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…

Double Chocolate Keto Brownies with Bittersweet Ganache (Keto, Low-Carb, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Paleo)

Let's talk brownies for a second. Keto brownies specifically. For months I've been looking for a keto brownie that can pass as the real thing - that's moist, heavy, dense and truly decadent. Truth is, keto baking is hard, especially if we're talking dairy-free as well. Many recipes that don't use dairy will use avocado,…

Greek Chicken Soup – “Kotosoupa Avgolemono” (Keto, Low-Carb, Paleo, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free)

One of my favorite quick meals to make from leftover roast chicken, is Greek chicken soup (Kotosoupa Avgolemono). It's hearty, simple and so delicious, and it's unlike any chicken soup you've tried before! It's a staple of the Greek diet and it's one of my top comfort foods, a dish that transports me back to the…

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…
