Easy Sauté Vegetable Salad with Tuna and Italian Dressing

I am really working on staying on track for 2016.  I joined a new gym down here in Florida and it's called Hard Exercise Works (HEW) and I really love it.  It's very similar to my CrossFit workouts and the energy is just amazing.  Another great think about my new gym is it's next to a Fresh Market which I just love and so many other healthy markets.

While walking through the market starting from the produce everything looks fresh, bright and I wanted one of everything.  I started with the fresh greens which was a combination of baby spinach, baby kale and mixed greens, then I saw the fresh mushrooms, asparagus and cherry tomatoes.  I walked over to the prepared section and their tuna looked perfect.  Of course, I was offered a sample and immedialty asked for 1 pound of tuna.  You can make your own but I felt great with the short cut!

You can sauté up any vegetables such as zucchini, red peppers or even eggplant would be a great addition.  I will be grabbing those next stop!  I did make my own dressing so easy and perfect.  I will be using the leftover dressing for a marinade during the week!

Italian Frittata Club Sandwiches

I am known as the "frittata queen".  I love to use up leftover for frittata's or any fresh vegetables and/or meets I have handy.  This recipe was created after my family left from a 7 day visit and we only had eggs/bacon and a few ingredients in the house and I made this sandwich for lunch!  Perfect...

(be sure to check out my Paleo Italian Bread Recipe)

Use my Paleo Italian Rolls for this great sandwich!  I added my Paleo Mayonnaise on each slice as well.

Italian Spiced Egg Salad

I always have fresh veggies in the house and wanted something different to snack on during the day.  You can make this chunky and top a salad or enjoy a good egg salad sandwich. I chopped mine really small and ate as a dip with my veggies.  Egg salad is good anyway or just grab a for and eat it out of the container.  

Enjoy xo Cindy

Paleo Italian Hero

My nana would make a large Italian sandwich for lunch on weekends. She would call it an Airplane- I'm not sure why but it could be because she made enough to be able to serve a full airplane of passengers! We also call this sandwich a hero when it is individual. This was a recipe that I just started to put together with items handy in my pantry.

*CHEFS NOTE* I suggest you enjoy these upon making them. I noticed that one had hardened after sitting on the counter for a while, but I put it in my food processor and created bread crumbs for my chicken parmesan! How brilliant was that?

Thanksgiving Open Faced Paleo Sandwich

First let me apologize!  My future daughter-in-law and I were so excited about making this that we forgot to take photos.  We were enjoying red wine, cooking up left overs and talking about theirs wedding.  My baby will be getting married in 2018 and I just can't believe it!  So, next time I make this we will take photos but until then I hope the recipe is good enough to walk you through.  Believe me it was delicious.  Enjoy xo  Cindy

I really love Thanksgiving!  The best part is having my family together and the kids in the kitchen with me cooking and baking.  We all love the feast enjoyed together!  However, we all talk about left overs during dinner and what we will be doing with the turkey.  

Of course there has to be a turkey pot pie, turkey hash with poached eggs for breakfast and this year I am making this new recipe an Open Faced Paleo Sandwich!
