Sometimes, what we think is just a happy coincidence is actually more likely to be cosmic intervention. You see, I had an Irish cookbook that my Mom loaned me when I started researching Irish recipes before our trip. One recipe that caught my attention was for honey roasted parsnips.
But life happened, and I didn’t think I would get around to doing this recipe before I went to Ireland for vacation. Then, as if the universe was giving me a not-so-subtle nudge, I received my emeals eating plan for the week, and wouldn’t you know it, there was a recipe for honey roasted parsnips!
Well, you don’t have to tell me twice! They turned out gorgeous, don’t you think?
I hope you enjoy this very Irish, emeals recipe from their Paleo eating plan (which is also clean!).

We arrived in Dublin, exhausted from a very long trip, but very happy to be here. We immediately went to our hotel, the Holiday Inn Express, and took a nap. Then we woke up a couple hours later and went down to the hotel next door for dinner.
Since we had no other food source, I chose the best I could from the menu. I ordered a club sandwich on whole wheat bread and shared a bowl of coriander carrot soup with my mom. I love that the restaurant food here isn’t as salty as it is in the states. At least not at this particular restaurant called Cinnabar. What I was most impressed by were the fries! They were not drenched in oil the way they are in the states and they actually tasted like real potatoes. Imagine that!!
After dinner, we crossed the street for a walk in Northwood Park. Absolutely beautiful!
And thank goodness there was plenty of space there because Mini Chef really needed to run…
….after being cooped up on an air plane for 15 hours!
Then we went back to our room and passed out. Tired doesn’t begin to describe the jet lag here…
