We spend so much time talking here about the things we can't eat. What are my fellow Paleo eaters having for Christmas dinner?
Mine involves roast beef, root vegetables and oranges from Florida.
What about you?
im cooking christmas breakfast, and we are having poached eggs with hollandaise sauce on roasted asparagus with smoked wild salmon, cream cheese, capers and red onions. and LOTS of coffee.
My solo London Christmas dinner will be:
Then off to explore Romania for New Years.
If back home, Christmas would be:
It's 8am on Christmas Eve here in Australia, and my usually-slothful self is up and about, ready to head to the Queen Victoria Market (in Melbourne) to score some vaguely cheap, wild-caught crayfish (lobster), prawns and oysters. Dad has already started on our huge Christmas ham, and there will be all manner of roasts tomorrow for our Christmas lunch down by the beach. There will probably be salads, but since I'm not in charge of lunch, they'll probably be adulterated so I'll avoid them and stick to the meat. Mum has made a sugar- & gluten-free cheesecake, but I won't be indulging. I will probably be making my usual date & nut balls, and perhaps a fruit & nut pudding concoction, but again I'll probably avoid those. I've weighed in - it'll be interesting to see whether I gain at all whilst I'm away!
Merry Christmas! (ie Happy Generic Consumer Holiday!)
I'll be smoking a grass fed brisket and free range turkey. As a matter of fact I'll be putting the rub on the brisket and the turkey in the brine this morning. I think my wife is doing some side dishes (both paleo and non for family) but the brisket and turkey is what I'm craving.
after eating paleo/primal for nearly two years i've decided to go "off the wagon" this christmas. I'm spending christmas at my in-laws' house in a little town in southern Czech Republic and i'll be consuming, and have already started, copious amounts of baked goods, potatoes, and TONS of christmas cookies. Czech people go crazy with homemade christmas cookies and all the girls compete as to who can bake the most. Lots of people bake up to 15 different types of cookies! And on christmas day we've got to eat 13 different meals. There's no hope and honestly i really don't even feel like attempting. Every other time i'm at my in-laws' i'm strictly paleo, so they're getting a huge kick out of watching me stuff my face! I'm trying to see how much weight i can put on in a week, and then how quickly i can get back to my "pre-christmas" weight of 180lbs:)
I'm making rabbit Dutch style.
Marinated in half vinegar, half water, onions, cloves, cinnamon, bay leaf and Spanish pepers over night. Then brown the rabbit and sautée the onions and put them back in the marinade with a bar of dark chocolate, carrots and parsnips.
Local lamb roast with herbs, and I roasted some local fingerlings in the lamb fat. Greens, sauteed with salt pork. Coconut milk chocolate pudding made with grassfed beef gelatin and a hint of honey, topped with whipped heavy cream lightly sweetened with grade B maple syrup, also local. Split a bottle of Farnum Hill Extra Dry Cider with my loving man, and for snacks I sliced up some wild boar salami and used a rock from the back yard to smash open a few walnuts. A little strong coffee to finish.
And there's all kinds of 100% unsweetened gourmet chocolate in my stocking that doesn't know what it's in for over the next few months.
I am a happy paleo! Stuffed myself silly on the lamb and looking forward to a few days of leftovers.
