Paleo Mushroom Cauliflower Fried Rice

I love this mushroom fried “rice” recipe — it is SO quick and easy to make, and it tastes so good! But at the same time, it’s absolutely packed with nutrients from the high-quality protein in the eggs to the vitamin- and mineral-rich mushrooms. The fiber and protein in the riced veggies will help you feel full without all of the slow-you-down carbs that you’d get from regular rice. You can’t go wrong with this Paleo Mushroom Fried Cauliflower Rice!

Stir Fry Cabbage with Sichuan Peppercorn (Paleo, Gluten Free, Whole30, Vegan)

I feel like cabbage is so underrated!  It’s so delicious to me… but I mostly stir fry it Chinese style.  One common method is to stir fry cabbage with dried shrimp (recipe here), but another is to stir fry cabbage with Sichuan peppercorn! This gives it a different flavor and it’s always fun to switch it up and eat something different and delicious once in awhile.

It’s the time of year where there seems to be a party or event every weekend.

Paleo Coconut Caramel Brownies

I don’t usually bake. I’ve always been good at it, but it just never seems quite as fun. To me, baking is the flip-side of cooking: cooking is all organized chaos and anything goes, while baking is rule-heavy and chemistry reliant. So when the words “I’ll bake you something!” came out of my mouth as a bribe to get my supervisor at work to help me, I got a little scared when I realized I’d have to do something I hadn’t done in years — and this time, do it Paleo.

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.
