Sweet and Fudgy Coconut Spread

Shortly before I started my recent double round of Whole30, I created something a little bit similar to this by combining a few near empty jars of existing nut butters that were sitting in my pantry… Seeing as how I had elected to void nuts from my diet for 60 entire days, I wanted to rid my kitchen of any and all […]

Shepherd’s Pie with an Indian Twist

This is not your typical Shepherd’s Pie, people… This, I think, is candy pretending to be Shepherd’s Pie. It’s sweet, it’s warm and buttery and it’s oh so comforting. We’re talking creamy ground beef and pan-fried tidbits of ripe plantain, brought together by a velvety smooth layer of spiced sweet potato and butternut squash puree. Oh yeah! It tastes just like paradise, I tell you! […]

Rustic Coconut Rutabaga Mash

Inspiration comes to me from many places, like the Internet, cookbooks and mainly my own brains, but this particular recipe I got from one of my favorite cooking magazines. They had this brilliant article in it, where they showcased well-known, notorious duos and classic combos, such as: Perfect Matches: Bananas and Chocolate — Bacon and Eggs Opposites Attract: Surf and Turf — Sweet and […]

Paleo Toasted Coconut Fudge

For years, I’d been toying with the idea of getting my hands on one of those beautiful machines that’s known as a Vitamix… But I always resisted the temptation, first and foremost because I wanted to keep my recipes accessible and thought that most people out there did not own a Vitamix and therefore wouldn’t […]

Almond Pistachio Fat Bombs

If I had to name one thing that I do like about the Keto diet, it would have to be coming up with fat bomb recipes such as this Almond Pistachio Fudge. I must admit that fat bombs are a fun and tasty way to boost one’s daily fat intake. Still, the principle doesn’t sit all that well with […]

Matcha and Coconut Fat Bombs

I can’t believe it’s already been 5 weeks since I embarked on this keto experiment. To be honest, I never thought that I would ever be able to sustain this diet for so long. But this time, seeing how I knew I wouldn’t be able to train for a while, I decided that I was going to […]

Keto Choconut Almond Butter Cups

Before you get overly excited and start drooling all over the place at the thought of enjoying a decadent sweet treat, I feel I must warn you right off the bat: these delicious Chocolate Almond Butter Cups aren’t sweet at all. Not even one tiny bit. Hey, that doesn’t mean they’re not heavenly good, though. Only when […]

Fresh Coconut Macaroons

I’ll be honest with you, I barely even got to taste these lovely macaroons. I had half of one when I took the pictures and that was it. Not that I don’t like macaroons, far from there. In fact, I happen to LOVE them. But, let’s just say that they don’t sit all that well with my recent […]

Smooth & Creamy Coconut Butter

I’ve been making my own coconut butter for quite a while now. Truth be told, up until last month, I had never even bought a jar of the ready-made stuff. Then, there was this one day when, I dunno… curiosity got the best of me I guess, and I went ahead and purchased a jar of this […]
