Sauceless curried chicken and veg

Usually if I make chicken curry, I make it in the morning and toss everything in the crock but not all mornings go as planned. So tonight I made a very quick and easy substitute. This is a perfect weeknight meal bc it takes about 20 minutes.

1 lb of chicken
1 squash
1 zucchini
1/2 one red onion
Curry
Cinnamon
Salt
Coconut oil

In a large saucepan heat coconut oil over medium heat, add the chicken and cook until the outer edges turn white, then add the veg and season liberally. Cook until veg is fork tender. Very simple, no heavy sauce but still hearty enough to fill up a hungry hubby.

Paleo meatloaf

I have to apologize for the lack of pictures but it was just too tasty we gobbled it down before I thought to take pictures. I’ll share my recipe, but I need advice, without bread crumbs, there is nothing to absorb the juices, how do get this to “loaf”? Don’t get me wrong it tasted amazing. But it wasn’t something we could slice, it was more like a delicious meat pile. At any rate no ego here please share your tips for me I you have a secret to Paleo meatloaf this girl wants to know!

*Preheat oven to 450

In a large bowl mix
1 lb grass fed beef
1 diced green pepper
1 diced red onion
1 handful of diced baby Bella mushrooms
1 cup of cauliflower (I put mine in a food processor until it is the texture of rice)
2 raw eggs (for binding purposes)
1 large can of gluten free marinara sauce *reserve a little to top the loaf with

Mix all together and then form into a loaf pan and then pop in the oven for 45 minutes. After 45 I top it with the last of the marinara and let it go 15 more.
-I’ve also used pepper jelly, or pineapple preserves to top it with. Sweet goes great with the savory. Think outside the box. (Which means step away from the ketchup bottle)

Please leave a comment of you have tips to improve my recipe 🙂

Paleo Apple crisp

Tonight I wanted some fall comfort food. I scoured the kitchen.

Here’s what I came up with:
Apple
Honey
Walnuts
Cinnamon
Nutmeg
Butter
(Coconut oil would be fine)

I peeled and chopped the apple, and added a sprinkle of spices. About a tablespoon I butter, and handful of walnuts and drizzled honey over the top. Put it in a microwave safe bowl covered and microwaved it for 2 minutes. My kitchen smelled amazing when I opened the microwave. But this lasted about 30 seconds while I impatiently waited for it to cool off then devoured it. As I write this post I’m thinking about making a second bowl.

*Important to note that this is just enough for one person. A perfect treat that just took less then 5 minutes to make. Eating paleo doesn’t have to mean you live in a world with no treats.

Enjoy!
