Tripp to Health
Our adventures in healthy eating.
Hi Everyone! I haven't posted a recipe in a while, so I figured I should get with the program! Last night for dinner, I made an awesome Paleo Chili! I found the recipe at fastpaleo.com. I used most of the same ingredients that they used, but I made it in my crockpot instead of on the stove! If you are looking for a meal that is super easy, and you can prep it early in the day, and have dinner ready to roll when you get home, than this is a great one for you! It was super tasty too!!
Here's what I did...Continue reading
Happy Spring! I know for all of your Chicago Folks, we just had snow a few days ago, but walking around outside today officially feels like spring! And what better to do in the spring than BBQ!!!
This past weekend, Jared and I grilled out with some friends. This is not only great on the budget (so much cheaper than meeting friends out for dinner!), but it’s delicious too!!
Here is what we had, plus a bonus list of my TOP 10 veggies for grilling!Continue reading
So I’ve had an acorn squash sitting around for a while, and I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with it. I used to always bake it and then put butter and brown sugar in it. I admit, this was delicious, but I’ve been trying hard to avoid adding sugar to things! So I found this recipe on www.stupideasypaleo.com and it was Awesome!!!Continue reading
Do you get tired of that boring bowl of cereal for breakfast? Think it is impossible for you to make something that tastes good in the morning? Time to think again. Making a healthy, delicious breakfast is achievable, and you can do it yourself! Here is what I used this morning (serves 2):Continue reading
That's Right- 1 blog post, 2 recipes! Get excited!!
It's always great when you can cook something and use it for multiple meals. That"s what I did today. I started by boiling 4.5 lbs of chicken quarters. This was 5 leg/thigh pieces. I just placed them in a large pot and covered with water, some salt, and about a TBSP apple cider vinegar to help pull some nutrients out of the bones. I brought it to a boil then covered and turned to a simmer and cooked for 90 minutes. Save the chicken stock you just created for the second recipe!
At lunch time the other day I was trying to figure out what to make for dinner. I was in the mood for some Mexican food. I figured if I used the crockpot, dinner would be easy! So I grabbed the following:
Dr. Tripp and I had an amazing weekend getaway with her parents in Union Pier, Michigan. We visited a few wineries, as well as Greenbush Brewing Company in Sawyer, MI (great food and craft beers for those of you of age). We also stumbled upon the Ice Festival in St. Joseph, MI, which had some incredible ice sculptors (check out the crazy pic!). We even got to cross country ski on the beach. I had no idea that was even an option in life! I felt like I was in a snow globe wonderland. Also enjoyed some Olympic action….GO USA!Continue reading
So, Dr. Tripp asked me to write a blog for her today. I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about at first, then I decided I’d write about what I made her for dinner. We had a ton of cilantro left over in the fridge from the Super Bowl, so I figured I better make something with it. I decided to make a cilantro lime sauce. It was actually pretty easy.Continue reading
Those of you who have been following along know that my boyfriend Jared and I have been participating in a Paleo Challenge for the past 5+ weeks. This involves eating veggies, meats, and cutting out grains and processed carbs. One of the foods I miss most (and used to cheat when before this when I was eating about 80-90% paleo) was pizza! But have no fear, there are a few different ways to do Pizza the paleo way! The one I’m going to share with you today is a recipe for MEATZA!!! Yes that’s right- instead of a traditional Pizza Crust, you make your own crust out of meat!! It is AWESOME!!
Here’s how we did it!
Last weekend, Jared and I made a turkey dinner for my parents! My mom had bought a turkey, but was afraid that she was going to screw it up. Jared has done such a good job Thanksgivings past, that she asked us to cook it!
Here’s what we did!Continue reading
Can I just say, that I love having a boyfriend that can cook. It is pretty much the greatest thing ever to come home to an awesome dinner of meat and vegetables! Jared has jumped on board so much, that he is even looking up paleo recipes on his own to avoid adding extra sauces that he’d usually cook with knowing that they are not on the approved list!
So what does a dinner look like? Well pretty much like I said above, meat and vegetables- and if you are still hungry more vegetables!
Here’s what he made us the other night!Continue reading
