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…

Pistou Pork Salisbury Steak with Steamed Broccoli (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 25, 2017 at 4:28pm

September greetings! It doesn’t feel like fall here in Minneapolis at the moment, but that doesn’t mean I’m not craving fall comfort foods. The appetite knows, even if the weather does not. I’m typing this post while watching the Vikings at my boyfriend’s house. Football, farmers markets, braising, roasting vegetables, writing…these things all go together…

Jams, sorbets, crisps, and cobblers are all delectable tricks for managing the bounty of the season and we should all continue to employ (and devour) them as often as possible. But in case you’re as smitten with the savory side of fruit as I am, roasting fruit with fresh herbs and olive oil is 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…

Beef, Bacon & Kale Meatballs (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 17, 2017 at 6:45am

Do you batch cook (i.e. prepare large amounts of food) and freeze some of the bounty for later meals? If not, I suggest giving it a try because it’s a great way to guarantee that you eat nutritious, home-cooked food (instead of take-out or ordering in) on tired, busy nights. I’ll be honest, my freezer used…

Oven-Roasted Hash Salad (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 18, 2017 at 3:34pm

We all know that we should eating more fresh and cooked greens and herbs. They’re loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, plant phenols, fiber, and probably more yet-to-be-understood nutrients. Eating a diet rich in greens is associated with lower risk for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and basically every debilitating disease of aging. And for…

Happy Sunday! What a beautiful weekend it’s been, I just love how Minnesotans (including me) are in a collectively good mood when the sun comes out and temps hit the 60s. I went for a long walk on Saturday and waved at everyone I saw and didn’t even feel like a weirdo. Tralalaaah! I’ll confess…

Kimchi Fried Rice

I first posted this dish before I embarked on the adventure of the autoimmune protocol (AIP), an elimination diet for healing and uncovering food sensitivities that eliminates most of the elements of this dish: eggs, nightshades (including chiles), seeds (sesame), soy (tamari), and grains (rice). I’m happy to report that I can occasionally enjoy all…

Crusty Roasted Pork Shoulder (Paleo, AIP, Whole30)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 15, 2017 at 10:12am

You’d think, after the several pork shoulder recipes I’ve shared with you over the years, that I wouldn’t need to keep playing with new techniques. But I loooooooove me some pork shoulder and I got a hankering one day for a roast that was both falling apart tender AND crusty on the outside. So I…
