Surely by now, you are used to me abandoning you and like any good absentee parent, I return with excuses and apologies. I’m sorry, here’s where I was.

I was at the race track again.

Mexican Chicken and Cauliflower Rice

Mexican Chicken and Cauliflower Rice | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Remember that time when I was Paleo for three weeks? Yeah, that didn’t turn out well; it’s not a lifestyle I can commit to. And you’re all thinking ‘duh, you bake cookies every other day!’ Yeah, well, …. um… shut up! I’m glad I tried it though, because I learned a lot of cool stuff about food and cooking, like, cauliflower can be made into ANYTHING!

I knew it made for good soup already. And remember those Cauliflower Wraps? Well now, I bring you… Cauliflower Rice!

Is there anything this beige Brassicaceae can’t do? Continue reading

Chicken Cordon Vert | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
It’s a well known fact that bacon makes everything better. It’s even more well known that cheese makes everything better. Thus, if redhead math serves me correctly, putting bacon and cheese inside chicken makes it the best chicken ever.

Did you hear that? I think I heard your cardiologist whimpering. He’s upset that I took a perfectly good lean protein like chicken and dirtied it up with greasy bacon and fatty cheese. Alright doc, point well taken. I’m going to shove some spinach in there. Boom. Fighting free radicals. Continue reading

Paleo Crockpot Breakfast Pie

Easy Paleo Breakfast Pie | Adventures of a Hungry RedheadEasy Paleo Breakfast Pie | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Paleo breakfast food is not pretty. It is genius, it is delicious, it is filling, but it is not going on the cover of Taste of Home anytime soon. Must be something about the grey/brown of sausage mixed with the fluorescent green and orange of the vegetables. Combine that with egg yolks and you have… mud.

This recipe is genius. It is easy, it is tasty, it is filling, but it is not pretty. Even the original version that used sweet potato was putting lipstick on a pig when it came time for photos.

This was the first “Paleo” meal I made. I wanted something for breakfast that tasted good and got me through to lunch, but that I didn’t have to spend much time on in the morning. Enter a lovely lass named Juli, her blog PaleOMG and a crockpot. Continue reading

Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Apparently the Paleo Pancakes trend has come and gone. Throughout January, my post on Simple Paleo Pancakes (the kind that involves one banana and two eggs) was pulling big traffic into my site. Either everyone has now figured out how to make the two-ingredient paleo pancakes and no longer needed to search, or everyone has given up on eating healthy and is making thick and fluffy buttermilk pancakes these days. I, however, will resurrect the paleo pancake today. I will be Justin Timberlake : I’m bringing Paleo Pancakes back. Continue reading

Simple Paleo Pancakes | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Oh Pinterest, you vixen. Enticing me with indulgent food, outfits I could never put together by myself,  cute sleepy puppies, inspirational quotes that I forget 10 minutes later, six-pack abs, and deceptive craft projects that require seven trips to Michael’s. Can I believe you when you tell me that two eggs plus a banana equals pancakes?

I’d been eyeing this pin for two ingredient Paleo pancakes for awhile. Seriously? But how do they get fluffy? Well… they don’t. They’re very thin, like a crepe. Which is fine in my book. I love crepes (you heard me Ricky Bobby).

Do you know what Paleo is? It’s short for the Paleolithic diet, which is based on the foods humans ate during the Paleolithic Era (think cavemen). It focuses on naturally raised proteins, vegetables, fruits and nuts (think hunter-gatherer) and eliminates grains, starches, processed sugars and oils (think all of your favorite foods). The Paleo diet and CrossFit tend to go hand-in-hand, so I’ve become more Paleo curious as of late. Just as I see merits in veganism, I see merits in the Paleo diet as well. Continue reading
