This Crudité Platter with Dairy-Free Tzatziki Sauce makes for such a light and refreshing snack, appetizer, or side-dish! The perfect bright and colorful dish to make with any seasonal veggies you have on hand! Dairy-free, egg-free, grain-free, gluten-free, and Whole30 compliant! This will be the most gorgeous appetizer on the table, for sure!
Is there anything better than a dish filled with colorful fresh produce? We blanched the carrots, broccoli, and snow peas in this platter to create that pop of color! Blanching stops the enzyme actions that can cause loss of flavor and color in vegetables, making it a great technique to use before freezing vegetables or serving them raw!
This would be the perfect spread for any dinner party, brunch, or holiday celebration!
Fill a large saucepan with water and toss in salt. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Fill a large bowl with ice water and set aside.
Prep you vegetables and place them in the boiling water. Set your timer for three minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the broccoli, red radish, snap peas and watermelon radish and place vegetables into the ice water. Set your timer for two more minutes. After two minutes, remove the carrots with the slotted spoon and place into the ice water. Remove the vegetables from the ice water and pat dry. Serve on platter of choice!
Place shredded cucumber in a medium mixing bowl. Add 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and let sit for 5 minutes.
Place coconut milk, lemon juice, dill, sea salt and black pepper into a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into a small mixing bowl.
Strain the water out of the cucumber. Add the cucumber to the small mixing bowl with the coconut milk mixture. Stir well. Taste and adjust seasoning as desire. Place in serving bowl and sprinkle with paprika.
This Chocolate Chip Banana Pancake Casserole is going to be the new hit of your brunch and weekend parties. It’s made with my popular fluffy paleo pancakes, and really, who doesn’t love a chocolate chip and banana combination?

Sweet Potato Salad with Bacon, Caramelized Onion, and Raspberry Drizzle
Two weeks ago my friends from Stronger Faster Healthier sent me their new protein blend, Fuel, to try. With two pounds gone, it’s safe to say that we (Mike and I) are completely obsessed. It is absolutely DELICIOUS and aside from the fact that it is coconut flavored (ah-mazing), it is formulated to fuel you up for the day, which is obviously essential.
Details: Fuel combines non-denatured whey protein derived from A2 milk (from grass-fed, free range cows), coconut fat (MCTs: these fats are broken down to ketone bodies which are the preferred fuel for our brains and hearts), and apple pectin (a mixture of medium glycemic carbohydrates in a matrix of natural fiber- The fibers help to slow the absorption of high glycemic carbohydrates and sugars). All great stuff, and what’s even more great is all of the coconut protein recipes coming out my kitchen.
This is smoothie is fool-proof! It is creamy, delicious, and packed with nutrients.
Let’s start with this… I love salads. But sometimes in the winter I want something warm. Now let’s combine the two… a warm salad for the perfect meal starter (or hey, add some protein and make it your entire meal)! Warm baked apples, roasted sweet potato and onions drizzled with walnuts and a homemade dressing. Sweet, Savory, and flavorful perfection. Assembling this salad is a breeze, and you can shop Membership Rewards points along the way!
