Smoked Salmon Blackberry Salad

If ever there were a quick, fancy pants salad! Each time I’ve made this, I’ve had it for breakfast (and the kids split the other half). It’s light, flavorful, and satisfying all at once. Do you, boo. The smoked salmon I use is homesmoked. Don’t hate me. BUT you could also substitute a salmon that was grilled – even better… Read more →

Salmon Apple Salad

Salmon Apple Salad

I’ll let you in on a little secret. Fish salad is my method of sneaking avocado on Luv’s plate. She isn’t fond of avocado on its own. While we don’t force the kids to eat foods, we do encourage them to try a few bites of what they’re served. And if that doesn’t work, I try making that food a… Read more →

Sweet Potato & Mango Salad

AIP Sweet Potato and Mango Salad

It had been a few years since I made this salad. But it all came rushing back to me when I was taking stock of what ingredients I had and sifted through the possibilities. Sweet potatoes, onions, mangos, cilantro, avocado… Wait. What was that sweet potato salad I’ve made before? I threw what combinations I could remember together for breakfast… Read more →

Steak Salad with Tarragon Vinaigrette

I’ll prep and make mushrooms for The Mister and Luv without complaint. They love them. Luv recently asked me why I don’t eat them. She actually tried to insinuate that I should like them because I like “all the foods”.

Radish Mango Salad

Radish Mango Salad

I’ve made sure to take full advantage of radishes at our co-op, and more recently the farmers market. When I get home, I cut off the radish greens, wash and dry them, and I add the greens in salads or a batch of pesto. The radishes, I wash and store in the crisper in my fridge – they’ll keep for… Read more →

Fish Taco Salad with Garlic Lime Vinaigrette & Mango Salsa

Long ago, before littles, we would pick up fish tacos from… I don’t even remember the name of the restaurant now. It has been THAT long.

Anyway, they were freaking good. No doubt, made with all sorts of horrible GMO corn, canola oil devil’s work, and who knows what else was lurking in them. So when I found myself craving those fish tacos, I knew I had to give it a shot in salad form.

Organic, paleo, and autoimmune protocol compliant. Totally doable. Right?

Roasted Golden Beet Salad

Update: I’ve since welcomed red beets back into my kitchen and cook with them weekly. But there was a time, I didn’t like red beets.

I have a reason for not cooking with red beets. Of course. Years ago, while I was pregnant with Bugsy, I made a chocolate beet cake {obviously this was before I changed how I ate}. The entire time it cooked, all I could smell was earth. While it cooled? All I could smell was earth. When I sliced it? I smelled earth. I could not bring myself to try it. The Mister thought it was the best. cake. ever. The next day, he insisted I try it, I did… and nearly knocked him over as I ran to spit it out. Suffice to say, I have not eaten or cooked a red beet since.

But considering I have challenged myself to try so many new foods; I decided to give the lighter, less offensive looking beet a try. Maybe I will work up enough gusto to try a red beet. But for now?

Baby steps with the golden beets.
