Favorite Recipe Blogs

By ShelleyB | In Nutrition, Uncategorized | on January 6, 2012

Since beginning Paelo, I have struggled with finding good recipe blogs. When you are searching for recipes on blogs, often you have to sift through a bunch of opinions and verbage just to get to the ingredients and directions. This drives me crazy. How can you follow a recipe when all the way through it you have to listen to the bloggers rantings? Furthermore, because Paleo is a relatively new on the scene, some folks are trying to substitute Paelo friendly ingredients for traditional ones. Working with coconut flour, almond flour, or coconut milk has very different results than your traditional flour and oil recipes. So, sometimes, those recipes just taste like dirt if they are not tried and tested.

Besides CrossFit West Houston, here are a few of my favorite recipe sites. Try some of them this week see how you like them.

I. Everyday Paleo – Sarah Frogoso has done an excellent job in making Paleo part of an everyday lifestyle. She has recipes that work in with an active lifestyle and one that is friendly to kids.

II. Paleo Betty– Nicole Tanzillo is a CrossFit gal, but believes that eating healthy foods, doesn’t mean you give up flavor. This morning I just had her Sweet Potato Pancakes. Oh my, were they good AND easy. Instead of doing the apples, I reduced down some fresh strawberries and blueberries and they were YUMMY. I gave them to a non-paleo friend to try and she was raving about them.

III. Elana’s Pantry – Now, Elana Amersterdam is not technically Paleo. She was diagnosed with Celiac’s disease and was forced into a gluten-free diet. Out of that experience and her love of cooking and baking, she has developed a gluten-free repertoire. However, she has taken a liking to the Paleo diet and has included some Paleo friendly recipes on her website.So be careful as you are sifting through her site. Her pumpkin pie muffins are to die for!

IV. Primal Women in the Kitchen – this is a local CrossFit Gym in my area that I just discovered. Their nutrition website has some great recipes with wonderful flavor mixtures.

Do you have any favorites? If so, please comment and share — I think we all look for inspiration in cooking!

    These were great sites to check out. This past weekend I have already made the Paleo Pizza and Banana Bread Bars from Primal Women (wow!) and the Spicy Oven Pecans with Cinnamon, which are amazing. I’m excited to try some of Elana’s Pantry recipes too. Thanks Shelly for the awesome suggestions!!
