Grilled Orange Chicken & Garlicky Veggies (gluten free $ AIP/paleo)

I love to grill just about anything! This year I’m getting my hands dirty and perfecting charcol grilling! Although this recipe will be just as tasty on a gas grill.

Don’t be intimidated by grilling!! You got this! 

This recipe came together over a gathering of friends. It’s perfect for hanging out and enjoying the warmer weather with friends, family, and loved ones! So pull up a chair or stool, make yourself a yummy mocktail, and really enjoy the process for preparing and cooking your meals! 

As always, the quality of your food is SOOOO important! But organically grown produce, locally sourced (if you live somewhere that’s available to you!!), pasture raised/organic chicken/turkey/pork, 100% grass fed & finished, organic beef/bison, & wild caught/sustainably harvested seafood!


This recipe is Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) friendly, paleo, primal, Keto Friendly, lower carb, nightshade free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, gluten free, grain free, & so darn tasty! 

$ What Makes this High-Vibing Food?

  • First and foremost, putting your own love, gratitude, time and energy into making foods at home will automatically raise the vibration of the foods/meal. This will also help to balance your sacral and heart chakras. Putting your love into the food you prepare will literally raise the vibrational frequency as love is the highest vibration out there!

  • You are what you eat and what your food eats. Using organic, GMO free, free/pasture raised, wild caught, minimally processed ingredients lead to an overall higher vibrational frequency. Basically, eating organic provides us extra energy currency!

  • This dish is rich in protein, which is grounding and protective. It also supports the root chakra.

  • Contains calcium, a key root chakra nutrient.

  • Contains zinc, which is needed for thousands of chemical reactions in your body involving protein, so it is also supportive to the root chakra.

  • Contains root veggies, which help to provide grounding energy to support the root chakra.

  • Contains mushrooms, which are grounding and support the root chakra.

  • This recipe is full of healthy fats and oils, which supports the sacral chakra.

  • This recipe is high in fiber, which supports all three of the lower chakras as it aides in the movement and flow of bulk during the digestive processes.

  • Contains cruciferous veggies, which are especially balancing to the heart chakra.

  • Contains green colored foods, which support and balance the heart chakra.

$ A Short Note on Swaps or Ingredients:

*While I cannot guarantee that using these swaps will yield the same flavors I have create in this recipe, these swaps should generally work well! *

  • Coconut aminos is a soy/gluten free soy sauce alternative that is DELICIOUS! It has a slightly sweeter tasted the soy sauce but it still deep and rich in flavor. I think it is wayyyy tastier! If you cannot find thins in your local grocery store in the Asian section, you can easily buy it online!
