Bobotie--South African Paleo Meatloaf

Bobotie — South African Meatloaf

Amy No Comments

My Cajun Paleo Meat­loaf remind­ed me how much I love meat­loaf! It makes the per­fect week­day left­overs, and is so easy to take for a hearty home-cooked lunch at the office. But this isn’t just any ordi­nary meat­loaf, it’s Bobotie! Which is South African meat­loaf. I’m not exact­ly sure where it stems from, but I have had a long-stand­ing obses­sion with South Africa. They’ve got beau­ti­ful beach­es, great wines, and cul­ture like I’ve nev­er expe­ri­enced. I can’t wait until the day I vis­it and taste their 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 […]

Paleo Autumn African Stew

Paleo Autumn African Stew

Amy No Comments

Iron­i­cal­ly this dish was inspired by my Veg­an roommate’s recent obses­sion with Forks Over Knives, a cook­book with over 300 plant-based recipes. I guess it’s not all that iron­ic. I love my plant-based foods as much as any good Veg­an, I just like to eat ani­mal pro­tein with my plants. It goes with­out say­ing that I love sea­son­al foods, and after the Autumn veg­gies caught my eye, this African stew also remind­ed me of a deli­cious African Peanut Soup I had at the beloved Colophon Cafe in Belling­ham, Read more […]

Buffalo Turkey Lettuce Wraps Topped with Sheep's Milk Roquefort and Primal Ranch Dressing

Buffalo Turkey Lettuce Wraps with Primal Ranch Dressing

Amy No Comments

While every­one else has been talk­ing about brin­ing, stuff­ing, and bast­ing their turkey, I’ve been enjoy­ing a very dif­fer­ent turkey dinner–Buffalo Turkey Let­tuce Wraps! Every now and then the fat kid food junkie in me gets a crav­ing for Buf­fa­lo sauce, which usu­al­ly comes in the form of bread­ed chick­en on a giant bun of some kind, but with this dish you can enjoy the com­bi­na­tion of spicy buf­fa­lo and cool ranch dress­ing or blue cheese crum­bles (made with sheep’s milk of course) to your heart’s con­tent Read more […]

Paleo Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Paleo Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Amy No Comments

In dream­ing about near­ing hol­i­day cel­e­bra­tions, par­tic­u­lar­ly, a Thanks­giv­ing feast, I got a seri­ous crav­ing for sweet pota­toes! While sweet pota­toes are a veg­gie that is def­i­nite­ly high­er on the glycemic index, they have tons of vit­a­mins and nutri­ents that still make it a viable Pri­mal or Paleo option, par­tic­u­lar­ly for those who are con­sis­tent­ly phys­i­cal­ly active. For more infor­ma­tion on the health ben­e­fits and vari­eties, vis­it this post on Mark’s Dai­ly Apple. I’m with Mark, if you can find the Read more […]
