Paleo Slow Cooker Red & Yellow Pepper Marinara Sauce

Paleo Slow Cooker Red & Yellow Pepper Marinara Sauce

  So many people I speak with tell me about their love/hate relationship with pasta. They miss it since going Paleo. They go back and eat it from time to time, only to learn later that their body does not enjoy it as much as their mouth does. Then comes the point where they finally […]

Paleo Slow Cooker Chicken Pad Thai with Veggie Noodles

Paleo Slow Cooker Chicken Pad Thai with Veggie Noodles

This recipe has been brewing in my head for a while now and I finally got around to trying it. I’ve long had a theory that if you nested veggie noodles on top of a liquid base in a slow cooker that they would steam cook nicely, without turning to mush. I can now report […]

Pulled Garlic Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Pulled Garlic Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

  After whipping up another killer pulled pork & sauce recipe this week, I decided to give pulled chicken with a sauce a try. This is the result. This is a flexible dish because the garlic chicken can be used in other applications (salads, wraps) without the sauce, in addition to smothering it with the […]

Beef Shank Soup with Bok Choy

Beef Shank Soup with Bok Choy

I love beef shanks. They are inexpensive and their high fat content yields a delicious broth with tender stew meat. When you don’t have time to make bone broth and want to make yourself a beefy soup to nourish yourself, they are king. I highly suggest you use a grass fed cut when cooking with […]

One-Pot Chipotle Bacon Chicken

One-Pot Chipotle Bacon Chicken

  This recipe combines 2 of my favorite things on the cheap, bacon and chipotle peppers. Cooks all in one pot and always leaves me looking for more spicy bacon bits even after I’ve eaten it all. This is something that I whip up in 10 minutes and usually consume all it before it cools […]
