Weekly Recipe Wrap Up

It's my birthday today. Those who know me know that I am not much of a birthday celebrator and this year I have managed to catch the cold/flu from hell. Yep happy birthday to me! Sorry for the whining it's just that I never get sick. I probably haven't been sick for 2-3 years. And being a resident constantly exposed to nasty germs and infections I think this is pretty impressive. Apparently I am not invincible though. Dam. I wish I was. I have been watching lots of Suits the last few days to help me feel better (at least I tell myself it will make me feel better). I bet Harvey Spector doesn't ever get sick. Now that is a guy that seems invincible. Just saying. If you haven't seen the show you should check it out. It's a good one.

I have pinned a lot of recipes the last few weeks so it was hard choosing just a few for this weeks post but I hope you like the ones I picked. And if you are ever interested you can check out my Pinterest account to see the ones that didn't make the cut. There are some good ones there too I promise.

1. Gluten Free Hamburger Bun from the Tropical Traditions Website

It is always challenging finding bun or bread substitutes on a paleo style diet so I am pretty excited by the look of these buns. They are made with coconut flour, almond flour and eggs so the ingredients are all pretty safe and the results look great! 

2. Kabocha Squash Tacos From Fast Paleo

This is an interesting twist on a taco recipe made using my favourite type of squash. Kabocha's! These are also sometimes called buttercups depending on where you buy them so just be aware of that. If I were to make these I would add some delicious grassed beef to make this a complete meal. Yummy. Maybe I will make these tonight… hmm… 

3. Banana Chai Granola from GI365

I have yet to try making paleo style granola but when I do this will be the recipe I go to! There is no added sweetener in this one and the granola is sweetened with bananas and dates only. Genius! It's no secret that I love the blog GI365 and this is yet another recipe that I am dying to try! Kari is brilliant in the kitchen let me tell you. And her photos are gorgeous too. I might be slightly jealous. Only slightly. 

4. Gluten Free ABC Brownies from the Tropical Traditions Website 

I love it when people think of genius ways to use real food in recipes. This is a brownie recipe that incorporates both avocados and bananas. That may sound strange but avocados seem to lend themselves well to anything chocolately. You will just have to take my word on that and try these little treats. They do look pretty delicious if I do say so myself. 

Well everyone that's all I have for you for now. I hope you like these recipes! Let me know if you make any of them. I am going to go make some tea and curl up on the couch. Yep I do know how to have fun on a Saturday! I hope everyone has a good weekend!
