Food, Fun and Face!

Welcome to my blog! I'm starting this blog to add some spice to some of your kitchens! I follow a primal lifestyle which basically means I eat a whole bunch of vegetables, good meats, some fruit, nuts and seeds and a little dairy. I avoid eating all grains and try not to eat processed food and limit the amount of sugar I throw down my throat. Basically the name of the game is to eat REAL FOOD. Sounds simple right? But sometimes people find it hard to start to eat this way. So this blog is here to help you (and me) throw together some awesome tasty food . So please stay a while and get your creative kitchen juices flowing again!!

Palos Ranchos

It's nearing the end of week 2 of the Spring Clean Challenge at CFNZ and our flat is in full swing of clean eating.

The first week we had a minor blowout of the budget which I'll post up a vid about soon. But this week we have been able to come well under budget.

What I'm learning more and more is that leftovers go a long way.

We were in the kitchen this morning and were going to make some sort of an egg scramble thingy with some left over roast pork from last night when it came to me: Palos Ranchos!

This is my spin on the Mexican dish Huevos rancheros.

It's super simple to make and tastes awesome.

Basically you can throw in any leftovers and veggies you have lying around. There is never a strict ingredients list! Just make sure you get some spices in there to jazz it up.


Leftover meat or bacon
1x medium Onion
Some silver beet or spinach
1 tsp dried Oregano
1 tsp dried Thyme
1 tsp crushed Coriander Seeds
2x Tins crushed Tomatoes
Salt and Pepper

Put a pan on high heat and drop a couple of knobs of butter into it.

Slice up your onion and drop into pan.

Cut up your leftover meat or bacon and add to the pan.

Let that fry away. Season with salt and pepper.

Add your dried spices and crush up the coriander seeds and then add to the pan also.

Give it all a really good stir.

Slice up your silver beet or spinach and then after a couple of minutes add that to the pan.

Give it all a good stir and let it fry for a few minutes.

Then add 2 cans of crushed tomatoes to the mix. For those on a budget we are using Pam's tinned toms as they are only 99 cents a can from Pak n Save.

Give that as good stir and turn the heat down to a medium heat and let the mixture come up to a good simmer.

Then crack your eggs over the top of the mixture in different spots on the pan.

Put a lid on the mixture and let it simmer away for about 5 mins. Depending on how you like your eggs done you can leave it on the stove for longer or less. You choose!
