I’ve been under a lot of stress lately, so despite the mostly paleo recipes I’m going to share, I have to admit my diet has gone off the rails. Stress and being tired makes me turn to comfort foods, which are definitely not paleo for me. I’m also getting really sick of eggs for breakfast so I’ve been eating some Stoked Oats instead. Again, not paleo, but still healthy. I usually aim for 80/20 rule, 80% paleo, 20% not. I know that paleo eating is what my body reacts to the best and when I eat more grains and starches I feel more bloated and sluggish. But it doesn’t affect me enough that I deny everything off plan.
That being said, here’s a glimpse of what I’ve been eating lately:
Paleo Cabbage Roll Casserole via Health Bent. I had cabbage in my vegetable share and thought I would try something new. I didn’t love it though and now I have two more heads of cabbage to use. Any suggestions?
Crock Pot Maple Dijon Drumsticks via Skinny Taste. Saw this on Alison’s blog and thought I’d give it a try. It was super yummy. Will make again.
Grilled Kohlrabi. Another vegetable share item.
Rustic Bacon and Pumpkin Soup via The Paleo Mom. I have a bunch of various squash, including three or four pumpkins, from my vegetable share so I was searching for a good soup recipe. This was a major win. I think I died and went to soup heaven when I tasted it. Almost wish I would have made a double batch!
French Toast – It’s a weekend tradition for Liam and I to have pancakes or French toast. I’ve been gravitating to the French toast lately, adding coconut milk, vanilla, and coconut flakes to the batter, then topping with fruit and coconut butter. This particular plate was especially heavenly.
Paleo Chicken Bacon Alfredo via PaleOMG Again, another recipe I tried because of my abundance of squashes. This one called for a delicata squash, which I’d never heard of, but said you could substitute an acorn squash, which I did have. Turns out the next week’s vegetable share contained two delicata squash. I’m tempted to remake this.
Also, all of the beets, carrots, potatoes and leeks that I could ever imagine thanks to the fall vegetable share. I have an abundance and am really running out of creative ideas on how to use them. Any ideas are welcome!
What are some great recipes you’ve tried lately?
Do you stick to a certain diet or meal plan? If so, what?
