Creamy Pesto Chicken Salad

July 29 dinner, c/o my kitchen.

Another creation from The Paleo Kitchen. This is actually three recipes in one! First, I made their Pistachio Pesto. Then their take on 30-Second Mayo (it calls for avocado oil which is an interesting twist!). Then finally the shredded chicken, which was leftover from the Lemon Rosemary Roasted Chicken I made on Sunday. 

This was really good! Though I have to admit, I was a little burpy afterward and the garlic and onion it called for made that an unhappy situation at the gym. Sorry, fellow gym goers.

Coffee Pecan Ice Cream
August 3 dessert, c/o my kitchen.
Recipe from The Paleo Kitchen. This was prepped the night prior when I realized - hooray! - I had all the ingredients needed to make a dessert! Then I realized - boooo! - that I needed to chill it way longer than I had time for before going to bed.
So I had to wait…but it was worth it! The vanilla extract it called for was homemade, thanks to a gift from my friend Erin. Yum! I love that I finally got to use it! I used decaf coffee to avoid any late night buzzes. Also, I added in salt when I was mixing in the pecans. I think if I make it again, I may just buy salted pecans to eliminate the step. The salt definitely gave it something extra: salty + sweet = perfection.

Asian Cabbage Slaw Pork Burgers + Sweet Potato

August 3 dinner, c/o my kitchen.

Another recipe from The Paleo Kitchen. The recipe calls for the burgers to be cooked on the grill so I did mine in a cast iron skillet. While the slaw was quite good, I was underwhelmed by the ho-hum-ness of the burger. Perhaps I cooked it too long? I needed more of a sear on it than it got and it was just dense and pedestrian. Will definitely make the slaw again, though! The bacon was leftover from brunch earlier in the day - it was a saving grace for the burger!

Machete fencing during capoeira class! Our capoeira class is enriched by studying other fighting arts of the African diaspora. Capoeira use to have a weapon component. This is our way of walking the path of the old mestres whose art had to be functional not in the abstract but the actual…
