Yummy, healthy, comfort food. This simple dish of beans and rice is tasty and helps cleanse the body and heal digestion for all body types. I also love this dish for an easy, healthy, pantry meal I can throw together when I have nothing else in the house. Top with ghee, salt, liquid aminos, or whatever you like. I like lemon pepper, sriracha sauce, and feta cheese.

Mexican Shakshuka

Rating: Unrated
8
This Mexican-inspired shakshuka is a tomato-y one-skillet poached eggs dish that's full of all the flavors you expect from Mexican recipes. Diced tomatoes, onions, and smoked peppers, plus cumin, chili powders and Spanish paprika. And together, they make this one hearty meal to feed a crowd from one skillet. Serve with warmed corn or flour tortillas and butter-fried hominy.

Ground Turkey Taco Meat

This recipe has fewer calories because of the ground turkey and amazing flavor! It is a little spicy, but our family enjoys it this way. Because it has so much flavor, you cannot even tell it's not ground beef. It tastes great as a topping on baked potatoes as well as tacos. Enjoy!

This is a juicy dish and really easy to prepare. I have made these for years and they're still a huge favorite with family and friends. I serve them with mushroom rice and garlic bread. This is a sauceless recipe but the meat is so succulent you don't need it.

This was certainly the hit of the party. I served this paleo pasta primavera with my paleo pork roast loin and it disappeared right in front of me! Keep warm until ready to serve.

Meatballs are one of those foods that really remind me of childhood. Spaghetti and meatballs are definitely one of those 'comfort foods.' Try this simple recipe for your next family dinner or make 1/2 the batch and save the leftovers if you are eating solo. Pour your meatballs and sauce over spiralized zucchini noodles for an ideal paleo meal.

A quick fried rice like you get at your favorite Chinese restaurant. A couple of eggs, baby carrots, peas and soy sauce is all you need.

My mother was one of the best cooks I ever knew. When she made stews we mostly found dumplings in them. We never ate things from packages or microwaves and you sure could taste what food was. That's the only way I cook today - I don't use any electronic gadgets to cook with except an electric stove.

I adore Bavarian cuisine! And since there's no good German food here (while I lived in San Francisco, my husband and I ate at wonderful German/Hungarian restaurants there), I have to make my own...This recipe is crazy simple.

This is a simple, less rich, but very tasty recipe for tuna melts. It's the only tuna melt I make and my husband is a convert from the traditional kind to mine!

A simple spice blend gives tons of flavor to the crispy skin and moist, juicy thigh meat. This is in the oven in just minutes for a delicious (and budget-friendly!) main dish.
