At times, I do miss the beans and buns with my bbq'd burgers on Saturday. And yes, I miss spaghetti and garlic bread on on Wednesday. I've always liked steaks, so now they're simply grass fed - which took a little change of technique, but hardly a sacrifice!
But I also find wholly new joys in paleo. My wife and I really enjoy playing with novel recipes that take some work and taste delicious. But some simple 'throw it on the grill/in the pot'-type paleo foods that I never ate before are pretty really cool. e.g. I never ate salmon at all much before. Now I can't wait to take out some fresh wild salmon, a cedar plank, throw on a little olive oil and Rock's seasoning that I always keep handy recipe here (w cayenne, coriander, turmeric), and throw 'em on the grill. Nothing could be easier and yield a taste to die for. I still do burgers on Saturday (w/o the bun and beans), but hump day is now Rock's cedar plank grilled salmon day.
What are your super simple staple foods that are new to you in paleo? I could probably work a few more into my week ;-)
