Wordless Wednesday – The Paleo Way

January 28, 2015
Kale Chips

I’m experimenting with some Paleo recipes with the intention of eliminating a lot of processed foods from my diet and eating more delicious wholefoods to improve the symptoms of my autoimmune diseases (yes I have a few), gut health, general health and vitality, and to assist in shifting some very much unwanted weight.  Here are some photographs of a couple of the recipes I’ve tried over the last few days (the rest were eaten before I thought to photograph them!).  I cooked up some Kale Chips with Garlic and Sun-dried Tomato.  I had never eaten Kale before and was admittedly a little unsure if I would like it!  In fact, I was pretty sure I would very much dislike it!  It was quick and easy to prepare and actually tasted much nicer than I was expecting!  I have learnt that it doesn’t store well though – loses it crunch!  The next day I made some Zucchini and Fennel Fritters.  These took a little more time to prepare but they were not difficult.  I didn’t have the ingredients for the suggested ‘green goddess’ sauce to go over them but I found the freshly squeezed lemon juice was enough flavour to make this a quite delicious dish indeed!  There were leftovers for lunch the next day and I ate them with some aioli – yum!

    I really need to start cutting out processed crap from my diet. My biggest challenge is time (and Trent whose usually the one who suggests takeaway for lunch on hi days off).

      You have to plan ahead and be organised – do meal plans, make up shopping list, shop and be ready. It is time consuming but worth it! 🙂

    Go you Min, so nice to treat our bodies to good food. You’ve just reminded me that I should eat some healthy berries for a snack!

      Thanks Em! I find my body responds better to good food. I allowed myself a ‘treat’ at our anniversary dinner the other night. It was a very non-paleo Sand Crab Lasagne. It tasted devine but I was up all night with an upset tummy. I’ve become a lot more food intolerant – hence my experimentations! 😉 Hope you enjoyed your berries! x

    Fritters are my ultimate comfort food, and I’ve found somewhere close that does really good ones! Maybe a good place for when we finally catch up 🙂

      Oooo I’m very curious now to know where that place is that does yummy fritters Lisa! I hope we get to meet up soon. I could do with some company and like-minded friends to chat with. It gets a bit lonely at home by myself so much! xo

    Those fritters look good…they’d tempt me!!

    • Reply Min January 29, 2015 at 11:11 am

      They were good Lydia. I’ll be making them again! 🙂

    Ugh, I’m sorry but there’s no way I could do paleo given my dislike of green leafy stuff and veges. Great work though (and lovely images!).

      LOL Oh Deb – yes I know about your aversion to green leafy stuff and vegies! Paleo is more than that though. I’ve made some devine roast dinners, a meatloaf, a chicken marylands dish and more! I’ve got some yummy recipes planned to try this week! I wish I could eat whatever I liked but can’t get away with it anymore. I’m feeling good on this food so far! 🙂

    Looks delish!

      They exceeded my expectations! 🙂

    I made kale chips recently to see what the fuss was all about. I loved them! The zucchini fritters look good, I have lots of zucchini at the moment.

      Yes I’ve been curious for some time about Kale Chips too Alicia! I was pleasantly surprised. I had expected to not like them at all but they were nice! Wouldn’t say it was love but I did enjoy them. The fritters are devine! 🙂

    Oh Yum. I am very keen to try some of the paleo recipes I have seen lately and these look so good Min. I love kale – especially kale chips xx

      I was surprised by the Kale Chips Sonia. I’ve seen them around so much and thought I wouldn’t like them. They were not bad at all! I made a beautiful fish dish last night – yummo! 🙂 xo

    We make kale chips in our dehydrator and surprisingly my girls (5 and 2) both love them, so they don’t last long.

    • Reply Min January 31, 2015 at 12:38 pm

      What timing Malinda – I happen to be logged in and responding to comments! haha Oh I would love a dehydrator! Fantastic that your girls love them! From what I’ve read they are full of good stuff and SO good for you! 🙂

    I’m keen on lots of the paleo recipes , though I couldn’t give up bread. Those fritters look so tasty.

    • Reply Min February 2, 2015 at 6:12 am

      I’ve been discovering some delicious new recipes Trish! I thought the same about bread but surprisingly, so far I haven’t missed it! Mind you – I have not been 100% paleo.

    I’m a bit of a fan of the Paleo way of eating. We started down that path about 2 years ago, mostly to benefit one of our children with behavioural issues, what we have found since is that it has been of a big benefit to our whole family. Enjoy xx

    • Reply Min February 10, 2015 at 6:08 pm

      I’m loving all the Paleo food!! I have heard that a Paleo lifestyle helps kids with behavioural issues! I’m doing it to help me with my multiple auto immune problems and hoping that in the process I will also lose some weight! *fingers crossed*!!
