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……..
This Instant Pot Salsa Verde Shredded Chicken is versatile enough to be used as a filling for tacos or burritos, and as a topping for salads! Yes seriously, I have been eating my leftover chicken over salads all week. The chicken turns out moist and tender, with just enough flavor to compliment whichever salad dressing I decide to use……..
My Instant Pot® obsession continues, and this time I turned my Adobo Slow Cooker Chicken into Instant Pot Adobo Chicken. I have no idea why I reversed the words in the title, oh well. Either way you make it, you will end up with juicy, delicious chicken that is perfect as a taco or burrito filling……..
These Cassava Flour Tortillas are grain-free, nut-free, and gluten-free, which makes them perfect for all of your Paleo, Celiac, or allergy-free meals. I mentioned last week that I was craving tortillas, and I actually caved and used wheat flour tortillas with my Instant Pot Pork Carnitas. If you have been following me for a while, you know that I do not follow any specific diet……..
This Whole 30 Clam Chowder is a healthier version of everyone’s favorite New England Clam Chowder. The dairy and gluten have been removed, but all of the flavor remains! Yes, I am calling this “healthier” even though it contains bacon. My blog, my rules, LOL The bacon in question is as pure as possible, pork and celery salt, so there are no pesky additives or chemicals added……..
