Paleo Asian-Style Turkey and Mushroom Lettuce Wraps

That’s right. We’re still rockin’ the Paleo train over at casa HRx.

Paleo Asian-Style Turkey Lettuce Wraps 4

And, you know what? I don’t hate it. I mean, I REALLY don’t hate it. In fact, I kind of love it. Ok, love is a strong word but I have pretty deep lustful feelings about it right now. This coming from the girl whose favorite meal is carbs and cheese.

Seriously, though, going Paleo takes a little bit of extra work (which is a total downer right about now when I have my hands full feeding this guy) but, on the positive, I’m surprisingly full all the time, I feel lighter, my skin is clearing up and my taste buds have been doing nothing but happy dances. Even Alasdair is on board – although he’s always on board for more meat. He’s even on board with the veggie part, especially when those veggies are drowning in olive oil and roasted garlic. And Paleo, for me, is really about upping the veggies. We’re not eating that much more meat than usual but we are substituting veggies in creative ways for starchy, carby, grainy things (can you say zucchini noodles)?…

Roasted Garlic and Chive Cauliflower Mash (GF, DF, V, Paleo)

Roasted Red Pepper, Goat Cheese and Fennel Pasta

Oh hello. I didn’t see you there. You see, I’m currently sleep typing. I’m sitting up, eyes wide open, staring at the screen, little (still puffy) fingers typing away, but I’m fast asleep. In fact, this may all be just a dream. Zzzzz…. I often dream of pasta. I don’t often dream that I’m typing…

Quick & Easy Garlic-Oregano Pizza Dough

I’m not one to shy away from making things from scratch, but I always feel a teensy-tiny bit of trepidation when I have to make pizza dough. Really, dough of any kind. The kneading, the rolling, the rising, the waiting – it’s all a little much, don’t ya think? Of course, the guys at the…
