good eats

I haven’t had much time for recipe creation during the past few months, so I’ve relied heavily on others’ recipes and a few of my trusted old ones. Thought I’d share a few of my favorites:

  • Paleo Chocolate Cupcakes: I added cocoa to the batter to make it chocolatey as well. This icing is delicious. Not strict paleo because of the icing, but a great alternative to regular cupcakes.
  • Brussels Sprouts & Butternut Squash with Bacon Vinaigrette: loooooooved this recipe. A paleo dream. I didn’t have chesnuts on hand, but it was still amazing.
  • Zucchini Noodles: We typically make spaghetti using spaghetti squash, but zucchini noodles were a nice change. I topped them with sauteed turkey kielbasa and marinara. I actually sauteed my noodles, and I’ve also heard of microwaving them.
  • Brussels Sprouts with Gin, Pancetta, Caraway, and Sherry Vinegar: Obviously, I’ve been on a Brussels Sprouts kick lately. I’ve mixed this recipe up a bit by using bacon and apple cider vinegar–still amazing.
  • Baked Fish with Spinach: April from the gym reminded me of this recipe a couple months. I’ve made it twice during the past month, and it’s still just as good as the first time I made it.
  • Fish Sticks: No big secret here, but I dredge pieces of cod in egg, then a mixture of almond meal, coconut flour, garlic salt and black pepper, and bake in the oven for 25 minutes or so on an oiled cookie sheet.
  • Honey-Pepper Bacon Pops: Made these for a CrossFit baby shower, and yum, who can resist bacon?!?
