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…

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…

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…

Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread With Ghee (Keto, Low-Carb, Paleo)

A while ago, I tried making my own Nutella. I over-roasted the hazelnuts, however, and ended up with a consistency that was too grainy and chalky. I still ate it (of course!) and it wasn't bad, but it wasn't the rich and decadent spread I was looking for. Assuming it was my food processor that…

Middle-Eastern Lamb Meatball Soup With Herbs And Greens (Keto, Low-Carb, Wahls, Whole 30, AIP)

If you've been following me over at Instagram you probably know that I struggle on and off with IBS-like symptoms - in particular indigestion, gas, bloating and cramping. Some days, I can eat all the garlic and brussels sprouts and cheese without feeling anything. And then, sometimes, there's barely anything I can have without bloating…

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…
