Paleo Antipasto Platter


2015/08/15 by nikkiledford

Sometimes light snacking your way to satisfaction is way more fun than eating a whole big meal. Other cultures know this. Just look at the tapas of Spain, the meze platter of the Mediterranean, and Antipasti from Italy! Taking a cue from these culinary delights, I decided to compile my own yummy platter of paleo nourishment during our weekend up at the family cabin.


Our cabin is in the mountains of the Sequoia National Forest. It’s pretty fantastic because it has running water, a shower, and a refrigerator but it does not have any electricity or cell service. You get the best of modern advances and none of the distracting, disrupting advances like unnatural light and constant connectivity.

This platter was a great option for a midday meal because you can eat more or less based on your activity level (hiking or laying around all day… ) and there’s something for everyone! (Add cheese if you’re #primal)

    how are salami and prosciutto Paleo, please?

    • nikkiledford says:

      Salting and curing are actually some of the original methods that humans utilized to preserve animal products. Prosciutto is just pork and salt. Look
      For good quality salamis that do not contain nitrates or nitrites. Usually it’s a combination of meat and sometimes a spice like pepper or fennel seeds…

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!
