Paleo Beef Curry

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post. Did you miss me? 🙂 The reason for my absence, is because I’m working on a new project at home (more of that in future posts). As a result, I’ve simply not had the time, or energy, to photograph and write about all the grub-tastic…

Pistachio-Crusted Salmon

Another great dish for a dinner party. Choose wild salmon fillets from your fishmonger. You can’t beat the taste, and they’ll be much bigger than those you’ll find in the supermarket. The pistachio crust can be prepared the night before. Just cover the dish with clingfilm and pop it in the fridge overnight. NB. Shelled…

Pork Chops with Balsamic Glaze

I also used it in the salmon dish yesterday. Serves 4 Prep: 15 minutes. Cooking: 20 minutes 4 boneless…

I absolutely love the food choices and can’t believe I’ve not missed eating bread, and more importantly, lentils and chickpeas! I’ve still enjoyed the odd glass of wine or three; old habits die hard! But in the…

Paleo – Day 4

Well can you believe it? I’ve lost 4lbs! I had to weigh myself three times this morning just to make sure I wasn’t seeing things. I’m dumbfounded and pleased in equal measure! I’ve been drinking a couple of litres of water throughout the day, although I’m pretty confused as to the correct amount of water…

Paleo: The Journey

So after much debate (mainly with myself!), I’m beginning day 1 of my 30 day journey on the paleo diet. You can read more about the paleo diet here, but basically it involves eating the types of foods presumed to have been eaten by early humans – so that’s lots of fresh vegetables, some fruit,…
