The other day I wrote about how I recently started the Autoimmune Paleo Program. The majority of recipes I post in this batch of 15 were made prior to my starting that. I always cook faster than I post.

Notes: I sauteed garlic, basil, and yellow grape tomatoes in a tablespoon of olive oil. Then I added 6 oz of quartered black olives, a can of crushed tomatoes, and a small can of tomato paste and simmered.

212. Eggplant and Mushroom “Meatballs”

Notes: I used quinoa instead of millet. Cooking whole grains can take up a lot of time so I typically prepare one grain in a slow cooker over the weekend, refrigerate the leftovers, and use them in other recipes during the next few days.

Notes: This recipe said you could use a sweetener or milk. I used stevia. These cookies tasted good but they weren’t crisp like a traditional digestive. I would try using milk next time or perhaps baking them a bit longer.

Notes: This was a lovely salad to kick off fall with. It was figs, arugula, plum, and goat’s cheese.  The dressing was olive oil, pomegranate vinegar, dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.

216. Egg in the Hole

Notes: This is one of my favorite comfort foods but I’d never attempted to make it before. I buttered Ezikel bread and cut a hole through one slice. I but a whole egg and spinach in the hole and cooked in a frying pan like you would a grilled cheese sandwich.

Notes: I made chai tea with some vanilla bean and heated coconut milk. I have since learned that traditional chai tea isn’t on autoimmune paleo because of the seeds in the spices so I’ve started making an earl grey latte instead.

Notes: The recipe called for ground chicken but my butcher only had turkey so I used that which does tend to get a little drier than other meats.
