Gluten Free Quinoa & Bison Power Chili

Happy Olympic Kickoff day!  This is a recipe favored by one of team USA's track & field athletes and I can vouch it is quite delicious even if it's not paleo.  (Gasp!)  

We eat mostly paleo for numerous reasons, but I can't claim that this is our diet 100% of the time.  I was recently reading Outside magazine and they did a feature on decathlete Trey Hardee (on a side note, they did a great spread of his training routine and it's very similar to the way we train at our Crossfit gym except for the fact he does it 2-3x a day, 6 days a week), and this was one of his favorite recipes.  

Life is all about balance and I figure if this is the worst thing we eat all week...

Paleo Cucumber Cilantro Gazpacho

I recently came into some produce after the Crossfit Game (an entire box of cucumbers to be correct), and while it may be a fun challenge to see how many cucumber margs we can drink, we are adults and try to have some level of responsibility, so I needed plan B.  

This is a quick, spicy and refreshing summer soup that is even better on day 2.

Easy Paleo Coconut Soup

I posted this picture on my instagram the other day, and I got a few requests to share the recipe.  I wish I could say this was culinary magic but it's really just my go-to when I want something healthy that's fast - and you can stock most of the ingredients in your pantry.

I make this soup ALL THE TIME.  It's a quick open/chop/simmer soup that you can make in about 20 minutes, that's spicy, creamy and satisfying.  It's also really easy to make modifications so feel free to use whatever veggies you have in your fridge.  

If you have an Asian market in your 'hood, please check it out.  You can get all of those great condiments and they usually have great quality fish.  Not to mention it's fun to roam the aisles and see all the weird 'food' items they tend to sell. Quick note about fish sauce - it smells terrible.  Why you ask would you use it in food? Well, it has this magical power to make food taste amazing and rich, even though you may want to gag while you're squirting it in the pot.  You're going to have to trust me on this one.

Primal Grilled Kale Salad with Balsamic Marinated Plums

Happy 4th of July and thank you Bon Appetit for getting me out of my salad slump (I've got another BA salad post for Friday).  I will definitely be making this on the regular, and this would be an easy and flavorful side to any BBQ dish you've got going on for tomorrow.  

This is a primal salad because it does call for a little dollop of ricotta (I used Greek yogurt), but if you left that out it would be paleo.
