Paleo “Couscous”

This is such an easy and healthy side dish to go with fish or chicken. I love cauliflower and all of the things you can do with it! And for those don’t like cauliflower, I promise this does not taste like it. With all the spices and the way it is cooked, it really does taste like couscous. I just added some of my favorite spices that I had on hand, but you can experiment and use whatever spices you like. I love the different textures in this too with the crunchy pine nuts and sweet raisins. Hope you love this too!

Easy Strawberry Banana Ice Cream (Dairy Free & Sugar Free)

 

Last week I tried the strawberry ice cream recipe from The Spunky Coconut’s new book Dairy Free Ice Cream.. and it was amazing! It inspired me to start using my ice cream maker more and to come up with even easier and quicker recipes to use in it. I use the Cuisinart ice cream maker and it works great!  I love this recipe because it is dairy free, sugar free, egg free, and has only 3 ingredients! I use almond milk in it but you can use coconut milk to make it AIP friendly.

  This recipe isn’t dairy free, but it is grain free/low carb, and it only has 3 ingredients! It also comes together in less than 15 minutes.

Roasted Cauliflower & Kale Salad w/ Maple Dressing

This has my new favorite salad lately. I love the roasted cauliflower! Anything roasted is amazing because it gives it that slightly charred flavor. The best part of this recipe is this dressing. Oh my, it’s good! It would taste great with any salad. I love kale because it doesn’t get soggy like other lettuces, [...]
