Do You Eat Tuna?

Do You Eat Tuna?

If you’re on the paleo diet, you already know the importance of fish and its high Omega 3 content.  What are your options for fish.  Certainly, we are all familiar with canned tuna.  No salt, packed in water, tuna will provide you with protein, Omega 3, Niacin, B6, B12, and Selenium.  I won’t break down … Continue reading

Last of the Leftovers

Last of the Leftovers

I would say half the meals I make for breakfast include leftovers from the night before.  Today, in fact, it was 4 days before.  Yes, the last piece of Thanksgiving turkey has been eaten.  I think the reason leftovers taste so good is that flavors get concentrated when food is cooled and reheated.  In this … Continue reading

Decadent Paleo Eating Weekend

Decadent Paleo Eating Weekend

I plan meals for the entire Thanksgiving weekend, not just Thanksgiving day.  Yes, it usually involves leftovers, but I do buy other proteins.  Thankfully, I did have a few extra slices of pancetta leftover from my turkey preparation.  I prepared my turkey breast this year with a layer of pancetta under the turkey skin.  This … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Paleo

Thanksgiving Paleo

I am thankful for the paleo diet.  I credit this regimen for health and fitness levels that I’ve never had before.  Aches and pains I use to think were a part of aging and slowing down have disappeared.  Headaches were a common occurrence and Advil was sometimes a daily routine, not anymore.  I’ve been on … Continue reading

A Hearty Paleo Meal

A Hearty Paleo Meal

I was really hungry today.  Starving.  I had a huge workout this morning and came home famished.  Before the paleo diet, I would have reached for the cheap carbs immediately: rice, pasta, bread.  Since these things aren’t in my diet anymore, I have no choice but to look elsewhere.  I quickly discovered that the quality … Continue reading

Yam Home-Fries

Yam Home-Fries

Home-fries are one of the common breakfast foods you see on every menu.  Many of us grew up on diners across the country, where potatoes are standard sides with every dish, including pancakes.  If you read my post, The Perfect Stir Fry, where I do a calorie breakdown on the classic Denny’s Grand Slam, you’ll … Continue reading

Paleo Soup

Paleo Soup

My earlier post, Why You Need Stock, was a popular post.  From the scientific standpoint, anthropologists say it was the extraction of nutrients from bones that kept caveman’s brain growing faster than other mammals.  Aside from all that, I love a good soup.  The difference between stock and soup is the additions you choose to … Continue reading

Paleo on Vacation

Paleo on Vacation

I spent this past weekend in Santa Barbara for a half marathon.  With the reward of accomplishment and a new personal record comes the reward of a night on the town.  A new dining experience is one of my favorite things to do, but dining out on the paleo diet can be challenging depending on … Continue reading

My Simple Breakfast

My Simple Breakfast

In looking for all the wonderful paleo foods to try, it feels great to return to one of my favorites.  No matter what vegetables are in season, I always turn to this meal.  Eggs are versatile and can be used in so many ways.  I limit my yolk intake to  2 or 3 a week … Continue reading

Choose Your Friends Wisely

Choose Your Friends Wisely

Transitioning to the paleo diet can be challenging.  Let’s face it, any diet can be challenging.  But you will reap a lifetime of rewards from taking care of yourself.  I meet people every day that, “eat healthy”, but when it comes right down to it, they don’t.  You can work out all you want, but … Continue reading
