Winter Throw Together

I originally heard about this recipe from my boyfriends sister. She eats a paleo lifestyle about 95% of the time, mainly because she is a workoutaholic and likes to feel good and eat super clean, not because she has too, but she is one of the most beautiful people I know and I would kill to have her body. So I decided to give this recipe a try once I had heard all of the rave about it! It really was delicious! I would definitely make this again! It is so colorful, nutritious, and delicious!

What you will need for this delicious concoction!

1 bunch of kale
1 butternut squash cubed and peeled

preheat the oven to 375 F
then get a large skillet and place over medium heat, add your coconut oil, then place your butternut squash in the skillet and drizzle 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar over the squash. glaze on each side for 5-6 minutes
meanwhile rice your cauliflower when the squash is glazed top with cauliflower, 1 tablespoon garlic, 1 tablespoon of rosemary, 1/2 cup broth cover and cook down
in a separate pan over medium heat add your chopped bacon, after it has rendered some fat add your venison or other ground meat and chicken , cook until browned
while the meat is cooking add the chopped kale to the cauliflower pan and recover to cook down
now add the other tablespoon of garlic, rosemary to the meat mixture and stir to combine
then combine all into a baking dish and mix thoroughly, then add salt and pepper to taste

Chicken Enchilada Bake

Finally a day to really get my cook on! I decided that I wanted to try an enchilada recipe so I set out in search of what I thought would be a good one! We have a winner! It was absolutely divine and all organic and healthy for you!

3 8 ounce cans of tomato sauce
2-3 garlic cloves chopped
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons coriander

stir in the chicken for 1 minute and then take off heat

you will need 1 head of cauliflower, I used my handy dandy food processor and riced my cauliflower, you will put this as the base of dish mixed with 1/2 cup of sauce

once you have laid the bottom layer, spread your chicken mixture ontop then add the sauce, cover with foil and cook for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. Then remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

Easy Chicken

It’s a Tuesday! I was wanting to do something very simple for dinner tonight because I had to work late and I needed to run some errands after work. So I’ll keep things short and sweet here too! But first, I have to rave about this amazing marinade that I used. It is called paleo chef by Steve’s original maple mustard flavor! It is all natural and amazing so go buy some! He also has several other dressings,marinades, and dips! Not to mention 15% of the proceeds go to a great cause! check it out! I hope everyone had a great Tuesday!

Steve’s original link
yummy

For the chicken…
Marinate it in steves mustard maple marinade overnight or for at least 30 minutes in the fridge
Preheat the oven 375 and cook for 30 minutes or until done
Pour chicken and marinade in a baking dish and cook

I also cut up zucchini and squash put them in a gallon ziplock bag sprinkled them with garlic infused olive oil and a garlic habanero seasoning blend
I roasted them in the oven 350 for 25-30 minutes or until desired tenderness

Then came the orange,red, and yellow bell pepper sliced and drizzled with garlic infused olive oil and a jalapeño infused vinegar baked in the oven at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until desired tenderness
