Toasted Coconut Butter

If you like coconut butter, you're going to love this toasted coconut butter from http://meatified.com. It's richer, nuttier & less sweet and best when made with a pinch or two of salt.

If you like coconut butter, you’re going to love toasted coconut butter. It’s much less sweetly dessert-esque and more richly flavored than it’s paler counterpart. Toasting the coconut brings out a deeper, almost nutty depth that straight up┬ácoconut butter doesn’t have. It’s such a simple step, but really amps up your coconut butter game! Better […]

Coconut, Rose & Earl Grey Tea Latte

A cozy cup of rose-scented Earl Grey, whipped into a tea latte that's equal parts creamy and comforting. A perfect winter drink from http://meatified.com that's vegan, aip & paleo.

Pomegranate Pico De Gallo

This pomegranate pico de gallo from http://meatified.com is a nightshade free spin on the classic recipe, no tomatoes needed! Crisp, refreshing and perfect as a dip or by the spoon.

As I type this, I’m bracing for the really angry person who is undoubtedly going to yell at me in the comments about how this isn’t “real” pico de gallo because it doesn’t have any tomatoes or serrano peppers. Yeah, yeah, I know. But here’s the thing: although my Pomegranate Pico de Gallo doesn’t contain […]

Roasted Carrots with Green Olive Dressing

Liven up your roasted vegetables with this punchy green olive dressing! It's quick and easy, pairing perfectly with these caramelized roasted carrots from http://meatified.com.

So I have this silly thing about the recipes I share here being “blog worthy”. Whatever the hell that means. In some ways it┬ámakes its own odd kind of sense: I don’t want to be yet another blogger in a sea of bloggers telling you all about how my roast broccoli is somehow life changing. […]
