Best Guacamole Recipe…EVER

I’ve never had guacamole that I liked more than my own. Our hotel in Mexico came close, it was great. And this restaurant close to my ‘hood makes a pretty mean guac too, in case you’re ever in the area. They also make some awesome tacos. But I still like my own guac best. I plan on making it for the Super Bowl, along with baked sprouted corn chips a la The Coconut Mama. I know corn chips are not PHD or paleo or any of that, but I’m also not one of the super paleo purists that doesn’t enjoy baking my own corn chips for the Super Bowl. That’s not fun. Guacamole for 2 (just double or triple for more peeps) 1 ripe avocado 1/2 to 1/4 onion (I like a lot of onion) 2 tablespoons cilantro 1 jalapeno (I also love jalapenos) sea salt Directions: Dice the onion, jalapeno and cilantro. Mash…

Grain Free Fried Eggplant Bruschetta (Paleo & Primal)

Ingredients: 1 medium eggplant 2 eggs 1 cup almond flour 1.5 tablespoons coconut flour Spices (I used garlic and paprika) 1 pint sized container of grass-fed ricotta Several tablespoon of fat of choice (I used lard from the farm) Two tomatoes 2 cloves of garlic Several leaves of basil Tablespoon of olive oil Avocado, optional Directions: Peel the eggplant and slice into rounds. In two separate bowls, mix the eggs and then the coconut and almond flours and spices in another. Make your bruschetta, diced the tomatoes, chop the garlic and basil.

Dip the eggplant into the eggs, then the flours, then fry on either side until golden brown. Once all of them are fried, top with the ricotta and the bruschetta, and if you want (or if…

Paleo Banana Caramel Upside Down Cake (Sugar and Grain Free)

Sometimes, I make really good food. Cake Ingredients: 2 bananners 2 pastured eggs 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup raw or coconut milk (optional) 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 2.5 cups almond flour 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt I used this caramel recipe (it’s insanely good). Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Line a pan (I used 9×9) with parchment paper. Slice the nanners and layer them in the bottom of the pan. Follow the directions for the caramel and smooth it over the sliced bananas. Mix all of the cake ingredients until smooth. Spread over the bananas and caramel. Bake for about 30 minutes, check or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool. Take out the cake with the parchment paper and flip it over. I brought this to a Halloween party and my friends really liked it. If you’re wondering if it got good reviews because my friends…

Shrimp Summer Rolls

I love white rice. It’s low in phytic acid, easier to digest than brown rice, and a great form of glucose. Summer rolls are a traditional Asian appetizer that usually come with shrimp and pork, or for a vegetarian version, the dreaded tofu. I just used shrimp for mine. I love making these, and they do really well at parties. Ingredients: half a large head of lettuce half a large red onion two large carrots half a cucumber one to one and a half avocado ten shrimps three tablespoons of mayo one-two tablespoons of rooster sauce (I like it spicy) 6 rice wraps  Directions: Roughly chop the romaine, slice the onion and avocado. Slice or use a spiralizer to get the carrots and cucumber into long, thin strips. Add mayo and rooster sauce to the carrots and cucumbers. If the shrimp is uncooked, give them a quick sear and let cool. Dip the…
