a week of meals

All of the meals here are so easy to make and typically require less than 5 ingredients.  Hey, I am all about simplicity!

I am loving all of the Paleo baking that I am doing -experimenting with coconut flour, almond flour, flax meal.  It is amazing all the options beyond white flour.  The great thing is that they actually taste delicious and are truly healthy for you.

As an aside, some of you have emailed to inquire if I am no longer a vegetarian since I am using so many Paleo recipes.  I am still a 100% vegetarian, but I really enjoy using the Paleo recipes for baking. They really do taste yummy.

You can find many of these recipes on this website! Try them and let me know what you think!

Add your suggestions too!

The vibrant colors of the vegetables are what is going in my body.  The peppers are sauteed in olive oil and have a sweetness to them.

Homemade Nicoise version

I use these omelettes to wrap the fixins like a burrito.

Roasted Artic Char and Tomatoes

Miso seaweed soup with  Shitake mushrooms- Perfect for a cold winter night!

Roasted fennel with chili flakes. It takes about 45 minutes in the oven @ 400 degrees.  You can even modify this with other seasoning if you wish.

Honey Walnut Raisin Bread - this is Paleo. This is simply divine! I slather coconut spread/ butter on it and it just melts in your mouth.

Rosemary Bread - this is Paleo. I cut a piece and toast it to make sandwiches out of it.  It is even good dipped in soup. The rich aroma of rosemary prevails.

These grain-free pancakes are made of coconut flour and are the most fluffy delicious thing ever! Look for recipe in the upcoming Asbury Park Press article.

This is so perfect because you can do it the night before and in the morning, Voila! It's already done.
