One thing that I wanted to achieve with this blog was to provide simple, recipes that can be made very quickly and don’t require a lot of ingredients. There is no shortage of elaborate paleo, SCD, gluten free recipes on the internet. What I want to provide are fast and easy meals that I eat on a regular basis. I have found that some individuals have a difficult time eating real food diets because they spend a fair amount of time cooking and prepping elaborate meals that they found on the internet. This maybe sustainable in the short term, or on occasion but it is hard to commit to in the long term.

When I started eating a whole food diet I had no idea how to cook even the simplest of vegetables, so these simple recipes may provide a way for people to get their feet wet with cooking.

The method I use below is the same method I use to cook many types of vegetables like bell peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes etc.

I have found that baking vegetables this way tends to enhance the flavor of some vegetables over steaming or boiling. However some vegetable do better boiling or steaming like : peas, carrots, green beans, kale.

Ingredients

  1. Yellow squash DSC_0004
  2. zucchini
  3. onions
  4. 2-4tbsp of Coconut oil (or olive oil, pastured butter)
  5. Optional ingredients: garlic, mushrooms, bell peppers, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes etc.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven on broil.
  2. place 2-4 tbsp of oil in a large pan and throw the pan in the oven for a sec so that the oil can melt while you are slicing the veggies.DSC_0005
  3. Slice veggies and throw them in the pan with melted oil.
  4. Coat all the veggies in oil by tossing them in the pan and mixing them around with your hands.
  5. Bake for 45min-1hr until they become slightly browned. They should looks something like the picture below. Okay, maybe a little less crispy but that’s actually how I like mine sometimes.
