Grilled Cauliflower

I was searching through the fridge for an idea for a side to try out with a chicken kebab recipe.  I saw some cauliflower but I hesitated since I was being lazy and I wanted to cook everything on the grill.  Then a flash of brilliance took over.  People roast cauliflower all the time.  Hmmm…

Dairy-Free Spicy Salmon Dip

I love quick and easy meals! Although I called this dairy-free spicy salmon dip, it’s usually my lunch with a bunch of carrots and not a snack or appetizer. Sometimes I go wild and use plantain chips 😛 This salmon dip uses mayo instead of cream cheese or sour cream. I used to be that…

“Peanut Butter” Balls

I love peanut butter and chocolate. However, peanuts are legumes and the paleo diet encourages you to avoid legumes, so that leaves us with almond butter as an alternative.
