Scalllion Pork Patties with Ginger Sauce

These Burgers

Ya’ll know I love me some burgers… I only have like 10 recipes on the site. They might need their own page soon. These are amazing. The mix is juicy pork patty with little chunks of celery and green onion, perfectly seasoned and fried up to golden perfection. The MCT powder gives them a great mouth feel, almost like they are slightly breaded. 

I like THIS MCT Oil Powder. It’s dairy free and it is great in my coffee and I have even used it in salad dressing. Great thickening agent for those avoiding dairy AND starches! (save 10% with code castaway10)

The ginger sauce is a throw everything in the blender creation that is creamy yet chunky. It’s heavy on the ginger and dare I say a little spicy! The combination together is WOW! This recipe makes a big batch too, so whip these up Sunday and pack them for lunch or re-heat for a quick breakfast. I served these with cauliflower rice for dinner and it was a huge HIT! 

Home At Last! 

Not going to lie, I’m down right giddy! Finally posting a new recipe, on my new website. So exciting. It has been almost 2 month since I have posed a new recipe I think. That’s just nuts. But between traveling in July, the Whole30recipes takeover in September… plus quite a bit of work on the recipe development side… and some other stuff that TOP SECRET for now… it’s been crazy. But now I’m home. The new site is up and running. We’re back to regularly scheduled deliciousness. 

Catching Up

If you follow along on Instagram, you’re hip to my ongoings, mostly because I yammer on Stories quite a bit. I will say that I have really found my groove lately. This low carb paleo/ whole food keto is really working for me. I feel and look better than ever. I LOVE the food. Bonus there are so many folks to help. I get to help people daily with making better food choices and finding what works for them. We’re all so different, but one thing that I know to be true, no matter who you are or where you are is that clean eating has no negative side effects. Whether you go low carb, high carb, AIP or whatever… real food will always be a big, resounding YES in my book.  

I can’t wait to keep creating and sharing with all of you, but most of all, I can’t wait to share all these amazing recipes because at the end of the day, that is want started all of this… my love for cooking combined with my passion for healing through food.
