Every Day Paleo

By Nancy Smorch, Foodie Bitch

This book has extremely good recipes, very good ideas for everyday eating, and diet changes.  Overall a very resourceful book, and a good one to have in stock.

One of my favorite recipes, as well as my family’s is – Better Butter Chicken (also made it vegetarian for my girls).  On page 59

I added cauliflower, sweet onions, peas, potatoes, zucchini and yellow squash.  Very very good, as well as easy to prepare.

You can purchase the book here, for other wonderful recipes.  http://www.amazon.com/Everyday-Paleo-Sarah-Fragoso/dp/098256581X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1343347970&sr=1-1&keywords=everyday+paleo 

Can be made GF & vegan (and still taste just as amazing).

Thanks amazon for the photo.

Healthy & Easy Lunch

By Nancy Smorch, Foodie Bitch

This is always something I make for lunch when I’m feeling extra creative.

Rice and Veggie Stir Fry GF (all or most organic)

For the stir fry.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Spinach ( I always add more because it shrinks as it cooks), can substitute for Kale.

Mushrooms

Vidalia Onion (maybe 1 whole onion), could substitue for a Red Onion

Red &/or Green Peppers (still tastes great if you don’t have them)

2 Cloves of Garlic

Half of a Egg Plant

1 Yellow Squash

1 Zucchini

For The Sauce

GF Soy Sauce (be careful not to add to much, just roughly a teaspoon or two)

Brown Rice Vinegar (just a teaspoon of this)

Extra for people who can eat gluten – Hoisin Sauce (just a teaspoon or so)

Now The Rice

I usually use Eco Farmed White Arborio Rice.  But another great rice is Basmati Rice, because it’s more fluffy and just fun to eat.

Brief Instructions

First you’ll want to add enough olive oil to cover the bottom (but not drown everyone), and turn the burner on to Med low.  Then add in your veggies, I usually like to add in the veggies that take longer to cook first, then slowly add in the others (unless I’m in a hurry).

You can go ahead and start your rice whenever you’d like to, I just follow the instructions on the back.

Once your stir fry is almost done, but not totally ( you can usually tell when your onions get almost see through, or you taste it and it tastes fine to you).  But then you’ll want to add in your soy sauce and brown rice vinegar, and just cook it all together for another minute or so.  Then your veggies should be done :) & you have successfully made Stir Fry.

The fun thing about Stir Frying is that it doesn’t have to be perfect.  You can just add what ever veggies you like, or just happen to have in your fridge, and it’s always fun and easy to make.   

Thank your guys for reading and I hope you enjoyed the recipe :)

 

 

 

Thanks Pinterest

Found this on Pinterest the other day and am in love with it :)

But I would have to say I love Vanilla Soy milk instead of Almond, but both are great.  I also add a little bit of – Certified Organic French Vanilla syrup (but be careful not to add to much).

But I love it because I do not have  to add extra sugar (other than the syrup).  But it tastes wonderful without the syrup.
