Paleo N’orridge (primal, keto, whole30, vegan, grain-free)

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me post (several times) various incarnation of my current favourite breakfast: my own creation of Paleo N’orridge. I even posted the recipe there a while back, but now want to share it here. What’s n’orridge you ask? A breakfast food that resembles porridge – the hot, stodgy, breakfast cereal I used to eat topped with brown sugar and milk – but made from different, paleo-friendly, gut-friendly and lower glycemic ingredients. Hence the use of ‘n.’

What I Eat (Wednesday)

It’s Wednesday, let’s talk food. Let’s talk about what I eat on a weekend day, following the paleo diet. Why emphasise weekend? Because it’s slower, and my eating patterns change from 3 meals a day during the week, to about 2 on the weekend.

No link ups, no shout outs, just me talking paleo food…. something I can do all day long.

Breakfast

On the weekend, I like to space out my breakfast. When I first wake up, I want bulletproof coffee, but if I drink just that, I feel weird. Despite loving the taste of a bulletproof coffee made with a double shot of espresso, 2 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp butter and a heaped teaspoon of xylitol for sweetness, my body says “Feed me Seymour Danielle!”

{Recipe Redo} Nutter Bombs

You read it: Recipe Redo. When you create and then make a recipe week in, week out, things change over time. I changed this recipe to save time. In the past, I would make these crunchy and rich Nutter Bombs twice a week, which in retrospect was a hassle. I thought I was busy then, but joinin a new running club that is in a town 20 minutes away, being stretched thin at work, doing home projects in our house and finally taking on some free lance writing work (more about that in time), has left me with precious little time. My solutuion is to make the same recipes, but bigger!

These Nutter Bombs are a delicious but simple addition to my breakfast and to Pat’s nightly dessert. They combine creamy and crunchy textures, and are full of nutritious plain nuts and seeds, another great way to get some good fats into your diet.

{Recipe} Asian Cauliflower Rice + giveaway winner

Welcome to Recipe Week at Eat Primal, Run Hard! This week, I’m posting all the recipes that have been accumulating in my head and phone photo gallery. This week, you will have more primal options to add to your arsenal!

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know that my daily breakfast always includes one egg + vegetables. Sometimes, this has been in the form of my Whenever Quiche; other times it’s been stewed Italian vegetables + a fried egg. Lately, I’ve been making a vegetable dish that’s more Asian-inspired, one that’s reminiscent of my childhood. You see, when I was growing up, my mom made plenty of stir-fries. Apparently, the first time I tried a stir-fry, made with tofu, I loved it so much I took the bowl it was in and tipped it over my head, to get every last bite. Although I don’t make stir-fries nearly as often – basically because I forget – when I do, it always reminds me of my childhood.

This specific Cauliflower Rice recipe is part stir-fry, part Asian and a whole lotta delicious! It’s very quick and versatile: it can be eaten hot or cold, and as part of every meal, and can be made with all sorts of vegetables. Add a protein to it, and it is a meal! This is also another fantastic way to get in your veggies at every meal. As some paleo people say ‘More veggies than a vegetarian!’

This dish is also one that is great to make for a weekend meal prep. I make us a huge batch: I eat it as part of my breakfast, while Pat eats it after work, with some protein of his choice. It only lasts four days in our house, not because it goes bad quickly, but because we eat it up!
