New Lifestyle, New Recipe Ideas

I am on a 36 day Paleo Challenge (for more information click here ), so I am trying to come up with some new recipe ideas. Today, I made Primal Pancakes and Pumpkin Lasagna. There is no wheat, gluten, or sugar in either dish. I ate the pancakes for breakfast and will eat the lasagna for lunch! Can't wait!!!

Here's how I did the Lasagna:

1 lb ground beef
1/2 roll of Natural sausage
3/4 - 1 cup spaghetti sauce (no sugar)
salt, pepper, italian seasoning, basil, oregano

1 - "sugar" pumpkin, halved, gutted, and sliced into crescents

Brown beef, sausage and onion together; drain.
Mix together spaghetti sauce, spices and meat mixture.

Saute the crescent pumpkin slices in olive oil

Layer, pumpkin and meat mixture in a baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Enjoy!

Almond Flour Pancakes
1 c almond meal/flour
3 eggs
1/8 t cinnamon
1/8 t vanilla
pecans (optional)
wild Maine blueberries (optional)

Mix all ingredients together and spoon onto a hot oiled pan. They won't get fluffy like other pancakes. Flip and cook the other side. Serve with a drizzle of raw honey and topped with sliced bananas or berries.

The pancakes are a great alternative to carb crazy normal pancakes and they are yummy and satisfying!
