No sugar? No problem! Our friend No Sugar has visited us many times before. In fact we LOVE when No Sug' comes into town! No Sug' is a flirt and is full of compliments always telling me how rested I look,how productive I'm being,how fresh and clear my skin is and how slim I'm looking. Oh No Sug' stop,tee hee! Just stop it,(blush) you're too kind! Week 1 guidelines: Do not eat sugars of any kind,real or artificial. No maple syrup,honey,agave nectar,Splenda,Stevia,molasses,sucrose,high fructose corn syrup,fructose,any processed sugar,etc,you get the idea. Mark Sisson has an excellent blog post I highly recommend reading which discusses why you should avoid sugars and explains the different types of sugars out there. ]]> Crispy Sesame Ginger Pork Ribeye Sun, 24 Jun 2018 12:46:09 +0000 Crispy Sesame Ginger Pork RibeyeThink fried pork chop but bigger, fattier, juicier, and with an ungodly amount of flavor ]]> Garlic Aioli Kebabs Sun, 24 Jun 2018 12:46:09 +0000 Garlic Aioli KebabsIs there anything more primal than skewered meat over a fire? I didn't think so. ]]> Garlic and Yam Roasted Chicken Sun, 24 Jun 2018 12:46:09 +0000 Garlic and Yam Roasted ChickenI made another simple yet comforting dish today and it’s a perfect fit for this Fall weather. Since I don’t have any experience cooking a whole turkey, I might making this chicken again for the upcoming T-Day! ]]> Giant Stuffed Mushrooms Sun, 24 Jun 2018 12:46:09 +0000 Giant Stuffed MushroomsI posted a stuffed mushroom recipe back in December but I will be the first to admit,that this one is soooo much tastier! Although a bit more complicated then my previous recipe,it’’s well worth the extra effort and overall,is still not that difficult to make. My family had a blast making these stuffed shrooms and they were just fabulous. ]]> Chicken Paillard with Arugula & Tomato Salad Sun, 24 Jun 2018 12:46:09 +0000 Chicken Paillard with Arugula & Tomato Salad A major perk to this whole diet change is that dinner takes much less time to prepare. Fewer options means fewer decisions to make! Nah, it hasn’’t been too hard. There are tons of options from cuisines around the globe, you’’ve just got to hone your recipe searching skills to suit. There are no slow grains to cook and many of the fresh, unprocessed foods we are eating require little effort to taste fabulous, the ingredients speak for themselves. The inspiration for this quick dish comes from Lincoln Road in Miami, it seems like each time I visit, I end up lunching on a patio enjoying this refreshing meal. It’’s light and simple and provides the perfect fuel for powering an afternoon of intense shopping in the Miami heat. Use the highest quality chicken, the juiciest tomatoes and freshest greens for this easy, bright tasting dish. ]]> Grilled Lamb Sirloin Sun, 24 Jun 2018 12:46:09 +0000 Grilled Lamb SirloinThere’s an old saying: lamb is a meat best grilled. Okay, that may not be an old saying, but it should be. Something about lamb and direct heat go together really, really well. So when Lava Lake Lamb sent me some of their lamb sirloin for a recipe, I knew it was going directly on the grill. This recipe uses a simple marinade that combines maple syrup and spicy brown mustard to complement the lamb’s natural deliciousness. ]]> Chicken and Chard Sun, 24 Jun 2018 12:46:09 +0000 Chicken and ChardI have been in need of fast recipes this week and here is one I made for lunch yesterday that was so tasty that it really felt like I put more effort into the dish than I actually did! Paleo food never has to be boring! Use your spice cabinet to keep your meals exciting,even on your busiest days ]]> Buffalo in a Pig’s Blanket Sun, 24 Jun 2018 12:46:09 +0000 Buffalo in a Pig’s BlanketWe’re extremely lucky. We happen to have two tenants that live in our basement who happen to be in no position to pay their agreed upon rent! How is this a good thing, you ask? Well, our favorite freeloaders are my younger brother and his girlfriend, both of whom are quite underemployed. They owe us big time as we enter the 14th month of no rent payments. So, when we need a favor, they’re usually very accommodating. Often, this means free babysitting. (Kidding! We Love you Uncleandii & partner!) A few nights ago, we abandoned the home team leaving our basement dwellers in charge while we attended a party for Stacy’s company. As we sprinted out the door, in desperation for time away, we shouted – feed them whatever you find! The girlfriend, who is quite awesome, was like… you guys WROTE a cookbook, obviously I can just cook something out of there! However, when we got home, all we heard about from the hairy Uncle in our basement was how awesome dinner was. You totally missed it, she made BACON WRAPPED MEATBALLS! And thus, the idea to recreate her stroke of genius meal idea ensued. Let’s all take a minute to thank The Girlfriend for not just taking care of our kids, or just feeding them paleo foods – but for inventing a recipe! ]]> Mediterranean Beef Stew Sun, 24 Jun 2018 12:46:09 +0000 Mediterranean Beef StewBeef stew,also known as beef bourguignon,is good,but boringâ?and we personally think it tastes like straight up sour wine and that is not very tasty,especially by the spoonful. So we've added a bit of balsamic vinegar and raisins to counter the sour with a bit of sweet. We're also swirling in a nice,briny,herbal pesto to brighten up the braise. Another change,we're not using a crock pot! The dutch oven allows liquid to evaporate from the pot,thus creating a thicker,more intense flavored stew. And heck,I would rather eat in 2 hours than in 6 hours,agreed? ]]> Sun, 24 Jun 2018 12:46:09 +0000 ]]> Roasted Eggplant and Sweet Pepper Dip Sun, 24 Jun 2018 12:46:10 +0000 Roasted Eggplant and Sweet Pepper DipBack when I played tennis, which was one broken ankle and more than a few years ago, my team may not have always have won the match but, by god, we always had a great table of food. Not being one of the best players on my team, I liked to think that I somehow made up for having lead feet by bringing a homemade offering of something tasty . Making “dip” was my favorite contribution – it doesn’t sound like much, but hey, they kept me on the team! I wish I had known about this dip back then, although it might have been too distracting to the people on the court for all the oohing and awing that would have ensued. This recipe is a hybrid of Ina Garten’s Roasted Eggplant Spread and a basic recipe for baba ghanoush. I couldn’t decide which recipe to go with, so I came up with a blend of the two. Call it indecision or call it inspiration – as long as you call me when it’s ready! (Har…) I roasted the vegetables in the oven, but this would be even better with grilled vegetables! We ate this as a mid-afternoon snack with some gluten-free almond crackers; you can be sure it would disappear equally fast with pita triangles, vegetable sticks, bread of any sort, or even as a topping for pasta or zucchini noodles. Be sure to pour some high quality extra-virgin olive oil over the top – the sweet fruitiness of the olive oil contrasted with the more earthy and spicy eggplant and peppers is phenomenal! I highly recommend Kotinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Kasandrinos Imports. (Join their facebook page and look for special deals.) Seriously, you may want to double this recipe – or if you are taking it to a tennis match, triple it and keep some at home for yourself! ]]>
