Paleo Chicken Piccata - chicken thighs with a delicious lemon and caper sauce, served over spaghetti squash. You're going to love this healthier version of the classic!

This Paleo Chicken Piccata recipe was originally published on Food Fanatic which is why I’m talking about spring like it’s not the middle of April. This recipe is a year round favorite though so add it to your dinner rotation soon!

We are all ready for spring now, right?

I’m so done with the heavy stews and slow cooker meals, and I’m ready for light and fresh. Chicken piccata is one of my favorite spring time meals – it just screams spring.

Fresh lemon juice and so much green on top? Definitely the kind of meal to transition to spring with.

This paleo version is so close to the original. The only thing you really have to remove is the butter and wine.

So, coconut oil instead of the butter – and if you enjoy ghee in your diet, I highly recommend using that, but the coconut oil is just as delicious. In place of the wine, I used full fat coconut milk which also adds a little richness and creaminess that you may miss since you’re skipping the butter.

Make sure you get a canned coconut milk that’s only ingredients are coconut milk, water, and guar gum.

And it will probably be separated when you open it, so I usually just quickly throw it in the blender to get everything combined.

You don’t have to miss out on your favorite childhood breakfast just because you’re paleo! Paleo Eggs in a Basket is made with spaghetti squash instead of the hashbrowns and you may love it even more than the original!

I’m doing that thing where I find a way to put spaghetti squash into every meal again.

I go through such weird stages with spaghetti squash. I haven’t cooked one in months but now it’s all I can think about and I’m roasting several a week.

I think I’ve had it in every single meal I’ve had for the last week.

These Paleo Eggs in a Nest are my current favorite way to have it and I wish I could say I’m only having it once a day at breakfast time but there have been days when I’ve made it 3 times. It’s becoming a problem.

It’s just so easy and so fast and so good for you!

Easy, healthy, and delicious Paleo Butternut Squash and Bacon Soup is the perfect way to warm up on a winter day.

Paleo Butternut Squash and Bacon Soup  - easy, healthy, and delicious soup that's perfect for a cold winter day.

Originally shared on Food Fanatic in November 2017. You can find this Paleo Butternut Squash and Bacon Soup and many others over there!

I have fallen into the routine of making butternut squash soup every single night after the kids are in bed. And then the next day I have soup for breakfast and lunch and then I’m sad when dinner rolls around and there is no more soup left.

Is it possible to be addicted to butternut squash soup?

I literally panicked when I walked into the grocery store the other day to find that they were out of all squash but spaghetti squash. I can’t make a creamy soup with spaghetti squash.

I do several different versions of butternut squash soup (like this coconut curry one or this one with crab!) and most nights I’m just kind of throwing whatever I find in the fridge in. You can’t really go wrong when it comes to a soup like this.

Hi guys.

Should we talk about resolutions? I love a new year and a fresh start and setting up intentions and goals. My current resolution list is just a bunch of tiny things that take up 3 pages of a google doc. They’re mostly like “Quit being super cheap and spend the $15 a month on Audible because you love listening to books while you cook”. Nothing life changing. Just little things that I hope will ultimately add up to make be a better person, better mom, better business woman over time.

I also tend to start eating healthier and cleaner but I think it’s more just getting back to normal. Because from Halloween to New Years, we all indulge a little more than usual, right? It’s less a resolution and more just getting back to what we were doing before we had bags and bags of tiny candy bars in our house at all times.  Click for the full recipe

First post of 2018!

How was New Years? I hope it was safe and fun and you spent it with the people you love.

The boyfriend, who was supposed to be out of town until later this week, surprised me and showed up yesterday afternoon so we got to watch the ball drop together and toast at midnight and all those obnoxious couple things. This was our first New Years together so I’m happy we got to be together.

And oh my gosh, you guys. It snowed last night! Like, actual snow.
