The Paleo Secret Thanksgiving: Pumpkin Spice Bread

This delicious bread is made with protein-rich, gluten-free almond flour, lots of immune boosting spices and winter squash

This is a delicious recipe you can feel good about eating over the holidays. This is also low in sugar (only honey and stevia are used for sweeteners). I like a lot of spice so if you don’t like as much pumpkin spice taste, just cut the spice in half.

Fluffy Acorn Squash Pancakes

October 9th, 2012 | Breakfast, Recipes, Sides

I had some left-over acorn squash from dinner the night before and I was curious if I could use it to make pancakes. These turned out really well… super yummy! The pancakes were light, fluffy and delicious. You could also use honey versus stevia if you would like. I am sure you could also use pumpkin, sweet potato or butternut squash for this recipe as well.

Blueberry mint power smoothie

Blueberry Mint Power Smoothie

September 5th, 2012 | Breakfast, Recipes

Helpful suggestions when making smoothies:

  • Avoid tons of fruit with high sugar content, like bananas and tropical fruit.  Stick with frozen berries.
  • Change it up and experiment with different frozen berries and veggies.  Add in a little ginger.  Try some nuts/seeds.  Mix it up!
  • If you cannot have coconut: Use water or almond milk instead of coconut milk.  Instead of coconut oil, use a handful of soaked and dehydrated nuts or seeds for your fat source (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, almonds, etc.).  Or use a half an avocado.
  • If you are using raw eggs and/or frozen raw liver, make sure you get the best quality.  Get these items in particular from a farmer or source you trust.  The liver should be from grass-fed animals and the eggs from pasture-raised chickens or ducks.
  • If consuming raw liver it is suggested as a precautionary measure to freeze it for 2 weeks prior to consuming to kill any pathogens.  (We have been doing this for over a year and have had no problems) Keep Reading…
What do we eat for breakfast

What the Heck Do We Eat for Breakfast?

August 31st, 2012 | Beef, Breakfast, Eating, Recipes

We get a lot of questions asking about what to eat for breakfast when starting a REAL food, “paleo” type diet.  Most people do well for dinner, but get a little tripped up on what to make for breakfast and sometimes lunch too.  The first thing we like to tell people is to get rid of the idea that breakfast has to look or be a certain way.

In America, we have this concept that breakfast has to look like cereal, oatmeal, pancakes, pastries, doughnuts, muffins, fruit, fruit juice, etc.  Talk about starting the day with a sugar overload!  Try to step away from this mindset and switch to one that allows you to have anything for breakfast that you would have for lunch or dinner.  We both work full-time jobs and don’t have a whole lot of time in the morning.
