Paleo Power Salad

Paleo Power Salad with Pistachio Cilantro Dressing

Amy No Comments

Some­times there’s noth­ing more refresh­ing than a crisp sal­ad loaded with all your favorite top­pings! It was one of those weeks where I just didn’t have enough greens in my life, and this bright, fresh and fla­vor-packed sal­ad was the deli­cious result. I love using greek yogurt as pro­tein-rich base for sal­ad dress­ings, but sim­ply swap it out for organ­ic (maybe even home­made) may­on­naise if you’re strict­ly dairy-free. And I just can’t get enough of the roast­ed pis­ta­chio oil from Trad­er Joes. This sal­ad Read more […]

Paleo Pork Chile Verde

Pork Chile Verde

Mex­i­can food has always been a weak­ness of mine. Some days there’s noth­ing I want more than a giant bean and cheese bur­ri­to loaded with gua­camole and sal­sa verde, which for the most part, I’ve giv­en up. But just because I don’t eat flour tor­tillas or legumes doesn’t mean I still can’t enjoy the rich fresh fla­vors of sal­sa verde! Lucky for me, there are hun­dreds of authen­tic Mex­i­can restau­rants in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia that make great sal­sa verde, so it nev­er real­ly occurred to me to make it at home. Read more […]

The 3 weeks of my South East Asian Adven­ture are almost com­ing to an end, which means more new recipes com­ing your way!!! I have some incred­i­ble tra­di­tion­al Bali­nese and Thai recipes to share when I get home, but for now here’s one I’ve had stashed away to hold you over. I guar­an­tee you’ll love it! I recent­ly cooked a din­ner par­ty for one of my favorite local clients. Not only did she plan the whole menu and help me in the kitchen, she also taught me some of her authen­tic favorite Mex­i­can recipes Read more […]

Avocado Chicken Soup — A Paleo Latin Pho

Amy No Comments

I absolute­ly LOVE chick­en tor­tilla soup..but that is obvi­ous­ly not in the Paleo or Pri­mal vocab­u­lary so I was thrilled when I found this grain-free Avo­ca­do Chick­en Soup that has all the deli­cious fla­vors of tor­tilla soup with­out the corn and flour! It reminds me of a Latin fla­vored Pho with the hearty fla­vor­ful broth and fresh kick from the scal­lions and cilantro. Avo­ca­do Chick­en Soup (Adapt­ed from Mama Miss) (Dif­fi­cul­ty-Easy; Serves 4) 2 organ­ic free-range chick­en breasts 3 tsp extra Read more […]

Creamy Green Gazpacho

After hav­ing the con­ve­nience and deli­cious fla­vor of home-grown toma­toes right from the gar­den, I nev­er want to buy toma­toes at the store again! And I won’t have to because we have so many of them! I want­ed to use them up before they went bad, and what bet­ter way to do that than a cool Sum­mer gaz­pa­cho? I liked the idea of this Epi­cu­ri­ous ver­sion with lots of veg­gies and greens packed in for a creami­er and more sub­stan­tial ver­sion of the old toma­to stand­by. This recipe is meant for those cook­ing Read more […]
