I got this one from Everyday Paleo and my family loves it! I make the fried apples piece as a dessert at least once a week.
everydaypaleo.com/2011/02/25/sausage
-n
-cabbage-noodles-with-fried-apples/


Sausage N’ Cabbage “Noodles”

1 lb mild Italian pork sausage or other ground meat of your choice
1 red onion, thinly sliced
½ head or 5 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
2 tablespoons grass fed butter (or ghee, or coconut oil)
½ teaspoon caraway seeds
½ teaspoon paprika
Fresh ground black pepper and sea salt to taste

In a large skillet brown the sausage. Once the sausage is fully cooked, remove it from the pan and set aside. Add the butter to the same pan with the sausage drippings and add the onions and cook for about 5 minutes or until the onions start to brown a bit. Add the cabbage and cook for another 7-10 minutes or until the cabbage is soft and “noodle-y.” Add the sausage back to the pan, add the spices, mix well and serve! Serves 4.

Fried Apples
3-4 small organic apples, thinly sliced (about 3 cups)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
¼ cup raisins
½ tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons canned full fat coconut milk

In a medium sized saute pan, heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the apples and saute for about 5 minutes or until they start to soften. Add the raisins and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Add the cinnamon, mix well and add the coconut milk. Stir the coconut milk in with the apples just until warm and serve. Serves 4.

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

A very easy and tasty entree:

1 pork tenderloin
3-4 strips of bacon
Paste of crushed garlic, olive oil, dried basil and oregano leaves.

Rub past all over top of tenderloin, then wrap it with the bacon. Bake at 375F for 45 minutes, allow to rest wrapped in foil for 10 minutes, then serve.

2 chicken breasts, each cut into 4 pieces
1/2 cup pitted prunes

2 smashed garlic cloves
2 tbsp cider vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
dash each of salt and pepper
1/2 lemon cut into 4 quarters

Mix all together in roasting pan- bake at 400F for 45 minutes-save juices to pour over meat and veggies on your plate. This was served with mashed celeriac/nutmeg and a bit of yogurt and butter. YUMMY!

Oh my god oh my god oh my GOD! I finally got around to making that Rachael Ray recipe - Montalcino chicken and figs... Let me tell you, it absolutely knocked my socks off!!! I'm keeping this recipe forever, it's my new go-to "not sure what to make tonight" or "trying to impress someone" recipe. SO FREAKIN GOOD!!!!!

Tweaks I made:
I didn't want to pay for pancetta, so I left it out. I imagine it would be even more out of this world with it, though!
Used almond flour instead of all-purpose
and of course skipped the gnocchi/nutmeg/chive combo... I just had a side salad with it.

You guys seriously have to try this! Enjoy! :)

I like crunchy things and since I don't eat seeds and nuts anymore I lack for crunchy fulfillment in my life. I mean, you can only eat so much celery right?

So, I tried the following and YUM!

Chopped up kale (not too small) in gallon bag with lemon olive oil - shake up to evenly distribute oil.
Spread out on baking pan. Sprinkle lemon pepper seasoning (Mrs. Dashes kind is salt-free).
Bake for about 30 minutes at 250* temp.

It comes out as crunchy tasty kale chips. Super good for you too!

I am in looooove with lasagnae where I substitute the noodles for zucchini. I've seen some recipes around online that cover this sort of topic but I don't use one... I just make a usual bolognese (ground beef, tomato paste, diced tomato, kalamata olives, red chili flakes, Italian herbs, and a little bit of good heavy cream if you'd like) and layer that in the usual way but with raw zucchini sliced lengthwise instead. I SWORE I hated zucchini before this but it's amazing!

I never have ricotta or other soft cheese around so I usually skip the cheese layers, or just use a little shredded parm on top of the zucchini layers to help hold them together since they don't stick together like pasta... especially since I no longer drain my beef since now that I get the grassfed stuff, making the beef mixture less "dry" than the traditional stuff.

So I saw Rachael Ray make this on her show tonight:
www.rachaelraymag.com/Recipes/rachae
l-
ray-magazine-recipes/rachael-ray-30-R>minute-meals/Montalcino-Chicken-with
-F
igs-and-Buttered-Gnocchi

It's essentially chicken with onions and figs in a red wine sauce over gnocchi. Of course, gnocchi is out, but the chicken part with a few tweaks would be perfect, right? Any suggestions of what to eat this with? I suppose a simple little salad would be nice... but I was thinking more like something to soak up that yummy sauce... Let me know! :)

I don't know if any of you guys ski or snowboard, but do you have any suggestions for what to bring with you for lunch when you go skiing? I don't usually wear a backpack but I might start if it means saving money and being healthier by bringing my own food. I used to stuff a package of Ramen in my jacket and get a cup of hot water and make it right there, but that stuff is crap! I need some new ideas... Help!

I make my own almond milk by putting one cup of water in the blender and adding 1 Tablespoon of Almond butter. Give it a whirl and it makes a nice base for any smoothie recipe. I like to throw in a banana and a cup of frozen strawberries, but there are many combinations.

I've heard you can make nut milk from lots of different nuts, but unless you have a high grade blender, nut butters get better results.

I forgot about this thread! I made a pot of chili (that's what I'll call it) the other day:

Ground beef
Diced tomatoes
Jalapeno peppers
Red bell pepper
Onion
Jicama

Throw it all in the CrockPot and cook on low until it's done. Yummy!

Note: I used the jicama because I've heard about them and didn't know what to do with it. It's not like a potato at all -- it's crunchy. Actually, I like it in the chili because it's a different texture, but now I've done some reading and found out that it's very popular eaten raw, with lime juice and some fruit topping. Can't wait to try that snack!

Made a salmon filet last night- very easy and oh so good.

2- 6 oz. salmon filets with skin on.
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. ground flax seeds
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 tsp. sesame seeds
1/2 tsp. fennel seeds

Preheat oven to 450F. Place salmon skin side down on foil lined cooking sheet and spread with a mixture of the mustard, flax and ginger. Sprinkle with the seeds and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Also works well with sea trout filets.

Chicken Porkolt

2 pounds boneless chicken, cubed
3 large green bell peppers chopped
3 large tomatoes chopped
1 clove garlic crushed
1 large (yellow or white) onion
2 tablespoons paprika (not sweet paprika)
2 tablespoons olive oil
enough water to cover.

1. Heat oil in cast iron stock pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Add onions, garlic and chicken, saute until chicken is browned on all sides.
2. Add paprika and let simmer for 5 minutes.
3. For a more stew like dish process only 1/3 of the peppers and tomatoes in blender and add to pot with the rest of the chopped pepper and tomato. For a soup like dishe process 2/3's of the pepper and tomatoes in blender and add to the pot.
4. add just enough water to cover chicken and cover.
5. Simmer for 2-4 hours.


This is a Hungarian dish my mother in law would make but I made it primal by not serving spatzle with it. It's good by it's self but I like full fat sour cream on top it. It can be made with any meat and tastes good.

For lunches I make salads. This week, curried chicken salad, made with just grilled chicken, homemade mayo (out of the Paleo Diet book), and grapes wrapped up in two lettuce leaves. Sometimes I make it with tuna, carrots, and celery. Or homemade guacamole instead of mayo. You get the point. emoticon

Somehow I missed the burgundy beef recipe out of the Paleo Diet book. It sounds delicious -- I'll have to try it!

Shrimp tandoori last night. A salad composed of baby spinach, red pepper and mango slices, chopped jalapeno to taste, a good handful of chopped cilantro all tossed with lime juice and olive oil then topped with shrimp freshly cooked in a small amount of olive oil and 1 tsp of curry paste.

Today for dinner I made turkey burgers (no bun) and served them on top of fresh tomato slices, and topped with avocado slices.

On the side was a hefty portion of steamed asparagus with homemade hollandaise sauce. YUM.
