Paleo Asparagus – Oven Roasted

I hated most vegetables except for cooked corn, raw carrots, and raw green peppers.� I learned to love vegetables and even one of my least favorite vegetables, Asparagus, became one of my go to favorites for lunch, dinner and snacks.� I cook this veggie up when ever I have to heat up the oven and have some on hand.


1 or 2 bunches of asparagus (1 or 2 lbs) – bottom ends trimmed off (about an inch taken off)

2 Tbs of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil), can substitute coconut oil or ghee, it’s your choice here.

Pepper to taste

2 or 3 Tbs of�Parmesan cheese (optional for the non paleo types or those watching salt intake)

1 tsp of salt for the non salt wary (I personally leave it out)

1 or 2 minced cloves of garlic (again optional)


Preheat oven to anything over 375f (I usually go around 375 to 425 as I am usually cooking with something else).

Toss the asparagus with all ingredients that you have selected and layer evenly on an baking sheet lined with alum. foil.

Place in oven and cook for 18-30 minutes depending on how crunchy you want it and how hot the oven.� I suggest checking around the 18 minute mark.

Eat with your meal or grab a few here and there as a healthy snack.

Lake Street Dive, a great sounding band.

Ever hear of Lake Street Dive?� I have found my way to their videos on and love the sound.� Try this song, “You Go Down Smooth,” on for size.� Check them out on here, Lake Street Dive.� If you like them, you might also like Alabama Shakes.

Bad Migration

I tried to migrate from the blog I had been testing at to the main domain and wouldn’t you know it there was problems.  I found it quicker and easier to just start fresh.  I will be doing some cut and pasting from the old one to this for the better posts.

This site will be mainly about Tech, Family, Food and my Life as I take on the Paleo Diet.  I will cover restaurant visits and my like and dislikes.  My reviews of area attraction here in North-East Ohio and anywhere else I happen to wander to.  You might even get some of my music likes, gaming choices and internet sites I like to visit.  So hang on and take this trip with me.

The themes may change a bit here in the beginning as I try to find one that fits the look and feel I am shooting for so if you see one that I am trying out that you like, please leave a comment.   And if you see one you just can’t stand…well say that too.  Well it has been a long day and I finally have this working so I will sign off for the evening and leave you with a link to a very good rendition of Mingus’s – Moanin’ on Youtube.
