Through the Paleo diet/lifestyle and the Whole30 my family, friends and I are becoming healthier! We are getting to our healthy weights, moving more, sleeping better and have better energy. We are suffering fewer mild medical issues and are just overall feeling better every day!

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen these days. We cook and enjoy a lot of great food that's both tasty and healthy. I hope you'll find some recipes here that you'll enjoy!

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

We had friends over for dinner Saturday night.  For appetizers we had raw veggies with ranch dip (hidden valley ranch packet & tub of sour cream), deviled eggs & cranberry trail mix.  Dinner consisted of the quartered cabbage recipe from the farmer's market, Grass-fed Top Sirloin Steak and Bacon Wrapped Shrimp (see recipe below)!  It was delicious!

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
  1. You need a pound of uncooked wild caught shrimp, shells removed and deviened.
  2. 1 package of uncooked  bacon.
  3. Slice raw bacon strip into 3 pieces.
  4. Wrap each piece around a piece of shrimp and secure with a long wooden or metal skewer.
  5. Repeat. You can place several pieces of bacon wrapped shrimp on a single skewer.
  6. Heat up the grill! Lay all of the shrimp and bacon skewers on the grill. A few minutes on each side is all you need for crispy bacon and juicy shrimp.  
This recipe is from Intentional Consumption.  See some of his other ideas for bacon here. I'm thinking of trying the chocolate dipped bacon!

Next time I make this I will keep the grill heat low (to avoid flare ups from the bacon grease) and allow more time.  It took a little longer than I had planned.
