A collection of Paleo sides dishes perfect for Thanksgiving, or any holiday for that matter! I spent the past three years filling up the bulk of my holiday dinner plates with side dishes.  When you eat vegetarian or vegan, that just somehow seems to be inevitable.  And even though turkey is making its way onto my [...]


A simple tutorial on how to make mashed cauliflower using frozen cauliflower.  This comforting side dish is completely vegan, gluten-free, nightshade-free, Paleo, and AIP-friendly! Cauliflower is one of those crazy versatile foods that I actually severely dislike on its own.  The taste of it just plain does nothing for me.  And while I enjoy it [...]


Happy Monday, my dear friends!  I hope your weekend was as great as mine.  We are now rolling into the final five-day work week of November, and my holiday spirit is in full gear.  It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away, but I am more than looking forward to [...]


Perfectly Crispy Collards and Kale make for the most delicious healthy side.  Serve them alongside your favorite protein and roasted veggies! This girl has come a long ways from her frozen Lean Cuisine, 100-calorie pack, fruit snack eating days. Not that there is anything wrong with those every now and then or in moderation, but [...]


Parsnip "Rice" with Fresh Thyme & Sage is a nutty, flavorful substitute to rice.  Serve with your favorite protein and additional sides for a cozy fall dinner or a holiday meal.

Happy Monday, y'all!  I am on my way back to Omaha this morning, but for right now let's recap the Fourth of July weekend.  I had an amazing, productive, fun, and relaxing weekend.  I hope yours was just as great! Fourth of July Weekend Happenings I had Friday off from work, but it still started [...]


Normally I am ecstatic when Friday rolls around.  But not this Friday!  This Friday is the last full day of my Colorado vacation.  As you can imagine, I am a bit disappointed about this.  It has been an amazing week so far, and I do not want it to end... at all.  Such is life, [...]


Memorial Day is only three days away!  In celebration of the "unofficial" kick-off to summer, I am sharing three creative ways to top your crackers this entertaining season.  An added bonus is the fact that all three ideas just so happen to be vegetarian and gluten-free! The simplicity of cheese and crackers is good.  But that [...]
