Breaded pork tenderloin dinner

May 31, 2012

1

I love this meal because it is full of all the guilty pleasures I thought I had to give up when going on any healthy diet.  Breading, frying and gravy.  That’s right, breaded, fried meat covered in gravy….and it’s totally paleo!  The trick is to know what ingredients are healthy to use in place of […]

Fresh berry tart with hazelnut ginger crust

May 28, 2012

This simple dessert is sure to be a crowd pleaser.  Who doesn’t like fresh juicy berries?  The crust is simple, and completely paleo.  If you don’t have hazelnut meal, you can make your own by running hazelnuts through a food processor until they are finely ground.  You could also substitute almonds, walnuts or pecans if […]

Grilled lamb chops with cilantro lime pesto

I love this twist on pesto.  You can pour it over any protein you like, not just lamb.  It has a light summery flavor with a zing of citrus that has an amazing contrast to the rich flavor of lamb I just love.  Today I served the chops simply over a bed of organic baby […]

Grilled rockfish with roasted bruschetta

With the warm weather there’s nothing quite like the taste of some fresh bruschetta.  Since I can’t put it on bread anymore, I figured I’d roast it on the grill, and pour it over some fish.  For this recipe I used rockfish which has a mild flavor similar to bass, but you can use any […]

Quail egg drop soup

May 23, 2012

Traditional egg drop soup is made with cornstarch, which isn’t paleo.  Here I’ve substituted the cornstarch for arrowroot powder, which has the same thickening effect.  I’ve also swapped chicken eggs for quail eggs, which are simply adorable!  If you can’t find quail eggs you can always just use 2 chicken eggs, and 1 egg yolk.  […]

Hot and sour shrimp soup

This is another Thai inspired soup from my Around the World cookbook.  I love the contrast of the spice from the chilis, and the zing of the lemongrass and lime juice.  The heat level will vary depending on how hot your chilis are.  I used serrano, and left the seeds intact so it was pretty […]

Chicken salad with homemade mayo

May 19, 2012

When I was growing up, after a big holiday meal, my mom always made the leftovers into a salad, whether it be chicken, turkey, ham or even egg.  I never liked it much as a child, but as my tastes have changed, a good chicken or tuna salad hits the spot every now and then. […]
