Filet Mignon (grass-fed), seasoned with rosemary, thyme, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder. Side of broccoli sautéed up with garlic slices in olive oil. It’s the simple things that make me the happiest.
Roasted Chicken (pasture raised). Rubbed with olive oil, garlic, fresh rosemary, fresh thyme. All ingredients, all organic, all the time! It’s the simplest things that make me the happiest. Ugga-Bugga!
There’s a little diner near me that puts raisins into their chicken salad, and it’s absolutely delicious! But did you know dried fruit has as much sugar as hard candy?! That’s why it’s not recommended to eat dried fruit on paleo (or too much fruit in general if you’re trying to lose weight, because remember, no matter what form it arrives in, sugar is sugar). So when I set out to make chicken salad this morning, I remembered a buddy told me Whole Foods had organic champagne grapes for sale.
I thought they could be a perfect paleo substitute for raisins! So into the mix they went!
All Ingredients, All Organic, All the Time:
Pasture raised chicken breast meat (I like boiled chicken for chicken salad because of the texture and how well it shreds. Roasted or grilled chicken for things like caesar salads though)
Shredded Red Onion
Red Pepper Flakes (I need a kick in everything I eat)
The grapes add sweet, and the spices add savory, plus the grapes added some extra moisture, whereas raisins add none. Great flavor combinations going on! Substitute champagne grapes for raisins in your next paleo recipe!
"What do you mean? Isn’t sausage made of pork, which makes it paleo?" No, Cave-hole, most pork products come from pigs that are not healthy because they’re fed all kinds of crap. Even the cleanest pasture raised pigs I’ve found are still given some supplemental feed that a pig would never eat in the wild. But at the Broken Arrow Ranch the wild boar roam freely, eating what they forage. Then they’re killed humanely, without stress, so the meat has no gaminess to it. Wild animals are leaner, healthier, and what fat they do have is rich in Omega-3 (just like wild salmon and all wild animals). And I’m not even touching the other ingredients in most store bought breakfast sausages, like all the added chemicals, sugars, and salt (tons!), which makes them very un-paleo! READ LABELS!
But these sausages are pure, toxic free, and completely organic.
Ground Wild Boar
Touch of honey (optional)
Hand roll them into links, or make patties, then brown them in a cast iron skillet and they’re done! I served it with a pasture raised sunny egg to dip in (cooked in the sausage fat, yum), and some homemade Caveman Ketchup. You can even use them to make some paleo Thanksgiving stuffing! This sausage is boaring, but not boring! Ugga-Bugga!
I have 5 pounds of ground wild boar to experiment with (the only size package they’ll sell ground wild boar, but believe me, I’ll use it all!). Gonna make some spicy Italian sausage and meatballs in marinara sauce soon! Can’t wait!
