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!

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


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!



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!


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



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