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

I recently had to accept the sad truth that super low-carb fat bombs (as promoted in the keto community) do very little for my hunger or cravings, as fat by itself is not very filling a food. And, while some folks like to argue that "fat doesn't make you fat" and that calories don't matter,…

Spinach Salad with Persimmon, Pomegranate and Goat Cheese (Low-Carb, Vegetarian, Grain-Free)

This is the perfect fall salad! The homemade pomegranate vinaigrette coats the baby spinach, sweet pomegranates, salty goat cheese and pumpkin seeds like a dream! 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…

Tahini Hot Cocoa (Paleo, Keto, Low-Carb, Dairy-Free, Wahls)

Tahini has pretty much been my main obsessions for the past year. Interestingly, while I grew up in a country where tahini is a staple (Greece), I rarely ate it growing up. It's not that I didn't like it, I just didn't know what to do with it. Greeks usually slather it on bread or cookies, which…

Purple Cauliflower Soup with Bone Marrow and Poached Eggs (Keto, Paleo, Low-Carb, Dairy-Free)

While I love preparing my own meals (and controlling exactly what goes into them!), I don't like overcomplicating things or spending hours every day in the kitchen. I am a picky eater, however, so I would never compromise flavor for convenience. My meals need to be fast, easy, good for me AND delicious at the same time.…

Anti-Inflammatory Egg Scramble with Bone Marrow (Keto, Paleo, Low-Carb)

This quick meal combines three of my favorite things in life: eggs, turmeric and bone marrow! I struggle a lot with inflammation, particularly in the brain, and when things get "heated", turmeric and bone marrow are two of the first things I start craving (both foods are anti-inflammatory). Beyond that though, roasted bone marrow is…
