I stumbled across the Paleo Diet only 3 days ago, and I'm amazed. I still don't know much about the right foods to eat, [I'm waiting for 2 books on the subject to arrive from Amazon.com.] but, in the meantime, I have cut out all my whole wheat grains, and other grains completely. Quite amazing what just 3 days of no grains has done for how much lighter I feel even though I'm quite sure I haven't lost an ounce yet. And most definitely not an ounce from the pot belly I've been carrying around since I was a baby because I'm one of those women who, even when underweight overall, still carries around a "pot."
One of my favorite summer salads is Tabbouli. [a bulgur wheat salad, middle-Eastern, my favorite recipe for which, most ironically, comes from a Jane Brody cookbook that is subtitled "Living the High-Carbohydate Way."]
It was while I was researching just which bulgur wheat to buy that I stumbled on the first of many obviously legitimate Paleo Diet websites and had to completely rethink Tabbouli.
Most of the ingredients are Paleo acceptable, but the bulgur wheat clearly is not.
Is there any substitute for this whole wheat grain that I could use to make a Paleo version of Tabbouli? This salad is so chock full of freshness and divine taste, I think it is the one thing I will have to cry copious tears about not being able to enjoy if I can't find a Paleo acceptable Bulgur wheat substitute.
I could make the salad leaving out the Bulgur, but it would then taste like any other ordinary salad.
Any suggestions, anyone? Or should I go into mourning now and get it over with as soon as possible?
