I’m documenting the weight-loss transformation of 45 women who are going full Paleo and high intensity training for the next 90 days starting in the morning.
So I attended a Paleo workshop Saturday and it was fantastic as was the food that was cooked by a chef from Friends that Cooks. He whipped up some Sausage Scramble, Kale Chips, Jicama Apple Slaw, Chicken Fajita Salad and Rosemary Crusted Turkey Tenderloin. (Believe it or not, I could have their service come cook for me as little as $100 a week plus food, not bad).
Afterwards we got to sample some Paleo desserts, which were also incredible. I loved the brownies that had a chili pepper kick so I’ve included that recipe below as well as the turkey tenderloin. I hope you’ll try both. If you need more recipes get The Paleo Diet by Loren Cordain or It Starts with Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig. Also here is a link to some Paelo apps you can download for free or just $5.
The leader of the workshop, Tina Sprinkle of Pilates 1901, shared that when we eat processed foods, sugars, wheat, alcohol, and dairy, we create substantial hormone imbalances in our bodies, wreak havoc on our gut, promote inflammation and make ourselves feel run down and tired. By eliminating these foods, you body heals and recovers, therefore increasing energy and decreasing muffin tops. (I won’t even get into the GMO issues with genetically modified grains, but Paleo bypasses this health concern by avoiding all grains).
The proof will be in 45 women’s missing muffin tops in 90 days. They’ve raised their hands to participate fully, which include before and after pictures, which I’ll share here on my blog through Thanksgiving.
Rosemary Crusted Turkey Tenderloin
2 turkey tenderloins
1 tbsp melted ghee
salt and pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic, minced
fresh rosemary sprigs
fresh thyme sprigs
Clean, rinse and pat turkey until dry. Place in a mixing bowl. Finely chop garlic, thyme and rosemary. Season with salt and pepper. Place rosemary, thyme, ghee and garlic in bowl. Toss and rub turkey until seasonings are distributed. Brown outside of turkey in non-stick pan over medium high heat. Place on a sheet plan and roast at 425 for 12 minutes until firm.
Paleo Brownies with a Kick
NOTE: the one’s I ate, didn’t have the chocolate chips on top
1 c Palm Shortening (or Coconut Butter)
4 oz Baking Chocolate, melted in 1 T Coconut Oil
1/2 c Raw Honey
1/2 c Full Fat Coconut Milk
2 t Vanilla
3 Eggs, beaten
1/4 c Cocoa Powder
1 T Arrowroot Powder
1 t Baking Soda
1/2 t Cinnamon
1/8 t Nutmeg
1/4 t Cayenne Pepper (add an extra 1/4 t for a real kick!)
1 c Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
Cream together the palm shortening, melted chocolate, eggs, honey, vanilla, and coconut milk.
Combine all of the dry ingredients and the seasonings. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and combine well.
Pour into a greased 9×9 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
Remove from the oven and, while the brownies are still hot, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top and allow to melt slightly.
Enjoy these healthy recipes. It’s a great time to get healthy and lose any extra weight before the Holidays hit. If you agree, please share this on your Facebook page. THANKS.
