I was waiting my turn at the deli case the other day and saw an oriental chicken salad that looked really good, but it had those fried crispy noodles. I pulled out my phone and googled a Paleo version of the recipe and thought I’d experiment. I derived it from a few a different Asian Chicken Salad recipes. I think it turned out really good!

I’ve made cashew coffee creamer few times, its super easy and tastes delicious! There are recipes out there with and without sweeteners. I’ve tried it both ways and that sweetener is not really needed, but I’ve included it as an optional ingredient. Continue reading
Egg Muffins are my favorite breakfast food. I began making these a few years ago when I started CrossFitting and eating more on the Paleo side. These can be made with a variety of ingredients, so feel free to be creative.
Ingredients: Yields a dozen muffins
- 2.5 – 3 cups broccoli florets (1/2 to 3/4 inch pieces)
- 1/2 lb or so breakfast sausage or bacon
- 10-12 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- Coconut or olive oil
- Salt and Pepper
- Pre-heat oven @ 350 degrees (I have not had good luck with convection ovens)
- Cook sausage thoroughly into small crumbles in a saute pan
- Saute or blanch broccoli (I usually saute it in the sausage drippings pan)
- Mix eggs and milk in large bowl with a little bit of salt and pepper
- Layer ingredients in lightly grease the muffin pan
- Pour egg over top of layered ingredients, to just below the lip.
- Bake in oven for 25 – 30 minutes
This is my Paleo version, my non-Paleo version includes shredded hash brown potato and shredded cheddar cheese.
Almond muffins are one of my favorite Paleo treats to make ahead of time and keep on hand. They are super easy to make and are absolutely delicious.
- 5 cups almond meal
- 6 eggs
- 1/3 – 1/2 cup honey
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1- 2 tb. vanilla extract
Optional Flavor Ideas
- 1 cup dried cranberries + zest from about 1/2 an orange
- 1/2 -3/4 cup frozen blueberries + zest from 1 lemon
- Be creative and come up with your own 🙂
Measure the almond meal into a bowl and add baking powder, stir. Beat eggs and vanilla extract together. Add to almond meal and stir. Next stir in honey and your flavoring combinations.
Divide into greased muffin tray and cook for 30 -35 minutes at 300 degrees.
Another variation I just thought of is apple, raisin and cinnamon.
I love shepherd’s pie and I love trying new paleo recipes so I had to give this one a try. My changes to the recipe were adding garlic & broccoli to the mixture and salt & pepper to the topping.
