Protein Freezer Fudge 2 Ways: Crunchy Peanut & Vanilla Bean (Keto, Low-Carb, Paleo, Dairy-Free)

For a while now I've been working a less-crumbly, lower-carb version of bulletproof bars that I could grab on busy mornings, or use as a "bridge" snack between lunch and dinner. I see many keto folks fear protein or opt for pure "fatbombs" as their go-to snack, but after over a year of following a ketogenic…

Pear Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough (Paleo, Low-Carb, Raw, Vegan)

I'm not much of a baker (mainly because I hate following rules and baking really is a science based on precision) but sometimes I just really crave a cookie. A cookie that is sweet - but not too sweet! - and just a touch spicy. These low-carb cookie dough bites are made in five minutes and…

Olive Oil Granola with Black Sesame Seeds, Cardamom and Black Pepper (Keto, Low-Carb)

I love, love cardamom and cannot find enough uses for it. I use it in my nut butters, my fat bombs, my meat stews, my lamb patties, my homemade white chocolate and my bulletproof coffee, just to name a few. And I'm sure that most of the great chefs would agree that cardamom is one of…

Grit & Healing’s Za’atar Seasoning Blend (Low-FODMAP, Nightshade-Free, Keto)

Are you sensitive to nightshades and/or FODMAPS? Interested in experimenting more with Mediterranean flavors? Or just tired of serving the same old dishes using the same old spices? Enter Za'atar, or Zaatar (or Zhatar)! While za'atar comes in many forms, it is typically a blend of savory dried herbs like oregano, marjoram or thyme, and cooling spices…

Arugula Salad With Strawberries and Shaved Fennel (Keto, AIP, Wahls, Low-Carb, Paleo, Nightshade-Free)

When I went nightshade-free in September of last year following the recommendation of my Ayurvedic doctor, my first reaction was: "What on earth will I add to salads??" I had to get creative, and quick. This arugula-chicken salad was one of the first combos I tried, and I loved it so much that it's since…

Greek Dandelion Salad – “Horta” (Keto, Low-Carb, AIP, Wahls, Paleo, Vegan, Whole30)

Greek food is all about simple, fresh ingredients that aren’t fussy, expensive or hard to come by. You’ll rarely see a Greek dish use more than a couple of spices, often relying on fresh herbs, lemon juice and olive oil for flavor. This dandelion salad is the epitome of Greek simplicity, it’s incredibly easy to…

Brussel Sprouts Sautéed in Garlic, Ginger and Ghee (Keto, Whole30, AIP, Wahls)

This is an easy, fragrant side-dish that goes wonderfully with chicken, pork, eggs AND fish, and is also delicious cold as part of a scrumptious keto or paleo bowl. I find the Brussels sprouts are some of the most flavorful veggies when roasted, and they can transform tremendously based on the space profile used. Many Brussels…
