When you need one more dish to add to your menu, choose this Paleo Cucumber Salad. It’s quick and simple and only requires a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
There is a large population of Polish people who have been living in Chicago (and the surrounding suburbs) for many generations. Having a thriving community here in Chicago, you’ll find several Polish grocery stores and delicatessens available. But only if you look for them.
When I decided on a traditional Polish theme for Christmas and added this Polish Sausage and Cabbage Stew to the menu, I set out to find a local Polish deli to source the ingredients.
Beets are not a winter vegetable. They are available year round and are best from June through October.
That, however, didn’t stop me from serving this Marinated Beet Salad as an appetizer at our traditional Polish paleo Christmas dinner.
It’s still snowing and cold here in Chicago. Even though I prepared and served this paleo soup on Christmas day for our traditional Polish themed paleo Christmas dinner, you can now enjoy this recipe anytime. And if it happens to be cold where you live, you can warm up from the inside out.
When’s the last time you visited your local library? If it’s been a while, I bet you’d never guess the kinds of things you’ll find available for checkout including this pan to make a paleo bundt cake!
I host dinner on Christmas day every year. Each year I pick a theme and explore the cuisine of a different country. This year my theme was Polish food.
Sometimes you just need to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to your dish. That’s when you should turn to this Lemon Pepper Green Sauce.
Store bought sauces and condiments are typically packed with sugar and processed oils. When you make homemade versions of things like salsa, salad dressing, aioli and sauces – like this green sauce – you’re able to control all the ingredients.
Tuna salad is the quintessential deli food however when you make it at home you control the ingredients.
This very simple paleo tuna salad adds two doses of fat you may not find in the deli version of tuna salad; avocado and paleo mayo (made using avocado oil).
With the odd ball list of ingredients I’m currently avoiding, pecans and cranberries are on the “green” for go list!
Aside from fresh fruit, chocolate is my typical go-to dessert and cocoa is on the “red” for no list. So, naturally I had to make a paleo cookie using pecans and cranberries. :)
The sweetness of this raw crust pairs well with the more muted pumpkin filling in this paleo chocolate tart.
The use of a food processor makes this dessert go super quick.
