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.
I first shared my recipe for Chilli Con Carne on Day 7 of my Paleo Challenge I released at the beginning of this year. The recipe become a favourite in my household and especially for my son. Its his no. 1 favourite food, or so he tells me. You can see the original recipe here.
Its a favourite for those busy nights when you don’t have much time, but you want something flavoursome and easy. Chilli Con Carne usually includes beans, but as they are legumes they are not included in a paleo diet, so are left out.
I know what you are all thinking “bolognese, we all know how to make that!” and well you might, but do you know whats in yours? Do you know how much sugar is in it?
If your buying a pre-made jar of sauce or even a tin of tomatoes to add all you are adding is sugar. There might be some thickeners in there as well, but there are scary amounts of sugar in these packaged products. Even in the commonly used Passata there is sadly sugar.
Don’t worry, here is a simple recipe for you and your family to still enjoy this classic.
Its been too long between posts….
The kids have been on school holidays and as it was the first holidays that I didn’t have to work through preparing for a big event, I was determined just to spend time with the them. We haven’t done anything amazing and haven’t filled in every day keeping busy. We have just been together doing ‘stuff’…and its been great!
As a result though, I’ve been only working as much as I absolutely have too. So posting hasn’t happened. The recipes have still been flowing, so there will be more coming very soon.
Today I made up this recipe at my husbands request. We haven’t ever really eaten baked eggs before, but it was always one of those recipes we thought we would enjoy. So…today we did. Enjoy it that is.
A couple of weeks ago we joined friends for a ‘Curry Night’. We had to bring a dish and to help my family stick with our healthy eating choices, I brought cauli-rice (my favourite) and this dish…a Paleo Panang Beef Curry.
A Panang curry is a Thai style curry and generally more milder than other Thai curries. Its perfect for the whole family and for sharing with other families.
