Paleo Foodporn: French Toast Casserole with Blueberries

IMG_5145

Yesterday I made the “Blender Bread” from Danielle Walker’s Joyful (which you can get for $1.99!) Do yourself a favor and make this in the food processor instead of the blender, unless you have one of these.

Then I prepped the rest of the casserole (also in the book) the night before, swapping out cranberries for blueberries.  Popped it in the oven this morning and voila!

Overall it tastes good, but a little bland.  I’m thinking maybe next time adding in some bacon or sausage would add an interesting element and some additional flavor.  But OMG it’s Paleo French Toast Casserole!

This does violate the Whole30 SWYPO rule, so if you’re doing Whole30, avert your eyes.

Paleo Foodporn: Swedish Meatballs, Asian Chicken Thighs, Potatoes

I’m so happy potatoes made it to the Whole30 list of approved foods!

The secret to this gravy is some tapioca flour as a thickener.  It also uses coconut milk!

I like to take pictures of food.  I also like to eat food!  We’re warming up for a Whole30 over here and while we’re far from perfect, we are moving in the right direction.  Incrementally better.  My husband is a far better cook than I will ever be (I am, however, a better baker!)  Take a look at some of our latest paleo delights…

Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

The for the pulled pork we used leftover pork from Christmas dinner.  My husband’s hands went numb shredding it with forks, but it was worth it.  These instructions on how to make sweet potatoes in the microwave is a life-and-time saver.

Scallops are always a splurge, but well worth it.  The butternut squash we bought pre-cut (again, a life-and-time saver) and simply roasted on a baking sheet in the oven with some olive oil and any garlic-herb seasoning of your choice.
