“M” & “C” – Mango Black Bean Chicken

I had every intention of using this recipe as taco and make it completely different but when I started cutting the chicken I got inspired and wanted to use up some of the ingredients that were in the refrigerator.  It was pretty quick and REALLY easy to make.  When i do my next Whole 30 I plan to change the recipe a bit removing a couple ingredients and adding a few others.

“P” is for Paleo Pizza

This past weekend I wanted to venture out of my recent comforts of food and make a paleo pizza for my husband and I.  I knew I was going to keep it dairy free, gluten free, and aside from a little corn on top it is paleo.  I spent a little bit of time online researching different recipes to see what I wanted to include and not include in my dough.  I already knew it wasn’t going to be a “traditional” pizza because I am trying to avoid dairy as much as possible.
