Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

One of my favourite cookbooks has got to be Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook. Her recipes are absolutely delicious and do not contain obscure ingredients that are difficult to find. I’ve made a couple of tweaks to this recipes (we aren’t a huge fan of overly spicy dishes) but otherwise I made the recipe as is. Throw all of these ingredients into your slow cooker overnight and the next morning you…

Paleo Shepherd's Pie

Paleo Shepherd’s Pie

By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

Nothing says comfort food quite like a shepherd’s pie. This recipe was a huge hit in our house and it was so simple to make. I suggest preparing this on the weekend to have lunches ready for the whole week. This shepherd’s pie freezes great – so double batch it and you can relax next weekend.

Chicken Pork Apple Burger

Apple Basil Burgers

By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

These burgers are great for any meal of the day – pair them with eggs and fresh fruit for breakfast or serve as a traditional burger for lunch or supper. These burgers have lots of flavour and are so simple to prepare. The first batch I made with just ground chicken and there didn’t seem to be enough fat so they turned out quite dry. Next time I did half ground…

Bacon and Potato Salad

By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

Isn’t it true that bacon makes everything better? I bet I know what you’re thinking, “isn’t this girl a dietitian. Why is she suggesting bacon and potatoes – won’t this make us fat?”. If you didn’t get a chance to see my latest post on resistant starch, you can read it here. With regards to bacon – it’s a great fat to include in our diet – it’s just all about the quality…

Grain Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

By | Recipes, Snacks | No Comments

These have got to be the best grain free chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. They are quick to prepare and even quicker to bake. These cookies contain no processed sugar, no gluten-containing grains, and are dairy-free. I love to use this recipe when getting together with friends or colleagues because these cookies meet the majority of dietary restrictions… and they’re delicious!.

Makeover Monday: Taco Seasoning

By | Recipes | No Comments

Tacos were my absolute favourite food growing up. However, it wasn’t until I had finished 5 years of nutrition schooling/interning that I had taken the time to read the back of that little package. After seeing such a huge list of unnecessary ingredients, such as “corn maltodextrin”, “sugar”, “caramel colour”, “hydrolyzed soya and corn protein” (in taco seasoning, really?) the quest for finding a delicious taco seasoning recipe was on….

Slow Cooker Chicken Masala

By | Entree, Recipes | One Comment

A busy schedule has made my slow cooker my most used kitchen tool. I love this dish because I can chop up all of the ingredients, throw them into one pot and in 8 hours have a delicious meal ready to eat when I get home from work. What else I love about this recipe is that although it calls for a lot of spices, almost all of them are in…

This delicious pork dish can be thrown into the slow cooker in the evening and ready to be packed in your lunch the next morning. The sweetness from the peppers and maple syrup create the perfect mixture of flavours. Throw these ingredients in the crock pot and don’t worry about dirtying too many dishes or waiting hours for it to be ready. Put everything together Sunday evening and have lunches prepared…

Paleo Holiday Stuffing

Okay so it’s only November, but getting into the spirit of the holiday season I decided to try out a new stuffing recipe modified slightly from the amazing Juli Bauer’s recipe (you can read the original recipe here). This stuffing is a meal all in itself, so you don’t have to wait until the holidays to whip up this delicious blend of warm flavours!  This recipe is egg-, nightshade-, gluten-, dairy-free but it…
