Easter Goes Paleo: Recipe Round Up

by Maria on April 16, 2014

Celebrating Easter this weekend? Are you a procrastinator like me? Okay, glad to know I’m not alone. I’ve managed to round up some potential recipes and figured I’d share them with you before you make your trip to the grocery store.

Just a couple things before I start sharing. One, these recipes are all Paleo. Two, you don’t have to tell your guests they are Paleo (unless they prefer it or they have Gluten intolerance). Personally, I come from a family that fear the unknown (and anything that is not bread or pasta) so if I just don’t tell them, it’s better. And to be honest, these recipes made in a traditional way are Paleo anyway. Well… minus the desserts!

And now, your recipes!

Appetizers

Fig Tapenade with Walnut Crackers via Elana’s Pantry

BBQ Bacon Asparagus via Civilized Caveman Cooking

Paleo Guacamole Stuffed Deviled Eggs via Kim’s Healthy Eats

Side Dishes

 

Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad via What’s Gaby Cooking

Asparagus Quiche with Spaghetti Squash Crust via The Saffron Girl

Main Course

Herb Crusted Leg of Lamb via PaleOMG

Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Zesty Dry Rub via Tide & Thyme

Desserts

Lemon Bars via Taylor Made it Paleo

Raw Carrot Cake Balls via The Urban Poser

Of course, I created a Pinterest “Easter” board where you can find these recipes along with some other great options. I’m going to do my best to distract my family from pasta and cookies this Sunday, so please let me know how your Easter meals turn out!

What recipe would you most like to try?

What is your traditional Easter meal like?

MIMM: Springing Around

by Maria on April 14, 2014

Um, Hi Spring!! I hope you all had the opportunity to savor the wonderful weather this weekend and if you have today off, or Spring break for the remainder of the week…wanna trade? I could always use an extra day in the weekend, which means more marvelous.

I had a marvelous cleaning spree on Saturday. I felt that my apartment needed a good disenfecting after my bronchitis stint. Whenever I clean, I’m more thankful that I have a smaller space! I spent the afternoon at my parents and when I came back home, it smelled so wonderful and lemony fresh, heaven!

A marvelous night in the kitchen. I gave the cauliflower pizza another go, but used sauce this time. Even better than my first!

And what’s pizza without some dessert? I used this recipe from Lexi’s Clean Kitchen for Paleo brownies. Don’t let the picture fool you, these were delicious!

A marvelous Palm Sunday at church with my bestie. I finally learned how to make crosses out of my palm leaves! Thanks to YouTube, I’m officially a pro.

Palms

A truly marvelous weather weekend. I had my door open while I was home, savoring the warm breeze and the view in my courtyard. I cannot wait for the trees to bloom and the pool to open!

Another marvelous dinner at home. Trader Joe’s salmon burger in lettuce cups with an asparagus salad on the side. I downed some sweet potatoes afterwards since they were still in the oven.

A marvelous read on building your core with L-sits. I’ve been practicing these holds ever since I installed my pull up bar. I tell you, it’s really convenient when I’m waiting for food to cook.

What marvelous Spring things did you do this weekend? 

What are you looking forward to this week?

WIAW: If it Fits in a Bowl

April 9, 2014

It’s Wednesday and I know how much you all love knowing when I’m eating. Why? I’m not really sure because lately if it fits in a bowl, I’ll eat it. My meals are essentially deconstructed messes, and none of them require “recipes” when all you’re doing is throwing things into a bowl and topping it [...]

MIMM: When You Need to Slow Down

April 7, 2014

I like to think my case of bronchitis was a sign from the universe to slow down. I did, and I slept. A lot. And I plan on sleeping, a lot more. While I was awake for limited hours this weekend, I enjoyed the moments. It was difficult for me to do much of anything on [...]

Thinking Out Loud No. 10

April 3, 2014

As if Thinking Out Loud Thursdays weren’t random enough, this post will be a jumble of anything. Mostly because I’m not feeling well and could use some sleep, like this one other time I got sick. If anything, it should be called “Coughing out Loud”. I recently got on a talk radio kick. It’s mostly [...]

MIMM: I Will Not Flag nor Fail

March 17, 2014

Did you miss me last week, friends? Well, I missed you. I wish I could say I was on vacation somewhere tropical, warm and beautiful but unfortunately, this was not the case. All I have to say is that life is unpredictable and sometimes it’s great, and sometimes, it’s not. Regardless, I still had a [...]

MIMM: Pure-ly Marvelous Weekend

March 10, 2014

Is anyone else kinda bummed that our weekend was technically one hour shorter? I’m okay with it given that I was eating dinner while the sun was still shinning into my apartment.

Thinking Out Loud No. 9

March 6, 2014

It’s only Thursday, that’s how I’m feeling today. All week, I have felt as though I have been a day ahead. I just hope this means I get an extra Friday somewhere. It’s been a while since my last Thinking Out Loud post, so I thought I’d join Amanda in my ramblings. 1. 40 days. [...]
