Bolognese (Paleo)

I was watching the Food Network and someone was making a bolognese sauce and I decided I needed to do that, immediately! I like my bolognese really thick so it’s a meal in itself since I don’t serve it over pasta. I mean, you COULD serve it over pasta, but I chose not to. I chose to serve mine over chicken instead. Haha! Meat sauce on meat!

Bolognese

2 strips bacon
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium carrot, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1/2 medium onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb grass fed ground beef
6-10 oz tomato paste
1 cup water (or more, based on need)
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 Tbsp parsley
salt, pepper, red pepper flake to taste
4 chicken legs (optional)

Render the bacon in a large pan. Set aside and add a little olive oil then saute all the veggies. Once tender but not browned add the ground beef and cook through. Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil then lower heat. Add more water if it gets too thick. Simmer for 10 minutes then add the chicken legs and cover. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through, then remove the chicken legs, shred the meat and add to the sauce (or to the bottom of your bowl and spoon the sauce on top). Chop the bacon and add to the sauce.

Serve in a bowl as is or with pasta or rice.

Enjoy!

Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

This batch lasted me a few days of breakfasts or snacks. The canned coconut milk makes it nice and creamy and the vanilla makes it taste like dessert!

Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

2/3 cup chia seeds
1 can light coconut milk
1 overflowing tsp of vanilla extract
stevia to taste

Mix all together and leave on the counter for 20 minutes, stirring a couple of times. Transfer to the fridge for at least a couple of hours.
