I made it today and it is delicious! I don't miss the beans either. isn't it strange ? Cheese I don't miss either. The chili is easy and warm and filling. Perfect for this wet grey day.
oh I did not add the garnishes and the jalapeno I forgot. It would have added to it but it was still delicious.

... I follow this recipe except I switch out the ground beef with ground turkey and Italian sausage. I also don't add the carrots or avocado.

I use all of the other veggies, but I coarsely chop them, and I also add:

- sun-dried tomatoes
- 2 bay leaves (remove after cooking)
- chili powder

... I may have to fix this over the weekend... I love it and don't miss the beans!

I know the caveman didn't have access to a lot of Jell-O pudding and protein powder (unfortunate for them!), but I learned it's a really good way for me to get my protein levels up in a pinch.

A box of fat free Jell-O mixed with 3 scoops of protein powder make four servings of some pretty sweet treats. At 80 calories, if my protein levels are lagging for the day I don't feel guilty snacking on these....especially when I'm craving a sweetie.

Until I am better at keeping my ratios healthy using natural foods, this is a god send!

Mrskateduvall... do you have a way of getting the organ meats ground? Because I've heard you can just mix the ground organ meat with beef or whatever and it disguises it pretty well. That's the only tip I've got; have some liver in my freezer at the moment, but am planning on just frying it up with some onions! No disguise there.

I need recipes for disguising organ meat. My paleo goal this new year is to try organ meat once a week. I found one for meatloaf, with various ground organs included, and beef heart lasagne, now I need more variety.

Pistachio Crusted Salmon Recipe
Makes 4 servings.

Ingredients:
4 3-ounce salmon fillets (preferably WIld Alaskan)
1 T Dijon mustard
1/4 cup almond meal
1/2 oz pistachios, shelled (about 25)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 shallot, minced
coconut oil to prevent sticking
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a food processor or with a knife, chop pistachios until they are about the size of the bread crumbs. Mix with almond meal, minced garlic and minced shallots and place on a deep plate.

Season fish with salt and pepper. Spread mustard evenly over one side of fillets, then press salmon into mixture on that same side.

Place on baking sheet coated with a thin layer of coconut oil. Bake 10 minutes, or until top is browned and fish is cooked through.

This is delicious served with a mixed green salad (spinach, kale, chard, arugula, etc.) and served with a dijon vinaigrette with fresh berries on top.

I find it easier to get enough fat if I buy fatter meat cuts... that figures lol but I've been eating lean meat for the past decade... so someone had to suggest to me that you can buy chicken thighs and drumsticks and they will provide more fat. =)

I've been on primalpalate.com a lot and I just love all their chicken recipes. Our favorite, so far is : Aromatic Grilled Chicken Thighs
www.primalpalate.com/paleo-recipe/ar
om
atic-grilled-chicken-thighs/


Ingredients
8 skin on Chicken Thigh, and bone-in
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp dried Oregano
1/2 tsp Turmeric
1/4 tsp Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Paprika

Process

Preheat oven at 375° F.
Mix all of the spices together in a small mixing bowl.
Rinse the chicken thighs and pat dry so that the skin is still just slightly moist (it will help the spices adhere).
Liberally dust the chicken thighs with the spice blend, just on the skin side.
Prepare your grill to moderate heat with a cool spot (indirect heat). If you have propane, keep a burner on low flame or off completely.
Cook the chicken bone side down for 25-30 minutes, until it is cooked completely. Do not flip to the skin side for more than a moment or two (and closely monitor if you do), because the spices will burn. The chicken should be 165 degrees F (74 C) in the thickest part.

I had never had anything with turmeric but I'm loving it =)

Also, in my recipe book (that I just made and actually consult lol) I write down what we ate, if we like it and what to change for another time,

Hope you have a great day ☼

You are SO worth all the efforts you put in your journey! Don't give up, it's never a failure, just a step back. Going forward is the key because nobody is perfect and set backs will happen. Be proud!

fried chicken

1 -2 lbs. chicken drumsticks
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 to 1 cup almond flour
olive oil for frying.

I cook the chicken extra long on medium so it cooks through all the way and so the oil doesn't burn out too fast. I just mix the flour, salt and pepper in a gallon size baggie, add chicken and fry it up.

The possibilities always outnumber the problems.

Thanks for your help!
One of the reasons I'm still looking for some sort of a bar is for when I golf or hike or I'm throwing in Highland Games. We have long days where a non-messy snack would make life easier.
Thank you!

That's a hard one. Most Paleo baked goods do contain almonds, walnuts, etc. To make a baked snack, you'll probably have to get creative. When a recipe calls for coconut oil, you could swap out ghee (butter without the milk solids). The http://paleomg.com/ site has some amazing treats that use sunbutter (ground up sun flower seeds). She also has recipes using cashew butter too. You could drop out the shredded coconut from the recipes, and I've never noticed the coconut flour tasting coconutty. It will take a lot of research on your part but I think Mark Sisson's website, as well as paleomg might have a few things for you.
Another idea may be to drop out baked goods and maybe have mini bell peppers dipped in guacamole or sweet potato chips with a spinach artichoke dip. That will help you stay away from the nuts and coconut, but have some snacks for you and your family.

Looking for protein/snack bar recipes. 2 problems with every recipe I find online:

1. I am allergic to Almonds, Walnuts, Hazelnuts etc. (No problem with ONLY peanuts or cashews though)
2. I despise the flavor of coconut. Seems like shredded coconut is in EVERYTHING. I have found expeller oil that is okay. But cannot stand the taste otherwise.

If you have recipes without the above mentioned, I would love some help!!

On the weekends I make egg muffins like the post below. I use up whatever veggies are in the frig, plus whatever to make them tasty (not CHEESE, for me). My favorites are

sauted spinach, red pepper, green onion (drain well)
raw salmon scrapes (I live in the PNW, if you don't have scrapes, use canned or leftovers)
bacon and brocolli (saute the brocolli, drain well)
shrimp, spinach (sauted, drained)
baked leftover sweet potato & onion
Spaghetti squash
Qinuoa (I know some of you don't do qinua, sorry)

I use muffin tins. I really pack with the fillings. Then, I beat up about 6 eggs (to make 12) and top off each muffin. bake at 375 for about 20 minutes until set up. Remove from the tins and either freeze or put in baggies for later in the week. About 3 is a huge breakfast for me.

I made some mayo for the first time a couple of months ago. We don't use very much mayo and I ended up throwing most of it out. It tasted really good though, so much better than store bought.

Cauliflower rice

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30 minutes
Provided by: Foodee Project

Ingredients
1 head cauliflower
2 tbsp ghee or clarified butter
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
salt and pepper to taste

Directions
If you have a food processor, using the grate setting, grate small chunks of cauliflower. Iif you don't have a food processor, use a cheese grater on the larger side and grate the head of cauliflower into little granules but watch your fingers!

Heat ghee in a skillet over medium high heat. Once smoking, add "riced" cauliflower and allow to brown.

Stir occasionally, allowing the cauliflower to brown a bit and sprinkle in the spices as it cooks. Side note: use which ever spices or herbs you are using in your main dish, to complement the flavors.

Cauliflower rice is done when texture is soft and somewhat sticky (like rice!). Approximately 8-10 minutes.

Super easy breakfast to go: Egg "Muffins"--Makes 24, keeps for 4-5 days

-8 sausage links (smaller size, can also use 0.5-1lb ground sausage or a mix of bacon, ham, steak)
-16 eggs
-Veg of choice (1/2 large onion, a bell pepper, and garlic, all diced finely, are my go-to choices. Celery, spinach, rocket, very finely diced carrots, mushrooms etc can all be used)1
-ghee, butter, etc.
-salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease the cups of one muffin tin with butter (or fat of choice)
Brown the sausage in a frying pan or cast iron skillet. When done, remove and cut in to small chunks.
Place equal amounts of sausage in the bottoms of the muffin tins (2 regular sized).
Sweat onions and garlic over medium heat, until onions are translucent. Add and saute other veg. When done, remove from heat, and place equal amounts of veg in each
In a large bowl, scramble the eggs and season with salt and pepper.
Pour the scrambled eggs evenly on top of the sausage. The mixture will come almost to the top of the tin.
Cook for 10 minutes. Rotate muffin tins. Cook for an additional 10 min. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
Use a spatula to loosen the egg muffin from the sides of the pan if inverting the pan does not work.

Enjoy!

Lets use this thread to share general recipes with each other. I'll start it off with one of our teammates recipes for a "Christmas Paleo Breakfast"... although I suspect that this casserole can and will be enjoyed year round. Thanks for sharing your recipe on your blog KKITTSY emoticon ... Link to KKITTSY's blog: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=KK

TSY


emoticon Here is the recipe: emoticon

I wanted something paleo to start my day so that I wouldn't get off to a bad start. Here's what I came up with. I love the red and green peppers on top- makes it FESTIVE!!! emoticon

1 lb. breakfast sausage, browned (spicy, sage, pork, or turkey..whatever your preference)
8oz button mushrooms- sliced
1/2 large onion- chopped
1 T butter
1 lrg. sweet potato (yam)
3-4c. fresh spinach
10 large eggs
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 red bell pepper
salt
pepper

Brown sausage. In separate skillet, saute onions and mushrooms in the butter. Mix into browned sausage. Pour mix into bottom of a greased 9X13pan or round deep casserole dish.

Microwave sweet potato 3-4min, turn, then microwave again 3-4min until cooked. remove skin and cut into bite size cubes. layer over the sausage mix.

quickly saute the spinach in the "sausage pan"- (using the sausage drippings). layer over mixture in pan.

beat eggs, pour over casserole
top with sliced/chopped red and green bell peppers for a festive holiday look. lightly salt and pepper the top for taste.

bake at 350F-400F for 45min-1hour or until eggs are set.

ENJOY!
i served mine with cinnamon-butter sauteed apples. It was very filling and delicious!

**nutrition note**
if using turkey sausage, and assuming 6 servings- this is around 250 cals, 15gC, 15gF, 22gP.
using pork sausage increases fat content.
