Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

The temperatures have been warm in the Washington, D.C. area leading to an early start to the grilling season. Last night I took advantage of the weather by grilling chicken and making homemade Caesar salad dressing! I also felt inspired after reading an article by Dr. Cate on how bad bottled salad dressing is for you (even if  it says organic or all natural). The reason that bottled dressings may not be the best is that they may not be made from healthy oils. Why wouldn’t they use 100% olive oil? Mainly to keep the cost down –  instead of using 100% extra virgin olive oil, manufacturers add soybean or sunflower oil.  Since I already go out of my way to avoid vegetable oils, making Caesar dressing from scratch and using 100% extra virgin olive oil makes it healthier and tastier! I recommend Kasandrinos EVOO Here are some images and the recipe that I used to make this delicious and easy salad! Start off with raw chicken breast, season with salt and pepper. Chop up two or more heads of Romaine Hearts. Prepare the Caesar salad dressing. 3 cloves garlic 4 anchovy fillets (optional) 1 teaspoon Real Salt 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 2 large egg yolks 1/2 cup E.V. olive oil Take garlic press and mash the garlic into a bowl. Add the salt and mash into a fine paste. This also can been done a cutting board with the side of your chef’s knife. Add egg yolks, Dijon, anchovies, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Whisk everything together. Slowly add the olive oil while whisking, until dressing becomes thick. You can also do this in a food processor; but, be careful not to over mix the dressing as this can […]

Review of Eat Like a Dinosaur by The Paleo Parents

I received my advance copy of Eat Like a Dinosaur the other day and I am so excited to review it! This book is a labor of love from Stacy Toth and Matthew McCarry, AKA The Paleo Parents. Stacy and Matt’s story is truly inspiring. They are the parents of 3 boys (6, 3, and 1) who turned their family’s life around through making good decisions around food. At the time that Stacy discovered the principles of a paleo lifestyle, she had just given birth to their 3rd son. Desiring to give up dairy and get her health under control, she began reading about paleo. She soon converted Matt, and then they realized that their children could benefit from this way of eating too. Stacy and Matt have lost a combined total of over 200 pounds in less than 15 months, and transformed the health of their children as well. They accomplished all of this by eating real, whole foods and by getting their kids excited about the food choices they have. This book has over 100 recipes for families, from those with food allergies to those who simply struggle with getting their kids excited about asparagus. Eat Like a Dinosaur explains the idea of an ancestral-based approach to eating. The recipes and projects engage the whole family to spend time together having fun with food. The book gives step by step instructions, pointing out where children can help with the food preparation process. For families with food allergies, the book visually highlights the top 8 allergens so that kids can self-identify recipes that work for them. All recipes are dairy, wheat, peanut and soy free. Those containing fish, shellfish, tree nuts, and eggs are easily identified. This easy system helps kids to get excited about the choices they do […]

The Whole 30, Days 14-28

First, I have to apologize that my posting has been so sporadic for the past 2 weeks! I got a bit busy with this: And this: Followed by this: Well, and then this: inaccurate credit Then I was mentioned here: And by the end of this past week I was like this: Click Here! So, after chilling out yesterday and getting a good night’s sleep, I’m ready to carry on with the regularly scheduled programming! I took lots of pictures of meals that I will share with you; but, many are repeats of the past meals so they are not that exciting. What is exciting is that The Whole 30 no longer feels like this strange science experiment I’m doing; it just feels like part of my life. I would venture to guess that making these changes feel like part of your life is part of the goal of doing The Whole 30 (Dallas and Melissa are so smart, and so sneaky). They snuck right into my brain and convinced it that it doesn’t NEED anything! It just WANTS everything. I would have told you that by age 41 I knew the difference between needs and wants (and in most areas I do); but, when it comes to food and drink, I think we are all a bit confused. We are confused because we take something that is a true biological need (food and drink) and layer all sorts of wants over top of it (Paleo chocolate cake, NorCal Margaritas, Organic creamer, a bit of sugar in the coffee, a glass of wine (or three) with dinner, lots of good cheese on the big healthy salad). And we feel really justified in our reasoning behind consuming these items (I had a stressful day and I need a glass of wine […]
