Super-easy Paleo Alfredo

I chose to use a cashew-based sauce with zucchini noodles and pork loin, but there many different ways to tackle this dish.

AIP Shepherd’s Pie – Going Paleo Deliciously

Besides now having an excuse to eat bacon every day, going AIP paleo has been a bit of a stretch for me. Thankfully, learning how to tweak recipes is a personal hobby of mine.

Putting the Pieces Together

We don’t talk enough about the added effects of chronic health problems. We’ll talk about what medications help. We might mention their physical side effects. But how often do we talk about how these things affect our daily lives? It’s almost as if being alive is enough. But in some ways it really isn’t. Being alive and living are not mutually inclusive. Doctors and  ...
