Clever name, eh? Not really. There is no longer any item on the planet that is truly Paleo because guess what: nature evolves. At any rate, let's go ahead and say that this blog is about CLEAN, non-processed recipes that might sometimes be called Paleo by some people. Enjoy!

Chicken Burger on top of Grilled Romaine
OK so this is really easy. For the grilled romaine, which has become our new "go to" salad base, simply drizzle a bit of your favorite oil over some washed romaine leaves. Then season with sea salt, ground pepper, maybe some garlic, if you have a dried salad dressing mix that'd work perfect. Then place directly on the grill for about 2-3 minutes each side. The ends will become slightly browned and that's when you want to take it off. If you leave it on too long the ends will simply dissolve away. If you cook it just right the leaves will have a magnificent taste and the stems will be slightly cooked and softer than raw. They get sweet(ish). For the chicken burger, you mix ground chicken, chopped roasted red peppers, if you like add a little hearty tasting cheese like gouda, sea salt, ground pepper. Form patties and grill until cooked through. Alternatively, Costco has organic, gluten free, preservative free chicken patties for sale (10 patties for about $5). Either way your golden and you've got yourself one heckuva nice lunch. I drizzled my romaine with a little coconut oil, just for good measure ;-) and served the whole dish with a nice glass of coconut milk.
