Do you follow a Paleo diet? A Mediterranean diet? Something whole food-esque that you don’t really put a name to?
I recently listened to this podcast by Dr. Ruscio where he sites a study showing both the Paleo and the Mediterranean diets have been linked to lower instances of cancer and disease, and lengthen lifespan.
The study showed no preference over Mediterranean versus Paleo – both were equivalent in their efficacy to enhance overall health.
This to say, I find any diet that incorporates fresh, whole foods with an emphasis on adequate quality protein and unsaturated fats to be healing and ideal over a heavily processed diet.
Creamy dairy-free vegan cheese sauce made with only 4 basic ingredients. This nutritious mock cheese sauce is perfect for using on pasta, vegetables, risotto, baked potatoes, and more!
I did a thing.
I made us dairy-free cheese sauce. What in the world are we going to do with a dairy-free vegan cheese sauce, you ask?
What aren’t we going to do with dairy-free cheese sauce is my response.
My vision for making this recipe was to provide an asset for those times you’re craving macaroni and cheese, but want to keep it reasonably healthful, and/or a delicious sauce for pairing with steamed or roasted vegetables. Ever get a hankering for a broccoli-cheddar situation? This is the sauce to make that happen.
In essence, this sauce is perfect for those who love rich and creamy flavors but follow either a dairy-free, vegan, or paleo diet (or simply those who like to limit their dairy intake and prefer sticking with plant-based whole foods).

Creamy tahini spaghetti squash with kale, broccoli, zucchini, and pumpkin seeds. This clean and cozy meal is paleo, vegan, and so satisfying!
I was raised under a carb-loving roof with the mindset that there just had to be something starchy with every meal or else it was considered more of a snack.
When I started eating paleo over seven years ago, my way of easing out of that mindset was through replacing bread, pasta, and white potatoes, with more nutritious sources like root vegetables and winter squash. For me, spaghetti squash has that cozy essence while being fairly low in carbohydrate, and it makes a paleo meal feel more complete.
Plus, it is crazy-versatile (just take a gander through my spaghetti squash archives for all sorts of recipe inspiration).

You’re looking at my newest favorite sauce for all the bowl recipes I consume. As we all know, a well-engineered sauce is what brings all the scrumtrulescence to a big bowl o’ food. It ties the ingredients together into a cohesive unit so you feel as though the meal is a marriage of ingredients rather than random ingredients thrown helter-skelter in a bowl.
One of my priorities when writing my upcoming cookbook, Paleo Power Bowls, was ensuring all my sauces were dialed in. Not only does each bowl recipe come with its own sauce or dressing of some sort, but I added bonus sauces at the end of the book to help change things up and keep things interesting.
