Almond-Ginger Dressing (Paleo)

20140529-222431-80671034.jpg

This dressing I made last night from ‘Slim Palate’ was amazing ! I would dip anything in it it has a nutty, refreshing, and slightly salty taste that is very pleasing. As well as a great source for essential fats, protein, and digestive support. All you need is…..

1/2 Cup of Almond Butter
1 1/2 Tablespoons of Aminos
1 Tablespoon of unseasoned Rice Vinegar
4 Tablespoons of water, the recipe called for two but it was too thick
1 Tablespoon fish sauce
1-inch knob of peeled grated ginger
2 Cloves of grated garlic

Amazing!!! I’ll be making this a lot 😃✌️

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 😃✌️

Paleo Chicago Hot Dog Skewers

My best friend and I played around with this recipe one night from Primal Cravings and I wanted to share it with everyone, if you’re craving a good ol’ hot dog but you want to stay Paleo true, you’re allergic to grain, or you just want to try a fun recipe out then here you are! 025

What You Need:

. 1 lb. all beef uncured hot dogs cut into 2-inch pieces

. 1 pint cherry tomatoes…. Campari tomatoes are my favorite, I can find them at Whole Foods sometimes

. 1/2 Yellow onion diced

. 8 Dill pickle spears

. 30 Sport Peppers or just go buy pepper vinegar and pull off the top and use those, same thing…in my pictures you’ll see Serano peppers since we like it hot and the store didn’t have sport peppers, but if you want to keep it traditional you’ll need sport peppers.

. 1 Tablespoon Celery Salt

Let’s Get Cookin’

. Make your marinade in a bowl and whisk thoroughly. Then add all your skewer ingredients to the bowl and coat everything with the marinade.

. Create your skewers and alternate the ingredients.

Beach Body Cleanse: Lunch Juice

20140514-193313.jpg

This juice aids in so many other ways than just slimming your waistline. Think healthy, not skinny and you’ll get there. This is my lunch on Day 2 of our 7 Day Beach Body Cleanse. Always remember to drink a glass of purified water after each juice, stick to light exercise, and plan your cleanse around some personal down time where you won’t be distracted by food and alcohol. 😃✌️

Honey Strawberry Paleo Dessert Smoothie

I am in the mood for something sweet but since I promised myself I’ll only eat beautiful food ☺️ I wanted to create something yummy without too much guilt.
1 organic banana
7 organic strawberries regular or frozen
1 tablespoon of raw honey
1 cup of organic full fat coconut milk

Blend on High until smooth
Top with raw honey and chia seeds if you like.

This should be a treat though 😇 bananas are very high in carbs.

Lamb Stuffed Avocado with Tztaziki Dressing

I’ve been craving something creamy and rich lately, so I decided to use the rest of my New Zealand Boneless Lamb Shoulder crock pot recipe.

Just take an organic ripe avocado, shave out the hole where the pit was to give yourself a little more room. Flash sautée the lamb with onion, curry, and a little pepper to taste. Remove the lamb and mix it with diced organic cucumber. You can place the avocado on top of my Slow Cooked Lamb Gyro Salad if you’d like. I just got home from a strenuous gym session so I want to pig out 😈. The dressing is just Roots Organic Tztaziki sauce and Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar. I use equal parts, I love this dressing ! It’s so easy to make, creamy, and only 30 calories a table spoon. This meal will help fill you up and keep your metabolism pumping !
