Paleo (Grain Free) Hot Breakfast Cereal

instant-pot-chicken-taco-bowls8

So I am integrating grains out of my nutrition plan for the time being to see how I respond and I combined literally four different recipes I found on Pinterest to what I had on hand. I made this on Monday and reheated the second portion today and it was just as good! It has Paleo and Whole 30 compliant ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole raw almonds
  • 3/4 cup whole raw cashews
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1 tbsp clarified butter or olive oil
  • 1 medium apple, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 3/4 c. – 2 cups unsweetened almond milk ( you could use coconut milk)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Instructions

  1. In a quart mason jar, add the nuts and coconut flakes. Add enough filtered water to the jar to cover nuts and coconut by one inch. Add a pinch of salt and cover. Allow the nuts to soak at least 7-8 hours or overnight. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.
  2. Once soaking time is completed, drain the nuts and coconut flakes in a colander; making sure to rinse them well until water runs clear.
  3. Add the nuts and coconut flakes to the bowl of a food processor. Then, add the banana (break the banana in pieces and add to the top of the nuts).
  4. Pulse the nuts and banana mixture until it forms a fine nut meal, making sure to stop and scrape down the bowl as needed for an even texture. Then, remove bowl from food processor and set aside. (Please note: The more you pulse the less texture your oatmeal will have.)
  5. Add oil or butter to a saucepan over medium heat. Add the chopped apple and nutmeg to the pan and sauté the apples until they begin to soften.
  6. Next, add the almond milk, cinnamon and raisins. Then add the banana-nut meal mixture. Stir well to thoroughly combine.
  7. Bring the “cereal” to a gentle simmer and cook for about 5-6 minutes until it’s thick and creamy. Cook a little longer for softer texture. Makes four servings.

Instant Pot Paleo Chili

I have been waiting since Prime Day to pick up and Instant Pot! I snagged one on Black Friday and I think I have used it almost every day! Below is the recipe but first a little cooking demo for you!

Ingredients:
2 lb ground beef
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic gloves, minced
1 small onion, chopped
2 15 oz cans of fire roasted tomotoes
2 cups organic beef stock
3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 T. chili powder
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
2 tsp sea salt
 1 1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp of chipotle powder (optional gives it a kick)
Instructions:
Set instant pot to saute and wait tell it says “hot” THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT
Add  1 tsp of oil then ground beef and brown.
Once beef has browned add onion, garlic and let simmer for a few minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients in.
Stir well.
Seal the lid and set the mode to manual and set for 35 minutes.
NOTE: If you like firmer potatoes do 30 minutes. I did 35 and the next day my sweet potatoes were a little on the soft side
Make sure the valve is set to sealed.
Once done let it “natural release” in warm mode for 10 minutes.
Stir well and serve.

I portioned out a few for lunches and at the rest that night! For more recipes and fit tips join our community HERE
