Beef Chili 3 Ways | PALEO, Whole30, Keto

This oldie but goodie has been on constant rotation in our house for almost 6 years now.  It's as old as my blog!  Updating with new pictures, and stovetop and Instant Pot versions for those nights when you need a quick meal & forgot to prep the slow cooker.  Enjoy!

Bacon & Asparagus Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust | PALEO, Whole30, Keto

Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles | PALEO, Keto, Vegan

What do Easter, Halloween, and my favorite Dairy Queen Blizzard have in common?  Chocolate peanut butter candies:  aka Reese's.

It's been a long while since I've had a Dairy Queen Blizzard, but I've definitely gone for an Easter chocolate peanut butter egg just about every year when they hit the shelves!  They're always worth it to me, but a healthy version that tastes even better?  With good quality ingredients?  SIGN ME UP.

Teriyaki Chicken & Vegetable Rice Bowls | PALEO, Keto, Whole30

You guys know I'm all about the flavor over here, and I love me some good healthy takeout-style meals, but I'm also all about dishes that don't take 7 days & 7 nights to make and clean up.

Teriyaki Chicken Bowls sound simple until you think about it for a second... scratch-made sauce, rice, veggies, chicken.. it's a lot of components.

But, I promise you, I have made the process SO SIMPLE.  With zero flavor lacking!

Chocolate Chip Coconut Baked Oatmeal | Gluten Free, Dairy Free

Oatmeal... who's on board?  

I've been eating "Paleo" (no gluten, grains, refined sugar, legumes, dairy, soy) for several years now - since I met my now husband who introduced me to it!

Of course I go off course here and there.  Sometimes that's when we eat out, visit my parents (you can't not eat candy when you visit home right?), just feel like a donut, or when the holidays are here.  I'm not a robot and can't eat the same things every day...

But when I'm back to "my usual" it typically consists of nutrient dense foods - meat, eggs, veggies, nuts, other healthy fats, some fruit.  It's what makes me feel my best.

Over the years though, as I've played around with rounds of Whole30 and going on & off track here and there, I've realized which things I can add back into my diet with not much difference in the way I feel.
