What I Ate Today

It’s been quite a while since I last wrote. Life has definitely been on the crazy side. We are in the process of buying a house (hoping to close in three weeks!). And just moved from our temporary furnished rental into our friend’s house for the next couple weeks (thank you guys!). And I also started my new job as …

Dad’s Famous Brisket

This brisket is seriously amazing. I used my Dad’s famous brisket recipe that uses store-bought ketchup, BBQ sauce and Worcestershire sauce and altered it to use homemade versions of those ingredients. I searched for Paleo-friendly recipes and have included the links below. You could use any homemade version you like or any Paleo-friendly store-bought version. The brisket cooks low and slow …

Sweet Potato & Pork Hash

The 21 Day Sugar Detox is officially over! I feel like I’ve been cheating all week as I’ve been incorporating those “no” foods back into my diet. I probably indulged a little too much last week (ice cream, fries, dark chocolate, fruit, wine, beer, sweet potatoes). Those things are definitely not bad in moderation but I probably need to be …

Cinnamon Roasted Butternut Squash

Only four more days left to go on the 21 Day Sugar Detox!!!! I think that sentence deserves about 100 exclamation points. I feel like the last few weeks have gone pretty fast but I am still ready to be done. I’m already planning what I want to eat on day 22…sweet potatoes, dark chocolate, blueberries and a glass of …

Sweet BBQ Chicken & Mango Salad

These last few weeks have been absolutely crazy. Work has been super busy from finishing up projects to training someone to take over my role. Looking for houses has been exhausting. We put in an offer and had it accepted by a home we really love, however there are potentially some serious foundation issues, which we are still finalizing. We’ve …

Blackberry Swirl Coconut Milk Ice Cream

This may be the first real dessert I have posted on Sweet Paleo! Once I mastered how to make coconut milk ice cream I have been trying to come up with different flavors then just plain vanilla. I bought some fresh blackberries at the Farmer’s Market downtown last week and they seemed to be going bad pretty quickly in my …

Paleo Chicken Enchiladas!!!

I am so excited about this recipe that it totally deserves three exclamation points in the title. I have been looking for a great Paleo tortilla recipe for quite a while. There are a lot floating out there on the internet but nothing every really seemed like something I wanted to make until now. I discovered sweet potato flour tortillas! …

Roasted Chicken Sausages, Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts

We no longer have a grill since moving to Austin and haven’t found one that we like just yet. My normal go-to meal during the week is some kind of grilled meat (chicken, fish, steaks, burgers, etc.) with veggies, so lately I’ve had to be a little more creative. We’ve been going to the farmer’s markets in the area every …

Banana Berry Smoothie

I promised a recipe last week and I had all intentions to post one. However, we visited The Woodlands, TX and I completely forgot my camera at home that had all my photos…so here it is, a little delayed. Since moving to Texas I have been obsessed with fruit smoothies. Probably has to do with the fact that it is …
