The latest health craze has made its way into the little kitchen of Sweets and I.
Inspired by the way cave-folks ate – Paleo – is meant to include foods that Tarzan ate. Lots of meats, fish, eggs and veggies and all the spices your heart can dream of and a big fat NO to most of that white fluffy stuff – pasta, bread, sugar, pastries. And a very tragic no to dairy… sweet delicious dairy… in all the cheesy goodness forms it comes.
At this very moment there is a montage playing of me enjoying cheese in various states… the song Secret Lovers by Atlantic Starr is playing. It’s a beautiful moment.
So that’s a pretty simplified and maybe slightly uneducated description of what Paleo means but you can find a fancier explanation here.
Most meals you make at home can be modified in some shape or form to meet Paleo standards – replace bread with butter lettuce or cabbage – sub cheese for avocado – instead of ice cream blend up a frozen banana with some coconut milk – don’t eat a bag of Cheetos.
And for this meal in the kitchen of Sweetie and Kneez – sub couscous for Cauliflower “rice.” And yes I know what you’re thinking – chances are cavemen did not dust off their food processor to “rice” a head of Cauliflower.
But alas it’s 2013 and that’s just want these cave-lovebirds did.
If rice-rice is more your thang than cauli-rice (or couscous) – have at it – carb this sucker up. But one day you should try to sub rice with cauliflower – just to switch things up or try something new – it’s quite delicious!
