Raw Broccoli-Slaw Salad

This summer I am challenging myself to experiment with salads. I’m the type of person who is quite happy to have a simple garden salad, no dressing, every day…but I understand not everyone in my family feels the same. So I’m making an effort to make different salads, experiment with flavours, and not stick to my ‘norm’.

It’s also a great way to add more vegetables and fruit to your diet. As well as I eat, I still struggle to eat my daily recommended intake. So here is the first of hopefully a few new salad ideas I’ll share with you.

Paleo Green Chicken Thighs & Sauce

Chicken is the popular white meat in most households. Many of us prepare it the same way day in day out. Today, I wanted something a little different from my chicken. I wanted more flavour. Something that got the taste buds tingly, but not be too spicy for the family. So, I came up with my green chicken and sauce.

Chicken thighs really are a more succulent cut of chicken for this dish. While you could use breast meat if you prefer, it tends to be drier and not as flavoursome. I used to be one of those people who would only eat chicken breast meat. I have been converted though, and really do prefer using thighs more for baking or frying. This recipe would also be perfect to grill on the bbq as well.

Paleo Asian Baked Meatballs

The other day I shared my recipe for my Paleo Sweet Chilli Sauce, a great dipping sauce made with all paleo compliant ingredients. Well, here is the recipe that I served it with when I was asked along to a ‘bring-a-plate’ night with friends.

These paleo asian baked meatballs are quick and easy to make, and use common fresh ingredients in most paleo homes. The flavour is subtle and not over powering, so the kids can enjoy them too.

Paleo Sweet Chilli Sauce

Who else misses their condiments. For many it was the ease of opening a bottle of sauce and adding your favourite flavour to a meal. They have become something of a convenience in modern diets, but the idea of quality condiments is about adding extra flavour to plainer foods. I was never a big fan of sauces. I appreciate the taste of fresh foods and never really needed to add another layer. If I enjoyed them, they were usually the homemade variety. Hubby, on the other hand, really loved his sauces.

His favourite would have been sweet chilli sauce. Obviously, the bottled version is packed with a pile of sugars, preservatives, thickeners, and possibly artificial flavours or colours. When he finally joined me in making the switch to paleo, he did miss the sauces, but we came up with alternatives for most of his favourites. When I mentioned I was going to come up with a sweet chilli sauce with paleo compliant ingredients he was excited to say the least.
