I’m writing this from our new house in Long Beach, CA, and I couldn’t be happier! This house is so comfortable and it’s everything I’m looking for in a home: lots of natural light, huge backyard, and hardwood floors! Oh, and we also have a gas stove that I’m very excited about. Our last place had an electric one and I did not love it.
Needless to say, this past week has been a whirlwind, with getting things out of storage and getting settled into our new home. However, it’s so nice to finally have a place to call home, and I’m eager to get back to work again.
Today’s recipe is paleo creamed spinach, and I’m kinda obsessed. I love dishes that make you eat a ton of veggies by wilting them down like crazy, and this recipe does just that. Especially when they are doused in a heaping amount of healthy fat!
This creamed spinach is thickened with coconut milk and tapioca starch, and you wouldn’t even know that you are missing the dairy! I couldn’t stop eating this because it was so delicious.
If you need a way to fit in plenty of greens, or want to make a spinach dish that your kids will enjoy, I hope try out this creamed spinach. It’ll have you fall in love with spinach all over again!
Hello from LA! We are finally at our final destination on our Pacific Coast Highway road trip and I’m seriously loving all the palm trees, sunshine, and the warm weather. I’d rather not got back to NorCal but we’ll be heading back on January 1st. At least that’s the plan for now.
I also plan to do a blog post on this trip with my mom and how we handled being on an AIP diet for almost 2 weeks while on the road, so stay tuned! In the meantime, I’m excited to share this delicious daikon radish fries with you. These are AIP as well, and I made them so my mom and I can enjoy them together.
If you are even a little bit normal, fries are the best, most addicting things ever. I can go to town on them, but I don’t love the crappy oils that they cook them in at restaurants and I can feel the brain fog afterwards. So I try to make them at home often, and these daikon radish fries came together the other day when I had a giant daikon radish leftover after making my slow cooker Korean short ribs.
If they look slightly burnt, that’s all good. That just means they crisped up nicely and will give that delicious crunch. My only complaint was that I didn’t make enough! These were dangerously addicting and were gone in no time. My mom couldn’t stop raving about how good they were.
If you are looking for a tasty and addicting fries recipes that’s healthy and lower in carbs, you need to make these daikon radish fries because they are awesome!
Happy Monday! It’s been raining nonstop here. It’s quite annoying but I’ve actually liked that I had an excuse to lounge at home and basically relax and do nothing over the weekend. It was much needed! However, I do miss the sunshine and I’m VERY looking forward to spending Thanksgiving in Hawaii this year. Bring on the beaches!!
Before leaving, I wanted to share a last minute Thanksgiving recipe that’s so simple and easy to make. If you love sweet potato casserole, I think you’ll like this one! This candied pecan loaded sweet potatoes recipe has the same flavors as a sweet potato casserole, but takes out the labor of blending up the sweet potatoes. I’m all about doing less work than I have to (AND creating less dishes) on Thanksgiving with so many things going on if you are hosting.
I find that sweet potatoes are plenty sweet on their own so I do not like to add more sugar to it, as what usually happens in a traditional sweet potato casserole. There are usually 6 different kinds of pies at the dessert table waiting for you on Thanksgiving, so why load up on excess sugar during your meal? The candied pecans in this recipe adds just enough sweetness to really enhance the flavors of the sweet potatoes, and for me, it honestly felt like I was eating dessert!
If you are looking for a fun and different take on sweet potato casserole on Thanksgiving, I highly recommend this recipe because it’s soooooo delicious. Just try it out and let me know!
