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…

Schaum Torte (Paleo, Primal)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 13, 2017 at 9:48am

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…

Chocolate Avocado Pudding (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

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…

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…

Part I: Breaking Bad Patterns and Healing Green Broth | Paleo, AIP

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 7, 2016 at 11:23am

This is a different kind of post for me, although given the incredibly kind and deeply personal responses to my post describing why I’ve removed alcohol from my life, I thought I’d share some of my observations. Given my past, my age, and feeling seriously unwell for a few years, my focus has become creating the energy and…

Korean Bulgogi (Grilled Steak) | Paleo, Primal

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 3, 2016 at 11:53am

You guys, I’ve already been in Boulder for more than two weeks. WHAT? It took me the first week to feather my nest, find a good daily groove, and get my brain adjusted to the unsettling fact that I’m a long way from home. But a visit from my sister Etta, a last-minute (and utterly stunning,…

Chicken Skewers with Chopped Cucumber, Arugula, & Olives (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 20, 2016 at 9:30am

Hello from Boulder, Colorado. I’ve just arrived and I’m staying for at least a month. It was a rather last minute decision that had been brewing for awhile, if that makes sense. For the last couple of years, I’d been pondering the fact that because Nathan is in college, and because my work is relatively…

Rhubarb “Egg” Cream for Fauxtail Friday (and for Dessert!) | Primal, Paleo & AIP adaptable

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 22, 2016 at 3:15pm

Happy Fauxtail Friday! And in this case Happy Dessert Friday, because this baby pink beauty is the PERFECT easy summer dessert. “Egg creams” aren’t all that familiar to us Midwesterners, at least these days when soda fountains have all but disappeared. But they’ve persisted on the East Coast, and that’s a wonderful thing, because holy cats…

Cauliflower-Leek Soup with Crispy Shrimp (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 11, 2016 at 6:45am

Around five years ago, I somehow fell into the company of a group of incredible women who were about to usher me through a massive life change. I didn’t know it, and they didn’t know it, but in retrospect I can see that the way we became fast friends was a rare and special thing,…

Grilled Watermelon Salad with Cherry Tomatoes & Charred Beets (Paleo, Primal)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 7, 2016 at 5:00am

I hope you had a lovely July 4th weekend! Isn’t summer just The Best? I did all of my favorite things – farmers market, slept in, walked, hit golf balls, created recipes, wrote, took pictures, sat in the sun, tidied my house, sipped fauxtails, read. The highlight was spending the 4th at Stephanie March’s with…
