well I love chili and I love Buffalo wings!! So I have an awesome "not so paleo" recipe! While I did not consume grain, some frown upon the use of legumes. I personally eat them every so often as long as I adhere to the rest of my paleo regime! So it says buffalo chicken right? WELLLLLL all the market had was Jenni-0 ground turkey so alas for the purpose of these photos I used ground turkey however ground chicken is the normal ingredient. It was still delish. My daughter took one lick and was like uh no. However, she is only 4 so I don't expect miracles. The irony is, I really shouldn't have made chili. It was stupid of me after the events that unfolded yesterday.
Have you ever been so sick that you shat yourself? Yeah well that literally happened yesterday. It was a chilly Sunday at home with the family, hanging out on the sofa, watching a movie. We had some chicken wings (paleo woot). All of a sudden, I tell my husband "oh man Im not feeling well". Then as if I were in a slow motion action movie, My body was doing things it shouldn't. In my head, I was thinking oh no! Maybe it's just a little fart and it's really just too hot from the hot wings lol!. Seriously that is what I was thinking. I didn't shart, I didn't even Fart. I just thought perhaps one escaped me. Then all of a sudden out loud I said. OH MY GOD IT's not WARM it's WET!!!!!!!! I jumped up and ran to the bathroom, my husband was yelling what what? He looks over and on my cushion.......................................Diarrhea. I shat myself! He was rolling around the living room floor laughing! I was crying, begging him to bring me trash bags because my clothes needed to be tossed away. I was not going to attempt to wash them. Why you ask? it was down to the ankles kind of stuff. Had it not been for the elastic in my sweatpants around the ankles, I would have had shit streaks across my carpet. My 4 year old daughter comes trucking into the bathroom to check out the big ordeal. I asked her if she could rub my belly since it hurt , she promptly said no, you might poop your pants again. LOL God I love that kid! Sooo here I am the shitty pants paleo blogger.... Today my poor dog, got sick and I do NOT do vomit well! I don't. So as I am trying to rub her belly and clean up her vomit, I pulled my shirt up over my nose. Well we all know that doesn't work! I vomited down my shirt. Fun TIMES have been had these last 2 days! So clearly as you can see, I really should not have made nor ate chili today but I did! Lest we all pray that I do not explode tonight.
Now for the recipe! Easy peasy lemon Squeezy. You have two options.... Do all of this on a dutch over and simmer for 2 hours. OR cook the ground chicken and toss it in a crock pot on low for 6-8 or high for 4.
2lbs ground chicken (or turkey)
2 cans of Black beans Low or no sodium
1 can of chili beans
16 oz of Tomato Sauce (NOT pasta sauce just the plain tomato sauce in a big can).
2 tbsp of tomato paste
1/2-1 cup of Franks Red Hot or other buffalo wing sauce you prefer to spice level
you can use 1/2 of a chili seasoning packet if you wish. but I personally use the following
1tsp chili powder
1tsp garlic powder
1tsp sea salt
1tsp black pepper
Pre cook your ground meat...
then take the cooked meat and all of the other ingredients and mix together in a crock pot or dutch oven!
cook on simmer for 2 hours on the stove top or low in the crock for 6-8 or high for 4. You can top with sour cream or cheese. I personally used crumbled blue cheese on top! It was AMAZING

Sweet Potato Fritters!! AMAZING!!! Quick and easy, healthy and great on the calories. I use this website called Myfitnesspal and I type in all of my recipes to get the calorie count etc. If you use myfitnesspal, find me !! PatrioticPeacock
These will be soft but I offer a firmer textured additive to the recipe.
What you will need is:
4 baked sweet potatoes (I wrap in foil after rinsing and poking holes and bake until soft).
1/2 cup of frozen corn
2 green onions sliced thing
1 cup of diced cilantro
Pepper to taste
1/2 tsp cumin or ground clove
1 large egg
(IF YOU ARENT Paleo and wish to have a firmer fritter you can add 1 cup of bread crumbs and 1/3 cup of corn meal).
mix it all up!
Heat a skillet until it's screaming hot and then lower down to medium heat.
Add a tbsp of butter (unsalted) and a squirt of olive oil to keep the butter from burning.
Spoon out even amounts of the mixture and put in the pan and press into a patty shape. You want to cook it about 5 minutes and then gently flip..they are soft since there isnt any grain flour etc to bind it firmer (unless you are using the non paleo version). and cook some more on the other side..like so
Voilla!! DONE! you can serve it with some sour cream or greek yogurt if you wish!.. I served mine plain to my daughter and for us adults, I served with a little Salsa Verde mixed with a smidge of sour cream.
here is what they look like on my daughter's plate and ours..
Served with a roasted boneless pork loin! AMAZING!! it was a big hit and always is in our family!

Who doesn't love an enchilada? I know I DO!!!! However, I don't eat corn tortilla or flour tortilla so I felt like I was missing out then BAM!! a friend gave me the idea of a green enchilada but I had to tweak it to fit my Paleo needs, cut out a couple of things like the tortilla and cheese (I will add those options for you though). This was such a huge hit! I think we ate the entire pan between 3 of us for Dinner and lunch the next day and it's literally guilt free!
Here is what you need for Ingredients!!
so it's almost the same ingredients as my Salsa verde.
2 lbs of chicken breast prebaked and seasoned simply with salt and pepper (shredded when cooked and set aside).
two very ripe Avocados
8 medium tomatillos
3-4 jalapeno depending on your heat level
1 cup of cilantro
Optional: 16oz light Sour Cream
Peel, wash and slice your Tomatillos in half.... line them cut side down on a foiled cookie sheet and broil in the oven for about 5-10 minutes until they get soft and start to char on top.
When they are cooked simply toss all of your ingredients into a blender or food processor. I personally use a Ninja Blender! I think it's the best thing out there! Blend until it's an even consistency and looks like this. (if you are desiring a more creamy sauce and aren't concerned with dairy, then toss in your sour cream..greek yogurt will do too, before you blend).
Now that the sauce is done! you have a couple of options..
Paleo way: Spray a casserole dish (I have an olive oil mister)....then toss in your shredded chicken and pour the sauce on top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Serve and enjoy!!!
Non-Paleo way..... spray a casserole dish... Take your tortilla and spread some sauce on, put some chicken and roll it and lay it in the pan....continue this until the enchiladas are touching side by side until the pan is full. Pour the remaining sauce On the Enchiladas and bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
Sadly, I do not have a finished product picture because we ate it and I forgot lol!!

Well it's been awhile and I apologize for that!! I had suffered a traumatic spinal injury in a fall and actually broke my back, ruptured 3 discs! It's been rough but I am finally back on my feet and feeling really well. I'm not in any pain anymore and I can start working out again!! So I am back at the weight loss, health and wellness grind with my amazing Paleo meal plan, Xtreme 5000 and ACE, my Saba Fit Kit workout routine (no gym required all the equiptment you need and video is in this kit check out www.sabaforlife.com/PatrioticPeacock ).
One of my most favorite snacks is Salsa Verde!! It's sooo low in calories, only 25 calories per serving. This recipe makes about 10 servings (very generous). When you eat it, it almost feels like a guilty pleasure, it's so tasty and so addictive. I put it on meat or chicken or even use raw veg like peppers and dip and scoop it! If you AREN't Paloe and eat Tostitos, the lime ones are AMAZING with my Salsa Verde. It's fast and easy to make and sure to be a hit!
8 medium/Large Tomatillos
3 raw Jalapeno
1/3 a medium Sweet Onion
1 cup cilantro raw
2 tbsp Agave
1 tsp of salt
Peel and slice your Tomatillos. You do want to wash them after you peel them if you have never worked with them before because they can be sticky from the skin leaves on them. Next lay them cut side down on a foil lined cookie sheet....
Slice your jalapenos the long way and take out the seeds. put them along the cookie sheet as well with the tomatillo
Turn on your broiler in the oven and broil them until they start to char on the top and get soft. usually about 5-10 minutes (keep an eye on them). The end result will look like this...
Next you want to take the cooked Tomatillo and Jalapeno and put in a blender. I personally use a Ninja because it blends so well from salsa to frozen fruit smoothies!
Toss in your :
Cup of diced Cilantro
Half of sweet onion (I personally just cut it in big chunks because the ninja will do the job for you)
and squeeze the two limes into the blender like so...I also use a fork.. You stick the fork in the half of lime and squeeze and twist..it helps get the most juice out (random tip if you didnt know).
I also put in Agave. I like to keep things sugar free and paleo the best I can but if you eat sugar you can substitute the agave for white granulated sugar.
Turn on that blender to puree and let it go!!!! that is it!! once everything is the same consistency and no big chunks, you are done!! you can chill or serve right away. Here is the gorgeous green color! Amazing and an example of how I incorporate it in a meal (roasted chicken, lima beans sauteed with bacon and jalapeno).
Give it a try, tell me what you think and please feel free to share on FB or Twitter! I appreciate it!!
Peace love and Paleo!

I love Mayonnaise!! I'm picky! My mama raised me right and you don't buy cheap mayo! If you can't have Cains (it's a northern brand we can't get in texas) then Hellman's Light is the next best thing! HOWEVER it's not paleo friendly so I have been doing without mayo. It makes me sad, I love mayo on my burgers, in chicken salad, deviled eggs, crab salad, oh heck I can go on all day about the love of a good mayo! I've missed having those staples in my life but I found that I CAN have mayo, I just need to not use vegetable oil or corn oil, none of those blends. Instead I can use Avocado oil and guess what? I love it far better than the brands I grew up on!! My daughter likes it on her burger woot! she knows what's good! The dips you can make or creamy spicy mustards and sauces for a veggie platter swoon! My daughter loves cucumbers and raw green peppers so for her to have a dip is great! She's not a big dipper, she doesn't dip French fries, or her chicken etc but she loves to dip raw veggies!! so I'm stoked to be able to give her a healthy dip without all those chemicals found in regular store bought mayonnaise.
To make the mayo, I recommend that you take out your eggs about an hour or two prior to making so that they are room temperature. It just works better if the egg is the same temp as the oil. Less breaking! Also you can hand whisk it (takes a bit of time) or you can use an immersion blender, vitamix or I personally use my Ninja. It's fast and easy and amazing!!!!!!!!!!! Now there is this great Paleo blogger (Nom Nom) who uses Macadamia Nut oil!!!! She says that has a nice nutty taste so you can try that too if you like that sort of nutty earthy flavor!
Ingredients: (NOTE I ALWAYS DOUBLE THIS RECIPE so we have some in the fridge in a mason jar for later!)1 large egg yolk (room temp) 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard (or you can use dry mustard whichever you have on hand) 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon white vinegar3/4 cup avocado oilDirections:Take your egg yolk and all other ingredients EXCEPT the oil.Put into whichever device you are using, a bowl, a jar, a ninja etc and mix just enough so that the yolk is thick and bright. About 30 seconds by hand, around 10 by machine.
NOW the tricky part!! You want to take 1/4 cup of your avocado oil and slowly pour it in as you are mixing/whisking/blending...... Repeat with the next 1/4 cup........slowly pour as you are mixing.. Then the last 1/4 cup just pour and and mix/whisk!! Voila! you made mayo!, Look how healthy, quick and CHEAP that was!!
Expiration tip....Make this with freshly bought eggs! The mayo only lasts in the fridge about 1 week PAST the expiration date of your eggs!
Ok so long story short. I am not tech savvy. I stupidly upgraded my Iphone in January for a Samsung Galaxy S3 because I just HADDD to have the new technology um well that didn't work out too well because I love all of my YEARS of music and playlists.

In searching for the best tunage options, I stumbled across a secret!! Pandora. Yeah sure you all know what Pandora is but did you know that Pandora has 12 secret work out radio stations? I yes they do! Please and thank you, I will take that!

Vices, we all have them but how many are willing to give them up? I mean give them up FOR GOOD! My husband and I have/had a major vice and I do believe a big set back in our healthy living transformation. No matter how clean we ate, we always ruined it by chugging down a chemical filled Diet Cola (you know the red and blue haha!) OR my personal fav a diet rootbeer. Really though, what is better on a hot day than popping the top on an ICE COLD CAN of frothy goodness? Well by doing that everyday and sometimes 5-6 times a day!! We were being total hypocrites. We eat clean, don't buy processed foods but we used to buy some serious amounts of soda. there were days when I swear that was the only fluid my husband would drink other than a cup of coffee in the morning. what's the point of all that healthy, organic and fresh made food If you are rinsing it down with chemicals?
We quit. As in, Cold turkey, just didn't buy it anymore. We were at the market one day and I said, eh I'm done with soda. I don't need any but if you want to grab some for you then by all means go ahead. I was so proud of the response I got back, he said no!. He decided he didn't want to drink that junk anymore either! To me it was like AHHHHHHHHHHHHH the heavens were singing, the sun was shining those silly little cartoon birds were floating above tweeting joyous tunes! FINALLY, after 10 years, literally 10 years of trying to kick it, the husband was on board!
What we did next was just hold on and stayed strong. It's so easy to just cave when it's all around you. At his job, there are vending machines in his office, at the hospital there are little corner shops inside where he can grab one but Alas he didn't! I'm unbelievably proud of him. We went and bought him a little fridge to stick under his office desk and packed it will water. That other than his coffee in the morning is all he drinks at work, Ice cold, crisp, refreshing water. For me it was really easy, I'm home with our daughter. I'm not tempted by all of the exposure he gets. My job is to raise our little girl, work on my business at home and bring her to her therapy and other appointments. We are constantly running behind so there is never time to just stop and grab a cold one. It was going really well for us!
At home, we enjoy again more water! I do make a decaf unsweetened Ice tea that I brew myself and it's not a prepackaged or powdered concoction. At night instead of a soda, we do enjoy a glass together but that's ok. It's a natural leaf that we steep in water. No chemicals, no sugars, nothing but natural goodness. In the mornings, I pack his lunch, he still has his coffee but I make him a big 1.5liter bottle of water packed with fresh lemon and lime wedges! He loves this after his morning workout and it gives me a chance to really pack in the H2O ounces in his body after a strenuous workout. It has been working well for us. As far as our daughter is concerned, nothing has changed for her. She doesn't drink soda, wasn't allowed. She likes her milk, water or veggie/fruit juice. She's 3, so I still have wonderful control over her beverage choices.
The Epiphany....... It had been about 10 days or so since we kicked the habit and really came clean. Whatever possessed us to stop at a convenience store on the way out of town was beyond me! We stopped and instantaneously we grabbed a couple bottles of the cold fizzy stuff. We didn't even give it a second thought. It truly was a muscle memory response. The years of just running in and grabbing a soda, running out and driving on our way totally just hit play here. As we are driving down the highway, we both crack one open and take a swig. Within seconds we both said UGH, Gag, Ewww that tastes terrible!!!! What the hell were we thinking?????? We had finally come full circle. We had detoxed our addiction and love for this fizzy poison out of our bodies. It tasted terrible, you could just taste how "chemical" and unnatural it was. We ended up having this long conversation during our travels about good lord what were we doing all these years allowing ourselves to ingest so crap!!?!?! It only solidified our resolve to just not drink it again and just keep it real. Real, whole, fresh, healthy, colorful food and beverage. Our ancestors didn't drink soda at the first thanksgiving, the native americans didn't go to war for their land whilst packing a 12 pack of pop. Why should be continue to harm our own bodies on purpose? That was it. Gone in a flash! No more soda in our home or In our lives. We finally successfully removed the last barrier between clean living and TRULY clean living!

Egg cups egg cups egg cups egg cups...how many times can you say that fast?? So before I start with this little diddy on how to make these, I must confess first. I never made them before tonight. I have seen them around here and there, people have talked about them yadda yadda but I never tried them. I'm once again suffering from insomnia and decided why not prep some food for the week! I had 2 dozen eggs, I was already making a frittata and I had some amazing bacon... WHY NOT? well shit they smelled so good that I couldn't wait to eat one. I BURNED MY LIP and tongue! So now I am sitting here nursing a blister on my mouth all in the name of bacon. Would I do it again? YES it's BACON!!!!!!!!!! Anyhow this is the most easy, ridiculous thing you can make that is so grab and go it's insane. It ends all excuses for not having enough time to have a great protein packed breakfast. it would even make a great pre or post workout snack!. It's 3am here in Texas and I'm cooking, so If I can.........anyone can find 20 minutes to do this.
First off, I'm a lazy cook. I don't like messes and well I don't like trying to pry stuff out of pans or other cooking vessels. So here I used a cupcake liner (foil not paper) to make these.
All you need, ARE YOU READY for the crazy stupid easiness ???
1 dozen eggs
12 strips of bacon cut in half
a muffin tin
salt and pepper if you feel so inclined.
THAT"S ALL FOLKS!
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees
Line your muffin tin with your foil cupcake liners.
Take one half of a strip of bacon and lay it down one side of the cup...across the bottom and up the other side........ Now take another half of a strip and do the same thing but on the side of the cupcake liner that doesn't have bacon covering it. it will make a little bacon cup inside the cupcake liner (YES you will double over the bottom of the cup but that's awesome right? TWO layers of bacon on bottom, hell yes please).
NOW for the hard part... Crack one each into each bacon filled cup!
Add some salt/pepper if you wish and bake! for 15-20 minutes! THAT'S IT!
however WARNING!! DO WAIT until it cools before you attempt to eat scolding HOT BACON!!!!!

I love all things breakfast! I can eat breakfast for lunch and dinner everyday! Something about it is just hearty and comforting. One of my favorite breakfast foods is a Frittata!! My daughter calls it egg pie ahaha! Little does she know, how good and nutritious it is for her and protein packed!! A Frittata is a great way to get a good meal that you can plan ahead. Make one the night before and simply reheat or just prep it the night before and pop in the oven the next day. I am personally a lazy morning cook. I do not like to get up in the morning and make anything so if I can do this in advance and make enough for a few mornings of breakfast that you can heat and go then AWESOME Woot that's another 15 minutes at least that I can sleep in before it's time to get up and go. So for my version of an amazingly delish paleo frittata here you go! And remember all of you non-paleo foodies, simply sub out my paleo choices for your fav dairy and fat options.Ingredients
- 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
- 2 Tbsp coconut oil
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 1 sweet onion
- 1/2 cup mushrooms
- 2 Tbsp Cilantro, chopped
- 1 cup chopped protein whether it's bacon, ham etc you use your wildest imagination
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
whisk eggs and milk together
Heat a medium size skillet that is oven safe. I prefer cast iron. Add the coconut oil to the skillet so it can melt
Add Spinach, onions, mushrooms, cilantro and protein and sautee for about 5-6 minutes
when the veggies etc are tender simply pour the egg mixture into the skillet and set the heat on low, cook on low for about 8 minutes
Once it's been on the stovetop for 8 minutes, go ahead and place the skillet into the oven (this is why you want an oven proof skillet so nothing with a rubber handle etc), Cook the frittata for about 15 minutes in the oven at 425
I am guilty of being a ship jumper. I had an iphone since inception. However, I got bored with the technology. I wanted something a little more snazzy and gadgety. So I jumped ship to the Samsung Galaxy S3 back in January. LOVEDDDDDD the phone for a minute. Then came time to get my work out on and I realized MY MUSIC!!!!!! MY YEARS AND YEARS OF MUSIC!!! gone!! My playlists that had been delicately created based on the intensity of my work out and of course my daughter's playlist to let her listen in the car.
The conundrum is that I can't figure out how to put music on my new phone without having to make accounts and buy it all over again. yeah NOT COOL android!! So I was stuck thinking what on earth am I going to do with this????? ALAS! Pandora! They have secret workout stations that have a continuous flow instead of a change in tempo it stays at the pace you want! Thank you sweet baby jesus in a manger! So without further adieu here I present the 12 super secret pump you up workout stations on Pandora!
