I am thinking this “What I made last month” might become a regular thing. There are just so many other great ideas out there that I just have to share them! As you might recall, my family are picky eater, so I find it quite remarkable when there is something new I decide to make and everyone loves it. So here are my picks for February.
Let me start with breakfast. First, let me say that if you haven’t bought Danielle Walker’s cookbook, you should. She is a Paleo genius. I have learned so much for her! I honestly can’t believe that I have completely committed to eating Paleo for 7 months now! Well, yes I can. I feel great, and I have lost 20 pounds! But to be honest, it is a HUGE commitment. Danielle’s Against All Grain Cookbook has really been a lifesaver. The first thing I tried in her book was her Blueberry Waffles. I couldn’t believe that they were going to taste like the “real deal” as she claimed. Holy Cow!! They really are. The pic below links to her page. Check her out, she is fabulous. And so are her waffles!
Now for dinner, one of our new absolute favorites is an idea from Sarah from Everyday Paleo. She has a wonderful Pulled Pork Tostones. Plantains were one of those things I didn’t think I liked, same category as spaghetti squash, cauliflower, and sweet potatoes. But wow, they are yummy.
Last but my personal favorite, is dessert. During a Pinterest visit, I stumbled upon Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream!!! Seriously! After getting an ice cream attachment for my Kitchen Aid, I had to make it instantly. I am not a super fan of coconut ice cream, so I went ahead and split the coconut milk with half almond milk. Let’s just say that Evan (my 4 yr old) and I finished it in only 3 days! We seriously couldn’t get enough. And I couldn’t believe how easy it was. Doesn’t it look delicious??
