I LOVE hot dogs. The problem with conventional hot dogs is the meat is very poor quality and it has a lot of other junk in it. I pass on the conventional hot dogs and instead go for the 100% grass fed ones from Applegate Farms. I STRONGLY recommend you check them out if you want to enjoy hot dogs. The ingredients are very impressive – all beef plus some natural spices. Nothing else! I made a small primal/paleo dinner last night with these very hot dogs. Do you want the recipe?
Grass Fed Hot Dogs w/ Veggies
- 2 100% Grass Fed Hot Dogs (Applegate Farms)
- 1/4 Small White Onion
- 1/2 Green Pepper
- 5 Cherry Tomatoes
- 3 Fresh Basil Leaves
- Sprinkle Parsley Flakes
- Drizzle Basic Vinaigrette Dressing (Recipe from The Primal Blueprint Cookbook)
I broiled the hot dogs on low for 5-10 minutes. Just enough time to chop up the veggies. When the hot dogs are done and the veggies are chopped up, then drizzle on the dressing and parsley flakes! For some extra flavor, fry everything in coconut oil, ghee, butter or lard with garlic if you desire.
Banana Avocado Green Smoothie
- 1/2 C Water
- 1 Medium Banana
- 1/2 Hass Avocado (black skin, from Cali)
- 1 C Spinach
Add water first. Then add sliced banana, avocado, spinach and top with as much ice as you desire. I made this exact recipe yesterday for the first time and loved it.
Do you still eat hot dogs? What brand? Are they grass-fed?
