Paleo Chicken Enchiladas

We eat a lot of Mexican food. We can’t help ourselves. I’ve realized that its just what happens when people are living in another country that has such different foods from your own. When you find yourself surrounded by a local diet that has a limited number of combinations (most of which containing peanut butter…

Paleo Bagels

We just had a team come through Uganda. They were such a blessing to us and to the Ugandans that we work with! One thing I found that particularly blesses long-term workers is that we get to treat the short term team like a team of pack mules. ūüėČ Fortunately, they didn’t need those extra…

Paleo Sweet-n-Spicy BBQ Sauce

We're super excited to be growing our family and I'm looking forward to actually seeing a real bump instead of bloat (another common…

Paleo Wraps

I've been trying to use it more often than coconut flour, the other paleo-eaters staples, since I can actually find it here and not have to have it shipped from America. They do not grow coconuts in Uganda nor do…

Cassava Flour Crusted Tilapia with Avocado Cream Sauce

Ok, so I know that the fish of choice for almost everyone is either Salmon or Tuna…. but we just don’t have those in Uganda.¬†So Tilapia¬†its as close as I can get since I CANNOT get a hold of any of those amazing Omega-3 filled cold water fish. At least I know that our Tilapia¬†aren’t…
