Crispy Chicken Salad with Peaches, Corn & Green Beans (Paleo, Primal) and Gascony, France

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 10, 2019 at 2:27pm

Oh my stars I am going to miss summer produce. That’s a little trick that I employ, by the way, to keep myself from taking even one bite of this gloriousness for granted – I remind myself that these treasures of perfect corn, peaches, and green beans are temporary delights. It’s not a sad reminder. In fact,…

Flavorbomb Chicken Breasts (Paleo/AIP/Whole30)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 11, 2019 at 8:28pm

I work with many women who can not bear to eat another boneless, skinless chicken breast. They burned out on them, probably as 20-something, health-conscious women eating chicken breasts as a steady source of lean protein. Because they ARE a great source of lean protein. And they’re fast to cook and are incredibly versatile. But I…

Crispity Chicken Thighs with Spicy Cilantro-Mint Pesto (Paleo/AIP/Whole30)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 30, 2019 at 2:41pm

This recipe is your new go-to chicken – with a bombtastic sauce – but this post is really about the plate. A couple of weeks ago, I visited my aunt Mary and uncle Bruce at their home on Green Lake, in Spicer, Minnesota. My dad and stepmom Susanna were there too, and the five of…

Paleo Holiday Appetizers + Tips for a Great Cocktail Party (Paleo, AIP, Gluten-Free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 18, 2018 at 11:46am

Happy Almost New Year! I taught a Paleo Holiday Appetizers class at Kitchen in the Market last week. I don’t know about you, but few things are more fun for me than eating a bunch of appetizers for dinner! Bring on meatballs, sticky wings, and stuffed mushrooms and I am a happy partier. For the…

Braised Chicken in a Pot (Paleo, AIP, Whole30, Primal) and Tips for a Good Braise

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 29, 2017 at 1:24pm

It snowed in Minneapolis this week and BAM, just like that I hopped into winter mode, so fast I took my own breath away. Where just the week before I was sweating it out in my kitchen in a tank top and bare feet, exactly 7 days later I was lighting candles, soaking in a…

Eat Heal Thrive’s Ginger-Lime Sticky Chicky (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 27, 2017 at 12:10pm

Happy Weekend, my friends. I didn’t say Happy Memorial Day because the spirit of the day isn’t exactly happy. I think of it as a day for reflection and remembrance and even grief. Some people fret about the barbecues and partying that mark the holiday but I liken it to the meal after a funeral – gathering together with…

Chicken Hash Brown Patties with Pesto (Paleo, AIP) and a Giveaway

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 5, 2016 at 4:59pm

Spring has sprung and I couldn’t be happier! Despite daylight savings, more sunshine, color, fragrance, and warmer temps mean I hop out of bed earlier and have more energy to do the things I love most – read and write and talk about creating the energy to live a big and vibrant life, starting with delicious, deeply…

Cold Peanut-Sesame “Noodles” (Grain-free, Gluten-free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 8, 2016 at 11:44am

I had the pleasure of chatting about cooking and healthy eating tips with a group of smart and lovely people at Weber Shandwick PR this past Friday. Given we were talking in an office conference room, there wasn’t the option to cook a dish for them, so I made the group an easy and flavor-packed cold dish that…

Slow-Cooked Halibut with Warm & Cold Salad | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP-adaptable)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 6, 2015 at 12:10pm

This dish of divine represents the beauty of unplanned cooking with friends. You know those meals, usually last-minute, thrown-together affairs – the ones where one friend has some vegetables and another a piece of meat and another some fresh herbs and wine. Spontaneity (and cocktails) draw seemingly disparate elements into a lovely and memorable meal, with everyone agreeing: we HAVE…

Pan-Roasted Chicken with Figs & Mushrooms (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 7, 2014 at 8:41pm

The chicken is secondary in this recipe as far as I’m concerned – this dish is about the fresh figs. When perfectly ripe, figs are of course delectable eaten out of hand. But by applying just a bit of heat – either by running them under the broiler or searing them briefly in a bit…
