Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
“These chicken poppers are gluten free, paleo, AIP, and egg free, while still being delicious enough to fool anyone who regularly eats otherwise!”
“These crispy baked buffalo chicken wings are easy to make, healthy, and ridiculously tasty! They’re paleo and Whole30 compliant and perfect with Whole30 homemade ranch dip.”
“I’m a recent tostones convert. Plantains aren’t something that I’ve ever cooked with-I’m not a fan of the texture of bananas. However, great news, green plantains are not sweet and don’t taste like bananas even though they are a very firm banana. In the spirit of adding new recipes to my culinary repertoire (doesn’t that sound fancy and almost like I know what I’m doing?!), I set out to try them. If you haven’t tried them, now’s the time. These are Whole30 game changer and sure to impress anyone you’re cooking for.”
“If you have any leftovers, which is unlikely, then add it on top of a romaine salad for lunch the next day. yum!”
“Are you craving a big bowl of meaty, fragrant chili, but sweating at the thought of simmering a pot in this heat? Instant Pot Ground Beef Chili to the rescue! Homemade ground beef chili is one of my favorite comfort foods. It’s inexpensive to make, packed with robust flavors, feeds a crowd, and—if you make it in a pressure cooker—keeps your kitchen (relatively) cool. Did I mention it’s Whole30-friendly, too?”
“This 5-Minute Real Guacamole is authentic, with bold and zesty flavors that will dazzle your taste buds. It’s hard to believe something this healthy and delicious is this easy. (Bonus: whole30 and paleo compliant)”
“This is not only a healthier dip, but one that nobody will ever even suspect is dairy-free and made with only real food ingredients! “
“I told my kids why I was calling them Big Mac Potato Skins, because they’ve got all the things we love about McDonald’s… “Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun!” Can you believe they insisted I change the name to Happy Meal Potato Skins after they heard that? Where’s the toy, kids? But whatever we’re calling them, I took all the best parts of the Big Mac and cleaned them up to a Whole30 and Paleo snack, using grass fed ground beef, a homemade special sauce, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes and sesame seeds.”
“I call these “Chicken Fajita Poppers”… poppers because they *pop* while they’re cooking, and they’re the perfect bite size to pop right in your mouth. The flavor is also amazing…. which gives them yet another “pop” factor! And while these are perfect for game day, they also make the ultimate meal prep food. Bake a batch on Sunday, then mix & match them with meals throughout the week. They’re great over a Mexican-style salad, in a cauli-rice burrito bowl topped with salsa & guac, or snacked on solo after a workout.”
“A lighter buffalo meatball recipe that is baked and made with ground turkey, almond flour, spices, and Frank’s RedHot Original hot sauce.”
