Peleo Recipe LInk list Part One

I have recently lost enough weight that I am finally in the "healthy" weight range. I spent 10 years being obese and then 2 years in the overweight range.

This year I changed my eating habits to closely follow a Paleo themed eating regimen. I won't go into the description all that much, there is a TON of info online, but I will say I started with a 30 day eating plan outlined on Whole 30. This was tremendously successful for me, and as soon as I see any weight creeping back up, I immediately revert to this very strict eating.

Anyhoo, I wanted to post a list of recipe links that would work for anyone. No need to be trying to lose weight- these recipes are chock full of healthy ingredients and are delicious.

Because I have so many in my rotation, I will break them up into different posts.

Let's start with chicken shall we?

Crockpot Chicken Carnitas
Whole Roasted Chicken
Warm Chicken and Bacon Green Salad
Mexican Crock Pot Stew
Chicken Almond Mole
Best Chicken Fajitas
PiƱa Colada Chicken and Calypso Confetti Cauliflower

Special Notes: I have had to substitute seasoning quite a bit because of the lack of seasoning available in Ecuador. However, these recipes are tasty enough they stand up to adjustments.

All of these recipes are either kid approved or kid tolerated, with the exception of the Chicken Almond Mole which they found to be too spicy. This would be easily adjusted, except for the fact that this is Dustan's and my favorite recipe written as is. I refuse to adjust the heat, because I am cruel that way. They eat fried bologna when I serve this meal.

The Best chicken Fajitas Ever, are another all-time favorite.

There are several recipes out there that I have NOT included. This is either because we have not tried them yet, or because they did not work for our family. If you try a chicken recipe that is grain free and dairy free that you think I would like, please post the recipe or a link to the recipe in my comment section. As I add new recipes to my rotation, I will come back and add them here.
