Image best-gluten-free-scones.jpg

Has school started again at your house? I’m torn between not wanting summer to end, and eagerly anticipating fall vibes. Ashley is back in her severe special needs classroom, they start mid-August here in SoCal. As I’ve said before, she adores it. And Ginger and Zoe will be at the public homeschool charter school in September, where Zoe has been for the last two years. It’s 2 days a week at the center, the other 3 days at home. Read more

Ever since I created my best ever paleo pancakes (back in March of 2014) you guys have been asking me for a nut-free option, and here it is! These gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, paleo pancakes taste almost identical to my original pancakes! They’re just as fluffy and delicious! I can’t wait for you to make them! I make these pancakes and much more with ingredients from (they have way more than just nuts!). Their prices Read more

I’ve been admiring some really gorgeous smoothie bowls lately on Instagram. They make me hungry! And I have one of my own coming up soon, but in the mean time I have this super easy instant ice cream for you! It’s dairy-free of course, and full of nutrition. I use fresh young coconut and very little sweetener to make this instant ice cream. All you have to do ahead is make sure that you have ice and that you freeze some coconut milk Read more

Homemade Cashew Butter

Image homemade-cashew-butter.jpg

Have you ever made your own nut butter? It’s so easy!!! Cashew butter is my faaaaavorite, because cashews aren’t as expensive as say macadamia nuts, and because they have a mild enough flavor that cashew butter goes great with everything. What exactly IS everything, you say? Well, I have a post coming up next which uses cashew butter, so I’ll leave that as a surprise for you and you may be surprised to hear that my coffee is Read more

Dairy-free Smoothie Bowls with CoYo Coconut Yogurt

Image CoYo-yogurt-1.jpg

I am beyond excited to be partnering with my favorite dairy-free yogurt company, COYO! I first tried COYO coconut yogurt at ExpoWest a little over a year ago, and I was in love. COYO is made of coconut cream WITHOUT added sugar. It comes in plain and fruit sweetened only. Do you know how rare that is in the dairy-free yogurt scene?! It’s completely unheard of. And COYO is delicious!! It’s delicious because it’s full of Read more

Sunflower Seed Bread

Image Gluten-free-Egg-free-Sunflower-Seed-Bread.jpg

I love when I can combine a sponsored post with a recipe that you’ve been asking me for! Since I confessed that I’m not currently tolerating eggs or almond flour, I’ve had a flood of requests for recipes that are free of those two ingredients. It seems I’m not the only one out there who is going through this. So when asked me to partner with them, it was perfect! has FANTASTIC prices, and an amazing Read more

Dairy-Free Chocolate Coconut Butter

Image dairy-free-chocolate-sauce.jpg

My kids eat butter-bowls (as I call them) like this ALL the time. In the Feeding Kids / Kids’ Favorites section of my book, Easy Paleo Meals I explain how mixing almond butter or sunbutter with water, cocoa or carob (whichever they prefer), a pinch of salt, and a tiny bit of honey is one of my kids’ favorite things to eat, AND it’s a great way to get more good fat, protein, antioxidants, and vitamins into them! This butter-bowl Read more

Ham and Sweet Potato Egg Muffins

Image ham-and-sweet-potato-egg-muffins-1024x683.jpg

Egg muffins are like a personal-sized frittata, a traditional Italian dish that is a cross between an omelet and a crustless quiche.  What’s awesome about egg muffins (besides the fact that they’re super tasty!) is that they can easily be made ahead for quick and nutritious breakfasts the whole week long. This version uses smoked uncured ham to up the protein and also sneaks in some nutrient-dense veggies for a balanced breakfast!  I Read more

Pumpkin Crumb Pancakes

Image IMG_0294.jpg

Pancakes are one of those paleo items that actually got me on board with paleo. But paleo pancakes were A LOT different almost 6 years ago. They were dry or eggy or banana-y, but they did the job…with lots of maple syrup on top. But paleo pancakes have evolved and these may be my favorite so far. I’ve made so many in the past, both on my website and in my newest cookbook, but these may shine the brightest. And they are scream Read more

5 Ingredient Butternut Squash & Sage Breakfast Casserole

Image IMG_8763.jpg

It’s very interesting working on the internet because you see people’s personalities shift throughout the year. The first of the year, everyone is happy and positive and ready to conquer the world. Spring is still pretty good, but you get a few stragglers who tend to complain about something that is upsetting them. Summer is slow because people are on vacation and concentrating on fun activities. But then fall comes around and all the Read more

Dairy-Free Smoothie Bowl

Image smoothiebowl.jpg

I know smoothie bowls are super in right now, but I’ve been drinking my smoothies with a (stainless steel) straw for so long now that I don’t think I ever would have tried a smoothie bowl if it hadn’t been for Spunky Ginger. No, my 5 year old isn’t hip to trends, she thought of eating her smoothie in a bowl all by herself.  To tell you the truth, I tried to talk her out of it at first. But what’s the point in Read more

I survived! And the menu :)

Image q

The last 7 weeks have been exhausting. Just a fact. Adjusting to a new schedule is hard. Especially when you liked the old one. The stress showed up in my complexion like never before, yuck! But, to look on the bright side, I'm halfway through my "fall" semester! So, needless to say, I'm ready for cooler weather because we didn't really do many summery things these past few weeks. The kids are back in school now. I have a little breather Read more

Paleo Matcha Latte and Matcha Bubble Tea

Image matcha-latte-3WM-200x147.jpg

As much as I appreciate a good cup of coffee, I’ve always preferred teas and herbal infusions. Especially in the summer, they just seem lighter and, when iced, more refreshing. Sometimes, though, I feel like having something a bit more substantial or more like a dessert. Even if you avoid dairy, you can still enjoy the […] The post Paleo Matcha Latte and Matcha Bubble Tea appeared first on Rubies & Radishes. SOURCE: Rubies & Read more

Caramel Mocha Frappe

Image IMG_4765-768x512.jpg

I think I’m recovered from Vegas. I think. I’ve still been going to bed earlier and sleeping in later then I feel like my body is broken, but I think it’s almost over. It’s crazy what lack of sleep can do to you. But those Vegas stories will have to wait until tomorrow. Because it’s Bachelorette recap tiiiiiiiime! Honestly, my Vegas trip has better stories than the Monday night episode, but those stories will be Read more

Beets and Berries Smoothie

Hit the farmer’s market in the early spring and summer, and you’ll find an abundance of beets, as well as bright red strawberries. Together, these blend up beautifully for a gorgeously hued, healthy drink that tastes as good as it looks. Full of antioxidants and healthy fats, this makes the perfect quick breakfast. Be careful when handling beets; they will stain anything they touch. The post Beets and Berries Smoothie appeared first on Paleo Read more

Cheap and Good: Protein Coffee

Image q

I don't like the word cheap. I don't want to eat cheap food, I associate that with low quality. I don't think this recipe is cheap in that sense. So let's use budget-minded. For those that want to be budget-minded in the world of protein powders, I feel like it is is a good choice.First know, I have never been a big supplement person. I want to eat real food and get what I need from that. Idealist much? But I started looking into protein powders Read more

Fried Quinoa Cakes

Image fried-quinoa-cake-2.jpg

Quinoa. I remember the first time I asked where it was in Whole Foods (in 2005) and I pronounced it the way that it looks. “You mean, ‘keen-wah’?” the store worker asked me. Oops. Yes, that. We were not instant fans of quinoa. I think without LOTS of seasoning it doesn’t taste very good. But with say fresh mint leaves, lemon juice, olive oil, pineapple chunks, dried cranberries, salt, pepper, and roasted nuts, it can Read more


Hellooooooooooooooo! (Mrs. Doubtfire style)I am back from a 3 week blogging hiatus due to a change in school schedule (3 week clinical assignment)...Having brand new daily routine sure messes with me. It was actually really good once I got used to it, but of course, now that I got used to it, it's back to normal! That's life I guess.Last week the kids were at their grandparents' house and so I bought lots of fresh asparagus because it was on sale Read more
