Paleo Stuffed Peppers

Growing up… Stuffed Peppers were my favorite dinner. Especially on cold winter nights. The warm, sweet pepper. Wrapped around it’s own bowl of goodness… rice, beef, vegetables. At that age I didn’t really even know what was in it. I just knew it was some tasty goodness!

But now that I’m older, I realize those homemade bell peppers weren’t entirely “healthy”. Because most stuffed peppers rely on white rice (refined carbs), ground beef (not so great if factory farmed) and canned tomato sauce (often loaded with sugar), which doesn’t add up for a heart-healthy meal after all.

So I decided to “Paleoize” these peppers. Yes… I just made my own word :)

This recipe is similar to Momma’s Original, but updated to make it even better for you.

Top 25 Quick-And-Easy Paleo Snacks

Paleo Snacks

We’ve all been there…

It’s the middle of the day.

Right around 3pm.

And your stomach starts to growl. It’s been a long day. You had an early lunch.

And you clock out in a few hours.

But the hunger pangs are kicking in. And there are no good options.

In desperation, you grab a 50 cent packaged rice krispie treat from the vending machine.

Hoping that’s a little less damaging than the other toxic goodies.

But after a short sugar rush, you hit a downward spiral and you’re back in desperation mode.

Ever been there?

I know I have.

But nowadays… a bit of pre-planning keeps me fueled with good, healthy food all day long.

And tasty to boot!

So whenever hunger strikes, here are my personal Top 25 favorite Paleo Snacks…

Easy Paleo Honey Mustard Dressing

I eat salads every week. They’re one of my favorite one-bowl meals. Unfortunately, most store-bought salad dressings are NOT paleo. In fact, many of them are laced with sugar, sodium, trans fat, and refined oils. Probably not what you had in mind to pour over your leafy, green vegetables.

Fortunately, with just a few ingredients, you can whip up some tasty Paleo salad dressing in 10 minutes or less. Seriously, once you try it, you’ll wonder why anyone ever buys bottled dressing. If you can shake a jar, you can make your own dressing. As a bonus, it tastes so much better than preservative filled dressings you’re used to.

When you look at this recipe, you’ll see honey among the list of ingredients and may think, “Wait a sec, this is sugar, and sugar is bad right?” Well, yes and no. Yes, honey is sugar, and you don’t want to eat it by the spoonful, but if you buy the right type of honey (raw and organic), it can actually be good for you in small amounts. So use this amazing Paleo honey mustard dressing on a big bowl of fresh greens and veggies, and feel good about it.

Paleo Banana Pancakes

Paleo Banana Pancakes

Is there anything better than a stack of fluffy pancakes doused in maple syrup for a weekend breakfast? Soft, sweet, and pillowy, pancakes are a classic comforting breakfast, but they are definitely not a health food. Loaded with bad fat, refined carbs, and sugar, they’re not much better than eating a doughnut. Yeah, they’re that … Read more…
