Cook smarter, not harder with Steph Gaudreau!

Steph Gaudreau is one of my favorite paleo bloggers! She runs the blog Stupid Easy Paleo and she is great at bringing it down to the real people level. She did a presentation at CrossFit Invictus about how to cook smarter, not harder! The basic principle that she brings up is that you can make your life a lot easier if you have a food you can roll forward.

The concept of rolling food forward is that you cook basic ingredients like roasted chicken that are pretty plain and can be incorporated in many recipes so that you don’t have “reinvent the wheel on Tuesday night” as she terms it. She calls this the Mr. Potato head technique where you have your basics and then you dress them up to incorporate different favors. For example adding homemade mayo that is spiced with chipotle seasoning to plain shredded chicken on top of some roasted veggies! Sounds delicious and takes 5 minutes to put together on a week night if you did you food prep. 

The 3 tips and trick she goes over is roasting a whole chicken, how to make your own mayo, and roasted veggies mixes. Check out the full video here. She also has blog post with all of the recipes, tips, and tricks she goes over in the video here.
