Delight in a Flavorful Paleo Moroccan Pork & Dressing Recipe

Further to her guest post yesterday, Stormy Sweitzer, owner of Maoomba, the Real Food for Active Lives blog, and author of Paleo Power Lunch: Easy, Filling & Delicious Workday Meal Strategies, has very kindly shared a Moroccan recipe with us from her book.

This is the lunch that started it all. In the dead of winter, wanting something colorful to go with a leftover pork chop, I threw it together with a handful of berries, seeds, and avocado. It’s earthy, but light. Add a handful of raw mushrooms for more vegetables.

This recipe is perfect for those who are looking for a quick, nutritious, and delicious meal to take to work or enjoy at home. The combination of flavours and textures makes it a standout dish that’s both satisfying and refreshing.
