While I’ve been away traveling and spreading the word on this whole Paleo thing and my husband hard at work in his office, Uncle Mark has stepped in to contribute some time and keep our family fed with some amazing Paleo recipes. This was a huge hit with the family and just might become a regular staple in our household menu. I mean what kiddo or grown up for that matter doesn’t love a good slider! I have to say I was really impressed with this one; the taste and texture of the sweet potato bun along with the flavors of the lamb and ginger cilantro aoli was delish! I hope you and your family enjoy this as much as we did!
*Note from Sarah: Please welcome Rachel Zanger to the Everyday Paleo Team!! Rachel is a foodie, an amazing cook, and an awesome mom to two little boys. We will have her bio up shortly on our about page so you all can get to know her better but Rachel will be sharing her culinary skills with all of us in order to keep the recipe portion of EP beefed up a bit! (No pun intended….) As I work to finish the Italy Book and then move on to our next location in the series, I need help keeping YOU all fed in the meantime, so Rachel will be helping to keep the creative food juices going on the site. Please welcome Rachel and enjoy her very first blog post and her AMAZING recipe. We just made this last night and it was the BOMB!!! Thank you Rachel and much love to all of you, my dear readers…
One of our favorite summer time activities as a family is to spend the day under a giant oak tree at one of our local parks with a giant paleo picnic. It get’s really darn hot here in Chico but we have tons of trees and shade so often the best reprieve from the Chico heat is to find the coolest spot in the grass with some yummy paleo eats.
Packing a paleo lunch is often a hot topic on my Facebook page and I also receive several questions about what to pack right here on the blog. I have posted several articles before about school lunches which you can read about here but it’s always great to have as many ideas as possible!
Instead of doing a day in the life, I have managed to keep track of some of our random meals over the last few days. You might see a common theme in some of our meals which is due to the abundance of seasonal veggies that I have been receiving each week from my CSA (can you say summer squash??) So let’s get started!
I have had a few requests for a fish recipe so last night I threw this dinner together with what had in the house: some beautiful carrots from the GRUB farm, green onions, fresh ginger, and wild caught Mahi Mahi pieces from Trader Joe’s. I wish now that I had made more of everything, it turned out to be more of a snack for me and the boys instead of an actual dinner but it was delicious!! I’ll advise you now to double this recipe if you have a big family.
I was so lucky to be at Robb Wolf’s Paleo Solution Seminar today, right here in Chico, CA! I met a wonderful group of people and of course the highlight being Robb’s seminar and hearing him make a whole lot of sense about this Paleo “Thang” (as Robb put it…)! After returning home to some hungry kids and a husband who so sweetly arranged a date night for us, I made some Fast Shrimp for the boys. [Read more…]
