French Fries, Paleo Style

French Fries, Paleo Style

Of course I miss french fries.  Who wouldn’t?  But given the potato’s high toxicity, I look for alternatives for an occasional treat.  Many restaurants offer Sweet Potato Fries, so  that should be your first choice over regular french fries if you MUST have them (no salt, please).  Here’s the catch.  Most restaurants also use deep … Continue reading

The Lazy, Fast Paleo Meal

The easiest meal to make when you’re in a hurry?  I call it, “The Big Pile”.  A big pile of food.  A pile of greens, a pile of carbs, a pile of protein.  Basically, a big pile of nutrients.  Mix and match, three separate piles, three layers of piles, either way, get the nutrients into … Continue reading

Summer Grilling, Paleo Style

Summer Grilling, Paleo Style

I’ve been really loving my grill lately.  I was telling a friend that having my propane grill die may have been the best thing to happen because the next week, I found an old Weber at a garage sale for a mere $1.  It forced me into the world of charcoal and the flavors have … Continue reading

Butterflying

No, this post has nothing to do with butter.   But, it does have a lot to do with your paleo breakfast.  Why?  Because the comments I get from readers who hold traditional 9-5 jobs indicate that there’s not a lot of time to cook a great breakfast when you’re on your way to work … Continue reading

Chicken Fried Steak – Paleo Style

Chicken Fried Steak – Paleo Style

Need a new way to cook chicken?  Poultry is by far one of the most accessible, affordable proteins for your paleo menu.  But for most of us, we only have a few ways we know how to prepare it.  One of the challenges in the early stages of paleo dieting is keeping the dishes different … Continue reading

A Better Breakfast Meat

A Better Breakfast Meat

To me, paleo means making better choices with my food.  I’m fortunate to have a choice of what I put into my body.  A lot of people don’t have a choice.  If there was nothing to eat but rice, I’d eat rice.  But there’s plenty of other foods to choose from so I don’t eat … Continue reading

The Open Face…

The Open Face…

The common questions from people starting a paleo journey usually have to do with replacing the carbs in their meals, namely, bread, pasta, rice, and potatoes.  A majority of people eat one of those, at least one meal per day.  Two years ago, I was eating one of those at every meal.  I would always … Continue reading
