Gluten-Free Instant Pot Mongolian Beef

Well I’ve officially started cooking a few meals here and there with my instant pot, and one of the ones I’ve been dying to try is Mongolian Beef.  Mongolian beef is hard for me to eat because it’s typically has gluten in it and is loaded in sugar ( you might as well eat a Snickers bar).   I scoured the internet to find something, but there wasn’t anything out there.  SO I decided to make my own. What you’ll Need:…

Keto Chocolate Mint Protein Shake

One thing that I’ve noticed is the surge of nut-based protein drinks.  The protein content seems to continuously include better quality protein. However, with the increased protein comes increased sugar.   I tend to make those nut-milk based protein shakes at home and take them with me everywhere.  I do this so I can control the sugar content in it.  One of my favorites to make is my chocolate mint protein shake.  It includes a whopping 21g of protein and NO…

Keto Pumpkin Cashew Chocolate Cups

With the plethora of sweets that are about to come upon us this holiday season, I wanted to make something that could help minimize the sugar in-take.   AND especially for someone like me who can’t really eat pumpkin pie (it’s super rare to find a GOOD gluten-free pumpkin pie) this is such a great alternative.  The added bonus is that it has NO SUGAR!  Oh, and I also put in a little bit of collagen so technically you will enjoy…

ALOVE-ly Greek Dish!

I always like to explore new things that are outside of my comfort zone, and cooking is no different. Exploring different options for recipes are what I’m known for. I usually have to modify a good percentage of them due to some of my food sensitivities; and one dish I’ve always wanted to make was a good old fashioned Greek meal! I’m Egyptian, so there is a lot of overlap with the Mediterranean foods, but the tastes differ slightly.  …

Mini Cashew Butter Chocolate Cups

The chocoholic has struck again, and this time it’s with cashew butter chocolate cups!  Since I’ve been on my way to healing my leaky gut, I’ve had to stay away from peanut butter. I have no reaction to it what-so-ever, but the nutritionist felt it would be best as it can sometimes be a cross-reactive food. SO, of course I took to the web and found a wonderful recipe that I modified, and am bringing it to you courtesy of…

4 Ingredient Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Soy-Free Chocolate Cake

My name is Saarah and I am a chocoholic.  Like seriously.  I have to have chocolate once a day.  But it’s from a plant, so it must be healthy, right? There are so many health benefits from cocoa such as decreased cholesterol, improved blood vessel health, high in antioxidants, and much more.  However finding the right chocolate that isn’t just going to clog up your arteries can sometimes be difficult to come by.  Particularly when chocolate can be laced with…

Get Shredded…with Chicken (Recipe)

Trying to find clean eats for you and the family can be a daunting task sometimes…especially when we’re all pressed for time.  One recipe that I always like to make time and time again is shredded chicken.  Why? Because you can make it with any piece of chicken that you get from the market (except ground of course) AND you can make a bunch to last you for the week. Shredded chicken is great because you can put it on…
