I talk a lot about food and nutrition! And, subsequently, I get tons of questions like:
1. What do you all eat then?
2. What does that cost?
3. What do your kids eat?
4. What is wrong with you people??? 🙂

I made this video today after I got home from the store. I explain what a primarily Paleo family eats during the week. We already had a pretty well-stocked pantry so factor that in. Here is the link:
What We Eat

I had a request from a facebook friend to post a recipe with either spinach or squash. I am not big on squash (it is honestly one of the only veggies I don’t really like), but I love spinach. And my husband LOVES spinach! There are very few things that are as healthy and as quick and easy as sauteed spinach. This isn’t much of a recipe, but for those of you who don’t really know what to do with your spinach besides making a salad, this is for you.

Here are all the ingredients you need: spinach, red pepper flakes, salt, and fat of choice (I like coconut oil)

Heat up your oil in the pan on medium/low heat, throw in your spinach. Cook more than you think you will need, it shrinks like crazy. These pictures I am using a half of a bag of the pre-washed grocery store bags. This makes about 1-2 servings. Add salt, red pepper flakes. Cover and stir occasionally. It only takes 3-4 minutes for the spinach to wilt.

Transfer to a plate and top with crispy prosciutto chips or bacon (you could always cook the bacon up first and then cook the spinach in the bacon grease- oh baby!) The spinach is a little spicy, full of flavor, and of course jam-packed with vitamins.

If you wanted to do the sauteed spinach with some fish, you could top with a little lemon zest. If you wanted to have the spinach with chicken, you could top the spinach with sun-dried tomatoes. Really there are a million different combinations. I LOVE FOOD!!!

What do you do with your spinach?

(I got the recipe/idea for the crispy prosciutto chips from Nom Nom Paleo. Really you are just putting prosciutto in the oven to crisp it up and then you can crumble it on salads, veggies, eggs, etc.)
