Too Easy Chicken Adobo and Roasted Greens with Beets and Garlic

Adobo Chicken

I have mentioned before that John’s grandpa was from the Philippines and for his family; Filipino food was a staple. I have created a paleo version of one of John’s favorite dishes before, and you can find my Paleo Pancit recipe here.  

Today’s post is about Chicken Adobo. Adobo is an extremely popular Filipino dish and the other night I made a super fast version of this yummy meal using coconut aminos instead of the standard soy sauce and the end result was delicious!

Two Minute Tuna Salad

So maybe it will take you a little bit longer than two minutes; but this salad was crazy fast to make and crazy good to eat!  If you already have eggs hardboiled, and your chopping skills are refined, this might just be the fastest meal you’ve ever made – and tasty too!!

Budget Friendly Balsamic Mustard Chicken and Oven Roasted Veggies

IMG_2733

* Here’s another budget friendly recipe by Erika, our college student contributor to Everyday Paleo!  

Note from Sarah: The cost per person for this meal is based on folks who would have to purchase an entire bottle of olive oil, vinegar, and mustard and also if they purchased the more expensive brands available.  Furthermore, this meal although MADE for 2 people would most likely produce leftovers or feed at least 3. Erika has posted budget friendly recipes in the past and has left OUT the cost of staple ingredients and has been given grief for leaving those items out. Also, these reflect HER costs.  I’m sure that many of you will be able to find better deals.  I also am assuming that she bought an entire package of zucchini from Trader Joe’s and only 3 zucchinis would probably only cost around $1 or $2.  If you have on hand olive oil, vinegar, and mustard and you spend the SAME amount as Erika did on her other items, the actual cost of this meal per person for the Chicken and the Vegetables together would be around $8.50 plus leftovers, or a meal for another person.  Also, think about all the money that Erika is SAVING by walking home on her break and cooking rather then driving to an eating establishment and spending way more than the cost of this meal and not having any leftovers for later and also eating less healthy options. The cost at the bottom of this post reflects the cost of ALL ingredients, including oil, vinegar, and mustard.

Thank you so much Erika for taking time out of your busy college schedule to show us how this can be done!!

Balsamic Mustard Chicken and Oven Roasted Veggies

Here is another quick and easy meal for two on a budget! Talk about simple and yummy I put this meal together in 20 minutes while I was in between my classes. Luckily I live close enough to school that I can walk home during my inconvenient hour long breaks. I used simple ingredients that I always have stocked up in my pantry and put them together with the fresh veggies and meat I had in my refrigerator from my Sunday stock up shopping trip.

I have several holiday recipes on the blog that you can find here, here, and here; but what’s wrong with a couple more!  My family and I will be traveling to visit my wonderful in-laws for Thanksgiving, so I thought I would come up with two fun side dishes that I can make and share while we are there.  Both are scrumptious and I’m looking forward to making both again in just a few days!

First of all, I must extend enormous amounts of gratitude towards Jason, Katie, and Dean who have been submitting excellent articles for Everyday Paleo in order to keep this boat afloat! Also a HUGE thank you to Dain who is back in action and helping to run things.
