    Cauliflower Rice

    • 1 head cauliflower (or however much you want)
    • 2T olive oil
    Optional Spices and Seasoning:
    • 1/2 t. ground curry
    • 1 green onion, finely chopped
    • dash each of cayenne pepper, sea salt, ground black pepper
    • 1 T. olive oil
    1. Microwave cauliflower on high in a covered dish to soften it, checking it once a minute until it has softened. DO NOT ADD WATER, as it will become gummy. There is plenty of moisture in the cauliflower.
    2. Process the cauliflower in a food processor until it is the size of rice or couscous, either using a plain steel blade or a shredder blade. Alternatively, you can shred it with a hand-held grater, or even a knife. The key is to make it fine.
    3. Saute the cauliflower in a pan with oil and any additional seasonings you desire--garlic, ginger, tamari wheat-free sauce, curry, or just pepper.

    Grilled Chicken with Walnut Pesto Sauce
    4. Chicken
    5. 3-4 Chicken Breasts
    6. Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning to taste (or just some cracked black pepper)
    7. Pesto Sauce
    8. 4 oz fresh basil (3 ½ cups)
    9. 1 cup walnut halves and pieces
    10. 6 garlic cloves
    11. 1 cup olive oil
    12. 1 tsp sea salt
    13. Juice from ½ a lemon
    14. Heat your grill over medium high heat for approximately 10 min. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken breasts with either the Trader Joe’s seasoning or with just some black pepper. Turn grill down to low and place the chicken on the grill. Close the lid and grill for 7-10 minutes. Flip the chicken, close the lid, and grill for another 7-10 minutes. Remove the chicken and cover with tinfoil and set aside. Now it’s time for the pesto. In a food processor add the walnuts, garlic, sea salt, and olive oil. Process until smooth. Add the basil and lemon juice and process again until smooth. Slice the chicken and spoon the pesto sauce on top to serve.

    Warm Arugula Salad
    15. 6 strips nitrate free bacon diced
    16. 2 shallots finely chopped
    17. 7 oz arugula
    18. 1/4 cup olive oil
    19. Handful of chopped walnuts
    20. Ground black pepper to taste
    21. Place the arugula in a large salad bowl and set aside. In a medium sized skillet brown the diced bacon. Add the shallots and saute with the bacon until the shallots are translucent. Add the olive oil to the pan and heat just until warm. Pour the olive oil, bacon, shallot mixture over the arugula and mix well. The heat from the bacon mixture will slightly wilt the arugula – this is what you want! Add some fresh ground black pepper and serve immediately topped with a sprinkle of walnuts.

    Dry Rub Burgers
    22. 1 ½ tbsp chili powder
    23. 2 ½ tsp paprika
    24. 1 tsp cumin
    25. ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
    26. ¼ tsp ground white pepper
    27. 2 1/2 lbs grass fed ground beef (makes about 7-9 medium sized burgers)
    28. sea salt to taste
    29. Mix all dry rub ingredients together. Form hamburger meat into patties and cover both sides generously with the dry rub. Let the burgers sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes before cooking. Either grill or pan fry about 4 minutes each side for medium, less for rare, more for well… (sprinkle on sea salt once the burgers are in the pan or on the grill).

    Sweet Potato Rounds
    30. 2-3 yams
    31. 3-4 egg whites
    32. 21 seasoning blend from Trader Joe’s or Oregon, Thyme, and Garlic Powder
    33. ground black pepper
    34. sea salt
    35. olive oil
    36. Slice sweet potatoes into round discs. Separate eggs and add as much 21 seasoning spice blend and black pepper as you like. Dip each sweet potato round into the egg mixture and lay flat on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Drizzle the rounds with olive oil and sprinkle on more seasoning – this is key – and then sprinkle on a little sea salt. Bake at 350 for 30 -40 minutes. The egg whites make these a little crispy, and I actually finished them under the broiler for about a minute which made them even crispier, but still soft and yummy in the middle.

    37. 2 lbs grass fed ground beef
    38. 1lb mild Italian sausage (I used Sicilian chicken sausage from Trader Joe’s)
    39. 1 red onion diced
    40. 4 cloves crushed garlic
    41. 2 tbsp dried oregano
    42. 2 tbsp dried basil
    43. 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    44. 1/2 tsp sea salt
    45. 2 tbsp olive oil
    46. 1 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes drained
    47. 1 small can of tomato paste
    48. 1cup organic black olives sliced
    49. 6 zucchinis thinly sliced(I used my slicer blade in the food processor for thin, even zucchini rounds – for more “lasagna” like noodles slice lengthwise with a mandolin slicer).
    50. In a large soup pot saute onions and garlic in the olive oil for about 3 minutes. Add ground beef and sausage and brown. Season meat mixture with all dry ingredients and add drained diced tomatoes and tomato paste and mix well. In a big lasagna baking dish place a layer of sliced zucchini and then ladle on a thick layer of the meat mixture and top with the sliced black olives. Top meat and olive layer with another layer of sliced zucchini and top with a final layer of the remaining meat mixture. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and back at 350 for 30 min. Let sit for 10 min before serving.

      1 chicken, cut into chunks
      1 tbsp. chili powder
      2 tbsp. curry powder
      1 tbsp. paprika
      1 tsp. cumin
      3 cloves garlic, chopped
      2 onions, chopped
      2 tomatoes, roughly chopped
      1/2 cup chopped cilantro
      2 tbsp. oil
      1 bay leaf
      1 cup coconut milk
      3 cup water
      Salt and pepper to taste
      Heat oil in big pot and fry onion and garlic for 1 minute. Then add the chicken and continue cooking for 3 minutes. Add all the spices and stir together well. Add the potatoes. Let cook until chicken and potatoes are tender. Add the remaining ingredients.

      Everyday Paleo Pizza
      2 cups almond meal
      2 eggs
      3 tbsp olive oil
      ¼ tsp baking soda
      1 tsp garlic powder
      1 ½ tbsp fresh rosemary chopped
      1 cup organic marinara sauce from Trader Joe’s
      1 lb Italian pork sausage nitrate free
      2 crook neck yellow summer squash diced
      3 green onions chopped
      Handful of torn basil leaves
      2 small tomatoes diced
      1/2 cup roasted red peppers diced
      Handful of sliced black olives
      Preheat your oven to 350. Using a spoon mix all crust ingredients together until it becomes very thick. Using your hands, form the dough into a ball. Lightly grease a pizza pan or a cookie sheet with olive oil. Place the ball of dough in the center of your cookie sheet or pizza pan and using your hands, push and pat the dough down into the shape of a circle (or an oval in my case…). You want to make the dough as thin as possible. Your pizza will be about 12 inches across. Bake JUST the crust in your pre-heated oven for 20 minutes. While your crust is cooking, prepare your toppings. If you use sausage like we did, this is when you should crumble it into a large saute pan and brown. After the crust if done, remove from the oven and evenly spread the marinara sauce over the crust. Add the sausage and all remaining toppings evenly over the sauce and bake again for an additional 25-30 minutes.

      Ginger Shrimp Salad
      1 lb medium shrimp (tails removed, cooked, and de-veined – I buy them frozen and already cooked)
      3 green onions
      1 tsp grated fresh ginger
      1/2 tsp crushed garlic
      Pinch of sea salt
      Palm full of red pepper flakes
      Juice from 1 lemon
      Fresh Arugula
      Olive oil to taste
      1 Avocado
      If you are using frozen shrimp like I did; thaw, drain, and pat dry with paper towels. If using fresh shrimp, remove tails, de-vein, and toss into boiling water. Bring the water back to a simmer. Once the shrimp rise to the top remove them and place in ice water. Then drain and pat dry with paper towels. Toss the cold shrimp with the lemon juice, ginger, garlic, onions, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Serve on a bed of arugula garnished with sliced avocado and top with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.

      Curried Hash

      2 sweet potatoes
      2 zucchini

      1/2 tsp sea salt (optional)
      1 tbsp curry powder
      1/2 tbsp cinnamon
      5 tbsp coconut oil
      Peel the sweet potatoes and rinse. Using a food processor or a cheese grater, shred the sweet potatoes and the zucchini. Using a hand held chopper, finely chop the shallots. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded potatoes, zucchini, shallots, eggs, and spices. In a large skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium, add the hash, and cook stirring frequently until the potatoes are soft and start to crisp up. Serve immediately. This is a great post workout snack!!

      Quick Curry Soup

      1 tsp cinnamon
      2 tsp ground ginger
      2 cans coconut milk
      2 tbsp coconut oil
      Chopped cilantro
      Saute the onions in the coconut oil until tender, add the ground beef and brown. Add all the spices to the ground beef and onion mixture and stir well. Pour in the coconut milk and add the sliced zucchini. Bring the soup to a simmer and let it cook for about 5 – 7 minutes or until the zucchini are tender but not too mushy. Serve with a little chopped cilantro for garnish.

      Stuffed Avocados
      3 -4 ripe avocados
      4 cans of Trader Joe’s tuna packed in water
      3 green onions
      3 celery stalks
      1 palm full of dried dill
      1 tbsp garlic powder
      fresh ground black pepper to taste
      grape tomatoes halved
      about 1 cup of Olive Oil Mayo- 1egg, 1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, pinch of sea salt, few shakes of cayenne pepper, 1 tsp yellow mustard, 1 cup olive oil
      Cut avocados in half lengthwise and remove the stone – leave the peel on. In a large mixing bowl mix together the tuna, celery, onions, and spices. In a food processor process for 5 seconds the egg, vinegar, mustard, cayenne pepper, and sea salt. For another 5 seconds of blending slowly add the olive oil until it makes mayo.
      Add the mayo mixture to the tuna, mix well, and scoop onto halved avocados and top with tomatoes.

      Chicken Sausage n’ Shrimp
      2 packages of gluten free chicken sausages halved and sliced (I used sun dried tomato from Trader Joe’s)

      2 sliced leeks
      1 sliced red bell peppers
      1 big bunch of chopped asparagus
      1 cup chicken broth
      1 tsp sea salt
      1/4 tbsp all spice
      garlic powder to taste

        1 squirt of honey - which i think you really dont need

        whip all of that up until creamy. i spread it in an 8x8 baking pan, but i suggest to go with something smaller. cook @350 for, like, 25 mins. keep an eye on it though because if you overcook it, it gets really dry. the filling was about 4T heavy cream whipped with cocoa powder to taste

          SoG Coconut Griddle Cakes
          - 1 cup finely ground unsweetened coconut. Easy to make by throwing shredded coconut in a food processor.
          - 1 egg

          Sandwich Fodder:
          - Bacon
          - Sausage patties
          - Eggs any way you want em. I like fried.
          - Or any other of your favorite breakfast foods

          1. First you will need to make the Coconut griddle cakes. These can be eaten on their own like pancakes but warning: they tend to be a little dry (great with butter and fruit though!). Mix the fine coconut and the egg together in your bowl. This will give you a nice batter. Cook on the stove in a little bit of evoo like pancakes. See picture below.

          2. Next, cook up your innards. Pretty self explanitory on the bacon and sausage. Cook the eggs however you like em. See picture below.

                Cool! I just glanced through them quickly, but that blackberry cobbler sounds insanely easy, and could be done with any berries. I'm definitely trying that!

                I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.

                        I have tried the pizza. Really good. Just make sure you roll it out really thin.

                            Thanks for sharing! I will definitely try the almond crust for the pizza. I tried a coconut one and it was horrible.... gave up on the idea of eating a primal pizza but you gave me hope :-)
