EATING CLEAN PALEO IN REAL LIFE
HI, HELLO, HEY! I’M SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU HERE WITH ME.
I hope the recipes in this book will inspire you to view cooking as an act of care for yourself and others rather than as a chore. If you have friends or family members who are struggling with health issues and you’d like to help them turn over a new leaf and change their lives, I hope you will serve them a recipe from this book. My wish is that after trying a Clean Paleo version of their favorite dish, they’ll realize that giving their diet an overhaul and using real food ingredients doesn’t need to be complicated.
I created this book in hopes that it would become a valuable resource for people looking to change their relationship with food. I want them to see that they can have gorgeous breakfasts, sumptuous meals, amazing snacks, and yes, even decadent desserts, without feeling deprived.
But my greatest hope in writing Clean Paleo Real Life is that you will cook from it so often that you wear this book out.
I don’t want it to be sitting on your coffee table, collecting dust. This book belongs in your kitchen, covered in sticky notes and sticky fingerprints. I want these recipes to become your new favorites—the dinners you serve to nourish your family or friends at parties and holidays. That is what real life and real cooking means to me.
Cashew cheese chilaquiles
Chilaquiles are a fabulous breakfast dish that includes fried corn tortilla pieces, cooked in salsa, and then topped off with cheese. You can easily make chilaquiles at home that will make you quickly forget about any chilaquiles you have ever ordered at a restaurant. For starters, the cashew cheese is so creamy and delightful, you’re going to want it as a dip for anything and everything. It pairs well with the spicy, tangy chicken, and all the flavors combined are a serious symphony of deliciousness. This would be a fabulous meal to make for brunch or breakfast on a slow morning—plan ahead and marinate the chicken before you head to bed.
The best dang broccoli salad
There’s nothing like a creamy-crunchy broccoli salad, am I right? This is a pretty classic rendition—with bacon, red onion, almonds, and raisins—but the dressing is what really takes it over the moon. Bring it to a potluck, eat it as a side dish, or top it off with your favorite protein for a complete meal. It’s fabulous any way you swing it!
Shrimp cakes with lemon aioli
These little cakes make for the perfect hors d’oeuvres for any get-together. The basil and Parmesan cheese inside really take them over the top. The cakes come together very quickly, and the lemony aioli on the side is just the right accompaniment. I’ve even topped off some awesome salads with these shrimp cakes. You can thin out the lemon aioli with some water and turn it into a dressing. Voilà!
Clean paleo chicken curry
This flavor-forward, easy chicken curry is made with all kinds of spices and nutrient-dense veggies. Try it once and you’ll find yourself making this pretty curry time and time again. Serve it with cauliflower rice, rice, or naan bread.
Rice pasta with pumpkin alfredo
It’s no secret I’m a carnivore through and through. However, once in a blue moon, I come up with a really delicious vegetarian main dish that is something to get really excited about. This rice pasta with pumpkin alfredo is one of those recipes. You may be thinking: “Pumpkin alfredo? What? Why?” Once you try it, though, there will be no more questions. It’s going to taste warm, comforting, and reminiscent of all the coziest and best feelings. Thank me after!
Truffled polenta rounds
This is a recipe from my husband Tim’s heart, and I am just a guest there sharing that space. He made this dish for me for the first time while I was pregnant, and I have requested it as often as possible since then. I love his innovation of adding extra butter to each polenta round while they are cooking— it’s pure genius and it gives them so much fatty goodness and depth of flavor. These are perfect as an appetizer or as a side to any entrée.
Five-minute chocolate chip blondies
There’s a new chocolate chip recipe in town, and it takes just five minutes to prep! These blondies are going to change your life. You can throw all the ingredients into the food processor and have the best grain-free, dairy-free, and paleo dessert ready in no time. Topped off with dark chocolate chunks and flaky sea salt, they make for an absolutely irresistible treat!
Cinnamon crumb coffee cake
The only fond memory I have from my time working at a big coffee chain is their addictive cinnamon crumb coffee cake. What sends my version over the edge is the top layer. The crunchy combination of nuts and dates prepares you for what’s to come: soft, pillowy layers of cinnamon cake.
