Paleo-ish Dinner

I made this awesome dinner last night and it is pretty much Paleo (have you heard of that?). I am a supporter of Paleo for the most part. I do believe that everyone is different, though, and it may not fit every person's lifestyle to be paleo. I also am not Paleo because, well, I have a husband and kids who love dairy and bread...yeah 2 problems right there. But I try to make meals more on the paleo side because it really has tons of health benefits.

I made baked chicken nuggets, glazed carrots, steamed peas, grapes, and raspberries (picked from the garden of course!).

For the carrots I got a recipe off Whole Foods Recipe App (love it)

Glazed carrots
Steam 1 pound carrots 7-10 minutes. In a skillet put 2 tbsp butter, 2 tbsp honey, 1 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar on medium heat and melt together. Add carrots and cook till slightly browning. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot. YUM.

For the chicken I have a recipe I use regularly but this time I was out of butter and parmesan cheese (double whammy). So I substituted. 

Cut your chicken into pieces and dip in olive oil. Roll in Panko Italian breadcrumbs. Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Steam peas and finish carrots while cooking. 

Enjoy a satisfying and healthy meal!
