TTC: Fried Chicken Meatballs with Collard Greens

Instant Pot Veggie Broth

Instant Pot Veggie Broth

Did you know thta you can use your veggie scraps to make vegetable broth? I had heard this but it sounded a little intimidating. Again, just like with ghee and bone broth, I was wrong. It’s SUPER easy and even more so with my Instant […]

Leftover Mashed Potato Pancakes (Paleo/SWYPO Whole30/DF/GF Latkes)

Leftover Mashed Potato Pancakes (Paleo/SWYPO Whole30/DF/GF Latkes)

It’s several days after Christmas and my house is full of guests…..and takeout boxes. You see, our visitors have wanted to go out to eat at the local places. It completely makes sense, but has meant that our Christmas leftovers have gone relatively untouched until […]

Instant Pot Turkey Bone Broth (Whole30/Paleo/Gluten Free/Dairy Free)

Instant Pot Turkey Bone Broth (Whole30/Paleo/Gluten Free/Dairy Free)

  As a veteran “Whole-30er,” bone broth is one of those things I just didn’t quite understand. It was way too expensive to buy for our tight budget, and seemed like too much work to make otherwise. Despite three separate rounds of Whole30 (one while […]

Earlier today, when my husband told me what he was going to make for dinner, I knew it needed to be put on here. This recipe is a twist on my mother-in-law’s recipe for a soup/chicken gumbo, which I’m 99% sure was taken off a […]

My Whole30 Reintroduction Plan #SeptemberWhole30

I can’t believe it is day 25 of the September Whole30! Seriously, where the heck did September go? This round went pretty smoothly. I navigated through some family gatherings (shoutout to my uncle for grilling me up a compliant sausage alongside the hotdogs everyone else […]

Last Week of SeptemberWhole30 Prep

Last Week of SeptemberWhole30 Prep

Somehow it is the 24th of September. DAY 24 of Whole30?! Yay! Not that I want to just eat junk, but having a little flexibility will be a welcome change. Typically in the Whole30 timeline, Day 21 is regarded as the day of “I am […]
