MEDITERRANEAN SPINACH SALAD
A simple, nutritious and delicious girl on the go style meal. This salad takes all of our favorite bits of Mediterranean cooking and pulls them together in a very satisfying salad.
CAULIFLOWER BACON BISCUITS
These are delicious and need we say more!! Cauliflower, bacon, and cheese all in grain free delicious handheld biscuit. We dare you to only eat one.
BUTTERNUT SQUASH TACOS
This is a great option for Meatless Monday (or Taco Tuesday) or any day really! We love the rich and creamy taste of butternut squash. Packed full of nutrients, this meal is a very quick and healthy spin on Mexican food.
BACON WRAPPED BUTTERNUT SQUASH
Wrapping up tasty butternut squash cube in bacon is a delicious way to enjoy this fall staple as an appetizer. What's not to love about this simple dish? We've found a great combination of spice powders - garlic, chili, and paprika - that lend tremendous flavor to this warm appetizer.
AUTUMN HARVEST SALAD
This salad is inspired by one of Meg’s favorite healthy go-to restaurants, True Life Kitchen (BTW- if you live near one and haven’t yet tried it – it’s a must do!). Packed with seasonal veggies, pomegranate seeds, and antioxidant-filled dried mulberries, this nutrient superstar of a salad is the perfect holiday starter. Add salmon or chicken to increase the protein!
CREAMY CAULIFLOWER SOUP
There's just so much to say YES to about this soup. To name just a few of the benefits of eating cauliflower: helps reduce cancer risk, reduces inflammation, decreases risk of heart disease, huge doses of vitamins C and K, improves digestion and helps balance hormones and detox the body. Then, you add the benefits of the chicken broth or bone broth, and this is a perfect creamy soup to make to truly nourish your body! We also love the topping of raw cashews on top for a little crunch to make the creaminess really shine through in this soup.
CREAMY BROCCOLI, KALE, AND WHITE BEAN SOUP
This tasty creamy soup is thickened with yogurt, rather than cream, which helps add probiotics and a nice tang to this yummy meal in a bowl! We love the combo of broccoli and white beans here, and you'll see why once you take that first taste!
CRUNCHY THAI CHICKEN SALAD
You have to try this salad to believe how great it is! If you love Asian chicken salads, you will love this fresh creation. Free of processed sugar and less than desirable oils, you will feel full of energy after this power burst of flavor and nutrients. You can always omit the chicken or add any other protein in its place. The recipe was adapted and modified slightly from the Against All Grain Blog. This salad tastes best if you let it sit for at least an hour prior to serving, make sure you allot for that time when putting this together. This also makes a HUGE salad, so even though there's a lot of slicing and shredding, know you'll have plenty of this salad to eat and enjoy!
CHEWY GRAIN FREE FLAT BREAD
This is a great and simple recipe to whip up some chewy and delicious flat bread. These are perfect for BBQ chicken wraps, mini pizzas, or just about anything else you enjoy on bread. These store well in the fridge and just need to be reheated quickly to enjoy. Recipe was adapted from Paleo Newbie grain free tortillas.
