Paleo-Friendly Meals: Filipino Adobo Style Bok Choy
I absolutely love Filipino food – it’s so savory and delicious. When I was young, my Lola (grandma) watched me everyday and cooked chicken adobo at least once a week. The smells coming from the kitchen were intoxicating and drew me in – cartoon style, feet floating and nose following the visible aroma. I always look forward to chicken adobo over rice on the kitchen table. These days I’m avoiding rice but the flavors of Filipino adobo are so versatile they can be added to almost anything. In this case, I’ll share with you the wonders of Filipino adobo style bok choy!

If you don’t have one, fret not, an immersion blender or a good old-fashioned blender will do the trick. Read on for the back-story on this deliciousness! (more…)
Primal-Friendly Meals: Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers
Hello, hello and welcome to the work week! I apologize for my hiatus, but I have been dealing with a lot of things, mainly how to handle stress and juggle about a million tasks at once. I know, welcome to life – no need to complain because I am preaching to the choir. I also just picked up a second job, but I’ll get to that in another post. ANYWAY, what follows is a recipe I created after salivating over the fanciness of Whole Foods. (more…)
