Ground Beef Jerky Recipe (Nightshade Free)

Ground Beef Jerky Recipe (Nightshade Free)

A few months ago a purchased an awesome jerky gun. I bought it at Cabela's when I was picking up my 1/2 cow in the parking lot. Fitting right. I bought it here because they had a high quality stainless steel model. I didn't want to get plastic because I have heard they can break. But, if you just want to try out a cheaper option totally go with a plastic one. I love my jerky gun. Plus I am able to use ground beef which is so much cheaper than buying a hunk of meat. I made two different recipes. Mainly because I wanted to tweak one and came up with a whole different recipe. I ran out of Coconut Aminos so I had to improvise. It worked out though. Although I have no idea what to call the recipes. Also, I didn't use any nightshades because I am in the...

Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar Beverage

Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar Beverage

Does anyone out there try to take ACV in the morning? Do you find it just revolting to drink. I know I do. But I know the benefits out weight that taste. Luckily I came across Bragg's ACV drink. It tastes great, but costs like $3-4 and has a little bit a stevia in it. I know the amount of stevia is minimal, but it's still there. So I figured I could make this drink myself. Granted its not as sweet as the Bragg's drink, but it's still easier to drink than straight up ACV. I believe I put more ACV in my version too. Its a lot darker so, yes it is stronger tasting. Benefits? Well if you just google Benefits of ACV you will get all kinds of answers. I started drinking it to help aid digestion and get things going in the morning. I take a few large...

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...

Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Cream Sauce

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.

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...

The Paleo Diet Budget Shopping Guide Review

March 29, 2012  |  Life  |  Share

This very practical ebook was just released by Robb Wolf. The Paleo Diet Budget Shopping Guide. I was lucky enough to get it a few days early, so I dove right in and wrote this quick review for you. Our family has been eating a Paleo diet for almost three years now, so needless to say we have figured out a few of these tips ourselves. But in no way am I saying that if you are a Paleo regular or whatever that you shouldn't purchase this ebook. Because you should. It is loaded with all kinds of goodies. There are links to audio bonuses of Robb telling us how it is. To awesome recipe links and everything in between. On Robb's site they go through an overview of the book that is very detailed. You can read it here. But I will put a few more cents in on some of...
