Sweet & Smokey Chicken Basil Sausages


Have you ever tried making your own sausages? It’s actually pretty simple, and considering how much crap (literally) is in most store bought sausages, not to mention that most brands contain upwards of 50% fat, it’s nice to have a healthy alternative!  I’ve been dreaming about Jules Clancy’s “Magic Sausage Supper” ever since I saw it over on The Stone Soup’s food blog — if you have never visited this blog before, I highly recommend it – so many goodies! When I first saw this recipe, Cam and I were in the middle of a detox…and no, meat was not on the “allowed foods” list, which is probably why I was drooling over recipes like this! I finally got around to trying her recipe the other day (OMG – so good!). The only real thing I did different, was I decided to make my own sausages instead of using store bought ones, and since they turned out so yummy, I thought I should probably share my recipe with you! These are grain-free, gluten-free, dairy free, egg free, paleo approved and oh, so tasty! Continue reading

Grilled Portobello & Cajun Chicken “Burger”


This “burger” is the ultimate burger because it’s made with 100% pure and natural ingredients. It’s paleo too – so grain free, gluten free, dairy free – basically, none of the bad stuff. No wonder why I don’t miss grains when I’m chowing down on wholesome (and outta-this-world-mouth-wateringly-delicious) food like this!

This recipe is pretty simple, and you can adjust the ingredients to your liking…but this combination of flavors is pretty freakin’ awesome! For a vegetarian option, try adding some grilled haloumi instead of chicken, or if you’re vegan cram with extra grilled veg or your favorite veggie burger! This is super nutritious, high in protein, low in carbs, and nothing but the healthy good fats in this one. I’m gonna make this for lunch way more often! Continue reading

Smoked Balsamic Veggies and Lemon & Chili Chicken Skewers


I woke to one of the most beautiful summer days… not a cloud in the sky. It’s Waitangi Day today, which to me means the day off and the perfect weather for a BBQ feast! The marinades for both the veggies and chicken were superb – the flavors were sooo good! I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but Cam and I ate this entire barbecue feast, as well as some leftover Creamed Cashew Cauliflower Rice (it was delicious served cold!). I will definitely be making both of these again – they were that good.
