Shrimp and Zucchini Noodle Stir Fry


Gingery, sweet, and tangy!  If you enjoy these flavours, you are definitely going to enjoy this delicious stir fry.  This vegetable dense dish is quick and easy to whip together making it perfect to create on a weeknight.  You will spend more time chopping up vegetables than cooking.  This dish is Whole30 compliant and will leave your stomach satisfied.  My 11 year old son absolutely loved it!  I used a vegetable spiralizer to create the zucchini noodles.  Below is a link to the one I own.  I highly recommend purchasing one if you don’t own one.  If you don’t own one, you can still create this dish.  Just julienne the zucchini into pasta like strips.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Blondies

Paleo Chocolate Chip Blondies (Gluten Free, Grain Free)

If you are are looking for something that is sweet (yet healthy) and easy to whip up then these Blondies are for you.  Last night I was craving a warm, out of the oven treat but didn’t want to have to run to the store to gather ingredients.  I looked around in my pantry, threw somethings together, placed it in a baking dish, and this was the result.  Warm, soft, goey Blondies!  Similar in texture to a brownie, these healthy treats are naturally sweetened (no refined sugar!), grain free, gluten free, and packed with protein!  No need to feel guilty if you eat some for breakfast….just ask my husband!  Yep, he totally did that this morning.  😉

Coconut Curry with Cauliflower Rice (Paleo, Vegan options)

Coconut Curry with Cauliflower Rice



Weeknights are busy for my family.  Trying to fit in time to cook something quick, easy, and healthy can be a challenge.  This recipe has become a weekly staple in my home since developing it.  Not only is it easy, delicious, and healthy but it is also cheap to make!

This vegetable dense meal is dairy/grain free, Paleo, and has options to make it Whole30 approved!  And if meat is not your thing, I have also included options in the recipe to make it vegan.

If grains are not an issue for you, feel free to serve it over brown rice or aromatic Basmati or Jasmine rice.  You can also enjoy it as a stew if you wish.

This dish serves 4-6 which means I have leftovers for lunch!  It’s even better the next day!

Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies


Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Warm, straight out of the oven Chocolate Chip Cookies are a personal favorite of mine.  Dark, gooey chocolate…chewy on the inside…I am drooling just thinking about it!  Good thing I just baked a batch of these delicious Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies!

These cookies are perfect for those that need to adhere to a gluten free, grain free, and/or dairy free diet but they will also satisfy those that do not.  They’re also Paleo friendly and just so happen to be vegan!

In the oven they go!

In the oven they go!

They taste delicious straight out of the oven but they remain moist and chewy long after they have cooled off. Pack one in your lunch or have one as a treat at the end of a long day.  Heck, eat one for breakfast if you’d like!  I won’t tell anyone.

Yum!  Yum!  Yum!

Yum! Yum! Yum!

Lemon-Blueberry Muffins


Spring has arrived!

Well, sort of….it doesn’t quite feel like it here in the Midwest but I know beautiful weather, bright tree blossoms, and fragrant flowers are just around the corner.  I was delighted to see a few bulbs breaking through the soil in my back yard the other day.

These muffins are the perfect way to add a little sunshine to your life while we wait for the Spring weather to arrive.  These Lemon-Blueberry Muffins make the perfect breakfast on the go or an afternoon delight!  The lemon perks these muffins right up without over powering them and aides in allowing the blueberry flavor to shine.  Tastes like spring!  These muffins are super moist and you will never believe that they are gluten free, grain free, and dairy free!
