PALEO EATING » Heart That Built Me

PALEO EATING

In January of 2015, after each of our family members has spent years struggling with stomach issues we decided to go ‘Paleo’. There are about a billion ideas and opinions of what eating Paleo should look like. For our family it means we eat a lot of grass-fed meat (and a fair amount of sugar-free bacon), veggies, nuts (except peanuts) and fruit. I cook. A lot. And I love it, because I’ve seen first hand how much better each member of our family feels. I’m 98% certain our son was meant to be born during the Cave-man era given his sweet little system has a hard time processing anything that is not ‘real’ food. It’s a lot of work (some people try to tell you it’s not – I respectfully disagree). For us it is so very worth it, and delicious too!

I use my slowcooker a few times a week, my food processor is also a staple. I try to make a whole batch of items we eat a lot, usually breakfast items (muffins, pancakes, bacon) so I can quickly heat it up in the morning. With a little guy who can’t eat eggs, breakfast is still our biggest struggle.

Here are a whole slew of my favorite recipes. If there isn’t a link, it’s something I’ve created myself. I hope you enjoy. I’d love to know what you, and your family, think if you make any of these delicious dishes.

Civilized Caveman Cooking is hands-down my go-to site for recipes. He is so creative with his food…and he loves bacon. Win+Win! (Please note the muffin, smoothie and stuffed sweet potato images are from his site…I will be updating them soon)

I am currently working out the best way to set this section up, so bear with me as I figure out the most user friendly way to link you to all kinds of delicious food!!
