Grilled Grasshoppers

Our nutrition helps us not only stay healthy, but thrive. We eat to sustain and maintain energy for our activities throughout the day, as well as avoiding disease. We like to eat meat, fish, eggs and veggies, seeds and nuts, fruit, healthy oils, and little starch. We like foods that are fresh, nutrient-dense and natural. We also love cooking as much as possible, so we share recipes as often as possible.


Today's recipe is not grilled, nor made of grasshoppers, but this is what I remember Robb Wolf calling them. (If you have a better name, please share suggestions in comments.)

  • 6 c spinach
  • 4-6 eggs
  • 1 lbs grass-fed ground beef
  • 1 spoonful coconut oil, or other preferred cooking fat

For my particular ingredients, I picked up both my eggs (Wilcox Omega 3 Brown Eggs) and spinach from Costco and the ground beef was picked up from Rain Shadow Meats.


Start off by browning your beef. I drained it of it's fat and set it aside.

Throw the cooking fat into your pan along with the spinach and the beef, stirring consistently until the leaves cook down on medium heat.



Prep your eggs into a bowl and scramble.

Pour eggs over the beef and spinach.

Keep your eye on the mix so that nothing burns, and turn consistently.

I threw everything into a bowl and enjoyed it with hot coffe (with coconut milk added) and half of an avacado.

Two bites into this deliciousness, I realized I had some Gordito's Chipotle Salsa in the fridge.

It's good because it's made with "Love". Sounds good, but not sure if it's paleo...

Poured maybe a cup and a half over everything and it turned out as a slightly-tangy, heartier, smokier dish.

Oh sh!t. So good. Try it out!
