Paleo Nut Bars

John Opincar's Blue Corner

I went paleo/gluten-free almost a year ago.  I was eating quite a few Kind Bars but they get expensive.  So I searched the internet for a “homemade kind bars” and ran across this recipe.  I’ve played around with it quite a bit and feel that mine is perfected (at least for my tastes).  Enjoy.

  • 1.25 cup whole almonds
  • 1.25 cup whole pecans
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup flax seed flour/meal

  • 1/4 cup honey

Optional ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

Turkey Lemon Meatballs

London Paleo Kitchen

I love meatballs. I love them because they can be any one of a billion flavour combinations, and because they can be made with any type of mince you happen to have in the freezer. Also they’re equally as good cold in your lunchbox as they are for dinner the night before. So maybe think about making double…

Serves about 2 (hungry) people
400g turkey mince
1/2 a preserved lemon, or the zest and juice of a fresh one
2 garlic cloves
1/2 an onion
2 tbsp chopped parsley
Salt & pepper

Stick everything apart from the meat in your food processor and blend until everything is finely diced (or chop everything by hand if you don’t have anything to blend with). Mix this into the turkey until well blended, and shape into even sized meatballs.

The mix for this is quite wet and sticky, so I’d recommend oven cooking…

CFCL Paleo – Katy’s Avocado Chocolate Mousse

London Paleo Kitchen

Katy told us that this recipe is adapted from the Practical Paleo cookbook which she highly recommends.  All we can say is that it sounds absolutely amazing, and full of good stuff!

Here’s how to make it:

Combine 1 medium avocado, 2 tablespoons coconut milk, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, dash of maple syrup or honey to taste, dash of pure vanilla extract, cinnamon, pinch of salt.

If you want you can add a banana too, just cut down on the syrup or honey.

Blend in a food processor (or just mash together).

Top with cocoa nibs or whatever you fancy.

CFCL Paleo – Naama’s Chicken with Butternut Squash & Asparagus

London Paleo Kitchen

When Naama sent this to us she said it was ‘hardly a recipe’ – crazy! We think this sounds not only exceptionally tasty, but quick and easy as well. Proof that not all paleo food has to be complicated to taste great! Even comes with a dessert recipe.

Ingredients:
-Chicken with skin (any parts you want)
-Butternut squash
-Asparagus
-Olive oil
-Salt
-Pepper
-Any other spice you like (we have one from Israel which is called Shawarma mix)

Heat up your oven to 220c
Place chicken on a roasting pan, sprinkle with olive oil and spices. Place chicken in hot oven.
Peel and chop the Butternut Squash, and after about 15min add it to the chicken.
Bake for a further 30min (give or take)

Place asparagus on a baking sheet, sprinkle olive oil, salt and pepper and place in the oven 12min before the chicken is ready.
Enjoy 🙂

CFCL Paleo – Vicki’s Salmon, Spinach & Coconut Curry

London Paleo Kitchen

Everyone has been raving about this on the CFCL paleo Facebook page – and it’s easy to see why! It sounds like a few of you have already tried this but we thought we should snap up Vicki’s recipe and get it on the blog to share it with everyone. We can’t wait to try it!

Ingredients serves one
Red onion
Leek
Dried chilli, powdered ginger, turmeric – 1 heaped tsp each
1 salmon fillet, cut into chunks
Any other veg you fancy!
300ml coconut milk
And handful each of spinach and coriander

Chop your onion and leek and fry in a bit of oil until browned. Add in your spices and cook for a few more minutes.

Add in the salmon, veg and then coconut milk – the measure is approximate but you just need to make sure the liquid covers the fish and veg. Leave to gently simmer…

Celeriac Mash

London Paleo Kitchen

Alicia and I each have our own recipes for celeriac mash, so we thought we’d share them both with you and you can choose the one you like best.  Or try them both… although obviously not at the same time, that would just be silly.

So here’s my recipe first.  Strict paleo-ers look away now, this contains dairy!

What you need:
One celeriac, peeled and cut into cubes.
3-4 garlic cloves, crushed
500ml Vegetable stock
10-20ml double cream
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
10g ghee or butter
Small bunch of fresh chives, chopped

How to make it:
Put the celeriac in a large saucepan with the vegetable stock and garlic. Add more water if necessary so the celeriac is covered.
Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer until the celeriac is soft.
Drain the liquid.
Mash the celeriac with a fork.
Add…

[Paleo] Sausage & Sweet Potato Frittata

Paleo Frittata_2

Paleo Update:  Since my last post, many of you have left comments or contacted me to say you’re interested in hearing about the January Paleo Challenge that Jon and I are currently doing.  So I’ve decided to include a “Paleo Update” with each Paleo-inspired recipe that I post.  I’ll give you a quick inside look at how we feel throughout the month and what we think about the lifestyle.

It honestly hasn’t been as painful as one would expect a “diet” to be.  That’s not to say we haven’t had cravings (sugar for me, beer for Jon) and/or been grumpy at all.  For better or worse, here are some of our random thoughts and realizations so far:

  • A Paleo lifestyle is not cheap!  LOTS of fresh produce, grass-fed meats, wild-caught seafood and odd products like coconut oil really add up.  I’m not saying the cost isn’t worth it but just be ready…

[Paleo] Pancakes with Blackberry Compote

Paleo Update:  Day 11 and Jon and I are feeling really good!  In my last Paleo post, I mentioned that I’ve been going to bed hungry a majority of the time.  I’ve definitely felt better the past couple days – my stomach must be getting used to the amount of food I’m consuming.  Also, Jon and I have been heavy handed with the dinner veggies (i.e. extra cauliflower or extra brussel sprouts).  We’ve also been making a conscious effort to add even more protein to our diet – Jon’s now eating packed tuna for breakfast (Yuck, not for me!) and we cooked up an extra batch up chicken breasts just for snacks throughout the week.

If you’re on Pinterest, I’m sure you’ve seen a pin for pancakes made with just eggs and a banana (like this one).  I’ve had a few variations…

Meal Plan Sunday + Mushroom/Sausage/Escarole soup recipe

(Not As) Big Bob

Hi friends! We have had such warm weather this weekend! Yesterday Bob & I took Stanley for a walk up to Starbucks — it was about a 3 mile walk round trip – and by the end of the trip I was getting too warm in my sweatshirt. It was wonderful! I hope you enjoyed your weekend, too.

Now we’re watching some football and I’m about to get started on dinner prep for tonight, which reminded me to post our meal plan. I’ll also post our grocery list if that helps!

For the record, the new recipe I tried last week with the shrimp was DELICIOUS. It ended up looking like this:

shrimp stew

And we ate it over cauliflower “rice”. The leftovers may have been even better the next day for lunch. I highly recommend it. Took about 15 minutes to make total!! The only thing I did differently was double…
