  • What is your favorite paleo or primal recipe and why?

    My favorite paleo recipe is apple cinnamon chicken because it is fast and easy to make and it tastes delicious, almost like a dessert.

    Directions: Slice up chicken, cook in frying pan with coconut oil. Shred and apple into pan with grater and season with cinnamon. Enjoy!

        Turkey Squash Chilli

        I have various methods of making this but essentially, it's ...

        Brown off some diced turkey (and optionally chicken) with a chopped onion
        Boil some squash and puree it
        Pour in a carton of chopped tomatoes, some chillies, garlic, ginger, ground coriander, optionally cumin and sea salt.
        Stir in the pureed squash
        Toss in a chopped bell pepper
        Reduce
        Eat

        Love it! Quick, easy, nutritious, medicinal (more so with a sprinkle of turmeric) and seriously flavoursome.

        Accompany with wilted spinach, over tenderstem broccoli, glob of probiotic natural yoghurt on top ... what a feast! Eat as much as you want until full, leftovers make great lunch.

          I have literally thousands of recipes, but my favorite still remains a 1" thick rib eye on the grill (med-rare) with a slab of butter on top as a finisher. Why? Because the grilled fat is absolutely heavenly.

          Recipe wise, I have a pressure cooker recipe that is great in the winter months: "Berried Treasure" Pork Chops

          Brown chops in butter. Deglaze cooker with unsweetened cranberry juice. Add a can of whole cranberry sauce, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and a bunch of sweet potatoes peeled and cut into large cubes. Nestle chops on top. Cook at 15psi for 6-8 minutes depending on how thick the chops are and how big the potato chunks are. Use natural release method to cool (can simmer sauce to reduce further into a GREAT gravy). YUM. I will look for an alternative to canned sauce this year. I'll just be making my own cranberry sauce. I have a favorite recipe for that, too!

          Why? It is a comfort meal and very quick. Makes good left overs.

            Take a whole coho salmon, dry off with a paper towel, pepper and salt the cavity, shop up some leaves and unusable ends of the celery + onions onto a huge sheet of parchment/wax paper, put salmon up top, dab a few dabs of coconut oil over, roll the wax paper around (and use extra sheet if it's sticking out, use ties to secure if you have to), slide on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated 425 degrees F oven for 45 min. Open the paper envelope, and broil to crisp (but not burn) the skin for 4 or so min.

            Let rest for as long as you can keep the family at bay. Eat with skin, and buttered veggies from underneath or, my personal fav - fresh salsa(!!!). Save the rest for adding in soups, salads or crisping up in fat.

            Salmon. Heaven.

              I'm relatively new to the primal scene, but here's my newest fav (as of last night)
              Primal Chipotle Peppers

              Chicken tomato and chile stuffed peppers, smothered with cheese on top.

              1 orange bell pepper per person, cored
              Chopped Chicken
              Tomato
              Onion, Garlic
              Chipotle Pepper as desired
              Cheese

              Saute garlic and onions in butter, then add tomato and cook it down a bit. Fry chicken in coconut oil, add to tomato mixture. Stir in chipotle and other seasonings for desired heat and flavor. Stuff Peppers with mixture and top with cheese in abundance. Bake at 350 till peppers are soft. Serve with side salad or broccoli.

              Caution. Will knock socks off.

                That Apple Cinnamon Chicken sounds great. I think I'll be trying that out this weekend.

                  Nice, fatty steak or hamburger cooked over charcoal grill.
                  Seriously, I like it really simple. Grilled salmon with onions, butter and some chopped walnuts is awesome.

                    Wow, this looks really good. When I try this out I will probably use ground turkey instead of diced turkey.

                      Ground turkey should work - I've not done it, but don't see why not. Adjust the amount of squash and chilli, accordingly; with diced turkey, you can have quite a lot of pulp. I hope you enjoy it.

                        I really like slow cooker pulled pork. There are a number of recipes on various paleo blogs, but basically it just comes down to sticking a pork shoulder in the slow cooker with some broth, garlic, and Mexican spices, and then adding tomato sauce, salsa, or BBQ sauce to taste.

                          A slab of steak or salmon and a big ass salad with balsamic, bacon and avocado.

                            OMG, OMG, how could I forget. I think the pulled pork would actually take a close 2nd to this super-awesome lasagna (zucchini instead of noodles) - this is the basic recipe: Zucchini Lasagna | Wellness Mama

                            I modified it a bit, I used 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 ground pork - I find that to be a very savory combination for most ground meat recipes. I also opted for spicier pasta sauce - I used 1 jar Arrabiata sauce and the other jar was just some sort of garlic/chardonnay pasta sauce I had bought on sale. I piled on the spices just like the recipe suggested. The end product was amazing! Boyfriend was smitten, too. Plus it makes for a good packed lunch/dinner and is quick to eat without the mess.

                              On my way home from the gym this week I stopped by Whole Foods and bought a beautiful pastuered New York Strip, some mushrooms and an onion. Once I got home I went to the garden and picked some kale and sauted it with the mushrooms and onions in coconut oil. Added the steak and cooked it to medium with a bunch of spices and garlic. Simple and easy...Yum!
