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

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!

  • 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

Enjoy!

Breakfast for the entire week!

wpid-IMAG0602.jpg

This is a very easy way to have breakfast ready and made for the entire week.  Below are the instructions. Dice three peppers (whatever kind of peppers you like) I chose Orange, Yellow and Red, yum!image

One onion diced….image

16 organic eggs (I LOVE the eggs from Costco!)….image

We also got some garlic from Costco- this giant bag was only 4$- I used about 5 cloves.image

BACON! We love bacon! Who doesn’t like bacon!image

Whisk the egg with some spices. I used pepper, garlic, and hot sauce.image

Saute’ the peppers with the onions in the bacon grease. Add about two medium size leaves of kale.image

Mix the veggies with the egg and pour into muffin tin (MAKE SURE YOU EITHER GREESE THE MUFFIN TIN VERY WELL OR USE PARCHMENT PAPER MUFFIN PAPERS).  Throw in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes and bam- egg omelet muffins for the entire week! (This recipe makes 24 muffin omelets). Sorry about the blurry picture!image

3 of these for breakfast was perfect each day!image
