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…

Low-Carb Parmesan Truffle Fries (Low-Carb, Keto, Vegetarian)

I love me some truffle fries or any variation of them, so to discover that there was a way I could enjoy them on a low-carb diet made me so very happy! The secret? Jiacama root! While technically a tuber, jicama is low in carbs (11g in a cup, about half of which is fiber)…

Baked Jicama Fries with Autumn Spices (Paleo, Vegan, Low-Carb, Keto, Wahls)

After almost two years of practically no GI issues (I credit Paleo for that), last month I started experiencing atypical bloating and pain in the abdomen. I upped the amount of probiotics (sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha) I was consuming, but still things didn't really feel right. So, I took a closer look at my diet and…
