Paleo Recipes: Sweet Potato Fries, Paleo Pizza and Easy Hard-Boiled Eggs

We’re excited to welcome our first guest blogger to CaveGirlSkinCare.com! Heather Seikel is a Registered Nurse (RN), a fitness enthusiast and thrives on a Paleo lifestyle. Heather has kindly shared a few tasty-looking, Paleo friendly recipes with us! 
My husband is the inspiration behind the recipe for Baked Sweet Potato Fries. He is not a sweet potato fan, so finding the perfect seasoning to accentuate not only the color of the sweet potato but also it’s mild flavor was a task he knowingly knew I could handle. To make the flavor experience complete, we both agreed that pairing the fries with Steve’s PaleoGoods Ketchup would make for a perfect mouth full of flavor. 
Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Set Oven to 350 F
1. Cut a large sweet potato into halves lengthwise, and then into thick fries. Keep in mind that the thicker the fries are cut, the longer it will take to bake to get your desired texture.

2. Season raw fry sections, making sure to thoroughly cover, with:
2  tablespoons of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
2 teaspoons coconut sugar or date sugar
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon chili powder

Paleo f(x) Review and Exciting News from the CaveGirl!

image

We are finally settled back in after a very exciting trip to Austin for Paleo f(x). Now that we are back home, we wanted to share some highlights of our trip!

The week leading up to Paleo f(x) had the Primal Life Organics team in overdrive. Despite the fact that we were making large batches of our products to take with us on the trip, designing our display, packing everything, and still making sure all of our orders were made fresh and shipped out, we somehow managed to create three new hair products!

We were very excited to take these new products to Paleo f(x), where we gave them to a few Paleo celebrities! So far, we have gotten good feedback and can’t wait to get these new hair products (100% Paleo of course!) to your doors too! Keep an eye out for the official release of our Primal Sea Salt Spray, Hair Spray, and Hair Serum within the next couple of weeks.

Okay, okay! I know, you want to hear all of the good stuff like who we met, what we loved, and what we learned.

On Thursday Night- I kicked off the event by attending the Pecha Kucha soiree that featured some tasty (and 100% Paleo) Hors d’oerves from Caveman Cafeteria.  Favorites were the Rock Shrimp Ceviche Coconut-Lime Marinade, Candied Bacon House Made with Organic Honey and Stuffed Artichoke Hearts Bruschetta!  Drinks for the evening were from Live Soda Kombucha and my new favorite brew, O mission– gluten free and totally worth it!  The Pale Ale is this Cave Girl’s favorite!  I’m definitely going to enjoy a few of these this summer!!

I was lucky enough to sit next to Elizabeth and Cameron, with EPIC Bars– do not hesitate to try the new Lamb bars!  I thought the Bison and Turkey were great- the Lamb is even better!  I also got to meet Amy Kubal, a Registered “Paleo” Dietitian and the ring leader of Robb Wolfe’s RD consulting team.  Amy has an amazing story to tell about her relationship with food, which you can read here.  It was a “don’t miss” event that I recommend if you get the opportunity to attend Paleo f(x) next year.

New Ingredients You’ll Love

What’s the best thing about new Primal products?! All new, better for you ingredients to love! We’ve packed our newest skincare products with exciting skin foods like fruit extracts, Vitamin C, caffeine and garlic!

Wait? PLO has new stuff?! See what you’ve missed this month.

Diversifying our Diets In this day and age, it’s incredibly difficult to find wholesome skincare products you can trust. PLO ingredients are so closely recognizable to the foods we eat and clay’s we see in our gardens, we’re tempted to eat them!

Fruit Extracts and Vitamin C. A double team of two, new exfoliating facial scrubs and skin polishers will keep your skin looking polished, all night long. Dirty Ex @ Midnight and Dirty Ex Sweet Revenge boast antioxidant protection from natural Vitamin C that helps firm the skin and improve collagen. A fruit blend to rival your breakfast smoothie, (extracts of mango, grapefruit, papaya in @ Midnight and pineapple, apple and guava in Sweet Revenge) will fight breakouts, dry skin, premature aging, inflammation, cellulite and skin discoloration — basically, all you need to make that Ex wonder why he ever left you alone on the dance floor.

Caffeine. No, this probably won’t cure your headaches when you’re cutting back on coffee — BUT caffeine crystals in Dirty Ex @ Midnight and Dirty Ex Sweet Revenge will calm puffiness in your skin and temper those fine lines and wrinkles.

Garlic? We know what you’re thinking, “I can get enough garlic just walking in and out of an Italian restaurant!” As healthy as garlic is for you to eat, it has incredible properties that are also great for your skin. The active properties within garlic make it a wonderfully natural antifungal and antibacterial. Vitamins A and B, organic iodine and sulfur, among others, mix with essential oils in Funki, Primal Life Organics’ Primal Foot Repair to help anyone struggling with post-WOD athlete’s foot.
