Shredded Brussel Sprout and Kale Salad with Lemon Dijon Dressing

Shredded Brussel Sprout and Kale Salad with Lemon Dijon Dressing

Amy No Comments

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. The crunchy toast­ed almonds and hearty shred­ded brus­sel sprouts and kale make for a great crunchy tex­ture, while the Lemon Dijon dress­ing and nut­ty Pecori­no per­fect­ly bal­ance out the bit­ter greens. This sal­ad also goes great Read more […]

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 […]

Paleo Broccoli Salad with Walnuts, Cranberries and Bacon

Walnut & Cranberry Broccoli Salad

Amy No Comments

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 […]

Spaghetti Squash with Black Truffle Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Amy No Comments

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 […]
