Mostly Paleo Austin Recap Part 2

I promised I would finish my recap of our recent adventure to Austin, so here it is. A little delayed, but still here! One night while we were there I wanted to tried a fancier place. We chose (or should I say that I chose…) to go to the Salty Sow. It was a really unique, modern place that had …

Mostly Paleo Austin Recap Part 1

Joe and I just got back from Austin, Texas and had a blast! It was filled with lots of good food, great weather, exploring downtown, hiking, paddle boarding, shopping and catching up with a friend. I promised to provide some food highlights from the trip, so let’s just get to it…  The first place I wanted to try was Wholly …

My Favorite Roasted Rosemary Sweet Potatoes

I am officially obsessed with sweet potatoes (hence the name of the website). 🙂 If I could eat them for every meal, I probably would. Actually, I definitely would. I try to limit them to a few times a week (which is really limiting them for me). My favorite way to eat them is by roasting them in the oven …

Ham, Mushroom and Spinach Omelet

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Joe and I stayed at Hotel Deco in downtown Omaha to enjoy a nice relaxing evening away from home. We had reservations at the Zin Room and I could not wait for our little in-town weekend getaway. Unfortunately we were both underwhelmed with the whole experience. Food was pricey, service was slow, didn’t get a good …

Crockpot Italian Shredded Pork

I am absolutely in love with the crockpot. Having dinner waiting for me when I get home after a long day couldn’t get any better. And this recipe is delicious! Reminds me a lot of Italian Sausage and Peppers. For Christmas, Joe got me a Groupon to Omaha Power Yoga. I’ve done yoga off and on in the past, but …

Paleo Beer Dinner (Well…the food is Paleo!)

A few weeks ago we celebrated Joe’s birthday. Last year we were living in Texas and went to a 5-course beer dinner at a local brewery to celebrate. It was delicious but definitely not Paleo. This year instead of going out to dinner, I decided to surprise Joe and create a Paleo-inspired 4-course beer dinner at home. I know beer …

One of the things we want to accomplish with sweet-paleo.com is to show our readers some unique but useful cooking products.   So with our very first product listing, I wanted to introduce the Avo Saver.  Their are a number of Paleo recipes that use avocados and more often than not, you won’t be using the entire avocado.  So rather than tossing it into …

Pork, Orange and Spinach Salad

A few weeks ago Joe, and I sold our house in The Woodlands, TX. We moved back to Omaha, NE from Texas in July and had our house on the market for about 7 months. It was a long roller coaster ride, but the house is now sold. Luckily we have an awesome family who is currently housing us until …

Coq au Riesling (Rosemary Chicken and Veggies in a White Wine Sauce)

I adapted this recipe from one I found in Good Housekeeping. It’s a yummy twist on Coq au Vin that incorporates dry Riesling with chicken, bacon, rosemary and vegetables slowly cooked in a Dutch oven over the stove. This is definitely a weekend meal because there is a little bit of prep time and the chicken ended up taking longer to …

Quick Visual Guide to Eating Paleo

While playing around on Pinterest the other day (you can follow Sweet-Paleo on Pinterest here by the way), I stumbled across this cool infograph that is a quick guide to what the Paleo diet entails. Great for those who are visual people (like my husband!). It’s a good starting point for those who are on the Paleo fence or are brand …
