Paleo pancakes!

This morning everyone in my house was having pancakes and waffles and I am sitting there thinking this is so unfair! So I did something about it and made some that I could eat! I hope you like them as much as I did!

Ingredients
2 bananas
1 egg
1 tablespoon nut butter of choice

Mix it all together turn the stove on spray some coconut oil in the pan pour your batter in the pan but not too much or it will be too hard to flip! Once it starts to bubble through flip it! Once it’s cooked through on the other side it’s all done and ready to eat!

I also popped some Cajun chicken sausage in the oven at 350f while I made my pancakes!

Breakfast of champions!! 🙂

Breakfast scramble!

This morning I was packing up to head out of town with my dads side of the family so I cooked two 8lb pork butts and shredded them and then tossed it with some sensuous dinosaur bbq sauce. Man oh man did it smell delicious! While I was working on that I decided to cook breakfast for mom and my stepdad before I made them go on a walk with me and our 2 precious and might I say good looking labs!

What I did was sauté some zucchini squash green red and yellow bell peppers in some olive oil salt pepper and garlic to taste until tender.
In a separate bowl whisk together 8 eggs with salt pepper and garlic to taste then add the eggs to the veggies and stir until cooked through.

Serve piping hot with a glass of orange juice! Delicious !

Happy Subd

Veggie dip!

Having food allergies can be one of the most frustrating things sometimes. In my family we love to have our fresh cut veggies and ranch dip. It has been a staple in the family for as far back as my grandpa being a little boy. So one day I thought…That Enough!…I want to be able to enjoy my fresh veggies with a dip too. My Dad and his wife had gone to a little garden convention there where they live and got to taste all kinds of good organic fresh foods. They then passed the information on to me, I started to do all of my research, and well the rest is history!! I have found a new love, and it is great to have on hand for snacks or to take on road trips, or to just fill that hungry tummy when your in a bind. All of the dips are gluten free, but some of the dips do contain milk…so be careful and read your ingredients! Quick Go buy some fresh veggies and order you some of the dips to try…all of the ones that I have tried thus far have been delicious!

now if your wondering what I use for the mix I use a cup of vegan mayonnaise it is earth balance brand but I have made my own….of course that takes a really long time to do but it is way healthier and truly paleo, I will have to post that recipe at a later date, with one cup of tofutti sour cream, it is vegan as well…of course I make this too but again for the quick fast and easy you can just buy them, with one pack of season…let it sit in the fridge to meld all of the flavors..about 30 minutes to an hour and then DIG IN!!

I posted the link to the website below! I hope you like them just as much as I do!

Paleo Enchiladas!!

Today was my first day back into waking up early, getting some type of workout in, and a full day of work, plus grocery shopping, and then fixing a delicious healthy dinner! I stumbled upon this recipe while we were driving 10 hours to Colorado. My oh My was it delicious….I don’t remember the last time I had enchiladas! This is a great alternative to the real thing! I hope you guys find it as satisfying as I did! Happy Wednesday!

Preheat your oven to 350F

Ingredients for the sauce
can of tomato paste ( i like muir glen)
one cup of beef broth
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chili powder

put all the ingredients in a sauté pan and bring to a low boil and then reduce heat to keep it warm until you pour it over your enchiladas

Ingredients for your enchiladas!
head of cabbage with 10-12 leaves pulled off
1 pound venison
1 onion chopped
2 garlic cloves chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

in a skillet brown your meat with the onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. meanwhile put a couple cups of water in a pot and bring to a boil, once it has reached a boil set your cabbage leaves into the pot and cover with a lid, then turn off the burner and let the cabbage leaves soften. Once softened take some tongs and remove one leaf, set it into your baking pan and fill with your meat mixture, roll over so its like a burrito, continue this process until you have used all of your meat. Next pour your sauce over the top of your enchiladas. Set in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes. Yum Yum Yum!

I made my mexican cauliflower “rice” to go with it….I posted that recipe in a previous post…Taco Tuesday I believe!
