Have you been eating clean with no trouble whatsoever?
(…. Well bully for you. Mine is more of a struggle lately, but I’m two days 100 percent clean eating and feeling hopeful. Day by day!).
Anyhow, here are a few recipes that I’ve been relying on lately and that I encourage you to check out!
Fresh Tart’s Plantain Tortillas has been an exciting addition to our meals lately! It’s just oil, salt, and plantains in a food processor, then bake for some time. Chewy texture, savory, and slightly salty… just yum! We’ve eaten them with just Nutiva “buttery spread” (palm oil and coconut oil) and as tacos with a delicious shaved london broil with coconut aminos, garlic, and cilantro. This definitely ranks as my favorite meal right now!
Gutsy By Nature’s Breakfast Sausage has been the star of my batch cooking lately (however, I sub coconut sugar for the maple syrup because it’s cheaper and I don’t do maple syrup very well)! Instead of paying $5.99/10oz package of Wellshire Farms sausage (however delicious it is…), we can pay $5.99/16oz of local ground pork and make homemade sausage. In the most recent batch, I made 3lbs+ into sausage link forms and baked them until done. We store them in the freezer in a big bag and pull out 4 1-oz links to add with some frozen vegetables. Takes away one major decision for the day and it’s super delicious!
He Won’t Know It’s Paleo’s No-Nightshade Ketchup is a little more savory than ketchup and closer to barbeque… but it’s still delicious! I’ve made two batches recently and I keep half in the fridge and freeze half. The next time I make it I plan to quadruple the recipe and freeze even more. It’s AWESOME on anything you’d use ketchup or barbeque sauce for, like sweet potato fries or hash, meat, or hotdogs.
This doesn’t count as a batch cook, but I also made The Paleo Parent’s Creamy Chocolate Chip Macaroons (leave out chocolate chips for AIP) and it was a wonderful cookie treat. I couldn’t eat more than a little bit because it made my stomach hurt (I suspect the maple, so next time I will make it with honey), but I definitely want to try it again and it was JHubbs-approved. (FYI: a food processor makes coconut butter a much cheaper reality!).
