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…

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…

Oh man, it’s peach season, my favorite! I know I say they’re all my favorite – strawberries, blueberries, cherries – and that’s because they are. I love summer fruits, probably because I don’t eat all that much sugar otherwise, so I am in HEAVEN right now. The idea for this appetizer – or breakfast/brunch, my son…

Hellllloooooo official summer! Summer actually began for me when my son Nathan got home from school in May, so I feel like I’ve been in the groove for at least a few weeks. I LOVE when he’s home! He’s super busy with an internship, his girlfriend Sam, and going out with friends, but even just…

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

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 Spring! Meringues and pavlovas make for such light, impressive, and naturally grain-free spring desserts. If you want to go the individual shell route, see the Pavlovas with Lime Curd that pastry chef extraordinnaire Zoe Francois shared with me a few years back. Or, you can bake the meringue as one whole, in a spring form…
