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.
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.

Feeling guilty when eating dessert? Well, you can start feeling good right now, as this dessert recipe is 100% nutritious!
It’s actually my 17-year old daughter that gave me the idea to create this 2-part dessert. The dark chocolate we use in this recipe is organic and has 70% cocoa content. Everyone can make this dessert!
Take a look at the first part…
If you have a silicon mold at home, it’s very easy to make healthy homemade chocolate hearts. You’ll be sure they don’t have any additives or colorings.
Make sure you get 70% cocoa or more dark chocolate, fair trade and organic.
You are in for a treat. Because next week’s recipe is a healthy pineapple cake.
And it requires you to know how to easily prepare and cut a fresh pineapple.
That’s why Mike is preparing one in front of you in this video.
He is used to doing so for our little family on weekends. Fresh pineapple is a part of our occasional weekend treat.
So, come back next week to get my grain-free, dairy-free and refined sugar free recipe; Healthy Paleo Pineapple Cake. You will see, it’s phenomenal!
I don’t know about you, but here at The Gourmet Confession, 2016 ended with lots happening.
Oh, I’m not going to tell you about my annual goals (they were done 3 months ago), or even tell you about some plain resolutions.
But mostly about effervescence and the buzz going on in our lives.
First, we started the construction of The Gourmet’s new office. The work is well underway with a great deal of vigor. No need to tell you that I am sooooo thrilled!
