One of the benefits of being back in the UK is the ability to pick up cheap tea, pate, and even pancetta in local small grocery stores. Apparently pancetta is an essential ingredient in the UK! But if you can’t find pancetta easily, then just use bacon instead for this recipe. [Read more...]
It’s been really chilly in Scotland over the past few days (supposedly this is pretty typical for Scottish summers!), and so I thought some nice warm soup would be perfect.
Liver is a really nutritious Paleo food, and pate is a great way to get more liver into your diet – it’s flavorful and easy to make. It’s great for spreading onto some Paleo crackers (recipe also in Simone’s book!), or if you’re too lazy to make Paleo crackers (like me), you can just eat it straight! It’s also very filling.
I’m here in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, and salmon is one of the popular local foods here. While I struggled to find smoked salmon in the US, it’s really easy to get it in the throughout UK, and it’s delicious.
If you haven’t ever had smoked salmon before, it’s basically something you eat straight out of the packaging (no need to cook). It tastes like salmon but with a salty, smoky flavor, and its texture is that of raw fish (a bit drier than sashimi-grade). When you buy it, it’s often already sliced into thin slices (thinner than sashimi salmon).
As a child, I was initially terrified of eating smoked salmon (I was terrified of eating anything “raw”), and it took my quite a while before I started to enjoy smoked salmon. Now, I love it!
I love visiting Asian supermarkets, because you get to see so many great fruits, vegetables, meats, and seafoods!
In Vancouver, there’s a ton of Asian supermarkets and a ton of seafood, so sashimi seemed like a great option to pick up at my local H-Mart. Since you don’t have to cook anything, this paleo sashimi salad with kale and mangos is super fast to make. It’s fantastic as an appetizer or a quick lunch.
This is a great tuna salad for when you don’t have any Paleo mayo handy! This Paleo Italian tuna salad recipe uses olive oil instead of mayo to make the tuna moist and tasty.
I was really impressed by the Paleo buffalo wings I ordered as an appetizer at Corner Table in Houston, and so here’s my own Paleo buffalo wings recipe!
I opted for a baked recipe since they’re easier (just place on a baking tray and dump into the oven!).
As soon as Jeremy tasted these Paleo chicken nuggets, he looked up at me with a mouthful and said, “Wow, everyone is going to love this!”
It’s really easy, delicious, and perfect for kids (young or old!).
I made a baked version of this before (recipe here), but I really think my new Paleo chicken nuggets recipe below (shallow fried in ghee) is even better!
Jeremy always talks about his childhood spent eating and drinking non-Paleo classics like chocolate milk, bologna sandwiches, cherry coke, and popcorn shrimp (things I thankfully missed out on growing up in England). But, I thought I’d bring back some of his childhood foods by recreating Paleo versions of them. The Paleo popcorn shrimp recipe turned out amazingly well (in fact, Jeremy thought it was probably better than what he remembered!).
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!
I love making chicken broth in the slow cooker (see my easy slow cooker chicken broth recipe here), and after having some amazing Thai Chicken and Rice with Chicken Soup in Portland, I had to go make a Paleo version to enjoy at home! It’s a simple process – place everything into the slow cooker and leave overnight.
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.
