Its winter and its cold and rainy here today. The perfect weather for comfort food. I’m not talking ‘junk’ comfort food. I’m talking those family meals that leave you feeling warm from the inside out. They make you think of a certain family member, or shared meals that bought you joy. This recipe makes me feel just like that.
One of my favourite meals when I dine out is a well cooked steak. Prior to going paleo, I would always choose that steak with Diane sauce. There was something about the flavour that I made me a big fan. I’m guessing it was the garlic (I love garlic). I’ll reassure you now though that this sauce isn’t overly garlicky, if you’re not a fan of garlic like me. Either way, the traditional sauce isn’t paleo and I soon had to make the choice to leave it out when choosing off a menu.
When I first started following a Paleo lifestyle I didn’t know how good cauliflower rice was and instead set out to find a great naan bread recipe to soak up my curries. I don’t miss bread in my diet. Its things like naan bread that I can do without, but I do miss that something to help soak up saucy curries.
Here’s a great new recipe for the kids, and the kids at heart. Previously, I have shared with you my grain-free chicken nugget recipe. Well, this recipe is a little take on that one, with a bit more flavour. If your looking for something that is going to please a crowd, then here it is.
If you were a fan of that popular fried chicken take away before going paleo, then this recipe is for you. PBC is short for Paleo Baked Chicken, a healthy and delicious fried chicken alternative. I originally came up with this recipe for my kids as a bit of a fun snack, but they have enjoyed it for dinner, for lunch, and also cold in their lunch boxes. Its one of those yummy foods that you might struggle to have just one.
Drumsticks are such an affordable and versatile cut of chicken to work with. They bake, roast, or slow cook beautifully, and are packed with flavour. The meat stays moist when cooked and they also happen to be dirt cheap. I can buy a dozen drumsticks for around $4 – $5 and feed my family of four, plus have leftovers for lunch boxes. You could of course use this recipe on other cuts like the wings or marylands. I know that price can be a factor for many families. Opting for cheaper cuts of quality meat is possibly the best way of saving a buck while still managing to eat paleo.
