Have you discovered a food or recipe that has blown your mind since starting paleo?
This isn't the healthiest paleo food, but bacon sausage is even better than bacon.
I always had a little bit of butter here and there, but I have learned to thoroughly enjoy my Kerrygold butter, even just by itself.
I've been a Milk Chocolate girl my whole life, so I had to inch my way up to the 90% dark I enjoy now. It's wonderful and a perfect end to my day with a cup of tea!
man, where to start? not really "discovered" through Paleo, but certainly Paleo
-roast bone barrow with parsley or heck, just by itself with sea salt.
-hollandaise sauce. i am going to invent my own diet and call it "the Hollandaise Sauce Diet" because the stuff is too awesome when made properly.
-seared beef heart done according to Chris Cosentino's recipe from his Offal Good blog.
new recipes in the repertoire:
-thai pork sausage. recipe: one pound ground pork, salt and pepper, some crushed red pepper flakes, half teaspoon anchovy paste (to replace fish sauce and don't worry people its subtle), 1/4 cup or so chopped cilantro, a teaspoon tablespoon of green curry paste (i use the store bought "thai kitchen" stuff but you could use fresh lemongrass and galangal if you have it), 2 cloves chopped garlic (de-stem your garlic!), a little chili powder, the zest of one lemon and a tablespoon of coconut oil. Mix together well, make into patties and fry up in a pan. Throw a poached egg on top for good measure.
-This lamb kabob recipe from Jamie Oliver, which I do without pistachios (never have them around) and obviously without the "flatbread"or whatever. The sumac is a must though. Works equally well with ground beef http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/lamb-recipes/grilled-lamb-kofta-kebabs-with-pistachio
ooh i forgot something.... pork jowls! you think bacon is good? .......
Heavy cream, of course. Whipped with some vanilla and berries, it doesn't get any better.
Macadamia nuts, little salty crunchy fatty balls of goodness. MMM. If only they weren't so expensive.
And Green and Black's 85. I do not eat other chocolates, only this kind. It is delicious. Awesome. Wonderful. Heavenly. Sweet. Slightly bitter. And oh so good.
Just noticed these are all fat based. So I guess the most delicious thing I have discovered on paleo is just how very good fat tastes.
I have a new-found appreciation for being slipped a little organ meat now and then.
Seriously, if you had told me a couple of years ago how much I would end up enjoying eating unconcealed offal I would have scoffed (and taken another bite out of my hot dog).
Brussels sprouts roasted with bacon! I never enjoyed brussels sprouts because, well, my mom isn't the best at making vegetables; she just steams them all to hell. I went and got some sprouts a couple months ago, cut them in half, tossed with olive oil, chopped raw bacon, and some Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute, baked at 425 for about 35 minutes, and they have been my obsession ever since. I make them twice a week now, can't get enough!
I have always liked french food, and by discovering paleo i understand why its so healthy. Many things are more paleo than you would believe, foie grass is like having sex with twins, no, its better! It would be so easy to eat paleo in france, good ingredients, all the offal you could want, Èchire butter, Comte cheese etc. And noboby would give you strange looks for asking some tripe! :) My diet was quite paleo even before i discovered it, actually i only needed to drop the bread and rapeseedoil. And i only used rapeseed oil because couldnt afford more duck fat. :)
Now i use bone marrow alot, i dont use tallow so much anymore, bonemarrow is basic french bistro staple. I use marrow for flawor, i think it goes well with most green vegetables to the mild grassy aroma. Cabbageor broccoli braised in bone marrow is great, and cheap food. Top that with little comte etc and broil a moment.
