A week of paleo dinners

This is the paleo equivalent to a chicken enchilada. I have my own paleo enchilada sauce on the left, and some green peppers and a chicken thigh on the right. I cooked the chicken in a mixture of chili powder and coconut aminos with a dash of cayenne pepper. It was delicious. Husband liked it too!

Below we have husband's birthday dinner. I cooked steak in the crock pot with chili powder and garlic on top of a sweet potato. I put some mushrooms and green beans on top of the steak and cooked it for 5 hours on low. I added some nutritional yeast to the veggies,and made these carrot cake cookies as desert. Carrot cake is husband's favorite!

This was my own creation. It's hamburger bacon bark, made with leftovers in the fridge and served with a pickle. This is amazing, and husband has asked me to be sure to make it again! I took half a large zucchini (shredded), half a pack of ground beef, three strips of already-cooekd bacon, a dash of coconut aminos, a pinch of pepper and salt, and two eggs. I mixed them all together and baked flat on parchement paper covered pan at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes. Perfection.

Mexican stir fry with vegan sour cream. Onion, green pepper, loads of garlic with chicken thighs spiced with cumin. I covered it in Muir Glen organic salsa of course!

Paleo sweet potato chili. This is a crock pot recipee. I put half a package ground beef, two cans of  Muir Glen Organic Diced Tomatoes, two large sweet potatoes, half an onion, a bunch of garlic, one cup chicken stock, and 4 tablespoons of chili powder into a crock pot and cooked on low for 6 hours. It was amazing.

Sometimes I just have to have pizza. This is Simple Mills Pizza Dough mix topped with organic spaghetti sauce (works in a pinch for pizza sauce), organic no preservative pepperoni, artichokes and my favorite banana peppers. More sauce for dipping. I looooooveeeee Simple Mills products. They are expensive, but for a spurge...totally worth it. 

What kinds of dinners do you guys eat a week? What do you think of paleo food? Honestly, I love to eat!
