This week I took the kids down to the local farmers market. We had to get our weekly strawberries and see what other goodies we might be able to pick up. One of the vendors had some nice looking heirloom tomatoes, and while this isn’t the peak season for tomatoes I thought I would buy a few and make something for dinner with them. Upon arriving home I picked some basil from our garden and ended up putting together a delicious and easy Bruschetta – and voila, Bruschetta Chicken with Zucchini “Pasta”!
It’s pretty darn cool to cook right out of my own cookbooks and that’s just what we have been doing this week! I haven’t revisited the recipes in my new book for a few weeks, simply because after you write, photograph, test, and re-test recipes; it’s sometimes necessary – in order to keep ones sanity – to put it all to bed for a while . However, now that the book has been released, it all seems fresh and new again and our family is having a blast making and eating the food from our very own Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook!
Today I’m going to share a recipe from the new book that we made for dinner last night; but first I want to do a quick Release Week Recap, go over some highlights, and thank the awesome bloggers out there who took the time to review my new book!
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!
*Note from Sarah: This post comes from Dana, our EP Team’s Director of Operations (aka Sarah’s Lifesaver). It’s been one year since Dana successfully transitioned her family to paleo and with her experience she offers up some wonderful information and advice. I hope you enjoy!
If you are anything like me, when I first committed to eating and living Paleo, there were still pangs for certain foods to, well, taste like they did before. Pizza Hut pizza is a thing of the past, and now my homemade “paleo” pizza tastes great to me; but it took a while. Same goes for McDonald’s chicken nuggets. Ahhhh… those late nights at the drive-thru, while momentarily comforting, are definitely now a thing of the past! Well I have good news for you; I finally found healthy ground chicken that is worthy of delicious chicken nuggets and are actually made from real food, and the outcome is WAY better than the processed chicken nuggets that we thought used to taste good!

Before you read any further, you must say Herbed Halved Chicken five times as fast as you can. It’s not a just a meal but a tongue twister too!
Last weekend we picked up a halved chicken from the farmers market and John and Jaden made a delicious herb butter rub for the bird. They rubbed both halves with the delicious mixture and cooked the chicken low and slow on the grill until it became tender, savory perfection. [Read more...]
