Easy Recipe: Weeknight Pot Roast

Diane Sanfilippo BEEF, PORK, & LAMB 6 Comments

Easy Recipe: Grain-free Chicken Parmigiana

Diane Sanfilippo CHICKEN & TURKEY 20 Comments

You may be wondering how or why I decided to develop this Paleo-friendly chicken parm recipe… Well, after years of eating Paleo and being one of those folks who occasionally would use almond flour in place of wheat flour, my once walnut-only allergy developed further into an all-nut allergy.

This recipe is really easy to modify by adding any type of fruit or berries you like, but I wanted to create a sweetener-free, 21-Day Sugar Detox-friendly version …
