Paleo Chicken Lo-Mein

Ingredients: 

  • 1-2 Cups Shredded Chicken
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Almonds
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Green Onion
  • 1/2 Cup Mushroom (SHIITAKE)
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1/4 Cup Celery, Chopped
  • 2 Cups Broccoli or Cauliflower
  • 2 Cups Shredded Cabbage
  • 1 Tablespoon Ginger, Minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Avocado oil or Coconut oil
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Coconut Aminos
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut broccoli and mushrooms into bite sized pieces and cook and shred chicken.
  2. Thinly slice 2 cups of cabbage.
  3. Chop almonds, green onion, celery.
  4. Mince or chop garlic and ginger.
  5. We recommend cooking slower and on low heat.*
  6. Add avocado oil or coconut oil, then add meat if you do not already have it cooked. Cook meat to desired cooking style.
  7. Add in broccoli, celery and mushrooms and cook at a low heat.
  8. Add in almonds, cabbage, ginger, green onion and garlic and coconut aminos.** Cook for 2-3 minutes over low heat, until cabbage softens.
  9. Serve over cauliflower rice or quinoa or enjoy it alone!

 

Tips:

* Cooking slower and with low heat may take more time but this will likely form less AGE’s, which have been linked to aging, inflammation, and cancer.

** We recommend avoiding soy sauce and switching it out for coconut aminos, which tastes just like soy sauce!

Homemade Keto Crackers

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 20 mins
Total: 35 mins
Yield: 12 small crackers

 

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup sesame seeds
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp pink salt
  • 2 tbsps. of filtered water

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Place the sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt in a high-powered blender or food processor and blend until the mixture takes on the consistency of flour.
  • While the blender or food processor is running, drizzle in the water until the mixture takes on the consistency of dough and clumps together into a ball.
  • Transfer the dough to a 14-inch-square piece of parchment paper and place an equal-size sheet on top of it. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough as thin as you like (if it’s on the thicker side, say ¼ inch, the crackers will be much sturdier).
  • Remove the top sheet of parchment paper and transfer the rolled dough, still on the bottom sheet of parchment, to a baking sheet. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the dough into rectangles, but do not separate the rectangles.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool completely on the baking sheet.
  • Break up the crackers into rectangles. Serve or store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
