Savory Salmon Cakes

Savory Salmon Cakes

If I were going to make a recipe to impress someone, it might be these savory salmon cakes. Forget healthy (and they are), these salmon cakes are just so crazy good.  All the flavor, great texture, super satisfying. And yeah, super good for you, too. One of salmon's many health benefits is that it's loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce depression and inflammation. So if you're recovering from a broken heart, are super stressed, or just feeling kind of blah, eat this delicious mood boosting meal.  Less inflammation also means you will feel better, mind and body. I've subbed almond flour for the usual wheat flour, so they're super low glycemic, gluten free, and protein-packed, which is great for balanced blood sugar. Stable blood sugar = a more stable mood (no hangries, please and thank you) and also a flat tummy. 

Paleo Zucchini Fritters (You won't miss the gluten and dairy)

Paleo Zucchini Fritters (You won't miss the gluten and dairy)

These gluten-free and dairy-free zucchini fritters are super delicious, and a great way to use up some of that extra zucchini you may be stockpiling like I am. How did zucchini get a bad rap, by the way? It's so freaking versatile, and one of my favorite summer veggies.  

Simple Homemade Coconut Milk: 2 Ways

Simple Homemade Coconut Milk: 2 Ways

Homemade coconut milk is one of those, "Why didn't I know about this?" kinds of recipes. (And it's really more of just a series of a few steps than a recipe). I used to buy ready-to-drink coconut milk at the grocery store - you know, the kind that comes in a carton like regular cow's milk.  I even found one that was unsweetened, but it still had all kinds of preservatives and fillers, like carageenan (the research on carageenan is inconclusive, but suggests it may cause gastrointestinal distress, and we don't want that), and even more than that, it just didn't taste that good!  Enter these recipes. They come together in minutes, are cheaper than buying ready-to-drink coconut milk, you control what goes in it, and they taste better! Win!
