This week, I have a couple delicious primal recipes to share that I made this week!
The first is one that I was so excited for when I saw it that I had to make it that day. Does that ever happen to you?
I basically took this recipe, added sautéed kale, and replaced chips with cucumbers, and it was awesome! I am going to call it “awesome dip,” because I think that describes it pretty perfectly!
It was even better reheated the second day!

Next, I have a classic that I thought I should include because it is a Primal favorite – spaghetti squash!
One of the things on my learning curve in switching to Primal eating was learning that in most cases, it wasn’t the carbs that tasted so good, but rather whatever I put on them. So sometimes, I made meat and cheese pasta sauce and just ate that! But eventually, I started eating spaghetti squash instead. Again, like most of my recipes, it is super versatile – you can go crazy with whatever you want when it comes to toppings!
So, for the spaghetti squash itself – cut the squash in half length-wise. Scoop out the guts (the stringy part and the seeds, not the “meat” of the squash) and discard. Put about 1-1.5″ of water in a pan. Put the squash facedown in the water in the pan and cook at about 425 degrees for 30 minutes. Take it out of the oven and let it cool, then use a fork to scrape out and form “noodles.”
Top with whatever you want, and enjoy!
A couple things to note about commercial spaghetti sauce: most of them have sugar or artificial sweeteners added. For this reason, I usually make my own sauce using diced tomatoes (NOT in a can, unless the can is BPA-free), garlic, oregano, thyme, onions, kale, and mushrooms!
So, this time, mine had that (but I didn’t have kale for the sauce) as well as grassfed ground beef and some raw cheese from grassfed cows!
Ok, a lot of cheese!

Like I said, you can top it however you want – the world is your oyster! I have yet to make a chicken alfredo version with mushrooms, but you better believe that is coming on the horizon! Or perhaps a shrimp alfredo during Lent?
