Sausage Apple Paleo Breakfast Scramble

During this round of Whole30, creating recipes for breakfast is slowing getting easier and more fun. I’ve never been a cereal-and-toast breakfast person anyway so expanding beyond the stereotypical breakfast is natural. Eating more paleo breakfast dishes helps carry me through the morning until lunch time.  This could be a complete breakfast in itself, but …

Spicy Sunflower Chicken-Whole30

This is one of those magical cooking moments when I was just dabbling with ingredients and the results were really good. I was short on time, and I wanted comfort food. I immediately thought of Pad Thai from Mel Joulwan of the Well Fed cookbooks and a fantastic Whole30 resource. It worked out better than …

Whole30 Breakfast Casserole

One of my best secrets for success with the Whole30 plan is having a ready-made breakfast casserole. I usually eat this after my morning CrossFit class or I’ll warm it up at school before the kids arrive. What I love best about this is you can change up the vegetables, the spices, and the “crust” …

Roasted Beef with Brussels

I can finally turn on my oven! The temperatures are turning more fall-like and that means roasted meat and vegetables. I bought a beef tenderloin and had great aims to do something fancy to it. Adding bacon is as fancy as I got. This is a throw-together and let the oven do the work thing. …

Whole 30 Breakfast Casserole

This is super easy to assemble and bake. I make a variation of this just about every weekend, especially during the month of Whole 30. This one was one of the best yet! Ingredients: 1 large sweet potato 1 lb of ground pork 8 oz of frozen spinach, thawed and drained through a towel. 10 …

Breakfast Greens+Eggs

I am a long time Southern girl at heart and nothing is better than a big breakfast of eggs and grits with butter and cheese. I could eat it everyday. However, corn does not love me back. It is about as inflammatory as brown rice. I will enjoy it on a cold weekend but I’m …

French Omelets, Julia’s Way

I’ve been in a fantastic cooking mood lately. I’m not sure if it’s me trying to usher in Spring NOW (remind me of this when I’m boiling in July) or if it’s my nifty new pan, or my first week of Whole 30..again. Whatever the reason, I’m spending a large portion of my commute home …

Sausage Sweet Potato Quiche

I love having something made ahead of time for breakfast on weekday mornings. If I’m going to CrossFit, I’ll have my usual shake, then eat something after I get to school. If I’m sleeping in, I will maximize every minute of sleep time, and I want something I can heat and eat quickly. This is …

Better Brussels Sprouts

When a new cookbook arrived in the mail, I frantically looked for something for Brussels sprouts because I had a ton of them in the fridge and they needed a new spin. I’ve been on a big kick with these small bits of flavor for about a year since eating the Paleo way. Brussels and …

Ginger Zucchini Soup

In preparation for a new round of Whole 30, I had to pull out my current favorite cookbook, Well Fed 2. When I saw this soup recipe, I knew I had to try it. I’m a huge soup fan, but most of my soups during these 30 days are broth based. Melissa promised this one …

Whole 30 Apple Sausage

I love making my own sausage so I can control what I’m eating. I always start with ground pork with at least 20% fat so I don’t wind up with tree bark consistency. Then I just season and cook! This recipe is courtesy of Michelle and is from her new cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo. If …

Roasted Green Beans

                      I love a big bowl of slow cooked green beans with onions and maybe a little bacon. I like them soft and easy to chew. I have made many many dishes of canned green beans cooked for an hour in an iron pot and …

Paleo General Tso’s Chicken

My original idea for dinner was a veggie loaded garlic chicken stir fry. I wanted a lot of vegetables of various color and texture. But then when my head still felt like a pressurized blimp, I changed my mind to wanting something spicy that might open my breathing passages. And this recipe was born. I …

Shrimp Stir Fry

Today was a very hectic day and as usual, I wanted something quick, but filling. I had some shrimp waiting in the fridge and plenty of vegetables. My only decision is which seasoning to use. 1 Tablespoon coconut oil 3 cups of chopped broccoli 1/3 cup of red bell pepper, sliced 1/4 cup of onion, …
