I am a working Mom with two sweet little boys. See picture above with my youngest. One of my passions is cooking and I am a bit obsessed with finding new recipes. My family will attest to rarely having the same meal twice. As much as I love experimenting, I never have kept of record of what I have made and how it turned out. This is the place to do it!! Starting today…. I am going to share and record my favorite recipes.
I go through various culinary exploration and obsessions. So for now, I am cooking Paleo. For those of you familiar with a Paleo Diet, skip over this section. For those who need a quick tutorial, shall we consult Wikipedia?
The paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era—a period of about 2.5 million years duration that ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture. In common usage, such terms as the “Paleolithic diet” also refer to the actual ancestral human diet. Centered on commonly available modern foods, the “contemporary” Paleolithic diet consists mainly of fish, grass-fed pasture raised meats, vegetables, fruit, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, salt, refined sugar, and processed oils
Ok – sounds a bit archaic right? Yes, maybe… but since I starting cooking Paleo I have really felt my energy level increase and who doesn’t like a lot of meat!? I admit, I don’t cook Paleo for every meal. As much as I love substituting Cauliflower for rice, it can be time consuming. So I have committed to one Paleo meal a day…. Dinner! And here is where I am going to record my Paleo Adventure.
