Orange Ground Beef

Orange Ground Beef

I know a couple posts ago I mentioned how large the gap was between new posts, well this beats it. It felt like 6 months but was two months. And even more than that since my last recipe post. I will admit to getting lazy. I am constantly making new recipes I just never write down what I put in it nor do I take pictures. I hope this changes. This post wont have the best photos, I took them with my iPhone, but its a recipe and it was really good. Hope you enjoy. Orange Ground Beef Ingredients: 1/2 Cup Toasted Coconut Flakes (toast at 300• for about 15 minutes stirring frequently.) 2 lbs Ground Beef 1/2 Cup Cashews 3-5 Stalks of Celery Chopped (you could use bell pepper) 1 Onion Sliced Juice of 2 oranges 1 Cup Bone Broth 1.5 Cups Pineapple Chunks 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder 2 teaspoons Coconut Aminos 1.5 Tablespoons Arrowroot Powder 1/4 teaspoon Cardamom 1 teaspoon Tumeric 1 teaspoon Ginger...

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...

Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Cream Sauce

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...

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...

Asian Inspired Pot Roast with Cauliflower Rice

I feel like its been awhile since I have posted something new. So here we go. I am trying to get a couple posts done this week since we are starting to paint and move into our new home next week. Lots of changes happening over here. I was also lucky enough to make it to the 1st Annual Ancestral Health Symposium this year. You can catch videos of the presentations here. And slides of the presentations live here. If you want to check out what some people thought about the whole even check this post out from Richard Nikoley. I think this is the most complete post so far. Overall I thought it was an incredible event. The fact that a few hundred people go together to talk about this way of life, regardless of what side of the fence they fell on. Be it low-carb or high-carb, high-fat or low-fat,...

Really Quick!

March 21, 2011  |  Food  |  Share

Quick meal ideas. I am sure this is a common problem in many households. I know it is in ours. The biggest problem is that I like to cook and am always trying out new recipes. This can be a little time consuming. And while I get home around 6, Nolan our son is already hungry. And he is not very patient when it comes to food. Jamie tries to help out the best she can, but when you have a 21 month old running around the house getting into everything cooking isn't the easiest task to complete. So, lately we have been trying to come up with quicker meal options. My next few posts will have ideas and recipes for quick meals. I know quick is a general term and others might not consider these quick. The thing is we do not microwave our food and do want to make...
