Paleo Hamantaschen for Purim

When I was a little girl Purim was my favorite holiday so naturally hamantaschen were my favorite thing to eat on that holiday.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Purim let me give you a little background so you don’t feel lost the whole way through this post 😉 Purim is a Jewish holiday that celebrates the courage of a very special woman named Esther and, of course, the Jewish people escaping total annihilation. As a kid, hearing this story was awesome because it’s got all of the components of an epic tale à la LOTR or Camelot: kings, romance, royals getting banished, a wise elder (who looks strangely Gandolf-like in all the picture books), a pauperess-turned-queen, acts of immeasurable bravery, a bad guy who gets hanged, plus it takes place in a far away land (The Persian Empire)! What’s not to love?!

Raw Paleo Granola

Raw Bowl’a Paleo Granola

Aaaah the Raw Bowl’a Paleo Granola. Has such a nice ring to it, don’t it? Well there’s more to it than that, actually. Did you know that…

When I’m feeling like lazy bum in the morning, my #1 go-to is THIS recipe? 

Why? Because this – every now and then, I get up in the morning, and I feel just sooo incredibly lazy. It’s like, I just can’t even muster the 60 seconds of effort it takes to grab a pan, turn on the stove, and dump in some coconut oil. It’s true! 

Last Monday was one of those days.

TGI Cornbread Recipe

So, I recently started up a Facebook group, in which we’ve started discussing the topic of the beginning of the “holiday stress period” i.e. The period in which we fret about gaining weight from things like:

  • The extra tastes we unconsciously graze on as we stroll through the grocery store
  • The basket of holiday cookies so thoughtfully given to us by our loved ones over which we feel guilted into eating a few…which in turn (and unbeknownst to our subconscious) morphs into devouring the entire thing
  • The surge in Cortisol from stressing about keeping our sh** together and avoiding food-and-life-shaming from the crowd of (sometimes-judgmental) 20+ people for which we’re preparing to host a gigantic holiday meal & party
  • And, probably lots more…

And then, I asked my people the following:READ MORE

Sakana Bliss Bowl – A One-Skillet Meal

Cooking is easy.

Did you just quizzically raise an eyebrow and think “Yea right!” to yourself?

Ok fine. Let me rephrase that for you. Cooking CAN be easy.

Better?

Look. I know it might not be inherently easy because, well…there are the ingredients to consider, and then the chopping and the roasting, the boiling, the steaming, the sautéing and of course…the mountain of dishes left over after each kitchen escapade. Whoo! That was a mouthful (even for me).

Fire Roasted Butternut Squash Ravioli (Grain-Free!)

If I had to pick a favorite pasta it wouldn’t be linguine or fettuccine  or even those cute little spiraled ones…it would be the quadrilateral classic that was first introduced to me in middle school by none other than Chef Boyardee himself, ravioli. READ MORE

Crunchola Granola Recipe (Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Paleo & Vegan Friendly)

Cereal…something that even in my youth, I have never loved. If you offered me a choice between an omelette and a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, the omelette would win every time, without fail. But granola, now that’s a different story! I remember waking up to the smell of my Mom’s freshly baked granola. Once my nose alerted my brain that the heavenly honey and almond doused air floating through my nostrils meant home made granola, my sleep-deprived, teenage body had a renewed purpose to quit pressing snooze and hop out of bed. READ MORE
