Easy-peasy, quick recipe today. All you need is some fruit, cinnamon, and a blender!
Paleo-Friendly Meals: Raw Applesauce
- 2 apples
- 1 ripe banana

I absolutely love Filipino food – it’s so savory and delicious. When I was young, my Lola (grandma) watched me everyday and cooked chicken adobo at least once a week. The smells coming from the kitchen were intoxicating and drew me in – cartoon style, feet floating and nose following the visible aroma. I always look forward to chicken adobo over rice on the kitchen table. These days I’m avoiding rice but the flavors of Filipino adobo are so versatile they can be added to almost anything. In this case, I’ll share with you the wonders of Filipino adobo style bok choy!
There’s not much to this recipe at all. It’s more of a quick dessert/gift/project to make when you need sometime sweet and not even close to Paleo-friendly! Arrange them nicely on a platter or put them in clear gift bags with a pretty ribbon! It’s that easy! What you need:
- Bag of square pretzels
- A few rolls of Rolos
- Bag of halved pecans
- Baking Sheet
What you need to do:
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
- Arrange pretzels on a baking sheet
- Place one Rolo on each pretzel
- Bake for about 10 minutes, or until Rolos are soft and melty. Don’t leave them in the oven too long or they will turn into something mushy and scary.
- Push a pecan into each Rolo
- Let cool, then serve!
You’re welcome 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and ALOHA!
I feel like I am forever cooking, especially on Sundays. I’m not complaining – because I love to cook and eat fresh food – but sometimes I exhaust myself looking for something new and yummy to cook. I’m pretty adventurous with my meals and don’t mind trying new things, but my mom is a different story. She’ll usually eat whatever I cook, but the following recipe is one of her favorites. It’s a dressed up version of a classic AND it’s Paleo-friendly. What more could you ask for? (more…)
Happy Wednesday! Here’s a refreshingly delicious accompaniment that goes well with everything! Unite, tomato lovers, this one’s for you!
Oh the weather outside is frightful – but this SOUP is so delightful! I’ve repeatedly expressed my deep love for all things soup before, so here is another Paleo-Friendly recipe that is quick, easy, and most importantly uses my Vitamix (aka my new favorite toy!). If you don’t have one, fret not, an immersion blender or a good old-fashioned blender will do the trick. Read on for the back-story on this deliciousness! (more…)
Why are you so delicious? There’s something so lovely about a giant bowl of spaghetti and meatballs that melts my heart in a special cheesy melty way. Despite your deliciousness, I know that you make me fat and lethargic – not to mention a stomach ache. You’re one of the first things I missed when I went Paleo. But I must admit, pasta m’dear, that I’ve found someone new. It’ll never be as delicious as you, but I know in the long run we’ll be much better together. It’s name? Oh, let’s not let this get ugly. [Spaghetti: TELL ME IT’S NAME!!] OKAY! It’s spaghetti squash. I’ve left you for spaghetti squash.
Happy Wednesday! Hopefully your week is going as well as mine! We are officially in the transition from fall to winter and the best remedy for chilly feet and cold hands is a decadent bowl of soup! I could eat soup all year round, but there is something so satisfying about curling up with a soft blanket and having soup from a fancy little bowl.This recipe is one of my new favorites. Not only is it Paleo friendly, but it is gluten-free and dairy-free! It’s quick and easy too! (more…)
Hello, hello and welcome to the work week! I apologize for my hiatus, but I have been dealing with a lot of things, mainly how to handle stress and juggle about a million tasks at once. I know, welcome to life – no need to complain because I am preaching to the choir. I also just picked up a second job, but I’ll get to that in another post. ANYWAY, what follows is a recipe I created after salivating over the fanciness of Whole Foods. (more…)
In the mood for some yummy Chinese food but want to avoid the next day MSG/salt/carb hangover? (Don’t act like you don’t know what I mean.) Try some Paleo orange chicken for dinner or, better yet, lunch! It travels well and tastes great microwaved! (more…)
