Paleo (starch/legume-free) Hummus

I thought I was making some sort of guacamole type dressing, turned out to taste JUST like hummus. It couldn’t be easier.

  • 2-1/2 avocados
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped

throw into blender and let it grind until smooth.  DONE. No other ingredients needed, this stuff is delicious!

Side tip:  ADD CHIA SEEDS OR FLAXSEED TO YOUR EGGS!  No one will ever know/taste the difference.

 

Balls of Energy

First of all, THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!

I can’t help myself you guys… and a part of me will always have the mind of a 12 year old as well as a kindred love of Michael Scott from The Office. So… anyways.  Balls of energy.  Energy Balls. Whatever you wanna call ’em, these things are good!  And awesome to keep around for a quick snack or late afternoon nibble. They give you a fairly decent uplift in energy, but I wouldn’t say the kind you’d need if you were… say… trying to kick a cocaine + caffeine habit.  Still… these are great.

Paleo-ized Bananas Foster

Paleo Bananas FosterGo and get:

  • maple syrup
  • cinnamon
  • 1-2 bananas
  • chopped walnuts or macadamias
  • pure coconut milk
  • love

Then do this:

peel bananas and cut them up into bite sized pieces and place in a serving bowl.  Add the coconut milk slightly 1/4 way to top of bananas (you don’t want to drown them and make them mushy).  Sprinkle cinnamon on top (go ahead… suffocate those nanners with cinnamon if you like).  Then carefully drizzle the maple syrup over the top (too much will be way too sweet… pretend you’re a chef at a super eclectic restaurant who only puts a dot of chocolate syrup on the cheesecake)… just enough to create thin lines over the bananas. Then add the nuts & love on top and enjoy!

Paleo Ski Chilli

 

I love skiing and I love chilli.  To me, you can’t have one without the other.  Anytime I travel to the slopes, I can already smell the chilli permeating the condo or hotel room.  The neat thing is, most places you can stay at in ski towns tend to outfit their rooms with everything you need to cook.  It’s a thing.

Almond Flour Protein Waffles

I decided to put my plain (no flavor) whey powder to use.  Off course, no protein powder is 100% Paleo, but this is one small area where I try to get there as best as I can, but don’t beat myself up if it’s not 100%.  This is one (unflavored) is probably as close as you’ll get but once you begin using the vanilla or chocolate flavored versions, you’re adding in soy & dairy no doubt, but very little.
