Tonight's diner......
Bison meat balls with spinach
  • 2 lb ground bison 
  • 1 brick frozen spinach 
  • garlic 
  • onion flakes or whatever you have 
  • a dash of worcestershire sauce 

roll into balls and bake in the oven 350 for 25-30 min

I then added them to a pan on the stove and added a large can of crushed tomatoes
rosemary, Salt and Pepper and a can of Coconut Milk.   mixed all together.   Voila

And faux mashed
(cauliflower mashed)

Large head of cauliflower cut into med pieces and put in a pot to boil
once soft drain water and mash away.   You can also toss it in a food processor, that works great too
I added some butter, garlic and salt and pepper to give it some flavor.

Been a little MIA

The family has had a BUG.  and YUCK!!  YUCK !! YUCK!!

Thankfully almost everyone is on the mend.  With hopes that my daughter will be 100%  ASAP.
I am looking to get the family on an Elderberry extract.   I am hearing amazing things about this stuff.
it even is supposed to help heal from viruses.   It is said to boost the immune system.  and help with all sorts of things.   I am hoping that this can also help my children with their asthma.

It is time to kick it up a notch..   My husband who has been working so many hours is it ridiculous
was talking about his diet in the morning and at lunch..  and was wanting to make it healthier..  so I am going to cook breakfast for the family every morning, pack him a lunch and a morning snack..
Diet is so important.   You need to have the right fuel in your body.  to get it done.

So this morning I made Luke a 4 egg white, 2 egg scramble with peppers, orange and green.
(it was what I had in the house)

For a morning snack  I packed him,  2 hard boiled eggs and a Lara Bar.

For Lunch I made him a Grilled chicken salad.
8 oz of grilled chicken with tons of mixed leafy greens,
jicama,  (see picture) ..  peppers, snap peas
and rice wine vinegar . 

Oh and I also included some almonds for a healthy fat.

Diner last night... Steak!

Yesterday I was looking at some of my favorite Paleo Blogs  and I thought it would be yummy to
make smothered steak...  and it was DELISH
  • Mushrooms - I used 2 packages we love mushrooms
  • Green Peppers - 2 ..  my family loves these..
  • Onion - 1 red onion 
  • olive oil or butter to saute the veggies in 
  • garlic cuz its yummy and a good immune booster.
You want to saute the veggies on a med heat for a while.. cooking them slowly with make them soft
and brown them a bit and that gives them extra yummy flavor.

Cook you steaks on the stove top..
add a dash of salt and pepper to each side and I toss on a splash of Worcestershire sauce

and when done add the veggies to your steak..  and ENJOY!

Mango Salsa




1-1/2 cups diced mango
1 cup red onion, diced
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
Ice water
1 cup diced red bell pepper, roasted and peeled
2 serrano chilies, stemmed, seeded, diced
1 - 2 tsp fresh lime juice
Salt to taste
1 tbsp fresh cilantro


Use firm, but ripe mango. Over-ripe fruits are difficult to dice because they turn to mush.

Put the onion in a shallow dish and cover with vinegar and ice water. Soak for 30 minutes. Strain.

In a glass bowl, gently combine the mango, onions, peppers, and chilies. Season to taste with lime juice, salt, and cilantro. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
