Spiced Okra and Bacon (Paleo/GF/DF)

Spiced Okra and Bacon (Paleo/GF/DF)

November 29th, 2012 | Pork, Recipes

I had no clue what we were going to have for dinner the other night so I went to the fridge to see what the options were. I had 2 items that desperately needed to be eaten before going bad: thawed out pork belly slices and okra… voila… this dish was born. Okra is a relatively new thing for us to eat (since going paleo/primal) and I am always trying to find different ways to cook it.

I like to include okra in our diet because it helps promote optimal digestion and is packed full of good nutrients. If you have ever cooked okra before it can get a little “slimy” which can be a turn-off for some. But… this “slimy” quality is referred to as a mucilaginous property of okra that helps soothe the intestinal tract AND, along with being a good source of fiber, helps promote elimination and prevention of constipation. Woo hoo for okra! Keep Reading…

Paleo Pan Seared Pork Chop

Quick Pan Seared Pork Chop

September 4th, 2012 | Pork, Recipes

Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes


  • Center cut bone in pork chops(works for boneless as well!)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Grass fed butter

Before we begin, it’s important to know that a properly cooked pork chop should still be slightly pink in the middle! By pan searing it you will get a delicious crust on the outside, and keep it juicy on the inside. I used locally sourced chops that came bone in, which makes for better flavor. Feel free to trim the fat prior to serving, if that’s your thing(I like the fat).
