Foodie Friday: Paleo Challenge Recipe Roundup

THANKSGIVING SCHEDULE: Wednesday-No Evening Classes, Thursday-Closed, Friday-9am all levels team WOD only

burgersAfter eight long weeks, the LuRong Living Paleo Challenge participants have emerged from their caves. I asked them to share their favorite discoveries from the past eight weeks, and here’s what they told me.

Dave’s Enchilada Chicken Stew http://paleomg.com/enchilada-chicken-stew/
Dave loves his crock pot, stew, and Juli at PaleOMG (who doesn’t?). I’ve actually made this recipe as well, and it’s great on top of some cauliflower rice with avocado.
Aaron agrees with me that food inside of other food is a beautiful thing. For the challenge, he used some Italian sausage instead of bacon in this recipe.
Sophia loves her short ribs, and this is her favorite way to make them. If you’ve ever looked for short ribs in the greater Fort Wayne area and couldn’t find any, it’s because Sophia bought them all. She doesn’t get cheeky with this recipe, and uses all short ribs instead of ribs and beef cheek.
My favorite paleo blogger and author, Melissa Joulwan, released a new book in the middle of the challenge. I’ve made probably five or six Well Fed 2 recipes so far, and they’ve all been excellent. I made these sweet-and-savory SB&J burgers with some crisp-sweet collard greens, also from the book, so you’ll have to pick up a copy if you want some collards to go along with your burgers.
The paleo challengers are all waiting patiently for their final challenge scores, which will be released on Sunday. In the mean time, we will be celebrating our paleo victories in some sweet custom CFFW bowling shirts (thanks, Dave!!) and looking legit for our post-challenge bowling extravaganza. I may have to watch The Big Lebowski to mentally prepare.
That rug really tied the room together, did it not?
