Easy Dairy Free Cauliflower Mac and Cheese {vegan + paleo}

YOU. GUYS.

Easy dairy free cauliflower mac and cheese is in the HOUSE and it has got me all 😭 over here cuz I’m so excited to share it with you.

Because a good recipe for mac and cheese is never something you should keep to yourself.

I mean, you can MAKE mac and cheese and keep it for yourself – that’s pretty standard practice around our house. But the recipe, well that’s something that get’s better the more you spread around the cheesy-comfort-in-a-bowl LOVE.

Easy dairy free cauliflower mac and cheese is the healthiest and most delicious way to satisfy your comfort food cravings without any regrets!

I have to be honest with you, this is not reaaaaal mac and cheese. Like the kind with noodles and actual cheese. But I’m guessing you already figured that out cuz you guys are smart like that.

I just knew you would get understand where I’m going with this one 😉

This is a cauliflower dish dressed up like mac and cheese for those days when you just really neeeeeed some comfort food in your life, but wanna keep it healthy and guilt free.

And also spoiler alert – the sauce doesn’t taste exactly like cheese, really it’s more reminiscent of cheese. But I’m pretty sure it’s about as cheesy as you can get without being actual cheese. And it does satisfy exactly the same thing that real cheese does.

Is that weird? Maybe. Awesome? Absolutely.

Especially when draped over tenderly steamed cauliflower and loaded up into a bowl for all the comfort and zero regret.

Like literally none. Says the girl who has eaten three (small…ish) bowls of it in one sitting.

This is, essentially, a mac and cheese for everyone.

My dairy free / gluten free / keto / paleo / vegan / health minded peeps – I have definitely got you covered with this one.

😍😍😍

The Ultimate Bunless Burger {paleo + gluten free}

Pretty sure your Wednesday dinner NEEDS this ultimate bunless burger!

The ultimate bunless burger! For those nights when you just NEED a burger in your life. Paleo, guilt free, and super satisfying.
 
I mean, how excited would you be about dinner tonight if this ⬆️ is what you were coming home to?

Especially if it’s as easy as forming some patties, seasoning ’em, searing ’em and loading ’em up with your favorite toppings.

The ultimate bunless burger! For those nights when you just NEED a burger in your life. Paleo, guilt free, and super satisfying.
 
There’s something about a burger that is so dang comforting and familiar. Perfect October food. Esp when the rain is coming down like it has been in Seattle. Gray skies are in full effect around here.

I have to say – I reaaaally really missed burgers when I gave up gluten and transitioned to a mostly paleo diet.

Obviously there’s gluten free (and even grain free) bun options out there for those who can no longer enjoy fluffy brioche rolls – (😭 yes I do still mourn the loss of these foods from time to time! I think that’s perfectly okay, and even healthy. Recognizing the weight of the thing that you’re giving up for health benefits has the ability to further strengthen your resolve and commitment to your positive lifestyle choices! They definitely have the ability to exist simultaneously and work in direct relation to each other), but it did take me awhile to find the same joy in them as I used to find in a classic OG burger.

Occasionally I do splurge in the gluten free bread option for a burger, but more often than not, I choose the bunless or lettuce wrapped option. I just FEEL better when I don’t have all those carbs added to an already indulgent meal.

This ultimate bunless burger = all the flavors of a classic burger and none of that heavy stomach feeling that can really weigh you down

 

AKA a guilt free win/win.

And now I’m here to tell you that this bunless burger will rescue you from any remaining bun-missing feels.

And that you can easily make it at home.

And that I SWEAR you won’t even think about what’s missing when you cut that first bite of this ultimate bunless burger, runny egg yolk and all.

Bulletproof pumpkin pie spice latte! A perfectly indulgent and healthy way to get in the spirit of fall and supercharge your morning coffee routine.
 
First, let’s talk bulletproof coffee.

Are you guys on the train yet? If not, boy are you in for a lovely surprise.

Creamy, indulgent, full of healthy fats, and the perfect fuel to start your day off right.

Here’s what you’ll LOVE about bulletproof coffee:

 

  • The solid boost of energy that it gives you. One cup and your morning energy will feel stable and steady all the way until your first meal of the day.
  • The indulgence of a rich, creamy coffee that gets more nourishing fat into your diet.
  • An increased level of mental clarity – our brains are made up of about 60% fat, saturated fat being one of the main components of brain cells, making healthy fats an important part of keeping them functioning at a high level.

I’ve been bulletproofing my mornings for at least a couple of years, but only recently did I start playing around with a variety of flavors to keep things interesting. I have a good solid 6 or so that I rotate to keep things fresh, and.. get excited! I’m planning on sharing them all with you over the next few months 🙌🏼

Bulletproof coffee = really good.

Bulletproof coffee + fun flavor combos = infinitely better.
