Blueberry Cobbler (Gluten-Free, Paleo, Low Carb)

It’s summer. And to me that means fruit cobblers for dessert. Particularly this blueberry cobbler that’s gluten-free, paleo and low carb. I just prefer a blueberry cobbler to a peach cobbler. Fresh peaches? Definitely. Cooked, warm, mushy peaches? Nah. But blueberries hold up perfectly to the hot oven and the hot termperatures outside. I don’t know why I hate warm peaches but love warm blueberries. There’s just something so good about a blueberry cobbler. They’re even better when topped with coconut cream mixed with maple syrup (highly recommend) or ice cream. This actually would have been insane with ice cream. Dammit I totally should have bought vanilla ice cream. But if you don’t have it either, just use coconut cream. It’s also crazy good. Also, my kids, who are 2 and almost 1 – devoured this. It’s not too sweet as I only use a 1/2 cup of coconut sugar,…

This pistachio keto pudding is insanely delicious. It also happens to be paleo, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and perfect for those late night sugar cravings. Curb your sugar cravings with this keto pudding recipe! Ever since I had Storm, I’ve had a bit more of a sweet tooth. I’ve never really cared much about sweets – gimme chips over chocolate any day – but once I started breastfeeding, I just had sugar cravings. Now, I’m no longer breastfeeding. It was a long, drawn-out saga that I felt really guilty about but after severe tongue and lip ties, lactation consultants, exclusively pumping around the clock, I just couldn’t do it. Not sure how I got off on a tangent about my breastfeeding struggles here. Anyway! So when I was breastfeeding I wanted ALL. THE. FOOD. It was amazing. I ate all day long and loved it. But I also ate my fair…

Five Things People Do Wrong When Going Keto

The ketogenic diet is hugely popular and with good reason; it’s been shown to reduce inflammation, improve depression and anxiety, curb epileptic seizures and help people lose weight. It can be incredibly healing, especially for those with diabetes, mood disorders, Alzheimer’s and gut infections. However, in following along on social media and seeing the huge explosion of this way of eating, I’ve also seen a lot of ways people kind of botch it. I’ve decided to share five things people do wrong when going keto because I’m seeing these mistakes repeatedly. NOT ENOUGH VEGGIES I see so many people avoiding vegetables on keto. Here’s the thing: keto can be a very healthy and well balanced diet. But you know what the backbone of keto is that people don’t realize? VEGETABLES. Veggies should make up the bulk of every ketogenic plate of food. Vegetables are loaded with so many vitamins, minerals…

Paleo Black Forest Cake

This paleo black forest cake would be really excellent for like, a murder themed dinner party. Or a murder mystery party. Or a gory themed Valentine’s Day dinner. I mean, look at it. It’s dramatic and kind of looks like it’s dripping blood. Delicious, right? Seriously though, it’s really good. And it’s really easy to make. Trust me, I’m horrible at baking. So here’s how I did it – I bought boxed cake mix. Never heard of a paleo boxed cake mix? Now you have: Enter Simple Mills. Simple Mills is my new favorite company. This post isn’t sponsored by them, I just love them that much. While their products are sold at Whole Foods, it’s a lot cheaper to buy them at Thrive Market. Thrive Market is basically an online organic, gluten-free and paleo grocery store that sells products for WAY cheaper. By clicking on this link, you can…

Paleo Carrot Cake

I am a terrible baker. I hate following directions and much prefer to do my own thing. Which is why I’m so in love with Simple Mills, a company that makes high quality, paleo, gluten-free baking mixes. This post isn’t sponsored by them, I just honestly love their stuff. Which is how I easily and quickly made this paleo carrot cake. Simple Mills is sold at a ton of grocers these days, mainly Whole Foods. Except, Whole Foods ain’t nicknamed Whole Paycheck for nothing. It’s expensive. Which is why I prefer to order Simple Mills products from Thrive Market. Again, not sponsored. I just like Simple Mills and I like Thrive Market!

A Boho + Gluten-Free First Birthday Party

I LOVE me a good party. I love going to parties, I love throwing parties, I love planning parties. I had so much fun coming up with a concept for Ev’s birthday and landed on a boho + gluten-free first birthday party. I landed on this aestetic for his party in large part due to the fact that my house is already pretty boho so I wouldn’t have to decorate too much. As much as I love a good party, I also enjoy a party that doesn’t require a shit ton of effort. Let’s be honest, a first birthday party is more for than parents and friends. Everett wasn’t aware of the decorations or the food or the cake – he was just loving all the attention he got! So I wasn’t going to go all out with kiddie decorations, which I’m not a huge fan of anyway. I wanted…

High Protein Pumpkin Spice Smoothie (Paleo, Low-Carb, Low-Sugar, Whole30)

You guys. I don’t even like pumpkin. I know – my Uggs should be revoked (and yes I wear Uggs because I live in the effing Mid-Atlantic and our winters are freezing and I want my feet to be warm while simultaneously feel like I’m walking on soft furry pillows). But I loved this smoothie. LOVED. It’s a creamy, delicious treat that feels like you’re having dessert despite the fact that this high protein pumpkin spice smoothie actually has no sugar. It’s also paleo, dairy-free, low-carb and Whole30 safe. It’s the absolute perfect snack. It’s high in protein from my new favorite protein powder, Collagen Fuel. I’ve written about how amazing collagen is before, but here’s a refresher: collagen is the most abundant protein in the body around 25, we produce less and less every year this lead to wrinkles, arthritis, brittle nails, weaker bones, etc it’s amazing for gut…
