Sometimes meals are simple with simple ingredients! This is one of those meals. 

The Ingredients:
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
about 2 cups Kale, chopped

The Directions:
Peel and cube sweet potatoes. Place in a glass dish lined with foil.  Melt Coconut Oil and pour over sweet potatoes. Add Salt and Pepper. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes. Take out and set aside. In a frying pan, add 1 TBSP coconut oil and melt. Add Kale and saute. After 5 minutes or once the Kale is wilted add the sweet potatoes.

Paleo Granola MIx

I am a new (once again) mom, as you know! I am a nursing mom who needs calories, proteins and snacks to help keep milk production up! I love trail mix or granola because it is a quick grab! 

Here is a delicious snack or cereal... perfect for on the go!!! I am going to play with it a little more next time I make it. Might add some dates or dried fruits. 

and I will not over cook it!!! Yes, I over cooked this batch because baby needed me! :) It almost was a FLOP! :) 

The Ingredients:Dry
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 1/2 cups almond meal
3 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
4 cups raw slivered almonds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup liquified coconut oil
1/2 cup raw organic honey
3 tsp pure vanilla extract

The Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well to ensure ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. In a medium bowl, add wet ingredients and whisk together until well combined.
  4. Mix the wet ingredients thoroughly into the dry ingredients. 
  5. Divide the mixture in a thin layer onto two rimmed baking sheets. It will fill about 1 and 1/2 jelly roll pans.
  6. Press mixture down with your hands or the back of a large spoon.
  7. Bake until lightly toasted, approximately 1 hour. Remove pans from oven and gently stir the mixture with a large spoon. Carefully return warm pans to the oven and continue to cook for another 15 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and stir in optional ingredients, if desired. Let the mixture cool completely in the pans. 
  9. To store, place a folded paper towel (to absorb any excess coconut oil) in the bottom of a lidded storage container. Add paleo crunch to container and cover. Enjoy plain or with coconut or almond milk.

Ginger Garlic Chicken

I'm back!!! Thank you for the comments and emails congratulating hubby and I on the arrival of the new baby. We are doing great and really starting to get the hang of three little ones! 

I am going to do my very best to post a few recipes a week (if not more) but please don't get mad if I forget! I do have a 17 day old!!! Hubby and I are back to eating Paleo strictly. New baby doesn't like dairy and our 2 year olds belly cant handle dairy. I will write more on that later! 

I made this awesome crockpot chicken last week and must share it. It can be done in the oven but since I had my hands busy I put it in the crockpot around noon and just let it cook for the afternoon! I also thinking a chicken fryer would be awesome but all I had were breasts!

 The Ingredients:
chicken (I used 3 boneless breast)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 TBSP ground ginger (fresh would have been great but didn't have any)
2 TBSP Olive Oil
1/4 cup Coconut Aminos (Braggs Aminos or soy sauce)
Handful of cilantro (chopped)
Garlic Powder

The Directions:
Place chicken in baggie and add all the other ingredients. Mix around and cover chicken. If you are doing a fryer chicken, you will need more of the liquid ingredients. Let the chicken marinate for an hour or more. Add chicken to crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours. If baking chicken cook at 425 degrees and time will vary. Breasts cook for 20-25 minutes or a fryer for 45 minutes-1 hour. I am cooking the chicken in the oven this week and will let you know for sure!

We served our garlic ginger chicken with saute broccoli slaw.
