Random Amusings

My journal to become the healthiest I can be

The treasure trove!!

I've discovered that searching for paleo (aka caveman diet) and primal blueprint (same idea, slightly different) recipes are producing more fruitful results than gluten free.  Since I'm not supposed to have rice or grains, the paleo (which basically avoids anything from the agricultural revolution 10,000 years ago) diet helps out a lot - their breads are made of seeds, rather than grains.

First, an interesting read into how different sweeteners act in our bodies: http://www.health-bent.com/blog/crash-course-on-sugar

Individual recipes


http://www.whatrunslori.com/2011/07/paleo-breakfast-bake/ - This would be REALLY good with spinach added, too!  :)

http://www.scrawnywod.com/2011/01/paleo-breakfast-casserole.html - More substantial... could probably bake this in mini-loaf pans for hubs to take to work with him.

Main Dishes

http://www.health-bent.com/salads/bratwurst-german-potato-salad-paleo-style - Potato salad using turnips instead.  I like!

http://www.health-bent.com/poultry/paleo-chicken-bog - Chicken and rice, but that I can eat!!

Side dishes/munchies

http://www.scrawnywod.com/2011/01/baked-kale-chips.html - For when you get munchies for something crunchy and tangy

http://www.health-bent.com/sides/oven-fried-green-tomatoes - Sounds GREAT with chicken or tuna salad

I WILL be making many of these recipes in the near future.  As I attempt them, I'll let you know what happens and what I think.  Oh, my tummy is already singing a very happy, happy song.
