Paleo Food

Otherwise known as: What on earth do you eat?

Caramelized carrots & purple cabbage with Beelers ham

Granted. . . at first the children exclaimed, “This IS NOT breakfast!”.  It only took a minute to convince them veggies for breakfast are a great idea.

Cauliflower Soup & Applegate Garlic & Artichoke Chicken Sausage

Only one of my children has an issue with the soup. . . and he has an issue with all kinds of soup (and is the one that needs bone broth the most).  I made this using 2 quarts of chicken bone broth + one head of cauliflower + garlic + basil + a few TBS of heavy cream.

Carne Asada in lettuce boats with avocado & coconut aminos, served with sweet potato fries cooked in coconut oil

Everyone gobbled this meal up, no drama at all.  Honestly I could have eaten more and may go for double the amount of meat next time.  We seasoned the steak with our favorite pepper blend and grilled for a few minutes.  Easy peasy.  Sweet potato sticks fried in coconut oil and topped with Celtic Sea Salt is HEAVENLY.  No joke.

My morning coffee. . . life is good!

Sometimes dessert is a necessity. . .

The other night was extremely stressful. . . events of the evening coupled with my infertility treatments left me craving chocolate.  So, while hubs ran to Dairy Queen for something intrinsically evil. . . I whipped up a healthier treat for me at home.  I found these Almond Fudge Brownies over at The Food Lovers Kitchen. I topped it with a few Dagoba dark chocolate chips and a drizzle of that delicious cream.

Eat Well.  Be Well.
