Instant Pot - Oxtail Ragu - Paleo + Whole30

Instant Pot Oxtail Ragu

The deeply, spiced aroma of braised oxtail transports me back to Italy instantly.  In Italy, Coda alla Vaccinara is made into a stew that eats like a sauce, traditionally made in Rome.  The rich oxtail spiced with cinnamon and juniper just begs to be eaten with a big bowl of pasta, creamy polenta or zucchini noodles, if you’re paleo-ish like we are.

Paleo Jalapeno Poppers with Cashew Cream Cheese

Paleo Jalapeno Poppers with Cashew Cream Cheese

I looooooove ooey gooey cream cheese filled, bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers.  I would choose them over the fanciest of appetizers any day of the week. Except for one thing. The cheese. It doesn’t make me feel great. Cue the sad music. When  I noticed cashew cream ‘cheese’ popping up in cheese aisles all over the place, my very first thought was, yaaaas! paleo jalapeno poppers!  Read more

Hi, I’m Leslie-Anne – A chef and former carb addict sharing my “paleo-ish” lifestyle through my love of cooking!

I know what it’s like to struggle with healthy eating. In 2013, after completing the Whole30, I lost about 60 lbs, completely changed my relationship with food and discovered that the paleo style of eating really worked for me. I realized that making small dietary changes could improve my health fairly easily and I couldn’t stop preaching the paleo-love to all my friends.

I like to think of my paleo approach as paleo-ish. I am not a zealot – I love an occasional crusty slice of sourdough bread as much as I can get down with a bowl of zoodles and meatballs. For me, this paleo-ish thing is all about moderation and eating in a style that makes me feel vibrant and healthy.
