Savory Kid Friendly Meat Pies

When it comes to feeding a toddler, meal acceptance is always different in our household. Although Liam is slowly learning that what we prepare IS what we’re eating (no longer short order cooking), we still have our constant struggles. Sometimes, he doesn’t feel good, isn’t “feeling” the menu, or is just in a grumpy mood….

Juicy Chimichurri Bison Chorizo Sausage

For most of this pregnancy, I’ve been craving MEAT. Ever since I traveled for work last December and had the most scrumptious chimichurri skirt steak, it’s been on my mind.

Spiced Paleo Ham

Soon after Liam visited his new school, I got my first holiday pot luck invite as a new suburban mama. Although the new opportunity to make new mommy friends sounded exciting, it was equally daunting. I didn’t know these ladies’ tastes, any allergies to be aware of, or really what to expect for a pot…

Gluten-Free Pizza Cups

Tying to deal with toddlers’ every changing food preferences and aversions can drive you INSANE. Especially when your kid has food sensitivities/allergies and your options are already limited. After seeing my pizza-burger-wing (anti-Aimee lifestyle) husband continually eat his usuals, an idea popped in my head: introduce pizza to this kid and see how it goes.

Gluten and Dairy-Free Orange Chicken Meatballs

It’s not a surprise that the hubs and I have polar opposite eating habits. I enjoy eating super clean, organic, dairy-free, AIP, etc. The hubs enjoys the typical Americano bar food type of menu (um, who wouldn’t if they had no dietary restrictions). Since my son and I share similar food intolerances, 99.9% of the…

How to Air Fry a Steak

Now that Liam has been mobile for 3+ months, constantly chasing a toddler has made making meals has been a tad more difficult. One night that the hubs was sick, I had thawed out steaks but didn’t have time to pan sear/finish in the oven because Liam was nonstop going for the dog bowls and…

Grass Fed Lamb Meatballs for Littles

Now that the little man has some choppers, it’s been exciting to watch him pick up food and actually eat it….like an actual human, ha. However, that also comes with its challenges. How do I introduce food to Liam that’s appealing, age appropriate, but nutrient dense?

Gluten-Free Paleo Biscuits and Gravy

I’m approaching the end of my nursing career (for right now at least), and being hungry all of the time because of the extra caloric requirement is NO JOKE.  I haven’t dropped a feeding until now. My body has been a machine since the day this kid was born. I have to drink a certain…

Gluten-Free and Egg-Free Paleo Sunbutter Cookies

Now that I’m 1.5 months into going back on AIP/elimination for Liam, his skin is 99% improved and his stomach issues are slowly getting better. For all of the doctors we’ve seen and told us to switch to formula or to accept his issues as normal, eff you. Changing your diet and lifestyle has a…

Creamy Green Paleo Smoothie

To say that the days fly by with an infant, a child no less, is a complete understatement. Everyday I wake up at 5am, I blink and it’s 6pm. My day starts and ends with feeding, burping, pumping, changing diapers, take the dogs out, calming down baby, repeat. Notice, no real significant breaks. Having a…
