paleo, oh paleo

like a rockstar

despite my going off paleo, i’m still cooking paleo meals for troy and adding in carbs and dairy for myself.

adding a limited amount of sugar, dairy, and carbs back into my diet has made me feel full again. i’ve found when i stick to “real” food {avoiding processed things}, i feel an incredible difference in my energy level and my skin is clearer. {i still have a weakness for all desserts.}

that being said, here are our favorite paloe-rific recipes from the last few we’ve tried:

  • shakshuka {t’s favorite}
  • chicken with creamy sun dried tomato sauce {my favorite- i added an appetizer of italian bread that i tore off piece by piece and dipped in some olive oil and balsamic vinegar. would you judge me if i told you i was drooling right now just thinking about it?}

ps thanks for your recipe suggestions the other day. we can’t wait to try them!

pps you can find my jacket here.

    I LOVE sun dried tomatoes! I buy the smoked ones that come in a plastic pouch, like this:

    I make a sun dried tomato cream sauce with green peas (fresh or frozen) and bacon bits. Yummy!

      Oooo! That sounds amazing. Would you mind sharing your recipe with me?

        Sure! It’s actually one of the few things I’ve “made up” from what I had on hand.

        1 cup cream
        1.5 oz. (half a bag) Sun Dried Tomatoes, julienned
        Pepper to taste
        1/2 cup fresh or frozen peas, cooked
        1/4 cup bacon bits

        Heat cream and tomatoes in saucepan over medium high heat and stir until cream has thickened. Add pepper to taste. Stir in cooked peas and bacon bits. I usually serve over farfalle (bow-tie pasta) or fettuccine and garnish with grated Parmesan cheese. I think it would work just as well as a sauce for chicken or pork. This is enough sauce for 2-3 servings.

    The Tucker’s have been trying to eat more “clean”! Chris came home the other night and proclaimed that his stomach was going to hurt because it hasn’t seen a veggie in so long. Ha!
