We have decided to start a blog to share our recipes and to also keep them in a place we can easily access them. We hope you enjoy them and the little tid bits of our lives that we throw in. Most recipes will be based on primal principles although a few non-primal baked goods may slip in :)

Primal Spaghetti and Meatballs

We love spaghetti squash and as soon as we found this recipe for meatballs on Mark's Daily Apple we knew we had to have spaghetti and meatballs :O)

Here is the recipe for the meatballs. There are other great recipes in this link. We have also made the mashed cauliflower and turnips AND they are way better than mashed parsnips!!!


Once again ground lamb was cheaper than other ground meats so we used that. Also, make sure your pan is up to temp if you do cover them in bacon or you will have it all fall apart and stick to your pan...whoops.


Paleo Chinese

We love PF Changs but hate how much salt is used. Usually we do the primal lettuce wraps but we found a recipe for cauliflower rice and decided to try that.

Here is the recipe to the rice. The only thing I would change is instead of olive oil I would use butter or bacon fat to add more flavor. It is a very plain dish and definitely needs to be a side OR try the dirty rice from this site as well.

For the meat and veggies portion we have combined a couple recipes.

2 pounds of chicken
3 tbsp of Tamari wheat free soy sauce
2 zucchinis diced
mushrooms diced
sesame oil to taste (Adam doesn't like it so I add it once cooked)
2 peppers diced
1 cup of green onions diced

Dice chicken and cook in skillet. Once cooked send through the food processor.

In same skillet add all veggies and soy sauce. Then mix in chicken.


Stuffed Zucchini = a possible allergy for Ang

So we have been super busy with work and finalizing the move. We still have a lot of cleaning to do at the house and the apartment but slowly we are transitioning to the house. AND WE LOVE IT! Ang has gotten back into running and has explored the neighborhood, there are great streets with hills. Adam loves the space for all the bikes and having a yard that we do not have to mow :). So now it is time to play catch up with the blog:

This recipe is delicious!! However, this may have lead us to find out that Ang may be allergic to eggplant... We found the recipe at one of our favorite paleo websites, Everyday Paleo. Here is the recipe.


We used ground lamb because surprisingly it was cheaper than other ground meats. We also used dry herbs.
