Home made….Almond butter

Ok so homemade almond butter; holy hell this has opened the door for an insane amount of possibilities! Can we say butter blends, can we saw raw cocoa almond butter or macadamia butter with cashews, roasted almonds, roasted any nut…..
All that’s needed:
1. kick-a$$ blender like the vitamix (heaven!) my favorites appliance in the kitchen!

2. Almonds

3. Patience. I’m not good with this but it’s required and the end product is beautiful….so I kept going. From dust to this magical cream that formed after minutes of scraping and rescraping…and minutes more and then finally…..magic.

My Paleo take on Huevos Rancheros

Ok it’s been a while. Tons upon tons I should mention BUT I won’t. Want to know what I have been doing for hours at a time; Paleo. Google it, read every book about it like I have, listen to podcasts while going through hundreds of blogs like I have šŸ™‚ I think it says something when CrossFit enthusiasts, quite arguably the worlds toughest workout, are also Paleo enthusiasts!

Today I bring you a recipe that is paleo friendly!

-Ground chicken or turkey or anything ground and lean
-green pepper diced
-1/2 tomato or more, diced
-cilantro to liking
-roasted jalapeƱo pepper *
-homemade taco seasoning

Fried meat up in some coconut oil, then added Ingredients

To roast jalapeƱo I just just through the pepper on my gas stove, otherwise BBQ or oven!

Then when it was nice and black on all sides, I ran it under water and scraped off black burnt skin

Then I added the jalapeƱo to the mix and let that cook for a bit. Next I frayed half a sweet potato and half a zucchini together…..
Scratch that; I’m outta zucchini so just a sweet potato

Once that’s all cooked to my liking I will add it to the meat mix of heaven, then I will fry up some eggs…
While we are waiting for that to cook, paleo info I would insist that you read Robb Wolf, he is an incredible writer and (I think) the most knowledgable person on the subject, he has lots of scientific info for all you info nuts like me and his writing is hilarious.
Websites. Wow I have a ton won amazing recipes.

Breakfast

I am enjoying my delicious breakfast of oats, almond milk, buckwheat groats, flax seed, blueberries, raspberries, cinnamon, hemp hearts, and a tbsp of natural pb. This is probably the first time in well over a year I’m having something other than yogurt for breakfast, but this meal will give me all the energy I need for my workout in an hour
