Fun Food for Fall

Ever since the completion of competition season last year I have been "nursing my body back to health."
Eating more like a "Protein Type" Metabolically speaking.
This can coincide a bit with the hugely popular PALEO way of eating.
If you haven't read Wolcott and Fahey's The Metabolic Typing Diet  or Robb Wolf's The Paleo Solution
I strongly suggest you head to the library or Barnes and Noble and dig in.

Here are a few metabolically friendly fun Fall recipes :D

Zucchini Lasagna : THANK YOU MOMMA!!!

My apologies in advance, my mom and I fly by the seat of our pants when cooking so I'll try my best to replicate what I did :)

Ground Meat (Turkey, Bison, Beef..etc) 1-1.5 lbs
4-6 zucchini sliced thin the long way
1 small onion
1/4 cup RAW Cheese of your choice ( or leave out entirely)
Eggs ( recipe can also exist without this) I used 2-3 egg whites and 1 egg
Coconut oil-2-3 TBS
Sea Salt
Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 350/375

1.Saute ground meat of choice in coconut oil with sea salt and pepper, drain and set aside.
2. Saute sliced zucchini and onion in coconut oil and water, 3-5 minutes drain set aside
3. Combine your choice of eggs and set aside
4. Coat your pan with coconut oil and add a layer of zucchini and onions, then a layer of ground meat, repeat.
5. Pour egg mixture evenly over your "layered lasagna"
6. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of raw shredded cheese 
7. Top with sea salt and pepper
Cook for 25- 30 minutes
