Where I’ve Been and Where I’m Going

Paleo Kosher Kitchen-final

It has been a very long time since I posted anything here. It is good to be back.

When started this blog I had just started my first Whole 30. I was completely new to the idea of Paleo eating and decided try the Whole 30 as a way of identifying food sensitiveness that I suspected I had.  I wanted to blog about the recipes I was making during the Whole30 challenge as a way of motivating me to be creative and not just eat sliced up veggies and sautéed ground meat all the time.  Then I got pregnant with my third son, stopped cooking as much, and kind of fell off the healthy eating wagon for a while. All those things made it so that I wasn’t motivated to post on this site.

But now that I am back to healthier eating, and this time my whole family has made the switch with me, I am motivated to blog again about the healthy and delicious foods we enjoy in my house. I am reinvigorated to stretch my creativity to make delicious food that is utterly satisfying and wholesome and truly provides us the fuel we need to feel our best.  Even my six year old has noticed how much better he feels now that he isn’t eating any gluten or dairy.  Because I want my blog to truly reflect how we eat most of the time a blog limited to the Whole 30 no longer feels like the best fit for me. The thing about the Whole 30 is that it is not meant to be a permanent lifestyle. It is a great way to identify food sensitivities and jump-start or reset a healthier way of eating, but it is just too restrictive for everyday life. (Not to mention it is a hard sell for little kids who want to eat the things other kids get to eat, like pancakes and muffins). So I have decided to expand my blogging to incorporate things that are part of a healthy Paleo diet (basically no grains, legumes, dairy or refined sugars of any kind).  I am re-launching this blog on a new site,  Paleo Kosher Kitchen. Many of the recipes will still be Whole 30 compliant, there will just be an occasional treat thrown in as well. Whether you are looking for grain-free, paleo recipes or just want some ideas for healthy, delicious, whole food recipes I know you will enjoy what I have planned for the new site. I hope you will join me there.

Brussel Sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables. I recently discovered they make delicious raw salads, but I still think this recipe is my favorite way to eat them. This is my dad’s recipe and I have tried to make it myself several times and it never came out as well as his. Since we were making […]

When I see interesting ingredients in the store I can’t help buying them. I often don’t have any idea what I am going to do with them, but into my cart they go. (This is how I ended up with a bunch of quinces from the farmers market a few weeks ago, I will post […]

On a cool rainy day like today nothing sounds better than a bowl of warm creamy soup. This cauliflower leek soup is one of my favorites. I always make it in huge batches and freeze some in single serving containers so that I have it ready for a quick lunch or dinner. The first time […]

We are having sweet potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts with lamb bacon and hazelnuts, green beans with fig vinaigrette and of course Turkey. I will skip the stuffing and […]

Turkey Tacos

November 20, 2012

With Thanksgiving this week I imagine that come Friday there will be many people with a lot of leftover turkey. I love having leftover turkey, and we always make extra to ensure leftovers. While reheated leftovers are great just as they are, sometimes it is nice repurpose the leftovers to make a new dish. These […]

Persimmon Pomegranate Salad

November 6, 2012

Salads get a bad rap some times, but a well crafted salad is one of my favorite lunches. In my mind what makes a great salad is a balance of flavors and textures. Sweet, bitter, salty and creamy, together they make a perfect salad. Each bite should be slightly different because of what the fork […]

Moroccan Carrot Salad

November 4, 2012

This carrot salad is one of our favorite recipes. I often make it for shabbat dinner and guests consistently ask for the recipe. I just made a huge batch of this using a whole three pound bag of carrots and it is already more than half gone.  These carrots are great as a side dish but I […]

A New Start

October 19, 2012

I decided to start this blog as a way of chronicling some of the food I make as part of the Whole 30 challenge . I find that blogging about food pushes me to try harder to make things worthy of sharing so this blog will keep me from getting bored with my food choices. I […]
