A SPIN ON MOM’S HOME COOKING from For the Love of Paleo

I truly love hearty homemade meals.  The thing I hate is refined foods and the fact that hearty meals generally look like something that was quickly thrown together in a cafeteria line up.  What I’ve done is made a regular ass meal and made it a little more visually appealing if you want to really impress your dinner guests.

I hope you didn’t think I was gonna just talk about the food and not go on a longwinded rant about nothing.  First of all, I have a confession… I’m on day 13 of Whole30 right now.  Myself and a friend of mine wanted to see if we could do it on the DL.  THE ONLY PROBLEMMMMM, is that I haven’t written a post in over a week cause I’m eating like an actual caveman and you guys don’t wanna see this shit.  I’ve already gone through 2 jars of homemade mayo cause I just put it on everything.  I pan fried leftover sweet potatoes for breakfast this morning and put mayo on top.  Words can’t even explain how weird my eating habits are when I’m on Whole30.

The other thing, relating to Whole30 ish… I got a tattoo last night and I was under the needle for like 2 and a half hours and I was so exhausted from the pain on my ribcage that I stopped at Moxie’s restaurant on Bourbon Street to take a breather.  I looked at the whole menu and obviously there was nothing I could eat.  So I sat at the bar alone and drank a glass of water and then left.  If you want people to think you’re an asshole, go to a restaurant and order water.  I NEEDED THIS OKAY.





Zucchini, thinly sliced using a mandolin and cut into circles using a food mould.  I spread some truffle oil and sea salt over it and roasted it uncovered for 10 minutes.

Spiralized carrots with garlic powder and salt.  Microwaved for 30 seconds to make it soft.

Free run chicken thighs, roasted with cumin, chilli powder and salt.

Drizzled with balsamic reduction.

Garnished with fresh basil and broccoli sprouts.
