Pesto Egg Salad Wraps

I’ve done a post with collard wraps before, but I just wanted to remind you how awesome they are. You can literally wrap ANYTHING; Tuna salad, chicken salad, lunch meat with some tomato and avocado… YUM! This egg salad uses pesto as a binder, but if you’re more of a mayonnaise person, use it! My recipe for Cilantro-Pistachio…

Breakfast Pasta

Breakfast… yum. Pasta… yum. BREAKFAST PASTA? Double yum! I invented this while peeling a sweet potato for my sweet husband’s breakfast. Basically, I just kept peeling. Yup! I’m a genius (and a great wife). That pasta is made with a vegetable peeler. No need to go buy some fancy mandoline contraption or sexy vegetable spiral slicer….

Grilled Salmon over Ginger Kale

Mmmm. Is there anything better than crispy salmon skin?! Nope. The answer is no. Unless it’s fried bacon skin. I’ve been on an animal skin kick lately. Not sure what brought that on, but I will enjoy some grilled fish skin and chicharrones until the hankering departs. Here’s a little meal sure to impress anyone and it…

Lamb Kabob

Lately, I’ve been introducing lamb into my diet. It was not an animal that I’d ever had until the last 5 months. I gotta admit, it’s pretty tasty. It’s also a nice diversion from beef, chicken, fish, bacon… One of my favorites so far is a grilled lamb kabob. I marinate the lamb meat, some vegetables and…

Paleo Hummus

Did anyone even know what hummus was 10 years ago? I feel like hummus was a food trend that never went away. People LOOOOVE hummus. Just go to any Trader Joe’s and you will see about 45 different varieties of hummus. And everyone has their favorite. Roasted red pepper hummus, mediterranean hummus, sundried tomato hummus, spicy hummus, original…

Stir Fry Beef with Tamari Cashews

A little Asian flair for your weekday. Stir Fry is super simple (aside from all the vegetable slicing). Just throw some oil in a pan, get it nice and hot. Add meat, add veggies, and cook till slightly tender (but the veggies should still be a bit crunchy). Bam. Stir Fry. Stir Fry is like,…

Cobb Salad with Dairy-Free Ranch

This is an delicious salad with an even more amazing dressing! I use this as an alternative creamy dressing for cobb salad, coleslaw, caesar salad, etc. It’s also a great dip for kabob meat or fresh veggies. Cobb Salad 1 bunch of organic romaine 1 chicken breast, cooked and diced 4 slices of bacon, cooked…

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…

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…

Kabocha Shepherds Pie

Wedding gifts are amazing. A cast iron dutch oven is a prime example of why wedding gifts are amazing. So, here’s a quick shout out to our friend Colin who purchased said item in honor of our nuptials! Putting it to use was simple enough. I set out to create a delicious Paleo-fied Shepherd’s Pie….
