Veggie-Packed Meatloaf (AIP, Low-FODMAP, Nightshade Free)

Meatloaf can make life so much easier. Throw a bunch of meat in a pan, cook it, and you have food for a few days. But plain 'ol meatloaf is so boring, so of course I had to jazz it up, specifically with loads of veggies to make it more filling and nutritious! Zucchini is… Continue reading Veggie-Packed Meatloaf (AIP, Low-FODMAP, Nightshade Free)

Crispy “Lebanese” Chicken Thighs (AIP, Low-FODMAP, Nightshade Free)

This recipe is based off of one posted by Grazed & Enthused. It is quite similar, so I don't want to take credit here, but I adjusted it to be low-FODMAP and nightshade free.

Purple Sweet Potato Macaroons (AIP, Vegan, Nightshade Free, Medium FODMAP)

Purple sweet potatoes have recently become one of my favorite foods. It's probably safe to say I'm a little obsessed. They're pretty sweet tasting and they are my favorite color. They get their purple color from the same anti-oxidants that provide blueberries with their color! Anyway, I was making macaroons last weekend and roasting some… Continue reading Purple Sweet Potato Macaroons (AIP, Vegan, Nightshade Free, Medium FODMAP)

What's a holiday pie without a scoop of ice cream on top? Nada. That's what. So of course I had to make a creamy vegan and paleo friendly ice cream for the occasion!

No-Sugar Added Banana Bread (Paleo, Vegan, AIP option, medium FODMAP, Nightshade Free)

I've been in the midst of trying to master an allergy-friendly pumpkin bread, but so far I've failed. So this past weekend I decided to give banana bread a shot. This recipe is based off Eat Heal Thrive's banana bread. I've never had success baking with arrowroot/tapioca starch or cassava flour. It always leaves the… Continue reading No-Sugar Added Banana Bread (Paleo, Vegan, AIP option, medium FODMAP, Nightshade Free)
