Homemade Coconut Milk

I finally did it, I said last week to @ThePaleoMom (Twitter link) or ThePaleoMom (Blog) that I was going to try to make her homemade coconut milk.  I am proud to report that I did it. There are a few things to note on this back story on why I did this.  Most people I tell that I was looking forward to making coconut milk would ask me why I wouldn’t just buy it in a...

Paleo Spicy Beef Jerky

Hectic Hectic Hectic.  That is how I would describe these last few days.  Even with everything being hectic I had recorded the first episode of HBO’s Silicon Valley and I had a chance to watch it last night.  I work in IT, more specifically Computer Software design and architecture etc so its pretty safe to say I was looking forward to this show.  I absolutely loved it.  It reminded me alot of Office Space meets...

Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Muffins

It looks like the crazy weeks are just going to continue.  I have been making an effort to find an organic place in South Florida or a trusted one online that I can order Grassfed Beef and Free Range Chicken from.  I tried on #farming #organic and now I tried on #Paleo and #Primal but still no luck.  I had I think 5 people favorite it but that is simple to get a response if...

Banana, Almond Butter, Honey bites!

Today I am bringing you a little snack that I have eaten for years (sub peanut butter instead of almond butter).  For as long as I could remember if I wanted to have a banana I would top it with peanut butter, but as you know peanut butter is a no no with paleo.  So I have modified this slightly and changed out the peanut butter with almond butter.  It actually works out really good...

Well if you have read my previous posts you know that I do not do this professionally and this blog is really a way for me to keep myself honest on choices that I make. With that said I didn’t make a post last week because I have had work functions that did not allow me to eat a good home cooked meal. Normally for the blog I actually write items that I ate the...

Coffee Cake Banana Bread

Wow this bread is incredible, like insane.  I did not come up with this, I grabbed this off a blog I have been following even before I went paleo, its PaleOMG.com.  Julie the owner of the blog is an amazing cook and I also like her stories that she uses to frame them, seems pretty down to earth.  So yes today’s post will include one of my favorite desserts that she makes, I kind of...

Ok ok ok no I did not eat these cookies, I swear!  My son is in VPK and they are having a bake sale to raise some funds.  For those of you that do not know I actually really love baking.  I have been baking ever since I was a kid and I love to make things from scratch.  So I made these and for those that are strict on paleo all the time will...

Vanilla Ice Cream with Coconut Milk

Had a pretty great weekend, it flew right by but was very good.  The only bad thing was moving the clocks forward one hour on Saturday night :(.  So on Saturday we had the usual teeball game with the little guy.  He did really well I am really proud of him on how well he has taken to it.  After teeball we had to go to one of my relatives 95th birthday party its incredible...

Coconut Squares

It was a pretty crazy weekend with everything that was going on, I didn’t get much rest but I did manage to eat clean.  Outside of the hectic weekend it was actually rather enjoyable.  Saturday we had a teeball game and Sunday we had a birthday party but both turned out to be a great deal of fun.  Sunday I lit up the BBQ and grilled everything from shish kabob’s (both chicken and steak) to...
