Another Quick & Easy Paleo Dinner (Paleo, Whole30)

Posted on

Here’s another quick and easy paleo dinner! I love things that are quick and easy. When you are only cooking for one person it makes it more worth it when you don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen cooking.

This dinner included chicken thighs, cauliflower, and sweet potatoes. It was delicious. I really, truly, loved this meal. I ate it for like 4 days! HA! I wanted to tell you guys about what made this meal so quick though. Frozen veggies. That’s right, straight out of the freezer. They come from a company called Stahlbush Island Farms. They provide farm fresh, sustainably grown in the USA veggies.

Stahlbush Island Farms is located in Oregon and uses environmentally friendly farming methods for growing high quality fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grains available. They ban GMO’s, protect wildlife habitats, uphold the very highest food safety standards, promote biodiversity, rotate crops for plant health, and grow cover crops to enrich soil. Now here’s the coolest thing, in my opinion, they make their own electricity! They make enough green energy for everything they do. After every harvest they add the remaining fruit, vegetable, legume, and grain material to their Biogas Plant.

When making the frozen veggies I put them into the Pampered Chef Microwave Cooker and cook for the recommended time on the back of the packaging. They always come out perfectly. It really helps when you get home later than expected and they can be put on the table in a hurry. My kind of meal!

What shortcuts do you guys use when making dinner?

Monkey Salad (Paleo, Whole30)

Posted on

I forgot where I originally found this recipe, but it is amazing. It’s such a quick way to make a breakfast a little bit bigger to help make it through the morning. Now I must admit, I go to work at 6am. I am not a morning person, but I get off of work at 2:30pm. It totally makes it worth it! So I have this some mornings when I’m needing a little extra fuel to make it through the morning.

Monkey Salad
1 banana
Cashews
Coconut (I use Dang Brand toasted coconut)

Slice up banana, sprinkle with cashews and coconut. Give it a slight stir and enjoy!

I usually try to eat at least one cashew and a couple flakes of coconut with each slice of banana. That’s just me though. It has a nice little tropical taste. I love it. It would be good if you were having a sweet tooth attack or just needing a little something. This recipe is paleo and Whole30 compliant. Though Whole30 says that you do not need to eat fruit, if you choose to you can eat this!

Do you have any snacks that help you make it through that final push until lunch? What are your go to snacks?
