Roast Chicken and Paleo Honey Roasted Carrots. The chicken is a Pioneer Woman recipe, so there’s butter. However, it doesn’t have the other Southern staples (cheese, cream of whatever, etc.), so you’re fine. It was incredible, super easy and cheap! Including the carrots, this meal cost under $7. It fed two adults dinner and lunch the next day.

Thai Red Vegetable Curry. Used more carrots than recipe. The lime juice really sets off the curry flavor. Fast hearty vegetarian dinner. It makes a ton.



Leftover Thai Red Vegetable Curry.


Thai Chicken and Mango Fried Rice using coconut oil not duck fat. Used 2 cups of mango (about 1.25 red mangoes) and left half the seeds in the jalapeno for a bit more kick. Ideal summer dinner with the bright flavors but still filling.



Chorizo lettuce wraps. Sprouts beef chorizo in romaine lettuce leaves with green onion, chopped jalapeno, sliced radishes, black olives, cilantro, grape tomatoes, etc. (including extra mango not used in fried rice). Use the big leaves to make your “tacos” and the small ones to make “nachos.”
