Master Cleanse Salad

Some of you may have heard of the Master Cleanse in which you spend a few days up to a few weeks drinking a concoction of water with lemon juice, Grade B maple syrup and cayenne pepper.  Now, I’m not going to go into my thoughts and opinions on cleanses as I feel the validity of any type of “cleanse”…

Pastured Pork Steaks with Paleo Queso

This was one for the record books, folks.  My parents and I went in on a Berkshire hog some time ago, and I had a handful of cuts of meat in my freezer I’ve never tried before. I didn’t know pork could be cut into steaks, but now I do, and so glad for it!  

Blistered Shisito Peppers with Cashew Cream

I’ve started seeing shisito peppers on a lot of menus recently.  So when my husband was at Trader Joe’s and spotted a bag, he picked some up, and I decided to put my own spin on a version we had at a tapas restaurant a few weeks ago.

Here’s what I used:

  • 1 head of organic cauliflower, florets only
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp psyllium husk powder (optional)
  • 2 large eggs
  • a few shakes of salt

Here’s what I did.
