Given that we are in the middle of our 1st 30 day challenge at CrossFit Round Rock, I decided to take some time to give everyone some reciepe ideas!! One thing about Paleo that everyone always asks is "So what CAN you eat...GEEEZZE"??! Wellllll....ALOT! Here are two recipes that I really enjoy!!! Get Some!!
3 -4 ripe avocados
4 cans of Trader Joe’s tuna packed in water
3 green onions
3 celery stalks (I don't care for celery so I don't add it)
1 palm full of dried dill (I like the fresh dill from whole foods in the bulk isle)
1 tbsp garlic powder
fresh ground black pepper to taste
grape tomatoes halved
1 cup of Olive Oil Mayo- 1egg, 1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, pinch of sea salt, few shakes of cayenne pepper, 1 tsp yellow mustard, 1 cup olive oil. It's great having extra of this too, there are a lot of paleo dressing recipes that call for this mayo that are awesome!
Cut avocados in half lengthwise and remove the stone – leave the peel on. In a large mixing bowl mix together the tuna, celery, onions, and spices. In a food processor process for 5 seconds the egg, vinegar, mustard, cayenne pepper, and sea salt. For another 5 seconds of blending slowly add the olive oil until it makes mayo.
Add the mayo mixture to the tuna, mix well, and scoop onto halved avocados and top with tomatoes.
This recipe yields TWO meals.
•24 g walnuts
•24 g Pecans
•2 tbsp Flaxseed Ground
•1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
•1/4 tsp Ginger, Ground
•1 tbsp Almond Butter
•1 small banana (100g)
•3 Omega-3 eggs
•1/4 cup Organic Light Coconut Milk
•1 tsp Pumpkin Seeds
Add walnuts, pecans, flax seed and spices to a food processor and pulse it down to a course grain, making sure to stop before it’s totally ground into a powder. Set aside.
Whisk together eggs and coconut milk until the consistency thickens a little bit into a loose custard. Thoroughly blend together the mashed banana and almond butter and add it to the custard, mixing well.
Stir in the nut mixture. Microwave or gently warm on the stove until the “no-atmeal” reaches your desired consistency; this should only take a few minutes. In both cases, stir the mixture frequently as it cooks.
Sprinkle pumpkin seeds and berries on top.
PREPARE TO BE IN HEAVEN!!!
