Easy Lemon Garlic Asparagus
I take a cast iron skillet, add 2 tbsp omghee and 1 tsp minced garlic, heat over medium until ghee is melted. Add one bunch trimmed, thin asparagus, salt & pepper, and halved lemons, turning and continue cooking until tender. When served, use hot lemons and squeeze over asparagus for added hot, zesty flavor. 

Excellent paired with chicken, seafood, steak, soups, etc.

Sweet & Spicy Sausage and Potato Bites (Paleo/grainfree, gluten free, dairy free, Whole 30)

Here’s a fun breakfast alternative.

These are my Sweet & Spicy Sausage and Potato Bites,  the first thing I ever made with potatoes on Whole30 back when potatoes were first allowed in the program last summer. This is from my guest post when I was featured on Whole30 Recipes back in January.

YES! Potatoes are allowed now on Whole30, and Paleo depending on your personal paleo code and activity level. It’s a great eggless breakfast idea, if you are looking for one.

How to make the sausage patties:
INGREDIENTS (Makes approx 12 patties)
1 lb local pastured seasoned pork
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 tsp dried fennel
s&p, to your liking
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper

Mix it all together thoroughly, and form into sausage patties. I cooked slowly over medium heat on a cast iron skillet until nice and brown.

This was a huge treat for my family! They were very thrilled with this and ate it all, and the sweet and salty combination of the spices and salts, with the natural sweetness of the coconut, was divine!

Served in between two fried purple potato slices, with hot sauce and cilantro.

Sweet & Spicy Sausage and Potato Bites Paleo and Whole 30

Breakfast Sausage Patties!

The other day I mentioned a trip to Reedley, Ca to buy local pastured pork. If you are Paleo, or on the Whole30, you know how hard it is to find sausage that is sugar-free. I encourage you to find local farms near you and see if they sell through a CSA or if they sell locally. You’d be surprised what you can find locally.

Here is the sausage I got last week, it has minimal ingredients and it has no sugar, which means it is Whole 30 Compliant! And since I am on Day 12, of my Whole 30, I am excited to have some things I did not get to have last time!

INGREDIENTS

1 lb local pastured seasoned pork (If you are in Central California, try Page River Bottom!)

1 organic, farm fresh egg

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

Mix it all together thoroughly, and form…

Whole 30- Lazy Girl Tuna Boats

Originally posted on The Goodie-Goodie Foodie:

This is so unbelievably easy and I have to say, if you are strategic about having emergency rations in your pantry, fast and freaking easy food is easy to pull off, even on the roughest of days. I always have a ton of eggs on hand, random veggies, homemade mayo, and canned tuna, salmon, etc. Though my family is not a fan of tuna, at least I will eat it, and they got the leftover hardboiled eggs for lunch boxes. I ate ALL the tuna myself.

Whole 30 Recipe- Two-Faced Runny Side Up Omelet

Originally posted on The Goodie-Goodie Foodie:

Eggs, I love ’em. I love ’em a lot. Poached, runny side up, over easy, fried, soft-boiled, hard boiled, blah, blah, blah, I love them. One of the reasons I love them so much is that I think of them as a rescue meal staple. It is so easy to turn a meal around by adding eggs, making it special, and easy if you use eggs. I am often not in the mood to cook at the end of the day, but eggs are fast and simple to pull off and make a lazy dinner seem more eggsellent than if you had run out and gotten take out instead. This is why I like to pack an entire shelf in my fridge full of eggs. Yes, I eat a lot of eggs.

One other thing about eggs that I love is how versatile they are, because I can make some…

Paleo Mayohmygawd (Paleo Mayo)

Originally posted on The Goodie-Goodie Foodie:

This is it. The perfect version of homemade mayo I’ve been searching for. I’ve tried so many different versions and this one tastes best, takes 10 seconds, the ingredients are superb, and it’s fool proof. Also, it’s a great base for more salad dressing recipes (stay tuned!).

If you’ve made mayo before you know about other versions that require you to drizzle slowly, hold your breath, or pray incessantly, to insure even remotely decent mayo. This version is easy. Dump it all in a jar and blend. Sincerely the easiest!

2015/04/img_1279.jpg

Ingredients:

1 room temp egg
1 c organic avocado oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp white balsamic
Pinch salt

Put all ingredients in a wide-mouth Mason jar, insert immersion blender and start blending. Gently bring immersion blender upward to incorporate all the ingredients. Takes about 10 seconds and fifty cents to make a delightful jar of this yummy Mayonaisse.
