4 large portobello mushrooms
1 jar low sugar marinara sauce (I get mine from Trader Joes)
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 can Black Olives
1 lb Lean Pork Sausage
1 package Turkey Pepperoni
1 Red onion
Directions: Remove and dice the stem of the mushrooms. With a spoon scrape out the under "ribs" (black stuff) from the mushroom caps. If you mushrooms are thick enough slice the mushrooms in half (creating two thin mushroom halves). Saute the Pork Sausage until fully cooked. Remove the meat from the pan. Saute the chopped mushroom and bell pepper until nearly cooked. On a sprayed baking sheet. Place the mushrooms. Spread marinara sauce on each. Cover with sauteed peppers and mushrooms. Then layer the sausage, pepperoni, olives, red onion and any other topping you may want. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
1 head Cauliflower
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
3 Tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar (optional)
1 package Dried Seaweed
1 package Imitation Crab (or cooked shrimp if preferred)
1 package Smoked Salmon
1 Cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
1 bunch Green Onion slice length wise
1 package pre-shredded carrot (or cut them yourself)
1 Bottle Glueten free Soy Sauce
1 Tube Wasabi paste
2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise (paleo homemade if desired)
2 Tablespoons Sriracha Sauce
Directions. Shred the cauliflower and saute with oil over medium high heat. Stir occasionally, until grains are browned. Stir rice vinegar into the cauliflower. Place a piece of plastic wrap on a cutting board. Put 1 piece of seaweed down. press a thin layer of the cauliflower down on the seaweed. On the end closest to you place green onion, imitation crab, carrot, cucumber down. Mix sriracha and mayo together and put 1/4 of the mixture on top of the wrap. Tightly roll up the seaweed, securing the end with water. On top of the roll place a thin layer of the smoked salmon and a thin layer of sliced avocado on top of that. Use the plastic wrap to apply some pressure to the roll, securing the avocado and salmon. With a sharp knife, slice into rounds. Serve with soy sauce and wasabi paste. ENJOY!
This sushi is slightly messier than normal sushi, but it was satisfying for sure. You can make endless combination using shrimp, raw tuna (sushi grade) or putting everything inside. Experiment and enjoy!
Spicy Ginger shrimp
1.5 lb Raw Large Shrimo
3 Tablespoons Red Pepper Flakes
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Direction: Shell the shrimp and Marinate it in all the ingredients. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes. Soak some skewers and heat up the grill, medium high is fine. Put the shrimp on the skewers. Grill for 5 minutes and flip. Remove from the grill when the shrimp are pink and cooked through! I served this with acorn squash and slaw. Your set!

Cutting open any squash can be difficult. A mallet works best, or a very good serrated knife! Be patient and careful! Also, the squash isn't so good reheated, so only bake enough for how many you are serving. I could only eat about 1/6-1/4 of a squash! enjoy

Spaghetti and Meatballs
1 spaghetti squash
3 cloves garlic
1/3 chopped onion
1lb Italian Turkey Sausage
1 jar Marinera Sauce
Preheat oven to 400. Cut Squash in half and scoop out seeds. Place face down and bake for 20 minutes. Flip and bake another 20 minutes. While that is baking, make small balls of the italian sausage and fry over medium high heat. Rotate the balls until they are cooked through. Remove the meatballs and saute the garlic onion and mushrooms. Once cooked to your desire, removed from heat. Use a fork to remove the squash from the skin. It seperates in noodle like strips with little effort. If your fighting it, cook for slightly longer. Heat the Marinera sauce and pour it over the squash. Add meatballs and mushroom mixture and enjoy!!!!
