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. Without further delay, here’s Kelly.” – Joshua

Blender Waffles With Coconut Cream

Waffles-With-Coconut-Cream-From-Slim-PalateI still have quite a while before I get responses from my application to colleges since I applied for next fall. With extra spare time in my hands I’ve been thinking about doing a 2nd cookbook. This time it would be a cookbook with recipes inspired from my 2 month trip to Europe. I got a great response from my Instagram followers but what do you guys think about it? Please let me know in the comments.

How to Make Chemex Coffee


I’m actually enjoying a delicious cup of Chemex coffee as I type this right now. This wonderful device truly creates an utterly rich and flavorful coffee that far surpasses a regular machine. Not to mention is made even better with a splash of creamy raw milk (or coconut milk if you prefer) in it. I understand that at first glance this looks like some crazy contraption but it is extremely easy to use and I’m going to explain it to you with a video (at the bottom of the page) and a recipe.
