Baked Cod with Mushrooms and Coconut Milk

Baked Cod with Mushrooms and Coconut Milk

It has been awhile since I have posted a recipe, I know. I have a few more that are close to ready, just need to take pictures blah blah blah. I know you don't care about all that. Also, I have been following an autoimmune protocol to try and figure out some skin issues. I have had eczema as long as I can remember. When I first went Paleo it got tons better, but has now reared its ugly head again. The protocol I have been following is from Diane Sanfillippo's new book Practical Paleo. Check out my review here. Or, don't waste your time and just buy it. Enough about me, lets get to the recipe. Baked Cod with Mushrooms and Coconut Milk Ingredients: 5-6 fillets of Cod 1.5 Cups of sliced mushrooms Few cloves of garlic diced 2 Tablespoons palm oil or coconut oil or butter Dill-fresh would be best, but dried will work. 1/2 cup...

“Practical Paleo” Book Review

August 1, 2012  |  Food, Life, Uncategorized  |  Share

I have been going back and forth on how I should start this post. I really can't decide. So I will just start off by saying, WOW, this book is amazing. Diane from Balanced Bites, really hit it out of the park with this book. I wish when I started my Paleo journey that I would have had this book at my disposal. I think this book will be accessible to everyone from a Paleo veteran to someone who eats cereal all day. You can tell a lot of thought went into the structure and layout of the book. The first part of the book is an intro to Paleo and why we should be eating whole foods. It's very easy to understand. You get some of the science, but it is never overwhelming. Also included are some awesome guides. They are for quick references ranging from leaky gut, a guide to...

My Paleo, Primal, Ancestral, and JERF Resources

June 28, 2012  |  Food, Life  |  Share

I have been inspired to write a post like this a few times over the past couple of weeks. At the Kettlebell Gym I go to, a few of the other crazies that get beat down on the regular have been talking about a clean eating challenge. They have been asking me about recipes and what is Paleo. Also, Cave Girl Eats posted a pic of her fridge the other day that made me think if people would be interested in seeing what is in my Kitchen. Well, wether you are interested or not I am still going to post this. It is a little difficult for me not to get to complicated with talking about Paleo. I love this lifestyle and have been living it for three plus years and am still figuring it out. I will try to keep it simple and look back to when I first...

Not Pho-real!

Not Pho-real!

OK, so I tried to be a little more creative with the title of this post. I just love all the names of some local Pho restaurants. My favorite is What the Pho? hehe to good. Anyway I really love Pho and was starting to make it before our switch over to Paleo. But I haven't made it since. I have been wanting to do more with our broth that we make then just drinking it or making stews with it, so I thought of Pho. I wouldn't really call this Pho though. I put some little meatballs in it and some veggies. I guess it would be more of a soup with sweet potato noodles. Yes, I said sweet potato noodles. I just used a spiral cutter that I got on groupon for the first time. Now to the recipe. Sweet Potato Noodle Soup. Ingredients Meatballs 1 pound ground pork or any ground...

Sweet Potato Power!

Sweet Potato Power!

I was lucky enough to receive a copy of the book Sweet Potato Power by Ashley Tudor. I can tell you that this review is not biased at all because I actually bought the book before I got my copy to review. Luckily I was able to cancel that order and save a few bucks. My reviews are usually short and to the point because I don't want to give much away. If I enjoy the book I want you to read it too. So here are some of my thoughts. I should let you know that I have a sweet potato problem. I think I am addicted. Hehe. I have to say right off the bat that this is going to be one of my first go to books to suggest to people who are interested in how I eat. Most of the books I have read that relate to...

Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Cream Sauce

I made this on a whim and didn't do a good job of taking pictures. But, it is a pretty simple recipe. Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Cream Sauce Ingredients: 4 Small Zucchini 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil 1 Avocado Juice from 1/2 a Lemon Salt n Pepper Handful fresh basil 2 Tablespoons olive oil 3 Tablespoons coconut milk or just more olive oil Olives to top pasta with, chopped. Directions: Cut the zucchini into noodles. You can do this by hand or use a mandolin. Toss the Zucchini with salt and set aside. This will help it dry out a little. You can now chop your olives and start the cream sauce. Add your avocado, lemon juice,olive oil and coconut milk and blend in your food processor or blender until creamy. Add in your basil and more olive oil if needed. Heat a pan with 2 coconut oil and toss in zucchini. You will only need to cook it a few minutes and medium heat. I...

Coconut Yogurt

Coconut Yogurt

This is like our third post in a week. Or it feels like it, but I hate sitting on recipes. So I had to post this before the weekend. I was inspired to make coconut yogurt in order to give my family some healthy probiotics. When our oldest was 1 we gave him that crap coconut yogurt from the store and of course he loved it. Then I learned how bad that stuff actually was so we stopped. So here is our coconut yogurt recipe. This makes a lot. You can easily split this recipe in half. I also got most of the ideas for the recipe here. This was not something I wanted to mess with on my own. Coconut Yogurt Ingredients: 1Liter of coconut milk - You can use the equivalent of canned full fat. (We use the Aroy-d brand that comes in liter tetra paks.) 1Liter of coconut cream - Same thing,...

Apple Pie Pancakes

Apple Pie Pancakes

UPDATE: I have heard from a few people that this recipe isn't turning out for them. Most said it is to runny. I have tried this recipe a few times and it always turns out. Not sure if its the brand of milk or flour. Maybe add your milk slowly and try to get it to the right thickness. Thanks. This post will be super simple today. No long back story or anything. Just a straight up yummy recipe. Enjoy. I am adding a little side note here: I have had a few people say that the batter is to runny. The measurements below are correct. The only thing I can think of is that my brand of coconut flour and milk make the difference. If you are interested I used Tropical Traditions coconut flour and Aroy-D coconut Milk that comes in the tetra packs. Hope it works for you. Apple Pie Pancakes Ingredients: 3...

Coconut Salmon Patties with Avocado Sauce

Coconut Salmon Patties with Avocado Sauce

We got our first food processor the other day and I have been using it a ton. This recipe was inspired by the need to use it more and more. So without further ado. Salmon Patties 2 medium sized fillets (or one large fillet, see pic below) 3 eggs 1/2 Cup shredded coconut flakes 1/4 Cup almond meal 2 celery stalks 1 teaspoon ginger powder 2 Tablespoons yellow mustard 2 Tablespoons coconut aminos splash of fish sauce (optional) pinch of red pepper flakes lemon salt n pepper Directions: This couldn't be any easier. Well unless you bought it out of the freezer section and tossed it in the microwave, but that just sounds gross. Preheat oven to 350°. Put your salmon fillets on a pan lined with parchment paper and sprinkle with some salt n pepper. Cut the lemon in half, cut half into slices and place on salmon. Toss in the oven for around 15 mins. Let the salmon cool then toss in the food...
