Pork Chops with Apples and Onions

Last night I was about to cook up my beautiful bone-in pork chop from Niman Ranch. I buy my pork from the Meat Mart in Conyers, Georgia. They are an old fashioned meat market, and they do their best to sell happy meat. Then I said to myself, “Wait! you have a boat load of organic apples you just bought from BJ’s.” Continue reading Pork Chops with Apples and Onions

Plastic Seriously?

A couple of weeks ago I went to two important events. The first was a book signing by the Food Babe, Vani Hari, and the second was the GYRE conference at the CDC, which was part of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) conference. I kind of fit into the technology and math category, but science and engineering are beyond my mental skills. Continue reading Plastic Seriously?

Paleo St. Patrick’s Day Dinner

I know St. Patrick’s day was a couple of days ago, but once again I impressed my guests with a traditional St. Patrick’s Day dinner, Paleo style.  Nobody missed the potatoes or the soda bread filled with massive amounts of gluten.

Paleo Birthday Dinner

This past weekend I made a birthday dinner for two very special friends of mine. Neither of them are on the Paleo lifestyle, but I am, and I cooked them a much raved over Paleo dinner.  The dinner was a massive success with everyone very satisfied, and no one feeling bloated at the end of the meal.

Spice-Rubbed Pork Chops with Home-Fried Sweet Potatoes

I am at a loss for words today, so I am sharing a recipe for pork chops that I made last night for dinner. This is simple and delicious.

Always cook with organic ingredients. Here are some that I used in this recipe, along with a deal on cast iron skillets.

 

Italian Sausage and Quinoa One Dish Meal

Quinoa is not really in the Paleo lifestyle, but it’s probably the least offensive of the “grain/seed” that is not in the diet. But I had some organic quinoa and some sweet italian sausage from my favorite meat market (homemade, not processed) that I wanted to use. I found this recipe, and made it last night. It was so good. If you still eat quinoa, and want more recipes, this recipe came from The Quinoa Cookbook: Nutrition Facts, Cooking Tips, and 116 Superfood Recipes for a Healthy Diet.

I made the full recipe, froze half for later and I have lunch and dinner for a couple of days this week. It is really good.

Here are some organic ingredients to use in your version of this dish.


 

Without Fear There Are No Limits

I live without fear. Do you?

I have been on a spiritual quest since my teens. And because of this I have a library of spiritual books. One of the themes, and there is more than one, is that Love and fear are opposites. When you live in Love, there is no fear. Continue reading Without Fear There Are No Limits

Grain Free Stuffed Bell Peppers

I was talking with my good friend, Wriston, last evening, and she asked what I had for dinner. When I told her stuffed peppers and the ingredients, she wanted to know if I had posted the recipe. I had not, so here I am posting it. Most stuffed peppers have rice as a filler. I used cauliflower, which I believe enhances the flavor, and doesn’t make you feel bloated later.

Here are some ingredients I used in the peppers.

Salisbury Steak

Remember this? I was trying to figure out something different to do with my ground bison yesterday, and I came across this Salisbury steak recipe. I literally have not had Salisbury steak since the 60s when it came in this tray,maybe? Well this recipe looked great, so I adapted it to my bison (I rarely eat ground beef anymore, bison just tastes better). It was delicious. I had some zucchini on hand and made these fried zucchini chips.
