Sweet Potato Bites with Candied Bacon

  It is very easy at this time of year for your self-care (including diet) to get derailed. Temptations abound! Parties and family gatherings can be especially tricky to navigate.

Probiotic Spinach Artichoke Dip

  Since corn is avoided in the elimination phase of the Autoimmune Protocol, it can be hard to get a source of artichoke hearts (commercially jarred or canned varieties use corn in the form of citric acid as a preservative).

This season makes me want to curl up inside with a warm blanket and read a book while the smells from my slow cooker fill the house. There is just nothing that beats the aromas from a ...
