Pork Explosion

PRIMALOCITY – I picked up some pork tenderloin at the store the other day.  Mostly, at my local market, when you buy pork, you have to buy a package that contains 2 tenderloins, usually weighing in at over a pound a piece.  One is plenty for a meal for 2-3.  I made a delicious stroganoff with 1…

Winter Warmer: Stroganoff with Cauliflower Mash

PRIMALOCITY – A cold snap has hit St. Louis and frankly I don’t like it.  One way I like to warm up is with a rich, rib sticking, hot saucy dish.  Lat night I through together a quick stroganoff.  Traditionally, Beef Stroganoff is made with filet mignon, a pricey cut of meet that at my local market…

PRIMALOCITY – Well, the Holidays are officially upon us.  You know what that means, food, food and more food.  This can be a particularly challenging time for primal folk.  At home, the office, parties,  we are constantly encountering enticing holiday treats, most of which we shouldn’t or wouldn’t go any where near at any other time of…

Simple and Quick Garam Masala Shrimp and Zucchini

PRIMALOCITY – Living the primal lifestyle can be somewhat daunting at times.  It can be difficult to prepare primally appropriate meals quickly and conveniently.  I am always looking for quick, healthy and delicious dishes.  While I would typically prefer to buy fresh spices and make my own spice mixtures, sometimes it just is faster and easier to…

Herbed Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken and Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon and Caramelized Red Onion Dressing

PRIMALOCITY – Once I find something I like I try different variations.  This is a variation of my recent recipe, Prosciutto and Sage Wrapped Chicken Thighs.  Instead of thighs, I used chicken breast, and then stuffed the breasts with herbed goat cheese and spinach.  The next time I make this I will include roasted red peppers in…

PRIMALOCITY – While available all year long, the herb Sage is one of those flavors that just reminds me of fall.  Its great with roasted meats, vegetables, and of course is a necessity in the kitchen around thanksgiving.  Of course, like most herbs, it also is said to have certain health benefits and healing properties.

Primal Taco Pizza

PRIMALOCITY – If you haven’t already figured it out, I love pizza (I considered it a major food group before going primal) and mexican food.  I have tried many forms of pizza since going primal and liked them all, but this is one of my favorites.  Part of the credit for the success of this recipe has…

I feel really healthy – why do I need to change the way I eat?

PRIMALOCITY – I feel really healthy so I don’t see any reason to change the way I eat.  I hear that from a lot from people who are interested in the lifestyle and diet changes I have made in my life. While these days I don’t need a lot of convincing that the lifestyle and diet changes…

Pretty Primal Chocolate Cheesecake

PRIMALOCITY – So the other day I promised that I would post my recipe for the Chocolate Cheesecake I made the other day.  I warned that this dessert was not perfectly primal and so some of you may pass on this one.  To make it I used Ghiradelli 60% Cacao Chocolate Chips and some stevia (purevia).  This…
