Rosemary & Garlic Roasted Butternut Squash (AIP)

Every time I buy a butternut squash from the grocery store, the person checking me out says "what do you do with these?!" I have been enjoying roasted butternut squash for so long, that it baffles me that there are people that have never tried it. Like other vegetables, butternut squash takes on a very sweet flavor when roasted. It has such a warm flavor that can be paired with an array of flavor and spices.  It also an incredibly easy side dish to whip up in a jiffy.

(PALEO, GAPS, RAW) Superfood {NO-GRAIN}OLA Crunch

My lovely husband did something wonderful this week; he ordered a whole bunch of superfoods from Earth Shift Products (website HERE) for us!! What a dandy deed that was. He's should be called "The Primitive Breadwinner". Anyhow, I'm stoked. I immediately started dreaming up recipes, and this turned out far better than I imagined it would. It's a great source of protein- and chock full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber! I have provided links to the exact ingredients I used, so you can learn more about each ingredient. Earth Shift Products provides excellent nutritional information about their products.

First of all, I would like to clear something up about my recipes. All of the recipes here are from my own imagination. If I am inspired my someone else's recipe, I will let you know- and provide a link to their blog! This recipe was a creation of my own. So, I pretty much just made it up as I went along. I hope that my recipes can inspire you to get in your kitchen and get creative. Most of my recipes don't have to be followed to the exact measurement or ingredient list. For this recipe, the cacao powder & nibs, goji's, and mulberry's are add-in's. If you don't have them, flavor it with what you do have- vanilla, almonds, raisins, chocolate chips, walnuts, cinnamon, etc.

Antioxidant Blast Smoothie (Toddler Approved!)

Before I started my "real food" journey, I had no idea what antioxidants were- but I knew they were good. I think that is the case for most people. "A great source of antioxidants" is printed in bold lettering on the packaging of healthy products, so it must be good. So, what the heck is an antioxidant? what does it do? and why is good for us?

Frozen Yogurt (RAW, SCD)

I've been contemplating this recipe for some time, and finally decided to go for it. Needless to say, this will be a staple in my freezer from now on. If you're on the SCD, you are probably really missing ice-cream! My husband has been eating ice-cream fairly often, and it was starting to become near impossible to fight the urge to attack him and scarf down a few bites. I've pretty much mastered the art of making SCD yogurt, so I've been experimenting with different recipes it can be used in. If you haven't already, check out my (RAW) SCD Goat Yogurt recipe; that's what I used to makes these glorious golden scoops of goodness.

What you'll need to make this yummy stuff:

Classic Macaroons (Paleo, SCD)

Who doesn't like a good macaroon? Their quick, easy, and so delicious. It was literally hard for me to photograph these without eating them all. My daughter was actually hovering over them while I was taking pictures, waiting for a chance to sneak one. I really like recipes that are versatile, and this one definitely is. The flavor combinations and add-ins for macaroons are non-exhaustive. I made these two ways, to inspire you to try your own add-ins.

I always have the ingredients to make these cookies, and it's likely you do to.  So, go ahead- check your pantry!
