Wordless Wednesday: Paleo/Primal Meals at Home

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

OK, maybe I’ll write a few words. 😉
The above slideshow are shots of a few meals Andy and I have had so far in 2013. All we need is a monster salad, a slab of meat and perhaps some root vegetables. I often enjoy these dinners more than dining out because we control all the ingredients, portion size and the cost of our meal. I even made parmesan “chips” to go on our salads in one of the photos. 🙂

Do you have a favorite Paleo/Primal meal? Please share in the comments section below! I found this recipe for cauliflower breadsticks, and I am thinking of trying them tonight!

    I have a question – i read your stuff, follow your posts and yes, try both the diet and recipes…. I have even increased my paleo diet from once a week to three times a week. The question i have is two fold and stems from what you said in this last email – SLABS of MEAT…. the question is – what role does fish play in this diet, and second, we have been bombarded with the thought/understanding that eating red meat is bad for you, yet your meals do focus a lot on ‘slabs of meat’…. from a dietary standpoint, what do you have to say about this, or better, how do you reconcile this?

    • I am going to answer your question with a question. Not to upset you, but why are you only doing Paleo 3 times a week? What is the point of that?

      Fish can play any role you want it to play as long as it isn’t breaded/deep-fried.
      On the meat thing, yes, we have been taught that “slabs of meat” are “bad”, and I think they are when eaten more than 2-3 times a week. The meat Andy and I eat at home is the best we can buy… organic/grass-fed/humanely treated/and above all LOCAL. 🙂

      You can get lots of protein from fish and eggs (even egg whites if you are worried about cholesterol).

      On that note, after this weekend I am going vegetarian for a while to see how it goes. I am getting too dependent on meat for my protein intake. I’d like to eat only eggs and perhaps some fish and see how it plays out.

      Here’s a link on good protein sources:
