Paleo Frittata

20140520-220254-79374542.jpg

   Today was my first day making a 'frittata' and it came out amazing. 😍 I followed the basic recipe from 'Nom Nom Paleo' but added what I had in the kitchen by means of protein. I made my frittata for two, for my boyfriend and I and here's the recipe. 

What you need:
8 free-range/local/or organic eggs

2 tablespoons organic coconut oil
Pepper to taste

I used salt in the recipe as she instructed, however next time I’ll opt out, it was salty enough.

Choice of protein, I used hickory smoked 365 brand bacon from Whole Foods.

I also added some organic spinach as well.

4 tablespoons of organic coconut milk

Preheat your oven to 350.

Heat a skillet, that you can also put into the oven on medium.

Melt the coconut oil, then add your protein and veggies

While your meat and veggies cook in the skillet….

Whisk your eggs, coconut milk, pepper and whatever else you’d like in there up really well.

Once your meat is pretty well cooked about 5-10 minutes, add the egg mixture on top.

Cook for 3-5 minutes to set the bottom.

Place your whole pan into the oven for 15 minutes.

Then broil for 3-5 minutes.

It should look something like this, let it cool for 3 minutes and carefully slide it out of the pan. I slid a spatula underneath to loosen and then I slid it onto my cutting board for serving.

I will definitely be experimenting more with this breakfast dish, keep an eye out 😃✌️

Gluttonous Grain-Free Paleo Apricot Vanilla Bean Granola

1. Ingredients Paleo Apricot Vanilla Granola

     This recipe is for anyone trying to shed some winter weight from the Holidays this year, avoid grain and gluten, or you just want a recipe for a delicious and amazingly aromatic granola snack/cereal. The flavors of the sweet apricot are favoring to the blend of the vanilla bean, coconut, and southern apple butter. I’ve given it to people who aren’t into granola and they loved it. It is really easy to make, this is also a kid friendly cooking lesson because no sharp objects.

Now before I start, I must give credit to the lady who posted this recipe 🙂 Fresh 4 Five .

What You Need : 

2 cups of Raw Almonds 

1 cup Raw Pumpkin Seeds

1 cup Raw Sunflower Seeds 

1 cup raw Coconut Flakes

1/4 cup Chia Seeds  

1 Tbsp. Ground Vanilla Bean Good News ! Vanilla bean has lots of mental health benefits 🙂

1-2 Tbsp. Tangerine Zest….the original recipe calls for orange but I like the sweet and tart of the Tangerine rather than the more bitter orange. However, I’ve made it both ways and it is awesome !

1/2 cup Pure Maple Syrup 

1/4 cup Olive Oil

1/4 cup Apple Butter I like to use apple butter that isn’t commercialized and has no added sugar.

1 cup Dried Apricots  (or you can always use your creativity and add another kind of dried fruit…cherries….raspberries…pears…etc.)

2. Combine Paleo Apricot Vanilla Granola

1. Pre-heat your oven to 275

2. Slowly break up the almonds by adding 1/2 cup at a time in your blender or food processor until they are broken up, but not too much that they resemble flour.

3. Combine everything in a bowl EXCEPT your apricots

4. Bake Paleo Apricot Vanilla Granola

4. Divide your mixture in a thin layer, use two cookie sheets or make two batches. Bake for 30 minutes and stir every 10 minutes…

5. Once your granola looks golden brown remove it, stir in your chopped apricots. Put it in a container and refrigerate. 🙂

6. Enjoy !5. Serve Paleo Apricot Vanilla Granola

I like to mix mine with full fat coconut milk, a great breakfast ! or meal replacement snack. This is a meal full of brain fuel to enhance your day to its full potential 🙂
