Weekly Recipe Wrap-up

Well folks it has been a while. Sorry for that. The last few weeks have been a bit rough for me… I didn't end up matching during the first round of CARMS. It's still hard for me to talk about and it has been a total emotional roller coaster ride that's for sure. It is so bizarre to me that a profession like medicine that requires people to give up so much of their lives can play with people's careers by deciding their entire future through a computer algorithm. Yes as you can still I am still quite upset. But it is getting better. Slowly. And for those of you who have no idea what I am talking about just ignore me! You're probably better off not knowing about the dark side of medicine. I do have a lot of people to thank for helping me get through this time. You know who you are! Thank you!

Ok I won't prolong my CARMS drama anymore… how about we talk about food instead? Always a much happier topic. I haven't had much time to create recipes lately so you are getting another weekly recipe wrap up. It will just have to do for now. Hopefully you haven't seen all of these on other blogs already!

In other news tt is also officially December which means I can start playing Christmas music and not feel guilty! I am a sucker for Christmas. All the lights, and good food, and happiness. Oh yay!

Well without any more delays... Here are this weeks recipes. Enjoy!

1. Sweet Potato and Apple Hash from The Saffron Girl

I love making hashes. Is that even a word? I don't know. But you get my drift. Basically throw everything in a pot and let it do its thing. Easy and delicious. I love the unexpected addition of apples in this hash recipe. Cooked apples are so delicious. And if you want to make this one SCD legal I would use butternut squash instead of the sweet potatoes. 

2. Apple Pear Tart from SweetlyRaw

I must be on an apple kick or something because this recipe also involves apples. Only in a dessert form. This is a raw tart from one of my favourite dessert blogs, SweetlyRaw. Those of you who have followed my blog for a while have heard me rave about this blog on many occasions. Now I would modify this one slightly by using honey instead of maple syrup to make it SCD legal and omitting the Stevia and using honey instead (I don't consider Stevia a "natural or primal" food). 

3. SCD Sloppy Joes with Coconut Flour Buns from SCDFoodie

I just had a friend ask me recently if I had found a good bun or bread recipe that holds together well. At the time I didn't have an answer but these "buns" (the look more like flatbread if you ask me) look pretty promising! Now I don't tolerate eggs well so I may pass on these but I hope you give them a try and let me know how they turn out. This recipe comes from a blog that is new to me, SCDFoodie, but there are a lot of good recipes over there trust me! And who doesn't love a good sloppy joe? Especially when made with grassed beef. Delicious. 

4. Cabbage Pizza Skillet from FoodRenegade

I bet I had you at pizza didn't I? I haven't met anyone who doesn't love pizza. It's all that cheesy goodness if you ask me. Now I know cheese is not truly paleo but it is allowed on the SCD diet so for those of you who do eat dairy this is for you! I think it is so clever adding cabbage to this! Gotta love those vegis! 

Alright everyone that is it for this week. Hopefully I will make a few more appearances on here in the next little while. I have finished my application for the second round of CARMS so once again my future is out of my control. It's not a fun feeling. Please send some good thoughts my way! I don't know if I can handle a second round of rejection. There have been enough tears already. 

Have a good week everyone. Happy cooking! 
As always please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. I love hearing from you!
