I have felt like Sleeping Beauty after three weeks traveling around the USA visiting family and friends followed by a rugby tour in Paris complete with an England win at the Womens Rugby World Cup. My body really needs a complete detox however I am only home for a few days before leaving on another bank holiday weekend trip to see the UK family and a friends wedding in “The North”. What I have learned from my travels is that once you domesticate a man you cant leave him alone for too long… I have returned home from 4 weeks travel to a broken sick husband (love those summer colds!) and a fridge that looked like this:
This weeks recipes will be a bit of a mix from online (where available) and recipe books. I love real recipe books but also have bought several on Kindle- in the case I cant find the recipe online for you I will include the book, author and page number for you. Also not all recipes are 100% paleo… after 3 years of education into the paleosphere I have learned what I need to avoid and what I can get away with- so occasionally you will see me cooking with alcohol, a bit of dairy and due to CrossFit and rugby I earn the right to nibble on some gluten-free carbs. HOWEVER after all this traveling and partying I need to clean up my act a bit (lots of dirty habits have gotten in!) so next week you may be getting W30 menu for the next month!
***FYI I grew up in the USA and have lived in the UK for years, you may see me switching between metric and English measurement units and use both words (ex courgette vs zucchini)- I suggest you have a kitchen with both types of measurements to make the best use of online resources!
