Monk fish used to be this shit fish that was brought up with the trawlers catch that the fisherman would eat as they couldn’t sell the ugly thing, plus it is relatively hard to “clean” … then people started to realize that that shit tasted great. It’s kinda like lobster, but a quarter of the work. It has a light sweet taste and a firm texture that lends itself well to steaming. Read more
Okay, so I’m a big fan of using leftovers to make something different yet just as great as the day or so before. I almost always make extra meat, sauce and veg so that I can use them later to create a whole host of creatively delish leftover dishes.
Here is a quickish lunch I threw together on the spur of the moment. I was damn hungry and could have just chowed down on the cold chicken and some lettuce, but what’s the fun in that? Plus these cassava wraps are dead easy and take hardly any time to kick out.
You can use any leftover meat you want and any veg as well. These ingredients are just what I had on hand to use at the time my hunger struck. Read more
Sometimes you just need a little “cheat” here and there to make everything alright in your world. After having a long reminiscing conversation about Pie and the ultimate remembered deliciousness of the gooey bottom crust, (It’s been about 8 years since I’ve eaten a piece…), I found myself wanting that little “cheat”. I had some frozen fruit on hand so I threw this Cobbler together using Cassava Flour. The stuff is brilliant! Read more
Saturday breakfast growing up was almost always a grand affair with bacon or ham, french toast or pancakes, berries, fruit, eggs of some kind, marmalade and toast… At my house nowadays not so much sadly.
However, my kids did grew up with my families secret recipe for homemade pancakes. No box made in my house! They are delicious (or what I remember them tasting like)!
Ever since I have moved towards a more appropriate ancestral style of eating, I have struggled to find a great recipe that even comes close to the deliciousness that I remember… I have done the almond flour route, coconut flour, sweet potato, tapioca, Plantain flour, and just plain banana and egg, to no avail 🙁 Read more
Usually after a holiday around here, the turkeys, hams and ducks all go on sale and that’s when I go and buy a few frozen Young Ducks for the freezer so when the urge arises, I have easy access to a duck to eat 🙂
To thaw it out, I usually place it in the bottom drawer of my fridge for a few days, then rinse it out and remove the neck and offal from inside the body cavity for the Paleo Dog… Read more
- 1/2 cup Tapioca (small pearl)
- 3 1/2 cups Coconut Milk (2 x 13.5-ounce cans)
- 2 Egg Yolks
- 1/2 cup Honey (local, unpasteurized)
- 1/4 tsp Fish Sauce (sugar free)
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 Mango, very ripe, peeled, pitted and roughly chopped
- 2 cups Mango chunks (thawed from frozen)
- A squeeze or two of fresh lime juice
So I’ve been wanting an easy snack/recovery nibble for after my workouts…
I am not into any of the highly processed recovery drinks and protein shakes/powders available… I wanted something more natural and paleocentric.
Hence this recipe.
I can bring one with me to the gym or keep it in the car for emergencies. It is very shelf stable and doesn’t really need to be refrigerated 🙂 .
2 2″squares are more than enough to tide me over til the next meal when on the run. Read more
Some times perusing the interwebs brings me across a random recipe that i didn’t even know I was looking for 😉
Here is one that I have modified to my own tastes, well actually my kids tastes. I have tried all sorts of Paleo Pancake recipes and they have liked none of them…
I’ve used sweet potato, almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca and various combinations of them. For some reason I never ever thought of using the plantain flour I had in my cupboard.
Until now!!! We have a winner folks!!
Back in the 90s , there was an awesome magazine from Britain called “Food Illustrated” It was over sized, glossy, hardly had any advertising and focused solely on great food from around the world. It had big artsy pictures, talked about sustainability and organics before it was all trendy and cool. Most of all, I found it truly inspiring… Then it was bought out by a huge grocery chain called “Waitrose” and, well, down hill it went 🙁 Read more
So, I just happened to be trolling through my Facebook feed when I happened upon a post by a friend recommending an upside down cake.. a coconut banana upside down cake!!
Now when I was growing up, my mother was not a great cook, but what she did make well was an awesome pineapple upside down cake. So you can see why this new recipe headline may have caught my eye.
One look at the recipe and I knew that I could convert it to be acceptable to those of us following a paleo framework. Read more
