We decide every year that we are going to grow zucchini in our garden. Having access to your own fresh zucchini is amazing. This year it felt like we were drowning in zucchini though! We were picking multiple 4 plus pound zucchini’s every day for a few weeks during harvest time! I knew it was time to make a bunch of batches of chocolate zucchini bread.
By the end of the season, I was pushing and pulling a wheelbarrow stuffed to the gills with multi pound zucchini and spaghetti squash to my garage with a smile on my face and sweat dripping down my back. Now that is what I call a true fall harvest. Throw in a little rain, colorful leaves, and some crisp air and I was ready to go and carve a pumpkin!
I am going to be completely honest, zucchini is not my favorite vegetable. *GASP* How dare I say something like that!? Well, it is true, but you know what is really great?? I have a creative mind and can find sneaky ways for people like me to consume vegetables that I may not necessarily love on their own.
Do you have any mint lovers in your life? I absolutely love mint and I can never get enough of it. It is to the point I have started to grow it in my garden, just so that I can have some fresh and accessible whenever I need it! I clearly knew I needed to share my dairy free mint chocolate chip ice cream recipe so that you too could enjoy some healthy mint in your life!
Finding a great dairy free ice cream that does not taste overwhelmingly like pureed coconut with a lacking flavor profile of anything else can be a treasure hunt if you allow it to be! We ended up saying “No thanks!” to that headache this summer and decided to make our own ice cream!
I crave mint the most during the summer time. Mint is known for its “cooling and soothing” health properties and benefits. This herb has so many more benefits than most people are aware of traditionally. Making a healthy sweet treat, like this dairy free mint chocolate chip ice cream, can do just the trick of cooling and soothing symptoms in your life!
I cannot believe that it is Easter and also the first day of April already! I have no idea where this year has gone, but it sure is flying by.
Speaking of flying, in this week’s recipe we are using an unusual ingredient that most people haven’t tried using yet: crickets. Crickets are actually a fantastic way to add extra protein into your diet. There are many scientists that are predicting crickets will be a main source of protein within our diets!
This recipe is packed with a punch of healthy protein that your friends and family will cringe over when they find out what they have just put in their mouth.
If you’re anything like me, you love to have snacks accessible to eat. Not just any snacks, but snacks you can take on the go and know will fill you up and leave your tummy satisfied. Crackers are one of …
We are at the time of year when zucchini is popping up like crazy! If your garden has zucchini like mine does, you probably have some monster zucchini just waiting to be picked. I like to use the huge zucchini for recipes like Paleo Cinnamon Zucchini Bread, whereas the smaller zucchinis I use for zoodles and frying up.
Now that we are getting closer to summer, you may notice that strawberries are becoming cheaper in the stores. One of my favorite sweet flavor combinations is strawberries and banana, so it isn’t too far fetched to incorporate these into a breakfast muffin. Hence the name, Strawberry Banana Muffins!
You may be wondering if this recipe would be too sugary to still be paleo, but with all the seeds, nuts, eggs, and extra collagen this meal still has more protein and fat than sugar. It is overall a little on the sweeter side, which is why I labeled it as a breakfast or dessert option!
