Free List of Meats & Fish To Eat on The Paleo Diet



What should you eat on the Paleo diet?


   All diets and all ways of living involve one key concept - BALANCE!!!

   Use your head and listen to your body to stay healthy or regain health.  Your body is constantly communicating with you if you will only listen.   When you begin the Paleo remember it's not an all or nothing situation.  Nothing wrong with edging into it and also nothing wrong with straying off it occassionally.  Don't be rigid in your acceptance or rejection of the Paleo, or more correctly, Caveman diet.   Modify your eating habits and move at a comfortable pace that fits what you body is telling you.   This should be fun and you should enjoy the shopping for foods, the new recipes and cooking techniques and find yourself enjoying becoming healthier. 

   In most American diets the key healthy benefits are derived not from what you eat, but what you learn not to eat.   Eliminating bad foods, such as sugars, will work wonders for your health.


    Starting with meats, eat as much as you want for breakfast, lunch & dinner.  Cook the meats simply without too much added fat – broiling, baking, roasting, sautéing or browning, then pouring off excess liquid fat, or stir frying over high heat with a little oil (No deep fat frying except when it's "got to have it!!")  :)

   Are The Ingredients Of The Paleo Diet the Magic, or Is It What Is Not Eaten?

     The Paleo, or Caveman, diet is followed by many looking to lose weight, rectify digestive disorders, and to maintain good health and prevent illnesses.   One of the premises behind the diet is the use of food staples that were used by early human ancestors and those ingredients, because our body is accustomed to the foods, will be able to digest easier and keep us healthy.   With the advent of better food storage and preparation, refrigeration, mobility of food all over the earth,  we've added ingredients in those processes that our body has not evolved to for digestion.   Humans, like all evolutionary creatures, evolve over time to adapt to the environment and the adaptive process enables all living creatures to continue to live and propogate, that including our digestive system.

    What may be the larger component of this diet is it requires the elimination of certain foods from one's diet.   Dairy products, grains, legumes, processed and fast foods are examples of foods that should not be eaten.   Once one begins to eliminate those foods, then some of the benefits of the Paleo diet emerge, but is it due to changing foods in the diet or the elimination of foods known to not be healthy for us?

   My experience, as the chief cook and bottle washer in our house, has been watching the changes of my wife, positive, as a result of her starting the diet.   For years there have been digestive issues she has tried to overcome.   Her diet has included dairy, cereals, cheese, breads etc., as well as elimination of lutens, bleached flours.    On the new diet that the "head cook" prepares for her each night we've modified what we eat, however we've always used fresh, green, colorful and low fat local produced foods.  We are not generally heavy meat eaters and we try to do fresh fish weekly.  My wife though has always had a diet of minimally a bowl of cereal each day, possibly an energy bar or muffin/bagel with cream cheese.   At night she included a cup of ice cream whenvever a half gallon of 'mint chocolate' was available., which is 4-5 nights per week.  When she announced she was starting this diet it was announced to me that I "had to support her and do the diet too", or she could not do it. 
  Of course my response was I'm not the one with the digestive issues, it's you. Reality though was since I prepared the meals the entire family was affected so basically the 2 daughters and myself ended up on the Paleo diet.

    So far my wife seems to be benefitting from this diet, yet for me it's just "new food recipes" to try.   I think my non change may simply be I really don't eat a lot of dairy, hardly ever any ice cream, once a month for cereal, and never a bagel or muffin, and a fast food hamburger is a semi annual thing.   My diet has not been modified greatly however, hers has,  and I wonder if the success she's seeing comes from not eating certain things rather than eating what is prescribed on this diet.

    Of course our 17 and 20 y.o. daughters are still wailing and crying with the familiar mantra - "we want pasta!!" Let's see where this ends up.

Tuna Salad Sandwich With Poached Mint Eggs



Mint Water Poached Egg Tuna Salad Recipe


    At  Herbfest 2010,  a gentleman from Brazil approached me to tell me how his family used mint when he was growing up.  I remembered it and tried it, to my delight.  

   Simple, easy, relaxing as you smell the mint when you cut and continue to smell as you cook.

    I made a very simple tuna salad using fresh ingredients ( you can make one better than I can so I'll not mention how or you might laugh at me!!)

    I had toasted some Sunflower bread and put the tuna salad on it.  Then I  took  Mint - leaves and stalks,  put them in half inch water in iron skillet with water boiling.

    Left them there for about 3-4 minutes and extracted the leaves and  stalks (aroma was wonderful).

    Took the eggs and poached them in my newly minted mint water.   After poaching, put over the tuna, made a simple hollandaise sauce, and

 sprinkled fresh French tarragon over the sauce covering my mint poached egg.

Winter Savory Herb Recipe for Chicken Salad & Marinade




Winter Savory Recipes –

Winter Savory is a great mixing herb.  It blends well with different culinary oreganos, thymes and basils and can be added to meat, poultry or fish.  Its small leaves are the perfect compliment to herb cheeses or as last-minute additions to sautés.  Even though it has a strong flavor when fresh, it does not hold up well to prolonged stewing. Famous for making its mark on beans, dried Savory also perks up stuffings and can be mixed with Sage, Thyme, and Bay. Add to ground Turkey or Pork with Fennel Seed, Cayenne Pepper, and Thyme. Or, add a pinch to Chicken Salad (see below) or hearty soup. There are very few dishes that a little Winter Savory won't make better.

Bonne Herbs Recipe Blend



Bonne Herbs In Egg Recipe


    The local herbs of France find themselves being used not only for flavoring, but also for eye and aromatic appeal.   The herb blend is referred to as "bonnes herbes" and often is added to a plate for color, and sometimes to the food for flavor.  Here is some more information about how the French use the herb blend.

 

Below from:

Susan Belsinger, a longtime contributor to The Herb Companion, co-wrote The Creative Herbal Home (Creative Printing, 2007).

 

    This Parisian mélange is neglected as a seasoning in the United States. A delightful French herb mix of the summer, mostly annual herbs, bonnes herbes (bohn āirbs) is often used as a fresh garnish or added shortly before serving. It is prepared with equal proportions of the herbs, but you can adjust it to suit your taste.
