What I find so fun about eating Paleo is every recipe I try is NEW! It has been so fun experimenting and creating a book of new favorites.
My advice, and advice I’ve read from others is to try some foods you normally wouldn’t try. Don’t eat the same 7 recipes every week because you will get burnt out, guaranteed. If you want to eat paleo permanently you’ve gotta mix it up!
Recently I have tried a few recipes that are SO GOOD! I’ve made some promises to share a few of these, so let’s just get right to it!
ROASTED BRUSSEL SPROUTS WITH BACON: (thanks to nom nom paleo)
1 1/2 lb brussel sprouts
4 slices of uncured uncooked bacon
2-3 tablespoons melted ghee or fat of your choice
Salt and pepper
Aged balsamic vinegar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Line a baking sheet with foil
Peel any wilted leaves off and Slice brussel sprouts in half
Toss brussel sprouts in melted ghee
Lay out on baking sheet
Chop uncooked bacon and sprinkle on top if brussel sprouts
Cook for 30 minutes flipping every 10 mins
Once cooked spirinkle with s&p, drizzle a little balsamic, and serve!
These were so delicious I craved them all week! Who craves brussel sprouts!?!? Seriously, this girl! I cannot wait to make these again!
HAWAIIAN PORK AND COCONUT CAULIFLOWER “RICE”:
3-4 lb pork shoulder
Can of crushed pineapple in water or natural juice
2 tblsp grated ginger
Sprinkle of Salt and pepper
Combine all ingredients in crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Once cooked shred and enjoy.
1 med cauliflower
1/2 tblsp coconut oil
1/2 white onion chopped
1/2 tsp cardamom
3/4 cup lite coconut milk (I used canned)
Pulse cauliflower in food processor until it resembles rice
Warm med pan on med high about 1 min
Add coconut oil
Once melted add onion
Cook until soft then add cardamom
Stir about 30 sec then add cauliflower
Stir and add s&p
Pour in coconut milk. Simmer/sauté about 10 mins until liquid is absorbed.
We serve it with coconut aminos (soy free soy sauce)
The first time I made it we didn’t tell our son it was cauliflower, and he ate it up! 🙂
So there you go, I kept my promise, and you got 3 recipes instead of 1! Talk to you next week!
