Whats This?

This recipe blog is an extension of my original blog Motivation... Determination... Drive. Having been asked numerous times what is involved in paleo eating and the simple question "so... what can you eat?" I have decided to put this collection together. Some of the recipes will be original, and some will be modifications (or replicas) of recipes I have found in cookbooks books or on line. Every recipe listed will be something I have tried, nothing that I think just looks good and want to attempt. As a disclaimer, I will not take credit for those found at other sources, if you are to use one listed with a link attached please give credit to the original site. Thank You and happy eating!!

Zucchini Pesto Rollups

These came from paleomg.com/zucchini-pesto-roll-ups/ I just made a few alterations
*Disclaimer: for this to be 100% Paleo you have to use nitrate free sausage.*
What you need:
2 zucchinis, ends removed, sliced (I used a mandolin)
4 Sausages (we used nitrate free spicy sausage that was precooked)
1 cup Basil
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 Cup Lemon Juice
1 Clove of Garlic
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of garlic powder

What you do:
- Cut zucchini with mandolin.
- Add garlic and basil to food processor and mix
- Slowly add olive oil
- Add lemon, salt and pepper (than taste and add whatever you want to perfect it)
- If you didn’t buy precooked sausage grill it up and let it cool
- Lightly oil zucchini and season with garlic powder, salt and pepper
- Slice sausage into 1” piece
- Spread pesto onto a slice of zucchini
- Roll sausage  with zucchini and secure with toothpick
- Warm up on the grill to cook the zucchini and heat the sausage.
