Oh She Glows Crowd Pleasing Tex Mex Casserole

By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

This casserole is SO good, SO quick and really budget friendly! I have been whipping this up the last couple of weeks for a quick meal that can be ready at a moments notice (very key with two babies around).  This one is definitely a crowd pleaser, I recommend giving it a try this week for quick, grab and go lunches! P.S. Excuse the food photography – My excuse =…

Quick and Easy Cauliflower Rice

By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

So often we prepare particular foods simply because it’s a habit or we feel as though we would be missing something if they weren’t on our plate (think starchy carbohydrates: pasta, rice, bread, potatoes, etc.) They can be filler foods that aren’t overly nutrient dense but we eat them regularly anyway because they are easy to prepare and require minimal thought. What if I told you that you could swap out rice occasionally…

No Potato Soup

Dairy-Free No Potato Bacon Soup

By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

I have many clients who are sensitive to nightshade vegetables. Nightshades, for those of you who don’t know, include potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant and peppers and all of the spices that are derived from these foods. This recipe has been adapted from the Merit and Fork website (I am a lazy cook, so I’ve shortened a few steps and omitted some ingredients).  Bacon gives a wonderful flavour to everything (just make…

Slow Cooker Ribs

Best Slow Cooker Ribs from PaleoLeap

By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

These ribs have got to be the BEST ribs I’ve ever made – they fall off the bone and are absolutely delicious! One of the greatest things about this recipe is that it contains NO store bought BBQ sauce or ketchup (which we all know – many brands contain a lot of added sugar or even worse – high fructose corn syrup). Throw these in your slow cooker this weekend –…

Thai Quinoa Salad

Thai Quinoa Salad

By | Entree, Recipes | One Comment

This recipe is a potluck go to. The recipe is easy and it makes a large batch so it’s great for feeding a crowd. I used peanut butter in this recipe but you can use almond butter or sunflower seed butter for a slightly different taste. The only recommendation I make: please don’t substitute the red pepper with green pepper – the red pepper gives the salad a sweetness that…

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

One of my favourite cookbooks has got to be Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook. Her recipes are absolutely delicious and do not contain obscure ingredients that are difficult to find. I’ve made a couple of tweaks to this recipes (we aren’t a huge fan of overly spicy dishes) but otherwise I made the recipe as is. Throw all of these ingredients into your slow cooker overnight and the next morning you…

Paleo Shepherd's Pie

Paleo Shepherd’s Pie

By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

Nothing says comfort food quite like a shepherd’s pie. This recipe was a huge hit in our house and it was so simple to make. I suggest preparing this on the weekend to have lunches ready for the whole week. This shepherd’s pie freezes great – so double batch it and you can relax next weekend.

Chicken Pork Apple Burger

Apple Basil Burgers

By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

These burgers are great for any meal of the day – pair them with eggs and fresh fruit for breakfast or serve as a traditional burger for lunch or supper. These burgers have lots of flavour and are so simple to prepare. The first batch I made with just ground chicken and there didn’t seem to be enough fat so they turned out quite dry. Next time I did half ground…

Bacon and Potato Salad

By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

Isn’t it true that bacon makes everything better? I bet I know what you’re thinking, “isn’t this girl a dietitian. Why is she suggesting bacon and potatoes – won’t this make us fat?”. If you didn’t get a chance to see my latest post on resistant starch, you can read it here. With regards to bacon – it’s a great fat to include in our diet – it’s just all about the quality…

Chicken Masala

Slow Cooker Chicken Masala

By | Entree, Recipes | One Comment

A busy schedule has made my slow cooker my most used kitchen tool. I love this dish because I can chop up all of the ingredients, throw them into one pot and in 8 hours have a delicious meal ready to eat when I get home from work. What else I love about this recipe is that although it calls for a lot of spices, almost all of them are in…

Balsamic Maple Pulled Pork

This delicious pork dish can be thrown into the slow cooker in the evening and ready to be packed in your lunch the next morning. The sweetness from the peppers and maple syrup create the perfect mixture of flavours. Throw these ingredients in the crock pot and don’t worry about dirtying too many dishes or waiting hours for it to be ready. Put everything together Sunday evening and have lunches prepared…
