Paleo Sushi

Standard

Camilla and I happen to love sushi. So when we went Paleo we ran into a little bit of a problem. No rice…No sushi. Thankfully we managed to figure out an amazing alternative. This is what we like to call Paleo Sushi. Don’t be scared away, this recipe is simple and easy. It’s also Paleo and easily customizable to your taste buds!

INGREDIENTS

1 large cucumber
stuffings of your choice- I used lox, beets and avocado.
optional- coconut aminos and ginger
equipment- a thin knife (preferably a little flexible)

RECIPE

Wash your cucumber.
Cut the ends off your cucumber and cut your cucumber in half.
This is where the tricky part comes in…do your best to hollow out your cucumber. It doesn’t need to be perfect, you just need to be able to stuff if with all your delicious stuffing choices.
It’ll look something like this…

Now stuff the cucumber with your stuffings of choice. As a note, when stuffing it with lox, I found it easier to roll the lox up into a tub shape and then insert it.
After you’ve finished stuffing it’s time to cut it into individual pieces. Cut them to resemble your sushi roll of choice.

Then it’s time to enjoy. Ginger or coconut aminos make the perfect addition to your Paleo Sushi. This is one of those dishes that becomes easier the more times you make it. Not to mention that it packs a ton of nutritious food!

Enjoy!

Paleo Smoked Salmon & Bacon Salad

via https://www.nwwildfoods.com/images/smoked%20salmon%20trio.jpg
Standard

I feel like I have a lot of favorites when I share recipes with all of you, I think it’s because I only like to share the recipes that I know are great and that I thoroughly enjoy. So here we are again with another favorite, however this is a little different because this is hands down my favorite salad recipe.

I came up with it on accident, essentially I had limited ingredients in my fridge and I was having a craving for bacon (who doesn’t right?). Now, I eat this salad regularly because it’s simple to make and it’s filling, which is particularly good for getting me through my afternoon workouts.

You may even notice that I’ve created a wrap based on it in the post Paleo Smoked Salmon wrap, clearly I can’t get enough.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup of kale and shredded brussel sprouts
3 strips of bacon, diced
3 – 4 ounces of smoked salmon
1/2 avocado, sliced
balsamic vinegar (I like to use a dressing that’s slightly thicker)

RECIPE

Place kale and brussel sprouts mixture on plate.
Cover mixture with bacon, smoked salmon, avocado slices.
Dress with desired amount of balsamic vinegar (or dressing of your choice).
That’s it! It’s simple but that’s part of why it’s so perfect. This salad will speak for itself.

Enjoy!

Simple Tuna Wrap

Coconut Paleo Wraps
Standard

I’d always heard about people adding avocado to their tuna instead of mayonnaise. Originally I discarded the thought because the taste combination didn’t seem to work in my head, however with the development of my egg allergy I had to step outside my comfort zone.

I decided to give the avocado and tuna a try but I wanted to spice it up a little and include more flavor. The result was a fresca, guacamole inspired tuna salad that I placed in a coconut wrap. This wrap is delicious, simple to make and relatively inexpensive… it’s a triple threat. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

INGREDIENTS

1 can of tuna
1/2 avocado, sliced
juice of 1 lime
1/2 red onion, diced
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1 – 2 coconut wraps

RECIPE

Drain liquid from the tuna and place tuna in a bowl.
Add avocado, lime juice, red onion and cilantro to bowl.
Mix all ingredients together, mashing occasionally; until desired consistency is reached.
Place tuna mixture into wrap.

It’s that simple. Also, it’s a great option for a picnic or camping, the ingredients are simple enough to transport which means you can bring it with you and make it wherever you are.

Happy Wrapping!
