Paleo Pork Tacos

Other than scrambled eggs with veggies, tacos are probably the meal I eat most often. I eat A LOT of tacos. Shrimp tacos. Crockpot pulled chicken tacos. And my new favorite, paleo pork tacos. Actually all the tacos I eat are technically paleo thanks to Siete Almond Flour Tortillas. I linked to them on Amazon but you can get them at most Whole Foods stores for MUCH cheaper. Seriously, they’re amazing. Sometimes when I try paleo products, it’s obviously that it’s an imitation of the real thing – and a poor one at that. These are not like that. They are delicious, tasty, legit tortillas. I swear I’m not being paid to say this, I’m not an affiliate or anything. This is not a sponsored post. I just really love their tortillas! My one problem is that they tend to break…if you over-stuff them…like I do. So first, don’t do…

How To Eat Healthy Without Breaking The Bank

I’m going to be very honest and say something that a lot of you probably will not like: THE “HEALTHY EATING IS TOO EXPENSIVE” EXCUSE IS TOTAL BS. Of course, there are exceptions. The people who are truly unable to afford healthy food because they’ve come on incredibly hard times. The single mom working two jobs and trying to pay for her children just to get by. The elderly man, unable to work. Of course there are times when this isn’t just an excuse. But let’s be realistic, most people choose not to purchase healthy food because they don’t prioritize it. People will spend $5 on a fancy drink from Starbucks, but will say $6 for a dozen organic and pastured eggs is too expensive. People will get their nails done, go out for beer with their buddies, go to happy hour with their girlfriends, get their hair done, pay for expensive…

Paleo Bang Bang Shrimp

So apparently this is a dish from Bonefish Grill. Admittedly I’ve never been there, but I’ve seen this recipe floating around Pinterest for years. It always looked really, really good but was coated in cornstarch and tossed in rancid vegetable oil mayo, which just sounded gross to me. And then I thought, I can just make paleo bang bang shrimp. No cornstarch, no sketchy ingredients and no heart attack inducing vegetable oils. Paleo Bang Bang Shrimp This is my healthy take on paleo bang bang shrimp.

Paleo Blueberry Bread Pudding

I’ve really been craving blueberries lately. I got a bunch of bags of frozen bags of organic blueberries at Trader Joe’s and they’re surprisingly delicious. If I’m craving them, I automatically assume that means my body needs some specific nutrient found in blueberries. And who am I to deny what my body needs? So I made paleo blueberry bread pudding. I settled on bread pudding because I wanted something kind of cake-y and kind of bread-y. And because I suck at baking – it’s pretty difficult to f*ck up bread pudding. I mean, it’s just a blob of sweet, gooey bread. I topped mine with raw goat milk but you can use whatever you like. Ice cream would be awesome. Paleo Blueberry Bread Pudding This healthy paleo bread pudding with blueberries is kind of cake-y and kind of bread-y. You don’t need to be a good baker to whip up…

Paleo Frosting

Honestly, I’m not super big on sweets but I’ve always loved frosting. It’s the best part of the cake or cupcake. And also, my husband is a sugar fiend. That man LOVES sweet. He’d eat several treats a day if I let him, and if it wouldn’t give him diabetes and make him gain weight. So because I know a lot of times it’s either make him a healthier dessert or have him eat a dessert when we’re out and about (that’s full of either gluten, sugar, vegetable oils, GMOs, etc) I try to make some sweets at home, then portion out them out and freeze the rest. My latest creation was cake. I’m still working on the cake part but the frosting I threw together was awesome. It actually tastes like real buttercream frosting, minus the genetically modified dairy and sugar. I prefer to use maple syrup in this…
