Pineapples Stuffed With Sweet Teriyaki Chicken and Ginger/Orange Quinoa - Gluten-Free

Pineapples Stuffed With Sweet Teriyaki Chicken and Ginger/Orange Quinoa RECIPE – Gluten-Free – One Last Summer Meal

It really is starting to feel like autumn now and I have been craving this dish all summer and I finally got around to whipping this dish up a couple nights ago. I created a pineapple dish with a sweet honey teriyaki sauce (the sauce is paleo compliant) with chicken breast and some ginger & orange quinoa. My daughter, Chloe, was super duper excited to chow down on this dish. It is so fun to eat your food out of a pineapple, right? This dish is gluten-free and will also be paleo if you just leave out the ginger/orange quinoa.

Paleo Balsamic Steak With Primal Kitchen – Simplicity Is Often Best When It Comes To Steak

I had two New York strip steaks to cook yesterday. I often opt for a garlic herbed ghee when cooking up my steaks but I wanted to mix things up a bit last night and try something different. I have been trying out many of the flavors of Primal Kitchen dressings/marinades that I ordered recently and I am completely and totally satisfied with their quality.

RECIPE – Make You Own No-Bake Toasted Coconut, Chocolate, & Chia Granola Bars

There are so many ways you can make your own granola bars at home. Making my own is a fun, rewarding experience for me. I ask my 8-year-old daughter, Chloe, to help with the stirring because she has some good muscles for her age and you really have to give them a big stir with the spatula.

For these granola bites I used gluten-free ingredients and also paleo-friendly ingredients. No sugar was added to these, they are naturally sweet from the Medjool dates and raw honey. These are a great snack that you can just grab and go.

Simple Red Raspberry Wine Dessert Sauce – RECIPE

I made this red raspberry wine dessert sauce on a whim last night. It paired so nicely with my my Revele white chocolate raspberry gelato. The recipe to whip up this awesome sauce is so simple and easy. Also there are no added sugars in this sauce. The raw honey will naturally sweeten the sauce.

Ingredients used:

1 pint of raspberries
2 tablespoons of a red wine. For best results use a sweet red or a raspberry dessert wine. I used Sandhill Crane Vineyards Rhapsody in Red
1 tablespoon of raw honey. I used Madhava.
1 teaspoon of lemon juice. I used DeLallo lemon juice
