Pork Tongue Tacos

Spicy Pork Tongue Tacos with Cilantro Avocado Creme

“Pork tongue” tacos may not sound all that appetizing to you. I get that. Kind of. Don’t be afraid, though. Shredded tongue is the BOMB. Trust me!

I made these tacos to fill a void in my life. You see, there’s this small taco and burrito shop called Romo’s in Fargo that my partner and I frequent. Now, having never been to Mexico or certain other southern states, I can’t really say I’ve ever had authentic Mexican…however, my partner claims that this taco shop has the best and most authentic Mexican meat in town. We actually prefer this place over Chipotle, which just opened in Fargo – it’s cheaper, we get more food, and it tastes phenomenal.

When we first went to Romo’s, I spotted beef tongue on the menu and knew I had to try it. I love being adventurous in regards to food. (If only I could apply that zeal to other parts of my life. Ah, well.)

So anyway, I tried the shredded beef tongue and absolutely fell in love. Salty, spicy, not dry at all…oh man, I still have dreams about this stuff. For a few weeks, we frequented Romo’s and I got the beef tongue every time.

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

Bacon-wrapped asparagus is one of those foods that is so incredibly simple it’s almost a scandal to call it a recipe. But here it is.

I’m really starting to re-discover and re-love super simple recipes. Simple food is so, so good!

And what might be simple to me might not be to everyone, so I’ve been working on compiling the simple things I make and sharing them with all of you, in the hopes that it makes your mealtimes simple but flavorful and awesome.

First up is these bacon-wrapped asparagus. Two ingredients. Unending awesome.

Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein

Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein

I love how versatile food can be. Seriously, real food can be so, so simple, but it can also be used for a never-ending variety of meals. I’ve recently discovered how versatile spaghetti squash can be. Case in point: Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein.

This recipe makes a lot of food, which is always awesome because then you get to use the leftovers. And let me tell ya, the leftovers are almost better than the original recipe. Don’t you just love when food tastes better the second time around?! Obviously, this would pair extremely well with my Eggroll in a Bowl, and that makes an equally epic amount of food.

Chunky Monkey Chia Pudding with Pure7 Chocolate

Chunky Monkey Chia Pudding + Pure7 Chocolate Amazingness

I’m going to be totally up front. I actually really hate the term “Chunky Monkey”. I don’t understand at all why the terms “chunky” and “monkey” apply to food…it doesn’t sound appealing at all. But, to be fair, it is an easily recognizable way to describe a food that has banana and peanut butter and possibly chocolate. And can you imagine how long the title of this post would be if I had to type all that out? So, this delicious breakfast/snack/treat is Chunky Monkey Chia Pudding.

Butter Coffee and Beyond: My #NutButterInAvo Obsession

Hey, you! Glad you’re here. Sit down. Let’s take some time to unwind. I’ll whip up a butter coffee for you and we can chat!

I’m introducing something brand new to the blog! Butter Coffee and Beyond! It’s really the first ongoing series here at Do You Even Paleo.

Butter Coffee and Beyond | DoYouEvenPaleo.net

 

Doesn’t the graphic for it look awesome? I’m super excited to make this a thing. What will Butter Coffee and Beyond be? Well, the posts will be more lifestyle-centric. Not as much focus on recipes, but it might feature my favorite snacks, CrossFit stories, paleo/gluten free products, the stuff I’m doing to stay happy and healthy beyond food.

I would also like Butter Coffee and Beyond to create more of a conversation between you and me. I named the series Butter Coffee and Beyond because I think the best conversations happen over coffee (or, if you don’t do caffeine…tea, hot chocolate, kombucha, whatever). When you’re sharing a delicious beverage with someone, you each tend to open up and grow closer. I hope I’m at least somewhat able to replicate that cozy, personal atmosphere of a small local coffee shop.
