Do you like eating fish? I’ve never been a huge fan but I’d really like to try to eat more. Salmon just taste too fishy to me. I’ve tried it a few different ways but wasn’t a fan. Latest in Paleo ( great podcast by the way ) talks about eating Mashed Sardines with Kale Chips. I just don’t think I could go there…yikes! If you might want to try, go check it out here. Where was I? Oh yeah ..So I bought some Wild caught Mahi Mahi Fillets and thought Id make a recipe I saw for fish with Avocado Mango Salsa. (Find the complete recipe here on Cupcakes OMG blog ) I figured even fish has to taste great with avocados and mango’s right?? Her fish was all in one piece after she seared it in a pan ..I ended up feeling like mine wasn’t cooked enough inside so I broke it all up to be sure. I think i’m actually a little phobic of undercooked fish..ha in the end this is how my dish looked
Not Perfect but yummy. I cooked it in Coconut oil instead of olive. The Salsa has
2 mangoes, cubed
1 avocado, cubed
a dash of cilantro
1/2 red onion, diced
juice of 1/2 a lime
Mixed all together and chilled
The Family Approved of the dish over all. The 5 yr old ate 3 helpings but pushed the avocados out of the salsa. Really I figured she wouldn’t like the fish so it was a win in the end. We have some more Mahi Mahi in the freezer waiting for the next time I feel up to taking on my fear of fish
Do you have any tips on cooking fish? I’d love to hear them

Most of the roasts I’ve cooked have been in the crock pot because usually that is where they have come out the best. I saw a post on The Domestic Man for “Perfect Eye of Round Roast” It called for rubbing your roast with salt, pepper, thyme & garlic. Leave it at room temperature for 30 mins allowing the spices to settle in the roast ,then cooking it at 500 uncovered for 7 mins per lb. after that turn off the oven leaving it in the oven WITH OUT opening the door for 2.5 hrs. I have to tell you I wasn’t quit sure if it would work for me. I’m sure glad I made it ~!
This isn’t the best picture ( we had already eaten a bunch on the other end ) but oh let me tell you…it was so good, and full of flavor! For the full recipe and really great pictures go HERE and Check out The Domestic Man Blog.
I actually wanted mine done a little less pink than his so I cooked mine 10 mins per lbs but other wise I follow exactly. We gobble it up quick and will make again soon.

My Favorite cookbook right now is Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat By Melissa Joulwan . So far all the recipes I’ve made have past the family test.
You can download a 30 page pdf sampler of her book over on her site. That’s what I did & loved it so much I bought the book right away..
The first recipe I tried was Caramelized Coconut Chips
They are so good..Don’t they look amazing. I’m Pretty sure this recipe is included in the sampler.
Whats really Great about the book is she Has a “How To” on doing a weekly cookup and setting up Your Paleo Pantry..Great Stuff. Have I said great too many times??
All but one of her recipes in the book are Whole30 approved. which is even better.
check out the Char Siu ( Chinese BBQ Pork )
I’ve made this twice so far ..it was that good.
Who says eating good means sacrificing..not me ! I love making new things. If your new to eating Paleo or just started not eating Processed foods don’t ever feel like theres nothing out there left to eat but salads. I don’t have enough time to make all the fabulous recipes I find. I’ll start posting some of the yumminess we cook up around here so you can get lots of ideas.

A quick post to show off these oh so yummo Carrots on the Side..We got home late so I wanted an easy side for some leftover pot roast. I cut up some carrot sticks threw them in a frying pan with some Black pepper, garlic salt and about a tablespoon of coconut oil on med high heat
I let them cook for about 20 or 25 mins stirring a few times in between chasing the kids around
the finished product was approved by all quick easy and wonderful
I have a 7 Month old Son and Love making Him his Baby food. Earlier in the Week I got some Kobacha Squash,cut it in half, took out the seeds and placed in some water in the oven for about an hour. Then I scooped out the flesh and pureed it in the blender. He loved it.
We added some fresh Pear puree And Yum Yum in his Tum Tum
Tonight I had an extra squash so we Roasted it. This time I preheated the oven to 400 F, Cut it in half and scooped out the seeds , then cut in to wedges trying to get them about the same size
Melt about 2 tablespoons coconut oil and mix with the wedges. Add some Sea salt and Black pepper
then Roast on a cookie sheet with aluminum foil for about 30 or so minutes flipping half way thru to get both sides
It came out super Yummy to me…Hubbs and the Queen 5 year old were not as impressed but hey I’ll keep trying
What Better day then New Years Eve to have a new Beginning! This the Birth of My Blog baby. Its so exciting yet terrifying at the same time just like a real birth. Well its not as painful thankfully. I’m new to blogging and learning as fast as I can. I want so much for this site but mostly to have resources that are helpful to the people I meet everyday that need a starting point and also a way of documenting the journey my family is on with Eating real foods and Living well.
Its an interesting path for sure because I can’t eat Gluten, Corn, Soy, Nuts, Milk or eggs. There is no eating processed food for me. I have recently found the Paleo Diet and it has been working really well so I don’t eat grains now either. To make it more interesting I Balance a full time crazy Job, 2 small kids and 1 Junk food Loving Husband . Its a little more detailed than that but we will get into all that soon enough..So welcome to my blog :) feel free to comment ,give me ideas or tell me about your life and how you eat.
