Here are a few new menu items for the week.
Pineapple Cashew Fried Rice
Crunchy Coconut Chicken Fingers with Peach Honey Mustard
I will tag this in the newly created “Non-Paleo” section but it was too yummy not to share
Every Day Paleo is where I found my all time favorite Paleo recipe, the Two Minute Tuna Salad http://everydaypaleo.com/2012/04/21/two-minute-tuna-salad/
Here is a new recipe recently listed on Every Day Paleo that I am drooling just thinking about:
Spinach and Salmon Salad with Arugula Pesto. It’s on the menu this week, I will let you know how it tastes!
I will also try, Bruschetta Chicken with Zucchini Pasta this week.
Ok, I admit it. Guilty as charged! I have not remained consistent in my Paleo diet so I have been avoiding any updates on my blog. Paleo or not, I continue to cook a new recipe or two or three every week and never remember it again.
Therefore, I am now going to use this site to record ALL recipes I try. That way, I have a good record of the good (and bad) eats I serve up my family each week.
Here is what’s cooking this week:
Dumplings and Fried Rice
We went to lunch at Tong Dumpling today and picked up 2 dozen frozen dumplings. Shrimp, Pork and Chives…the kids love them. Delish! This will be an easy weeknight meal this week.
Apple Bacon Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
I am just obsessed with the website How Sweet Eats. Here is a recipe I will make to use up our sweet potatoes
Broiled Salmon, Mashed Sweet and Russet Potatoes and Roasted Cauliflower
This was my own creation.
1/2 teaspoon of the following:
DaKine Hawaiian Da Rub
Mix it up in a bowl and spread on salmon
Broil for 8-10 minutes
Mashed Sweet and Russet Potatoes
Boil two sweet potatoes and russet potatoes
Mash with 1/2 and 1/2, butter and add chopped sage with salt and pepper to taste
Drizzle cut cauliflower with salt and pepper and olive oil
Roast at 400 F for 15 minutes
Crispy Avocado, Bacon and Tomato Salad
Tequila Lime Flank Steak Fajita Salad with Chile Lime Vinaigrette
Steak Mole with Cilantro
Wow, no excuses! I haven’t posted any Paleo recipes on my blog in months. In all transparency, I fell off the wagon. However, I am still finding and cooking up a few Paleo recipes a week.
Here is one I will try this week.
Paleo Orange Chicken – Compliments of Health-Bent
In a medium size sauce pot, add the orange juice, zest, ginger, coconut aminos and chili garlic sauce or sriracha. Set over medium heat and let simmer to reduce and thicken while the chicken cooks. In a saute pan, heat 3 T of the fat of your choice, over medium high heat. Add the chopped chicken thighs and cook until a nice brown crust has developed on the chicken pieces, about 6 minutes. Add the chicken to the sauce pot and stir to coat with the orange sauce. Serve topped with sliced green onions. *Taste your oranges. If they don’t taste orange-y, then neither will this dish. Use tangerines if you gotta or add a teaspoon of sweetener until you’re satisfied with the flavor.
Here are a few of my favorite Paleo Snacks. I love to snack, so I have to get creative. I know a few of these aren’t completely Paleo, but I try my best. Share your ideas too, I need more!
