I started searching the web for Paleo recipes that I would enjoy and found http://paleodietlifestyle.com/. Some of the next couple recipes you will see here come from this site. I am not a person for which the argument, “you eventually get used to it,” should even be attempted. I will not continue putting something past my lips that I have to “get used to.” No way, no how. If it isn’t tasty, I don’t want anything to do with it. So if I say something is good, to my pallet, it definitely is worth the try. Honestly, I won’t post a recipe that I don’t have the urge to try again, even if I have the urge to alter something.
With that said, my first recipe from the site was the Chicken With Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce http://paleodietlifestyle.com/chicken-sun-dried-tomato-sauce/ which was quite good. The next time I fix the recipe I plan to add just a touch of honey to sweeten the flavour of the sauce. Otherwise it was reminiscent of a dish that I enjoyed at the Sticky Wicket in Victoria BC. I realize that sweets are definitely out in some Paleo programs but I just have to enjoy some sweet, here and there, and stick as close to Paleo as I can when I do.
Remember in a previous post that I noted how amazingly beneficial the asparagus is to the human body so here it is on my plate, again! Quite an excellent meal and one that I recommend that you try as well.
Part of the Paleo diet’s draw is that you don’t have to weigh, measure or count anything, you just eat the foods that are beneficial to your body. However, I’ve opted to start recording what I’m eating so that I can keep track of how consistent I am being. We’ve all heard someone that we’ve spent the day with talk about how “good” they were or how little they eat and realize that they are completely oblivious to the food that they’ve put into their mouth. It will be nice to look back and see how much “unpaleo” food I’ve consumed in a day, especially when I wake up the next morning with or without allergies. I opted to go with https://mynetdiary.com/logonPage.do which I can update both on line and via an app on my phone.
