Sweet & Savory Thanksgiving Sweet Potatoes

Greetings, hungry readers! This is Meagan from Eat Something Delicious and I'll be taking over for Kylie today. Kylie and I "met" last year when we noticed how much each of our blogs had in common. We quickly became good friends who connected on more than just our blogging hobbies (although, she's still my go-to person for when I start rambling about Wordpress updates, rich pins, and all the other blogging topics my poor husband used to endure listening to). A Slice of Ky has really grown to be an amazing site and I'm so excited to be sharing one of my recipes here today. A few years ago, all my experiences with sweet potato could be summed up in two dishes: sweet potato casserole (yes, the kind with marshmallows on top)...

Seriously Healthy Fudgsicles

I know what you're thinking. Why am I posting another popsicle recipe when I just posted one last week. Hear me out! I have been testing out lots of recipes in my new popsicle mold lately with plans to post them throughout the rest of the summer, but this one is seriously so good that I could not wait to share it! Although you'd never be able to tell from the taste, these fudgsicles are a far cry from the store-bought version, which is laden with nasty fillers and health-degrading ingredients. This fudgsicle recipe however, made with five simple ingredients, is seriously healthy...

6 Ingredient Guacamole

Tonight was taco night and luckily I had everything on hand to whip up a batch of guacamole. Every time I make guacamole at home, it reminds me that delicious food doesn't have to be complicated. It's amazing how scrumptious this can be with just 6 simple ingredients. Guacamole is such a versatile food, and it's something that never goes to waste if it's in my refrigerator (or freezer!). Tonight we topped our tacos with it (side note: we used these store-bought grain-free tortillas, and they were ah-mazing), but there are so many other ways to use guacamole: Eat it as a snack with a side of vegetables or organic corn chips Use it as a topping on your chicken breast or burger Mix it with leafy greens as a salad...

The Healing Power of Bone Broth

Bone broth is a staple in traditional cultures around the world and for good reason. Not only is it an incredible healing food, but it’s how our ancestors made use of every part of the animal, letting nothing go to waste. Typically the bones of the animal are simmered for a long period of time, which is the differentiating factor between bone broth and regular broth or stock. Hidden away behind the hard outer shell of the bones is a wealth of precious nutrients, which are made available through the process of simmering for 12+ hours. The nutrients that are released have numerous and extensive benefits for our health. Collagen is an integral part of the bone, containing a large supply of amino acids such as...

Turmeric Tea | Health Benefits and Recipe

I made this turmeric tea recently, and several people have asked me for the recipe so I decided to share it with everyone. I made this for myself a few mornings in a row this past week, because I felt a head cold coming on. I can't say for sure, but I believe this turmeric tea has kept my cold at bay. I'm feeling better already! Tumeric is a culinary spice typically used in curry dishes. It has also been used for many years in Indian and Chinese medicine to treat a wide variety of conditions. Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and may be the secret key to long-term health. There is strong evidence which leads us to believe it can prevent illness and disease. Numerous studies suggest curcumin, the main component of turmeric, has...

Crock Pot Paleo Beef Stew

It's meal prep Monday, so I thought I'd share my super easy Crock Pot Paleo Beef Stew recipe with you. Prep it today and cook it tomorrow for a simple yet flavorful weeknight dinner. There's nothing better than coming home from a long day of work to a hot and ready meal. I don't know about you, but the crock pot is my savior during busy weeks! To save time before work, chop your vegetables the night before. This way all you will have to do is brown your meat in the morning and toss everything into the crock pot. If you happen to have the Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System, you can brown the meat right in it on the stovetop setting, and that way you won't even have to dirty another...

Super Bowl Potluck with Eat Something Delicious

Paleo Super Bowl Potluck

The Super Bowl isn’t quite the same for me when my hometown team, The Pittsburgh Steelers, aren’t playing. It seemed like we had a shot to make it to the Super Bowl this year, so it was a pretty big let down when they didn’t. I, however, am still very excited for the big game, because when I think “Super Bowl”, my mind automatically turns to FOOD!  It’s the perfect excuse to gather around the television with good friends and good food, and who doesn’t want to do that? That is exactly why my good friend Meagan and I have decided to create our very own Super Bowl Potluck.

Paleo Hot Chocolate

Paleo Hot Chocolate AltBeing that practically the entire east coast has just been slammed with snow, a paleo hot chocolate would be a great way for us all to bring this weekend to a close. Escape from all that snow, and get warm with this delicious paleo hot chocolate. I used 72% cacao chocolate. Using real chocolate, rather than powdered cocoa, makes this paleo hot chocolate rich, dark and creamy. Just make sure you’re choosing high quality chocolate without gluten, soy and dairy in order to keep it paleo. The coconut sugar gives it a caramel-y sweetness, but feel free to adjust the amount based on your taste. The sea salt and vanilla extract bring out all of the flavor, so don’t even think about skipping these secret ingredients. The coconut whipped cream adds even more creaminess and is the perfect topping to brighten up the rich chocolate. You can cut this paleo hot chocolate recipe in half for an individual serving, or double it for a family of 4. Whether you are snowed in or not, please join me in cozying up tonight with a warm mug full of this delicious paleo hot chocolate!
