Paleo Beef Curry

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post. Did you miss me? 🙂 The reason for my absence, is because I’m working on a new project at home (more of that in future posts). As a result, I’ve simply not had the time, or energy, to photograph and write about all the grub-tastic…

Pistachio-Crusted Salmon

Another great dish for a dinner party. Choose wild salmon fillets from your fishmonger. You can’t beat the taste, and they’ll be much bigger than those you’ll find in the supermarket. The pistachio crust can be prepared the night before. Just cover the dish with clingfilm and pop it in the fridge overnight. NB. Shelled…

Pork Chops with Balsamic Glaze

Another incredibly easy dish which can be prepared the night before. This works well served with lots of vegetables. I chose marsh samphire as I’d bought a huge bag of it from my local grocery store. I also used it in the salmon dish yesterday. Serves 4 Prep: 15 minutes. Cooking: 20 minutes 4 boneless…

Grilled Salmon with Avocado Sauce

Wow! This dish offers incredible depth of flavour. It’s so easy but it’s good enough to impress your dinner party guests and can be prepared in advance too. Serves 4 Prep: 15 minutes (plus fridge time). Cooking: 10 minutes Ingredients 4 large salmon fillets, skinless 1 tsp ground cumin 1 tsp paprika 1 tsp onion…

Paleo – Week 2

I’m enjoying the paleo lifestyle so much that I’ve decided that I’ll probably stick with it – forever! I absolutely love the food choices and can’t believe I’ve not missed eating bread, and more importantly, lentils and chickpeas! I’ve still enjoyed the odd glass of wine or three; old habits die hard! But in the…

Beef Sirloin with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Another paleo favourite! A succulent beef sirloin with spicy tomato sauce that packs a punch! This dish can be prepared the night before, and left in the fridge to marinate. Serves 4. Prep: 20 minutes. Cooking: 15 minutes Ingredients 4 beef sirloin medallions 2 large beef tomatoes 2 tsp chilli powder 2 tsp onion powder…

Orange-Rosemary Seared Salmon

If my taste buds could talk, they’d be screaming “Yay! It’s summer!” I’m not joking! This dish is perfect for this time of year and it’s so quick and easy. It’s packed full of goodness and flavour too. My family tell me it’s like eating in a restaurant, it’s so grub-tastic! They’re biased I know,…

Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

What can I say? Another 10/10 for this grub-tastic! meal from my family. I made this on a Sunday, but it’s a dish that could easily be made during the week, providing you have a slow cooker. Most good supermarkets stock slow cookers, and they’re priced at around £15.00, so it’s a good investment if…

Greek-Style Meatballs

As mentioned in previous posts, the key to grub-tastic food is to use quality ingredients. For meat always choose grass-fed organic if your budget allows. The taste is unbeatable! For these greek-style meatballs, I bought lamb mince from my local butcher, although you could use beef mince if you prefer. Serves 4. Prep time: 15 minutes….

Chorizo & Roasted Potato Salad

My family gave this dish 10/10 so I’m pretty confident you’re going to love it too! The sweet potatoes soak up so much flavour which contrasts beautifully with the peppery rocket leaves. It really is grub-tastic! Serves 4. Prep time: 15 minutes. Cooking: 20 minutes. Ingredients 2 large sweet potatoes (or 4 small) rocket salad…

Balsamic Chicken

If you think you can’t eat healthily because you haven’t got the time to cook from scratch – then think again! This is incredibly easy and provides you with so much nourishment in return. My family absolutely love this dish, so go on, give it a try! Ideally, the chicken thighs need to marinate for…

Roast Leg of Lamb & Vegetables

Leg of lamb is one of my favourite things in the world to eat. It’s so easy and doesn’t take long to cook either. I came across a lovely recipe for roasted leg of lamb on the wonderful Enjoying This Journey, a couple of days ago and decided to do something similar. I happened to…
