Gluten-Free Mexican Pizza

I have a confession. I used to get drunk and go to Taco Bell as a teenager. The Mexican Pizza was my JAM. My friend Ali (still one of my closest friends) and I would blast Notorious B.I.G. and giggle and stuff our faces with Taco Bell. You see? This is why I needed to eventually become a nutritionist! I definitely needed a lifestyle change. Which leads to my new favorite recipe: Gluten-Free Mexican Pizza. Taco Bell is kind of notoriously bad food. They use horrible quality meat. In fact, their beef is only 88% beef. Curious what’s in the other 12%? You should be. Because it’s gross. maltodextrin (from GMO corn) tortula yeast (a processed yeast-like fungus) modified corn starch (more GMOs) soy lecithin (from GMO soy) sodium phosphate lactic acid caramel color (a carcinogen) trehalose (a preservative) Yes, Taco Bell beef has not one ingredient, but nine.

Paleo Steak Tacos

I eat tacos at least twice a week. These paleo steak  tacos are one of my faves and it’s one I keep on repeat. At least a few times a week my husband will come home and say “What’s for dinner? Is it f*cking tacos again?!” Don’t worry – he’s just kidding. He loves tacos, even though he makes fun of the amount I consume. Do you guys remember a few years ago when the taco diet was a thing? People were losing weight just eating tacos from Taco Bell of all places? TACO BELL. GRADE D MEAT. Meat that’s mostly made up of soy. Total garbage. But I thought to myself, this is a diet I can get on board with. Tacos all day? Sign me up! I’m not sure how tacos originally got the reputation as being a less than healthy food, but they’re actually quite nutritious, especially…

Meal Prep: Taco Salads

I’m tired. You guys – I am NOT the type to complain about my son. He’s awesome. He’s so much fun. But I’m going to be honest, he’s gotten up between 4-10 times in the night the past week and I’m just kind of tired. I KNOW babies wake in the night. We’re working on fixing this issue and it’s not a huge deal. But point being: holy hell am I glad I already meal prepped these taco salads. It’s so nice to just walk to my fridge, shake up one of these salads, pour it in a bowl and devour. Because it’s rill rill tasty. Honestly, they’re SO good. I didn’t use to love salads but that’s because I was doing them all wrong. Like most people, I loaded it with spinach or romaine and only a few other veggies like random tomatoes, some carrots and maybe some chicken.…

Easy, Healthy Chili

I’ve been craving chili like a madwoman for two weeks now, and only recently finally pulled all the ingredients together to make it. I was going to throw all the ingredients in my crock pot and let them simmer for a few hours, which is easy and you can definitely do. But I wanted to eat it as soon as possible, so I just simmered it on the stovetop. Easy, Healthy Chili You can make this easy healthy chili recipe in your slow cooker or crockpot! If you’re impatient, just simmer it on the stovetop! 1 lb grass-fed ground beef1 tbsp olive oil1 bell pepper (chopped)1 onion (diced)1 can diced tomatoes2 garlic cloves (minced)1 tsp garlic1 tsp chili1 tsp chipotle powder (I like a smoky chili)3 tbsp tomato paste1 tsp cayenne (for spicy chili)2 cups bone broth2 tbsp butter Sautee the olive oil, onion, pepper and garlic over medium heat until…

Paleo Beef Stroganoff

I love me some Russian food. It’s so filling, hearty and healthy. Most recipes of beef stroganoff (or stroganov) call for flour. I’m not down with flour. It’s not nutrient dense but it is inflammatory, so I avoided it altogether to make this version of paleo beef stroganoff. I also didn’t have any wine, but found that soaking the meat in apple cider vinegar beforehand provided that wine flavor. I actually bought a cheap cut of grass-fed beef (skirt steak) which I always find tough. I read that marinated it in apple cider vinegar softens the meat, and it definitely did. I just cut the meat into strips, then covered in ACV and some olive oil. Paleo Beef Stroganoff I love me some Russian food. This easy Paleo Beef Stroganoff is so filling, hearty and healthy.

Philly Cheesesteak Casserole

One time Scott and I took a day trip to Philly just so I could get a grass-fed Philly cheesesteak and go to a bakery we like.   I didn’t eat the sub roll, but holy hell does a Philly cheesesteak do a person good.   But I crave them about once a month. It’s not always realistic to drop everything and drive to Philadelphia (although it’s definitely fun to do and I highly recommend it).   Anyway, I was craving a Philly cheesesteak like crazy last week. I didn’t want to go out and buy one made of CAFO cow and wrapped in a tub of gluten. So I figured I could just make my own version, and it was freaking delicious. Philly Cheesesteak Casserole Philly Cheesesteak Casserole is all about the best parts of a philly cheesesteak sandwich. Have it all together, as a perfect dinner dish! 1 green…

Szechuan Spicy Beef

The flavor of Szechuan (especially that famous sauce!) is so delicious. It’s flavorful and has just the right amount of kick. So naturally, I had to figure out how to produce it at home! But what is the Szechuan flavor? According to WiseGeek: Szechuan cuisine features flavors that are found in Szechuan beef. The Sichuan province in the west of China is the home of Szechuan food. Spiciness and rich flavor are hallmarks of Szechuan food, and it aims to bring together salty, bitter, sweet, sour, and pungent flavors. Delicious. As a result, we all want to make this now. Right?

Mini Meatloaf With Liver

“THE LOAF, MA!” Is what Scott kept screaming around the apartment last night as I was making this. That man doesn’t even eat meat (which is a story for another time, and sort of the bane of my existence). Lately I’ve been on a huge bison kick. I have had absolutely no desire for beef. I take this to mean my body intuitively knows I need something from bison so it’s turned off my taste for beef for the time being. And I trust my body’s intuition, so I made some bison meatloaf. To up the nutritional value, I added beef liver. And it was freaking awesome.

Grass-Fed Steak With Bone Marrow

I got my hands on some bone marrow from Whole Foods over the weekend. I remember eating it at restaurants with my dad when I was a kid (probably the most nutritious thing I ate as a kid) and loving it. But prior to last night I haven’t had it in over 15 years, which is pretty regrettable. Bone marrow has long been used in traditional cultures all over the world, and is highly revered for its nutrient density. Each 100 gram portion of it contains roughly 240 IU of vitamin A, 107 mg of phosphorous, trace amounts of minerals like thiamin, niacin and magnesium, as well as 4.5 mg of iron. Bone marrow is also rich in the essential fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, and eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA. A new body of research maintains that the fat of bone marrow is alkylglycerols, which is also found in liver, breast milk and…
