Zoodles Red Curry Bowl with Cod

“Zoodles” Red Curry Bowl with Cod

If you lived with us for a week, you would be served up meals in a bowl not just for dinner, but for breakfast and lunch too.  I'm kind of crazy about the concept of a meal in a bowl.  It's a fun way to present food and layer flavors.  A protein and a green veggie makes it complete. Like ... Read More

Slow Cooker Roasted Roots and Sausage

Here's a new week night meal for you that's made with all fresh ingredients.  This easy to assemble main course was inspired from my Whole30 experience.  I was wanting to create a crock pot recipe that's unfussy, Whole30 compliant, pulled it's flavors from fresh produce, herbs and meat, but didn't fall apart and turn to mush.  Often times slow cooker ...

Creamy Roasted Tomato Soup, dairy and gluten-free, happens to be a perfect match for these these cold dreary days of winter.

Baked Stuffed Apples

Just because I'm whole30'ing it for the month of January, doesn't mean I'm going to pass up dessert on our 40th wedding anniversary.  Forty years of marriage is worth celebrating so I dipped into my "tool box" of grain free, sweetener free, clean eating repertoire and came up with these luscious Baked Stuffed Apples.  After almost a month of no ...

Lentil, Roasted Squash and Walnut Salad

Lentil, Roasted Squash and Walnut Salad

This Lentil, Roasted Squash and Walnut Salad is the salad I dreamt about in the middle of the night when I first realized legumes were a good Whole30 option for vegan/vegetarian people.  Surprisingly, this is the only legume I have eaten on Whole30 since they are most often paired with grain to make a complete protein.  It combines 3 of ...

Chicken Curry Sweet Potato Noodle Bowl

Chicken Curry Sweet Potato “Noodle” Bowl

We are half way through this Whole30 month.  It took me awhile to find my groove in meal planning and cooking.  Finally, I have a comfortable rhythm down for alternating proteins apart from red meat and pork.  After feeling very bloated after some meals and my husband confirming by saying, "this is too much meat!",  I modified Whole30 to better fit ...

Pumpkin Apple Breakfast Cake

Pumpkin Apple Breakfast “Cake”

Okay, okay.  So this isn't your typical cake.  It's kind of a cross between a pudding and a cake.  It's yummy, high in protein, and Whole30 compliant. Two days in to Whole30, and I was craving something bready.  Gluten was disappearing from our table, but we hadn't completely eliminated grain.   I created this Pumpkin Apple Breakfast "Cake" recipe to satisfy ...
