Unrolled Cabbage Casserole

I'm a foodie.  I LOVE a good meal.  Back in college when other kids were partying, I would be in my dorm perfecting my upside down baileys creme brulee.  Once a week I would invite friends over so I could work on the timing of preparing a meal so all elements were ready by the same time.  As the years have passed, my focus on cooking as gone towards a more healthy approach understanding that what we put in to our body helps fuel us for the day and affects our performance.  However, I'm a sucker for comfort food.   This recipe, the Unrolled Cabbage Casserole, comes from Health-Bent.  It is not the prettiest dish out there, and may take a while in the oven, but it more than makes up for it in taste.  And after it sits overnight in the fridge for the flavors to fully meld, you'll find yourself suddenly unwilling to share your left overs with anyone else.

Paleo Sweet Potato Thyme Biscuits

This recipe comes from one of my favorite books, Paleo Indulgences by Tammy Credicott.  It's important to note that these are indulgences for a reason and shouldn't be created or consumed as part of the standard food intake.  However, life is about balance and when in need of a special treat for a special occasion, these are an excellent addition to the table.

Sweet Potato Casserole

This is probably one of my favorite and most versatile dishes courtesy of Paleo Comfort Foods by Julie & Charles Mayfield.  It's great for a pre-workout energy boost without weighing you down.  Andrew just stands there at the counter and eats it cold before heading to the gym.  It makes an excellent side dish at Thanksgiving or any dinner.  It's also very tasty for breakfast with some eggs, bacon and avocado.  Garnet yams/sweet potatoes do not need all that brown sugar to make it delicious, and the lemon zest really brightens the flavors.
