Paleo Egg Roll in a Bowl!

 

When it comes to shopping for real food ingredients, I love to find convenience foods that save me time in the kitchen – things like frozen cauliflower “rice”, pre-washed spinach, shredded cabbage, etc.

Sometimes these convenience foods come with a higher price, so I like to make it worth my while and use them in multiple meals throughout the week.  The convenience factor goes up every time I prepare a meal, because of the time it has saved me, and that makes this busy momma very happy.

This week, for example, I bought a bag of shredded carrots from Trader Joe’s and used it in three meals throughout the week.  First I used it in my Sausage, Carrot & Zucchini Casserole that I prepped for breakfast this week, next I used it to make Chicken Fried “Rice” (I can’t wait to share this recipe with you!) and then I used it to make the recipe I want to share with you today – Paleo Egg Roll in a Bowl.Paleo Egg Roll in a Bowl - Whole30, Paleo | MadeItLoveItPaleo

The concept is simple, it’s the insides of an eggroll (with a few tweaks), minus the crunchy wrapper, enjoyed in a bowl. There are so many variations of this recipe out there, but I couldn’t find a recipe that was quite what I was looking for, so I worked on a combination of flavors and ingredients that we enjoy and created our own version.

This recipe is completely and ridiculously easy and it’s now on the menu weekly.  It’s delicious, filling and reheats beautifully for leftovers. Did I mention this is a one-pot meal?  That’s right, one pot = one dish to clean.  That’s what I’m talking about!  We throw this all together in our go-to electric frying pan that is seriously the greatest kitchen purchase we have made.  It’s my meal prep workhorse and makes this dish so simple to throw together.

Paleo Taco Bar – Choose your own adventure!

On the last night of a recent visit with my parents, I wanted to treat them to a great home cooked meal.  When they visit, we do a lot of going out to eat and ordering in, but on their last night its become a tradition that I make them a meal we can all enjoy (it also helps to distract from how sad I am to say goodbye).

This visit I made my Slow Cooker Pineapple Chipotle Tacos and because all but a few minutes of this recipe is hands free time in the crockpot, it freed me up to have about 30 minutes before dinner to make a fun taco bar.

Having a taco bar has become one of our new favorite meals. It creates a laid back and really social atmosphere.  It’s fun to see what everyone likes to put on their tacos and you might end up trying something new – like my husband who tried some cilantro on his tacos and loved it.

Everyone assembles their own tacos and includes what they like and skips what they don’t.  This can be a great idea for serving people following various diets. 

If you have people over who enjoy standard flour tortillas, you can serve those alongside some grain-free plantain tortillas or gluten-free crispy corn tortillas.  Everyone can have something that suits them.

Get Ready for your Whole30: Tips to prepare you for your first Whole30

Have you heard of the Whole30?  If you’ve been following this blog, you’ve heard about it and then some.  Sorry not sorry about that.  The Whole30 has changed my life for the better in so many ways, and I want to share as many tips and recipes as I can to help others successfully complete the program.

If you’re new to this blog, here is the Whole30 in a nutshell:

The Whole30 program by Dallas & Melissa Hartwig is a 30 day reset where you eliminate alcohol, dairy, grains, legumes, sugar (real and artificial), and harmful food additives (carrageean, MSG, sulfites) – learn more about it here.  Basically, what you are left with are whole, unprocessed foods that allow your gut to heal, which is crucial to healthy immune responses and overall health.

Doing the Whole30 has been the single most effective thing I’ve done for my health and well-being.  After a couple of failed starts, I was able to complete my first Whole30 in May of last year.  After hearing me rave about how I felt, my husband decided to join me on every round after that. 

Now, it’s become a routine part of our lives.  We like to do a Whole30 every 3-4 months to help us feel our best.  From my first few failed attempts and our successes, I have put together some tips to help you prepare for your Whole30.

Meal Prep like a BOSS

Paleo, Primal, Whole30, Vegetarian, Clean Eating.  Whatever kind of real food lifestyle you’re leading, there is one thing we all have in common. 

Meal Prep.

It has taken us years to become comfortable with meal prep.  It’s now such a firm part of our weekly routine that it’s no longer daunting or overwhelming.  That was most definitely not always the case.

When we first starting eating less processed food, I was completely shocked at the amount of time I was spending in the kitchen.  I felt like I was always cooking or cleaning something with no end in sight. 

The first time I completed a weekend meal prep I was in the kitchen for 5 hours straight and when I was finished it looked like a bomb blew up.  Since that first day, I’ve continued to look for ways to make meal prep easier and more efficient. 

Here are my list of tips to help you meal prep like a boss.
