Links I Love


2015/05/19 by nikkiledford

This one is a recipe edition because I made an epic amount of dishes today and none of them were my own (though I did make some adjustments… see below!) I love getting inspired by what other bloggers are doing and sharing the delicious love.

pork belly


Pomegranate Pork Belly from The Paleo Chef, Mary Shenouda

  • As a side I made a baby kale salad with thinly sliced bell pepper, green onion, parsley, and shredded carrot. Dressing was dijon mustard, honey, olive oil, one lemon juiced,  salt and pepper. This was a great pairing because it complimented the sweetness of the pork marinade but the mustard and lemon cut the fat of the belly.

Sunbutter Bars

Chocolate Pumpkin Sunbutter Treats from Juli Bauer at PaleOMG

  • I subbed tahini for sunbutter, maple syrup instead of honey, and canned sweet potato for pumpkin. No cloves or nutmeg. Just cinnamon and ginger.

zucchini breadPaleo Zucchini Bread from Danielle Walker at Against All Grain

  • sub maple syrup for honey.

Almond Flour Biscuits from The Spunky Coconut guest post on Against All Grain

  • I used regular almond meal and added a 1/4 c. of water to dampen it. I also used Lard like she recommends

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
