One of my favorite things in the new year is starting a brand new calendar. I can’t wait to start 2018 off fresh with this gorgeous, 2018 vegetable calendar by my lovely, talented neighbor, Juli. She took an idea I had and turned it into a real thing. How cool is that?! It’s so beautiful that I just had to share it, in case you have a vegetable-, farmers’ market-, or gardening-enthusiast in your life that you’d like to buy it for this holiday season. It’s full of vibrant veggies like bell peppers, tomatoes, leeks and green beans, all which were hand-painted by Juli.
This calendar is only $20 and it’s in Juli’s Etsy shop!

Now that I’m on a grain-free, vegetarian diet, I eat a lot of cauliflower. Since I eat so much cauliflower, I’ve discovered a super easy method of how to cut it into florets for use in whatever recipe you please.
Roasted cauliflower rice is definitely the best way to eat cauliflower rice. I know from experience.
For breakfast on our first day in Portland, Eric ordered a gorgeous bowl of yogurt and granola at the darling cafe at The Society Hotel. He loved it so much that he’s been eating a version of it at home nearly every day since. Being on a grain-free diet now, I set out to create a homemade grain-free granola recipe I could eat as well and here we are: Oat-free millet granola!
I am addicted to bread. Sadly, I have been gluten-free for more than 5 years, which means I’ve been missing out on delicious bread for a long time. But there’s good news because I’ve developed a fantastic paleo biscuits recipe and. it. is. so. good. These are even better than gluten-free breads, which I tend to enjoy, so I’m pretty smitten with these homemade fluffy, savory pillows of heaven (can you tell?). They’re also really easy to make and low ingredient to boot!
I always see recipes for homemade granola bars come through my Pinterest feed and I must admit I thought they seemed kind of fussy. But now that I’m on a fairly restrictive diet, I find it hard to find pre-made snacks that don’t contain ingredients I’m supposed to avoid. That’s where these awesome homemade granola bars come in, and they’re anything but fussy! They take about 5 minutes to throw together in a food processor, then refrigerate for 30 minutes or so and they’re ready to enjoy!
Three words: sweet potato salad. Crazy, right?! Like, is it cold mashed potatoes? Kind of. But in the best way and I swear you’ll love it.
Before you bypass this sweet potato salad recipe, hear me out. If you don’t like regular potato salad, you’re in luck! This side dish is completely different than what you’re probably imagining: no hard-boiled eggs or mayonnaise, which can both be a turnoff to some people. Instead, this fall-inspired side is basically mashed white sweet potatoes dotted with celery, red onion, dried cranberries and finished off with some fresh thyme leaves. Yes, you read that right: sweet potatoes! It’s an indescribable, tasty dish, so I hope you’ll try it yourself! Continue reading
