I grew up eating a lot of greens. We had mustard greens, collard greens, turnip greens…oh, wait, I’m starting to sound like Forrest Gump, talking about shrimp. My point is, we ate greens at many of our meals. One of my favorites, AIP Paleo Turnip Greens with Pork recipe, is adapted from my childhood. My grandmother, Ma, used to cook her turnip greens with little chunks of turnip. The flavor mixture was earthy, with a bite of bitter. She also used either ham hocks or a ham bone, which added a smooth, salty flavor. Each bite was relished.
In creating my AIP Paleo Turnip Greens with Pork recipe, I added bacon, and used pork belly instead of ham. I think you’ll be pleased with the results. Feel free to use your favorite pork. Be sure if you’re using ham, it’s sugar free and free of spices unfriendly to the AIP.
I hope you like my AIP Paleo Turnip Greens with Pork recipe. If you cook this, or any of my recipes, please tag me if you post a photo anywhere on social media. I love to see others’ pics.
Next week’s recipe is going to knock your socks off! It combines two of my favorite dishes. I actually cooked it for my dinner tonight; and, it was AWESOME!
I also have an information post coming to you next week. I think you’ll find it interesting and helpful. The post is written for those of you who are thinking of making the transition to the AIP, but are intimidated by it. Also, if you’ve been doing the AIP for awhile, and are starting to get frustrated, you will benefit from the post. I will have that one out for you either Monday or Tuesday.
Until then, good health to you all.
