Fresh cranberry sauce made with only 4 ingredients, no sugar.
I’ve had cranberry sauce on my mind. So I researched cranberry sauce recipes, and found that most have anywhere from ¼ to 1 ¾ cups of sugar. I like a tart cranberry sauce, one that almost makes my mouth pucker, so I developed this stevia and fruit-sweetened cranberry sauce. While it’s nicely tart, the cherries and orange juice make it quite sweet too.
This is a naturally sweetened lower-glycemic cranberry relish recipe, […]

Use vegan Pumpkin Whipped Cream on gluten free pancakes, muffins and cupcakes.
This luscious vegan spread is made from coconut cream. The kind that comes in the can. A dairy-free frosting that’s quick and easy to make? Yes! And just for fall, I have made it pumpkin flavored, though you can thank Marla at familyfreshcooking.com for that, as it was her idea.
I have been enamored with vegan frostings and toppings made from coconut cream for some time, and have a recipe […]

Here’s a healthy paleo tart crust made from pecans, egg and coconut flour –gluten free, of course!
This quick and easy gluten free tart crust holds together very well and has a wonderfully nutty flavor.
The first few times I made this high protein, paleo tart crust, I had it with apple filling. I think it would be even better with the pumpkin pie filling recipe in The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. Feel free to experiment and fill this tart crust with […]

Paleo Honey Cake made with high protein almond flour for your High Holiday celebrations.
Honey Cake, also known as Lebkuchen, is a traditional Jewish dessert eaten during Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year); my family sometimes serves it during Yom Kippur Break Fast as well since it is a warming, comforting food. Traditionally, we eat honey during the High Holidays as this ritual sets the tone for a sweet new year. It is common to dip apples in honey at the […]

If your garden is overflowing with fresh basil, I have the perfect recipe for you.
We planted more than ten little basil plants earlier this year and now my garden is overgrown with luscious green goodness. Since I have an entire bed of basil, I am of course, on the lookout for basil recipes.
When I looked back in my files, I found this one by Charlie Palmer. This recipe is not “inspired by” his, it is my version of his. If […]

Mint Chip Protein Shake, full of hemp seeds and kale to power you through the day.
I love a good protein shake. I don’t love eating a lot of protein sans vegetables or fruit. This shake solves that issue with a healthy handful of kale. Yes, you heard me, kale.
I’ve had this gluten free, dairy free protein shake for breakfast the last three days in a row. I used kale that I picked from my garden. Starting the day off with […]

Low carb gluten free kelp noodles with sesame sauce make the perfect Paleo treat.
Back in the 1990’s, before I was gluten free, I ordered my fair share of sesame noodles from greasy Chinese restaurants. That was when I lived in New York City. Even though it’s been a long time since I’ve eaten in a Chinese restaurant, that hankering for a good gluten free sesame noodle recipe has never gone away, so I’m happy to have created this one after […]

Easy Vanilla Fig Bars made with dried figs, shredded coconut and almonds –gluten free, Paleo, Primal, delicious.
I’ve been working on various power bar recipes lately as I need some easy to pack snacks for an upcoming adventure. My husband and I are planning on climbing a 14’er (that would be a 14,000 foot mountain) this summer and of course I want to make sure we have the proper nourishment. These bars will work well for the two of us given […]

Gluten free, grain free raspberry streusel bars, made with high protein almond flour, lightly sweetened with xylitol.
This recipe for vegan raspberry streusel bars is based on one by Brittany at Real Sustenance. Ever since she posted her delicious looking recipe last year during the holidays I’ve been wanting to make it.
I adjusted her recipe by removing the sweetener from the crust and by increasing the amount of high protein items in the streusel so the topping would be a bit […]

With only four ingredients, this simple gluten free dessert recipe will wow your Passover or Easter guests. These primal macaroons are made of coconut, egg whites, honey and salt, making them an optimal Paleo cookie recipe. They’ll be devoured within minutes!
Rather than shredded coconut, I used flaked coconut as I wanted to try something different, and I thought it would look pretty and brown nicely.

Paleo Breakfast Bread makes a great grain free treat for brunch or a quick breakfast on rushed weekday mornings.
I made this easy gluten free bread recipe on camera last month (which you can view below) for FOX31 and had a blast with host Joana Canals. I was surprised to find myself on TV talking about the Paleo Diet. It seems that this way of eating is gaining mainstream awareness.

Creamy dairy free soup made with superfood cauliflower to warm you up on a cold night.
Soup is good food. Especially healthy soup made with a mere five ingredients.
This quick and easy Roasted Cauliflower soup recipe is one that I found in a recent issue of Bon Appetit. Except their recipe had butter and heavy cream; I’ve de-Paula Deened this recipe so that it is the pure delicious essence of a vegetable without all kinds of unnecessary other ingredients […]

These rich and moist coconut bars are made of not one, but three different forms of scrumptiously healthy coconut, including shredded coconut, coconut oil and coconut milk in their ingredients list.
I have Shirley at Gluten Free Easily to thank for this recipe as it is based upon her famous gluten free Crustless Coconut Pie. I’m a big fan of Shirley’s crustless pie recipes. They’re perfect […]

Homemade and dairy free Peppermint Hot Chocolate to keep you warm and cozy on a cold winter’s night.
Peppermint Hot Chocolate is easy to make, and far better than the instant hot chocolate that comes in a package, which is loaded with sugar and definitely not dairy free. Additionally, I find this soothing and healthy beverage to be a great substitute for all of the peppermint candy floating around this time of year.
I make this dairy free hot chocolate with coconut […]
