Paleo Chicken Salad

Paleo Chicken Salad I used the Paleo Mayo I made to make this chicken salad.  It is based on this recipe from Paleo Effect: http://www.paleoeffect.com/recipes/paleo-chicken-salad-paleo-effect/ I pretty much followed the recipe, except I used leftover chicken from when we roasted a whole chicken.  Also, I did not have tarragon or parsley, so I used...

Scrambled Eggs + Salsa

This is what I eat most mornings for breakfast.   Mike is usually up before me and leaves me some scrambled eggs in the skillet.   They are often cooked in tallow or some kind of fat (I like making them in coconut oil), and then I add salsa and gobble up. This batch also has...

Paleo Mayo

(forgive my non-pretty presentation) Paleo Mayo I used this Everyday Paleo recipe, but I halved it: http://everydaypaleo.com/2011/06/20/homemade-paleo-mayo-cooking-demo/ This was my second attempt at making my own mayo – the first attempt was a disaster. On the first go round, I tried to follow this recipe from Paleo Diet Lifestyle.  However, I used a handheld...

“BEAT” Salad From Mark’s Daily Apple: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/bacon-egg-avocado-and-tomato-salad/ I made this for lunch one day last week and wowie … It. Was.

Trader Joe’s Spicy Jalapeno Chicken Sausage

Sometimes you just don’t want to plan, prep, cook, and then eat.  Sometimes the modern cavegirl just wants to pull something out the fridge and eat it without having first killed it, gutted it, cooked it and all that.
