Ming Takes Her Dinner Very Seriously


Ming Waiting for her Dinner Ming, Ming is a typical Pug.  She loves her food!  I feed her a very nutrient dense, clean, meat based diet.  She also loves fruit as occasional treats and carrots.  She is my Paleo Pug.  She is two years old, and when my husband gave her to me for Christmas when she was a puppy, she fit in the palm of my hand.  I am her person.  It is humbling and infinitely wonderful to be loved with such devotion by Ming.  I want her to live a long, long life and be healthy as she ages.  She loves chicken, and when you say “chicken”  her eyes get very large and she tilts her head to the side listening intently. It is a buzz word for her as well as “liver”.  When I have a crock pot of chicken bone broth going in the house she hangs around the pot just to smell it.  Pugs have a tendency to the plump side, so she walks every day with me and we keep her treats small.  In this photo, Ming is waiting patiently, but seriously, for her dinner.

Easy Recipe: Meatballs with Tangy Cilantro-Chive Sauce


Lately I have been craving lamb.  I think my body may need more zinc and selenium. You can get both in lamb.  Here is a new recipe from Diane Sanfilippo, of Balanced Bites and Author of Practical Paleo and The 21 Day Sugar Detox books using ground lamb.  I love Diane’s Easy and Nourishing recipes. They get my family fed and me out of the kitchen to play! Go here to get the recipe and see photos of the meatballs.

Won’t Miss a Thing Ranch Dressing!


Won't Miss A Thing Ranch!

Won’t Miss A Thing Ranch!

 Garlic Infused Oil and Chives makes this dressing Rock!  Garlic is a FodMap and not allowed on a low FodMap diet, but garlic Infused oil is allowed, and it is a fantastic replacement.  I buy my oil from Fustini’s Oils online.  You can find it at local oil and vinegar shops. The dressing is creamy, thick and tangy. My daughters (age 11 and 13)  prefer it over any store bought versions.  So here it is, I hope you love it! Let me know!

Makes: 1 1/4 Cups

  • 1 Cup Paleo mayonnaise, or commercial sweetened with honey
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Garlic Infused Oil
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar (no sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper

Add all the ingredients into a bowl, whisk until fully incorporated and enjoy! Mmmmm! So good!

 

Recovering From Digestive Distress


My name is Sam, and I am starting a blog to record all the yummy things that can be created even though you might be on a restricted diet.  I have been eating a Paleo diet for a year and a half  and now need to tweak it into a SCD/Low FodMap lifestyle.  I was diagnosed with SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) recently after years of digestive problems.  I am working with my doctor and a registered dietitian to heal, and still need and want to make and eat delicious food…..I am a foodie….. and will be preparing food that doesn’t make me or my family feel like they are missing anything.  My goal is to create recipes that get me out of the kitchen and enjoying my friends, family, parties, nourish, heal and make me glow with health and still have people tell me what a fantastic cook I am!  Stay tuned, I am here to help us!  I also have a  quirky pug named, Ming Ming, whom I love to share stories about.
