In my last post, I made chocolate chip pancake muffins. Since I had some pancake batter left over, I thought I’d try another flavor. I had some ripe peaches, so this recipe for peach crumble pancake muffins was born.

Even though this recipe is just as easy as the chocolate chip, it has a few extra steps. I added fresh chopped peach and a bit of nutmeg to the pancake batter. I then topped the uncooked muffins with crumble, which is flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter. They were baked for 20 minutes and they were ready to be devoured.

Enjoy!

On my resent visit to the doctor’s, I was told that my iron and vitamin D levels are low. She “suggested” that I try the “paleo diet.” I’m sure you all know what it is by now. Everyone is doing it or talking about it, so I’m not going to explain. She feels that it will force me to eat more protein. Also, with some resent health issues, it might be a good idea to cut our sugar. I laughed at the absurdity!! How dare she tell an Italian girl to stop eating pasta & Nutella!!! She’s irrational!

As irrational as I may think she is, it’s something I need to do. I need to find out if this will help my health issues. I figure if I eat paleo at least 80-90% of the time, I’m still ahead of the game. Because of this change in my diet, you may on occasion find recipes posted on Diva Eats World that are paleo friendly, like this one.

The mango salsa is a great summertime dish. I love it paired with seafood, pork or as a dip. Since my husband isn’t eating paleo, I made him a side of coconut rice! It was all yummy!

Enjoy!

Cherry-Nut Mudslide Cookies have rich, fudgy center with a slightly crisp outside. They’re full of dried cherries that bring a nice tartness to the cookies. They’re also packed with salted pistachios and toasted hazelnuts. These cookies are keepers.

SUMMER HARVEST SALAD (paleo friendly)

July 14th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink


There’s nothing better than to take advantage of the seasons fruits and veggies at their peak. For lunch during the summer months, I love to make simple salads with these gifts from the Earth. Today, I put together cucumber, orange bell pepper, green beans, shaved golden, & red beets along with peaches, blueberries & sliced figs for a crunchy, sweet, fresh lunch. I made a simple lemon vinaigrette, I added mint and pink peppercorns for extra zip. It was a perfect meal for this hot summer day.
Enjoy!
