  1. Roughly chop cauliflower florets and place in a large food processor. Pulse until the texture resembles rice. Remove cauliflower and squeeze with paper towels to remove excess water. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the next 4 ingredients (coconut aminos through ginger) and set aside.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok, over medium heat.
  4. Add onion and carrots, cooking 2-3 minutes, until they begin to soften. Then add peas and garlic and cook 1-2 minutes more. Remove vegetables from pan and set aside.
  5. Re-turn pan to heat and add two more tablespoons of coconut oil. Add chicken, cooking 3-5 minutes, until cooked through. Remove from heat and add the chicken to the re-served vegetable mixture. Return pan to heat and add remaining coconut oil.
  6. Add the cauliflower rice and cook 6-8 minutes, stirring only once or twice, until cauliflower has browned and become crispy. Increase heat to medium-high, and create an opening in the middle of the cauliflower and add the eggs.
  7. Immediately begin stirring the eggs around to quickly scramble and distribute among the cauliflower.
  8. Once eggs are cooked, about 1-2 minutes, reduce heat to medium-low and add reserved vegetables, chicken and the sauce mixture to the pan.
  9. Stir well to combine.
  10. Allow everything to heat through, about 1 minute, top with cilantro and serve.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 and line a jellyroll pan with parchment.
  2. In a skillet, heat your ghee over medium high heat. Add the shallots and cook till translucent. Add the greens and ham and continue to cook till greens are wilted.
  3. Now to a medium mixing bowl, add your almond flour and baking powder, mixing well. Add the beaten eggs and mix well, then the contents from your skillet. It shouldn't be too runny otherwise add a little more almond flour.
  4. Add half the cheese and mix again. Now spoon out the breakfast cookies onto the parchment lined pan, a good 2 tablespoons per cookie.
  5. Finish the cookie by sprinkling a little cheese over the top and pushing it down ever so slightly so it will bake in.
  6. Bake for 8-12 minutes--watch it. It depends on the size of your cookie, your oven etc. so make sure you don't over cook.
  7. When they're done, put on a rack to cool and store in a container or ziplock bag in the fridge. Lasts 4 days.

To make Paleo, just omit cheese!

Pan Seared Butter Braised Pork Chops with Herb White Wine Reduction

This recipe is every inch as mouth watering as it sounds. "pan seared" - "butter braised" - "pork chops" - "herb white wine reduction" - what we didn't include in the recipe name (since it was already crazy lengthy) was we topped it with FRIED SAGE. Oh mama. Everything good exists in this scrumptious recipe. Pork chops can be real buggers to cook - often becoming tough or flavorless or both - not these beauties. The right combo of the right methods makes these pork chops perfectly juicy and flavorful.

Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, mix together first 4 ingredients (vinegar through rosemary), then set aside.

  2. Season both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper, then place in large zipper topped plastic bag. Pour garlic mixture over the top, make sure chops are evenly saturated, let out excess air, seal and place in refrigerator to marinate for at least 1 hour (up to 48 hours).

  3. At time of cooking, heat ghee in a large skillet over medium heat. Remove pork chops from refrigerator and marinade, and once ghee begins to sizzle, add pork to skillet.

  4. Sear for 5 minutes, not touching the pork chops, then flip and sear for another 5 minutes, again, not fidgeting with them.

  5. After you've seared them on both sides, add the butter to the pan, along with a pinch of the minced herbs (rosemary, thyme, sage) - only a pinch, set the rest aside.

  6. Using tongs, flip the pork chops, and then baste (with a basting brush) with ghee/butter/herbs in the skillet. Repeat this process for 5 minutes. Continuously flipping and basting as you go.

  7. Then remove pork chops from skillet, and add the shallot. Sauté for about 2 minutes or until shallot is fragrant and translucent.

  8. Deglaze pan with splash of the wine. Using a whisk to get all the good bits off the bottom of the pan, continue whisking for about 2 minutes, then add remaining wine, herbs, and broth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  9. Bring to a boil, and allow to boil until liquid has reduced by half, then reduce heat to low and simmer for at least 10 minutes.

  10. Serve pork with a generous ladle of sauce and a couple fried sage leaves.


Recipe Notes

To fry sage:

Heat 1/3 cup olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Once it begins to pop, add a handful of sage leaves. Fry for 3 to 5 seconds (seriously, it fries crazy fast), then immediately remove and place on a paper towel covered plate. Continue until you have as much as you need. Season with a sprinkle of sea salt and you're good to go!

Parmesan Asparagus Risotto
Nothing says late spring like big bright stalks of asparagus! Grilled, sautéed, ribboned, or, our favorite, in a creamy risotto - this seasonal dreamboat of a veggie takes center stage for a few weeks out of the year and we're here to give it it's leading role! Not only is risotto a classic Italian comfort food, but it also is an excellent costar for our dear asparagus. The smooth buttery and wine flavored rice highlights the best qualities in asparagus - cooked to perfection and still slightly firm (no one likes mushy asparagus) - the two just compliment each other perfectly. Don't take our word for it, test this recipe yourself! You'll be singing praises about this seasonal culinary debut in no time!

Instructions
  1. First, to "parboil" is to partially cook vegetables in boiling water. So when you parboil the asparagus, cook them in the boiling water for no more than 2 minutes, then immediately strain and rinse with cold water so they don't continue to cook, and set aside.
  2. In a large sauce pan, over medium heat, add broth. Bring to a simmer (just before boiling), then turn heat down to low.
  3. In a separate large sauce pan, heat ghee over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent - 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Add rice and stir constantly to ensure all grains are evenly coated in oil, sauté for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Add white wine to pan, continue to stir and cook until wine is fully absorbed.
  6. Then begin to add broth, one ladleful at a time. Stir continuously between each ladleful, and only once the broth is mostly absorbed do you add the next bit of broth.
  7. Once you're down to the last couple cups of broth, and the rice is slightly tender and still slightly firm to the bite with a creamy consistency, add the asparagus with the next couple ladlefuls of broth and be sure to reserve 1/2 a cup of broth.
  8. Turn heat down to low and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until broth is mostly absorbed and asparagus is heated through. Then ad remaining ingredients: reserved broth, butter, Parmesan, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

To convert this into a paleo recipe:

Replace rice with 6 cups of cauliflower rice.

Only use 4 cups of broth, and it can be added at one time - just cook until mostly absorbed and cauliflower is tender and fluffs easily with a fork (since it cooks much faster than real rice, it doesn't require the same cooking method).

Then just replace Parmesan with nutritional yeast, and you're ready to go!
