With about a 1/3 stick of butter mixed in and a half cup of milk and then mashed, two chicken breasts, marinated in soy sauce and cooked in soy oil and a small plate of stir fried broccoli.
How does that sound for a paleo dinner?
I know that the soy oil isn't optimal but what else would you change?
Potatoes aren't optimal either, are they, but are better than rice - which is what I used to eat.
Can anyone provide a website paleo recipes?
Soy oil is far from "not optimal" even 1 tbs a day can be the difference between optimal health and chronic illness. Here is the why soy oil kills you dead thread http://paleohacks.com/questions/30918/your-favorite-resources-on-why-soybean-oil-is-bad/30928#30928
Paleo times are always a-changin' and we are always looking at exactly what is good and what isn't based upon its positive and negative factors. There is nothing wrong with potatoes except it is probably better to peel them since the peel houses the toxins, particularly glycoalkaloids. Most people still favor sweet potatoes.
Many are accepting of butter. I think there is something nutritionally foul about conventional dairy, and so I would urge you to get pasture-produced butter, preferably raw, or at the very least organic butter.
I think potatoes, chicken, and broccoli sounds just about perfect.
In fact, that's pretty much my dinner a lot of nights.
You gotta ditch that soy oil. Forget is this paleo or whatever, just toss that junk out. Don't gotta be "paleo" to know soy oil is not fit for human consumption (not that I'd give it to my dog either but).
You're doing great, cook all your food like you are and you're there.
Change the chicken to grassfed beef. Change the soy oil to coconut oil. Change the potatoes to sweet potatoes, without the skins. Keep the broccoli. Smother it either in butter or coconut oil if you don't do dairy. Now, that's what I'D eat. :)
I wouldn't eat the soy sauce or soy oil, that would be a deal breaker for me. I also wouldn't eat the potatoes but I'm low carb, if you're not worried about carbs it's probably fine. I'd cut the milk too, use cream instead
Everyday Paleo has great recipes.
Try using herbs and fresh ground spices (or dry that are gluten free, MSG free, sugar free-you'd be surprised whats in some of this stuff if you arent careful) to season your chicken. I use a lot of cumin, salt, pepper. Chicken goes great with rosemary, thyme as well. (i actually cut up a bunch of fresh herbs including bay leaf and stuff under the skin with butter and slow roast)
Definitely stay away from soy in all forms. Pure Seasame oil at the end of a stir fry with fresh ginger will give veggies a fantastic flavor (you wont miss the soy sauce)
plug in paleo or primal recipes and you'll find TONS of recipes and sites.
A lot of people replace rice with riced cauliflower.
If you aren't worried about the carb load switch up potatoes with sweet potatoes, plantanes....but you'll get a lot more bang for your buck flavor wise if you do more green veggies, roasted brussel sprouts with butter are addictive (to me at least).
