New spin on my fave salad

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!

Falling off the Paleo Wagon

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.

Hello Stranger!

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

http://www.health-bent.com/poultry/paleo-orange-chicken

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs (cut into bite size pieces)
  • 3 T fat (coconut oil works well here)
  • juice of 2 oranges*
  • zest from 1 orange
  • 1 t fresh ginger
  • 3 T coconut aminos or wheat-free soy sauce
  • 1 t chili garlic sauce or sriracha
  • 3 green onions, chopped

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.

 

Cooking Paleah

I am a bit obsessed with finding new recipes. My family will attest to rarely having the same meal twice. As much as I love experimenting, I never have kept of record of what I have made and how it turned out. This is the place to do it!! Starting today…. I am going to share and record my favorite recipes.

I go through various culinary exploration and obsessions. So for now, I am cooking Paleo. For those of you familiar with a Paleo Diet, skip over this section. For those who need a quick tutorial, shall we consult Wikipedia?

The paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era—a period of about 2.5 million years duration that ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture. In common usage, such terms as the “Paleolithic diet” also refer to the actual ancestral human diet.[1][2] Centered on commonly available modern foods, the “contemporary” Paleolithic diet consists mainly of fish, grass-fed pasture raised meats, vegetables, fruit, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, salt, refined sugar, and processed oils

Ok – sounds a bit archaic right? Yes, maybe… but since I starting cooking Paleo I have really felt my energy level increase and who doesn’t like a lot of meat!? I admit, I don’t cook Paleo for every meal. As much as I love substituting Cauliflower for rice, it can be time consuming. So I have committed to one Paleo meal a day…. Dinner! And here is where I am going to record my Paleo Adventure.

Welcome to CookingPaleah. Get it, my name is Leah. My husband thought this up. Genius.
