Paleo Breakfast: Beyond Bacon

January 20, 2014

I am going to commit sacrilege here, on so many levels, if you’re a hardcore paleo person, stop reading now. If you’re my sister, stop reading now, you will be grossed out. I like bacon, I am overall a fan but I don’t love it, not like most people and going paleo-ish is tough on breakfast. Pancakes are gone, waffles are gone, etc, especially if you’re also going low-carb with it so what’s an only average bacon liker to do? Be creative! This morning as I was making my usual spinach, onion and pepper omelette and getting ready to bake my bacon when I thought, “what am I doing!?!?!? I don’t want bacon again?!”

Here’s a recipe for a quick seafood omelette that, for some reason, has escaped me for a quite a while, basically it is my regular spinach, pepper and onion omelette with some canned salmon tossed in, you could use tuna (I wouldn’t) or crab (I might) or some other mild fish, it was quite amazing. One note about seafood, there is a problem (not getting preachy), you really only want to buy  from sustainable sources, if you don’t agree you’re probably dumb and if you don’t why you should agree check out, http://www.seafoodwatch.org/cr/seafoodwatch.aspx and they’ll explain it better than I ever could. Anyway, on with the recipe:

1/8 cup onions (I usually mix red and yellow)

1/4 cup red/yellow/green pepper mix

1/4 cup of raw spinach

Pinch of garlic salt (to taste)

Ground black pepper (to taste)

1 can of salmon, deboned, in water, sustainable source, etc

2 eggs

 

Saute onions and pepper together and once they’re start to get soft, add in the salmon and season well, once the salmon is warm add in the spinach and sauté until done, remove from heat to a plate. Whisk together the two (cracked) eggs and then pour them into the pan (you can add olive oil if you want), cook as you would a regular omelette and when its near done, add the filling from the plate and flip one side over. Then serve and enjoy!

Paleo Pizza — Not The Real Thing But Pretty Okay

January 12, 2013

I am a pizza fan, always have been probably always will be. Problem is, “real” pizza is bad for me and my body just doesn’t handle it well so I decided to try out some making some paleo pizza. Unlike the paleo bread post this was actually edible. My only complaint (and its probably my fault) is that the crust wasn’t quite crispy enough. Anyway, I followed this recipe with only a few modifications, I used the garlic olive oil from The Olive Scene (my new favorite place) and some Penzey’s Pasta Sprinkle in the crust. I also used Applegate Farms Chicken and Turkey Sweet Italian Sausage and skipped the pumpkin. Here’s some pics, enjoy:
