One-Pan Roasted Chicken and Veggies (Paleo, Gluten Free, Low Carb, Whole30)

About this One-Pan Roasted Chicken and Veggies… I’ve mentioned a few times before that I love to do meal prep — and here’s why! First, you can do recipes like this that are super easy and only take a small chunk out of your day, and then you’ve got food for the rest of the week. But most importantly, it helps you stay on track: you’re more likely to stick to your paleo/keto/clean eating etc. if there’s already food and snacks available to you that stick to that plan. If you have to go foraging for something, you’re more likely

Greek Chicken Salad with Tzatziki Dressing

I discovered Greek food this summer, and when I finally tried the chicken salad that the Greek place at the mall makes, I knew I had to come up with my own recipe.

Pan Roasted Rosemary Chicken and Mushrooms

We just got our very first cast iron pan (a cast iron grill pan, no less!) so I decided to try it out with a pan roasting recipe. If you don’t have cast iron, any heavy pan will do — just make sure that it’s safe to go into your oven. This recipe is another potential one-pan recipe that utilizes your oven, so it’s great for the colder months when you’re feeling a little lazy and cold, but want some great food.

Soba Noodles with Glazed Tofu and Stir Fried Veggies (Vegetarian, Gluten Free)

I got my inspiration for this recipe from a few different places. First and foremost, DreamyLeaf’s Teriyaki Glazed Tofu Steaks recipe — she posted a picture on Instagram and though I’ve never been a big tofu person, I almost started drooling just looking at it. I also had some inspiration from a meal I had at Canteen in Toronto, where I had my first taste of soba noodles. And, as usual, I just kind of threw my own random tastes and ideas in there, as well.

Paleo Happy Meal

French fries are one of my all-time favorite foods. However, when they’re made traditionally, they’re terribly unhealthy and decidedly not paleo. The good news is the paleo world is a big fan of the sweet potato, and when turned into “fries” — especially when you kick it up a notch with some spice — they can be turned into a healthy, flavor-packed treat. I paired these with my favorite paleo chicken nuggets to create my very own little paleo happy meal.
