Recipe - Kale Chips

We love kale chips.  They're, in my opinion, a delicious way to get your greens.  Even our four year old requests them.  All.the.time.

You'll need:
1 bunch of kale
A handful of avocado or coconut oil
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Chili Powder

Preheat your oven to 400*F.

Tear your kale off of the stalks and into small pieces.  Place onto a baking sheet.

I'm terrible at measuring, so I just pour some avocado or coconut oil into the palm of my hand and rub it on the kale.  Really massage the greens to make sure they're all covered in oily goodness.

Mix the salt and chili powder together, sprinkle over kale and rub with your hands again.

Bake for approximately 12 minutes or until crispy.

Whole30 Day by Day. Day 2

This morning we had scrambled eggs, bacon and kale sauteed in a touch of coconut oil.  I love eggs in general and would probably eat them for every meal if I could.  We made a mad dash out the door to get to baseball.

And left early to avoid the pizza lunch that was being served and stopped at the market to pick up a special piece of meat for dinner.  Came home to have leftover grass fed burgers with raw peppers and cucumbers and a side of homemade guacamole.

I'll generally always try to cook up some extra meat to have for lunch the next day.

For dinner, crispy roasted pork belly and braised cabbage.  The house smells incredible.  There are few words to describe how delicious this is.

Whole30 Day by Day. Day 1

When I first discovered the Whole30 and Whole9 I searched everywhere for blogs that chronicled their entire Whole30, so I really thought it would be helpful if I were to chronicle my Whole30 every day.

Breakfast was some scrambled eggs, bacon and some leftover coconut almond green beans from Well Fed  And a cup of black coffee, of course.

Next up for lunch were some paleo salmon cakes, mixed greens, cucumbers and tomatoes.  The salmon cakes were quite easy to make; canned salmon mixed with some sweet potatoes, dill, coconut flour and eggs to bind everything today.  You can easily make paleo or whole30 compliant fish cakes using different kinds of fish.  I've done these with tuna before and they were quite tasty.

 And for dinner black kale and a grass fed burger topped with guacamole, a fried egg and hot sauce.

This evening it'll be a nice cup of herbal tea to end a day of eating clean. Day 2 can be seen here
