One thing about the paleo diet, it makes you think about your food. There’s never a meal where I go through the motions and robotically prepare it, like I use to do with spaghetti and meat sauce three times a week. Boil water and throw a handful of pasta in while a jar of sauce simmers on the stove, while I watched TV. Sometimes I’d get ambitious and throw a few frozen meatballs in. Grains and sugar are not good. It was all processed food and I didn’t care. A few years later, after educating myself on grass fed meats and carb alternatives, I think carefully about what I eat. Today, I went to the butcher to get some chicken wings. The tastiest wings you can buy are at Lindy & Grundy’s on Fairfax in Los Angeles. Their chicken comes from a farm that uses no soy or corn in their feed. It’s paleo heaven! The rest of their meats are grass fed, too. I was very hungry this afternoon because I just finished a 13 mile training run this morning. Of course, I perused the cases to see what else caught my eye. Ground lamb! $11.99 a pound. Yum! One third pound, please!. $4.20! I don’t know what I could buy with $4.20 at that moment that would have excited me more. I could already smell it on the stove. What else could I serve with it? I love a peppery arugula salad with fresh, Meyer lemon juice and a crispy fried egg. Such a satisfying meal.
