Paleo Cookie Dough Cheesecake and Primal Kitchen Sesame Ginger Ribeye Steaks – Saturday Cooking Adventures

My husband is off work Fridays and Saturdays. We did not have any plans for those two days so we just had a chill time at home. I needed something to pass the time so I resorted to cooking. What better way to spend the time! I started off Saturday with some multigrain pancakes for Joe and Chloe. I got started on dessert, a Paleo Cookie Dough Cheesecake, early because those cheesecakes take a few hours to set. And dinner was simple~ ribeye steaks marinated in Primal Kitchen Sesame Ginger and peppered bacon wrapped in asparagus. It was a delightful day of cooking from start to finish.

Seems kinda contradictory though to make a vegan cheesecake for dessert after a ribeye dinner! I mainly chose to make this type of cheesecake for the fact that it is paleo and uses only gluten-free ingredients. I do try to eat vegan meals on occasion though because I do enjoy them. My favorite vegan food to make is “nice cream”. It is a vegan ice-cream created with frozen bananas, coconut milk, and other fruits, etc. It is a simple, healthy dessert to create at home and a nice alternative to regular ice-cream.

In this post I will be discussing how I made the dessert and the dinner and I have broken it down into sections for you.

Primal Kitchen Dressing & Marinade – Paleo, Whole 30, Keto Foods For Your Health – Take Your Meal To The Next Level

Primal Kitchen haul! Avocado oil and dressings/marinades

An exciting package recently landed on my doorstep. I knew it was coming and I was totally anticipating it. It was my Primal Kitchen package.

I ordered from Thrive Market (you can score 25% off with my link) but you can also order direct through Primal Kitchen and save 10% off your order with the promo code: GIVEITAWHIRL10. I strongly feel that the best way to go is directly through Primal Kitchen since they sell every single item that they have available.

The wonderful thing about these Primal Kitchen dressings is that they are REAL FOOD. These are paleo approved and that to me is just super. Many Primal Kitchen dressings are also Whole 30 compliant, but not all (check your labels). These dressings are made with avocado oil, which is considered a healthy fat. These dressings are also free of refined sugar & trans fat free, and that is something that you often see in salad dressings… sugar and trans fats which are absolutely garbage and wreak havoc on our systems. Primal Kitchen is also a low-carbohydrate option.

I started out with the Primal Kitchen Italian Dressing & Marinade. Sunday morning started out with me pouring a generous amount into a Pyrex casserole dish to marinate a couple of chicken breasts. I also poured a small amount into a bowl with some fresh mozzarella pearls and cherry tomatoes.

Then dinner time rolled around and boy was I HANGRY! I oiled up my Lodge Cast Iron Grill Pan (everyone needs one of these grill pans) with a little drizzle of Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil and placed the marinated chicken in the pan.

I also had a nice garlic and rosemary flatbread that I created using a recipe by Savory Lotus. I made a few modifications to the recipe and boy did it ever turned out delicious! So props to Savory Lotus for the incredible recipe!

While I was using the grill pan to cook up the Primal Kitchen Italian Chicken Breasts I sliced some mozzarella pearls and topped the chicken with them and let them get a bit melty. Who doesn’t love some ooey gooey mozzarella cheese… yum and yes please!

This dinner turned out great. My only regret is not having any fresh basil on hand to top this with. Gosh, I just love fresh basil in my Italian food. It really amps up the flavor. The flatbread was a nice addition to this meal. I would definitely make that again to serve on the side with one of my meals.
