Chestnuts and Brussels Sprouts - Paleo Nutrition - Catalyst Athletics Recipes
Chestnuts and Brussels Sprouts
Scott Hagnas  |  September 26 2012  |  Sides
Chestnuts are a seasonal treat in the fall and winter. They are a nut that is mostly carbohydrate (rather than fat), as most tree nuts are. They are the only nut that contains vitamin C, though some of it will be degraded by cooking. I use commercially available pre-cooked chestnuts in this recipe. Look in better markets; chestnuts are becoming easier to find. Time: 20 minutes • 2 Tbsps. grass-fed butter (or tallow) • 1 shallot, sliced • 1/2 pear, diced • 3/4 cup...
Blueberry Chutney - Paleo Nutrition - Catalyst Athletics Recipes

Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened (30-40 min). Allow to cool, and then add the mint. ...
Coconut Carrots - Paleo Nutrition - Catalyst Athletics Recipes
Coconut Carrots
Scott Hagnas  |  August 1 2012  |  Sides
Here's another use for the coconut cream I wrote about in the last issue. (It's not the same as coconut milk!) Time: 30 minutes • 1 bag baby carrots (~12oz) • 2 Tbsp coconut oil • 1 Tbsp coconut cream • sea salt Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over medium. Add the oil and carrots, cover and sauté until soft, maybe 25 minutes. Stir occasionally. Add the coconut cream and salt. Stir well and cook for 5 more minutes. The coconut cream should be mixed into...
Shredded Yams and Carob - Paleo Nutrition - Catalyst Athletics Recipes
Shredded Yams and Carob
Scott Hagnas  |  August 1 2012  |  Sides
Here is a new spin on yams. I like this as part of a post-training meal. Time: 15 minutes • 1 yam (sweet potato) • 2 tsp coconut oil • carob powder to taste (cocoa powder will work, too) • sea salt Peel your yam while bringing the coconut oil to medium heat. Use the potato peeler to shred the yam into your skillet, or you can always use a food processor. Be careful peeling once the yam becomes small! Sauté the yam until it softens, then add the carob and...
Brussels Sprout Medley - Paleo Nutrition - Catalyst Athletics Recipes

Blanch in a pot of boiling water for 2 min, then drain. Meanwhile, brown the chopped bacon in a large skillet. Once browned, add the brussels sprouts and all of the remaining ingredients. Cover and sauté until soft, stirring often. Serve warm or col...

Drizzle with the oil and vinegar, and then sprinkle some creamed coconut over the top. Those who use dairy may wish to try some goat cheese in place of the creamed coconut. Nutritional info: 1 serving at 20g carb, 32g fat....
Jicama Slaw - Paleo Nutrition - Catalyst Athletics Recipes
Jicama Slaw
Scott Hagnas  |  June 2 2012  |  Sides
Great for a warm day or barbecue! Time: 7 minutes • 1 large jicama, peeled • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion • juice of 1 lemon • sea salt to taste Shred the jicama with a food processor.

Japanese Mountain Yam - Paleo Nutrition - Catalyst Athletics Recipes
Japanese Mountain Yam
Scott Hagnas  |  February 28 2012  |  Sides
This month's "expand your menu" food is the Japanese mountain yam, sometimes also known as a Chinese wild yam. It's also known as nagaimo. This tuber is known for its immune enhancing and anti-inflammatory properties. Mountain yams are easy to find in any Asian market.They peel very easily, but you'll then find that the yams are very slimy or mucilaginous. Hang on to the tubers and your knife carefully! Don't worry - once cooked, the sliminess is gone and they are delicious.Time: 25 mi...
