Cilantro Pesto Shrimp with Rainbow Noodles

Pasta from carrots?! Right now, Trader Joe’s has Organic Rainbow Carrots, which make for a beautiful Paleo pasta dish! Using a vegetable peeler, make pasta strands with the carrots. Throw the “noodles” into a skillet with a little oil over medium heat and lightly sauté until barely wilted (you don’t want to over cook or…

Caribbean Fish Stew

New and exciting things in my life: This apron from Ikea. 5 dollars. My very first Le Creuset. Ain’t she beautiful! It was a fabulous birthday gift from my in-laws. A new Paleo cookbook, Well Fed and a recommended read, The Happiness Project. I don’t post a whole lot of seafood recipes, but I’ve recently…

Easy Ceviche

Ceviche is a great paleo meal. That’s why I now have 3 versions of it on my blog. (see here and here) Yesterday, my man took me out for a little birthday dinner and we had some ceviche at a Spanish tapas restaurant in Pasadena. The ceviche was so good that I wanted it again….

Curried Tuna in a Jar

Curry is wonderful. It’s so exotic and exciting! It makes any dish instantly more awesome. Like tuna salad. I know what you’re thinking… “but Nikki, tuna salad is already so exciting! How could you possibly make it better than it already is?” Answer: You guessed it, Curry Powder! You’re so smart. You deserve a big…

Tuna and Bacon Collard Wraps

Kale, Collards, Mustard, Dandelion, Chard, and Spinach. Say “hello” to the dark leafy greens family! Greens are amazing. I mean really AMAZING! Calorie for calorie they are one of the most nutrient packed foods on the planet. They contain magnesium which helps with hormone regulation and nutrient partitioning. They also contain phytonutrients (the GREEN color) which helps…

Salmon and Avocado Omelette

We are definitely creatures of habit. No doubt about it. Even as a chef, I find my household grocery list looking pretty repetitive week to week. This doesn’t happen as much with produce because I like to shop seasonally. For example, during the fall/winter months, hard squashes were always in my reusable totes, but since its turing…

Portobello Breakfast Sandwich

See, I told you I like breakfast sandwiches (check my Almond Flour Biscuit post)! This a great alternative to using bread as a vehicle for your food, it’s also another good Paleo breakfast item. I couldn’t resist trying a new version, especially since it’s nut-free. Nuts and I have a complicated relationship. Actually, I make it…

Peruvian Ceviche

I am an enthusiastic fan of ceviche. First off, I love fish. I grew up in Ventura county, going fishing on the weekends with my family. It’s in my blood. Second, ceviche is fresh and light while being packed with flavor! I love it so much that during my honeymoon, I made two different kinds of…
