First few days of Paleo…

Posted: September 5, 2012 in Uncategorized

I haven’t started a food journal yet.  Perhaps out of inertia to find an app, or maybe because I’m still using a Windows phone.  I’m looking for an easy way to jot everything down.  But here’s what I’ve got so far:

Slice of turkey and a banana as I run out the door this morning.  (Dropped the kids off for their first day of school!!)  Kale and eggs for a late breakfast.  Sprinkle kale with “Ras el Hanout”. (see below)  Cooked up some garlic-marinated fresh tuna last night… on a bed of salad, fresh tomatoes, cucumber.  Snacking on lots of raw almonds.  MRM Egg White protein shake for lunch.  MRM ReLoad BCAA’s throughout the day.  Tonight, Grilled steak or chicken over a big salad.  No dressing… you don’t need it with the meat juices.  Don’t forget avocados… slice them up at the end.  Maybe a beet and kale salad with grated carrots.

Here’s the “Ras el Hanout”:  (this is from Well Fed, http://www.amazon.com/Well-Fed-Paleo-Recipes-People/dp/061557226X  It’s a great paleo cookbook with lots of photos!)

2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ginger
2 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

I add in about a tsp of cardamom too… maybe white pepper if I have it.

Mix this up and keep it by the stove.  add it to everything.

Good Eating!
