Paleo Broccoli Salad

Complete utilization of ingredients is the name of the game with this salad. We’re using the entire broccoli–florets to stem, plus bacon and all its glorious drippings. More often than not, Southern broccoli salad consists of a mayonnaise base.…

Beef Most Popular

Primal Philly Cheesesteak in a Bowl

Cheap, easy and a quick go-to meal, if you ask me. Who needs bread, when you can knife-n-fork it? You’re not losing any flavor, just a bit of texture–but really, who likes soppy, gloppy bread? No one. I stand…


Primal Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Brandon’s birthday was the other day and neither one of us wanted to gorge out on birthday cake, but believe me, that does happen every once in a while. So I decided to challenge myself by making something that…

Beef Soups

Melt in Your Mouth Beef Stew

Practically every recipe for beef stew calls for “stew beef.” I’ve seen it in the store. I’ve used it without much success in stew. But really, what the heck is it? After a bit of research, I found it’s…


Paleo Oven Fried Green Tomatoes

Another classic Southern dish right hereeeeee! We’ve replaced the bread crumbs with almond flour (no big surprise there) and it gives a nice cornmeal-like crunch to the tomatoes. When you coat things to fry, you dredge in flour, then…

Pork Poultry Soups

I have a difficult time talking myself into making ceviche at home. Even though we’re not far from the coast here in Columbia, South Carolina, it is quite difficult to source fresh, wild ceviche-makin’ seafood. Insert lightbulb overhead. Why…

Beef Treats


Okay, I’m going to start right out by saying these suckers have the same carbohydrate load as a regular corn chip set of nachos. We just had a hankering for a cheat night, but really didn’t want to ingest…

Poultry Salads

African Style Chicken Salad

We were on a mission with this recipe. A mission to make ourselves like arugula and…chicken breasts. We’ve both always thought arugula tasted like dirt and chicken breasts were more often than not– dry, rubbery and overcooked excuses for…
