your favorite Mexican restaurant!Continue reading
There are plenty of bunless burger recipes out there but what if you are in one of those moods where nothing but the classic burger and bun combo will do? We have got your back with our Paleo burgers on sesame buns. It’s your traditional burger, meaty beef patty, lettuce, tomato, and onion, all on a soft sesame bun. The difference is you won’t find any grains in this bun, just coconut flour! These burgers may take a little effort to put together since you are making the buns yourself, but they are filling and just like the real thing! The buns should be enjoyed soon after coming out of the oven and sliced open once they are cool enough to handle.Continue reading
A smoothie is the perfect summer breakfast because all you need to do is collect the ingredients and blend them, no cooking required.

So whether you’re trying to beat the heat in August or missing the sun in December, this summery smoothie is just what you are looking for.Continue reading
I lived on this island off the Southern coast of China for 3 months, and I survived in large part on sweet potatoes (in addition to salted duck eggs, roasted duck, and fresh fish!).
One of the things that always bothered me when living in China was I couldn’t tell what type of sweet potato I was buying. My friend, who is living in Okinawa, expressed the same problem.
So, when we discussed our favorite types (I know, it’s the sort of geeky conversation foodies indulge in!), we’d resort to laborious descriptions of what the skin looked like, what color the flesh was, how it tasted, etc.
So, when I spotted these 5 varieties of sweet potatoes in Whole Foods the other day, I decided to document them with photographs and notes!
I love vanilla ice cream. My sister and my friends relentlessly tease me for being boring but the truth is that I love the simplicity of vanilla. I don’t want any of this mint chocolate oreo fudge surprise, that’s too much for me. However, by the time the end of the summer rolls around, even I am starting to get board of plain vanilla. That’s where our Paleo raspberry swirl ice cream comes in. This three ingredient ice cream is the perfect middle ground between overly sweet and complicated flavors and basic vanilla. With creamy coconut and a tart raspberry swirl, this ice cream strikes the right balance between simplicity and excitement. Just be sure you have someone on hand to share it with or you might be tempted to eat the whole batch yourself!Continue reading
Corned beef and cabbage is the classic Sunday dinner, the kind of thing Irish grandmothers make to feed a crowd. If it’s done right, it is hearty and satisfying. If it’s done wrong, it’s nothing but tough meat and mushy veggies. So if you have only had the latter, give the dish a second chance. Our Instant Pot Paleo corned beef and cabbage is a quicker, healthier take on the classic dish. We’ve used the pressure cooker to cut the cook-time dramatically, and replaced the empty carbs from white potatoes with tender sweet potatoes.Continue reading
