Strawberry Vinaigrette


This is my staple vinaigrette in the house, very few ingredients and simple to make.  All you need is some sort of device to puree it – I use an emersion blender.  Ever since my kids first helped to make this one, its been a hit with them.  Best of all, no sugar needed.

Serving: 0.5 L

Ingredients:

  • 1 pint Strawberries
  • 1/3 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 small Red Onion, diced
  • 12 Basil Leaves, fresh
  • 1/8 tsp Thyme, dried
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

  • 4 Fresh Basil Leaves, Julienne

  • 1/2 tsp Fresh Thyme, chopped

Acorn Mac & Three-Cheeses with Caramelized Shallots


OK, so there’s no macaroni in this, since macaroni is made from whole or enriched grains which isn’t Paleo 2.0.  Instead it’s made from the flesh of an Acorn Squash.  However it does have cheese in it, in fact three types.  There’s just no way to make a Mac & Cheese without the cheese.  Since there are three different types of cheese in this comfort food, this isn’t an everyday meal.  If your goal is to lose weight and your following a paleo/primal diet, you should stay away from this meal.

4 Servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 Acorn Squash
  • 2 tbsp of Butter, clarified
  • 3 shallots
  • 1/2 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 c Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Hot Sauce
  • 100 g Cheddar, Old
  • 1 tsp Coconut Flour
  • 60 g Gorgonzola
  • 60 g Goat Cheese
  • Salt & Pepper
