Eggs with No Hormone/Antibiotic/Filler Stuff Ham & Horseradish Sauce

July 1, 2013

Hungry again this morning. Made this quick breakfast:

Coconut oil in a pan, put two slices of yummy ham without all the crap in them and cook until both sides brown a little. Simultaneously, place some chopped onions and peppers next to them, stirring them up often to prevent burning. Remove ham, crack two eggs and fry up until they’re the way you like them. Serve peppers over eggs and some horseradish sauce over the ham. Took less than ten minutes to prepare, low in fat ( sorta) and high in protein.

Chicken Sausage Scramble

June 28, 2013

Woke up hungry, which I guess is good considering all that’s going on right now. Here’s what I made:

Heat some olive oil in a skillet add in some cut up chicken sausage and brown it. Toss in some onions, red peppers, yellow peppers and green pepper and salt/pepper to taste, cook until sausage is done and onions are caramelized In a bowl, beat three eggs, add in a tablespoon of melted ghee. Remove sausage/pepper combo to a plate, pour egg mixture into pan and scramble eggs over medium heat until done. Season with salt, pepper and paleo powder, serve over sausage/pepper combo. Enjoy.

Picture would be here if Dropbox photo upload worked all the time. :(. Will edit with pic when able.

Baked Chicken Breast w/ Goat Cheese, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage & @JulianBakery Paleo Powder

March 15, 2013

This is just a variation of my various roast chicken recipes but the addition of the paleo powder over basic salt, pepper, etc was a great idea. Seriously, even if you’re not on anything resembling a paleo diet, get the stuff, its awesome.

 

Line a pan with some halved brussel sprouts and cabbage leaves, coat them with olive oil, salt, pepper and a small amount of Paleo Powder. Put some peppers, red onions and bacon over top the veggies. Split the chicken breasts down the middle (just a little slit) and put some goat cheese in the slit.  Place your chicken breasts on top, pour on some Paleo Powder to taste and top with bacon strips. Cover and bake on 400 for about 40 minutes (use a meat thermometer to be sure) and then enjoy.

Steak, Eggs & @JulianBakery Paleo Powder

March 15, 2013

The other day I woke up HUNGRY. I had worked out twice the day before, ran around all that day and was pretty tired otherwise. I figured this would be a great wake-me-up plus you know, I really like steak and eggs and the addition of Julian Bakery’s Paleo Powder simply made it all the better. Here’s the recipe, enjoy:

 

Steak

Coat with a little olive oil (I use the not Butter Butter flavor from The Olive Scene) then season well with the Paleo Power. Broil on one side for 7 minutes and then flip to the other side for 6 minutes. This came out about medium for me but my oven is very odd and probably needs replacing or repairing. Anyway, it was simple and delicious, perfect breakfast steak.

 

Eggs

Beat two eggs together, pour them into a skillet and, well, scramble them up. Put some Paleo Powder on them for an extra kick and when they’re nearly done, I added some goat cheese. These were pretty fantastic eggs and I’ve made them a few times since, great every time.

Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Broccoli & Brussel Sprouts

March 4, 2013

Back to an old favorite roasted pork tenderloin.

Line the pan with broccoli and halved brussel sprouts (if they’re bigger ones) and pour some chicken broth over the veggies. Coat veggies in olive oil and then put the tenderloin over the veggies, pour a bit more olive oil on the meat and season with garlic, thyme, basil, salt and pepper.  Roast on 400 for about 45 minutes. It comes out juicy, tender and will be excellent tomorrow in my roasted pork and goat cheese omelet. 🙂

Roasted Chicken, Peppers & Goat Cheese Dinner Omelet (Bacon Optional)

March 1, 2013

Nothing about this recipe makes it “dinner” other than the fact that I had it for dinner tonight. It was made out of my roasted chicken recipe from the other night.  First take pull leftover chicken breast off the birdie and put it aside. Put some yellow, red and green peppers in some olive oil (garlic from The Olive Scene for me) and cook them until soft, adding in the chicken to warm it up midway through. Once that is done, put it to the side and then beat three eggs together, pour them into your favorite omelet pan, cook until eggs set. Once the eggs are set, put the pepper/chicken mix over the eggs and then add your goat cheese, fold, remove from pan and enjoy. Easy dinner.

Pork Roast With Peppers & Onions

February 6, 2013

This was pretty good I have to say. Take a pork roast (3/4 lbs) and coat in garlic infused olive oil (because why not?), put in a roasting pan lined with “heavy vegetables” I used broccoli and cauliflower and covered (the veggies anyway) with chicken broth. Season with salt, pepper, garlic and thyme cover with red, onion, green peppers and red onions. Bake on 425 for about 15 minutes and then about 50 minutes (until temperature is reached) on 350. Let it rest for about 10 minutes, slice and serve. Enjoy!

Chicken Parts & Kales (What Could Be Better)

February 6, 2013

I like chicken and I like kale…so I decided to try them together and it was pretty good. Take some chicken parts (I used legs and thighs) and lay them around a roasting pan lined with the kales and pour some chicken broth (organic, veggie fed, etc) over the whole thing. Season with thyme, salt, pepper, garlic and some olive oil (I used my Olive Scene “butter” and garlic infused oils) for extra flavor. I baked it on 425 for about 45 minutes but obviously don’t overcook it (or undercook it for that matter). It was quite good and pretty simple. Enjoy!

Wife Wanted Chicken Again…Weird (or Roast Chicken with Brussel Sprouts and Bacon)

January 22, 2013

So my wife loved the chicken I made last week except instead of cabbage I made it with brussel sprouts, bacon and onions tonight.  She’s sick so I made sure to include some broccoli too. 🙂  It was pretty good I have to say. so same recipe with the above changes and all you go. I’m also now all out of The Olive Scene Olive Oil and we’re in the middle of another snowstorm, oh well, its totally worth it. Pic below, enjoy.

Roasted Turkey Tenderloins w/ Brussel Sprouts AND Bacon!

January 16, 2013

Okay got a little crazy today. This recipe was inspired by my love of turkey, brussel sprouts and, well yeah, bacon. Away we go:

 

Take a turkey tenderloin (usually split into two already and usually about one and a half pounds and split the two pieces  down the middle and put them to the side. Cut some brussel sprouts in half and layer them in the bottom of a roasting pan then pour about a 1/4 cup of chicken stock over them, salt and pepper them then put the turkey tenderloins over them. Spritz everything with (I use The Olive Scene) Butter (not really butter) olive oil, garlic infused olive oil and salt/pepper. I then stuffed with them some gorgonzola  cheese (yeah I’m not perfectly paleo yet, I still have the occasional cheese so sue me :-)), toss some bacon over the brussel sprouts and turkey, cover and bake on 400 for about 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for about another 10/15 minutes, let it all rest for about 10 minutes, serve and enjoy.
