Brussels Sprouts & Bacon

This recipe comes from Michelle Tam over at Nom Nom Paleo. Now, before I continue, I should probably admit that I hate brussels sprouts with every fiber of my being. The last time I ate brussels sprouts was about 12 years ago, while visiting a health-conscious uncle. I can still remember this clearly. Although I was […]

Paleo Tex-Mex Casserole

Paleo Tex Mex Casserole

Mustard Grilled Pork Chops

This recipe comes from The Paleo Periodical. I was looking for a meat to pair with the roasted cabbage slices and we hadn’t had pork chops in a while, so that sounded good. Since we don’t eat a lot of apricots normally, this caught my eye. IngredientsMakes 6 portions:$9.50 – 2.12 lbs Pork Chops$2.15 – […]

Roasted Cabbage Slices

This recipe comes care of Katie over at Wellness Mama. While preparing the Mustard Grilled Pork Chops I realized I need a nice veggie side dish to go with it. Since we hadn’t eaten cabbage in awhile, I figured I would give it a try. IngredientsMakes 6 portions:$3.26 – 3.3 lb Red Cabbage$0.95 – 3 tbsp Coconut […]

Paleo Mini Meatloaves

This recipes comes from Lea at PaleoSpirit.com. The key thing to remember when making a “paleo” meatloaf is that traditional breadcrumbs and wheat-based flours are out (they all derive from gains). Therefore this recipe relies on coconut flour to hold everything together. Another fun twist: rather than bake it as a single, giant loaf, Lea […]
