Following a modified version of SCD/AIP combination means new foods and dishes can take a lot of effort, thought, and creativity. And gotta be honest, there are MONTHS at a time I eat basically the combo of meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, possibly switching up a fruit, veggie, or the way I cook my meat from time-to-time. There's nothing necessarily wrong with this as long as I am aware of the nutrients I am taking in,...

Meatballs. Sounds simple right? Not when most meatball recipes are filled with gluten, dairy, eggs, and nightshades...all things my body loudly rejects. It's somehow still shocking to me how many extra ingredients can be jammed into a seemingly simple dish, but that's why home cooking is life. So in an effort to cut down a long list of complicated ingredients into a allergy-friendly version that I could enjoy, I came up with t...

As promised, today I bring you my fried chicken strip recipe!! Guys..I literally have NO idea how I've gone this long grain-free and NOT have thought of making chicken strips. This is such a game-changer and is bringing me back to half my childhood (the other half was pizza bites). 

A major perk of these is that they are not only fully AIP, but totally SCD as well, which can be summed up in two words...NO BLOATING! Something I...

If you're anything like me, you just realized the Super Bowl was today...yesterday. Sometimes I wonder what else I'm completely oblivious to. With this lack of awareness, I had NOTHING in mind for finger foods this evening. When I was eating all things gluten, dairy, and sugar, I would just run to the store and pick up a pack of frozen pizza bites, chips, and cookies, but those days are long over and it eating has become a lit...

If you're paleo, SCD, or AIP, you've probably already converted to spaghetti squash instead of spaghetti. Although spaghetti squash is a pretty great replacement, if you're AIP, you know the struggle of trying to find a sauce to top it that tastes even remotely Italian. Well, I've got the answers for you via best nightshade free nomato sauce I've found in my entire life!

This recipe is super simple, easy to make large port...

Ever tried cauliflower pizza crust? Don't. Going AIP sent me on a hopeless search through dozens of pizza crust recipes searching for something that tasted even remotely like real pizza that you didn't have to eat with a fork; all the while weeding through crusts packed with yucca, cassava, eggs, or tapioca. Pizza was always the one food I felt left out from when everyone else was eating. It's such a social food and most recip...

Mexican in general is one of my all time favorite foods. This can be a challenge when eating AIP or even just paleo since almost everything is made with either corn or wheat. I've probably eaten thousands of pounds of corn and tortilla chips in my day smothered in queso, salsa, and guac, so giving it up all at once was tragic. I tried regular plantain chips (cutting up a plantain and baking or skillet frying them), sweet potat...
