Mini Chocolate Donuts!!

It’s week 3 of our 30 day Paleo challenge, and I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s definitely got me being a little more creative to find meals, snacks and dessert I can really enjoy. To satiate my sweet tooth, a few days ago I made some chocolate chip cookies and now I have leftover almond meal and dairy free chocolate chips. So I’m adapting a chocolate donut recipe to make it Paleo friendly. I have a mini donut tin on hand, so I’m…

Chicken Lettuce Wraps for a Quick Dinner

I received a head of bib lettuce in my CSA box and I was at a lost for what to do with them. I normally use them as part of a salad or for tacos and wraps. But I needed a quick meal tonight.

Grilled Rockfish with Mango and Cilantro Sauce

One of the challenges I’m finding with trying to be strict Paleo is incorporating a wide variety of meats into my diet. I don’t want to eat a steak every night.

Vietnamese Pork Meatballs with Cucumber Noodles

My husband and I are officially starting Day 1 of our month long Paleo challenge today. We’ve been eating Paleo aware for a while now, meaning, I know what we should be eating and we try to follow the rules a majority of the week, but we’ll cheat every now and then. However, after talking this over, we will be going strict Paleo for 30 days. My first reaction to this was no way! How am I supposed to give up sweets and carbs? But thinking over this the past…
