It hasn’t been a perfect week. That’s the summary. But eating Paleo has been a surprisingly easy change, especially with the amount of great information out there. One of the best resources I’ve found is Nom Nom Paleo. She has an incredible recipe index with big pictures and the iPad app has step by step, picture by picture instructions. Last night we made this:
This recipe calls for fish sauce, coconut aminos, coconut vinegar, basil, mint, cilantro and green onions in addition to the cauliflower, onions, mushrooms,bacon, egg and coconut oil that makes up the “rice” itself. We just made the “rice” because we were topping it with a mango chicken stir fry that we’d made. But the point in, this is rice made out of CAULIFLOWER. That’s awesome. It’s way less filling (in a carby kind of way) that actual rice, but still satisfying and sauce absorbing. A great compromise.
On another note, does anyone else BodyRock? I’ve been following them on and off for the past 9 months and I have to say, when I don’t have time to go for a run, the 12 minute circuit is a great option! Plus, it works different muscles and is helping me get into shape for my upcoming city league volleyball season (3 teams this fall!). If you want something quick, simple (but definitely not easy!) and that you can do at home, BodyRock is a great option!
