Baked Beet Chips

20150216_223559
Standard

I love beets. This was actually a recent love for me, when I was younger I never had a desire to try them but now that I have I can’t get enough. I made apple chips a little while ago and I decided it would be a good time to try out beet chips as well.

As a note: this recipe makes roughly enough to fill ½ a sandwich size, ziploc bag.

INGREDIENTS

3 – 4 beets
salt for dusting

RECIPE

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper.
Wash beets, peel and slice them to roughly ⅛” thickness, the thicker your slices the longer they will take to cook.
Lay slices flat on baking sheet.
Dust with salt to your liking, I found a light sprinkle worked well for me.
Bake for 1 hour.
Remove from oven and flip slices, dust with additional salt.
Place back in the oven and bake for another 1 – 2 hours.
Remove and let cool.

Towards the end of your baking time you may want to periodically check your beets, ensuring you don’t burn them. These are great with a little dressing or vinaigrette for dipping.

Enjoy!

Paleo Apple Pie

Paleo Apple Pie
Standard

Apple Pie!

It’s one of those famous American treats that we just can’t live without. Unfortunately, traditional Apple Pie has more sugar than apples and more gluten than goodness, which is why Apple Pie was on my Paleo To Do List!

This recipe is sweetened with natural dates and is 100% grain-free and dairy-free. Now there’s an Apple Pie you can indulge in!

INGREDIENTS

4 large red apples, chopped
2/3 of a cup chopped dates
1 and 2/3 of a cup water
2 tablespoons cinnamon

RECIPE

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the apples, dates and water in a large sauté pan and set the temperature gauge to medium heat.

Paleo Apple Pie Filling
Stir and let the apples soften. Once the water evaporates, add a cup of water and the cinnamon. Stir, then cover and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
Pour the mixture into a baked Paleo Pie Crust, using the caramelized dates that tend to line the bottom of the pan to fill in the gaps between the apple pieces.

Paleo Apple Pie Preparation
Top with Paleo Pie Crust crumbles to “seal” the pie.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let the pie cool before slicing.

Tip: Paleo Pie Crust is easier to crumble when chilled. Use un-baked Paleo Pie Crust mixture and refrigerate it for a few hours before crumbling over pies for the best finish.

Enjoy!

Book Review: The Everything Paleo Pregnancy Book by Tarah Chieffi

PaleoPregnancyBook
Standard

For two people that haven’t yet had kids, we weren’t too sure what to expect…plus when the book showed up in the mail, the men in our lives wondered if we were trying to tell them something! Thank you Tarah for the late April Fool’s joke!!

About The Book

What struck us first was how well layed out THE EVERYTHING PALEO PREGNANCY BOOK is. It’s very easy to read and structured to help readers new to Paleo easily navigate the diet. We can only imagine how beneficial this easy to follow structure must be for anyone expecting, or transitioning into a Paleo lifestyle post-pregnancy. What’s more, Tarah covers exactly what to expect during each trimester–trust us…we’ll be reading this book again one day when we actually are pregnant!

One of the unique features of this book is it covers the common symptoms of pregnancy and then provides Paleo-friendly recommendations on how best to tackle them. Tarah also covers supplementary items, such as fitness and postpartum changes.

Included in the book is an easy to follow 28-Day Meal Plan, which features a variety of extremely tasty recipes that anyone would enjoy, pregnant or not. One of the favorites is the Farmers Market Chicken Bake. It’s topped with bacon (who wouldn’t like it!) and it’s definitely hardy enough food to feed both you and your baby.

Here’s Tarah’s Farmers Market Chicken Bake Recipe:

Farmers Market Chicken Bake

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 1-inch cubes
1 golden delicious apple, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 large yellow onion cut into 8 wedges
1 small butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and cut into 1-inch cubes
Half a teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon chopped, fresh thyme
1 tablespoon chopped, fresh sage
1 teaspoon chopped, fresh rosemary
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
6 slices bacon

RECIPE

Heat oven to 450degrees F.
Coat a 13-inch x 9-inch glass baking dish with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil.
Add chicken, apple, onion and squash to baking dish.
Toss with remaining coconut oil and spices until everything is evenly coated.
Lay bacon slices evenly across the top of the dish.
Bake for 50 to 55 minutes until bacon is crispy, chicken is cooked through and vegetables are beginning to brown.


Last but not least, the back of the book contains very useful advice for pregnancy-friendly Paleo food substitutions and other pregnancy-must knows.

It’s no surprise that THE EVERYTHING PALEO PREGNANCY BOOK is a top hit on Amazon and we highly recommend it!
