So when I do this boot camp, I am usually working a job and a half, and more than a little pressed for time. However, this go around, I have some free time. What a blessing. Free. Time. Wow. So this afternoon a good friend who has a HUGE garden generously sent over 2 baskets full of vege tables – what great timing. I got to work this afternoon and made several items:
1. Cauliflower Rice (my 2 girls think it is rice) with onions, zucchini, and peppers – cooked in coconut oil. Click here for a basic recipe that you can try your own twist on.
I served it with mahi mahi.
2. Squash Casserole – paleo style. This was new to me, but I miss my great-aunt’s awesome squash casserole, and I would make this one again. Click here if you want to try it too.
3. Homemade Spaghetti Sauce in crockpot, ready for tomorrow night. Full of tomato chunks and herbs straight from the garden with organic, grass-fed beef. Will serve tomorrow with spaghetti squash (which again my sweet children actually believe is pasta, as long as I hide the squash skin before they enter the kitchen).
Most grocery stores are selling coconut oil now, but Trader Joe’s is the only place I can find it in a spray can – great for eggs/omelets etc.
What new things have you tried or are you going to try this week? Please share!
