Go Raw Chocolate

I found a new product to eat in Alaska. I found Go Raw Mint Chocolate.  There are 6 candies wrapped individually in the box.  3 ingredients!  raw organic cacoa, raw organic agave nectar, and organic peppermint oil.

They taste awesome. 
Check them out!

Paleo Minestrone Soup

So I found this recipe and tweaked it to my tastes.  It turned out awesome and it made enough for leftovers which microwaved really well for lunches.

Coconut oil
Diced spicy chicken sausages I bought at Trader Joes.  I have a hard time finding sugar free sausages elsewhere.
Diced carrots
Diced onion
Diced pepper, I chose a red pepper
Diced zucchini
Fresh basil leaves torn into small pieces
8 ounce can tomato sauce
6 cups water
Half a small jar of salsa
Salt and pepper
A little chicken stock

In a large soup pot add the coconut oil and diced sausage, onion, carrot, and pepper.  Saute until veggies start to soften (carrot takes the longest so dice it small) and season with salt and pepper.

Next add 6 cups of water, scraping the bottom of the soup pot, and bring to a boil.

Stir in tomato sauce, a little chicken stock, and some salsa (heat is to your preference level, mine was hot).

Add in the zucchini, basil, and spinach.

When the spinach has wilted it's time to eat!

Lara Bars

Mt favorite flavor of Lara Bar is Pecan Pie, but lately I've been having a hard time finding it.  I'm now digging the Coconut Cream Pie flavor.  It's really good!  I've tried a few new flavors lately like Banana Bread and Lime.  Coconut is where it's at! 

I haven't updated in a long time because we sold our house and have been boxing and moving.
I did make an amazing paleo minestrone soup recipe a few weeks ago that my husband and I loved.
I'll post about that next!

Eggplant Parm with meatsauce

What to do with leftover meatsauce after eating up all the zucchini pasta?  Make eggplant parm. 
It is not pretty looking but it tasted good.

Paleo Cinnamon Rolls

I did not find this recipe to be sweet or doughy enough.  I think with a few tweaks it could make maybe a good scone recipe.

Easter Macaroons

Lots of macaroons seem to appear around Easter, so I made my husband macaroons for dessert on Easter.  These were very simple.  Just look at the short ingredient list!  The recipe came from Elena's Pantry

2 Egg whites
1/4 cup Honey
2 1/2 Coconut Flakes
1/4 teaspoon Salt

Whisk egg whites and honey.
Add salt and stir in coconut flakes.
Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Firmly pack a tablespoon with the macaroon mixture.
Put the mounds on a silpat or parchment paper.  The honey will make these hard to remove otherwise.
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes
Cool and eat!

I would make these again!

Zucchini noodles with meat sauce

We finally have used our mandolin and created some zucchini pasta.  After the zucchini was grated into noodles they were cooked briefly in boiling, salted water for about 3 minutes.  The zucchini pasta was topped with a meat sauce (still using up the cow share meat) and some soy free dairy free Daiya Cheese shreds.  One the side are some of the rosemary biscuits I made topped with coconut butter and some Italian seasonings.  I think this is now one of my favorite paleo meals.
