What are your favorite paleo comfort food?
I'd love to see you qualify it as a new comfort food since going paleo OR an old comfort food that you made paleo.
Looking for some inspiration for the week!!
Mine is a smashed banana, an egg, a couple tbsp of vanilla almond butter, some cacao powder and a touch of honey...microwaved for 3 minutes, and then whip up some heavy cream and a few blueberries on top of it.
Normally, I just eat whole foods-- few things hit the spot better than a grilled grass fed steak.
I don't like to do a lot of Paleo fakery (not a fan of "paleo baking", for the most part), it's difficult to get the texture of baked goods correct, plus it tends to get my cravings going, but the two items listed below have become staples in my (pretty strict) diet:
Zoodles (zucchini noodles)-- they actually taste like pasta and they're just zucchini and nothing else. I've had them almost every day this week (recipe found here: www.livefabuLESS.com/zoodles)-- I used them in a stir fry, topped them with pesto, topped them with just garlic and oil.
And, I just discovered how to make paleo "ice cream"-- just whirl frozen bananas with fresh fruit of your choice (I used fresh cherries, as they're in season) and add a splash of either cream (if dairy works for you) or coconut milk-- and whirl in the blender until smooth. OMG-- it's heavenly. Check out the droolworthy picture here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=337678166316070&set=a.167527789997776.43825.167451376672084&type=1&theater
1 chicken breast - Diced to make it bite sized pieces - fry in pan 1/3 of lb of jimmy dean natural sausage - a little salt but oh well. 5 eggs sliver of Kerrygold if you're into that thing
Cook in that order
1 can lite coconut milk + 1 cup cocoa powder + dash vanilla + stevia to taste
1 can reg coconut milk + 3/4 cup cocoa powder + dash vanilla + stevia to taste
Also, current fav: Crock Pot Stew.
3 hours on high. YUM!
Chicken and kale soup. I adore that stuff, and the only Paleo change is to leave out the cannellini beans. (Beans are my main cheat. I really just love them so so so much. I'll take them over cupcakes any day!)
