12 Fresh Avocado Recipes

12 Fresh Avocado Recipes | GrokGrub.com

Avocados are just one of my favorite food on the planet, no big deal.  It's always the right time to eat avocados, they can hold my interest meal after meal. Equally delicious as guacamole loaded onto plantain chips, sprinkled over baked eggs for breakfast or eaten plain with a spoon as a pre-workout snack, the possibilities are endless! I love discovering new avocado recipes with bold flavor and innovative techniques. Here are just a few of my favorites: Ceviche with Shrimp and Avocado | Very Fond of Food via The Huffington Post First, let me say that Sophie Dahl is Roald Dahl's granddaughter! I can't tell you how many times I read and reread Matilda as a little girl (maybe the cake force-feeding scene subliminally influenced me in the ...

N’Oatmeal Breakfast Bowl

N'oatmeal Breakfast Bowl (grain free, fruit sweetened, dairy free, #vegan, #paleo)

Taking a moment at the end of the day to bring you this sweet little bit of a breakfast recipe/strategy. Sunday is Olympic Lifting day at my Crossfit box, which means one and a half hours of strength, skill and metcon work instead of the usual one. #win Without pausing for a shower(!) I headed north under the Bay for my first visit to the Berkeley gem Mission:Heirloom in time to enjoy grass-fed, organic, chemical-free (auto-immune-compliant) paleo food, conceptualized with playful care and executed with fresh, local, inventive, seasonal ingredients. I sat down in the cafe's edible garden with co-owner Yrmis, Natasha of The Feisty Kitchen and Dr. Jolene Brighten (both Instagram friends turning simply friends) for a luxurious lunch. If Mission:Heirloom is the future of nourishing, ...

Easy Sweet Potato Sausage Layers

Easy Sweet Potato Sausage Layers (grain-free, gluten-free, paleo) | GrokGrub.com

I debated whether to post this recipe here on the blog, as it's really just a "cook this stuff in a skillet and then mix or layer" situation. But! After posting it to Instagram, a few folks piped up that they'd like some specifics to go by, so here's the method to a quick layered dish featuring my favorite things. If you don't have a spiralizer (a pity, because they're so fun!) then feel free to use a potato peeler to make sweet potato curls, or simply roughly chop the sweet potatoes and load them into a food processor. Pulse until finely diced; the look of the sweet potato layer will be different than my spiralized version but no less delicious. 5.0 from 3 reviews Easy Sweet Potato Sausage Layers   Print Prep time 15 mins Cook time 30 mins Total time 45 ...

How to Make a Red Egg

How to Make a Red Egg | GrokGrub.com

Red eggs are a spontaneous invention of mine, and I'm... a tad obsessed. Not only do they add instant color to any meal, the flavor is everything: spicy, salty, savory, smoky.   I eat them solo as a snack, or throw them on top of speedy stir-frys or add them to shirataki noodle bowls packed with veggies and crispy meat when I need to clean out the refrigerator. The recipe below is a simple guideline to get you on your way, so if you prefer tweaks to the spice ratio or different seasonings entirely, be my guest. I added black sesame to the version in this post, but white sesame obviously works just as well. Cayenne pepper could be substituted for the red pepper flakes, or different variations of paprika swapped out, or even adobo could be mixed in. The variations are endless! Red ...

Antioxidant Superfood Muffins (grain free, dairy free, refined sugar free, paleo) | GrokGrub.com

Antioxidant Superfood Muffins

Hello, friend. I must confess: I don’t believe in OMG ANTIOXIDANT SUPERFOODS too much. I believe that some foods are more full than others of the things that make us healthy and happy, yes. These foods come “packaged” in skin and shells and scales, they have roots and rinds, ripeness and rottenness. But! Sometimes it’s such fun…

Walnut Sweet Potato Biscuits and Mushroom Gravy (grain free, gluten free, dairy free, paleo) | GrokGrub.com

Walnut Sweet Potato Biscuits with Mushroom Gravy

Biscuits and gravy is a slight guilty pleasure of mine, probably because my parents wouldn’t let me eat the dish growing up. The white, clumpy, greasy, unidentifiably meaty chunkiness that is traditional Southern biscuits and gravy never darkened the doors of my childhood home. Now there’s a morbid fascination with it that I can’t shake, so today I took…
