Now that fall has finally hit, I’ve been craving soups on soups on soups. I pulled an old goodie last week, but was wanting something else and got inspired by this recipe from Paleo Cupboard. This was so delicious, I’m making again this weekend to take to a football watch party. We even changed up a few more things second go around, but it ended up being slightly more watery than the first attempt, so we added even more pureed cauliflower. Enjoy!

First of all, I apologize for slacking on the blog…but I have a goal for the fall to post a new recipe on a weekly basis! I slacked hard core this summer just making the same old stuff over and over again as well as grilling the typical summer foods! Soooo, I decided when I got Rachael Ray’s magazine  in the mail that I would pick it up and browse to get some inspiration for new recipes and within,  the first few pages, had it. German-style turkey burgers. Unfortunately I cannot find this recipe on her site to share with you, but as soon as I do, I’ll update this post. I added a few things to make it my own and paleo, but she definitely nailed this one in flavor!

Asian Carrot Ginger Dressing July 17, 2013

I’ve re-recently become obsessed with this dressing. I’ve had it at several sushi places and always laugh when I remember the first time I ordered a side salad and a small bowl of chopped iceberg lettuce and tomatoes came out. I was so disappointed until I took a bite and the dressing was wonderful. Good thing the side salads were only $1.99 🙂   I’ve been trying to get more fish in my life and love making ahi tuna at home paired with this salad that I have came to love with a paleo twist on the dressing. IMG_20130710_192020 (more…)

“Mac and Cheese” June 19, 2013

I seriously love mac and cheese; however, it doesn’t love me. Since eating mostly paleo, I really can’t tolerate much gluten and mac and cheese is a gluten-lovers heaven next to spaghetti and cheese bread. I always thought I was somewhat lactose intolerant, but found out I can tolerate small amounts of cheese. Plus, I paired this dish with bacon and who doesn’t love bacon!

I need to get back to blogging, seriously. I’ve been making some delicious things, but sometimes can’t remember exactly how I made it….anyways. I was looking through our fridge a while back and had some pineapple, part of a jicima, and a bag of coleslaw and this is what I came up with. Pretty light and refreshing, yet filling enough to be paired with some burgers we grilled up!




Shrimp and BACON Fried “Rice” March 7, 2013

Filed under: Asian,Seafood — fitandfresh @ 9:15 am

I was really struggling with what to have for dinner the other night. I had shrimp in the freezer and thought about bacon wrapped shrimp but also had a head of cauliflower and thought fried rice sounded good. Then I was like….WHY NOT HAVE BACON SHRIMP FRIED RICE! Duh, should have thought about that one a long time ago…it was amazing.
