My First Paleo Entree!

You all know how I feel about my weight and getting it down to where I want it to be.  I've been thinking and thinking and then I heard of this thing called a Paleo Diet.  I took myself to Barnes & Noble and drifted into the food/diet section.  A lot of books were only full of recipes. I needed information!  I found this book, below, and it is a great book.  The first half is all info and then there are tons of recipes. Some people that I've talked to about this diet lifestyle think they don't have time for it.  
The recipes in this book are quick to make.


The first recipe I tried was the Turmeric and Black Pepper Chicken with Rainbow Veg.
It is delicious and super easy to make.  It took me less than 10 minutes to put together and then just 30 minutes in the oven.  Here's how I made it . . .

Here's my Organic Free Range Chicken.
Something I am trying to do is go as Organic as possible.  For me, that is really the hardest part.  It's expensive.  I spent the most at Trader Joe's than I ever have before.  But, it's better for me!
At the store this weekend I spent over $60 on just organic veggies/fruit/meat.
***CRAZY***

To start off, you want to put the oven at 350 degrees.

1 tbsp of butter (I use Smart Balance, because it's lactose free)
2 Chicken Breasts or 4 Chicken Wings
1 tbsp of Tumeric
1 tsp of black pepper


Melt the butter and combine it with the turmeric and the pepper.  It's should have the substance of a sauce.


You want to coat the chicken with the sauce.
I basically soaked the chicken with it!  Every inch :)
Put the oven in the chicken for 20 - 30 minutes.  With my oven I need 30 minutes.  This is how the chicken looks when it's all done!


The chicken was pretty big, so I ate 1/2 of one.  I had my own steamed veggies and brown rice, so I ate those with dinner instead of making the Rainbow Veg.

It was super yummy and I will definitely be making this again. I basically have enough for 4 meals.

I wonder what meal I'll pick next time!

Have a great day :)
