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…

Coffee-Rubbed Steak (Paleo/Whole30)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 6, 2019 at 3:18pm

How do you throw together last minute meals? (And why are they always so good? I think it’s because of the adventure of winging it – a little risk is super delicious, in life and food.) I kayaked on Lake Harriet a couple of weeks ago with my friend Eric Tollefson and while we knew…

Summer Barbecue Menus (Paleo/AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 28, 2019 at 3:07pm

Hellooooo July 4th Partiers! Yeah, I’m even talking to you AIPers and those on an elimination diet. I would argue that if you’re 1) working on your health, 2) trying to uncover food sensitivities, 3) addressing an autoimmune disease, or 4) trying to lose weight, it’s MORE important than ever to entertain and socialize. Deciding…

Pork, Apple & Chard Meatballs (Paleo/AIP/Whole30)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 20, 2019 at 3:34pm

So many meatballs, so little time. That could be the tagline for this blog. 😂 The reason I sing their praises often: meatballs are awesome. Straight off the pan, submerged in sauce or gravy, nestled into noodles (even the grain-free types), swiped through a snappy condiment, anchoring a bowl of soup, or rolled up in…

Pasta Pesto Salad (Gluten-free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 6, 2019 at 6:57pm

Pasta salad? Not exactly paleo, but bear with me. I know many of you – even those who follow AIP – have reintroduced occasional gluten-free grains. I have! Small servings of rice or occasionally brown rice pasta are a nice change of pace. And really, is there anything more convenient to take to a party? I’ve…

Shrimp & Pork “Dumpling” Soup (Paleo, Primal, AIP, Whole30)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 9, 2019 at 3:17pm

Broth bosses! I have a few fresh new moves that I think you’ll really enjoy. It’s been shockingly cold in Minnesota – even for Minnesota – and when that happens, it’s either time to leave town or head for the kitchen. (Or a bath, but you don’t need a recipe for that. Or do you?…

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…

Roasted Grapes with Pork Tenderloin Cutlets (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 23, 2017 at 9:06am

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…
