At the core, paleo meals are just protein, veggies and healthy fat. Stir-frys and slow-cooker meals are the simplest ways to get your paleo on.
I could have easily called today’s meal “Lazy Day Paleo Take 2,” but, alas, I didn’t. The variations for this meal are limitless. Just swap out the meat and/or veggies.
Turkey With Veggies
-Crimini Mushrooms, sliced
-Collard Greens, julienned
-Bell Pepper, diced
-Seasonings to taste: garlic powder, Italian Seasoning, salt, pepper
-Parsley, chopped (optional)
-Cooking fat of choice
-Balsamic vinegar (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Season your turkey cutlets. Set aside.
Heat your far of choice in a large skillet. Throw the shallots and mushrooms in the pan and caramelize. Add bell peppers and collard greens. Allow the greens to soften a bit.
Move the veggies so the side of the pan. Place the turkey cutlets in the skillet. Allow them to develop a nice sear. Make sure other side is seasoned before flipping again. You may choose to deglaze your skillet with an acid of some sort. Mix the veggies with the turkey (desegregate your plate) then throw in the oven until turkey is completely cooked.
Enjoy! Dinner’s done.
Variations: Change your meats and veggies. Adjust your seasonings. My bacon-loving friends can add bacon to the veggies. You are only limited by your own imagination. The second photo is most of the same veggies with strips of steak.
