Homemade Pasta Sauce (without Tomatoes)

This recipe came about because a few friends are allergic to tomatoes and at times the gluten that can be in pasta sauces. Which can lead them to need to sitting out from the dinner course and ordering something else?

This recipe will include the organic canned beets and organic canned carrots since it can take some time to cut and peel these vegetables.

This sauce can be used for pizza’s, pasta dishes, or even for dipping! Now, this sauce will taste a bit different because there are no tomatoes in this recipe whatsoever. That being the case, you can experiment with various Italian seasonings to bring out a heavier taste.

Paleo Avocado Tuna Salad

Tuna is always an easy and healthy choice for a Paleo-on-the-go snack or meal. The problem with tuna is the fact that I love mayo with it! I try to have Paleo Mayo ready for the week, but sometimes the Paleo mayo making does not happen. This “Tuna Salad” is what I try instead. I love the creamy avocado with the tuna.

Give it a whirl and let me know how you like it!

Beef Taco Salad

Nothing says easy like a beef taco or regular taco salad… But taco salads at restaurants can harbor soybean oil, beans, rice, tortilla chips or my favorite – the huge tortilla bowl.

Beef taco salads can easily be made at home with super fresh ingredients, and taste amazing!

The secret to a good taco or taco salad is the taco seasoning… This taco seasoning has chipotle, salt, garlic powder, cumin and some cayenne pepper for kick!

Sliced Sweet Potato Bread

This recipe is for a Paleo Sweet Potato Bread that could fit into anytime of year. However, this time of year, I love pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread, and everything that has to do with “Pumpkin Spice”.  Many of my favorite fall recipes can be “paleoized” into recipes that use ingredients that are high in nutrients, rather than the empty carbs of traditional bread recipes. IMG_8900

Sweet Potatoes are a great source of many vitamins and minerals and make a great base for muffins, bread, and other dessert or snack treats.

This recipe is super easy, and tastes great!

Almost all of the ingredients are stocked ingredients in the Paleo Pantry including coconut milk, coconut flour, maple syrup and dark chocolate.
