Do you hate cooking? Are you hesitating on trying paleo or the AIP because you don’t have time to do all the cooking it involves? Do you just not know how to cook? If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, this is the post for you. Even though I love to cook, I have found myself without a lot of time to do it lately. This has given me a different perspective on all of the cooking required to do paleo and the AIP.

AIP Paleo Mardi Gras Breakfast Sausage Skillet Recipe

As many of you know, I’ve been working very hard to rebuild my strength and stamina to start Crossfit again.  Happily,  I am now able to do one hour workouts, 5 to 6 days a week.  However, that extra workout time has taken a big chunk out of my day.  Even though I started waking up an hour earlier in the morning, I have also learned the importance of stopping work earlier in the evening.  It’s very hard for me to keep up with everything lately.  But, I know it’s all part of a bigger healing picture.

With less time on my hands, I have found it more important than ever to batch cook my meals.  When I’m done working out, the last thing I feel like doing is cooking and cleaning.  Plus, it’s best to get your post-workout meal within 30 minutes of ending your session.  This Mardi Gras Breakfast Sausage Skillet has become my go-to post-workout meal.  It has plenty of protein to help build muscle tissue, and starchy carbs to refuel your body and give you energy.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound pork breakfast sausage (preferably pastured, sugar free pork)
  • 1/2 head of red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion

  • 1/2 cup chicken or bone broth
  • salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. Brown breakfast sausage in large cast iron skillet, over medium heat.
  2. Add the rest of ingredients to skillet and stir well.
  3. Cook until all liquid is absorbed and sweet potatoes are cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  4. Add more broth if it’s all absorbed and potatoes are not cooked.
  5. Continue to cook for 5 minutes.

Notes

This can also be made with ground beef, lamb, or anything else that tickles your fancy. If you've reintroduced eggs into your diet, adding a fried egg on top is delicious!

Besides my Mardi Gras Breakfast Sausage Skillet, I make sure to batch cook lots of chicken breasts and thighs, baked sweet potatoes, and some leafy greens, like kale, spinach, and cabbage.  It’s also helpful to do some food prepping.  You can chop all or most of your vegetables for the week, and store them in Mason jars, in the fridge. I bought this wonderful food chopper that I use to chop radishes, red onions, cucumber, and any other veggies I need.  Then, I put them in my jars for when I need them to make my lunch salads or dinners.  Usually a small jarful will last for 5 days or more.  I also store my chopped kale and lettuce this way, too.  I keep those in large jars.  All you have to do is pull out the jars you need….and, boom….you’ve got a salad in minutes.

Batch Cooking

Trust me, time is a precious commodity.  Planning, prepping and batch cooking your meals can help save you time.  I usually do this twice a week, once at the beginning, and again before the weekend. Now I don’t have to worry about standing in front of the stove after I’ve done what feels like a million squats. It’s well worth it!

As always, I wish you good health………and, good food!

No More Excuses! It’s Time To Heal Yourself!

No More Excuses! It’s Time To Heal Yourself!

When people find out how I eat, I usually get one of two reactions. The most common reaction is typically an attack against me. People will say things to me like, “How can you eat like that?!” “I’d rather die happy than eat like that!”, or “That’s such a pain in the butt (cleaned that up for you)!”. The other reaction is excuses like, “ I should eat healthier, but……(insert excuse here).”, “My condition is different. I don’t think that would help me.”, or “ I’m not willing to give up ________ because I don’t believe it’s hurting me.” This list could go on forever! I really think I’ve heard it all.
