Before my recipes I thought I would pass along grocery info:
Costco is a great place to buy several paleo things. Pricewise it is substantially cheaper. I buy almond butter (no added sugar), organic broccoli (frozen is cheaper), organic cage free eggs, nitrate and nitrite free bacon and hot dogs.
Trader Joes is the best place to get almond flour affordably (because it is pricey$).
For cooking, coconut oil is your new best friend!
Ok now for a couple of my fave recipes!
Paleo Trail Mix: (excellent snacking option)
1 c whole almonds
1/2 c whole cashews
1/2 c raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 c raw sunflower seeds
1/2 c raisins (golden raisins suggested)
1/2 c dried currants
1/2 c dried blueberries
Combine and store in airtight container. (Try different combos of nuts and dried fruits you like!)
Paleo Pizza: (I have tried several different paleo pizza crusts and this is by far the best!)
1 c almond flour
3 T almond butter
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 t sea salt
3 t olive oil, divided
your favorite pizza toppings (that are paleo of course!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix almond flour, almond butter, eggs, and sea salt in a small bowl
Cover a baking sheet with 2 t olive oil, then spread the mixture over it, about 1/4″ thick. Bake for 10 mins.
While it’s baking, prepare your other ingredients. We like to use a mixture of olive oil and minced garlic along with italian seasoning as our ‘sauce’. For toppings we use bacon, italian sausage, red onions, tomatoes, spinach… just a few suggestions! (I do also put a little shredded cheese over the top just to hold everything together, shhh!)
Remove crust from oven and top with other ingredients (if you are using spinach or other green leaves, don’t put them in until there is just about 7 mins remaining). Bake for 20-30 mins.
