Current category: 'Recipes.'

You can call it paleo, but around our house, we call it dino-chow.

I don't (generally) consume grains, sugar, dairy, legumes, caffeine, or alcohol, so almost all of my dino-chow recipes are squeaky clean and paleo/Whole30/primal-approved. My standards are high, and I only post recipes that I've personally tested. My goal is to give you tasty food you can eat EVERY DAY, so you won't find a lot of recipes for "paleo treats." But meat, veg, and yummy, yummy (YUMMY!) fats? I've got you covered. Dig in!

Tuesday 10: Paleo Pumpkin Recipes

I tried to deny it, but I can’t resist. The internet has given me Pumpkin Fever. Everywhere I click, there are orange-colored treats beckoning me to indulge in the warm spiciness. I don’t even drink coffee, but I’m convinced my day would be perfect if I could just sip a pumpkin spice latte. I’m distracted by the idea of adding pumpkin to everything. (No! Not pumpkin. If I’m... read more

Coconut 101

I was working on updating a classic American recipe for my Paleo Magazine column this weekend and realized I had no idea how to properly prepare a fresh coconut. After a little research and some tinkering in my test kitchen, this what I came up with. If you’ve never eaten fresh coconut, you really owe it to yourself to give a go! Preheat oven to 400F. Place the coconut on a kitchen towel for... read more

Spicy Pumpkin-Spiced Pepitas

When I was in Miami in May for the BlogHer Food Conference, I ate seriously ginormous chopped salads for lunch every day, topped with golden raisins and roasted pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds). This week, I caught “MAKE EVERYTHING WITH PUMPKIN SPICE”-Fever. So I roasted pepitas with ghee and a pumpkin spice blend, amped up with a smidge of cayenne. I’ve been sprinkling them on my food... read more

Paleo Caesar Salad

In each issue of Paleo Magazine, I share the history of a traditional recipe and adapt it to fit into a healthier paleo lifestyle. For the July issue, I explored the disputed but entertaining story of this classic bowl of greens. To understand the story of the Caesar Salad, travel back in time to Prohibition-era California — warm sun and empty cocktail glasses. Then imagine the rollicking good time to... read more

Perfectly Peelable Hard-Boiled Eggs

I’m on a hard-boiled egg kick. One of my favorite snacks is an hb-egg with a dollop of homemade mayo and a light sprinkling of truffle salt. Divine. I’ve also been perfecting my recipe for fuschia-colored pickled eggs. I keep telling Dave I’m becoming a homesteader now that we live in Vermont. He just rolls his eyes. But here’s the thing about hb-eggs. They can be a royal pain in... read more

Spring Chopped Salad

I know it’s summer, but all of the ingredients needed to make the Spring Chopped Salad from Well Fed 2 were in abundance last week when we visited Sunrise Farm for our CSA pickup. So I thought I’d share this recipe, just in case you’re also up to your ears in cucumbers and snap peas where you live. This salad is SO green, and also light, lemony, and thoroughly satisfying. Plus, it’s... read more

Sunrise Spice

In my Austin kitchen, I had my spices in two cabinets above my stove; I wrote about it in great detail. In my new kitchen, my spices now live in a wide, deep drawer. I slapped labels on the lids and arranged them in very, very rough alphabetical clusters. I’m slowly learning where things are so I can put my hands on them without thinking about it too much. Note that salt and garlic powder, which I... read more

Taylor Nichols: Paleo ChikFilA Nuggets

Since I’m still unpacking moving boxes,Taylor Nichols, the blogger behind Tayste of Paleo, is going to tell you a little bit about the mysteries of chicken labeling and why it’s important to know your local farmers. Then as a treat for doing your homework, you can take a bite of her recipe for Paleo ChikFilA Nuggets.  Take it away, Taylor… I grew up on a dairy farm in Southern Colorado... read more

Classic (Paleo) Potato Salad

Now that white potatoes have been deemed Whole30 compliant [insert cartwheels of joy here], I thought I’d celebrate by sharing some of the reasons to love white potatoes. Here’s my list. 1. They contain a potentially blood pressure-lowering compound called kukoamines. 2. They’re rich in B6 vitamins which are great for nervous system and cardiovascular health. 3. They’re a good... read more

Classic (Paleo) Diner-Style Home Fries

White potatoes are now Whole30 approved. A cuppa joe. A wise-ass waitress. And a plate piled with over-medium eggs, crispy bacon, and a mound of crispy brown home fries — this is my ideal weekend breakfast at a diner. Sure, we paleo people have been able to enjoy a classic diner breakfast of bacon and eggs all along, but I have to tell you, the announcement that white potatoes are now Whole30 compliant... read more

Chimichurri, aka Magic Sauce

In case you’ve been unlucky in life so far and are unfamiliar with the intoxicating flavor of chimichurri sauce, let me tell you about it. It originated in Argentina, and I’ll admit, it sounds pretty simple: minced parsley, oregano, and garlic are blended with red wine vinegar, olive oil, and a pinch of red pepper. But some kind of alchemy happens when those simple ingredients are mixed... read more
