F Summer Beet Salad

Summer Beet Salad, @primaldish

Serves 2:

  • 3 cups of arugula
  • 2 golden beets, boiled until fork tender and diced
  • 4 slices of Whole30 compatible prosciutto, diced
  • 1 cup of strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted and cooled (optional)

Add arugula to a large bowl. On top, evenly spread beets, prosciutto, and strawberries. In a separate small bowl, whisk together olive oil, ACV, and salt to make a dressing. Then add the ACV & olive oil dressing to the salad and combine well. Top with toasted pine nuts (optional). Note: you could also use your favorite oil-based Whole30 compatible dressing instead of the Olive Oil & ACV dressing.

F Meatballs

Orange Teriyaki Meatballs, @AIPlifestyle

  • 2 pounds organic ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 2 tsp orange zest (2 oranges worth)
  • Big pinch salt


  • 2/3 cup fresh orange juice (juice of 2 navel oranges)
  • 2 tsp. grated ginger
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove chopped garlic

In a bowl, mix ground chicken, orange zest, pinch salt and green onions. On a parchment lined cookie sheet, form 2 1/2 inch sized meatballs. Bake at 350 until internal temperature reaches 170 degrees. Mine took about 30 minutes.

In a saucepan, add coconut aminos, grated ginger, garlic, vinegar and fresh orange juice. Bring to a simmer and reduce until sauce coats the back of a spoon. It will simmer for about 10 minutes, and then start to watch it closely. It will start to foam and bubble when it is almost ready. You want the sauce to be the consistency of maple syrup.

When meatballs are cooked, place in a bowl and drizzle with the sauce. Gently toss to coat all the meatballs.

F Cherry Sausages

Cherry Tarragon Breakfast Sausages, @sustainabledish

  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 2 tablespoons diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil for frying

Place the cherries in a bowl of hot water for about 10 minutes to slightly reconstitute them. Combine the onion, parsley, tarragon, salt and pepper in a medium-sized bowl and mix well. Add the cherries when soft, and then add the ground pork. Mix all ingredients well. Form small patties (I usually can fit them in the palm of my hand) and place on a plate. Heat a skillet to medium heat and add some of the coconut oil. Place about 5 to 7 of the patties in the pan. Fry the patties until brown, about 5 minutes. Flip and flatten with the back of your spatula. Cook another 5 minutes or until brown. Test one sausage to make sure the center is completely cooked.
