Coconut-Almond ‘Raffaello’ Truffles (Keto, Paleo, AIP, Wahls)

Growing up in Western Europe, Raffaello bonbons where among my all time favorite treats! If you've never heard of them, the original confections are spherical wafers filled with a white milk cream and white blanched almonds. They are decadently creamy, covered in shredded coconut and they are, like, the best thing ever! Because of the processed…

Roasted Coconut-Cauliflower Breakfast Bowl (Keto, Paleo, Low-Carb)

Full disclosure, I had trouble naming this dish. In my initial Instagram post I called it "noatmeal" (i.e., fake oatmeal) because that's what it felt like to me, but then I realized most people probably associate oatmeal with warm and creamy, whereas this recipe is more on the dry, nutty and complex side.

Fatty Coconut Energy Balls Two-Ways (Low-Carb, Dairy-Free, Paleo)

It is a great salad to serve with your Thanksgiving dinner as well, or to eat as a quick lunch, like I did. For the cheese, I used Humboldt Fog,…

Super-Quick Zucchini Zoodles with Oysters and Spinach (Keto, AIP, Low-Carb, Paleo)

Zoodles (=zucchini noodles) are all the rage these days! Now, I wanna make it clear that - no matter what some people say! - I don't think they're a worthy alternative to pasta (it's a texture thing). But, they're wonderful in their own right and a terrific low-carb, paleo-friendly choice for a side dish or main meal.…

Chocolate-Hemp Protein Waffles with Probiotic Coconut Yogurt and Persimmon (Keto, Low-Carb, Paleo, Dairy-Free)

I've been doing some pretty intense fasts lately to reset my body and bring inflammation down, and they've been doing wonders for my brain function and energy levels. But, they've also meant that I've been feeling a little more deprived than usual. So this morning, I decided to make a low-carb treat to fuel up…
