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…

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…

Kimchi Fried Rice

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 31, 2017 at 9:24am

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…

Thanksgiving 2016 Menu

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 17, 2016 at 9:03pm

I taught my Paleo Thanksgiving class at Kitchen in the Market last Friday and wanted to share the recipes with you all. I LOVE Thanksgiving, every single part of it. Planning, shopping, cooking on my own ahead of time and then with the gang on the big day, setting the table, being with my family,…

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…

Pressure Cooker (or Braised) Pork Carnitas and Roasted Cauliflower Rice (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 26, 2015 at 4:59pm

Happy Monday! As I chat with people about the obstacles of adopting a real food lifestyle, I’ve come to realize that one of the biggest is the fear of standing out and/or annoying people. Which is totally legitimate, I’ve had those same concerns. It’s comforting and useful to be a peacekeeper. But conformity has its…

Sweet & Tangy Broccoli Salad (Paleo, AIP-friendly)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 5, 2014 at 2:34pm

Tonight is National Night Out and given that Minneapolis often ranks number one in participation, you may very well be attending a neighborhood block party this evening. If so, I have just the salad for you, a real crowd pleaser that comes together quickly and stays crunchy and appealing on a buffet. You might recognize…

Roasted Cauliflower “Couscous” (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 15, 2014 at 4:03pm

This side dish is a twist on the couscous salad that changed my life. For years, my go-to potluck contribution was a couscous salad, loaded with roasted vegetables, dried fruit, cheese, and nuts. It doesn’t wilt on a buffet and pairs well with barbecued meats and other salads. I made it for my own parties,…

Coleslaw with Caper-Anchovy Dressing (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 24, 2014 at 1:21pm

Are you dreaming of a July 4th barbecue feast? If you are, I have a few ideas for you. Creamy coleslaw is some of the best picnic fare around, but a vinegary slaw can be a tart change of pace, improve while sitting on a buffet, and even add a bit of polish to a…
