Paleo-Friendly Meals: Chevy’s Salsa (PERFECTION)
Sometimes, it’s a sad, sad day living in Central New Jersey. Why? NO CHEVY’s for MILES. NOT ONE. The last time I ate at a Chevy’s was in Orlando, Florida. What’s so special about Chevy’s? Aside from their BOSS steak taco salad and chicken flautas, Chevy’s has the absolute best salsa I’ve ever tasted. I’m not sure if it’s the smokey spice or how deliciously cold it’s served, but at the end of the day it’s FREAKING DELICIOUS. When I came across this recipe I actually squealed with happiness. Read on for the recipe!
Paleo-Friendly Meals: Sausage and Egg Muffins
Let’s be honest. Most mornings look like this: get up late, jump in the shower, do half your makeup, throw on clothes, and run out the door. Then what? Stop at Starbucks and order a coffee and a bagel or breakfast sandwich. Why? Because it’s quick and easy. Who has time to actually get up early and make breakfast? That’s definitely not me. So in an effort to straighten out this Paleo lifestyle, I began prepping weekday breakfast on Sunday! Read on for the recipe. (more…)

Paleo-Friendly Meals: Buffalo Chicken Thighs
Happy Wednesday! Today, I have a recipe sure to please any buffalo chicken fan. Since going Paleo, there’s one thing I crave and rarely eat on cheat days – buffalo wings! Arguably, real buffalo chicken wings are Paleo – assuming they are not breaded before frying. Boneless buffalo wings from Applebee’s was my guilty pleasure and the real deal chicken wing doesn’t come close. Something about the crispiness of the breading mixed with the thick sauce makes my mouth water. So to supplement my crunchy-saucy cravings, I came up with these buffalo chicken thighs!
