sauteed kale with bacon and onion

hi!! haven’t blogged in quite some time…it’s definitely overdue. a lot of things happened since the last time i was on here…definitely good changes. 🙂 the bf is now coaching at an amazing box and we LOVE our new CrossFit family! everything happens for a reason…..anyways, we are participating in a nutrition challenge to get back on the paleo lifestyle so of course i’m going to try new recipes! i received two paleo cookbooks for Christmas: Paleo Slow Cooking by Chrissy Gower and Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo. these books are not only filled with delicious recipes but they have a lot of information on the lifestyle. thanks mama kerins!! ❤

kale,bacon,onionso….i made this DELICIOUS side dish — kale with bacon and onion. i actually found this recipe in multiplies paleo websites and recipe books since it’s a common paleo side dish. i regret not cooking this sooner!


  • a bunch of kale — i used the 10 oz bag from TJ. it was already cleaned and cut!
  • 8 strips of bacon
  • 1 medium-sized onion


  1. cube the bacon.
  2. dice the onion.
  3. in a heated non-stick pan, place the bacon and start sauteeing them. depending on how crunchy you like your bacon bits, that’ll determine how long you keep it on there. i like mine crispy!
  4. when the bacon turns into the color you like, add the diced onions.
  5. keep stirring the bacon and onions until the onions become translucent.
  6. add kale. because too much kale for my small pan, i had to add my kale in bunches. i had to wait until some kale would wilt before adding more.
  7. take a fork and ENJOY that sucker. it’s a perfect side dish for everything!

the sweetness from the onion and the saltiness from the bacon adds an amazing touch to the kale…this is definitely going to be a favorite in our household!
