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.

The Menu

Steamed Cabbage
Simply steam for 30 minutes, butter and salt and pepper—Don’t mess with it if you want the best cabbage ever.

Root Vegetable Colcannon

This recipe was inspired by Colcannon Recipe—Paleo style from Confessions of an Overworked Mom, thanks Ellen. I would have made this, but there seemed to be a run on parsnips this past weekend.

Here are some organic ingredients you can use in this recipe. For me a double boiler is a must have. It was the first cooking pot I purchased when I first started equipping my kitchen when I was in my early twenties.

 

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.

 

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.

Brussel Sprout Caesar Salad

As promised, here is the Brussel Sprout Caesar Salad. Like I said in my Who Are You post, I don’t particularly like Brussel Sprouts. So, finding a recipe where they taste good is a real find for me. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Here are some organic ingredients you can use in the salad.
