First, Happy Father’s Day! This is Mr. Bejelly’s first Father’s Day so I’m planning on spoiling him with lots of bacon for breakfast, chili verde for lunch and 2 hours of uninterrupted gaming time on his xbox 360.
Finally, Summer has decided to grace us here in the Pacific Northwest and I don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. This week’s recipe roundup focuses on quick and easy paleo dinners so I can spend the maximum amount of time soaking up the sunshine and remembering why I choose to live in the eternally soggy land known as Portland.
Paleo Citrus-Glazed Chicken Tenders
Spaghetti Squash with Bacon and Garlic. Note the quickest way to cook spaghetti squash is to steam but here are some other methods.
Pan-Fried Pork Chops with Parsley Butter
Catfish Fingers with Tarter Sauce
5-Minute Prep Crispy Honey Pork Tenderloin
20-Minute Shrimp & Sausage Skillet
Honey Sesame Seared Salmon Recipe
Naked Chicken Piccata with Picholine Olives
I hope that you find a quick and easy dinner that becomes a family favorite.
all these sounds yummy!
Sounds like a yummy meal plan!
It all looks good. I may need to move to Portland, neighbor. LOL!
Jake went to Famous Dave’s today and wanted to order catfish, but they took it off the menu.
Oh, I hate when a restaurant changes the menu and removes the one thing you love!
How difficult was it for you to transition to this diet?
I removed all grains except for sourdough for a few weeks because I felt terrible and the sourdough was enough to give my body the carbs I was used to. You body essentially goes from using carbs as fuel to using fat. It wasn’t hard because I was suffering from pre-diabetes, anxiety and depression. These cleared up immediately after I went on the diet so it was worth it to me to be strict on it.
So … no grains at all? Hmmmmm…. gonna have to think about this. I know it would be good for me (PCOS) but just not sure about the committment to changing over.
I have PCOS too and this diet really helped bring my body back into balance. I wrote a post about it too – http://agirlworthsaving.net/2012/04/pcos-fertiltiy-and-the-primal-diet.html
Wonderful ideas! My mom would LOVE the catfish fingers.
Oh yum and Happy First Father’s Day!
Thank you for the link love! I hope everyone enjoys the chicken fries recipe 😀
You’re welcome. I was excited to find a recipe that uses sesame flour since I have a nut allergy 🙂
Spaghetti Squash with garlic and bacon looks amazing! I may have to add this to my meal plan this week!!
I didn’t realize bacon could be included. Could you send me recipes? I am starting it tomorrow for my ROTC training and this would go great with my workouts. Plus I want to be healthier. Thanks much 😀
