Grilling season is here, folks! And these grilled chili lime chicken tacos are the perfect way to kick it off.
I love crockpot recipes, especially during the week. Ground beef tacos may seem like an odd thing to make in the crockpot since they don’t take too long to prepare the traditional way, and most crockpot versions ask you to brown the meat first.
I travel quite a bit this time of year for work and, let’s face it, airports and unfamiliar cities sometimes make it hard to find good choices. I’m actually heading to Nashville today for the week, so I thought I’d pull together some of my favorite Paleo and Whole 30 compliant “on-the-go” items that make travel less stressful.
Believe it or not, I was a vegetarian for many years. I would make these Ultimate Dragon Bowls from Daphne Oz almost every Monday – it was one of my favorite recipes, I never got sick of it, and anyone I ever made them for loved them! I’ve been wanting to “Paleo-ify” the recipe for a while.
My mom is reading more and more into the Paleo diet. She texted me the other morning and asked for ideas on what she can drink besides water. I can’t tell you how much I love, love, love when my friends and family ask me questions about making healthier lifestyle choices. That is the exact reason that I started this blog.
I sent her a few ideas, but wanted to share them here, too!
Okay – so, technically, if you do not have hard boiled eggs prepared, this recipe would take a pan and a pot. Plus a mason jar for the vinaigrette. One-Pan, One-Pot Mason Jar Winter Salad?
At first glance, this recipe may seem a bit complicated with the long ingredient list, but, if you look carefully, the bulk of it is spices. I encourage you to give it a shot – it’s SO yummy.
I would typically serve a dish like this over arugula, anyways, so I went ahead and added it into the cole slaw so it could get coated in the yummy cilantro-lime dressing.
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. Or maybe you are just starting to dabble in to a Paleo or whole food diet and don’t want to get too crazy yet. Or maybe you are a bad cook. 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.
Normally I prefer to make any sort of chili, beef or stew in the crock pot–it’s just so easy to set it and come home to a ready-made meal at the end of the day. This chili, however, only takes about 10 minutes to chop and prep everything and then 15 minutes of active time at the stove (browning the meat, adding in the ingredients). You then can let it simmer while you clean up the kitchen…. or kick back with a glass of wine (La Croix if you’re on Whole 30)!
If you live in the north, you know that 50 degree weather in March calls for grilling out, which is exactly what we did this past weekend. Even if it is dark at 6:00 pm. The flavorful burgers sandwiched between crisp hashbrown cakes made summer feel like it was that much closer. Continue reading
