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, …

Basil Lime chicken

I love discovering new ways to cook chicken. Lately, I’ve been on a boneless chicken thigh kick. I like the flavor and I do not miss the dry texture of breasts. This is the first time I’ve used basil and lime and it won’t be my last. I LOVED this combination and I will definitely …

Simmered Cabbage with Beef

At the end of a work week, often I have lonely vegetables left in the fridge and I’m out of ideas on what to do with them. That was the case this week. I had a head of cabbage, some meatballs, and a shriveled up shallot that I refused to let die alone. I grabbed …

Whole 30 Burrito Bowl

A friend of mine at work recently did her first Whole 30. I remember talking about the plan and the things she was giving up for 30 days. The one thing I couldn’t imagine ever giving up was cheese. I love the stuff. Well, I thought I did. It’s been 20 days without cheese and …

Roast with Coffee and Carrots

I halfway filled a crockpot with vegetables that are “allowed” on Whole 30 such as carrots, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms and garlic. I should have added green beans, maybe next time! After the vegetables and a seared roast were added, I needed something extra to make the sauce. I love a rich wine based roast gravy. …
