Sorry for the delay…Paleo life can get a little busy! I got a lot accomplished this weekend though. Anyone see Miley Cyrus on SNL? haha
Anyways, Thursday night before dinner I went to the grocery store and picked up some pork tenderloin and itty bitty potatoes. I seasoned the pork with salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, and garlic powder; then, I threw it on the grill for about 45 min. to an hour. I boiled the potatoes until they were soft, I picked them up at Trader Joe’s. I added some sweet onions and pineapple salsa…it was SO good! Even my mom loved it. Friday morning, I had some coffee at work for breakfast because I forgot to pack a lumch, but when I got home from work I made scrambled eggs, and added the leftover itty bitty potatoes. Yes folks, they are actually called “itty bitty potatoes”.
Friday night for dinner, I ordered sashimi, and used my coconut aminos with it. I cannot tell the difference between that and regular soy sauce, so yet, another discovery that I don’t actually miss the soy sauce. I love all the alternatives with Paleo. Does anyone have a good “Philly Cheesesteak” recipes they could share?
Breakfast saturday morning was delicious! Made some scrambled eggs with a slice of bacon with pancakes. I found pumpkin butter at Trader Joe’s, so I added a little to the pancake batter; then, smeared some on top! Ended up not really having much for lunch because I had to do a lot of running around yesterday, but when I got home I took out some chicken I had marinating in taco spices, and grilled them. I cut them up, put them on salad, and added pineapple salsa! Man, was that good.
Last night, I cooked all the food I was going to eat today. I made pizza, green beans with almond butter sauce, and…wait for it…wait for it…2 LOAVES OF PALEO BREAD! So I found a fairly simple recipe, unfortunately I’ll have to find another one. The one I used called for flaxseed meal. This is the first time I’ve ever used it, and I’m not even sure how “Paleo” it is, but I gave it a shot. It looked prettttty good, almost like 12 grain bread. This morning when I woke up I mixed up some tuna and Paleo mayo, and put it on some of the bread I made. Within a few minutes, the roof of my mouth and my throat were so itchy! I have a couple food allergies, and now I guess I have to add flaxseed meal to that list. That was the only ingredient that I never had. Next weekend I may try a new recipe. For lunch I ate the pizza! Then, dinner was beef and pork meatballs with sauce, and spaghetti squash, which I will be eating for breakfast tomorrow!
Okay Paleo friends, does anyone use Walden Farm products? I know they aren’t Paleo because they have preservatives, but they are zero carbs, zero sugar, zero everything…thoughts? I have used the syrup and dressing before, but not during Paleo. Also, does anyone know anything about people with diabetes and Paleo? It seems like a good option for them if they can find low carb, no sugar meals, right? Thoughts on that? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
