Chili Organic Ground Beef with Olives

Organic Ground Beef Paleo Recipe

I just love it when a ground beef recipe is simple, yet delicious enough that you’ll want to make extra portions and freeze them. 

This ground beef recipe has the paleo principles you’re aiming for : protéins-vegetables-healthy fats.  Make sure your protein portion isn’t bigger that the size of your hand palm.  

And bonus, this recipe can also be made during a Whole30®.


The Whole30® is an effort to eliminate all food additives, colourings, alcohol,
food preservatives for a complete 30 days.  As an example : liquid vanilla extract without
alcohol – verify your own bottle at home, it probably has some in it!


 

Paleo’s Goal : Avoid All Toxins

As you can see, there is white rice on my plate for this dish.  White rice is in the gray paleo zone.

Why?

Let me explain.  A grain of rice has 3 layers.  

There is the brown hull exterior part (brown rice), there is the middle part and the inside, which is white (white rice).

This is what Mark Sisson has to say about white rice : The common thread is that white, milled, polished rice is basically pure starch. All the chemical negatives are found in the hull, husk, and bran, and those are easily removed or negated. It is essentially a blank slate, nothing all that bad about it, but nothing all that great, either.

That’s why white rice is in the gray zone.  It doesn’t have any nutriments, but no toxins or anti-nutriments either.  It is pure starch.

Conclusion?  Eat it occasionally if you are not trying to loose weight.  Nothing wrong with it.

Ok, now the recipe!  I love the wilted spinach with this chili organic ground beef, yummy!

Chicken Cacciatore

This recipe is based on the Whole30® recipe.  I wanted you to be able to make in a day or two in advance to let the chicken marinate in its juice for extra mucho flavor!

To learn more about the Whole30® program, you can read It Starts with Food.

This program has changed the way Mike and I see our diets.  It revealed all the anxiety and unconscious associations we make with food.  In other words, 30 days of extra awareness of what you put in your plate.
