SUPPER’S READY: Beef & Broccoli Recipe

IMG_20170216_190816[1]
I found a simple, yet tasty, Broccoli & Beef recipe on Paleo Leap today that I doubled…The best part is that it’s a slow cooker recipe that took 5 minutes to put together!

KETO TIP: It’s a little high on sugars, so for those of us doing Keto-Paleo, just half the honey and apple.

It’s SHRIMP SCAMPI on ZOODLES tonight! Couldn’t think of a tastier way to end a chaotic day.

SUPPER’S READY: Baked Tuna Stuffed Avocado

IMG_20170208_192037[1]
KETO-PALEO RECIPE:
I’m so sad, tonight’s the last night for avocado meals. I keep seeing baked avocado and egg recipes on social media, so I decided to try Baked Avocados stuffed with tuna salad. It turned out much better than expected and will be made again when the next big avocado sale happens!_

BAKED STUFFED AVOCADO: Make tuna salad the way you prefer, stuff avocados. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Top with cheese if you’re Keto…pairs well with hot sauce and sweet pickles.

SUPPER’S READY: Twisted Cobb Salad

I lucked out and found some Boars Head Buffalo Chicken Sausage on clearance this morning and got inspired by the recipe on the package, so tonight’s supper was Buffalo Chicken Sausage Cobb Salad. Everyone LOVED it and I loved saving money.

Paleo Fajita Marinade

Paleo Flax & Chia Flapjacks

20140809_095932[1]

What tasty way to get a dose of flax and chia seed! Are you tired of eating the same breakfast day-in and day-out? Are you sick of eating eggs? Do you love pancakes but don’t have the time to make them in the morning? Here’s a super easy and healthy way to enjoy your pancakes and eat your eggs too. This is something my husband created one morning and has made ever since.

INGREDIENTS
4 Tbsp of flax and chia mix
1/8 tsp of ground cloves
1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
4 eggs

In a hurry? Use a ratio of 1 Tbsp of flax (or a flax and chia mix) to 1 egg, add 1 dash of ground cloves & nutmeg and 2 dashes of cinnamon.

Chocolate Hazelnut Zucchini Cupcakes

chocolatehazel

When I saw this recipe on The Paleo Mom, I called the kids over and we decided right then and there that we needed to make these. I will say my son originally thought the idea of zucchini in a dessert was a tad bit weird but he quickly changed his mind with one bite! Give your child some vital antioxidants, beta-carotene, vitamin C, folic acid and calcium with these tasty cupcakes!

These are VERY good and I must say that the icing on the cupcake is spectacular.

INGREDIENTS
I tweaked the original recipe a bit in order to make 24 full cupcakes

5 small zucchini’s, shredded
5 medium eggs
3 cups of roasted hazelnuts
1/2 cup Muscovado sugar (I found it at Whole Foods for $4.99/lb)
1/3 cup Palm Shortening
1/2 cup Tapioca Flour
1 1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 Tbsp Vanilla extract
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp sea salt

For the complete directions, CLICK HERE!

ICING
1 cup of Palm Shortening
8 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

ICING DIRECTIONS
1. Add together in pot and melt on medium heat. Do not boil!
2. Let chill in fridge before whipping.
3. Use Ziploc sandwich bag as an icing bag for a smoother icing finish.

Thanks The Paleo Mom!

Breakfast Muffins

20140519_190911[1]

Today’s recipe was Egg Cupcakes (aka Breakfast Muffins) from Everyday Paleo. I doubled the recipe because these perfect early morning stomach pleasers not only taste great but they freeze well too! KID APPROVED RECIPE!

INGREDIENTS
(single batch = 18 muffins)

* 12 eggs
* 1 green onion
* 2 zucchini squash
* 8 slices of cooked bacon
* 1 cup of roasted red onion
* 4 cups of fresh spinach
* Black pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS
1. Whisk eggs together in one bowl.
2. Clean and prepare veggies for food processor (remove stems, roasted peppers*, etc…).
3. Process veggies until finely chopped (NOT pureed!).
4. Combine vegetables, chopped bacon and eggs.
5. Add 1/4 cup of mixture to muffin cup.
6. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 22 minutes.

*ROASTING PEPPERS
Clean and slice red or orange peppers length-wise and place them on a cookie sheet. Drizzle olive oil on them and cook for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Turn over once and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

BAKING TIP
Use parchment baking cups. Not only can you re-use them twice (at least I did) but you will not go through the hassle  having “batter” sticking to the pan.
