Paleo Immune Boosting Soup

I love the Holidays! All the love, kindness, laughter and hugs fill up my heart. Unfortunately, all the rich food and decadent desserts fill out my pants! It also doesn’t help that November kicks off the cold/flu season. So, this year my goal is to still fit (comfortably) in my pants by January and not fall victim to the seasonal cold or flu. This is the perfect Paleo Immune Boosting Soup to boost immunity and keep waistlines in check!

Tom Yum Soup with Shrimp (Thai Hot and Sour Soup)

Tom Yum Goong Soup (Thai Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup)… My first taste of hot and sour soup was at a Thai restaurant when I lived in Hawaii. It was late October and I was homesick. I was particularly missing the cold, stormy fall weather that I was used to ushering in soup season (my favorite season!). What I remember most about my first encounter with this delightful soup, was that I hated my first spoonful! I had not had a lot of experience with Thai or Asian cuisine and when I took that first slurp, I was in for

Paleo Roasted Root Vegetables

Root vegetables are to fall as asparagus is to spring. And yes, you know a true foodie when their season’s are marked by the changes in produce not the changes in weather. And I know, Brussels Sprouts aren’t root vegetables, but the name of this recipe was so catchy I couldn’t help myself! Forgive me. This Paleo Roasted Root Vegetables recipe is not your typical roasted root vegetable recipe. Yes, there are herbs and rustic knife cuts. But, this method of seasoning makes it so every vegetable is slightly different and totally jazzes up what is typically a one note dish.

Grandma’s Dilly Beans (Pickled Green Beans)

I am not a breakfast fan, but I am a brunch fan. There is something to be said about a relaxing Sunday with a nice Bloody Mary (or Maria if you are me). The classic garlicky and spicy pickled green beans is the quintessential stirring stick of a bloody Mary. And best of all, to achieve this classic dilly bean, you just need is some basic canning equipment and patience.

Paleo Mess of Greens with Bacon (with Chard, Collards or Mustard Greens)

What do you do with an abundant amount of garden greens? Especially when you’re the only one that eats them? Bacon. The answer to all the world’s problems. Bacon. This is a simple recipe from my grandma that she taught me and used to get all her kids to eat their greens. Add a little bacon and butter (or coconut oil) and there you go. My family of two (plus dogs) can devour 5 pounds of greens easily in one sitting. Thanks Grandma and of course, Bacon!

Paleo Breakfast Hash

In all honesty breakfast is not really my thing. I’m a grab-and-go, eat mid-morning between errands kind of girl. But when I’m on vacation, or better yet camping, there is something just so perfect about a good cup of coffee and a warm skillet breakfast that just puts me right into relaxation mode.

Panang Curry Soup (Paleo, Gluten Free)

Panang Curry is one of my favorite Thai dishes. Something about the sweet from the coconut milk and the spicy from the thai chilis that is heaven in my mouth. This recipe takes all of the beautiful flavors of Panang Curry and marries them with the concept of butternut squash soup. Using the creaminess of leftover cooked butternut squash and an immersion blender the two dishes come together to make a creamy, sweet and spicy soup!
