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!

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.

Zucchini Pasta

 

Zucchini Pasta or Zoodles

If you are looking for an alternative to wheat or gluten free pasta, look no more; zucchini pasta are fantabulous!

At home, to avoid wheat or even corn (OGM corn), we have tried different kinds of quinoa and rice noodles.

They tend to get boring very quickly, being too mushy and hard to cook al dente.

Of course, the spaghetti squash is always an option but we felt we need something new.

Zucchini pasta, or zoodles – a short version of zucchini noodles – are a pretty cool choice as they can be eaten raw or slightly heated.

The trick is, you have to keep them crisp.

There is a recipe I’ve been wanting to try for a while.  It’s showing how to make banana bread that doesn’t use much flour but a lot of bananas.

So I decided to test it with the addition of pecans.  I also used extra virgin organic coconut oil instead of clarified butter.

Our Straw Bale Gardening

Straw Bale Gardening - The Gourmet ConfessionThis quote reinforces why I first got interested in straw bale gardening.

It is from Dr. Patrick Quillin about his fruit garden. “Welcome to my pharmacy!….If you are going to spend time on it, if you’re going to water it, make it something you eat’’. 

I heard him say that on the Truth About Cancer series, while he was showing his very own fruit garden, down in sunny California.

Of course, California has a real water challenge.  But his words did make quite an impact on me.

How should one eat organic produce and not pay too much for it?  Simply by making an organic vegetable garden!

Which we did.  Mike and I.
