Bacon Wrapped Asparagus [Whole30, Paleo]

Looks fancy. Easy to make. Normally when I have steak, I love some sort of white potato as the accompaniment (mashed potato, baked potato, oven roasted potatoes--I don’t discriminate).  It wasn’t until I got older that I realized that I should probably have SOME sort of color or green vegetable on my plate too, which… Continue reading Bacon Wrapped Asparagus [Whole30, Paleo]

Greek Shrimp Salad [Paleo, Whole30]

I am pretty sure the only thing that makes this Greek are the crackers I recommend to top this salad, but I am just going with it.   One of the first meals I ate out after my first Whole30 was at Taziki’s and I got their Greek Salad with grilled shrimp.  However, I removed olives… Continue reading Greek Shrimp Salad [Paleo, Whole30]

Roasted Red Peppers [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Turns out you can make roasted red peppers at home and don’t have to buy them from a jar. I love roasted red peppers on two things: salads and bruschetta.  Ok now that I am thinking about it, I also love them on pizzas and in enchiladas, so maybe I should not pigeonhole myself so… Continue reading Roasted Red Peppers [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Easy Garlic Shrimp [Whole30, Paleo]

Who are you calling a shrimp? When I was growing up, the garlic shrimp we would have came from a frozen package and I am sure had an entire stick of butter in it.  Don’t get me wrong, it was delicious.  However, it was not the cleanest and healthiest option by today’s standards.  So I… Continue reading Easy Garlic Shrimp [Whole30, Paleo]

Death By Chocolate Smoothie [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

I could basically call this a milkshake, but I won’t be dramatic like that. I love chocolate.  Who doesn’t? (Besides those poor unfortunate souls who are allergic to chocolate, God bless.)   So any time I can fit chocolate into my diet, I do.  I also love smoothies, but I am more selective on these. … Continue reading Death By Chocolate Smoothie [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Loaded Chicken Baked Potatoes [Whole30, Paleo]

The motherloaded potato.  When I go to McAlister’s Deli, I always get a Grilled Chicken Spud.  It has grilled chicken, cheese, tomatoes, green onion, and butter.  (Now I always get a chocolate chip cookie too, but that is not part of the journey today.) I wanted to find a way to make this recipe Whole30,… Continue reading Loaded Chicken Baked Potatoes [Whole30, Paleo]

Tuesday Tips: Homemade Balsamic Glaze

I love a good balsamic glaze.  Maybe on some bruschetta, a salad, a flatbread….you get the idea.  For a while, I thought the only way to have a sweet balsamic glaze at home was to buy it from a store and all those store brands seemed to have “caramel color” (like what in the world… Continue reading Tuesday Tips: Homemade Balsamic Glaze

Chicken Club Salad [Paleo; Whole30 Option]

Like a Chicken Club Sandwich, 86 the bread and sub mixed greens. I love this salad so much that I don’t even get club sandwiches out anymore (and that’s not because I never go out any more because you know, COVID). This salad is savory, filling, and Paleo.  Depending on what salad dressing you use,… Continue reading Chicken Club Salad [Paleo; Whole30 Option]

Citrus Grilled Chicken [Whole30, Paleo]

Easy and goes with everything.  (Isn’t that what Rachel said about her cheerleading uniform?) This citrus grilled chicken goes with everything--salads, soups, sandwiches, tacos, enchiladas, plain, ETC.  I think it is important to have an easy chicken recipe that you can eat plain or with just about any flavor, and I think this recipe is… Continue reading Citrus Grilled Chicken [Whole30, Paleo]

Whole30 Hamburgers [Whole30, Paleo]

Sounds basic, but doesn’t taste it. I feel like I have an uphill battle on getting y’all to understand how good these Whole30 hamburgers are.  I know it is so easy to buy premade burgers in the freezer or meat section of the grocery store, or even just grab a pound of ground beef and… Continue reading Whole30 Hamburgers [Whole30, Paleo]
