Low Carb Vegan Chevre-Style Soft “Cheez” (dairy-free, nut-free, low-FODMAP, paleo)

Since I’ve been posting a lot of “basics” lately (like homemade hemp tofu and homemade coconut milk), I thought I’d continue that theme with this low carb vegan soft “cheez.” It’s super simple, easily customize-able to different dietary needs, and is the perfect tangy, rich […]

Low-FODMAP Hempfu Scramble (vegan, allergen-free, paleo)

A little bit ago, I posted a recipe for some soy-free hemp tofu I made with hemp hearts. Since coming up with this recipe (which was a modified version of one that had been floating around the internet for the better part of a decade), […]

How to Make Coconut Milk and Coconut Cream From Dried Coconut

How to Make Coconut Milk and Coconut Cream From Dried Coconut

Over the past decade, I’ve been slowly trying to make more and more of my food from scratch to eliminate unnecessary packaging and ingredients from my diet. Plus, most of the time, making things from scratch can save you some cash over the store-bought versions. Lately, I realized I was buying a lot of canned coconut milk to make coconut cream with and also a lot of coconut milk in the cartons to put in my tea and coffee. So, I thought I’d start making homemade coconut cream and coconut milk to cut down on the cost, the additives and the packaging.

The Best DIY Hemp Tofu (soy-free hempfu)

A while ago, I found a recipe online for hemp tofu, and I tried it…and I really didn’t like it. At all. It was gritty and crumbly and really just didn’t do it for me. I also bought some hempfu at the grocery store to […]

High Protein “Cheesy” Breakfast Porridge (vegan, low carb, low fodmap, gluten free)

Since giving intermittent fasting a little break, I’ve been looking for new breakfast options that are not only vegan and low-FODMAP, but are also gluten free, nut free and soy free. If you’re thinking, “man, going out to eat must be next to impossible,” you […]

Low-FODMAP Vegan Chickpea Scramble

Low-FODMAP Vegan Chickpea Scramble

I’ve been following a low-FODMAP diet lately, and have really been relying pretty heavily on chickpea scrambles to add protein to my diet, while also feeling like I’m still eating real food. I’m a big fan of savory breakfast foods, and maintain a low carb vegan diet as well, so I wanted to come up with a recipe that would be tasty enough to help me stick to this, but also would provide actual nutritional benefits.

AIP Vegan Cranberry Banana Cookies (Gluten Free, Nut Free, Paleo)

AIP Vegan Cranberry Banana Cookies (Gluten Free, Nut Free, Paleo)

While I’m a huge fan of elimination diets like the Auotimmune Protocol (AIP, also known as Autoimmune Paleo), they can definitely be difficult to stick to. I always miss having the option for a dessert item. Even further, it’s a challenge to find an AIP […]

Why aren’t you losing weight on Paleo?

Why aren’t you losing weight on Paleo?

Okay, so this doesn’t apply to everyone. Many people go on paleo/primal diets, and find the whole experience to be pretty transformative, health-wise. Then there are those that transition to a paleo way of eating and don’t end up losing any weight at all. I […]

Parsley Hempseed Pesto

Parsley Hempseed Pesto

This keto-friendly recipe is a flavorful and tangy alternative to the typical basil-and-pine nut affair. As a bonus, all of the ingredients pack quite the nutritional punch! Hemp seeds alone offer up a complete spectrum of amino acids, while olive oil is high in mono-unsaturated fatty acids and parsley, garlic and lemon all have been shown to have anti-cancer properties. Not too bad for a quick and easy recipe! (more…)
