Spring brings me thoughts of seasonal greens, fresh and brightly colored salads, and the start of picnic season! This week I made delicious Paleo Baby Back Ribs with Sweet and Smoky BBQ Sauce with this Shredded Brussel Sprout and Kale Salad in a simple Lemon Dijon Dressing.

Slow Cooker Paleo Baby Back Ribs

Amy No Comments

What is it that is so enticing about baby back ribs?!?! Even as a kid when I would barely eat any meat, I always wanted to go to Tony Romas for a kid's basket of baby back ribs! Slightly crazy I still remember that, right? But they've always been one of my favorite foods. I mean who doesn't love to eat with their hands and get barbecue sauce all over their face? The cave woman in me just loves this Primal (and Paleo) comfort food. I rarely eat ribs but when I saw them in Sprouts advertisement this Read more [...]

Walnut & Cranberry Broccoli Salad

As promised, a delicious Broccoli Salad with Walnuts, Dried Cranberries, and of coures, Bacon! This cold salad is a great side dish to any Spring or Summer meal. I highly recommend making your own mayonnaise for this one since most of the in-store products are filled with canola oil or other seed-based oils that are hydrogenated and are high in trans-fats. With homemade mayo you can avoid all this and it's super easy to make! I like Mark Sisson's recipe. You can also have some fun and play around Read more [...]

You may already know about my truffle obsession. If not, check out my truffle ravioli or truffle quinoa! And this, ladies and gentleman, is my Primal version of a truffle Alfredo. It starts with a traditional bechamel sauce using unsweetened coconut milk, an almond-meal based roux, and delicious Italian truffle cheese from Trader Joes (which you can also find at Whole Foods and other specialty stores). I added cauliflower purée to thicken the cheese sauce and sneak all those extra vitamins and Read more [...]

Eggplant Salad with Pine Nuts, Raisins & Parsley

Amy No Comments

I have an unconditional love for eggplant--I love it in any way, shape, or form! So I always get excited about new ways to enjoy it. This simple and fresh salad recipe fits right into my Mediterranean craze and is so simple. Simply toss the eggplant with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast in the oven before combining with toasted pine nuts, sweet raisins, a bit of balsamic vinegar, and fresh organic parsley. It is great on its own as a salad during those hot weather months or as a side dish to Read more [...]
