Paleo Root Vegetable Pot Roast

Roast preparations

First things first though. Let’s discuss this Root Vegetable Pot Roast from the beginning. The meat is the highlight of the meal after all. The first thing I do for a slow-cooker roast is salt and pepper that slab of meat, throw it on a hot saute pan with olive oil, let it sizzle and brown. When you brown your meat you lock in the juice of the meat and your meat will be so tender when dinner time rolls around. I used a small 2 pound roast for this recipe but I believe you could use any chuck roast up to three pounds. If you are looking for a great deal on a chuck roast, I have had great success with shopping at Kroger. read more

Paleo Vegetable Beef Soup Recipe – Slow-Cooker- Gluten-Free

Heads up, everyone! It is officially autumn so do you know what that means?? It is soup season! It is also a great time for my slow-cooker to get a workout. I love to prep my soup in the late morning and let it simmer on low until dinner time. This recipe is for a paleo vegetable beef soup. Your slow-cooker will be full to the brim with meat and veggies.

Vegetables galore This paleo soup is all about clean eating. It is also focusing on health and wellness. Inside this soup you will find the following vegetables: carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, yellow squash, onions, and garlic. I also used two cans of Muir Glen's organic fire-roasted crushed tomatoes. If you follow my blog you would know that Muir Glen is my go-to brand for my organic tomato needs.

Gluten-Free Paleo-ish Chicken Potpie Soup and Paleo Lemon Turmeric Chicken – How I Created It

I had two super healthy meals yesterday and when that happens in the kitchen I feel quite accomplished! For lunch, we had a gluten-free, paleo-ish chicken potpie soup and for dinner, we had a grilled lemon/turmeric chicken breast with fried sweet potatoes in ghee, and roasted broccoli. I am trying to get back on the healthy train because I feel like I have somewhat fallen off of it with all of the naughty baking I have been doing. I am making an effort to get back on track and I feel good about my meal choices yesterday. read more

Paleo Pot Roast With Parsnips RECIPE Gluten-Free, Slow-Cooker – When Comfort & Simplicity Collide

The fall weather is approaching and that means meals like pot roasts and soups will be in full swing in my kitchen. For cool weather meals, I also like to bust out my slow-cooker. The slow-cooker is a perfect tool to use for when you want a meal with minimal effort. It is great for busy workdays or school days. All you need to do is a little prep, set it, and forget it. 

Pot Roast is one of those meals that are simple to prepare for someone following a gluten-free or paleo diet. The meat and veggies are the stars of the show. Simple ingredients and effortless steps to obtain an incredible meal.

This was our first time trying out parsnips. I wanted to be adventurous with this roast and add something new to it so we went with that. My daughter, Chloe, actually loved them and my husband was on the fence about it (he is somewhat picky). I really enjoyed them and would continue to use them in my roast recipe. I would actually probably add another one of two next time I make pot roast with them.

Wally’s Frozen Custard REVIEW, Sugar Booger Donuts, & Coffee Cardamom Steak – Foodie Weekend Adventure

I always try to make my Sundays all about awesome food. I always make a big deal about Sunday supper. It has to be something special. It needs to be mindblowing. I also like to prepare some sort of brunch for us. Yesterday was a success and I achieved pretty much everything that I wanted to. We had homemade baked donuts in the morning, tender & juicy t-bone steaks for dinner, and an ice-cream sundae large enough to feed an elephant!
