I saw this recipe on the Paleo Diet Lifestyle last month and could not resist sending the recipe to the BF.  I almost forgot about it till this morning when the BF decided to make it !!!! We ran out of pepper and basil at home and the boy insisted on going to the store to get them so he can make this dish.

Definitely worth the trip to the store.. this is so so delicious.

1 tbsp Paleo cooking fat;
1/2 onion, chopped;
1 clove garlic, minced;
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped;
 4 cups tomatoes, diced;
2 tbsp tomato paste;
1 tsp chilli powder;
1 tsp paprika;
A pinch cayenne pepper;
Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste;
5 or 6 large eggs; 1/2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped;

1. Place a large skillet over a medium heat and add the cooking fat to allow it to melt and grease the surface of the pan.
2. Add the onions and sauté for two minutes. Mix in the garlic and continue to cook until the onions become tender and slightly golden in colour.
3. Add the chopped bell pepper to the skillet and mix well. Sauté for at least 5 minutes, just until the pepper is tender. Once the peppers have cooked, add the chopped tomatoes and tomato paste to the skillet, followed by the chilli powder, paprika and cayenne pepper.
4. Give the mixture a taste and add any additional spices, as well as the salt and pepper to your liking.
5. Allow the mixture to simmer. At this point, you may have to lower the heat to prevent the mixture from boiling. Now crack the eggs into the skillet on top of the tomato mixture. Make sure they are spaced evenly. I placed one in the middle and then surrounded it with the rest of the eggs.
6. Cover the skillet and cook for anywhere between 10 to 15 minutes. You will know when the dish is ready as the eggs will be white and no clear liquids will run. Once the eggs have cooked through, garnish with the fresh parsley and serve it up.

Gluten free, Soy Free, Dairy Free Paleo Fiendly Chocolate pound cake

I have been thinking chocolate for last few days but could not decide what to bake. We were on the way back from our practice run this morning  and I decided to create my own chocolate pound cake using the basic coconut bread recipe.

It turned out pretty yummy :)

1/2 cup of coconut flour, sifted
1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa, sifted
1 teaspoon of baking powder
5 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla
11/2 tablespoon of honey
1/2 cup of canola oil
2 mashed banana

1. Combine the  first 3 ingredients in a bowl
2. Beat the eggs till frothy
3. Beat in oil, vanilla, honey, banana, and oil to the egg
4. Add in the dry ingredients
5. Pour into prepared pan and baked at 350 for 50 minutes


Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free Paleo Friendly Energy Bar

The main challenge of being an athlete on Paleo is that most sports nutrition products are not Paleo friendly. We have been looking for a Paleo friendly energy bar. Lana bar is probably the only product which is Paleo friendly. However, we are not a fan of Lana.

The BF is doing a 60K race this weekend and requested for a Paleo Energy bar. I did some research but could find a recipe which I like.  Last resort....I decided to concoct my own recipe.  

It actually came out really good.... according to the BF :)

1/4 cup of silver almonds
1/2 cup of sunflower seed
1 cup of apricot
1/4 cup of almond meal
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1/4 cup of almond butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 tablespoon of honey ( more if you like it sweeter)
1 egg

1. Chop the first 3 ingredients in a good processor till a course mixture
2. Combined the coconut oil, almond butter, vanilla and honey till a smooth mixture ( Tip: you may need to warm the coconut oil and almond butter to create a smooth consistency. Microwave for about 20-30 sec)
3. Combine the nut and fruit mixture to the coconut oil mixture
4. Fold in almond meal
5. Add the egg and combine
6. Bake in a 325 oven for 20-25 mins
7. Cool and cut into pieces.

Easy ... :)

Paleo Friendly Ice Cream

My friend sent me this recipe and insisted that I should try this recipe. I was skeptical at first and waited till now to try  it. Gosh.. I did fall in love with this ice cream recipe

It is essential made up of one ingredient - frozen banana

1. Take 2-3 frozen bananas (you can freeze them in ziplock bags or in tupperware) and throw them in your food processor

2. Turn the processor on and let it run for about five minutes, stopping every now and then to scrape it down. The bananas should get increasingly light, fluffy, and smooth. By the time you’re done, they’ll resemble a creamy bowl of soft serve

3. Variation: You make some raw chocolate “syrup” by combining 2 tablespoons of agave nectar with 1 tablespoon raw or dark cocoa powder or add some frozen strawberry to the banana for a strawberry banana !


Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free.. Paleo Friendly Bread

I have been searching for a good bread recipe that works as sandwich bread. This recipe from Elana's pantry is probably the closest .. not exactly the same as the whole wheat bread but close enough.

1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
2 tablespoons coconut flour
 ¼ cup golden flaxseed meal
¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
5 eggs
 ¼ cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1. Place almond flour, coconut flour, flax, salt and baking soda in a food processor
2. Pulse ingredients together
3. Pulse in eggs, oil, honey and vinegar
4. Pour batter into a greased 7.5" x 3.5" Magic Line Loaf Pan Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. ( I have to bake mine for 50 mins)
5.  Cool and serve
