Paleo Pork Wrap with Tomato, Feta, and Spinach

This is how lunch goes very often. What was for dinner last night? Oh yeah. Pork ribs. Do I want that again? …. No. How can I make it taste differently and delicious? And then new little recipes are born! 

 This Paleo Pork wrap is PERFECT for lunch. It's packed with flavor and easy to make.

The key to amazing Paleo recipes is to not be afraid to think outside the box. There’s no reason you have to eat grilled chicken and sweet potatoes every night, although I do that far too often. Because I like it. In this recipe I used local raised pork, local goat cheese (chèvre), organic spinach, and tomatoes from our family garden! It’s so exciting to go outside and pick a few tomatoes. I wrapped it all up in a Paleo Wrap. These wraps are going to be your favorite new staple, if you haven’t tried them already.

Paleo Chocolate Smoothie

I didn’t know whether to call this a smoothie, frosty, milkshake or what? It truly tastes like a frosty, which is sort of a milkshake, but it’s made like a smoothie. So I called it a Paleo Chocolate Smoothie. But either way, it’s heavenly so please make it. This Paleo Chocolate Smoothie is just like dessert!

A lot of my recipes come from the following process. I try something at a restaurant. It tastes amazing. I want to make it at home. I keep making it until it tastes like the first thing I tried. The end. This recipe is similar to a smoothie I got at The Big Squeezy in Baton Rouge. It was called “The Awesomeness”, rightfully. 

The real trick to this recipe is to use a BlendTec blender. It is by far my favorite appliance in my kitchen. Not only can it make any smoothie have the perfect texture, but it also is good for blending soups, ice cream, nut butters, you name it….

Gluten Free Waffle Recipe

MMMM…. Waffles! These Grain and Gluten Free Waffles are the bomb. 
This is the best Grain and Gluten Free Waffle Recipe! Top with your favorite toppings.

 

As a little girl, I got SO excited to use waffle makers. It was one of the only things I knew how to make, even though all I did was pour the mix in and wait for the machine to beep. My parents and grandparents always fostered my interest in cooking, so of course one Christmas my parents bought me a waffle maker. On weekends, I’d make a “menu” and try to serve my family breakfast. I may or may not still do this… Especially on holidays!  : )

The Start of My “Eat, Pray, Love” Summer

I used to write these posts called “A Week in my Paleo Life”, where I’d basically tell you about what food I was eating, what workouts I was doing, and why. I thought they were kinda boring, but I got emails here and there saying they were appreciated. I usually hesitate to post personal things, but this summer I am embarking on my own “Eat, Pray, Love” experience. Or a Happiness project. Or I don’t know, one of those books that means I am opening my eyes to new things and experiences! 

My summers and school breaks are always a time for me to refuel and do things that I really love. My freshman summer, I learned the world of blogging from Laura Fuentes. My sophomore summer, I studied for the MCAT. Now my junior summer, I will be learning how to cook from Chef Robert Vasquez

Chef's Table quote

Day 1:

The Chef told me I should “prepare for bootcamp”. A few of the other workers warned me that he will be nice the first few weeks, and then he’ll expect a lot from me. So to me this meant, I should probably take notes.
