Paleo and Power Lifting: A Perfect Pair

 

Strength in Conditioning for Thursday, January 2, 2014

When it comes to eating paleo, a little time and effort is required. We have to maintain a full stock of fresh produce and meat. Microwave dinners and fast food is out of the question. And more than a little prep work is usually required to get dinner on the table. So for those nights where quick and easy is the name of the game, here is a super simple baked escarole recipe from nomnompaleo.com that will complement virtually any protein you decide to dish up!
.
  • 1 large head of escarole, cut into quarters (or 3 heads of radicchio, cut in half lengthwise)
  • 3 tablespoons of ghee, melted
  • 1 tablespoon Sunny Paris seasoning
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Balsamic vinegar

“I preheated the oven to 400 F and grabbed a 9×13” glass baking dish. I coated the dish with ghee before putting the escarole in a single layer. I drizzled the remaining ghee over the top of the greens and seasoned with Sunny Paris, salt, and pepper. I roasted the greens in the oven for 15 minutes before flipping them. After an additional 8-10 minutes, the escarole was finished — tender yet crunchy on the edges. Before taking the dish to the table, I drizzled on some aged balsamic vinegar.”
