Turnip Home Fries

I sure do love potatoes.

In fact, my personal measure of a good breakfast place is whether or not they can execute morning potatoes correctly. It doesn’t matter if they’re shredded Hash Browns, small-diced Home Fries, or big wedges of roasted Breakfast Potatoes; the big question on my mind (and tongue) is are they adequately cooked, seasoned, and BROWNED.

Chances are, if you are a strict paleo, this question is probably far from your mind because you have eliminated white potatoes from your diet. So this particular recipe is for you and anyone else who likes to experiment with root veggies or steer away from starchy carbs.

Turnip Home Fries

3 large turnips, peeled and diced into small cubes (think small sugar cubes)
2 tbsp. avocado oil or melted butter
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. In a bowl, toss turnips with seasoning and oil.
  3. Spread out evenly on a lined cookie sheet.
  4. Bake until bottoms begin to brown (about 20 mins) and toss a bit to turn them over.
  5. Bake an additional 15 mins or so until desired “brown-ness” is achieved (I like my stuff really crispy but some people prefer them lightly browned).

Peace, Love, and Kale... and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me and sweet baby Atlas. I got out of the house this morning and went straight to yoga and then to get my fav smoothie from @projectjuice Let the birthday festivities begin! My little man turns ONE on Monday and we are celebrating with a blueberry picnic tomorrow. Complete with Mango Blueberry Salsa and blue corn chips. The first of many yummy Blueberry-themed noms. 
#blueberryparty #atlasjacobledford #yearoneofatlas MOTHERHOOD// I'm a little embarrassed at the lack of impressive food posts lately.
As Atlas has begun to eat more food, I find myself just munching on things while I prepare his meals, never really sitting down to my own. Breakfast is some eggs and berries. Lunch, some deli meat and @primalkitchenfoods mayo with a banana and almond butter. Dinner usually includes a quickly grilled piece of meat atop some lettuce greens and any chopped veggies and quick dressing. It's not glamorous at all, definitely not "Instagram worthy".
It's just real life right now and I'm hoping to get into a groove pretty soon and get back to  creating mealtimes instead of surviving them. I mean "surviving" in the best possible way. My kid loves to eat real healthy foods and it's so fun to explore this new part of his day. My creativity is taking a big hit though and I long for some real thoughtful meals at my dinner table with my main man.
Until then sausage/salsa/lettuce wraps will do.
