Fake It Till You Make It: Oven Beef Skewers


One thing I have always really enjoyed is ‘shish kebabs’. There is just something about meat on a stick, LOL! But really, they are great. Unfortunately though, I am an apartment dweller. I’m betting that a lot of my younger readers are as well! Apartment living seems to be very normal for us twenty something’s. Anyways, apartment dwelling = no barbeque in a lot of cases. It is a SHAME! I hate not having a BBQ, but what can you do?

Make kebabs in the oven, for one thing. Yes, it is possible! And yes, they will still taste delicious, promise J All you need is an oven with a broiler option, which I’m pretty sure every oven has! These are simple and delicious. And a great way to get those vegetables in, seeing as you need to eat them to get to the meat! They are very customisable as well, which I really like. My boyfriend doesn’t like zucchini so I just skipped it on his skewer. More for me, muahaha!


The other good thing is that on a baking sheet the meat juices sort of leak onto the vegetables and oh my god, they taste sooo good. Especially the cherry tomatoes! NOM! That’s all I have to say about that: NOM. I wish I could have another beef skewer right now! Serve these up with a Greek salad on the side for a real treat, or just eat them as they are! A kebab with steak and vegetables on it is a great mix of protein, fat, and carbs!



Bamboo Skewers soaked for 30 minutes in water to avoid burning

2 Steaks

1 bell pepper (I used yellow)

1 red onion

1 package cherry tomatoes

2 zucchinis

Paleo-friendly steak seasoning (gluten free, soy free, etc)


  1. Pre-soak the skewers in water to make sure they don’t light a fire in your oven! Preheat the oven to the broiler settings.
  2. Cut up the steak into 1 inch pieces and trim the fat off for more even chunks. Season with the seasoning of your choice.
  3. Cut all veggies into 1 inch pieces. Arrange the veggies and steak onto skewers alternating between vegetables and meat.
  4. place on a cookie sheet with parchment paper to avoid sticking. Cook in the oven for 8 minutes, and then flip and cook for another 7 – 8 mins. The steak will stay juicy but it will also get a nice browning from the broiler.

That’s it! These are so good. My boyfriend and I LOVED them! When they were cooking in the oven it smelt like I was making pizza! I think it’s because the tomatoes were cooking down in such a delicious fashion. I can’t wait to start making more things on skewers! It’s fun and convenient. I actually ate mine standing up by the oven about 5 minutes after finishing a brutal workout. Now that was satisfying! It’s also nice to pretend you have a barbeque, even if only for one day!

Gluten Free Beef Stew


First of all, if you love stew, you will adore this one. Just gonna put it out there. You might even want to skip to the recipe RIGHT NOW!

Second of all, if you don’t think potatoes are paleo, I don’t blame you. Just swap ‘em with sweet potatoes or maybe some parsnips and still make this, because its great! Continue reading

Eat your Kraut!–Steak and Bacon ‘scramble’ with Sauerkraut

In all of the research and learning I’ve been doing in the past two weeks since becoming paleo, I’ve heard a LOT about probiotics. In fact, I heard a lot about probiotics even before ever coming to paleo! Everyone want’s a healthy gut with immune boosting buddies inside, right?


Well, truth be told, I hadn’t been getting much healthy bacteria before this switch. I would guess my occasional kombucha and daily greek yogurt were my only sources. In fact, before this very morning, I had never even tried sauerkraut. Ever. And truth be told, first bite in, I wasn’t sure ‘kraut was for me!


Organic and local, can’t do much better than that! I found this at my local Rainbowfoods in the refrigerator next to bubbies! This one was more expensive but for my first try

I decided my best play was to make something really yummy to eat with it. I did look into cooking with it but learned that my hunch was correct, and most of the benefits are lost if you start cooking with the stuff. Instead I kept it raw and used it sort of as a condiment to my meat and veg stir-fry/scramble. Meat and veggie stir fries are becoming a new favourite for me!


This one consisted of 2 slices of bacon, my leftover steak chopped up into little pieces, 1/2 a white onion, and a whole zucchini, thinly sliced. I sauteed them up in butter and a splash of balsamic vinegar for ultimate yumminess until everything was wilted and heated and gorgeous and delicious!


I then proceeded to devour this, mixing a bite of sauerkraut with a bite of the stir fry. Guess what…delicious! I actually ended up doubling my serving. YAY! I can find ways to eat this darn stuff :) That is a relief! So if you are afraid to try it out, here are a few tips from one newbie to another:

1) DONT COOK IT! You don’t want to be eating this stuff for nothing now do you?

2) Have on the side of something you really enjoy. Bacon was a way to guarantee tastiness. You can’t go wrong!

3) Don’t give up! I tried it plain first and thought “oh darn, I really have wasted my money this time”, but now that I’ve found a way to enjoy it, I’m really glad I bought it!

I’ll be searching for more ways to eat kraut in the future. I may even need to make a probiotic pin board on my pinterest page.

Beef and Broccoli ‘scramble’


Apparently  I really like posting my breakfast, huh? I guess it’s just because right now in Canada, the only meal guaranteed to have good natural lighting is breakfast! This yummy meat and broccoli scramble could be eaten at any time of the day though! I made this when I wanted scrambled eggs but I felt like I had been eating a bit too much of them lately.


Another Ridiculously easy recipe from my heart to yours.

1 leftover steak (mine was teeny)
1 leftover sausage patty (mine is from the make it paleo cookbook)
1 1/2 c frozen broccoli
1/2 small onion, diced
pepper for seasoning
coconut oil for sautéing

Start the broccoli in the pan with the coconut oil on low heat.
Chop up your onion and add that in.
Slice up your meat into bite sized pieces
Sautee it all in a pan over medium until it’s heated throughout. 
Eat your delicious and easy meal!
