Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs by The Paleo Kitchen

Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs from The Paleo Kitchen

I’ve been a fan of George’s (Civilized Caveman Cooking) and Juli’s (PaleOMG) sites for a long time, and so I was really excited when they decided to work together on a cookbook, The Paleo Kitchen.

They posted one of their delicious recipes (Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread) from The Paleo Kitchen here a few months ago, and I know a lot of people emailed me because they loved the recipe. So, I went and tested one of their recipes for dinner last night. It was one of the really easy ones (because I’m currently limited to the stuff they sell in a Tesco Express – a tiny supermarket in Edinburgh).

Ginger Apple Celtuce Paleo Stir Fry Recipe

Ginger Apple Celtuce Paleo Stir Fry Recipe

I’ve been living for the past month mostly on this tropical island off the southern coast of China called Hainan. I know I’m super lucky!

It’s been a bit tougher doing Paleo out here because all the ingredients are different, and I don’t have hardly any cooking supplies! I just have 2 electric cookers (one is on the ground!) and a microwave.

Since I’m unable to cook many of my usual recipes, I’ve been experimenting some with the local produce and creating some new ones. This Ginger Apple Celtuce Paleo Stir Fry recipe is one of my favorite creations. It’s also paleo autoimmune friendly (omit the chili from the recipe – that was how I made this dish initially actually). If you don’t know what Celtuce is (also known as asparagus lettuce), then check out my post about it here (you can find it in many Chinese supermarkets around the world).

What Are Custard Apples (aka the Buddha’s Head Fruit) and How Do You Eat Them?

what are custard apples and how do you eat them?

I’ve been living in Asia for the past month, and I’m absolutely loving the huge variety of fruits and vegetables here. I keep discovering new ones every day. So, I thought I would start featuring a few of the ones that I’ve discovered.

I’m starting with Custard Apples (aka the Buddha’s Head Fruit) because they have such a weird name!

Despite their weird name, they’re actually pretty common in many warmish climates (although this trip was the first time I had come across them). According to the all-knowing internet, you can find custard apples in countries like Spain, Peru, Taiwan, Australia, China, and many more.

Make Your Own Bacon Cups

I had been wanting to make some bacon cups ever since one of my readers sent me a link to a company that sold some form of device for making bacon cups!

It’s a handy cup for filling up with simple salads, and it’s not only “cute” but also delicious!

Braised Cardamom Cabbage and Pork

Paleo braised cardamom Cabbage and pork

I’ve found that cabbage and pork go really well together, and this dish combines those flavors along with the slightly tangy flavors of cardamom and apple. It’s a fantastic one pot meal (in fact, I often make double the recipe at the same time with 2 large saucepans)!

Paleo Spaghetti Squash Soup with Apples

paleo spaghetti squash soup recipe

Spaghetti squash is popular in Paleo as a grain-free alternative to pasta. The squash naturally forms strands that look like spaghetti.

However, I wanted to do something different with my spaghetti squash, and so I decided to make a nice warming soup with apples and fall spices.
