Paleo Diet Salad Dressing: Some Recipes Put To The Test

Before you start reading, I have to let you in on a little secret:  I’m really not the biggest fan of salad dressing. Pale diet salad dressing though, I’m undecided. Most of the recipes I’ve found are based on things like vinegars and fruit juices. Not sugary fruit juices, proper fruit juices from freshly squeezed juices. This is good news for us, because even though I wouldn’t recommend eating fruit more than a few times a week, it is still an excellent source of vitamins. Vitamin C is instrumental in the body’s fight against infection, for example. You already knew that though, because you are smart!

Garlic And Lemon Juice Paleo Diet Salad Dressing

Ingredients:

  • Garlic: Minced, one tablespoon
  • Ginger: Use a grater to get it really fine, match the amount of garlic you use
  • Honey: Again, match the amount of garlic you use
  • Vinegar: Try apple vinegar, and use around four times the amount of garlic
  • Coriander: Use half as much coriander as you did garlic, coriander is pretty potent
  • Oil of your choice: Olive oil is good!
  • Spices: Salt and pepper to your taste

How to make:

  • Add all the ingredients into a blender or a food processor and blend until smooth and fluid enough to be poured
  • Keep in a seal-able container in the fridge for later, or eat it right now, it’s your choice!

 

Pineapple And Lime Paleo Diet Salad Dressing

Ingredients:

  • Lime: One whole lime, squeezed. Or for something different try to pulp it!
  • Pineapple juice: About half a cup would be good
  • Ginger: Grind the ginger for best results, or grate it, either or!

How to make:

  • Easy, liquify everything, either just by relying on the methods of preparation or by putting the ingredients for the salad dressing in a blender

That’s it! Enjoy. This one is great on something like a breakfast salad or a fruit salad.

 

Super Creamy Curried Paleo Salad Dressing

Ingredients:

  • Lime: Juice from one fruit is enough.
  • Orange: Pulp it, but make sure it has been peeled and de-seeded.
  • Garlic: Crush one clove.
  • Curry powder: Of your choice and to your taste. Try one teaspoon first.
  • Avacado: Two is perfect, and make sure that they have been peeled and de-pipped.
  • Water: One cup.
  • Himalyan rock salt: About half a teaspoon.
  • Cinnamon: A quarter teaspoon.

How to make:

  • Put it all in a blender and let it rip until it’s all creamy and delicious.

This paleo salad dressing recipe can be served on all salads and will work very well on some meat such as chicken or beef strips. Awesome!

Salads are quite a core part of the paleo diet due to their simplicity and super low carbohydrate content. They work really well in summer too because they are cool and easy to eat. You can make great paleo smoothies with salads too, all you do is take old salad ingredients and put them in a blender and you are good to go!

I hope you enjoy these great paleo salad dressing recipes, I certainly do!

Keep well,
Andrew.

 

Paleo Beef Stew

Few meals are as complete as a paleo beef stew,

you get protein in the form of succulent beef cuts and great minerals and vitamins from the heaps of vegetables used. Most paleo beef stew recipes are pretty resourceful as well, and can be made from leftover’s and almost anything. The recipe I list below is great for those cold nights or for planning for the week. The below recipe should feed around 5-8 people.

paleo-beef-stew

Paleo Beef Stew Ingredients:

  • 500-800 grams of beef. You can use any cut you like, stewing beef is pretty cost effective!
  • Vegetables: I’d say an equal amount of veggies to meat is good. This will ensure the meal is hearty and dense. Brocolli, carrots, onions, patty-pans, all good!
  • Water
  • Beef stock: You can either “cheat” and use a stock cube or liquid stock or make your own. Making your own will ad quite a bit of time to your cooking and preperation times though, so be mindful of that fact.

How to prepare:

  • Dice the meat if you have to. Keep the pieces bite sized, small pieces will be frustrating to eat, and large pieces will require more than one utencil.
  • Dice the vegetables.
  • Bring some water to the boil and add the stock.
  • Brown the meat in a pan for flavour. 

How to cook: 

  • Add the veggies to the water and cook for aroun 5 minutes.
  • Add the meat and leave to cook for around 30 minutes. You can extend this period to get more tender meat, so adjust as per your requirements.
  • Serve and enjoy!

See? How easy was that paleo beef stew recipe to make? My girlfriend and I made this last night for some of our friends, and today I’m eating it for lunch at the office! It is absolutely delicious, and totally paleo. For a different cooking method, why not use a crock pot and make some slow cooked beef stew? I’ve written some previous stuff on crock pot paleo recipes, click here to check it out!

 

The Caveman Diet Series Episode 2: Caveman Diet Breakfast

So previously in episode 1 of the caveman diet series, I spoke about what it might require of you to handle sticking to the paleo diet when eating with friends and family, specifically when dealing with food cooked for you by them. I touched on issues like pasta and bread and how refusing certain foods might come across the wrong way to some people. I’ve encountered this more times than I can count now, and it really doesn’t change. The only “tolerance” I’ve found is when people start to expect you to say no, and so simply don’t offer you the food they prepare for themselves. I consider this a good compromise between the stress of having to say no to someone, and then respecting your choices in food.

It’s not as bad as that may sound though, you just have to deal with some interesting reactions every now and then is all! Some people have asked me why, and that’s an easy question to answer when you understand the theory of why the paleo diet is as awesome as it is. Most people however ask me how, how I keep to the diet, how i dont treat the diet as a fad or quick fix, and how they can get started applying the diet to their own life. An interesting, though not so surprising point of interest is the caveman diet’s complete unacceptance of grains, and that means bread. As you are more than likely well aware, it isn’t rocket science to work out that bread isn’t a healthy food. People though, aren’t sure or rather, aware of just how bad grains and bread are for the body. That was discussed in a previous post, but I’ll discuss the issue of grain in depth in future posts.

For this episode of the caveman diet series of posts, I’ll touch on what it takes to make an awesome caveman diet breakfast that will give you sufficient amounts of nutrients with a nice dose of calories to keep you going.

Caveman Diet Breakfast: Easy, Cheap and Resourceful

What makes a great breakfast? Well, according to Tim Ferriss, you should eat 30grams of protein within 30-60 minutes of waking up. Why? Because your body will ramp up its metabolism and in doing so spike fat burning. The concept is part of Tim’s complete fascination with making the body as efficient as possible with the least amount of required effort. Think of it as a minimum effective dose to produce a notable change in your body. Simple, really. If you are interested in more Tim Ferriss, you should check out his book “The 4 Hour Body”, click here for more information!

caveman-diet-breakfast

With Tim’s 30 gram as soon as waking requirement as a big basis for our super caveman diet breakfast, we are going to use eggs. We are going to overshoot the requirement to insure that our bodies get what they need. For caloric density, I have spoken about using small amounts of legumes for their high calorie numbers. This is frowned upon, and ultimately I’d recommend not eating legumes ever. I experimented adding beans to the meal to see what sort of benefit they would have to the meal. I will discover what is required to increase caloric density and add it the recipe, that will require another post.

Ingredients:

  • Eggs: I usually use 3
  • Vegetables: Broccoli, carrots, zuchinnis etc. Caulliflower is good too.
  • Spinach: Heaps of spinach. Possibly one of the worlds best wonder foods, with excellent minerals and vitamins.

How to prepare:

  • Blend eggs in a bowl
  • Mix in ingredients

How to cook:

  • You are basically cooking an omellette, sans the milk.
  • Add some salt and pepper to the mix to taste.

I usually just cook the mixture with a lid on top of the pan, and cook until it’s a nice thick meal all on it’s own. There is quite a nice dose of protein with a decent amount of calories from the vegetables. It is super low carb and will make you feel full too. Add something like tobasco to the top to give it some bite!

I hope you find this quick paleo breakfast recipe as awesome and convinient as I do!

Keep well,

Andrew

Paleo Muffin Recipes: Blueberry, Banana and Pumpkin Muffins!

Paleo Muffin Recipes

I love muffins.

Or rather I used to love muffins!

You see on the paleo diet, you can’t eat bread, and no bread means no wheat or grains, and no wheat or grains generally means no muffins or scones! Now I love the paleo diet, but that’s pretty sad…

I’ve recently done some searching online though and found some great paleo friendly muffin recipes. Yup, they really do exist. For the most part they substitute regular cake flour for almond flour, and honey for sugar. This is great for us as modern day cavemen who have a sweet tooth.

Below I’ve collected three paleo muffin recipes from around the web which look to be easy to make with relatively simple ingredients

Paleo Banana Muffins Recipe

This recipe should make about 5-10 muffins

paleo-banana-muffins-recipe

 

What you’ll need:

  • Almond flour: 1.5 cups
  • Baking soda: half a teaspoon
  • Baking powder (You could experiment with leaving this out): also half a teaspoon
  • Flaxseed:  2 tablespoons
  • Ground Cinnamon: 1 teaspoon
  • Bananas: At least two ripe bananas
  • Eggs: 2
  • Salt: a pinch
  • Nutmeg: a pinch too!
  • Honey: 1 tablespoon
  • Olive oil: 1 tablespoon

  • Mix the bananas, honey, eggs, vanilla and olive oil in another bowl
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix until the mixture is smooth
  • Gently put some of the mixture into each baking cup or into each hole in your baking tray. Don’t fill up the holes as the mixture will rise somewhat when it is being baked.
  • Bake the muffins for around 25 minutes and check to see if they are cooked correctly
  • Remove the muffins when they are cooked all the way through. An easy way to check this is to use a toothpick and make sure that the muffin is dry the whole way through
  • Put the muffins somewhere to cool for around 15 minutes
  • EAT!

Paleo Blueberry Muffins Recipe

Makes around 8 muffins

paleo-blueberry-muffins-recipe

What you’ll need:

  • Almond flour: 1 cup
  • Almond butter: 1 cup
  • Eggs: 3
  • Honey: Half a cup
  • Coconut: Must be unsweetened for obvious reasons, no sugar! About a third of a cup is good!
  • Coconut oil: Melted and about a third of a cup is fine
  • Baking soda: Half a teaspoon
  • Baking powder: Half a teaspoon

  • Cinnamon: Also a pinch!
  • Blueberries: Should be fresh! About half a cup

How to bake:

  • Make sure your oven is preheated to around 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Mix everything together in a bowl until smooth! Add the dry ingredients after first mixing all the wet ingredients together.
  • Put the mixture into your baking tray/holder of choice.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes. The muffins will rise!
  • Remove and allow to cool.
  • Enjoy!

 

Paleo Pumpkin Muffins Recipe

Makes around 15 muffins

paleo-pumpkin-muffins-recipe

What you’ll need:

  • Coconut flour: Half a cup
  • Baking powder: Half teaspoon
  • Baking soda: Half teaspoon
  • Cinnamon: Two tablespoons (Ground)
  • Nutmeg: Half a teaspoon (Ground)
  • Ginger: Half a teaspoon (Powder)
  • Cloves: A quarter teaspoon (Ground)
  • Salt: Half a teaspoon
  • Canned Pumpkin: One cup
  • Eggs: Four
  • Honey: Quarter cup
  • Olive oil: Two to three tablespoons
  • Vanilla extract: One tablespoon
  • Pumpkin seeds: Just to put on top!

How to bake:

  • Make sure the oven is preheated to around 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Combine the dry ingredients and then pour in/mix in the wet ingredients, keep mixing until as smooth as possible!
  • Fill your muffin tray/cups about three quarters of the way as the mixture will rise somewhat.
  • Cook for around 20 minutes.
  • Leave to cool, and then eat and enjoy!

So there are three great paleo muffin recipes, my personal favourite is likely to be the banana or the blueberry, although when I try make them I’ll have to see, I have a suspicion that the pumpkin muffin recipe is going to surprise me! Hopefully I’ll be able to try them this weekend.

Let me know how these paleo muffin recipes work out for you!

Paleo Cookbooks: Practical Paleo: A Customized Approach to Health and a Whole-Foods Lifestyle

I love primal and paleo cookbooks. What caught my eye on this currently un-realesed cookbook was how in the titlePractical Paleo: A Customized Approach to Health and a Whole-Foods Lifestyle‘, the author, Diane Sanfilippo, speaks about customising. 

The term “customising” really resonates with me, as I like to make things work for me. There is little point in approaching something without a prospect of making that something individualised and customised to my specific tastes and requirements. In this case that would be specific needs within my diet and lifestyle. Remember that you can personalise your diet right down to what specific nutrients you are getting from the foods you are eating.

About the author of Practical Paleo: A Customized Approach to Health and a Whole-Foods Lifestyle

Diane Sanfilippo is regarded as being one of the easiest to read voices in the paleo diet community, and is recommended by medical practitioners to their patients for aid to various nutrition-based health issues. Diane is known for being a clear and positive energy when communicating on and giving advice about the paleo diet and what it means to eat for the body. She appears to be completely focused on helping people achieve optimum health in their lives, and encourages people to perform at their maximum.

She holds a Bachelor of Science from Syracuse University and is also a qualified nutrition consultant. She has particular knowledge in sugar level management and how certain foods affect the digestive processes in the body. Dian owns and runs her own blog, balancedbites.com and offers advice in podcasts which she publishes weekly.

Overall, this looks to be a great addition to the paleo diet movement and I am certainly going to be buying myself a copy of her hardcopy when it becomes available to purchase.

Paleo Fish Recipes: Fish Provencal

Chicken Provencal is a traditional French comfort food, this variation, fish Provenal takes an old classic, and swaps the chicken for fish, while still retaining the large quantities of vegetables in a rich a tomato base.

It’s a really great way to boost your protein intake without worrying about an increase in your fat intake. Certain fish are rich in Omega 3, so using these fish in this dish is a great way to introduce this powerful brain food into your diet. The top 5 Omega 3 rich fishes are; Salmon, Mackerel, Smelt, Shad and Sardines. For a more mild flavour, white fishes such as Hake can be used.

This meal is also a great meal that can be made in advance, and portioned out for paleo work lunches or pre prepared paleo dinners.

Paleo Granola Bars

Granola bars are usually packed in your backpack when you go hiking and need a snack to keep your body going and your hunger at bay. Unfortunately, these delicious bars aren’t paleo and usually contain grains and weird preservatives. Paleo granola bars then need to be void of grains and anything that wouldn’t work in the paleo diet.

For the most part, these grains are replaced by nuts and seeds, where the “normal” supermarket variety granola bars are full of grains and things like oats and rice. While they contain fruit and nuts, they also contain  heaps of sugar.  

So how do we make delicious paleo granola bars that are good enough for kids to eat and easy enough to take on a hike or mountain bike ride?

Lets see!

paleo-granola-paleomunch.com

Super Nut Based Paleo Granola Bars

These bars are pretty easy to make if you have all the ingredients lying around. There is actually a good chance you might if you do lots of paleo cooking!

What you’ll need:

  • Depending on the quantity you want to make, around 2.5 cups of nuts
  • Dried fruit
  • Shredded coconut, about the same amount as the nuts you use
  • Coconut oil, around a quarter cup will work fine
  • You can add honey for sweetness, try half a cup to start with
  • Add a little bit of salt
  • A touch of vanilla

How to prepare:

  • Crush or cut up the nuts and seeds and throw them into a bowl
  • Depending on what kind of texture you want in your paleo granola bars, break up half of the nuts and seeds pretty roughly and use a food processor to make the remaining nuts and seeds a little finer
  • Add fruit into the bowl along with the dried coconut

How to cook:

  • Use a pan on the stove to cook the honey, vanilla, oil, salt and cinnamon(if you like). Just keep cooking at a medium heat until some bubbles start forming
  • Pour the mixture(which by now should be smelling awesome!) over the nut and fruit mixture
  • Stir the mixture making sure that everything it’s all blended properly
  • Press the mixture into a baking tray lined with wax paper. Make sure the mixture is compacted properly
  • Let the mixture cool for around 3 hours and then cut it up into bar sized portions

Once you have all the bars cut out, you can package them however you’d like. Perhaps keep it simple and use some kids school lunch bags?  

Because of the relatively large amount of calories present in this recipe due to the nuts, you might want to limit the size of bars if they are intended for your kids. If you are planning on using them for a hiking or high intensity exercise snack like mountain biking, make them however big you want!

They should keep pretty well too, so make a lot and keep them in your bag at work!

Keep well,
Andrew

The Caveman Diet Series Episode 1: How To Eat Like A Modern Caveman In A Modern World

First and foremost, is there a  difference  between the cavemen diet and the paleo diet?

In short, no there isn’t, at least not to me. While I think that there may actually be many different “versions” of the paleo diet and what it aims to achieve, there really is only one main channel of knowledge that contributes to you ultimately living and eating according to it’s philosophies.

Philosophies?  Yes… In case you haven’t realised, a diet is near completely based on your psychological ability to handle it’s requirements and laws. Basically, if you can’t decipher a diet’s syntax (set of rules), then you are either being taught the diet by someone who doesn’t fully internalise the diet and it’s psychological requirements, or the diet is of  weak principles.  

Having said that, this article series isn’t necessarily aimed at teaching you what the caveman diet or the paleo diet is all about, but rather it is aimed at providing you with some solutions to problems a  modern day caveman may encounter when interacting with the world and the people in it. This includes people at work and home alike.

The Caveman Diet: Where To Eat

So the first thing you may ask is where to eat as a caveman. This will largely be determined by what sort of food  you enjoy.  If you like meats, eat at steak houses or restaurants which serve a  variety  of meats and are known for offering options like vegetables and salads. I’ve learnt that depending on the establishment, the  concept  of a salad is very different. Ideally, you should get your salad without any weird additions to it, like crutons or salad dressing. This is actually pretty difficult to achieve, as you have to  specifically ask to not have either of those added.  

I’ve also found that eating out at places like family restaurants where burgers, schnitzels and battered foods are the staple order is next to impossible. Places like these generally only offer meals that will  take your paleo principles and shove them in your face.  The menu’s here only offer foods which are encrusted with grains and generally terrible foods cooked in less than ideal ways.  Leave the family vibe restaurants for unhealthy people who will  inevitably  breed unhealthy kids.

The exception to this rule are places which are a little off the grid, such as destination restaurants, you know, the kind that has pools and jungle gyms for the kids to play in and on. These generally offer great paleo OK meals such as lamb and vegetable stews and eisbein  etc.  While you may find yourself having to travel a bit to find these places, the food they serve will at least be good to eat!

How to deal with friends and family chosen venues?

This is a little tricky, because you naturally are obliged to go where they choose. In an ideal world, there would be a great menu with awesome food choices at all of these places, but sadly the world encourages generally terrible eating habits. Most people aren’t aware of what a good diet is,  remember that.  So in some cases you might actually have to  defend your caveman diet  menu choices, and in other, easier scenarios you might actually teach some people about good nutrition.

In general, you can find something to eat on most menus, and where there are some sticky points to every dish, you can ask for those no-no foods to not be included in the meal. This may come across to others as you being a fussy person, and in reality you are because well,  the paleo diet is fussy, so choose simple meals with easy to leave out ingredients.

the-caveman-diet-family-death-food.
Some typical paleo destroying family restaurant food.

Dealing with your parent’s or family’s own cooking

This is tricky, and in the past I’ve actually broken code and  just eaten whatever they have made.  This is always going to be a sticky issue, unless you have a chilled out family that doesn’t mind you saying no to what they have made for you.

the-caveman-diet-family-pasta
Some typical family pasta. Pasta is impossible for the paleo diet to cater for!

As the image above describes, pasta will more than likely be enemy number 1. This is difficult to deal with at the best of times, and will probably you require you to cite gluten intolerance in order to not hurt any feelings.

Strategies that might make it easier for you to stick to the caveman diet in a modern world:

  • Eat before you go to someones house who you know  doesn’t eat well or eat paleo
  • Order salads at restaurants or meals with obvious vegetable content
  • Cook for yourself and your family and teach them about what it means to eat for the body
  • Try and enjoy the experimentation with foods

As with all my articles, the ideas I express are completely from my own experience and you might have some better ones! If so, feel free to comment and share!

Keep strong!

Stuffed Pork Chop Recipes: 3 To Try!

If you’ve been reading PaleoMunch for a while you’ll certainly have noticed that I absolutely  love  pork. It is a very underated meat that seems to get slapped by people as being unclean and requiring a lot of cooking. I enjoy pork when it’s cooked to be really juicy and tender, and I generally go for pork fillet or tenderloin to get it. However, nothing can beat a good few stuffed pork chop recipes cooked  paleo style  with some fresh vegetables.

I first experimented with stuffing meat cuts with chicken, and that subsequently spread to me trying out pork and beef cuts as well. The trick with pork is to get a  thick cut chop, and make a  small incision for stuffing it. The actual stuffing can usually be achieved with one finger only. Easy!

stuffed-pork-chop-recipes

Stuffed Pork Chop Recipes!

Onion, Garlic and Mushroom Stuffed Pork Chops

Onion, garlic and mushrooms go  so  well together. Check out this awesome recipe, serve on a bed of  cauliflower  mash or at a push sweet  potato  mash.

What you’ll need:

  • 2  thick  cut pork chops (at least an inch,  preferably  1.5inches thick!)
  • Onions
  • Mushrooms
  • Garlic
  • Salt & spices for the chops

How to  prepare:

  • Dice the onions and mushrooms pretty small
  • Boil the cauliflower/sweet potato
  • Cut a small slit in the side of the pork chop, sometimes you can get away with cutting the slit  on the bone side of the chop.  Otherwise just cut into the actual meat part of it. Push your finger into the meat of the chop and wiggle it around to make some room. Be careful to not tear through the top or bottom of the chop.

How to cook the stuffing:

  • Heat up a pan to a medium heat and pour your choice of oil into it
  • Add the onions and cook until  translucent
  • Add the mushrooms and cook until its  almost  ready and add the garlic

How to cook the pork chops:

  • Stuff the pork chops  liberally  with the stuffing, even if it pops out of the chop it’s OK
  • Drizzle the chops with olive oil or the oil of your choice
  • Salt the chops, this is important. For some reason salt is magical on pork
  • Cook at a medium heat in the oven. It’s important, especially with thick meats to cook them slowly. Because pork actually really isn’t that great raw, you should cook the chops until they are cooked all the way through

Serve and enjoy!

Note: Simply apply the top methods where appropriate with the following other stuffed pork chop recipes!

Spinach and Butternute Stuffed Pork Chops

What you’ll need:

  • Obviously the pork chops
  • Spinach leaves, I like baby spinach
  • Butternut cubes

How to prepare:

  • Make sure the butternut is pre-cooked and cut small enough to mash or be pushed into the pork chop easily

How to cook:

  • Stuff the pork chops with the spinach and butternut. This is up to you, I had to sort of mash up the butternut a bit to get it into the chops
  • Drizzle the pork chops with oil and salt
  • Cook on medium to low heat in the oven
  • Remove when properly cooked

Enjoy! This is probably my  favorite  recipe here…!

Sun-dried Tomato and Olive Stuffed Pork Chops

What you’ll need:

  • Olives
  • Sundried  tomatoes
  • Again, awesome, fat pork chops

How to prepare:

  • Mix the olives (de-seed if necessary) and the  sun-dried  tomatoes
  • Stuff the pork chops to the brim. I absolutely love the  flavor  the combination of olives and  sun-dried  tomatoes
  • Drizzle the chops with olive oil and of course, add the salt

How to cook:

  • Put the chops in the oven on a medium heat and cook slowly until delicious and juicy

Serve on a bed of vegetables and if you like, with a glass of red wine. Delicious.

And there you have three simple stuffed pork chop recipes. I love pork and pork chops are easy and great to serve for parties or guests because they are easy to cater for numbers wise.
