    This is my girls’ favourite…

    Banana Pancakes:
    One Banana, One Egg, One scoop of Almond Butter.
    Mash and mix then fry on an oiled pan. Serves one person.

      I love this one too.
      Have also made it with pure pumpkin, and usually add flax seed. It’s a great alternative when you need to pack a lunch/snack. For me, I make one of these when I go golfing, as an alternative to sandwiches. It’s good cold; just cut it up and it’s easy to eat with your fingers.

      I just had these today, I love them! This time I tried sprinkling a little pinch of cinnamon on them right after I poured the batter in the pan, it was a great addition to the recipe!

    “Sausage Stir-Fry breakfast”
    ~ Olive Oil
    ~ Diced onions
    ~ 2 Sausage (skins removed and sliced)
    ~ Spinach
    ~ 2 Eggs

    Add olive oil, onions and sausage to the pan. Cook until sausage is browned and onions soft. Add the spinach (I used about 2-3 handfuls). Cover and cook until the spinach is wilted/soft. Add two eggs on top, and cook.

    The original recipe is in the “The Paleo Solutions” book; however, I didn’t follow the precise amounts or steps, and I make it more like an omelette. (It suggests serving with 1-2 eggs over easy)

    Most days breakfast for me is an Omelette with crumbled bacon, peppers and mushroom…. but when I have spinach/sausage on hand; this is now my favorite!!! It’s really good without eggs too, on days when I have run out of eggs.

    This recipe was inspired from a website that I found last week, but I don’t like following recipes so I made up mu own. It is soooo yummy! I call it shrimp and scallop fresh summer salad!

    Cook the shrimps and scallops in butter, garlic, salt and pepper then rinse them in cold water.

    In the mean time, chop up some avocados, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, red onions and brocoli (feel free to add/change to the selection)

    Mix in some Olive oil, fresh lime juice, grated lime zest and cilantro.

    Toss everything around and enjoy! It is event better the day after when it has stayed in the fridge overnight!

    Wow… I am super hungry for some reason right now!

    One of my favorite recipes is for a pizza crust:

    for one serving :

    1/2 cup almond flour
    1 egg
    1 tsp olive oil
    pinch of salt
    1/2 tsp dried basil
    1/2 tsp dried oregano
    1/4 tsp dried thyme
    1 clove of pressed garlic (optional)

    The mixture will be like a paste… Spread it thinly on a piece of parchment paper to a 15 to 20 inch diameter. Add toppings of your choice and bake for 18 to 20 minutes at 325.

    Great idea Kevin! Thanks for sharing your recipes guys and gals 🙂 Keep ’em coming!

    Here’s my call for help. There is less than 2 weeks before the move of the gym. That means this weekend and next are the last opportunities to get the work done. If anyone can spare some time today, please drop by. Thank you in advance.

    Relaxing Sunday workout:
    WUx1
    OHS 45×10-65×10-75×3-80F-80F

    Practiced Ring Dips: got my 1st strict RD then did 3 in a row before leaving the gym!

    Practiced Wallballs: #14 @ 9′ – still suck at hitting the wall, but did get 5 in a row that counted. 🙂

    I love Sunday open gyms. Thanks Marc for opening up the gym today!

    1 egg

    Going to try to Paleo Breakfast bars – bought all the ingredients today but forgot one! >:( Patrick tried one of Heather’s, and he said they’re delicious so here’s the recipe:
    ——————-
    Paleo Breakfast bars
    Preheat oven to 350.
    1c almond butter
    1c natural honey
    Mix together in heated saucepan

    1c sunflower seeds
    1c raisins
    1c chopped pecans
    1c unsweetened coconut
    Mix together in bowl

    Mix wet and dry together. Put in casserole dish and press flat.
    Bake 20min.

    The other night I was going to make a beef & broccoli and I decided to look online to see if there was a paleo version of it and sure enough, there was. It was good!
    —————-
    Beef sirloin
    24oz broccoli florets
    2 cloves garlic
    2TB lemon juice
    4 tsp olive oil
    1/2 cup organic chicken broth
    1 tsp arrowroot starch
    —————-
    I omitted the starch because I didn’t want to bother looking for it. The starch thickens it so my sauce was quite thin. I liked it anyway.

    Also next up on my list of things to make are paleo mayo, guacamole, and crackers. I can’t vouch for them because I haven’t tried them yet. 🙂

      Amanda, I have made the breakfast bars several times and really enjoy them. They are perfect for when you just need a little something sweet. I’m going to try your muffin recipe. Thanks!

  13. Patrick

    my favorite is not really a recipe. It’s just eggs and ham. Almost every single morning. Yummmmmmm. Sometimes I’ll add fruit.

  14. Jeff

    If you haven’t seen the new gym yet you really need to drop by.
    It’s looking better and better every day! Can’t wait!

    Here is one I just tried the other day. A nice recipe for summer!

    Paleo Mint, Tomato and Mango Salsa

    1 mango, peeled, seeded, and diced
    1/2 cup peeled red onion
    1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
    1/2 cup fresh diced mint
    1 tablespoon pureed chipotle
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
    1 tsp sea salt to taste
    1 tsp black pepper or cayenne pepper to taste
    1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic

    Prepare
    Mix ingredients in bowl.
    Season to taste.
    Refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes
    Serve as side dish, or scrambed eggs or over favorite meat recipe.
    Paleo Sauce Recipe

    Another thing I’ve been doing is cauliflower rice! I love it. Have been using it for curry and stir fry. It gives the exact same texture as rice and takes on the flavor of whatever you are serving it with. I just grate it or chop fine, steam it a little to make it softer, a little olive oil and garlic.

    Great idea Kevin!
