Paleo Shrimp Nachos with Pineapple Salsa

Paleo nachos? You mean “nachos without cheese?!”

That’s right… and these are so good, you won’t even miss the cheese. Plus, Siete is making Paleo life even easier with their Grain Free Tortilla Chips. The Lime flavor is my favorite, but Sea Salt would work well in this recipe, too. While these chips are made from Whole 30 approved ingredients, all forms of chips are excluded from the Whole 30 program. The shrimp and pineapple salsa from this recipe, though, would make a great salad!

Modified Monday: Bacon Apple and Cranberry Salad

I kept the title of this salad pretty generic, but for those of you from Wisconsin, you might recognize this as the Wisco Salad at Ian’s Pizza. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and savory! I go through spurts with this salad where I’ll keep my fridge stocked with cooked chicken and bacon to throw this salad together for lunch. The recipe, as written, will make about three salads.

Maybe you just flat out have too much going on (or are even just too lazy, which is fine) to put a lot of effort in to a meal.

This post is for you: No recipes to follow, no measuring, no running to the store last-minute for the ingredient you forgot – just creating flavorful food (that isn’t boring!) to properly fuel your body.

Maple Mustard Brussels Sprout Salad

I went the first roughly 25 years of my life not eating what are now three of my favorite foods: Bacon, Brussels sprouts and potatoes. What?! My mom would try everything to try to get me to eat potatoes, but it was a no-go. I was never a huge fan of bacon and I don’t think I even saw a Brussels sprout until college. I can’t imagine my life without them, now!

This salad recipe uses two of these foods: bacon and Brussels sprouts. And kale. If we’re being fair, I don’t think I had Kale until my late twenties, either.photo_feb_12_17-06-50-14-pm
