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 😃✌️
