When I first started eating Paleo and blogging way back in 2013 (it feels so long ago!) I was lucky enough to have access to a wonderfully large kitchen at my parent’s house as well as tons of free time since it was summer break. Cooking and blogging became my hobby and I poured all of my free time and energy into it. Since the birth of Primal Bites that summer, I have lived in 3 different dorms/apartments in Scotland and New York City. Each year, my kitchen has progressively shrunk, as has my amount of free time. Over this time, I have figured out how to make a Paleo(ish) lifestyle work with the hectic schedule, budget, space and time constraints of a full time student. A lot of my peers express awe and wonder at how I manage to prep and cook the majority of my meals, but I firmly believe that I’m no superwoman—with the right tips, resources, recipes and a friendly nudge in the right direction, anyone can make Paleo work for them.

It took me a long time to settle into a routine and figure out how to batch cook, what products I always need on hand in my pantry, and how to whip up a delicious and nutritionally well-rounded meal in a pinch. So the mission for my new eCookbook, Paleo in a Pinch, is to offer the knowledge I gained from my months/years of trial-and-error, as well as to share oodles of totally new recipes that will realistically fit into your busy schedules. Whether you’re a student, stay at home mom or dad, or a 9-5er, I hope Paleo in a Pinch will help you and your loved ones maintain a nutritious and flavorful diet without any fuss!

Paleo in a Pinch will be available for purchase here beginning this Thursday November 5th. In the mean time, I wanted to share this super allergen friendly Paleo in a Pinch recipe! These Plantain English Muffins are perfect to have on hand for quick breakfast sandwiches. The first variation is nut-free and the second variation is both nut-free and egg-free!

Plantain English Muffins



  1. Preheat your oven to 375 F. Grease 2-4 (depending on which variation you choose) ramekins, mason jars or oven safe mugs. If you don’t have either of those, you can use a muffin tin but they won’t be English muffins anymore.
  2. Roughly chop the plantains, and place in a food processor or blender with the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour batter evenly amongst the greased ramekins. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
  4. Let cool slightly. Serve sliced in half and toasted, or freeze for later use.


When following the recipe, select either the nut-free version ingredient list or the nut-free, egg-free ingredient list.
