Spanakorizo – Greek Spinach “Risotto” With Fennel and Bone Marrow (Keto, AIP, Paleo, Wahls, Whole30)

When most people think of Greek food, they think fried calamari, tzatziki and/or Greek salad. But, truth is, there are tons of traditional Greek recipes that are filled with flavor and incredibly easy to adapt to a grain-free and even dairy-free lifestyle! Greek dishes typically don't use tons of ingredients, but they do utilize a…

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. If you…

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.…
