Lemon Chicken Salad

My copycat for the lemon chicken salad that I buy at Trader Joe's

Breakfast sausage crumble (1 serving = 4oz)

I adapted this recipe from Alton Brown. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-b

I don't like pork, but I do like the smell of breakfast sausage so I made this version that I think it is tastier and even healthier.

It is very flavorful with lots of spice. In my version I use Demerara sugar but you could also substitute brown sugar. I also use 80/20 Organic beef and drain off the fat quite a bit. You could reduce the spices to dial back the flavor if you prefer something more mild. We tried that but found that then it just tasted like beef, not sausage. You could also use any other ground meat. My local grocery has a deal on organic beef if you buy 80/20 so I use that.

Vietnamese Beef Kabobs Salad

Adapted from here: http://www.grouprecipes.com/93347/vietname
se-beef-kabobs.html

I changed this recipe up a bit to make it a salad. Sometimes I toss a mere 1/4 cup of rice noodles to it, which you can do to make it "heartier." While higher on the sodium than I desire, it never fails to delight.

Marbled Pumpkin Honey Cheesecake Minis

I made this recipe from three other recipes and my own personal cheesecake base. I used a mini cheesecake pan. This lets the cake cook much faster and gives a nice portion control. They are not really diet, but they are diet friendly since one cake is only 170 calories.

I used "light" versions of the dairy, and I would not suggest that you sacrifice flavor and go fat free. In fact, if you are feeling bold, go whole fat.

If you want all the fun and still reduced waist impact, make these *without* the crust. You can then reduce the calories by 50.

Turkey Meatloaf with Fontina and Mushroom

This was originally taken from Everyday Food September 2009. I made it gluten free by substituting coconut four.

Korean Rib Marinade Paleo

I bumped up the servings on this because it is, after all a marinade.

Orange Chocolate Mousse

I originally found this recipe as a pie. I modified it into cups to lower the calories. I love it. I make it for dinner parties.

Jax Rice Cooker Steely Oats

This recipes makes fantastic steel cut oats in a rice cooker with a risotto setting. I use this one http://www.amazon.com/Zojirushi-NS-XAC05XR

Darlene’s Mexican Carne Asada - Paleo

I got this from Mark's Daily Apple. I did not add the spices into the calorie mix and I only calculated into 1 oz of the beer since you don't really eat it. If you serve this with something else like salad or pico or avocado, make sure to add that separately if it matters to you.

Cauliflower Fritters Paleo Style

From Rachael Ray turned Paleo. Please note I did not add the greens or lemon juice to the nutrients. I also only added 1 t of olive oil for calculation purposes.
