Sweet & Spicy Burger Bowl

Sweet & Spicy Burger Bowl

The simplicity of summer is firing up the grill and having delicious food with minimal clean up. I have a well-established affinity for all things spicy and pork, and did a deconstruction of some of my favorite chorizo pineapple burgers from PaleOMG for a quick and easy burger bowl the other week. In spite of … Continue reading

Crock Pot Barbacoa

Crock Pot Barbacoa

We had a pot luck at the gym last week and, as usual, members impressed with their serious culinary skills. People were practically licking the plate of carnitas that Courtney shared, and MJ wowed everyone with some paleo/primal/WLC-compliant ice cream (bananas, coconut milk, and pineapples) accompanied by some fancied up freezer fudge). The past few … Continue reading

Ribs.

Ribs.

This is my favorite type of recipe: simple, delicious, and utterly flexible. I like to use boneless beef short ribs or country-style pork ribs, as they both have a higher meat:bone ratio than spare ribs. Once you have your meat, all you have to do is season it, slice some onion (optional, but I like … Continue reading

Pineapple Stuffed Chorizo Meatballs

Pineapple Stuffed Chorizo Meatballs

It all started last March with the most delicious burger I’ve had in years: PaleOMG’s Pineapple Stuffed Chorizo Burger. Holy. Smokes. I love chorizo, I love burgers, and I love pineapple. Combine them into a triple whammy topped with a tasty avocado puree and you have pure decadence. I’m pretty sure Michael and I polished … Continue reading

WLC Meal: Greek Feast

WLC Meal: Greek Feast

In a change from the previous WLC, Michael and I are doing this one at an intermediate level. This is the subject of a much longer, non-recipe-related blog post that has been marinating for the last few months, but, the takeaway is that I’ll be posting a wider variety of recipes this time around. And, … Continue reading

Paleo Freezer Stock 2013

First, some background. Indulge me while I stress out a little bit…or skip down about five paragraphs to the cooking details. For the past few months, I’ve been coping with a nagging shoulder injury. After the initial acute flare up in August, I’ve had sharp, stabby pains during attempts at movements like pull ups and … Continue reading

Soup’s On

Soup’s On

With the weather slowly taking on a wintry chill (with odd, balmy weekends, intermixed, providing much appreciated respite from the frosty temps that soon return), our dinners have moved away from the cold, cool crunch of salads and towards warmer, heartier fare. Soups filled with meat, root vegetables, and leafy greens are the ultimate one … Continue reading

Paleo Meatloaf

Like many comfort foods, meatloaf is delicious, but not that photogenic (hence, no pictures). But, it is super easy to throw together and bake! With little food in our refrigerator and minimal time to prep due to the gym’s November 1 opening, this was a time saver to pre-prep and then throw in the oven … Continue reading
