First off, I have to say how sorry I am about slackin’ hard in the blog post department! Life gets so crazy sometimes, and important things get put on the back burner.

I think this recipe and the next (paleo portobello mushroom burger) will make up for my slacking! So, here we go.

I’m actually quite enjoying typing this out on my new bluetooth iPad keyboard. Now I can sit on the couch and watch shows while I post new recipes. No more excuses Tara! Today its Kitchen Nightmares. Man, these restaurant owners are unbelievable.

Now, onto the most important part… food!

The measurements I am giving here are based on one serving of salad, but the dressing makes enough for 3+ servings, so increase measurements for salad and dressing as needed.

Salad

Ingredients:

2 cups organic field greens and/or spinach
1 small tomato
1/4 cucumber
1 small avocado
2 tbsp red onion
3 slices bacon
1 small chicken breast

Directions:

Bake or fry your chicken breast until fully cooked. Fry bacon, dry on paper towel, crumble and set aside.

Chop tomato, cucumber, red onion and avocado as well as cooked chicken.

Fill large bowl with greens, chopped vegetables, chicken and crumbled bacon.

Dressing

Ingredients:

2 tbsp olive oil
Juice of 1 medium lemon
1 tbsp organic gluten free mustard
1 tbsp honey (unpasteurized)
salt

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a small blender or food processor and blend until fully mixed. You can also use a small whisk in a bowl.

Pour as much dressing as you like over the salad and serve!

Can you tell I like bacon? I make this recipe at least once a week. It is great as a main dish or a side dish!

2 tbsp diced red onion
1/2 garlic clove, minced
6 pieces cooked/crumbled bacon (as natural as you can find, preferably sugar free)
1 tbsp olive oil
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper

Directions:

Fill large bowl with field greens. Add diced tomato, avocado, red onion, garlic, and bacon bits. Mix together lemon juice, olive oil and salt/pepper. Pour over salad right before serving.

This recipe is up there on the favourites list! I will definitely be making this on a regular basis.

The first time I made it with ground beef. Tonight I’m going to make it with ground moose meat and next time I’ll try it with chicken!

This recipe makes 1 serving, so double or triple it if you want to make more!

Ingredients:

2-3 cups lettuce, cleaned and chopped
1 tomato, chopped
2-3 tbsp red onion, diced
1 cup ground beef
1 tbsp homemade taco seasoning
1 batch guacamole

Guacamole:
1 large or 2 small avocados
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 garlic clove, minced finely
Salt and pepper

Directions:

Fry ground beef until done. Add taco seasoning and keep frying and stirring until everything is mixed in.

Mix all guacamole ingredients in a bowl until smooth.

Layer plate or bowl with lettuce, chopped tomato and red onion, seasoned beef and as much guacamole as you like. Mix everything together and enjoy! The guacamole ends up being the dressing. Mmmm mmm!
