It’s Feast ‘n Devour time again, and this month is LEMON!! Wouldn’t it have been weird if I said it was chocolate, since the title says Paleo Lemon Cheesecake? No? Okay then, you are going to love this cheesecake. It is rich and creamy just like a “normal” cheesecake, but has no gluten, refined sugar, or dairy to weigh you down or mess with your stomach……..
Who loves Nilla Wafers? They were one of my favorite cookies when I was a kid, way back when I was able to dunk them in milk or eat them with banana pudding…and now I cannot do either of those things. One thing that I can still do, is use them as the base in cheesecakes…dairy-free of course. And if we’re going to make dairy-free cheesecake, we may as well make Paleo Vanilla Wafers……..
What is it about spring and lemons? Lemons grow year round, well in some places, but once the calendar and the clocks change the lemon recipes fill the blogisphere. Not that I am complaining, I love all things lemon!! This year I decided to make a “healthier” version of my all-time favorite lemon cheesecake, so this Paleo Lemon Curd was needed to make it work…..
What would you say if I told you that today’s recipe will require you to dig a big hole in your back yard, fill it with wood and lava rocks, cover it with dirt and banana leaves, and wait for 16 hours until it is thoroughly cooked? You’d say I’m bonkers, right? Well luckily this Instant Pot Kalua Pork requires none of those things!…
While I was on Whole 30 I spent a lot of time perusing cookbooks looking for fun recipes that could be adjusted to make them “safe” to eat…no sugar, gluten, dairy, etc. I must have been craving Mexican food that day because I grabbed my copy of Pati’s Mexican Table and was instantly mesmerized by her Shredded Pork in Acho-Orange Sauce. I was also on an Instant Pot® kick and decided to recreate the recipe and turn it into Instant Pot Ancho-Orange Pulled Pork……..
Well I made it 3 months without any desserts, I deserve a medal! Whole 30 does not allow any desserts, of any kind, and I wasn’t exactly sure what paleo-fied dessert I wanted to try first. That is until our Feast ‘n Devour group chose Carrots for this months theme, so I knew that I had to make Paleo Maple Carrot Cupcakes with Creamy Maple Frosting……..
“Eat more vegetables” seems to be the one consistent theme that all doctors seem to agree on. Some want an exclusive vegan diet, while others want high protein and vegetables with no carbohydrates. Do not even get me started on the ridiculous Food Pyramid, or is a quadrangle now? Luckily this Superfood Salad will keep everyone happy, including your belly……..
Have you ever had one of those weeks where you just want to crawl up into a ball and ignore the world? Maybe just pretend that the outside world does not even exist? I just had one of those weeks, and I am trying very hard to move forward and figure things out…starting with this delicious Sweet Onion and Citrus Dressing……..
