Paleo Potager - Sweet Potato, Shrimp & Chicken Chowder
Here we go, guys!!!
Happy 2016, once more! If you haven't read my New Year's greeting article, check it out here.
I love today's recipe because it does so many things:
In December, we shot a series of videos over the course of 4 days. On the final day, just as we start the first recipe of the day, the power went out! It was a disheartening experience as we had a list of content to complete, but no lights to do so. Bummer, right?
True to Culinary Ninja form, we opened the windows, rearranged the set, adjusted the cameras and shot with the natural light we could scrounge. If you watch the video, you'll notice that all of the light comes from the left.
Three hours into the outage, the power came back on, we were able to finish up the recipes that required an oven, we wrapped the shoot and got Jesse to the airport just in time for his flight. It was a challenging situation, but we overcame adversity and made the most of the situation.
Life is kind of like that, no? You work your butt off to accomplish a task and you think that that is enough. But, just when you need a breeze at your back, a strong headwind sets in and you find out what you are made of. It reminds me of that verse:
"If you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength?" Proverbs 24:10
When the headwinds set in in 2016, it is my wish that you'll meet the challenge. And, when you do, that you're fridge and freezer are stocked with healthful food to fuel you through!
I hope that you'll give today's recipe a go. It is super simple and is an amazing way to stay warm and eat well, while...
"Keeping It Paleo!"
