Paleo Approved Part 1

I mentioned in a post here that I was giving Paleo a try. The recipes you can find are incredible. Easy, delicious and obviously pretty darn good for you. I am a sweets addict, so when paging through Paleo cookbooks on my Kindle I was drawn to cakes, muffins, breads and cookies. I attempted my second Paleo “sweets” last night…my first was the Paleo Banana Bread

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs ground beef (I used grass fed)
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 green peppers (chopped)
  • 1/2 onion (chopped)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • garlic

Directions:

Saute the peppers, onions and garlic in olive oil until they are soft. Pour in ground beef and let it brown for a few minutes. Transfer all ingredients to crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours. I also added 1/2 avocado and some grape tomatoes to the top. YUM

Cauliflower Rice is SOOOO easy and delicious…take a head of cauliflower chop it up a little and place in a food processor…grind or chop it up then place in a microwave for about 5 minutes…put some garlic/salt/pepper and wham!
