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…

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…

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…

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…

Plantain and Sausage Hash

The key to getting this recipe perfect is by using quality sausage meat. And by that, I mean a trip to your local butcher’s shop. You can use whatever sausages you like, Italian, pork and black pudding, or as I’ve used here, Moroccan spiced sausages. My local butcher, Axons of Didsbury, have a wall full of…

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…

Paleo Chilli Con Carne

This is comfort food at its best. It’s quick to make, and tastes far superior when you use quality grass-fed meat. The kidney beans are of course, replaced with carrots and mushrooms, but you can include whatever vegetables you prefer. Serves 5 Prep time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 20-30 minutes Ingredients 1 tbsp ghee 500g…

Paleo – Day 2

Had another great nights sleep. Not quite as long as yesterday, but absolutely no headaches, and I slept for over 7 hours which is good for me. I also drank 2½ litres of water. I had brunch around 11am with my daughter who was eager to try the baked avocado. You can find the recipe…

Paleo – Day 1

So here I am; day one and raring to go! I’ve already done my food shop – see here. It’s a good idea to pick a start date and get everything organised, especially if you go out to work. Who wants to be rushing round spending hours preparing everything? Paleo meals are quite straightforward so…
