Paleo Pork Tamales

COURSE: Entrée   One of my favorite things to do on the weekends at home is experiment in the kitchen. Recently, I decided to try something brand new- tamales! I have had tamales on a few occasions, and they were always delicious. I honestly don't think I knew what was inside them on any of those occasions, so this experiment involved unraveling a bit of mystery as well as trying something new in the kitchen. I decided to go with pork tamales, since I'm ...

Paleo Stuffed Peppers

COURSE: Entrée   My roommate and I came up with this recipe while stuck for dinner plans the other night, and it turned out really well. We made enough for leftovers, and although we weren't sure it would be as good after reheating, we were both more than pleasantly surprised. Stuffed peppers normally are filled with rice and cheese in addition to beef, which doesn't make for a very paleo-friendly recipe.  So we decided to make a few substitutions that would still have the ...

Spicy Paleo Spaghetti Sauce

COURSE: Entrée I make this paleo spaghetti sauce approximately every three weeks.  It is easy to make, doesn't require much prep, and lasts for days while tasting just as good as it did the first day.  I usually make extra just to have enough to freeze for days when I'm in too much of a hurry to cook. Plus, it totally hits the spot when you get that itch for pasta that you know you shouldn't scratch.  I really do think that ...

Citrus Lime Fish Tacos

COURSE: Entrée   These citrus lime fish tacos are absolutely delicious, and in my opinion are best served with an extra side of coleslaw to soak up all of the dressing that dribbles onto your plate while you eat these tacos and make a gigantic mess. Here are a few additional notes: This recipe will produce a lot of smoke, so if you have smoke detectors like mine, now is the time to go temporarily disconnect them and open a window, or just keep a ...

Lamb Stew with Dried Plums

COURSE: Entrée   Yes. I originally looked up this recipe because I had just finished reading the first book of the Hunger Games.  The lamb stew with dried plums they serve in the Capitol in the book seemed to me like it could be made into a pretty delicious paleo recipe. What I did not know at the time is that the recipe I found would change my life.  I have now made this recipe twice and each time the reception has been so ...

Mint Pesto Chicken

COURSE: Entrée   This meal is fresh and tasty, as well as high in protein.  Mint may seem like an odd flavor for chicken, but nothing could be further from the truth! This is one of those meals that I default to when I want to make something tasty but not spend two hours in the grocery store and two hours cooking.  Plus, the leftovers are always delicious.

Baked Salmon in Coconut Oil and Lemon

COURSE: Entrée   Salmon- an oldie, but a goodie, full of healthy fats that impart a delicious buttery flavor. For some reason I always forget how tasty salmon is, and I'll go through stretches where I don't eat it in forever.  Until I made this baked salmon the other night, I don't think I'd had it in over 6 months. This was also the first time I'd used the parchment paper bags, and I think it made a huge difference.  Salmon can sometimes ...

Season Opener Turkey Burgers

COURSE: Entrée "Football season": an excuse for why people can't eat healthy.  It's just too hard.  There's too much to drink, and too much unhealthy food, and too little self control. However, even in the midst of all that, it's a personal decision, just like everything else.  I think the key is to realize that the tough part is actually just consciously making the choice to do your own thing.  Otherwise, you spend the whole time bemoaning how delicious everything looks and wondering ...
