Paleo Chili


With the fall and winter seasons upon us, it is definitely time for some comfort foods. Pre-paleo I wasn’t a fan of beans, so chili wasn’t one of my favorite foods (well, I loved Melissa Howell’s chili, but that’s it!). Now that Brett and I follow a paleo diet, beans aren’t a problem for us! I found this recipe on Pinterest and became determined to make it!

I did make a few changes and the results were awesome! I’ve cooked it almost weekly since finding it!

Ingredients:
2Tbsp cooking oil (I use bacon grease or olive oil)
2lbs. ground turkey (or beef)
2Tbsp chili powder
2Tbsp cumin
1tsp oregano
1tsp allspice
1tsp salt
1 large white onion diced
4oz. tomato paste
28oz. can crushed tomatoes
14 oz can crushed tomatoes
14 oz can diced tomatoes

Directions:

Place the cooking oil, onion and ground meat into a large saucepan. Brown the meat.

Leaving all the healthy fat from the meat, add all other ingredients!

Simmer for 1-2 hours (I only wait an hour before devouring mine).

I always sliced up an avocado and place in chili!

Enjoy!

 
 

Lemon Artichoke Pork/ Chicken/ Turkey Wings


I’m a huge fan of lemon. I really enjoy the taste of capers, and I actually like artichokes. These three items seemed like they would work well together, so I decided to create another recipe! Enter Lemon Artichoke (whatever white meat you choose).

I’ve made the recipe with chicken breasts and turkey wings so far, but I KNOW it would make an awesome pork roast or pork tenderloin recipe as well. Even better, it’s super easy!

Ingredients:

Meat of your choice to serve 4-6 people.

2   14 oz cans of artichoke hearts (I used quartered)

1   3.5 oz jar capers

2 lemons, quartered

 

Process:

Place all ingredients in the crockpot. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
