Paleo Chicken Tortilla-less Soup

Directions

1. Preheat your oven 375 degrees Fahrenheit (350 for convection). Place your chicken breasts in a large baking pan, and pour one tablespoon of oil over all, coating well. Sprinkle your fajita seasoning over the chicken, coating well, and place in the oven. Cook for about 30-45 minutes (depending on the size of the chicken pieces) until cooked through and liquid from chicken runs clear. Using two forks, shred the chicken (while this is not so easy to do while the chicken is hot, I find I get a better “shred” if I do so while the chicken is still hot). Alternately, you can just chop the chicken into small pieces.

2. Meanwhile, in a large dutch oven over medium heat, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, and when hot, add in the onions. Cook until onions are translucent, about 4-6 minutes.  Finish reading directions & get ingredient list here…

5 Tips & Recipe: How to Make the World’s Best Dark Chocolate Covered Bacon

Chocolate + Bacon = Love. It’s the perfect couple. So sexy. So delicious. What are you waiting for?!

I used a Lindt Chocolate bar with 90% cacao content. Feel free to use whatever you want. Next time I may go with 100% and add a little honey (if you try this please let me know how it turns out!).

The process is fun and can be done quickly too. I’ll run down the ingredients, instructions and some tips so you can create the world’s greatest dark chocolate covered bacon!  Click here for the details.

Paleo 5 Minute Muffins – High Protein, Grain Free, Sugar Free!

I make these all the time, so easy and delicious!

Prep time:  5 mins

Cook time:  8 mins

Total time:  13 mins

Serves: 24 mini muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup any nut butter ( I have used cashew & almond)
  • 2-3 VERY ripe bananas w/ lots of black spots
  • 2 eggs (I have also tried a chia/flax egg, and while very delicious, the texture is more moist and they do not rise as high)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • A tablespoon or two of honey to taste. This amount here greatly depends on personal taste and the sweetness of your bananas.
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor.
  3. Blend until well mixed: batter will be sticky.
  4. Pour batter into a greased mini muffin tins.
  5. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 8 minutes or so, slightly longer with chia eggs. I am sure you could use regular muffins too, but you will have to increase the cooking time to 12-15 minutes.

Recipe: Sweet Potato Bacon Cakes

Got a craving for hash browns to go with your eggs in the morning? Why not make your own, and kick the flavor up a notch with these sweet potato bacon cakes! The potatoes are cooked first to bring out their natural sweetness, and then mixed with just a few ingredients – onions for a slightly crunchy counterpoint, bacon for that irresistible flavor, and an egg to bind everything together. A few minutes to crisp up in the pan, and they’re done!

Ingredients:

1 lb sweet potatoes, quartered;
4 slices of bacon, chopped;
3 green onions, sliced thinly;
1 egg;
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper;
Paleo cooking fat

Preparation:

Place the sweet potatoes in a large saucepan. Add cold water to cover, and bring to a boil; then lower the heat and let simmer until the potatoes are fork tender, about 5 to 8 minutes.
In the mean time, fry the bacon in a skillet placed over medium-high heat until crispy. Set aside.
Smash the potatoes in a large bowl. Shred and add the cooked bacon as well as the onions and egg. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Form four patties using the sweet potato mixture.
In a large skillet placed over a medium-high heat, melt some cooking fat and fry the potato cakes until the outsides are golden and the insides are heated through, about 4 minutes per side. (1)
