    What is your staple dish?

    Shop Now
    Which primal dish do you keep turning to or have the most?

    For me personally I have veg and fish - I bang both in the oven (bit of dill weed on the fish - and the veg in a casserole dish with natural veg stock) and half hour later they're done. Simple, quick and easy.

    Bacon and eggs. When there's meatsauce for pasta, I replace the pasta with sliced zucchini, red onions and peppers fried in oil and garlic salt.

    2-3 chicken thighs (depending on size) with 1tbsp of coconut oil on each, roasted in the oven for 40 minutes, with steamed veggies (carrots, peas, broccoli and cauliflower, usually). I could honestly eat this everyday and never get bored of it.

    it's a two-way tie:
    a really big primal omelet (with prime rib, spinach, mushrooms, cheese, and anything else that crosses my path)

    or

    big ass salad.

    I don't really have a staple meat dish, although I do like throwing large chunks of meat in the crock pot and just adding some spices/herbs. I've got a 4lb pork loin cooking at home right now.

    For veggies, I default to roasting everything. =] There's nothing I won't roast. This time of year, I make a lot of sauteed squash (yellow and zucchini), peppers, and tomatoes. I don't like to have the oven on as often when it's hot outside.

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

    the recipe is VERY forgiving, so you can really adjust it in lots of ways...

    ingredients:
    1 lb chopped kale or collards (I buy the bags of them pre-washed/cut)
    1 onion
    2-4 (or more) slices of bacon
    about 1.5 cups of chicken stock (or you can do any combination of chicken stock/coconut milk for more calories and a different taste)

    You'll need one pot of boiling water to blanch the greens for 5-6 minutes, drain and rinse in cool water to stop the cooking process

    Slice the bacon strips into small strips and toss them into a pot on medium-high heat. Cook until starting to crisp up
    Add the onion and cook until soft
    Add the greens and liquid
    Bring to boil and then simmer until the liquid reduced/almost gone - about 20 minutes.

    If you like your greens a little crunchier, you don't have to mess with pre-cooking them....just add them to the bacon, onion and liquid and cook them for a little bit longer. This method works better with kale than collards.

    Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
