Rosemary Mint Soda


So this isn’t exactly the kind of soda (or pop depending on where you’re from, I don’t discriminate) that you might expect. It’s not loaded with any type of sugar at all, although optionally you can add a touch of maple syrup for some extra depth to the flavor.

Guest Post: Celery Root Chicken & Mushroom Alfredo


“Today I will be introducing my very first guest post/recipe exchange from one of my best friends Kelly Brozyna at The Spunky Coconut. I’ve long awaited having another blogger post their photographs and recipe on my blog but I knew Kelly would be the right one to start. Not only is she talented at making grain free, gluten free, paleo, and dairy free desserts but she’s also pretty handy when it comes to making a delicious Alfredo.  To find the pie that I guest posted on her blog click here.

Paleo Pesto and Prosciutto Pizza

Pesto-Pizza-From-Slim-PalateI get a plethora of books in the mail, as I’ve mentioned before, but the most anticipated this year is my friend at Primal Palate’s new cookbook Make It Paleo II. There are recipes ranging from Paleo dumplings to this magnificent pizza you see. I already made an adaptation to their dumplings using the dough for Paleo gyoza, also known as potstickers so they have clearly put in a lot of work for versatility in it’s content.
