The name speaks for itself, as does the photo. Very yummy, especially in the summer time.

The combination of flavors is amazing.
Cured and slow braised, this pork belly is meltingly tender with a complex, rich flavor.
This recipe works for when you feel sick and when you are hungover... =)
A simple delicious winter squash snack
Cassava or Yuca root is a staple food item in many countries. This is a good way to prepare the cassava and it will work well with a protein such as steak, pork or chicken.

Hearty spicy salad
Our first dinner for the New Years' 2012 Whole30 inspired by the chicken-roasting-leading-lady herself, Julia Child. Simply decadent.
Thanksgiving weekend my parents were coming up for dinner. My mom loves to be the cook and doesn’t always take well to others cooking for her. For Easter dinner she insisted on preparing a ham and put me in charge of the main vegetable dish. She actually requested I make scalloped potatoes. My parents are a bit older (pushing late 70′s / early 80′s) so I know exactly what my mom expects to be eating. I have decided to try an experiment and see how well a paleo side dish goes over instead. The quest is to make something similar to scalloped potatoes.
Classic Provençal cuisine
Nutritious twist on a traditional breakfast. Coconut oil adds a wonderfully creamy quality to the kale, almost like a very light sauce.

A puffy sweet potato fritter.
OG-ish comes from "mostly like Olive Garden's". And Whole30 good too!
Kinda like plantain chips. but better.
Over the last 15 years or so I seemed to have developed the horrible habit of skipping breakfast. When I first discovered Crossfit, The Zone and Paleo living it was one of the first of a host of important and wise nutritional advice I was given -START eating it!!! I then came to realize that breakfast didn’t have to be defined by certain “breakfast” foods. First thing in the morning I can now be found eating last night’s dinner leftovers, or other foods most people would think strange to start the day with. I now know better. For me, breakfast has to be fast as I am usually rushed to get to work and begin completing a million of the tasks that I will never actually get caught up with I saw this recipe in an old Performance Menu issue and thought that bars would be an easy to transport snack, and decided to give them a try.I doubled the recipe below and it fit nicely into a rectangular cake pan. I was able to make 1.5 dozen squares that are about the size of half of the palm of my hand. You could easily squeeze out 2 dozen if you wanted to make the bars a bit smaller.

Lamb chops make any meal an occasion, and the sauce makes these babies extra special.
Soup Ingredients: 1 tbs olive oil 1 tbs butter 1 large white onion, minced 1 clove garlic, minced 3 cups gluten free chicken broth 28 oz canned diced tomatoes 1 tbs thyme 1 tbs basil 1 tbs pepper 1 tbs red chili flakes salt to taste Soup Instructions: Heat the oil and butter in a large soup pot over medium. When melted, add the garlic and onion. Saute until translucent, but not browned. Add all the other ingredients and bring to a boil. Cook on low for at least 30 minutes, but you can let it simmer for over an hour. After 30 minutes, put half the soup in your food processor, and blend until smooth. (I say half, because I like the larger chunks of tomato in my soup, put it all in if you like it to be completely smooth). Return to pot and serve. Spicy Grilled Chicken Ingredients: 2 lbs chicken breast tenderloins juice of 1 lemon 1 tbs paprika 1 tbs olive oil 1 tbs tabasco 3 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 tsp black pepper 1 tsp red chili flakes 1/2 tsp salt Combine all marinade ingredients, and pour into a gallon sized ziplock bag, over the chicken. Marinate at room temperature for an hour, or up to 12 hours in the fridge. Grill over medium heat, about 5 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink. I served this along with a simple green salad. A really nice light meal with a lot of kick to it.
Crock pot breakfast.
Quick and Easy Stirfry!
I love Shepard’s pie and this recipe is great. I love the use of pumpkin and sweet potato which is not only better for you but much more flavourful than white potatoes. Very hearty meal and makes great leftovers.
Have you noticed how often I’ve been using my crockpot lately? That’s because I’m lazy. And most people are too. That’s why my friends have been asking for more crockpot recipes. Lazy bastards. You know who you are.
Slowly cooked oxtail with clean pickled vegetables
Warm, savory, life-affirming soup.
Tender, delicious pork and goat meatballs in an Asian inspired sauce.
Crispy, caramelized ripe plantains and avocados with quick pickled onions.
An inexpensive cut of pork that roasts up moist and tasty!
Back before I discovered paleo I was a big fan of curry dishes on rice. My old diet consisted of a lot of rice and pastas. I have to say that my vegetable replacements of cauliflower and spaghetti squash are so amazing, that I don’t even miss the old crappy grains. I like this dish in the fall/winter on a cold day. But hey! It’s easy and good anytime. :)
Crockpot meals are easy. Thus why you should make it.
Smoked with sassafras wood, marinated in lemon and honey, and stuffed with peppers & onions! Delicious!

Warming turkey and chicken in a soft spicy hot squash and tomato sauce
This was a super easy and very yummy dinner. One of the yummiest of the season I would say. I am super thrilled because the last few times I have cooked pork tenderloin I thought it was boring. In fact, this tenderloin sat in my freezer for quite sometime as I wasn’t really looking forward to eating it. Not this time!!! I was inspired by my Jamaican grandmother. She had a certain spice mix that she used to use on the Christmas turkey every year – even passed the tradition on to my mom who did it for years and years. Now it’s my turn, and I have found it not only tasty on turkey, but chicken, and pork as well.
Perfect for company or every day! You could sub the butter for ghee and *poof* its Whole30 compliant!
Authentic recipe, great way to use beef cubes!
