Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler (Paleo, Gluten-Free)

This pumpkin pecan cobbler is paleo, gluten-free, totally delicious and perfect for fall! I have a confession to make: I kind of hate pumpkin. I don’t like pumpkin pie. I don’t drink pumpkin spice lattes. And I don’t add pumpkin to my daily smoothie once August 15th rolls around and the cans show up in Whole Foods. But every year I’m determined to make a pumpkin dessert that I actually enjoy consuming. This might be that. First, mix your pumpkin, sugar and eggs together. For this round I made pumpkin bars (see below), but if you’re just doing cobbler, omit flour. Spread it on the bottom of a parchment lined pan. Melt the butter, sugar and pecans. Top the pumpkin with the pecans and bake! Top with ice cream! I looove pecans so I figured adding some caramelized pecans on top wouldn’t hurt. Bonus: they totally made this dish. And…

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…

Paleo Pumpkin Pie

This grain-free and refined sugar-free recipe for Paleo Pumpkin Pie is a healthy, yet impressive Thanksgiving dessert that is surprisingly easy to make! Truth be told, I don’t love pumpkin pie. I know, the horror. Pumpkin Pie is an American classic, a Thanksgiving tradition, all of that. But I’d just much rather eat a chocolate cream pie, which is what I make for myself on Thanksgiving. Yes, I make pumpkin pie for all the pumpkin lovers and make a chocolate pie basically for myself. Just kidding. Sort of. But even I like this paleo pumpkin pie. I like the creaminess from the coconut milk, I like that it doesn’t taste like a bucket of sugar was added and overall I like knowing that I’m not going to develop diabetes from eating it. Especially if I have more than one slice of Paleo Pumpkin Pie. Which, let’s be honest, I will. Why…

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting (Grain & Refined Sugar Free)

I make these every fall (okay, since last fall) and they’re always a hit. Fall doesn’t really start for me until I make these babies, and I’ve finally accepted that my favorite season is over and soon enough the leaves will change colors and I’ll have to start wearing pants (unfortunately). I make these using almond flour, a healthy dose of anti-inflammatory cinnamon and local, raw honey. The frosting is made from both grass-fed cream cheese and butter and local maple syrup, making the frosting extremely nutrient dense; much more so than the junk you find in the store that’s loaded with hydrogenated vegetable oils, high fructose corn syrup, and refined sugar from GMO sugar beets. If you’re looking for a healthier fall cupcake recipe, this is it! Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting I make these pumpkin cupcakes using almond flour, a healthy dose of anti-inflammatory cinnamon and…

Keto Rotisserie Chicken Salad

I’ve stared buying a rotisserie chicken once a week. Could I make one? Yes. I could. But I have two kids, a business to run, a house to clean, food to prep and I just want a damn pre-made chicken, okay?! Also, I’ve been blogging for ten years. TEN YEARS. I blogged when no one knew what it was and people thought I was fucking nuts. Now, I have to write at least 300 words for my post to have good SEO, and good SEO means Google will share my recipes and posts when people search for them. Are you annoyed by all this text when you just want the damn keto rotisserie chicken salad recipe? SO AM I. So if you haven’t seen it yet, I have a “jump to recipe” button above. Feel free to use it to be taken directly to the recipe. Because I know you…

Anti-Stretch Mark Smoothie – How to Prevent Stretch Marks

Want to learn how to prevent stretch marks? Start with diet and nutrition! I drank this anti-stretch mark smoothie daily for preventing stretch marks during pregnancy effectively. It works from the inside out to keep you and your skin happy, smoothie, wrinkle-free and healthy! When I was pregnant, I was terrified of getting stretch marks like my mom. While there is nothing wrong with stretch marks and most women have them to dome degree, I was afraid of getting them. You see, my mom had the worst stretch marks from pregnancy. To this day, I’ve never seen anyone with worse stretch marks. They were long, thick, discolored and covered her from her belly button all the way around to her spine. She talked about how much she hated them constantly, and worse, how much she hated what pregnancy did to her body. So when we were thinking of getting pregnant,…

10 Foods to Increase Breast Milk Production

Breastfeeding can be a challenge. While we see so much in the news and on social media telling us just how important breastfeeding is, there’s very little honesty about how hard it can be. Many breastfeeding mothers become discouraged and give up when their breast milk production is down. This is why I want to share 10 foods to increase breast milk production! I’m one of those mothers. I was too afraid to ask for help because I was embarrassed that I wasn’t just naturally producing all of the milk that other people seemed to be. However, when I finally got up the nerve to ask a friend about her breastfeeding journey, I learned that low milk production is rather common, and there’s plenty of ways to increase milk production. If your baby is properly latching and nursing or pumping as often as humanly possible, but you’re still not seeing the…

How and Why You Should Have a Daily Lunch Salad

Is eating a salad for lunch everyday healthy? Here’s the low down on lunch salads plus healthy lunch salad ideas that are quick and easy to make ahead. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have a big ass salad for lunch almost every day. So many people get caught up on lunch. They don’t bring food to work and then end up ordering out or eating food in the office – neither of which is as healthy (or cheap!) as simply packing your own salad. Why you should have a lunch salad every day: It’s cheaper. Many people find themselves at the local cafeteria, coffee shop or ordering PostMates for lunch. Buying lunch daily seriously adds up. Statistics vary, but the average cost of buying lunch runs around $12. That’s $60 per week. That’s $3,120 on lunch alone! Now consider that making your own lunch salad…
