Paleo Braised Celery Root

I love celery root, and you don't often see too many articles in fancy food magazines about it, but this was my lucky day! Bon Appetit ran a story on chef Rene Redzepi and his way of pot-roasting celery root.  I usually roast mine, mash them, or make chips with truffle salt on them, but this way is easy (no peeling!) and delicious.

Save the Date! Paleo Night @ Matchbox Palm Springs

Chef Michael Estrada over at Matchbox usually hold his paleo nights on Wednesdays, but I'm so glad he's game for a Friday night so that those of us that might not be local can come!  If you're in or near the area I definitely suggest checking it out - amazing food, great atmosphere, and if you've never been to the desert in the spring you're in for a treat, it's absolutely gorgeous!

I'll be posting the menu once it's finalized, hope to see you there!

Primal/Gluten Free Baby Shower

I recently helped out with a baby shower for my sister-in-law, and while there would only be 2 paleo eaters - and coincidentally both crossfitters - in attendance (myself and the fabulous lady that took these pictures ) I still wanted a menu that stayed true to the I way cook/eat/live.  There was no mention of the party having a 'restrictive' menu of any kind, and there was no talk about missing this ingredient or that dish - it's just food people.  

I made a couple salads, a primal 'quiche' with sweet potato crust, some gluten free savory scones, and some grilled asparagus.   I think everyone had a full belly to welcome baby boy #2 to the Flynn family. 

More pictures and basic recipes after the jump!

Paleo Crunchy Almond Italian Chicken

I was inspired by a recipe in a magazine where they make a dish similar to this, and serve it with grilled whole hearts of romaine.  The presentation looks fantastic - but I made this on a busy weeknight and forgot to get romaine, and this was a post workout dinner so there's a sense of urgency that doesn't allow for a quick trip to the store. 

After the jump - the recipe...
