Zucchini Noodles with Scallops & Bacon

Zucchini Noodles with Bay Scallops & Bacon from http://meatified.com #paleo #glutenfree #whole30

There have been far too many treats around my house lately. Which was fun for a while but once the novelty wore off, I found myself craving simpler, savory things. When I first started eating Paleo I didn’t allow myself to do “Paleo” treats. As someone who used to bake CONSTANTLY, I didn’t want to […]

Paleo Alfredo with Caramelized Leeks & Bacon

Paleo Alfredo with Caramelized Leeks & Bacon from http://meatified.com #paleo #glutenfree

I know it doesn’t look like it, but this bowl of Paleo Alfredo doesn’t have even a teeny tiny bit of dairy in it. And that’s not pasta. Not even gluten free pasta. Those, my friends, are noodles made out of white sweet potato! You’ve got to love your handy dandy vegetable spiralizer, right? I […]

Dairy Free Seafood Chowder

Who knew you could make a dairy free chowder AND that it could be creamy-delicious-goooood? I didn’t until pretty recently!

Avocado with Strawberry Salsa

Avocado halves filled with a nightshade free strawberry salsa from http://meatified.com make a quick, easy and pretty appetizer or side for all those summer nights & cookouts.

I don’t know about you, but over here, we’re just starting to get into grilling season! Honestly, I tend to leave the actual grilling part to Mr Meatified, which means my contributions to these meals is really only the side dishes or the occasional marinade. I’m ok with this – it’s nice for me to […]

Cantaloupe Bacon Salad

Bacon Cantaloupe Salad

I’m one of those odd people who considers a melon an amazing treat. It never used to be that way, until I found myself with an rabidly anti-melon-unless-it’s-watermelon type of person and had to surreptitiously consume half a melon at a time with a spoon in a secret place. Add to that the fact that […]
