Chillin and Grillin!

image

There is something about summer that makes us never want to eat anything but BBQ! I love being outside and chillin with my dog max (follow him on instagram @dogmaximusprime) and my hubby. Who doesn’t love the smell of dead animal and veggies roasting on the grill! Add a Corona to the mix and you’re set for one amazing meal!

For this meal, Shaan spiced up the ribs with garlic, pepper, chili powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, onion powder and sea salt. He left them in the fridge overnight to soak up the spiciness!

The veggies I cut peppers in half and threw them on the grill. For the asparagus I lightly coated with olive oil then garlic powder and pepper.

It turned out delicious!

Spicy Paleo Sweet Potato Chicken Soup

This soup was one of the best I have made!

Spicy Paleo Sweet Potato Chicken Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 6 chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp Ancho Chili Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp black pepper
  • 2 cloves elephant garlic minced
  • 1 bunch green chard chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2-3 peppers chopped (red, green, yellow- your favorite kind)
  • 2 fennel- use about 1/2 of the top, all of the bulb, chopped
  • 4 small sweet potatoes chopped.
  • 4 celery stocks
  • Any other veggies you want to use up in your fridge

Method:

Pour chicken broth in a large pot and turn the stove to medium/high. Add the spices, pepper, ancho pepper, garlic, sea salt (if you use salt). Cut the chicken into small pieces, add to broth. Let chicken cook in broth for about 10-20 minutes as you cut up all the veggies. Add onions first, then peppers, then fennel, then celery. Let cook for about 15 more minutes. Add green chard and sweet potatoes and let cook until sweet potatoes are soft. It took my soup about 15 minutes for the potatoes to be good and soft. Enjoy!

Another Paleo Breakfast Casserole

It’s time for another breakfast casserole. I make these weekly so we have breakfast made and don’t have to worry about making food during the week. Being prepared and having your food prepped for the week makes it so much easier to eat clean!

For this recipe I used the following:

  • Olive oil (to coat the pan)
  • 3 hand-fulls of spinach
  • 1 yellow onion, 1 red pepper, 1 yellow pepper and 1 green pepper all sautéed in oilve oil
  • 3 pieces of Applegate Farms organic turkey breast
  • 16 eggs
  • 1 clove elephant garlic minced
  • 1 Tbsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp ancho chili pepper

Putting it together:

  1. Coat the pan with olive oil
  2. Spread the spinach across the bottom
  3. Pour the onion and pepper mix and spread evenly
  4. Add the turkey cut into 1/4 inch pieces.
  5. Pour the egg, garlic, pepper mixture on top
  6. Crack a few eggs on top
  7. Throw it in the oven. Cook at 350 for about 35 minutes or until cooked through.

Enjoy!

The best paleo bread

I don’t usually like Paleo bread but I tried a recipe tonight from Paleo Comfort Foods and I love it! Put a little honey on it and its even better. Or….maybe some almond butter and honey, yum!

image

This recipe is from my FAVORITE book, you should buy it- Paleo Comfort Foods.

Ingredients
3 1/2 cups of almond flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
4 large eggs
1 Tablespoon honey
3/4th teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F
combine all dry ingredients
in a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, then add honey and vinegar.
Pour the batter into a well-greased loaf pan.
Bake for 45 minutes or so, or until bread is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

I also made the shrimp and crab bisque recipe from their book…it took some time but it was worth it! Its not the prettiest color but it sure did taste good. And…I love the ninja cooking system!
